Cho'gath, The Terror of the Void is a Melee Tank who focuses on interrupting enemies while providing high true damage burst with his ultimate Feast. Due to Feast giving him a larger then normal health pool Cho'gath is naturally tanky, this coupled with the CC he is given gives him very good ability to peel enemies off his teammates, as well as catch out high priority targets. Cho'gath can be found either in the jungle due his ability to clear quickly and have exceptional ganks, or solo top where he can stay at decent health and mana levels due to passive allowing him to safely farm minions so he can become an unkillable tank later.

Description

Lore: There is a place between dimensions, between worlds. To some it is known as the Outside, to others it is the Unknown. To those that truly know, however, it is called the Void. Despite its name, the Void is not an empty place, but rather the home of unspeakable things - horrors not meant for minds of men. Cho'Gath is a creature born of the Void, a thing whose true nature is so awful most will not speak its name. Its fellows have been poking at the walls that divide dimensions for a crack, a way into Runeterra, where they can visit their own personal paradise of horror upon the world. They are called the Voidborn, creatures so ancient and terrible that they have been removed from history altogether. It is rumored that the Voidborn command vast armies of unspeakable creatures on other worlds, that they were once driven from Runeterra by powerful magic lost to antiquity.

If such tales are true, then the rumors that follow must be equally true - that one day, the Voidborn will return. Even now, something dark stirs in Icathia. Cho'Gath, an alien creature of malice and violence, causes all but the most stalwart to cringe in fear. Cho'Gath even appears to feed on its predations, growing and swelling as it gorges itself. Worse yet, the creature is intelligent, perhaps greatly so, hinting at the sentient horror of the Void.

“Your souls will feed the Void!”

Patch History

Patch Notes 7.4

Feast can stack infinitely against champions and epic monsters, and stacks no longer fall off on death. Feast’s ability power ratio down; bonus health ratio added.
Quote.png Cho’Gath’s been pretty weak for a while now: his last visit to the patch notes back in 6.20 made Feral Scream a fairer ability to play against, but ended up weakening Cho by removing some reliability from his kit. We’re updating Feast to boost the cool aspects of Cho’Gath’s colossal, slobbering Void monster fantasy while removing the frustration of losing stacks when killed (it was a pretty terrible experience to reverse-snowball after a death). This makes Cho less of a gamble, while making tank builds feel like a good choice. Unquote.png
  • UPDATED Feast.jpg R - Feast
    Changes to the rules around Feast stacks.
    • FOOD MEMORY: Cho’Gath no longer loses Feast stacks on death
    • FEED THE VOID: Feast can now stack infinitely (only five stacks can be gained from minions and non-epic monsters, though they don’t have to be the first five)
    • NOT THAT FILLING:Feast no longer heals Cho’Gath when it kills a unit at max stacks (nomming a sixth minion or non-epic monster doesn’t do anything beyond damage)
    • INDISCRIMINATE DIGESTION:Feast no longer grants two stacks on champion kill or half mana and cooldown refund on minion kill
    • FOOD CRITIC: Feast’s tooltip on the buff bar now tracks what Cho’s eaten
    All the other stuff.
    • RATIO: 0.7 ability power ⇒ 0.5 ability power and 10% bonus health
    • BONUS HEALTH PER STACK: 100/140/180 ⇒ 80/110/140
    • BONUS HEALTH AT 6 STACKS: 600/840/1080 ⇒ 480/660/840
    • MAXIMUM ATTACK RANGE BONUS: +50 (175 attack range) ⇒ +75 (200 attack range)
    • LET’S NOT GO CRAZY HERE: Cho’Gath reaches his maximum size (and bonus attack range) at 10 stacks

Patch Notes 6.20

W modernization.
Quote.png We’ve been on a slow crusade to fix League’s cone spells, and this patch we arrive at Cho’Gath. Up until now, Cho’Gath’s Feral Scream decided who to hit based on when W was pressed - not when Feral Scream actually fired. Fixing this bug means opponents can now Flash, dash, or blink away from Feral Scream, which is a pretty sizable hit to its reliability. Our goal isn’t to make Cho’Gath weaker, so we’re giving him more opportunities to yell at people, plus a little more range to offset the “walking away in a straight line” case. That said, more screams = more silence, so we’re giving Cho’s enemies their speaking rights back a bit sooner. Unquote.png
  • FeralScream.jpg W - Feral Scream
    • COOLDOWN: 13 seconds ⇒ 13/12/11/10/9 seconds
    • RANGE: 585 ⇒ 650
    • SILENCE DURATION: 1.5/1.75/2/2.25/2.5 seconds ⇒ 1.5/1.625/1.75/1.875/2 seconds
    • DID YOU HEAR THIS?: Fixed a bug where units would be hit if they had escaped the area after the cast.

Patch Notes 6.6

R stacks provide more health.
Quote.png Cho’Gath isn’t far below the bar, but life’s still hard for a void dinosaur-terror with lobster claws. Cho’Gath has the power to wreck an entire time given his powerful CC… or die horribly, beginning an almost never-ending game of catchup to restore the health stacks he so desperately relies on to function. We’re easing up on the build-up (especially late-game) for a voidbeast fallen on hard times. Unquote.png
  • Feast.jpg R - Feast
    • BONUS HEALTH PER STACK: 90/120/150 ⇒ 100/140/180

Patch Notes 5.21

Feast gains more stacks on champion kills and heals when he's full.
Quote.png For dedicated Cho'Gath mains, Feast can be his highest high (nomming even the heartiest of meals) and his lowest low (endlessly playing catch-up on Feast stacks if he falls behind the curve). Adding extra bonuses to Feast's success case gives Cho bigger rewards for getting aggressive hungry, as well giving him the option to top off his already massive health pool once he's full. Unquote.png

Feast.jpg R - Feast

  • Feast Stacks on Champion Kill: 1 ⇒ 2
  • NEW Leftovers: Killing a minion or monster at max stacks will now heal Cho'Gath for 90/120/150 (doubled for enemy champions)

Patch Notes 4.21
"Life's hard for a Cho'gath. You want to eat your enemies, they don't want be eaten, and all it takes is one little death to set this poor little monster back. These changes should help Cho get back into the fight, but we also wanted to create bigger decisions between saving Feast for a kill or nommin' down on some creeps."

  • Feast.jpg R - Feast
    • "NEW" HUNGRY HUNGRY CHO'GATH: Feast now has 50% of its cooldown and mana cost refunded if it kills a minion or monster.
    • COOLDOWN: 60 seconds at all ranks ⇒ 80 seconds at all ranks

Patch Notes 4.8
Cho can eat things a little faster and from a little further away.

  • Feast.jpg R - Feast
    • Range: 150 ⇒ 175
    • Cast Time: 0.5 seconds ⇒ 0.25 seconds
