Guide to Countering Nami as Nasus

Tips for Playing as Nasus against Nami

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

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

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.

Advice to Win Against Nami

Aqua Prison is a very powerful ability with a long cooldown, take advantage of the situation if Nami misses this ability.

Tidal Wave has a very long range but travels slowly, be aware of when it is coming your way as you can move out of its path.

Try to avoid fighting an opponent affected by Tidecaller's Blessing, it lasts a short duration so waiting it out can help you greatly.
