Summoner Spells

Best options


Flash , Flash is the best summoner spell in game, allows you to escape, and to use it to finnish someone off with your Feast Teleport, by far the best choice if you are solo top Smite only if you are jungle

Ability Explanation + Ability Sequence

  • Carnivore (passive) Whenever Cho'Gath kills a unit, he recovers 32 - 66 (+2.0 each level) health and 3.25-7.50 mana (+0.25 each level).
  • Rupture 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 (+100% of ability power) magic damage, and have their movement speed slowed by 60% for 3 seconds.
  • Feral Scream 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 (+70% of ability power) magic damage.
  • Vorpal Spikes Toggle: Cho'gath's physical attacks launch spikes which deal 20 / 35 / 50 / 65 / 80 (+30% of ability power) magic damage to a line in front of him.
  • Feast Devours an enemy unit, dealing 300 / 475 / 650 (+0.7 per ability power) true damage (1,000 to minions) that ignores armor and magic resist. If the target is killed, Cho'Gath grows, gaining extra health (max 6 stacks). Cho'Gath loses half his stacks (rounded up) upon death.

    Tips

    remeber, Rupture is the most important spell on Cho'Gath learn to hit it every time!
    remember to always have 6 stacks of Feast (feasting minions)
    remeber to toogle off Vorpal Spikes while attacking turret's

Jungle

For masteries i take the same, and for runes a little AP wont hurt :P
here is the jungle route

  • wraits
  • wolfes
  • Golems
  • (BACK)
  • Gank or blue, or red


    I use pretty much the same build.


Guide Top

Laning Phase

Farm Farm Farm Farm Farm Farm Farm !
if you think it is worth it harras with auto attack, use Rupture and Feral Scream on the minions.
lvl 6 you should get 6 stacks as quickly as possible


Guide Top

Starting Items

if your solo top you should buy regrowth pendent and one healt potion, if your duo laning, you should buy a dorang's ring



FIRST TRIP HOME
you should have enough money to buy philopher's stone and Heart of Gold if not, buy boots instead.


Guide Top

Core Iteams

BOOTS


Guide Top

Gold per 5

Buying philopherser's stone and Heart of Gold gives you 10 gold per 5 wich is pretty op.


Guide Top

Items and why

Tanks should not have a core build, they should always build on what the enemy team is.


Against a balanced team


Guide Top

TRINITY CHO'GATH

you have to try this if you are getting fed at begining :D
