Nunu & Willump Rune Choices - League of Legends
Nunu & Willump Rune Choices

Core Items

Sunfire Aegis

3200 Gold

Dead Man's Plate

2900 Gold


Sunfire Aegis is great for passive damage during extended battles, as Nunu is likely to get into. It synergises well with needing to stay close to use Consume.

Dead Man's Plate aids with mobility, for faster ganks using Biggest Snowball Ever!

Other good items include Thornmail, Randuin's Omen, and Spirit Visage.

Starting Item & Boots

Refillable Potion

150 Gold

Jungle Item

350 Gold

Defensive Boots

1100 Gold

Skill Order

While your choices may differ according to how the game progresses, the typical Nunu & Willump skill priority is:

R > Q > E > W

Summoner Spells

These are the summoner spells most typically taken by Nunu & Willump in this role. Naturally, this may change depending on match-ups.

Nunu has great jungle clear and mobility, so your job will be to keep farmed up and gank as much as possible.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Consume, for easier jungle clear and sustain.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Biggest Snowball Ever! so you can start ganking lanes.
  • First Back - Take your defensive boots if you're struggling with sustain, or start to build towards your Sunfire Aegis with a Bami's Cinder.

Tips & Tricks

  • Call of the Freljord targets the closeest ally with the most attack speed.
  • Consume can be used on champions, and restores 50% more health if Nunu is below 50% health himself.
  • Biggest Snowball ever can be recast to let the snowball go, and it will travel in a straight line. Use this to zone.
  • Snowball Barrage inflicts very little damage, but it slows enemy champions hit. After three seconds, those champions are rooted.
  • Absolute Zero slows all targets in the area. Combine this with Snowball Barrage to keep enemies within the zone, for maximum CC.
