In Ranked, I used to play Solo Top Cho'Gath for the longest time ever, but I'm afraid to touch him since the epic nerfs. I usually jungle with Udyr, Olaf, or Amumu.

Now, I need a new go-to solo laner for those times when I'm firstpick or secondpick and I need to step up to the plate. I tried Singed, but he's only really good against weak lanes.

I have about 3500 IP and a crapload of champs available, so do you guys have any suggestions? I don't prefer to play carries, but I'm decent with most casters and tanky DPS.

Nidalee
Renekton
Urgot




Nidalee is the best pick since she's cheaper than Renekton, and she can heal for a ton, while dealing lots of damage.

Unless you goof up a LOT, her heal and a doran's ring will keep you in the lane for like.. Ever.

nidalee is ******edly strong in a lane
annie and kassadin are pretty strong
xin, jarv, and irelia are all strong too
akali is a decent solo

Ren - Can harass well with Q and E combo is also tanky

Jarvan- Good harass with Q has shield and is also tanky

Sion- Best creep wave farming ability has stun and is tanky

Nasus is a great solo lane champ.

Because all of his abilities work well in a solo lane.His spirit fire to clear waves, You can farm siphoning strike without teammate interference, wither can basically ensure a kill during a gank and Fury of the sands is an excellent ult for any situation.

Cho'gath is still fine

But otherwise Singed, Renekton, and Irelia are powerful choices for solo top.

Riot doesn't do 'to-the-ground' nerfs like some other game companies, I barely noticed chogath changes.
I always liked him and firmly believed he was OP and I still like him he seems more in-line.
