If you've read the patch notes for League of Legends patch 12.18, you can see Nasus getting a buff in the highlights. But no details on said buffs, nor are they present in the game.

League of Legends patch changes must first be tested on the Public Beta Environment servers, before going live. So, due to that, we have the option of knowing which champs Riot Games are buffing and nerfing, before the patch goes live.

One of the champion buffs we picked up on, aside from the expected Udyr changes , is Nasus getting buffed after an entire season of not getting any attention.

But, while the highlight of the League of Legends patch 12.18 patch notes had Nasus listed as one of the champions receiving a buff, the actual patch notes did not.

The answer was given to us by Rio Ruru:

"Hey everyone, the Nasus changes ended up getting removed during the PBE cycle. I'm working on getting the preview updated to reflect this as well!"

The buffs in question seem to be reverted after Rio realized just how unhealthy Nasus' gameplay would become. After all, Nasus was supposed to have his ultimate cooldown shortened by a lot.

And, more importantly, his W buffs were going to move Nasus away from a stacking top lane divinity, to a W abusing doggie. the buffs to his W were so immense that already some builds for his support role were being discussed.

Luckily, Riot saw reason and have not implemented these changes in patch 12.18, and hopefully never will.
