Introduction

Well, last season I was 2050 elo I got many games on Cho on top and mid he's one of my best and favourite champs.

This is my first guide so any feedback is good.
My english isnt that good, my home is in Germany.
You can add me ingame my ingame name is Trueraz.

Ps: Everything I wrote in this guide is for Top and Mid!

Get to know Cho'Gath

[http://www.lolking.net/shared/guides/images/01/03/b1add39c700affeec231f6f55dcc.jpg]


LORE


There is a place between dimensions, between worlds. To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To those that truly know, however, it is called the Void. Despite its name, the Void is not an empty place, but rather the home of unspeakable things - horrors not meant for minds of men. Cho'Gath is a creature born of the Void, a thing whose true nature is so awful most will not speak its name. Its fellows have been poking at the walls that divide dimensions for a crack, a way into Runeterra, where they can visit their own personal paradise of horror upon the world. They are called the Voidborn, creatures so ancient and terrible that they have been removed from history altogether. It is rumored that the Voidborn command vast armies of unspeakable creatures on other worlds, that they were once driven from Runeterra by powerful magic lost to antiquity.

If such tales are true, then the rumors that follow must be equally true - that one day, the Voidborn will return. Even now, something dark stirs in Icathia, perverting the summoning rituals of the League to allow the presence of Cho'Gath. It is an alien creature of malice and violence, a thing that causes all but the most stalwart to cringe in fear. Cho'Gath even appears to feed on its predations, growing and swelling as it gorges itself. Worse yet, the creature is intelligent, perhaps greatly so, making most wonder how such a monster could be contained. Fortunately, the power of the League's summoning has confined Cho'Gath's presence exclusively to the League of Legends. It is here that summoners use Cho'Gath's Voidborn abilities to help decide the fate of Runeterra. The Terror of the Void knows what fate it would choose for Runeterra, given half the chance.

"Woe betide the day when Cho'Gath grows weary of the League".

Champion Spotlight





TRIVIA


  • Cho'Gath was designed by Ezreal(person) and Guinsoo.
  • Cho'Gath's name is likely derived from "Shoggoth," an otherworldly monster from the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The two are similar in that they are alien to the world they reside in (Valoran/Earth), but otherwise they do not share much similarities.
  • Cho'Gath is the second champion to receive a second legendary skin after Corki.
  • Cho'Gath's dance is the same as Mickey Mouse's dance in Disney's Fantasmic! show at Disneyland.
  • Before season 3, the icon used to indicate the Tenacity stat on champions is the same icon of his Vorpal spikes icon.
  • Cho'Gath may be inspired by the popular Japanese movies series, Godzilla, as Cho'Gath bears similarities to the 1st form of Destroyah.
  • Cho'Gath bears a resemblance to Malebogia and Violator from the Spawn franchise.


Relations


  • Cho'Gath, Kha'Zix, and Kog'Maw are all creatures of the Void.
  • Kassadin seeks to prevent Voidborns such as Cho'Gath from invading Valoran, and therefore opposes him.
  • On the other hand, Malzahar seeks to release the void to the world, and therefore has allied with Cho'Gath for natural reasons.

Why Cho'Gath?

He fits in every team comb.

Pros:

  • High sustain in lane
  • Tons of CC
  • Good burst
  • Good wave clearing
  • No real counters, only harder matchups
  • You can control blues, reds, drakes and barons
  • Hes fast and fun
  • Gotta feast them all
  • Tanky

Cons:

  • Melee
  • No escape
  • Not so strong early game
  • You rely on your skillshots

Masteries

In my opinion those are the best Masteries for Cho' Gath on Toplane and Midlane.
I take them because you are melee and you need more tankiness.

Runes

Ability Power Quintessence:
For the damage you will need it to harass.

Glyph of Magic Resist:
For the early magic resistence and early enemy spell harass.

Seal of Armor:
For the early attack damage harass,jungler ganks and minion damage.

Mark of Magic Penetration:
All of your spells are doing Magic damage so you need it.

Summoner Spells



Explanation:
You should take Flash on Top and Mid, because you need it to jump over walls, make a Feast kill or escape ganks.


//

Explanation:
You can decide your second spell and it depends on the lane you go.

You will most likely take on Mid for the burst and the damage its my favourite second spell on Cho'Gath.

and are most likely for Top but you could also take .

if no one in your team takes you should take it.

is good for ganks at bot or drake fights.

Item Builds/Explanation

General


Best boots gives CC reduction + MR.

Buy these boots if you are against heavy AD unless they have heavy CC.

Only buy these boots if the enemy team has no CC.

That Item is best for Cho'Gath you need the MR, CDR, mana reg and AP. Always get it.

Get this Item if you need more MR and AP. Its a very good Item since it gives AP and MR.

Well, if you have this Item you can burst everyone with your combo so its good.

Dont get it if you already have ! CDR,armor,mana and passive great item. Good against heavy AD.

Gives you huge damage output. Gives you insane AP so always get it. You can burst like a boss.

A second life is always good. Gives you armor and MR. Great item overall I get it everygame.

Only get this Item if the enemy team has insane MR.

This Item is good if the enemy team is hella tanky. If you end up auto attacking all the time get it.

You can get it instead of . Get it if your team already has .

Option if you are playing against Warwick or Malzahar or Skarner. Only upgrade if you are late late game.

Skills

Passive: Carnivore

Whenever Cho'Gath kills a unit, he recovers 34 - 68 (+2.5 each level) health and 3.5-7.75 mana (+0.25 each level).
Explanation:

The passive is pretty good you can sustain longer in lane you get mana and health per minion kill.




Q: Rupture
Ruptures the ground at target location. After a short delay, enemies are launched into the air for 1 second, dealt 80 / 135 / 190 / 245 / 305 (+100% of ability power) magic damage, and have their movement speed slowed by 60% for 3 seconds.

Cooldown 10 seconds

Cost 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 / 120 mana

Range 950

Explanation:

Gives nice slow has good range and is good for engaging fights.




W: Feral Scream
Cho'Gath screams in a cone in front of him, silencing enemies for 2 / 2.5 / 3 / 3.5 / 4 second(s) and causing 75 / 125 / 175 / 225 / 275 (+70% of ability power) magic damage.

Cooldown 16 seconds

Cost 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 mana

Range 300

Explanation:

Scales good and the silence is just insane and its very good on mid and in teamfights also has good range to harass.





E: Vorpal Spikes
Toggle: Cho'gath's physical attacks launch spikes which deal 20 / 35 / 50 / 65 / 80 (+30% of ability power) magic damage to a line in front of him.

Range 40

Explanation:

With this spell you can last hit easier and it helps in AA battles overall an good spell and scales with ap makes it even better.




R: Feast
Deals 300 / 475 / 650 (+70% of ability power) damage to target champion, or 1000 damage to target minion (ignores resists).

If the target is killed by Feast, Cho'Gath grows, gaining 90 / 120 / 150 maximum health (maximum 6 stacks). Cho'Gath loses up to half (rounded up) stacks upon death.

Cooldown 60 seconds

Cost 100 mana

Range 100

Explanation:

Reason why you play Cho'Gath the op feast. You get stacks if you eat minions so you have more hp up to 6 stacks and it does true damage. Its good for last hitting barons or drakes if your jungler is bad.

Skill Order/Skill Combos

Skill Combos


>>>

>>>

All those combos are working without ignite aswell

Escape


>

Use Q on the enemy then instantly flash away they wont get you.
If you want you can silence them so they cant flash away.


Skill Order



At lvl 1 one point for the invade and if you get ganked its good to escape.
You max this third for the damage.



You max this second because you need it to harass and for its silence.


You max this last because it doesnt help you much early game and on lane.
You take 1 point in this at lvl 4 for easier farming and stronger AA trades.



Well, you max this first since its the best spell take it every time you can.
Insane damage insane burst potential.

Early Game

Farm safely and dont bring up too many trades, all of your spells are AoE so you will push the lane and thats makes you vulnerable to gank.
Always have enough mana for your Q cause you can only escape ganks if you have it up.
Dont overextend without wards.
Dont be greedy.
Always care for enemy jungler ganks.
When you hit lvl 6 instantly Feast a minion, when you are 6 always try to have all the stacks.
Dont use your for offensive kills only if you are 100 % sure you will get him and you dont get killed!
Push lane start ganking.
And keep control of the buffs.

Mid Game

Once you hit lvl 11 you can kill nearly every champ with your combo.
Keep control of drakes.
Start fighting with your teams.
Keep on pushing the lanes.
Keep control of buffs.
Gank a lot.
And keep your self at 6 stacks!

Late Game

Keep control of objectives (drakes,baron,buffs).
Dont get caught!
Walk with your team and push out lanes.
Try baiting Baron if you are stronger.
If you are weaker then play safe and stay at your turrets and try to catch someone.

Team Fights

Offensive:


Try to instantly burst the enemy carry (AD/AP).
Silence>Flash>Feast>Ignite.
And try to hit them with rupture.

Defensive:


Protect your carries with your rupture and silence.
If a bruiser gets near to your carry feast and ignite him then hes probably scared.

Synergies

Well if we talk about synergies he simply works with every Char that has stun or some good CC.


All of those are good with Cho.

Solo Q tips

Soloq Tips


NEVER insult ANYONE, NEVER say I told you so or ask someone why they just died or did not attack or did not do anything. What's in the past stays in the past only mention things in chat that will help you win. If someone on your team is flaming put them on your ignore, do not ask them to stop flaming as they will just end up speaking to you and you will be wasting time replying to them.

TURN OFF /ALL there is NO reason for you to have it on, having it on will never ever help you win, never, it is just a distraction.

---

Some not so obvious Taboo words you should never say
GG - There is no need to ever say Good game, it does not help you win, as if you are saying this it's either you have already won, you are saying it sarcastically to someone who has just thrown the game on your team or you are saying it in /all to the enemy team to annoy them which will get you reported.

Reported/Report - This is bannable, you are not allowed to ask for reports and it will also end up getting you reported, it also demotivates your team if you are saying this to someone on your team and will make them play worse.

Surrender - You should not be surrendering, every game is winnable and telling your team to surrender or FF is negative, you should not be calling any surrender votes.

Ignore/Ignored - Never ever SAY you are ignoring someone or ignored or tell someone to ignore someone. Doing so will make the person who is being ignored angry. People hate being ignored and this will probably make the person being ignored start raging in /all to get their voice heard making it even worse for your team. This could also make you prone to being reported for refusal to communicate.

---

Use them both simultaneously for the best effect, set the playlist to random and enjoy.


PLAYLIST: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zSYdFmEFCI&list=PLT8y5NBIDHxtnaaxQlTev3sFpbaJk5QZp
RAINYMOOD: http://www.rainymood.com

Set yourself a goal to try this out for one game, then one day, then one week, then one month eventually it will become second nature and you will stop raging it has worked for me and I have not been banned for months now and I climbed a lot of elo after stopping my rage. Flaming really does make you lose. Even if you are 20 kills behind you can ALWAYS win, when you think hope is lost just try your best you will actually have a high chance of turning the game around and winning


ONCE YOU HAVE MASTERED THE ART OF SILENCE

If you are here i assume you have conquered your inner rage and managed to not rage for a month + and feel you are ready to upgrade your soloq power. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS OTHERWISE

You can now talk more in your team and motivate your team try saying stuff like:

If behind

''We can still win this''
''We can win lategame''
''We just have to outplay them'' (Come up with some pro tactics, like pink warding nash/drake/catching someone)

If ahead

''Keep this up good job''
''Well played all''

When someone on your team gets a kill

''Nice one!''
''gj''
''wp''

If someone on your team dies and you were nearby
''Sorry(Insertname)'' - EVEN IF IT WASN'T YOUR FAULT

If someone on your team is feeding hardcore
''Don't give up (insertlane) We can still win try playing a bit safer'' - If you think it's applicable [If you are jungling trying and help them if you can]

If you die

''Sorry guys''
''My bad''

If someone does a big throw
''Ok a minor setback :P we can still win guys'' (say to wait for nash out, stall, or w/e it is you need to do to win like defing etc)

If someone or people on your team are flaming or negative
''Come on guys/(insertname) we can win this just try your best we will win please stop flaming/negative remarks it won't helps us''

[IF THEY KEEP FLAMING JUST PUT THEM ON IGNORE]

Made by Ninjafuya

Warding

[http://www.lolking.net/shared/guides/images/3b/18/1b5c5edafe6a2504f467fcff3cb0.jpg]


Every time you go back you should buy a ward.
Its only 75 Gold and it can save lifes and change games!
Those are the places that are good to ward!
[center]Always get wards!!
