Threats & Synergies
vayne is annoying for any tank champion to deal with, you can out play her easily if you watch when she uses her condemn or steps out of place in a team fight, knock her up, pop e, silence, aa, cancel aa delay with titanic and auto the last (if she lives) and ofc you can ult her for those juicy stacks
i put vi at the highest threat because her denting blows are a massive pain in combination with the cc she brings to the table makes it very hard to deal with her. i tend to ban her when i am planning in playing cho.
trynd is a little hard to deal with if he takes "Lethal tempo" if he takes PtA or any other rune you're pretty safe
kat can be a pain if she is fed or in the hands of a good player, she is easy to punish with your silence, w, q, e, aa, titanic, r
All tremble before the mighty space crab... thingy!
Aftershock is a must have on cho giving you % increases to both armour and magic resist and a nice burst when you decide it's time to eat.
Demolish as well, is a must have. playing a champ with 7k hp... dont think i need to say much more...
Conditioning gives you a nice % boost to armour and magic resist so you can tank more.. duh
Overgrowth is HUGE when it comes to chogath, stacking both flat and % hp turns cho into an absolute monster with titanic hydra,
Ultimate Hat lets you stack your ult quicker
Celerity is nice to have for the added move speed in the eary game making your first jungle clear slightly faster than most junglers. in addition to having more move speed for ganks.
you can choose to take Transcendence instead of Celerity if you want more cdr in the mid game, but it will slow your jungle clear and lower your Gank pressure.
you can ofc take Font of life instead of demolish if you have a very squishy and auto attack reliant team and dont have a raka, sona or nami for heals.
with cho you have the open option to invade the enemy jungle at level 2 (level 3 is best) your Q slow in combination with your E damage and slow as well make it very hard for enemy junglers to deal with and either results in a kill or a flash, putting the jungler behind and making it harder for them to gank.
even after a terrible start in the early game cho can make a HUGE comeback, dealing boat loads of damage and soaking almost anything thrown at him. i have came back from a couple 0/5 games with cho where i either get greedy or my laners dont help with ganks. cho snowballs really well, dont give up!
Basic combo for every all in (should be a piece of cake)
aa = auto attack
q = rupture
w = feral scream
e = vorpal spikes
r = nom nom nom(feast)
th = titanic hydra
all in = q,w,e,aa,th,aa,r
this is pretty much the same for any fight, remember you're still a tank and it is still your job to peel for your squishies, make use of your Q range and silence to help your team out.
so go out there and nom nom on some of those tasty yordles !!
