Why is it that SR players are so far behind DOM players when it comes to seeing builds and champion viabilities?
Jayce was op in DOM within 3 weeks of release and it took SR "pros" nearly 5 months to realise how bs his kit is? lawl
Viability =/= Optimal. Because of this, the meta in SR, Dom, TT and PG are all very different.
Nasus is naturally meant to be a damage sponge tank. Farm dat Q, kill everyone with it in late game. as Tanky AD nasus with Triforce, you exceed 4000 HP with ult up. With this build, I do not think you even exceed 3.3k HP with it up, unless you get RoA/Rylais.
However, if you decide to go mid and stack some early MR, you basically become a ***** to push out of lane thanks to your passive lifesteal, strong pushing power and anti-gank W.
