League of Legends (LoL) Question: Why isn't Cho'Gath built AP?

    Why isn't Cho'Gath built AP?

    I mean, his Q has 1.0 AP Ratio, his W and R have 7.0 (plus R with 300-650 True damage) and his autoattacks can hit 3.0 to everyone in the tf... So why is everybody building RoA and letting it there?

    Cho'Gath is build AP. I've seen him mid quite a few times, especially if someone picks Katarina, someone will pick Cho'Gath as he's hard to kill due to his sustain.

    People build Rod of Ages because Cho'Gath excels at being an off-tank. In a health stacking meta, why wouldn't you?

    Granted, it is all based on play-style. I don't play Cho'Gath as he isn't my style.

    Seems like the uninformed player, familiar with squishy burst AP mages, not a super tanky Cho'Gath

    Yeah i'm not sure why you don't think he is played AP as I have never really seen him not played with some AP items.

    Indeed he is. Super strong when AP tanky too.

    Cho is either built as a full AP cho gath or full tank cho gath.

    Full AP cho'gath is basically just an ap mid burst champ. low mobility but insane burst. Hard to aim though.

    full tank cho gath is built without AP because the AP is very counter-intuitive to cho'gath's role as a tank. as a tank cho wants to be a disrupter so he focuses on tankiness + CDR. Effectiveness is greatly decreased when you purchase ap.

    there are great ways to combine them
    This is known as the Rod of Ages

    The pro's of full AP Cho is that he can deal massive damage. The downside though is you have to land skill shots or your enemy will punish you. He is also less tanky.
