[Season 13] Sakuritou Challenger Rank 1 Cho World Guide

By Sakuritou
Hello and welcome to my Cho'Gath guide c:

My name is "Sakuritou" and i was and still am the Nr.1 Cho'Gath in the World in Season 12/13.
I stream on Twitch where my main focus is to entertain my viewers while simultaniously maintaining high elo on the EUW ladder! (
Recently (Feb. 2022) i got quite a bit of popularity for my "Saku Build". Especially on the Cho'Gath Mains Subreddit, where i am trying to teach more players the "way of the Gath"

What is the Saku Build exactly and why is it good?: The Saku Build eliminates a lot of weaknesses of Cho'Gath, expecially when it comes to early game. It maximizes the amount of Gold used in Cho'Gaths Kit and gives him better powerspikes.

The "Saku Build" focuses on Hail of Blades and AP Tank Efficienty, bringing light to this very old but very awesome Champion!

I have gotten to Challenger with this Build and was also holding Rank 1 Cho'Gath World for quite some time c:

Important Tips and Tricks
Here i will give you advices for each Cho'Gath Ability

[Q] Rupture:
Predict the enemy movement to increase Q Hit-Rate.
Combo your Q with CC-Abilities from your own Team (For Example: Leona Q)
If the enemy has a lot of mobilty (For Example: Irelia Q), try using ur W before your Q, so she gets silenced and can't Q out of your Q

[W]Feral Scream:
Don't waste this Ability! Use it whenever you need to shutdown an important target. It works best against Bruisers/Assassins, keep it for them.
Don't overuse it early game, the mana-costs are to high.

[E]Vorpal Spikes:
Use it whenever it's off-cooldown when you trade with the enemy. Lvl 1 you want to push the wave with it aswell.
Remember that it is an Auto Attack Reset and it has a small slow, you can use this slow to hit your Q easier!

[R] Feast:
Do not use your Ult before any objective (Herald, Drake, Baron)
If you are sure, you will not kill the enemy champ in the next 20 seconds (when your ult is up) use it on a minion, if you know you can make a play, keep it.

General Tips and Tricks
If you are able to cs well enough, you can get "Lost Chapter" with the minion-wave that grants you Lvl 6. That minion-wave also includes a cannon minion that you can instantly use Feast [R] on which pushes it. I do this almost every single game, if im allowed to CS in the early game.

Once you get Everfrost, you can look for solokills whenever your Ultimate is up.

Once you have Everfrost + Demonic Embrace, you can easily play side-lane into almost every single champion (obviously Champs like Fiora will still beat you most of the times)

Cho'Gath is insanely good when playing around your jungler.

Cho'Gath offers an insane amount of CC + Damage while maintaining insane objective control with his Ultimate Ability.

You can setup a ton of plays, once you get the hang of his Q

Cho'Gaths W Ability is one of the most broken abilitys in the game. It can deactivate an entire Champion for up to 2 seconds (if they do not have any tenacity). Champions like Riven or Jayce get completly rekt by it.

With his E and Demonic Embrace he is very good into tanks aswell, offering a ton of Max HP Damage

He can survive most lane-phases with his Passiv(yes, even the hard ones are "surviveable")
