Intro





Hey guys, I'm Turtle. I've been masters for 2 seasons in a row now while playing at 300 ping on NA servers (due to being in India for the time being). I have also been a

Nautilus
main for a year or two and have a very good understanding of his potential. I've been able to climb to masters consistently now due to having better macro knowledge and match ups understanding. I have also been rank 9
Nautilus
during season 11 in NA and have finally decided to make a guide to help others climb the ladder as well with this very easy to play champion because of his simple kit. He is one engage support everyone should know how to play.

I hope you find this helpful and if you have any more questions, feel free to ask in comments or come watch me stream and ask there and I will try my best to answer all questions.

I try to stream daily, and it always is content as I am climbing the ranks while being on 300 ping!

Laning Phase

At the start of the game, make sure to know if your team has enough damage to be able to invade the enemy jungle, but also make sure to check that the enemies don't have a better level 1 comp. Good invades can lead to strong starts which can help you snowball and close out your games faster. YOU DO NOT NEED TO INVADE EVERY GAME



Laning Phase



Nautilus
has a very strong level 2 power spike which almost always guarantees a kill or a lot of summoner spells will be used. Try to prioritize getting the push in lane first to reach level 2 before the enemy bot which can get you a very strong lane prio. Remember to not force level 2 too fast otherwise the wave will be too close to their tower and they are allowed to play safely.

Sometimes the lane phase is not the best so you will have to play it a bit more passive and wait till the enemy makes a mistake. Once any mistake is noticed, then you want to punish it and take over that lane.

You can also try to look for good picks at level 1 due to the cc lock up you have just with your passive and hook combined, but ideally level 2 is where you try to get the picks.



Nautilus
has a lot of lane presence because of his pick potential so make sure you are always a threat in lane and not being passive in situations when you shouldn't be. Play to get leads, you want to be aggressive. If you can't get the lead in the lane much, then look to roam.



Roaming

This champion was made to be able to roam and help teammates easily due to the kit being so good. You have options to help teammates get kills in other lanes, or help them away from danger, while also helping the jungler secure obejectives.

When to roam?

1. When you have just recalled and have time to help other lanes before going back bot

  1. 2. When the wave is pushed under tower or it is frozen near your tower
  2. 3. If going bot lane will not help you win 2v2, then you want to help others get a lead
  3. 4. Helping the jungler secure objectives or invade
  4. 



Teamfights



Nautilus
is always looking to engage due to being pretty one dimensional. You want to be using your ultimate on the most fed enemy in most cases so they are not able to carry their team. Having good vision will help lead you to getting the picks you need to win the fights.

The main concept for

Nautilus
is knowing who the main threat is so you can use your ultimate on them, and also looking for picks on anyone because of the massive amount of cc that you have in your kit.

Tips and Tricks

- AA > W(AA) > E > AA

In this combo you use the AA reset from your W and the fact that your E can clip the animation of your W attacks when they land. This combo lets you burst a bit faster than AA > E > AA > W and you spend less time stuck in animation. This combo can be used after Q and after R.

- Use Q to get behind your Enemy

Especially useful vs Alistar and other supports with knockbacks since they will most likely knock you into their team.

- Every ability can be used during your Q dash

This way you can get a better position for your R to knock up multiple enemies if they are not in the best position to just use R.

- You can hook terrains to close distance faster

- Try to use your ultimate in clumped fights because it will knock up/cc multiple enemies.

- In the laning phase, save your ultimate to shut down any gank attempt. Anyone who attempts to gank you or your ADC can be shut down (and often-times killed) by using R-Q-AA while your ADC focuses on them.
