Nice guide for starting out, and imo good job mentioning the T1 -> T3 skip for runes, T2s really aren't worth the IP for what they do. And yes, health quints are like, god. D:

Afaik though Nunu/Amumu are tank/mages, Nunu's Q and R, and Amumu's R do a hefty amount of damage with a little bit of AP (so RoA isn't bad on either).

Nunu isn't only support or tank. Beleive it or not, I use him as a nuke/dps. I just build up 300+ AP so his last ability hits 1.5-2k damage, combined with a 400-700 damage Ice ball, he's one epic nuker. Although, his base dps sucks, Ice ball is a cheap, yet effective way to bug people, due to it's long range and slowing effect.

Interesting way to play him. I'll add a bit more detail on Nunu and Yi just so people know what they basically do.

Edit: Heh...wrong character. Oh well ^^;;

Great guide. I wish it was around when I first started LoL.

A few corrections:
Cho'gath does not benefit from Armor penetration runes AT ALL. His main damage comes from Rupture/Scream, Vorpal Spikes (magic damage on attack) and true damage from feast (ignores MR and AR). And even though he's melee, he's more of a tank/caster hybrid.
Don't go around confusing new players with that, mmmmkay?

Thanks for the feedback! I added a link to an AP Cho'Gath guide, hopefully that will help new players interested in playing him as a beefy caster. Personally, I've never built him that spec before, since usually I only play Cho when my team needs a tank. I wish I had a good tank Cho guide to suggest as well.

And thanks for the support Miltus

In the free Cho Gath link, it says 0 code remaining which means we can't get the free Cho Gath skin anymore?

At least right now you can't. I've seen them go through 3 series of codes, so they might start the give-away again. It's worth checking every few weeks anyhow.

Quick bump since I've seen several new players recently, mostly because I've been on an alt helping new friends learn the game.

Quick question. If we buy the boxed set for the game can we use that on an existing account or do we have to create a new account to get the characters and riot points? Also, if I bought it used would the codes be invalid because somebody already used them?
