Does the slow effect from Rylai's Crystal Scepter apply to vorpal skies? I've not played much Cho'Gath, and every time i have the item I dont know if the effect is also applied to my spikes.

No it does not.
Same with any magic damage produced from attacking.

To correct Lugi, the answer is yes, Rylai's Crystal Scepter slow does apply on Vorpal Spikes.

Toggles and Autoattack magic damage does not apply the Rylai's Crystal Sceptre slow, only damage cast by abilities will slow, no matter if true, magic or physical damage

Vorpal Spikes is a spell, and is affected by spell vamp, so it should work with Rylai's I'll test it later.

15% slow only though. Still good but not amazingly good.

It depends, are you going jungle or solo top?

Look at Duffs Jungle Cho, he builds cho'gath with AD items because of the way cho's skills are set up.

"However, to take advantage of the new jungle, your previous (And even my own previous) Cho'Gath jungle builds won't be the optimal builds anymore, I'm afraid.
Cho'Gath has NEVER been optimal with AP items. Not in jungle, not in lane, never has, never will. Those builds are simply inefficient, mathematics and functional strength BOTH tell you that those AP builds have always been inferior. I don't care how hard your AP buffed Cho'Gath ultimate nukes with True damage, stop it. You're only tricking yourself. AP Cho'Gath is crippling himself. Why, you ask? Cho'Gath has decent AP ratios, why not build AP?
Well the answer is simple, there are two reasons. The fantastic CC and disable of Rupture and Feral Scream mean that you want to hold these skills until the right time. If you're building AP, holding them means you aren't using your items, since you spent gold on AP. If you build AP, you need to use your skills to use your items, and to use your skills prematurely and just for damage is to waste Cho's utility. You're effectively building against your own strengths."

Besides, if you build a Frozen Mallet on Cho, you will be getting a better slow, and more damagez.
