Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
First of all i have to say that this is my first build and im not 30 years old no lifer pro who plays 24/7 and know everything about LoL so pleas don't take this way to searious. As the second thing is that I don't have english as my main language so if u find wrongs in the text don't rage pleas. But now about Cho'gat, this build is mostly focusing on health, health regen and cc reduction(Crowd Control) and i won't promise u to get like 25/0 with this build, well 0 deaths is possible but this is not a killing machine it's a tank machine! No idea writing anymore here, excplain the rest in the chapters. PLEAS TRY IT OUT BEFORE U COME WITH DOWNVOTES AND NEGATIV COMMENTS! thank you.
Pros / Cons
-High spell damage
-Low attack damage
-Rupture is easy to avoid
Runes are actualy your own choise, i go for more tanky runes for early game but if u want to buy dps or whatever u like then go for it! But here are just a lineup u can try if u don't know what to build.
Greater Mark of Insight
More damage output!!
Greater Seal of Clarity
Alow you to spam your skills a little more early game
Greater Glyph of Warding
Some extra magic resist for easier laning
Greater Quintessence of Fortitude
Because of that u don't start with any HP item u might need this extra boost + with your Veteran's Scars you will get around 150 HP on level 1 WITHOUT ANY ITEMS !!!
I picked this one because of that i get boots so late with cho'gat but with this can i move from lane to lane easy anyway + to get to big minionhordes fast for good gold farming.
Wery good for Cho because now it will be wery easy to land a good and it is a good survival skill
If u shall replace some of the 2 others with this then choose because u don't need both (my opinion) but wery good tough. (take haste as mastery if u pick ghost)
Wery good if u are facing a high CC team to get that extra help to not get caught.
(pick willpower as mastery if u pick cleanse)
Good in early game to keep your mana up for spamming your or but late game u can get blue buff instead...
Spells to not get
You already got your passiv.
No idea because u already got slow and it is not a good survival skill
Leav it to the carrys...
The other ones i think u are smart enough to not take without explanation :)
Whenever Cho'Gath kills a unit, he recovers 40 - 82 (based on level) health and 8-16 mana.
One of my favorite passivs early game, with this passiv he can go whatever lane he want's to, i like him best at mid because with his he get almost every last hit so the mid enemy have to play WERY aggressive to take him down!
Ruptures the ground at target location. After a short delay, enemies are launched into the air for 1 second, dealt 80/135/190/245/305 (+1) magic damage, and have their movement speed slowed by 60% for 3 seconds.
Wery good for ganking an enemy if u can land it right on him because aire time is 1 sec and that 60% movementslow is as slow as it sounds like
Cost 90/90/90/90/90 Mana
Cho'Gath screams in a cone in front of him, silencing enemies for 2/2.25/2.5/2.75/3 second(s) and causing 75/125/175/225/275 (+0.7) magic
Wery good for starting a teamfight. COMBO
Cost 70/80/90/100/110 Mana
Toggle: Cho'gath's physical attacks launch spikes which deal 20/35/50/65/80 (+0.3) magic damage to a line in front of him.
Harcore farming skill!! With this on just lvl 1 u deal +20 more damage to the minion (or hero) u attack and everybody behind him. NICE!
Cost No Cost
Deals 300/475/650 (+0.7) true damage to target champion, or 1000 true damage to target minion (ignores resists).
If the target is killed by Feast, Cho'Gath grows, gaining 90/120/150 maximum health (maximum 6 stacks). Cho'Gath loses up to 3 stacks upon death.
What do you see in this? A killing spell? U know what i see? Health, Health Regen AND a killing spell cuz when you are up in 6 stacks (on lvl 3) u get +900 hp + the health regen bonus from . Kinda nice huh?
AP team build
Won't excplain way too much but just that i take instead of randuims omen for some extra magic resist and at last i get for some armor because u will leav on wery low armor if u pick another magic resist item.
AD team build
and to make the attackspeed champs hit like your grandma and at last for some extra AP so they have to focus you, you can switch out some of these 3 for if u want more armor.
I explain this part further down....
Pick these if u play vs alot of CC or alot of AP
+3 AD heros in other team? why take some other boots when u can get these and dodge everything?
If u want that extra speed boost!
Good if u want some extra magic pen. and more damage but might be good with some CC too...
The Balanced Build
Extra health regen and mana regen + to get extra gold earlygame
Took this item for that little health and ap boost earlygame but mostly for that extra magic pen. witch will get your damage way much higher
This is the key in my build. When u already get 900 Health from just your ult then why shouldn't you get with it's incredible passiv!
Extra HP mana and ap wery good boost for your skills so u get a real treath for your enemies
U will need this item for mostly that extra 80 armor it got because u don't get any other armor items if u don't switch out any other item the extra HP, Health regen and passiv is just a bonus
Extra HP and ap with RoA you will get up to 180 ap witch will be insane for tank Cho + that extra slow after using for example Feral Scream
AD yi and twitch feeded then get this item! +armor, mana, cdr(Cooldown reduction) AND the best part is reduces the attack speed of nearby enemies by 20% then count in passiv (20% chance on being hit to slow the attacker's movement and attack speeds by 35% for 3 seconds) that will be 55% attack speed slow!!!!
I usually don't get this item because i see is beter but if u rater take a cheaper way to armor then go for it.
Armor,magic resistans and that little angel, well a feeded carry won't have problems taking you down after respawn but sometimes it will be the difference between win or lose.
Good vs CC-AP champs because that extra clence will be wery usefull.
Early, later, latest
Start of with and a . When you are up around 750 gold recall and buy philosopher's stone and (if you have got a kill and got extra money buy or ) and back. Now are u able to both chase your enemies and use your skills more often because of the mana and health regen from your philosopher's stone. Next back will be when you got money to finish your hounting guise
Congratulations, you have survived to mid game. Now you should be finished with your and started on your start with catalyst the protector. When it is done you will be imba in like 10 min. Build and evolve it into for that extra magic resistans and health regen. Now the game might be leading to its end.
Get with as starter for it's slow, the active will turn many fights (if u remember to use it). As last item you should get an and make it to an for more slow, more health and more AP!
Congratz, you just won a game.
Pleas leav a comment about this section of what to improve
Blue and Red buff
This is a must for u if u play my core build. With this u can spam your skills how much u ever want and keep your team and yourself alive so try to hold this one up as much as you can!
Hmm.... some extra dmg and a slow...u got slow and with that slow attack speed u don't got any need for this buff.
So, this was now my first build ever. I hope you liked it and i will be glad if u vote it up. i will try to get up some more info like screenshots and other stuff. That's all i have to say i hope u had some great games with the new CHO'GAT.
Pleas leav comment if u have ideas about how i can improve this build.
