Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png  Flashing away from multiple ganks by being Cho'Gath or simply flashing on your enemy after hitting a Rupture (Q), Flash is a key spell on Cho'Gath.

14.png I always go ignite on Cho'Gath mid simply for the kill pressure early game as the enemy will try his best to harass you in lane. Ignite will help you One Shot a target as well.

12.png I never go teleport but teleport can be good occasionally. If you have a hard match up or if you wanna help pressure other lane, Teleport can be a good spell.

Masteries Back to Top

I prefer to go ThunderLord mid because it's easy to activate with Cho'Gath. Hit a q or w plus 1 auto attack activate ThunderLord. You can also activate it with your Spikes damage comming from your "E".

1. Starting E is for pushing the wave level one in order to push it far enough under the opponent mid laner tower. If you are against champion like 7.png or 99.png , it make it hard for them to last hit under tower level 1 and you get a slighly advantage from that. Make sure you push the wave enough and don't worry about taking a lot of Auto Attacks, you will regen most of it. If the enemy mid laner try to freeze the wave that is left, she will take plenty of damage from it.


2. Going Rupture (Q) second. I personnally prefer to go Q second as the other mid laner is used to see W. Q is easy to land when the opponent has no mobility low level. That way, you can deal good amount of damage as well as being safe from getting damaged back.

3. Maxing Rupture (Q). I max Q since I know it's better. Q is 1/1 for ap scaling as W is 0.7/1 for ap . Q always cost 90 mana  as W goes 70/80/90/100/110. You can spam Q more often as well as the cooldown is lower. It does more damage but you have to hit it !

4. Feast (R) Feast is the best ability of Cho'Gath mid. 300 true damage + 0.7/1 ap makes it a really high damaging ability low level, or high level. You will be able to one shot squishies early level by landing full combo on them.

Core Items

    Your second item
    Core item + 1 situational

Situational Items

1. Starting with dorans ring provide you higher mana regen level. With your passive 3.25 + .25 mana per level + the 4 mana from dorans ring, you get 7.25 mana per unit level 1. 


2. 3158.png. Going lucidity will help you reaching 40% Cooldown reduction. You can go 3020.png if you go Zhonya.

3. 3165.png . Going morello first provide you everything Cho'Gath mid wants. Mana, cooldown reduction and a whole lot of ap. 20% cooldown reduction with one item will help you casting your ultimate more often.

4. 3285.png. Luden's echo help you dealing more damage on champion or minions. It also gives you mobility speed to help you rotate on other lanes or to get to your enemy faster after hitting a Rupture (Q). Give good ratio of ap.

5. 3001.png You go abyssal if you are against double ap composition. Since the the 6.9 patch an the AP item change, Abyssal is great as well for cooldown reduction.

6.3089.png It will be easier to reach a high amount of ap with deathcap. With the really good ap scaling on all your spells, having a lot of ap will provide huge burst.

7. 3135.png Going Void Staff is usually a good way to help you one shot tank or tanky enemies. You can go this item earlier if they build a lot of magic resist.

8. 3157.png Going Zhonya's is when you play against heavy burst enemy champion like 238.png or 105.png. It will help you survive easier in fight late game.

9. 3026.png Guardian Angel is rarely an item you will take in consideration, but if you feel like you need more armor and magic resist , this item will help you take more damage and survive easier in fight.

VS

Ahri

Easy

Ahri will poke you a lot in laning phase, try to poke her with your Rupture. This match up is most likely in your favor.

VS

Anivia

Hard

This match up is really considering the fact that the only way to kill her and her egg, is by keeping your ultimate for her passive. Try to poke her before all in. 


crystallize.png her Wall will be really hard for you. The enemy jungler can gank you easily with this

VS

Annie

Medium

Annie is really annoying in lane, try to play a little bit far back to not get poked by her q. Each time she cast a q, try to take minions.


Level 6, you should be able to win the all in because you have a bigger range.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

Aurelion Sol is really easy for Cho'Gath. Your Rupture or Feral Scream removes his W and Since he has a low range you can easily kill him level 6 or even before.

VS

Azir

Medium

Azir will poke you a whole lot and will be really annoying, he will snowball you early but you will be able to kill him level 6, be patient!

VS

Brand

Hard

Brand's Crowd Control and range is just to hard for Cho'Gath. Brand can also get a Liandry which is a good item against Cho'Gath. 


Try not to pick Cho into Brand !

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

Cassiopeia can be hard or easy. It's most likely a skill matchup, if she hit her Q, silence her so she can't E you over and over. Try to dodge her q and push the lane.

VS

Ekko

Medium

You can beat ekko by killing him before he presses R, simply silence him to block him ult, and let the magic happens!

VS

Karma

Medium

Karma can abuse you since you are a melee champ. Don't stand to close of your minions since she can q them and hit you. If she W you, try to stand behind , but far from your minion to block her Q, or Q + W her. She will try to do her combo if you don't have your cooldown.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Leblanc is really hard to kill because of all her movement and she can just abuse you in lane, try not to pick Cho'Gath into leblanc.

VS

Lux

Medium

Lux cooldown is way to high to deal with your sustain, but if you get caught in a q she can combo you to death ! dodge skillshot and try to poke her down

VS

Ryze

Medium

You can deny ryze by silencing him when he ults or passive. If you misses Q, he will run into you so just back off a little bit, play this one more safe and when you hit a Q, all in him!

VS

Syndra

Medium

Play far back, don't get harass by her Q ! she has high burst level 6 as well, try to kill her when she hasn't stack her q for her ultimate

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Tf has no way to shut you down, you can abuse him by Rupturing him down. He will try to get advantage by roaming a whole lot. Push down the lane and deny the cs.

VS

Zed

Easy

Silence him when he ult, poke him, out sustain, Cho'Gath simply counters zed.

Laning Phase, Playstyle Back to Top

  • Since you are an immobil champion, the enemy jungler will try to gank a lot, make sure to get vision early and try to know where he is on the map. You can push your lane then roam or do a camp in the jungle, but make sure the enemy mid laner doesn't freeze the wave in a spot where you are in danger of gank.
  • You can play Aggressive or either defensive. Just make sure to zone the enemy mid laner and deny him cs. 
  • You can also, if you are ahead, try to take enemy buffs when you have your ultimate. It is really easy for Cho'Gath to walk up and take the buff in less than 5 seconds. Make sure there's no ward or the enemy jungler isn't near.
  • TEAMFIGHT : Target the enemy squishies. You can easily take them down or zone them out of the fight. You can try to hit Q on multiple target to set wombo combo !
