Guide to Countering Xayah as Cho'Gath

Tips for Playing as Cho'Gath against Xayah

If you're having difficulty feasting upon champions, try eating minions until you're larger.

Try to line up your attacks with Vorpal Spikes so that they kill minions and harass enemy champions at the same time.

Using Rupture on creeps in combination with Carnivore is a good way to gain Health and Mana.

Advice to Win Against Xayah

Xayah's Bladecaller will only root targets hit by 3 or more returning Feathers.

Make sure you are ready when you go for the kill. Untargetability from Featherstorm can quickly turn an ambush in Xayah's favor.
