Introduction

My first guide :) so plz be gentle

This guide is designed to make the most out of Cho'Gaths Vorpal Spike power. With massive AS you should be shooting out tons of these , doing tons of dmg (roughly 200 before resistances). This combined with your passive should be able to keep you healed through almost any attacks. I have come out ontop 3v1 against Malphite, Nasus and Annie using this build with mostly basic attacks.
Excuse the lack of pictures, i dont know how to place yet, or do they come up automatically?

Pros / Cons

Pros
Amazing Farming
Can do decent damage to nearby champions without even having to attack them!!!
Regain health like a madman
Can have good cc from Crystal Sceptre's slow
Less mana hungry than normal Cho'gath


Cons
Slow basic attacks early game so less flying spikes
any others? Im open to suggestions

Items

Here i will explain the purpose of each item

Dorans Ring
always a good starting item for Cho'gath
nice hp and AP boost

Nashors Tooth
essential for this guide, it gives a collossal 50% attack speed and 55 AP!!
the cooldown reduction and MP5 is nice too
this should be the first item you get after the ring

Boots of Swiftness

Who doesnt need movement speed??

Ryals Crystal Sceptre
gives a nice healthy boost to hp and AP and also gives a 15% slow to all hit by your spikes
there is no reason not to include this item as it is great survivability and chasing

Will of Ancients
again, gives a nice bonus to AP. Not only that but it gives an aura for 25% spell vamp and, yes MORE AP!
This item will make you almost impossible to kill if u are surrounded by enough minions to kill with your spikes.

Rabbadon
Once you get this you will recieve a massive boost to your dmg

Other good items

Void staff
this will give you increased AP but also increased magic pen, giving more damage, but i prefer rabbadon.
If you are running low of gold however this is a great substitute

Banshee veil

This item gives a bit of bonus hp, mana and magic resist. It also blocks a harmful spell every 45 seconds! This will greatly increase your survivability against mages but you have feral scream for that useful silence so only if u are really in trouble, or laning against 2 AP nukers will this be neccessary

Ionic Spark
This item gives AS and hp but also sends out a cool electric blast every 4 attacks, this will help farming but unfortunatly is unaffected by will of ancients
Also bonus attack speed means more spikes!


If other people have item suggestions i will try them out and update the guide :)
