Chad'Gath Guide

Dunk Scrubs and get snatch with my highly renowned challenger GATH build

Build ap, get kills, no glacial required because your **** hot.
carry games with you superior skill and rank up out of bronze.


You will see many scrublords here claiming that comet or aery, even glacial (yikes!) is good on chad'gath. the truth is that these people are meta scrubs and lack the ability to make their wives come let alone dunk scrubs in league. However I have tirelessly worked with the population of the trap house and have come to the conclusion that Crack Harvest is the only choice in runes. It gives you a massive ammount of burst (Q+W) and you can 1 - 2 shot ANY squishy after double pen and some ap. this allows you to carry almost any game premitting your team is devoid of scrubnoob or hashinshin.


Since the pre season is here we have new items, some are good but must are net neutral for cho. The removal of obliv orb has hurt him as he has doesnt have that cheap flat pen. however ludens gives 10 flat and 5 per legendary. This means he will have the same/or more flat pen than ever before.
building rocketbelt to get sudden impact proc is just not as good right now but it is far from bad. You really want to be going ludens most games and follow it up with a horizon focus or zhonyas. because zhonyas is now 2500 (from 2900) however it gives 10 less ap (which is nothing).

Starting off with triple dorans is gone as they don't stack anymore. So I would advise to rush sorcs or lost chapter the finish ludens, you can buy a dark seal as its cheap adn gives good stats. flat pen is very valuable on the gath as you have good base damage on all your q and e. After ludens you can buy a stopwatch to preserve shutdowns or go into a horizon focus or cosmic. after that you can really build what you want.


Cho is not always a good idea to pick but he has some of the best cc and burst in mid. He can be destroyed by marksmen and long range control mages, but he has very favourable matchups with low-medium range squishies. You never really want to blind cho but he is a good flex pick (top and supp) so he is not always correctly counterpicked.

Good dunking, my fellow chads
