Introduction

So, Ive been playing Cho for a while and he was recently on the free rotation. I couldn't help but notice the fail all of the other Cho's were displaying. Im making this build to help those of us who would like to NOT suck at Cho.

This is also my first build :D


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

[Pros]
****loads of hp
almost unkillable
Feast
decent farmer
[Cons]
Sometimes focused early
Mana starve early game
If you dont get stacks early you might not get them
Vulnerable to slows (Ashe)

Masteries

I go for a 0/21/9 build so that i can give the full amount of support to my team as a tank and as a utility.
going into the dps tree really isn't necessary. ive expiramented extensively and have found that feast and cho's high damage abilities will provide you with an ample amount of kills :3


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

ok on to spells.
to me, Teleport and clairity are essential for cho.
Cleanse
this is for that team that has way too much cc and not enough damage. like low level ashe. you cant run from xin ashe and malphite at the same time. ohwait...
ghost
a good escape/chase for feast. some say flash is better for landing feast, i agree on a few aspects. but if you can land your pop up this is definetly the spell for you. plus, flash is getting removed. so dont get used to it ;D


Guide Top

Skills

ALright,
the thing about cho is that you have to use your skill rotation thoughtfully.
if theyre low, FEAST
for a caster, silence, popup, if theyre low, or if you KNOW theyre going to die...FEAST
for a melee, popup, silence, and if you know theyre going to die ....FEAST

IMPORTANT
YOU DO NOT GET FEAST STACKS UNLESS YOU KILL THEM WITH YOUR FEAST, THIS IS THE SAME WITH MINIONS AS WELL AS CHAMPIONS. USE YOUR FEAST WISELY


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

By the time your Rupture is level 3 you should be able to use this to easily farm minions. use the cone effect of Feral Scream to your advantage and try to hit all 6 minions.


Guide Top

Team Work

Alright, as tank, its your job to initiate teamfights/barron. You also have to support your team, your are the second most important player on the team besides the carry. if you follow this build and you play smart, you'll survive every teamfight even if they focus you. (this depends on if you solo engage or if its a legit teamfight) but you also need the support of your team to dps the people on you and kill them. this is the carry's job.


Guide Top

Items

i cant really give you much of a perspective on what to build as a tank. every match is different, so you need different items. this item build will just give you a decent idea on what to build on a fairly effective cho. its also the build i usually use

Summary

Well, thats it for now. it wasnt extensive but its a good start for the begginers :3 be sure to check out my other builds if i ever make any :DDD


HAVE FUN :DDDD and please comment and vote!!
