Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is generally the best choice on most champs, on Cho'gath specifically it helps you with ganks, escaping and flash nom-noming your opponents.

11.png If you are going to jungle there are two options: You take smite or you lose!

Masteries Back to Top

The "Ferocity" tree has only one potential questionmark. "Why 6111.pngover increased 6114.png?" It's quite simple,6114.png barely increases your damage at all since it doesn't affect true damage and therefore your ultimate feast.png does not benefit from it. In the meantime more attackspeed improves your clearspeed, dueling and utility.

However, the "Resolve" tree allows you a couple more options. You have to decide between focusing on utility or on tankyness. I tend to focus on utility most of the games and if the matchups seem to be really tough I often choose to be more beefy. Depending on the game you can also adjust those masteries because it's not all black and white.

You might also be wondering why I choose 6263.png over 6262.png. First off, 5% bonus health is amazing on Cho'Gath since hfeast.png scales with his bonus hp. Mostly however it's incredibly easy to proc 6263.png as both yourrupture.png and your vorpalspikes.pngproc it.

This is how I skill Cho'Gath in the jungle, every game.



Your R feast.png is your signature ability and also the most important one, you level it up whenever you can. 
 Your E vorpalspikes.png Is your main damage, apart from your ult feast.png, you need it to clear jungle and kill people in skirmishes or ganks, so you max it first.

Your W feralscream.png silences your opponent for a longer amount of time for every point you put into it and also the damage increases a bit, so that's your second choice.

Last but not least is your amazing one point wonder Q rupture.png, it's an amazing spell from level one on and putting additional points on it only increases it's damage which is pretty much irrelevant anyways.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Your starting items every game.
    Your first base if possible, bamis is the most important one though!

Core Items

    Personally I go for the green smite in 99% of my games, however I do feel like wards have less of an impact outside of high elo so you might want to opt for the blue smite as it helps you ganking, hitting your Q and gapclosing.
    Those are the items that enable you to make the enemy carries ragequit the game. Warmogs and Gargoyle Stoneplate make sure you have insanely high health to oneshot those kids and righteous glory lets you gapclose easily.
    Your options regarding boots, choose situationally.

Situational Items

    You have a carry going ham? Protect him and become super tanky at the same time!
    Are your opponents healing too much? Just get this bad boy!
    Need to shield your team from some nasty AoE? Locket is your best friend!
    Your answer to the fed enemy Yasuo and other crit focused threats.
    The best choice if some single target focused mage is causing trouble.

VS

Elise

Hard

Elise is probably the hardest matchup for you. She does have the tools to kill you early game. Her cocoon and %health damage will be annoying for you all game. Try to avoid 1v1 early in the game and try to silence her in fights so she cant  rappel and feel free to chomp her.

VS

Evelynn

Medium

Eve is quite an easy matchup for you personally. She can't really kill you unless she catches you with low HP, which is really hard regarding that you barely lose any health jungling. However the tricky part about eve isn't dueling her, it's controlling her which can be kind of tough as Cho'Gath. Try to keep her raptors warded at all times!

VS

Gragas

Easy

Other tanks don't really bother you so much, 1v1 fights shouldn't happen in either parties death as it's basically a wet noodle fight. Try to  feralscream.png  silence gragas when he dares using the  4.pnggragase.png combo on your carries so he can't follow it up with his gragasr.png.

VS

Graves

Medium

Graves can be really nasty early as he has the damage to kill you early in the game and can evade your rupture.png with his gravesmove.png. However once you become tanky enough the game should be free because the graves will be useless compared to you.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Jarvan is not the easiest matchup, his jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.png combo is super hard to cancel with your rupture.png , his armor shred will be useful against you all game your  4.png is the only way to escape jarvanivcataclysm.png. However unless he's super fed you will outtank him hard and he won't be able to 1v1 you, aslong as you have your feast.png.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Kha'Zix is really pretty easy, all you have to do is not fall behind early. As soon as you become tanky he won't be able to 1v1 you and your teamfight presence will be insane compared to him. In skirmishes and teamfights try to feralscream.png him and he's prettymuch donezo. 

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

Lee Sin is super easy to play against. Unless he gets really fed from the start he will later be useless. In a 1v1 against him, wait for him to gapclose onto you, if he uses blindmonkqone.png  simple put rupture.png wherever you stand, you will knock him up, follow up with feralscream.png and punch him until he dies or runs away crying. 

Later on it's really important that you stop his insec attempts with your rupture.png or feralscream.png. If you  manage to do so, it's a free game.

VS

Maokai

Easy

For Maokai it's pretty boring. You won't kill your opponent 1v1 unless you catch them in a horrible situation and the same goes for him. Don't focus on him, focus on punishing his ganks and ganking yourself. 

VS

Nidalee

Medium

One of the harder matchups but again, you outscale her and unless she's super fed you'll come to a point where she won't be able to kill you. Earlygame it's basically about dodgeing her javelintoss.png and hitting your rupture.png

Tips & Tricks Back to Top

How to land easy rupture.png

1. I've already mentioned it in certain matchups but the easiest way to hit your Q is to put it where someone is jumping. May it be Lee Sin with his Q, Nidalee with enhanced W or Rek'Sai tunnel. If u know where ur opponent is going, they're easy to hit.

2. If you get into close combat, be sure to first feralscream.png your target, follow up with an vorpalspikes.png empowered autoattack and then rupture.png them. It's much easier to hit a slowed and silenced target and also makes sure they can't flash away.

3. Maybe your teammate has a CC spell that is easier to land for them, such as Camille stun or Malzahars ultimate. If that's the case let them use their abilities first and then chain urs!

How to burst squishies from (almost) full health

Step 1: Make sure you stand close to at least 3 opponents
Step 2: Activate 3193.png to double your health
Step 3: feast.png for insane damage
