Introduction

I made this guide because I have experienced that many only thinks Cho' Gath is a tanky mage. But I like him even more as a Tanky AD. If Cho' Gath is full Feasted he got 4k HP and his damage 250.

Build
- Dorans Ring: Because of the start health and the mana regen.
- Warmogs Armor: Because it is the most awesome item in LoL. All that life it's just great.
- Wit's End: The Attack speed and magic resist is good and of course the passive!
- Atma's Impala: Gives some good armor but why i take it is because of the passive.
- Frozen Heart: The Armor and the passive is awesome!
- Force Of Nature: The Magic Resist is great and who says no to some Healt regen.

Runes

Solution 1: Damage/Attack speed Runes - Alot of damage, it will help you in the start.

Solution 2: Tank Runes - Of course tank runes is good for a tank.

Solution 3: Damage/Attack speed Runes & Tank Runes - I prefer this because it will be awesome in the start and help you to a better farm.

Summoner Spells

Flash
The popular summoner spell Flash. It is great to escape with. Especially if you master the "Flash over walls" Technique. Flash is also great if you are chasing someone there is low HP and ready to die.

Exhaust
Good for an extreme escape and it is also great to get an easy kill.

Ghost
Ghost is good. But i prefer Flash anytime!

Teleport
Teleport is great for a solo top. It allows you to recall, buy and then get to the lane fast again without losing to much XP and make sure your opponent dont take out your tower.

Ignite
Naahh. I dont think this is the best spell for a tank AD champ. Ignite is mostly suitable Mages.

Smite
If you want to jungle with Cho' Gath, yes then you definitly should take Smite.

Team Work

Remember you are tank not an AD champ. Yes you damage alot but that not makes you an AD Carry. You have some hell of Armor. So remember, Tank.

Farming

Cho' Gath is an insane farmer. All his spells is great for farming. Cho' Gath is one of the best champs in League of Legends to get away from a gank because of his spell Rupture. But just because you are Cho' Gath don't mean you are immortal to ganks. So keep an eye on the chat for an miss.

Unique Skills

This build do I think is better than much other because Cho' Gath has tendency to die and feed to much as a mage. Mage is great but i think tanky AD is better. It makes you last much longer and almost never die. Cho' Gath also gets many easy kills with this build.
