When I go AP mid Cho I use:

Merc Treads
Frozen Heart
Rabadon's Deathcap
Abyssal Scepter
Rylai's Scepter/Warmog's Armor
Rod of Ages

I like going

Early Chalice (for maximum W spam)
Mercs
Rylai's/Aegis (building one before the other depending on matchup)
Rylai's/Aegis
Warmog's or Randuin's (depending on enemy comp)
Liandry's
Finish Athene's/Bulwark

That's an amazing amount of health (with full stacks), AP, resistance, and disruption (Rylai's). You cannot be bullied once you get the Chalice and boots- that is, of course, unless the enemy decides to go MPen first. Even then, you have the bulk to trade and push.

um....

what?

on topic, is Liandry's not a great item since he is mostly AoE and the effectiveness is reduced? I see a lot of people building rylais. Is this to add a slow to his E for teamfights?

I've also heard people denouncing RoA as a noob item. Is that just elitists? It seems....decent, but it sounds to me like warmogs might be better

Liandry's is fine. Remember that his Q will proc the effect before Rylai's, and that Feral Scream will apply it (without the bonus) at any time. It's solid damage, but because of the amount of overall health and AP it gives, it's further down my priority list. There are some games in which I forego it entirely for something more tanky, like Banshee's. Rylai's is great because it gives things that Cho wants in health, AP, and that delicious slow effect. It's just a fantastic item, and Cho abuses it so well.

RoA is okay on Cho, but you're better off just getting Warmog's, Randuin's, or Banshee's.

Rush ROA if they let you free farm/you get first blood

I prefer to rush Rylais so I can roam and be a pain in the ass to people

Build whatever afterwards. You're unkillable at this point.
