Jungle Cho'Gath (Season 9)

About me and this guide
Be sure to read NOTES where you see them!

More info and updates to come soon. I need to add synergies and write more about threats.

I've been playing the game on and off since 2009, Starting in NA, then EUNE and finally EUW. I'm a jungle/support main with a big champion pool (80+).
Build playstyle
Farming minions and monsters early on will quickly turn Cho'Gath into a heavy tank that can push team objectives. This is what you should aim for.

You should be trying to farm as much as possible while still doing a good amount of ganks. Do counter-jungling when it's safe and clear waves after gank or check when it's appropriate. Cho'gath is a good pusher with his aoE abilities and Demolition rune. He can 1v1 many enemy junglers midgame.

Another aim for this playstyle is to get high health so you can stay in a fight and do more damage with your ultimate.
Start blue if you can as it will make your clear faster overall. Start raptor camp by using Q so the enemies come near you (for your E) and you can attack the big one to take it down faster.

Standard clear is Blue -> Wolves -> Raptors -> Red -> Krugs -> Gank -> Recall -> Gromp

Be careful against fighters early on and keep trying to gank or counter-jungle until enough camps are available in your jungle again.
Try to walk close to the enemy laner and then toggle your E to slow them first, then silence them and use Q while they are still slowed. finish off with E autoattacks and ultimate should you have it.

Silence should be used or saved if it looks like the enemy could try to attack your laner.

Try to gank all lanes and change your pathing every now and then. Consider pinging if you are around the river area so your team knows; they might take a while to respond otherwise.
You should be trying to initiate teamfights by catching enemies offguard, usually from a frontline position.

Aside from the usual, one trick is to fake an autoattack on a minion and use max range Q just as enemy is looking at you, instead walking to them right as they walk into the Q.

In a teamfight, you should save silence for any major damage dealers or crowd control champions such as Amumu, Malphite, Kennen, Katarina etc.

The second most important targets to silence after that are any enemies looking to go all in on your team - usually assassins such as Zed.

In a teamfight, you should be in the center of a fight, slowing a carry or tank, silencing heavy damage dealers and knocking up assassins while keeping rest of the enemy behind their frontline. You could also be quickly bursting down something like an assassin or even a tank to quickly turn it into a 4v5.
