I love me some Cho'Gath, I tell you what. I've been playing around with the new masteries, but I'm still not 100% sure what I want to do with him. I generally always play solo top tank Cho with Flash/TP, though I might replace Flash with Ghost. I've got two sets right now: 9/0/21 with Swiftness/Meditation/Runic Affinity/Awareness/Intelligence and 9/21/0 with Vigor/Evasion/Enlightenment/Initiator/Honor Guard. I really like all the new tools in Defense (especially Juggernaut's +3% HP with synergizes amazingly well with Feast's passive), but I can't take improved Flash/Teleport without losing either Juggernaut (and missing out on that synergy) or magic penetration (and becoming ignorable late game). The lack of Meditation isn't such a big deal since I run Flat Mana Regen seals. I don't grab Durability+Veteran's Scars because Cho already gets tons of health and benefits more from mitigation (I also max the basic Armor/MR masteries).

What are all you other Cho players running? Let us discuss like gentlemen.

I have always, and will always take 9/0/21 just for the CDR. Cho can be built a ton of ways, but he always needs to be able to spam his spells as much as possible. with all the cdr masteries I can usually get away with buying 1 cdr item or having blue most of the game and being close to max cdr. All of the other masteries seem lackluster on cho.

There's a scaling CDR mastery in defense, though it doesn't surpass the flat 6% until level 14. Also, I definitely like Ghost over Flash on Cho. He doesn't need very precise positioning, and Ghost > Feast works better than Flash > Feast unless you're tower diving.
