Ap Cho'Gath mid

aka Wizard Lizard





Best Overall Runes


Spells

Skill Priority

Best Overall Build


Intro

Hello! I am an avid ap chogath mid abuser, I play him solely mid.

I currently hold a 60% wr on Cho'Gath and I am in plat 2

I have been playing cho'gath since season 6 and have never dropped him, I even started out on AP back then too.

I have tried many AP cho'gath builds over the years and I still miss glacial glp cho, I tried magic pen cho earlier this year but found it unsatisfactory, so instead I opted in for the everfrost/demonic ap build.

I have no experience writing builds, but I really love ap cho'gath and don't see any other build on here for cho'gath so I gave it a shot.

Runes

Primary Runes:

  • Arcane comet is my usual go-to since its good at poking and all inning. Great against ranged squishys.

  • Some ap chogath players will go HoB, but personally I dislike it. Great against more tanky champions.



Secondary Runes:

  • Manaflow for extra mana early on



  • Transendence for the extra ability haste. after Q cd buffs, it can go down to a insanely low cd



  • Water walking is for roaming and skirmishes in river with jg, I mainly go this since its so helpful for river fights, if you don't plan on roaming go scorch for poke or gathering storm for a better late game



  • Cheap shot racks up damage pretty fast so I prefer going it, Taste of blood is fine if you need extra sustain in the lane

  • I love ultimate hunter for the low chomp cd, some will go ingenious for the low Everfrost cd or relentless for better roaming and positioning

  • Go two adaptive damage, and armor or MR based on matchup



  • My main runes
  • HoB




Summoner Spells

I mostly run ignite/flash, some will go tp in tougher lanes, but I usually always go ignite.

  • Summs

Skill Path

For melee matchups I like to start E so I can get easier mana flow stacks early on. and since E most likely wont reach in a ranged, I will start Q.

  • Vs. Ranged

Item Builds

Always build everfrost and demonic, if an enemy hurts a little then I build zhonyas or banshees, sometimes both. If I am doing bad then ill replace sorc shoes for plated or mercs and go tank after demonic. Otherwise I will go cosmic into other ap items, like morellos if I need anti-heal or void staff for magic pen.

  • Main set

Combos

  • Q - EF - W - R is my go to, this will kill most squishy to medium health champs when ahead, start with EF if you think you need it since it is easier to hit than Q, but has a shorter range, the W is to silence people so they don't flash or dash away when walking up to chomp



  • If against a tanky champion I will usually Q poke down until I feel like the above combo will kill, for a begginer this would be hard to judge so

Tips

  • Every person mostly has a specific way they will dodge a Cho'gath Q, some will walk down more than up, and vice versa, I try to read this and it make it easier to predict were someone will walk, always keep a bit of the Q on them to actually make them move.

  • An easy way to hit a Q in lane is when the enemy goes for cs, when they start the animation, or when you think they'll cats an ability to cs, Q under them and it almost guarantees easy poke or all-in.

  • Dont undersetimate the W, the silence lasts forever when ranked up and has a wide AOE, can be the key to winning a team fight.

  • Roam Roam Roam Roam, this is why i take water walking, chogath is great at CCing people that are running away or engaging so it makes ganking other lanes or helping out the jg in river fights incredibly easy, this also helps if the lane is a tough matchup so you can get kills elsewhere.

Matchups

I will most likely ban Katarina or Viktor, Katarina is a pain to hit and Viktor uber scales hard right now.

Most tough matchups will be against hyper mobile champions like katarina, fizz, qiyana.

Easy matchups are mostly against mages, with the exception of viktor.

Against mobile champions try to silence with W
