Guide to Countering Jayce as Nasus

Tips for Playing as Nasus against Jayce

Paying attention to last hitting with Siphoning Strike will have a large impact at the end of a game.

If you're solo, Spirit Fire is a great way to farm a lane. It can be bad if you're in a lane with 2 and you push too far. Find the right balance between Siphoning Strike last hits and AoE farming.

If you have low defenses, people will focus you down even during your ultimate. Try buying some survivability items even in your DPS builds.
