Nautilus Wild Rift Runes

“Aftershock” is the best main rune for Nautilus. Nautilus’s passive will bind enemies during combat and activate “Aftershock” to increase resistance and create an explosion that deals magic damage. Very useful every time Nautilus rushes into the middle of the enemy team and deals damage to many surrounding enemy champions.

“Courageous Giant” is a useful secondary rune to choose because it creates a shield that increases Nautilus’s resistance. If the enemy team has many magic champions using combos, the Giap Bone gem will reduce the damage you receive.

“Lan Spill” is a gem that helps you just stay next to AD so that AD can farm minions and you will be the one to receive the result of increased health.

In case you want Nautilus to have an additional slowing effect, you can choose the Frozen Upgrade rune. Choosing this gem will be very useful for Nautilus to roam and gank other lanes. When choosing this option, you will definitely have to choose the extra rune “Magic Flash” to create a mutation. Quickly approach the target.

Is Nautilus a support that often stands at the front in team fights. And as the person who must take responsibility for initiating combat, items for Resistance, Health and Armor are top priorities.

In addition, Nautilus’s skill set consumes a lot of mana, so it is necessary to build items that give more mana and skill recovery points so that Nautilus can create more pressure.

How to play Nautilus Wild Rift

Nautilus Wild Rift is quite strong in the early stages of the game, especially when you have all 3 skills, you can play hard at this stage.

Tip: Because when you drag both Wild Rift Nautilus and the enemy champion, they will be close to each other. Therefore, if you want the enemy champion to be closer to a certain position, move in that direction a little first and then pull. With a little attention, the enemy champion will have difficulty escaping.
