Nasus will get a change to help him to be a good jungler with upcoming patch 8.24b, according to the latest PBE update.
After the change hit his Q, Nasus will receive 12, not six, stacks from large monsters, large minions, and champions. Now, in lane, that’s not actually too big of a jump. After all, you don’t run into that many large minions, so the likelihood of his top lane performance skyrocketing isn’t too high. What we might see a lot more of after this change, however, is Nasus in the jungle.
For those of you that don’t know, there is a large monster in every camp of the jungle. In total, there’s six. The Gromp, the Blue Sentinel, the Red Brambleback, the large Raptor, the large Wolf, and the large Krug all reside in the jungle within their respective camps. That means if Nasus kills all of the large monsters in a single jungle clear with his Q, he can rack up 72 stacks alone.
We know it’s not likely, but if he Qs every single small monster, too, that number jumps up above 100. With three full clears, assuming he can nab a Scuttle Crab and a champion here and there, Nasus is teamfight ready. And suddenly, jungle Nasus isn’t looking too shabby, is he? In fact, he wouldn’t just be considered viable, he’d be downright good.
This change should arrive with upcoming patch 8.24b this week.
