Nasus

the Curator of the Sands

Fighter Tank

Nasus is an imposing, jackal-headed Ascended being from ancient Shurima, a heroic figure regarded as a demigod by the people of the desert. Fiercely intelligent, he was a guardian of knowledge and peerless strategist whose wisdom guided the ancient empire of Shurima to greatness for many centuries. After the fall of the empire, he went into self-imposed exile, becoming little more than a legend. Now that the ancient city of Shurima has risen once more, he has returned, determined to ensure it never falls again.

Nasus Counter Tips

While transformed by his ultimate, Nasus is stronger than most champions in the League. Engage him only if you have a clear advantage.

Max rank Wither is a very effective counter to Attack Damage characters, so try to avoid getting caught alone by it.

Nasus is prone to being kited. Try not to engage him at full Health.
