Nasus Matchups

Enemy Matchups

Good Against
Wukong Build | Wild Rift - zilliongamerWukongNasus should play passive against Wukong dont' try to trade kill with him in the early game try to stack up Siphoning strike first. When Wukong uses his Wukong abilities: Golden Staff | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Golden Staff, Nasus can counter him by using  Nasus abilities: Wither | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Wither and Nasus abilities: Spirit Fire | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Spirit Fire to force Wukong back.
Tryndamere Guide | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerTryndamereNasus should play safely in the early freeze the wave and last the minion to stack his Nasus abilities: Siphoning Strike | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Siphoning strike. Nasus should max his Nasus abilities: Wither | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Wither and save to slow Tryndamere attack speed when he use his Tryndamere abilities: Spinning Slash | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Spinning slash. So Tryndamere won't be able to trade kill Nasus.
Camille Build | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerCamilleNasus is good against Camille. When Camille wants to trade kill Nasus can use Nasus abilities: Wither | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Wither to reduce her attack speed. Moreover, Nasus should play passive farm under turret wait until he gets Lvl 5 and can take down Camille on the lane.
Fiora Guide | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerFioraFiora will be aggressive when she lane against Nasus. So Nasus can play safely try to farm under turret in the early to stack up your  Nasus abilities: Siphoning Strike | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Siphoning strike, Fiora has nothing to kill Nasus. Moreover, Nasus should wait until he got his ultimate get more stack and slowly win the lane against Fiora. 
Hard Counters
Garen Guide | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerGarenGaren Garen abilities: Judgment | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer Judgment and Garen abilities: Decisive Strike | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerDecisive Strike can be the advantage to kill Nasus in the early game because Nasus has low mobility.
Olaf Guide | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerOlafOlaf lane against Nasus at Baron Lane is not that hard. Olaf has more damage than Nasus in the early game and can use Olaf abilities: Undertow | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerUndertow to slow and kill Nasus.
Jax Guide | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerJaxJax is good to counter Nasus. Jax can use Jax abilities: Empower | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer empower to annoy Nasus when he tries to farm for his stack and Jax can also use Jax abilities: Counter Strike | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer counter strike to block Nasus's Nasus abilities: Siphoning Strike | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer siphoning strike in the fight. When Nasus use his ultimate Jax can also dodge him by using his Jax abilities: Leap Strike | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamer leap strike to run away so, Nasus ultimate will be useless.
Darius Guide | League of Legends Wild Rift - zilliongamerDariusDarius has more output damage than Nasus in the early game and mid-game.
