Introduction

This guide is currently being built. It's my first guide so please be patient.

I decided to make this guide for my own reference and also because there aren't enough good Cho'Gath guides. This build focuses more on consistent damage and off-tankyness throughout the match as well as keeping a strong jungling clear time and strong ganks.

P.S. I do plan on making this a complete guide, I'm just looking for feedback currently.

Jungling

Jungle Route


Start at wolves and ask for a bit of aid to finish them quickly and head to blue. Make sure you are in position for your vorpal spikes to hit all targets, get a bit of help on blue and use smite on the golem.

Depending on how much help you have, you should have anywhere from half to full hp after using 1 to 2 health potions. Head to wraiths, start with rupture and clear them quickly and you should now have nearly full hp.

Head to the small golems and chain ruptures to finish them off. Head to red buff, clear it with smite and head off to gank a lane. If nothing is available, keep jungling by going to wolves, wraiths and small golems again and back to base to buy.
