Nasus's start for jungling is rather predictable. He farms both buff camps and stays in the jungle until at least level 3. His ganks are rather weak until he hits his critical point of level 4, and from then on his ganks are amazing. It's usually a good idea to stay in your jungle until at least 3 minutes, and maybe even steal some experience/gold from your laners if they die or need to back. Remember to use your
to reset your autoattacks while you are jungling. If you are near the enemy jungler's camps and you see him attempt a gank, you have the option of counterjungling with near 100% safety. Leave if their laner starts to gravitate towards you, or try to kill them.
With the new jungle changes I think it is viable to go either Q or E. Anyway your regular jungling path is to smite blue, then wolves, then wraiths, then smite red, then golems, and you'll hit 4. If you feel like your red is in danger or the enemy jungler is a good dueler, then save smite and go directly to your red after you clear blue. This does not guarantee you getting red so make sure to be wary and give your top and mid a heads up.
!!!Be careful of invades by the enemy jungler if you are low hp!!!
- Keep track of your , AA damage, and damage. You want your stacked as much as you can.
- You can the small camps and almost immediately a lesser monster to get a stack. Your will be up again by the time you're about to kill the larger monster. Don't do this with because your will be up, and don't do it with a larger camp because you'll take a lot more damage early on. Late game when the jungle damage doesn't matter you can to your heart's content.
- If you are holding one of your teammate's lanes and the opponent stays in lane to try to get cs and harass you, you can attempt a gank when your teammate gets back to lane. Wither is very underestimated at level 1.
Ganking is covered in the chapter below
