THIS VERSION OF THE GUIDE (On the LoL Forums) IS OUTDATED

There is no space to update the guide in this post, however it is still being updated and improved on Leaguecraft.

The guide in this thread will be removed to prevent confusion.


(((Random)))
*Disclaimer: This guide assumes that you understand the basics of LoL and possess at least proficient harassing and avoidance skills.*
*DPS Cho'Gath is not for everyone, and requires skill to pull off properly with a positive KDA. Practice makes perfect though*

To each his own. If you don't like the idea of a character that breaks the mold of an "ideal build", then leave this thread. "OMG DPS SUX", "USELESS", "WHATS THE POINT" are all useless posts that contribute nothing of value to anything, except for the size of your e-peen (which if you identify with any of the above quotes, is tiny). Serious critique and discussion is welcome. Trolls are not. (Seriously, find something better to do than waste everyone's time)

How does attack speed make last-hitting easier in any way, shape or form?
You know what attack speed really helps with? Getting last hits when you autoattack. This is completely unnecessary

Abominable grammar and writing conventions evinced here.

You don't know what a semicolon is. Stop trying to sound smart.

Cool story, bro. Don't you think you're trying a little too hard there? Like you have something to prove?

If your guide isn't finished, should you really posting it? If your computer didn't come with a copy of notepad then I suppose it's alright to do.

As far as it's content is concerned, it isn't anything I can't find out by spending a few minutes in the public chat channel

More attack speed, means more attacks per second. Which means more chances to get the killing blow on a minion; (I'll use semicolons all day if it'll piss ya off) this can be helpful to players with a ****ty internet connection. Cho'gath has this nice little passive that heals him whenever he gets last hits, so regen items are not as crucial, and players can focus more on becoming more lethal. ;;;

Thats nice that you don't like my format, cry more? Maybe it'll help? ;;;
EDIT: As I said in my first post, I was having alot of spelling errors when I was writing this up, I plan to fix these errors as I encounter them while re-reading my guide.

Notepad doesn't save the BOLD, Italics, or Underscores.

Cho'Gath player here.

Very interesting post from OP, you seem very good playing with Cho but I don't like your build. Why?
I don't see the point of building melee DPS items on Cho, there is no synergy with anything the character has.

When I go mid (i play tank Cho) i first take regrowth pendant witch, with my passive, gives me monstrous health regen and makes me unpushable. Then, as the game advances, i build more and more defensive items, to the point where the other player has no hope of ever pushing me short of a 3 man gank. In addition to the kills I get, i shutdown the other mid while farming creeps like crazy.

Really, there is nothing good that can come out of building melee DPS with a Cho. Last time i saw one, I feasted the **** out of him and he ended up 3/7 after calling me a noob at the beginning of the game.

attackspeed synergizes with the freespikes. the build kills pretty much any other char in a 1v1 situation because of the disables and the damage output (jax will dodge your **** and beat you down).

if you get disabled yourself you're kinda screwed though, so that's the limitation you have to deal with

Thanks. As for the synergy, Basically this build allows you to disable and stun a opponent for long enough to get a kill quite easily in alot of situations, or if not then provide a huge damage output for the rest of the team to build off of. By late game this build has around 214 damage with 90% crit chance for 537.5 dmg, two times a second. Even a huge build such as a opposing cho'gath will go down in six seconds if properly sustained.

Interesting. Cho'Gath is my #2 most played even though I rarely play him now but I almost always went AP or tank mode. I'll try this out tonight.
