Introduction

Cho' Gath APPS is a very nice build for those who is tired of tanking. But, BE CAREFULL! If you don't use it well you'll lose everything.

What's APPS?

APPS is Ability Power per Second, and you ask me, WTF is this? Vorpal Spikes is an AP skill, so it's like a normal hit but instead of Damage it's AP. So it's APPS. :D


Guide Top

Why APPS?

I chosed APPS because Vorpal Spikes deals your Damage + 20% your AP + 60 Magic Damage(At lv5), and it hits all enemies in your front. Vorpal Spikes is also affected by Life Steal, because it attacks all enemies in a row. So it's perfect! Now, imagine all of that plus attack speed. You'll be a freaking powerfull!

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-Good Damager
-Good Farmer
-Good Slower/Silencer
-Restores HP very fast

Cons:
-Low Armor and Magic Resistance
-Very Slow
-Hard to kill ranged and fast champions

Items

Early Game:
I start with a and a , but some people preffer to use . After getting some money, get your to move faster. To restore HP, buy for Life Steal and for more attack speed.

Mid Game:
Now you need to complete your and to get more Life Steal and attack speed. Life Steal for Cho' Gath is very good, because his passive restores HP when he kills a minion, so your HP will restore faster then ever. Buy your to gain armor and a lot of AP. If the enemies have a lot of Magic Damage, you can exchange for .

Late Game:
Now your Vorpal Spikes must be hitting a lot. Now it's time for a . It's a great item, because it gives you more AP, HP and can slow enemies. Now you must be a lot powerfull. To finish the game, buy a not just for attack speed, but also for it's Passive and Active. You can also exchange for if the enemies have a LOT of Magic Damage and Mana users. Now that you have the complete build, go rock some Irelias out!

Summoner Spells

My choises are to help on kills and for running away or chasing, because Cho' Gath is a very slow champion.

Another choises for Cho' Gath are:
- for getting faster to places.
- for running away/ganking.
- for ganking.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

ALWAYS use , it's your principal skill.
Use to slow when chasing down the enemies, to run away and ganking.
Use to silence champions, principally mages.
Use to finish the enemy, this skill can do a LOT of damage.

I usually combo the skills in 3 different ways:

1st

- + + + + +

2nd

+ + + +

3rd

+ + + + Repeat...

Those are just options, you can create your own combo too ^^

Conclusion

This build is REALLY weird, I know, but it's very nice when you play with it. Just give it a try before commenting :D

Note: I hate Irelia! And yeah, I'm talking about you Kitutes --'

Notes V.2
