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.
Cho'gath is a very good champion in both early and late game, early game he is great at just lane sustain and harassment and beautifully setting up your teammates for ganking, and late game you are not only near to impossible to kill but you are also dealing damage and Crowd Control
These listed runes provide some early game AP to keep harassment up but also give you some beefiness throughout the game to any opponent.
The masteries up there ^ were chosen for reasons close to the runes, but the difference is the cool down reduction for faster harassment, Creep score, And of course gaining stacks for your ultimate tankiness. Also provides some mana Regen to fuel these mentioned things
This item build covers everything you need as a cho'gath. Armor and mana from the frozen heart guardians to preserve your precious stacks and adding more resist and armor. your abyssal scepter will help out your teams and your own AP while gaining resist to theirs and Rabadons and Rod of Ages will give you some damage along with your tanking.
As Cho'gath You are purely Crowd control and the exhaust will both allow you more cc for your team but also hitting your rupture more often. Flash is, well, flash. Can be used to escape over walls chase an enemy or whatever use you can find for it of course!
Pro's to this build
-Fast and lasting stacks
-Lots of Crowd Control like any good cho'gath
-Won't run out of mana
-All around amazing tank
Be Sure to Combo (Skill Sequence)
Be sure if you are playing cho'gath you are playing him right not just building. When you do engage lead with your Rupture leading your target and following directly with your Feral scream. Of course if you know you're going to secure the kill then always feast, and as always, be sure to focus the right people
This should cover the basics and all of the needs for a good and efficient Tank. Thanks for reading this and here are some added inserts below
First of all Creep Score is key for cho'gath. Cho'gath is ideal for both middle and top lane. I prefer top because of his lane sustain and all the available Creeps with minimal distractions. When laning Its dependent on your enemy, of course. Try and keep your opponent harassed with your combos until they are about half health knowing you can combo and ult to kill them. Of course be sure to be conservative with mana, and hp you will get from your passive. Follow these steps and you should have the lane to yourself.
Just play as the usual tank. No bad engages and no bad focus and missed skill shots. Other then that its good to lead with a Rupture in the midst of there team trying to get their carries so your team can take them down and intercept there skill shots, for example a blitz grab or an ahri taunt.
other builds are a little awkward in the way that they dont find that perfect in between of all skills needed by cho'gath and you can always change the order of the build seeing as though the opposing team is very AP heavy.! I hope this guide helps and GLHF!!!
