As a Nasus jungler, I can't decide what is more important.

Should I not use E for the weaker camps and try Q-last-hit even the small monsters or should I just Q-last-hit what I can (usually the biggest monster), but always use E and smite?

To clarify, I'm asking what solution is better in the long run in terms of making me generally stronger in team fights under normal circumstances.

    The way the question is worded right now may solicit mostly opinion-based answers, which we try to avoid on Arqade. Is there a way that you could reword it to make the "best" solution more quantifiable? (i.e. asking which is more efficient in terms of gold/XP gain, or whatever other metric you care about the most)

  • Okay I've edited my question a little. But I am asking this question this generally in case there is a strategically obvious answer even though the question may seem to be an opinion asking question. Commented Sep 24, 2013 at 20:14

Use Q to last-hit as much as possible, but not at the expense of speed (much, a second or two is probably ok). The faster you clear the jungle, the more experience you've earned, and the more gold, which leads to potency faster than Q-stacking alone.

Additionally, you'll be able to assist your allies more, possibly picking up Q-stacks from lane minions and enemy champions, as well as forcing/protecting turrets and dragons.

    I don't know if its worth noting, but as nasus jungle, early game you're gank usefulness comes from whither and spirit fire, siphon strike is just a bonus. Q farm is nice and all, but higher level(faster farm) is definitely more important
