[S14 TOP 1 GUIDE] AP & TANK Cho'Gath THE TERROR OF LEAGUE

By oboy4life
About Me
Hey, Hope you enjoyed my guide, I'm an old league player who played since season 3. I always enjoyed Cho'Gath and particularly AP Cho'Gath, but with new items and runes tank Cho'Gath also became good top while AP is nice mid. I see my guide as the best out there as I have my own take on the items, I'm currently the only new updated guide with rod of ages as I like to have something unique but still good in my guides. My guide comes up as the top 1 search on this site, kinda speaks for itself being the best one #1
Items
Cho'Gath has gotten a big upswing after the new items, like Stormsurge it is the best burst item in the game. It sadly has gotten nerfed couple of times, but the item is still strong. This item is very good for the AP Cho'Gath side, the other item that is new and I use in this build is Cryptbloom which is an AOE heal for both yourself and your team when you get a takedown. The other items on the standard build are old items, Rabadon's Deathcap and Warmog's Armor, We all know what Deathcap does but simply it gives 140 AP and increase your AP by 35% and Warmog is for armor but mostly as addition way to getting more health and having restore health and movement speed.

An old build was with Rod of Ages, I still have a build option for that because I think the stacking works well with Cho'Gath. Ideal to buy it first item because you reach full stacks earlier, but in my own build I have it as second item but that build is experimental only
