7. Get another Void Staff


Consume (Q): This spell does 500 damage to a creep at level 1 and heals your for 100 Hit points. Try to consume only when you're hit point is not topped off. It is more efficient to last hit creeps and save your mana for snowballs so you can keep up the harassment. When you go back to base to heal or get items make sure to run across a creep camp to grab a creep or two before blue pilling. Then as you run back to the lane, finish them off if you haven't already.

Blood Boil (W): This skill is very good for getting away and initiating on heros. This spell will most definitely save you and your teammates lives over and over. Also you want to keep this spell casted on your physical carry, because it will make a noticeable difference in their damage output.

Snowball (E): I call this spell the snowball of doom. You want to throw this in the face of the enemies champions constantly to keep them low so they play defensive in a lane. A very important thing to remember is to be selective when you choose who to throw it at. You want to throw it at champions without hit point regeneration and you want to focus 1 hero so that champion would stay passive and not double up and gank you.

Absolute Zero: More like absolute destruction. This spell is very good but getting it off is very tricky. This spell is the primary reason for getting a lot of survivability. It will be hard to get this spell off because as soon as the enemies sees you casting it in a team fight they will stun you. So my suggestion in a team fight is to run in snowball them hit a few times and wait for the malphite/sion/taric etc to cast it first (usually 3 seconds into a teamfight then cast your ult. This spell will be a lot easier to pull off once you get your banshee's veil. Also, something very important to note is that Nunu can detonate his ult at anytime while he is channeling his spell by simply moving. In doing so it will deal the percentage of damage it is suppose to relative to the channeling time. Say for example: the full channeling time is 3 seconds and is suppose to deal 900 damage. If he cancels at 1 second he will deal 300 damage and 600 damage at 2 seconds respectively.

How to play Nunu

Laning: You want to harass the other champion as much as possible with your snowball. The reason I got x2 Doran's Ring because It gives a lot of Health, a lot of mana regeneration (for snowball/consume) and AP to make your consume heal more. The best time to throw a snow ball at a champion is when you notice that one of your creep is about 1/5 hit points because you can safely assume that the other champion will run up to last hit it. Now they can expect to run up to eat a snow ball. Doing this will deter them from last hitting and will keep the low on hp which makes them easier to gank. If you are laning with a partner. and you are top lane as purple team, when ever your smite and consume is up both at the same time, run to the neutral camp to smite and consume them. This will give your lane a level advantage over the other team.

Ganking: Nunu's snowball and bloodboil makes not a very good ganker. He will allow fast initiate and continual slows on the person you are chasing down. Couple those two spells together, your opponent is as good as dead if they are running away alone.


  1. I think you mean " Nunu's snowball and bloodboil makes him a VERY good ganker"

  2. 2 void staff? why? the unique doesnt stuck... is not better a abyssal scepter maybe?

  3. look, i think that its stupid using "consume" i am building my nunu just with: 1st snowball than blood boil, than snow balls as mush as i can, if cant i use blood boil, ofc absoulute zero is prio on lvl 6...
    and i am using that sword that costs 4000g or soo... it helps a lot, while getting it i am getting other items that help me...

  4. dont trust a person that calls trinity force "that sword"

  5. I think its not trinity force... I think he ment "Infinity Edge" :P

  6. Why in the world would you get spatial accuracy when you run smite and exhaust, better to get a global passive mastery unless you will be running teleport

  7. but infinity edge for nunu o0 is just a waste :P

  8. first item for nunu .. ap book for 435 ... 1 mana bot ... hit always minions ... to get free skill without mp cost ... then u dont need that doranas rings for mp reg. once back shop .. u should get mejas and boots (350G) or elixir the blue one (300) ... this doran items are money wasting for nunu
