any of the late game powerhouses with a 'weak early game' have had issues in S3.

riot wanted to make the game less snowbally but what they ended up doing was making it so the weak early game picks lose their weakness.

look at the current picks that are issues - vayne, trynd, kass

it was only a matter of time before someone figured out how to abuse nasus or one of those other late game powerhouses.

Life Steal Quints are also broken in their own regard. For the price of about a 6300 IP champ I can get 6% lifesteal. Vamp Scepter gives you ten. You get 60% of a Vamp Scepter for free.




Nasus's passive gives you 140% of a vamp scepter for free.
At level 1.
Balanced.

Only one left is Veigar, although his dedicated playerbase (myself included) have already noticed that dorans ring makes you never run out of mana until like level 9 where you should already have a chalice or tear

So... Change Shield so that it gives the armor bonus again, and then change the passive so that it only blocks damage from ranged attacks?

Teemo doesn't counter nasus. I thought it would but looking at guidees not to long ago they all said nasus was pretty much freelo against teemo.



Yeah he does. Teemo or Kennen can Poke Nasus enough that it hurts and prevent him from farming. You can push him to turret and prevent him from farming effectively. If you cant counter with teemo you're doing it wrong.

And so are shen and zac.

Dorans shield breaks shen so hard, you cannot even abuse him early on anymore.



Nasus Vs shen will have any Nasus player drooling.
