FOTM Report: AD Nunu Top

Leave a Comment

Today I'd like to introduce you to the most overpowered champion on the rift, a yeti with an insatiable appetite that devours everything in its path. AD Nunu was first developed earlier this week by the same people that brought Tank Akali Top to life, the Korean solo queue ladder.

Catching on like wildfire, he's quickly becoming a 100% pick/ban champion in high level Korean solo queue, hard countering popular picks like Darius and Nautilus.

Introduction

Today I'd like to introduce you to the most overpowered champion on the rift, a yeti with an insatiable appetite that devours everything in its path. AD Nunu was first developed earlier this week by the same people that brought Tank Akali Top to life, the Korean ranked ladder.

Catching on like wildfire, he's quickly becoming a 100% pick/ban champion in high level Korean solo queue, hard countering popular picks like Darius and Nautilus.


How to Play
RunesAttack Damage Quints, Attack Damage Reds, Flat Armor Yellows, Flat Magic Resist Blues
Masteries: 18-12-0, Warlord's Bloodlust Masteries
Abilities: E, W, W, Q then prioritize R > W > E > Q
Core Items: Boots of Swiftness, Infinity Edge, Statikk Shiv, Bloodthirster, Last Whisper, Sterak's Gage



Why It Works

Massive Attack Speed Boost
Clocking in at a massive 45% attack speed boost, AD Nunu passively gains the equivalent of a Phantom Dancer's worth of attack speed for not only himself, but also his marksman as well.

Insane Movespeed Boost
The same Bloodboil outputs 12% boost to movement speed, which is more than Phantom Dancer and Statikk Shiv COMBINED. Again, he also provides this to not only himself, but another champion of his choosing as well.

Powerful Mind Games
Without AP on Nunu, his ult does not do much damage. As a result, enemy players will try and walk through it to reach the squishy glass cannon. However, little do they know that this is actually the plan all along, and Nunu can quickly one shot enemy champions if they get too close via his auto attacks, which require ZERO mana to use!

Potential Pitfalls

Korean Level Strategies
As a champion that's very straight-forward, playing him correctly requires strong game knowledge and Korean level mind-game abilities in order to outplay new champions with super loaded kits. However, with this insanely overpowered build, it's not far-fetched to do it consistently.

Too Strong
With a champion this this strong, it's very easy to start getting banned out in every game. Once they see you one-shotting champions left and right, it's soon becomes almost impossible to get the chance to play him.

Nerf Bait
Again, even if you do get to play this champion once in a while, Riot will soon catch on after you beat up one too many noobs. As a result, the LP market is open for a limited time, so make sure you crush through as much LP gaining, Nunu-smashing as you can before he gets nerfed.

Conclusions

AD Nunu Top is an insanely powerful champion with capabilities beyond anything we've ever imagined. His old and lackluster kit left him off the radar for an extremely long time, but with this new build, he's made a stronger comeback than we ever believed possible.

Suggested Rating: God Tier++
