Guide to Playing with Nautilus

  • Activate Titan's Wrath before a teamfight or engage to maximize damage and tankiness.
  • Titan's Wrath shield strength scales with bonus health, so stack up on health items.
  • Use Depth Charge on the enemy's back line, because it will go through enemy champions and knock them up until it hits the target.
