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.
Hi, this is my first Guide to League of Legends. I have been playing for about four months now and I have become if not pro, at least pretty good at this game.
Cho gath was one of the first champons I played and to my delight i found out that he was pretty good. I prefer to use him like a Tank/Dps since Rupture followed by Psychic Scream is a very good way to harass or get easy gold from creep waves in late game. He is highly adaptable and can be used either as a hardcore damager or a hardcore tank, but I try to get the most out of his talents and thats why I prefer doing a hybrid. If you should find youself in a situasion where you face a Ryze or a smilar champion with high damage and low life you can easely finish him of with either Rupture- followed up by -Psychic Scream coupled with Feast is the bane of most dps characters.
- Rupture is also a very good escaping skill or anti escape skill. It also stack 1/1 in Ap so it will be the first skill to choose and get fully upgraded.
- Psychic Scream is also a good dps skill along with the silence its a very good damage spell, altough not as good stack with Ap as Rupture.( Think the stack is 0,75/1).
Vorpal Spikes- its a decent extra damage spells and stacks somewhat with Ap. If your plan is to farm creeps its a good idea to buy a level or two of it and delay rupture and psychic scream a level.
Feast- This is the skill that lifts this champion from good to great. It pierces all armor and magic resistance and on lvl 3 its a massive damage and probably one of the most feared spells in the game( or should be at least). I like to couple it with the Summoner ability Exhaust. First I throw exhaust on the enemy then I can aim with Rupture and then I jump him/her with Psychic Scream and feast. This is a highly potent combo and along with the health gain is simply great.
My summoner spells is Ghost and Exhaust since I like the movement boost granted from Ghost and to be able to catch up with faster Champions. When I reach them feast em or rupture em ( only rupture if your timing is good).
Exhaust I use mostly for the brilliant slow and its ability to catch up with faster champs.
My masteries is quite simple as much defense that I could get along with some magic penetration. There might be a video guide coming up on youtube later this year.
My runes where pretty mch to enchance Cho gath at his top level and then start owning late game. Of course the more you get fed, the faster you get more kills so if ur rubbish with this champion you should really practice more, since cho ath is not very hard to play.
When it comes to items just start with a Ruby Crystal build Catalyst and get Rod of Ages as fast as possible. after that you are pretty much good to go. But after my recomandation the this should be priority.
1- Rod of Ages
3- Rylais Sceptre
4- Randuins Omen
5- Zhonyas Ring
Lastly excuse my poor english since english is not my mother language and I really hope you would have some use of this Guide/Build.
