Nasus often has a significant smaller longest kill spree than his opponent does. Commonly, Nasus receives more damage than Lucian. This typically indicates different amounts of tankyness; however, it can also hint that the champ with increased health has less agility and thus is not able to escape further harm when engaged or poked.

Nasus usually earns fewer minion kills than Lucian. Champions who on average don't amass many minion kills usually do not require much CS to be useful. Instead, they are able to scale well off their abilities alone. Yet, champions with plenty of CS, such as hyper-carries, typically require a lot of gold to be useful. In either situation, work to beat the values presented here to do well.
