Threat Champion Notes

Amumu Since mummyface has no early game invading risk he allows you to farm up and get ahead really quick.
1
Fiddlesticks You basically counter Thug Life Scarecrow in every single way. Just watch for the fast dragon attempt from him.

Introduction

Welcome to the most fun you'll ever have playing Cho'Gath! Let me know what you think of it!


Guide Top

Runes

These runes allow for Cho'Gath to clear his whole jungle off the start. The bonus armor and health also allows him to have a chance with early trades if he gets invaded and the movement speed allows him to rush items before boots.


Guide Top

Masteries

The main focus of this build is the Oppressor Mastery (Deal 2.5% increased damage to targets with impaired movements) Since literally anything and everything you will end up doing with this build slows your target it allows for insane dps.


Guide Top

Summary

The whole point of this build is to make sure nobody gets away from you. The quick burst you give will scare most people into disengaging you. But how can they run if they are slowed 24/7. Stick to your target! NOMNOMNOMNOM

Pros / Cons

PROS

    Insane DPS and CC.
    Enemies cannot escape if you get a basic attack off

CONS
    Squishy early game which allows for invades
    Not much sustain in fights, just lots of damage


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

The jungle route is rather simple and basic.

Blue side start
Krug > Blue > Red > Gank/Back

Early game you always want to be on the lookout for a rather simple gank, once this build starts snowballing, it gets out of control really fast. BUT it is a struggle from behind since its damage based.

Red side start
Golems > Red > Blue > Gank/Back

Do your best to save your ward for when you do the second buff. This build is rather prone to being counter jungled early, so ward up, and play it safe.


Guide Top

Team Work

Cho'Gath is a very versatile champion, probably one of the most versatile champions in my opinion. He has an AOE Knock-up/Slow, an AOE Silence, and a massive true damage ult. With this build though your one and only goal is to eliminate the opposing adc/jungler/mid. The most effective way for that is to let somebody else on your team engage. (of course don't skip the opportunity for a good 3-5 man Rupture) If somebody else engages you can walk in with your silence, which will also slow all targets hit due to Rylai's, then focus your rupture on who you need to kill first. If you successfully hit that target you can walk up to them, basic attack them usually about once or twice and ult them. RIP

So in team fights your skill order should normally be W > Q > Basic Attacks > R

Unique Skills

There is only one focus point on Cho'Gaths skills I wanted to point out, his ultimate. Each time Cho'Gath kills an enemy with he gets a stack of his Feast, giving him bonus Health capping out at 6 stacks. Also if he kills an enemy with Feast he is refunded half the mana and cooldown! OP OP

Every time you die though you lose half your stacks. I highly recommend getting your stacks back ASAP, that bonus health is a major factor to this build considering how squishy the start is

THE END

I hope you enjoyed this guide, I have had MAJOR success even while falling behind with this build. It steam rolls insanely fast and since the enemies cannot really escape from you you just continue to get more and more fed Let me know what you think! :) Thank you for taking the time to read this guide!
