Summoner Spells Back to Top

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

still experimenting with masteries...

his passive gives great sustain already...but we abuse this even more with resolve!

start Q for greater clearing!
E give 15 dmg...but with your attack speed the dmg will be equal to Q, but you get a knockup...
max W for silence duration.
you can also max Q if you are pretty sure to hit it every time, if you gank someone like annie who engage, thresh, so on...if you max Q the cooldown will be very low and a knockup is almost free kill, 2 knockups are 101%kill.

1 point in E gives 15 additional dmg...but how many auto attacks can u pull of in a gank?! depends...of course with red buff and Q you can slow...only give more points in E if you are sure you can attack a lot

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    this is your start...the potion is great after fights and will refill. your sustain is great already, so you dont need to spend money on single pots all day

Core Items

    ninjas vs fiora/zed/adc matchups... mercs vs cc matchups boots5 if you want to be faster in lanes/ganks..also great to disengage, if u hit a q they get knockup and slowed...your boots proc, bye :D
    alright, since ludens has been nerfed, i would recommend to go back to the roots! HEALTH! we want health! it also increases our bonus health by 15% yes!

Situational Items

    you have a few ap friends...this increase your damage greatly aswell!
    i really like this item! cooldown reduction....and a great slow! if you hit your Q, they can´t get away anymore! you have so much health thanks to your ultimate and masteries, thats why i prefer this over randiuns! it also helps peeling for your carrys
    great item overall!
    you keep snowballing...your skills scale so well with ap! especially your ultimate, which is TRUE damage scales with 70%ap...this is for 1-hitting anyone with QWR combo
    support doesnt buy it? cdr, magic resi, health. yes.
    having mana problems? its good right now! but try get it right after your cinderhulk enchantment or ibg, if you need that armor/slow first
    they have a lot dps with auto attacks...this will help you carry your team!
    movement speed, armor, health..cho likes this one!
    right now this can win you many games...if you feel your team needs some pushing power, get it as 3rd item! Cinderhulk, IBG or roa than this
    little outdated, but still great if you want some damage! great build to carry solo Q games....if you need the armor early, skip roa and get dead mans chest after runic
    Since 6.10 i would recommend this path....cinderhulk for the hP abuse, IBG for the burst, slow, sticking power, roa because it scales with everything you need. Banshee since you are kitable as hell, dead mans for the movement bonus, boots depend on the game, you can get boots5 for the tricky engages, swiftness if they got some slows, mercs if they have good hard cc...
    still trying those two....they seem to be a good option

thanks to his ultimate passive and masteries, you get so much bonus health! a single armor and magic resistance item should be enough to be tanky as hell

as you see, cho is very versatile in his building path, you want to bring a lot cc and tankyness to your team and ult the carrys or to protect yours, depends on what you focus on. His skills deal a lot damage!

never stick to a single build, buy what you need!

VS

Amumu

Medium

amumu is never weak!! his cc can decide games!! if he engage on your team, dont "waste" your Q on him, use it on the carrys and bruiser coming for your carrys!!
tank and peel for your carrys!!

VS

Elise

Medium

get 3111_32.png and 1057_32.png into 3001.png
she has damage which scales with your health, but still you outscale her during the whole game!

VS

Evelynn

Easy

she is no real thread to you....she is squishy, you will be very tanky in the early mid already...but try to avoid 1on1 her

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

overall his not a big problem! most will go for damage, so he will be squishy....thanks to your ultimate you should be able to kill him in a 1on1.

if he is ahead, be more careful, try countergank him. he is somewhat like cho...great burst dmg, but not that much after it...thanks to your E and tankyness you will beat him

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

he isn´t that dangerous as you may think!! just use your abilitys whisly!!
if he Q you....hold your Q back until he is coming for you...

use your trinket on your 2nd buff, if he invade, make sure he is tanking the monster dmg. as long as you hit your skills, he will never be able to trade with you!

3207_32.png--->3024_32.png

VS

Nautilus

Medium

he brings tons of cc....i am a huge fan of nautilus, but if he engage on your team, peel with your Q, so he end up alone 1on5! he lacks of damage.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

if he is ahead, he can be a problem! great base movement speed. high dmg...
but overall you should be fine 1on1, also counterganks will always end up in your favour!

VS

Rengar

Medium

very careful early! most rengar player will invade you....use your trinket...in mid late, he is no thread at all!! if he aim for your carrys, QWR on him and he will die in a second before he can use all his abilitys!
still medium, becuase 1on1 he may have the upper hand

VS

Shaco

Easy

can be very annoying, but another squishy guy...with your ultimate he shouldnt be a problem, just hit the right one ;D

VS

Shyvana

Hard

every time you miss your Q on her, you die! she is very strong during the whole game! never try to 1on1 her! focus on supporting your teammates in fights!

VS

Udyr

Hard

somehow like shyvana but without a real gap closer....as long as you hit your Q on him, you may get away, NEVER duel with him! peel for your teammates

VS

Volibear

Medium

very tanky mate....he will outdamage you thanks to his bite and ultimate...also his passive is a pain!! i would prefer to avoid that matchup, but if you manage to kite him with your Q you can have the upper hand.

VS

Warwick

Medium

warwick can be a hard matchup in late game! you won´t be able to escape from him, but early you have way more damage!! gank, feed your teammates! he may farm up to lvl6.

VS

Wukong

Easy

like all squishys....no big thread! of course his ulti engages can be devestating! countergank the ape! and you will snowball easy

tipps Back to Top

Starting

always start bot side, if you get good help, you only need 2pots for double buff. Gank right after that!
most go top lane...check the matchups and decide, as long as you hit your Q, you win almost any 2on2!

the ultimate sustain in the jungle

walk to a camp, use Q and start auto attacking a little later, this way you hit your Q and 2 auto attacks before the monsters hit you the first time. Thanks to jungle item and your passive you can clear always as much camps as you want!

use your knockup right!

remember to aim it right!
if they have a escape tool like ezreals arcane shift, use your silence before you Q.

make use of your ultimate

Your ultimate cooldown is very low, it´s not necessary to keep it up forever until you need it in a fight, if you plan to clear 2-3 camps in your jungle, use your ultimate on the big monsters to stack your passive!

true damage gamebreaker! how to use your ultimate in fights

another tipp...most cho player always wait with their ultimate to take all kills....don´t do that!!if the trade is close and your mate is about to die, use it in the middle of the fight! the damage is insane!! thanks to true damage...this may safe your teammates, because most will run in fear after you took 1/3 of their health with a single spell, but in most cases you still get the kill done!!

use your teammates cc

if your teammates have cc...you can wait with your Q, a lot of times i did engage and used my Q i had a thresh i.e flay them out of the knock up area -.-
timing is very important!

i am behind....

even if you are behind, you can peel greatly for your carrys!! use your Q right on them to protect them from assassins or bruisers...

accidently tower aggro becuase of vorpal spikes -.-

if you help your teammates to take down a tower, remember your E may hit enemys standing behind the tower! disable it. the bonus dmg will not apply on towers anyways.





late game Back to Top

what is your goal?
overall, it is to protect your carry!!
it´s a lot easier to hit your targets, and with your true damage you can take out bruisers easy.

if they have something like a fed akali, zed, adc...keep your ultimate up to 1shot him with a WQR combo!
of course there are situations you just need to use it...it is situational.

the range of cho´s Q is good. you may catch someone of their team, so your team is able to engage with even more cc.
keep an eye on your carrys and the enemys...you are not only a tank, you do a lot damage aswell!
