Nasus often has a slightly smaller longest kill spree than his opponent does. Commonly, Nasus takes more damage than Cassiopeia. This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also illustrate that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to flee from additional harm when engaged or poked.

Nasus usually gets a similar amount of CS than Cassiopeia. Champs that do not amass a lot of minion kills normally don't require much CS to be useful.
