How to play

  1. You rush Heartsteel #1 unless it is going to be hard to proc it - they are all ranged and just poke you. Then you start slow with Guardian's Horn.
  2. After Heartsteel, you can rush Titanic Hydra (more fun, damage and some survi) AND/OR Sundered Sky or just go full tank - depending on if you are behind and if your team needs more damage.
  3. Sundered Sky is very good damage item for this build. It scales off your HP (so Grasp, Heartsteel, Overgrowth). It gives damage and pretty good sustain in fights. Remember to switch targets to maximize the effect!
  4. This is auto attack oriented Cho'Gath build, so do it! Especially if running with Titanic Hydra and Sundered Sky as well.
  5. Guardian's Horn is a surprisingly good item for its price. You can keep it for a very long time (or even have it as 6th item).
  6. Triumph is better (heal + gold), but if you want to have easier time with your mana, go Presence of the Mind.
  7. You need to adapt your items to the game. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  8. Remember to consume your Heartsteel procs!
  9. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. Keep W for priority targets. Enemy team has champions that dive and go in? Keep W for them.
  2. You can be a great peeler if needed, thanks to Q + W + R.
  3. Universal skill order for Cho'Gath: max Q for push/poke/healing, max W for fights, max E versus lots of melee champs in an enemy team.
  4. Do not wait for 'special moment' to use your R early on. It is OK to just stack it on minions to get more survivability.
  5. If you are not playing a tank or support version, consider not eating siege minions - it is more gold for your carries, and they need gold more than you!
Riot
  1. Try to line up your attacks with Vorpal Spikes so that they kill minions and harass enemy champions at the same time.
  2. If you're having difficulty feasting upon champions, try eating minions until you're larger.
  3. Using Rupture on creeps in combination with Carnivore is a good way to gain Health and Mana.
