Cho'Gath is a naturally tanky jungler. he has two AoE CCs
As a jungler, he has 3 notable strengths.
    First, he is naturally tanky as a result of his ultimate. Which allows him to function quite well with low gold
    Second, he has two AoE CCs, a knock-up and a silence. These CCs give him strong ganks. even-though Cho'Gath's ganks rely heavily on his laner's CC if he dose not land his rupture
    Third, he has very high sustain and very high burst, making him a very strong, consistent control jungler

Attack Speed is standard on most junglers, but on Cho, it's especially strong on account of Vorpal Spikes.

Always Armor. You want it to be extra tanky and not die.

great for an early game damage boost in combination with the quints, it also helps with your early game jungle clear.

Ruptures the ground at target location. After a delay of 0.5 seconds, enemies are launched into the air for 1 second, dealt 80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 305 (+100% of ability power) magic damage, and have their movement speed slowed by 60% for 1.5 seconds.

After .5 seconds, Cho'Gath screams in a cone in front of him, silencing enemies for 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 / 2.25 / 2.5 seconds and causing 75 / 125 / 175 / 225 / 275 (+70% of ability power) magic damage.

Cho'gath's physical attacks launch spikes which deal 20 / 35 / 50 / 65 / 80 (+30% of ability power) magic damage in a line in front of him. The width of these spikes increases the larger Cho'gath is.

After .5 seconds, Cho'Gath devours an enemy unit, dealing 300 / 475 / 650 (+0.7 per ability power) true damage (1,000 to minions) that ignores armor and magic resist. If the target is killed, Cho'Gath grows, gaining 90 / 120 / 150 extra health (max 6 stacks). If the target was a minion or a monster, half the cooldown and mana cost are refunded. Each stack of Feast gives Cho'Gath 8.3 attack range, up to 50 bonus range. Cho'Gath loses half his stacks (rounded up) upon death.

Whenever Cho'Gath kills a unit, he recovers 20 - 71 (+2.83 each level) health and 3.5 - 7.75 mana (+0.25 each level).
