Why Unsealed Spellbook

Unsealed Spellbook's overall utility grants you the ability to adapt to situations where you need more damage for a kill, or defensive power from being killed.

Why Magical Footwear

Magical Footwear allows you to double-down on that gold you're earning from Klepto and Coin by saving you a bunch of gold so that you're able to invest it into **combat stats for the mid game**.

Why Biscuit Delivery

Biscuit Delivery further empowers your ability to out-sustain your lane opponent and helps you survive in machups where you may take a lot of early game damage (Gnar/Rumble).

Why Approach Velocity

Approach Velocity synergizes incredibly well with Nasus' [W] to chase down and stick to your target.


Conditioning makes you into a massive mid game front line tank as it will scale well with any defensive items you buy and continuing scaling into the late game with your infinite scaling damage.


Nasus is a champion who lives and dies by his ability to sustain with his passive. Revitalize massively empower that healing in the mid game where you'll be able to out-duel most other champions.

Why Phase Rush

Non-damaging spells count toward proccing Phase rush so a simple **[W]->[E]->Auto** will let you hunt down your target and resist slows.

Why Nimbus Cloak

Nimbus Cloak's added mobility when casting [R] empowering you to chase down your target for repeated [Q] procs. If you're playing into a number of AP threats, Nullifying Orb is also a great option to keep you alive in close fights.

Why Transcendence

More stacks ASAP. Nasus loves every CDR defensive item and with transcendence you don't have to worry about over-capping.

Why Gathering Storm

Usually when playing Nasus you're looking to come online in the mid to late game. Gathering Storm scales incredibly well along side you while you stack away. Scorch is a solid alternative if you're looking to harass a bit in the laning phase.


Nasus is all about opening the gates. Demolish + [Q] means you're shredding towers in no-time.

WhySecond Wind

Second Wind is a great sustain rune when **playing into difficult match-ups**. Like Doran's Shield, it allows you to mitigate a lot of the chip damage you might take. In easy lanes you can take Revitalize to empower you late game [Q] healing.
