Guide to Countering Nasus

  • Don't let Nasus free farm in lane, as he will continuously gain stacks from Siphoning Strike.
  • Nasus counters melee champions. In the late game, with a good setup and lots of Q stacks, he's nearly undefeatable 1:1. This is especially true if he's able to free farm early.
  • Nasus is weak early game, so keep the pressue on and be aggressive.
