These Boots are bought if they have a lot of CC/AP. If they have a lot of AD you can get Ninja Tabi.

This is built as for it cheap price it gives a wide range of stats.

Well your going to end up getting an aegis so why not just upgrade it?

More HP? Sure HP is one of the most OP stats in S3 ATM.

More AP and Tankiness? Yes please!

We max Vorpal Spikes first as it will make your jungle speed faster and you will be doing more damage. Next we max Rupture making it do more damage. Finally we max Feral Scream this is maxed last as all that changes is the mana cost.

Team Work | Team Fights

In Team fight's your main role will be to tank the enemy whiles trying to peel the enemies of your ADC. You will try to get as many of the enemy team with you Rupture and Feral Scream hitting them may be the difference between your team winning or losing the fight.

Jungle Route | Explanation


This is a common jungle route that most people take.
The Video is from a jungler called stonewall008 his channel is: www.youtube.com/user/stonewall008

The Path I take is ancient golem > wolves > wraiths > elder lizard > golem

Summary | Special Thanks

Overall Cho'Gath is a viable choice in ranked play but is rarely picked due to stronger, faster junglers been available. He is extremely good at counter jungling post level 6 due to Feast. His ganks are strong if you can land Rupture also you can totally shut down some champions with Feral Scream which silences the enemy.

SPECIAL THANKS: Credits to jhoijhoi for the template, which you can find here.
