Explanations



Runes, Masteries, and spells



Exhaust/Ghost- Cho is not the fastest char in the league of legends. He is by far one of the slowest. That is why i use exhaust and ghost for my masteries. i normally use exhaust on enemy champions who try to escape and i use ghost to run away myself.I use exhaust on enemy champs because i have the mastery point in cripple which drops there defense as well as slowing them.

Masteries- I have 22 points in defense and 8 in offense. Some people will probably question why i have 4 points in evasion and 1 in nimbleness. Well although its only a 2% chance think of it as 2% of damage not hitting you and not only that but you get increased movement speed. and that never hurts. Something else people might question is the 4 points in sorcery. Well this is a tank build and one reason cho is such a good tank is Feast. Feast stacks up to 6 times and he can gain 90/120/150health per stack and only loses 3 upon his death. But Feast's draw back is its ridiculous cool-down and thats why i have 4 points in sorcery.

Runes- I get 3 quints of fortitude for an early game boost but all the other runes are of vitality for higher late game health.

Items



Ruby crystal- Pretty simple here start off buying a ruby crystal for the extra health early on not much you can say about that.

Mercury Treads- I get mercury treads because it reduces the effects of stuns, fears, snares, and others by 35%. This is a useful effect early on when your health hasn't had time to go up from feast and leviathan.

Leviathan- This item has to be one of the best tank items in the game. It gives 180 health and 32 health per stack. You get 2 stacks a kill and 1 stack for an assist max being 20 stacks. NOT only this but at 20 stacks you take 15% less damage. i great item and its perfect for Cho.

Warmongs Armor- Great item its gives a lot to benefit from for cho gath. ( 1220 Health, 92.5 Health Per 5 Sec. Passive: Permanently gain 3.6 Health and .5 Health Regen per 5 sec per minion kill. Champion kills grant 36 Health and 5 Health Regen per 5 sec. Bonuses cap at +450 Health, and +62.5 Health Regen per 5.) Now when you get this item i suggest you go out and kill LOTS of minions. just start taking the little b*st*r*s down.

Thornmail- You get thornmail because it gives you armor. 100 armor to be exact. It also returns 30% of basic damage taken back as magic damage. Its extremely use considering you dont have any DMG items yet.

Atmas Impaler- You have to love Atmas Impaler. Enemy champs will tremble at Cho's feat when you get it. It gives Cho 45 armor and turns 2% of his health into dmg. Now some of you wont think 2% is a lot but look at it this way. 2% of 3000 is 60. thats 60 extra dmg for you.(and you'll have more than 3000 health)

Gaurdian Angel- This is more along the lines of an extreme safety net if your team happens to be getting pushed. Guardian angel gives 68 armor, 38 magic resistance and revives you with 750hp once every 5 mins (if you die)
