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.
There is a place between dimensions, between worlds. To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To most, however, it is called the Void. ChoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½gath is a creature born of the Void, a thing whose true nature is so horrific most will not speak its name.
ChoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½gath the Terror of the Void
This guide is for people who like playing tank classes and may not be the most optimal way to play ChoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½gath. I play ChoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½gath fairly aggressive and I feel the build I tend to use really lends to his play style.
Rupture (Active): Ruptures the ground at target location, popping enemy units into the air, dealing damage and slowing them. This attack has a slight delay, so aiming and anticipation are required to use it best.
Feral Scream (Active): Cho'Gath unleashes a terrible scream at enemies in a cone, dealing Magic Damage and Silencing enemies for a few seconds. This is often combed with Rupture as a combo to get a vulnerable caster to low enough health to Feast upon them.
Feast (Active): Instantly kills low-health target Champions (marked). Instantly kills most weak minions and monsters. Every successful Feast increases Cho'Gath's Health by an amount and enables him to Feast upon higher-Health Champions. Maximum 6 growths. This skill is used to counter lower health champions, but also helps ChoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½gath tank for his team Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ leaving him alive on the battlefield is a big risk!
Vorpal Spikes (passive): Cho'gath passively deals damage to units behind his primary target. This is helpful as a farming ability, but can be used to harass as well.
Carnivore (Passive): Whenever Cho'Gath kills a unit, he recovers some health. This is very useful for allowing him to stay in combat.
As the name says with this build other players will look at you like a they would a raid boss.
When you start out put your point into Rupture and harass the other heroes, be careful about how often you use it though because Rupture takes up a lot of mana. You want to be careful about not getting killed early game or your build timing will be off. Just harass as often as you can keep them at 75% health as much as you can. Recall when you have enough to either buy giants belt or if you have enough to buy giants belt and ruby crystal.
You should by now have at least 3 feast stacks, Warmog's Armor and maybe boots of swiftness. Depending on how the other team is made up if they don't have a good hero that deals a lot of AP damage then you don't need Banshee's Veil just skip right to the GA and to replace Banshee's Veil later just buy another Warmogs. This is when the fun starts, you now have more health then anyone playing and you are definitely the biggest thing on the map and I don't care who's playing when you see a huge alien looking thing running at you, you get the hell out of there. Pay close attention to the other heroes' health your feast should be level 2 by now and able to do 550 true damage. Get them low enough hit them with a rupture and go in for your dinner.
By now you should have all the items listed above and should have all 6 stacks of feast and as the title suggests a freakin RAID BOSS! Remember you are the most unstoppable creature on the map and you need to act like it! So lead your team in all the charges and team fights straight to VICTORY!
