Cho is a Melee Warriorhero from the Warcraft universe, and a part of Cho'gall. This character is unique in that one player controls Cho, and the other Gall.
Cho'gall became the Chieftain of an orc clan after the previous one was executed for disobeying the Shadow Council. Cho'gall renamed the clan as the Twilight's Hammer, while all records of both the clan's old name and the chieftain's one were destroyed.
Cho is the Warrior part of the Cho'gall. The player who controls Cho is responsible for the Hero's movement and Basic Attacks, while the one controlling Gall is in charge of using only Ranged Basic Abilities. Therefore, the two players must have synergy and communication to syncronize their abilities to maximize Cho'gall's potential.
Overall, Cho'gall has a very niche role that requires planning and adaptation from the rest of the team composition, as two players controlling one Hero essentially means one less Hero in lanes. On the other hand, Cho'gall is perfectly capable of solo laning given his wide range of abilities and remarkable solo sustain.
Highest base health and regen per second in the game.
Does not have mana.
Strong teamfight presence.
Outstanding duelist and lane bully.
Can easily solo Mercenary and Boss Camps.
Both Cho and Gall have their own Heroic Abilities, which can hugely impact teamfights.
Ogre Hide provides a reliable passive damage reduction.
Surging Fist is a fantastic initiation tool, as well being useful for disengaging from combat.
Activate to begin charging Surging Fist. Activate again to dash forward, knocking aside enemies and dealing 47.84 (+4% per level) damage. The dash range increases by up to 250%, depending on how long it is charged.
Bruiser Build: focused on providing Cho with a healthy blend of survivability and damage, allowing him to deal surprisingly high basic attack damage, which, combined with Gall's abilities, makes him a very potent duelist capable of dealing with nearly any kind of opponent. This build is best when used with Gall's Shadowflame Build.
Upheaval Build: focused on Cho's teamfight ability with Upheaval, for a large displacement. This build is best used when Gall picks Twisting Nether, as both Heroics have fantastic synergy.
Make sure to always pay attention to Cho'gall's current trait, as his damage output and survability is great enhanced/decreased depending on which one is active.
Aside from the glowing icon in the action bar, a small glyph appears directly below Cho'gall as a visual indicator for each trait: Ogre Hide appears as orange, and Ogre Rage as purple.
Although Cho'gall can withstand large deals of damage due his naturally high health and self-sustain, avoid diving too deep against multiple enemies, as crowd controls such as stuns can make focused fire very effective against him.
In addition, Heroes that can deal percentage damage, such as Malthael and Tychus, pose a high threat to Cho'gall.
Be careful when using Surging Fist against opponents with abilities that can stun, as it can be interrupted.
Try hitting as many enemies as possible with Consuming Blaze, to maximize its healing effects.
Rune Bomb is best when used on close range, as it travels very slowly. Make sure that Gall will detonate it against the optimal target(s).
Make sure to communicate Gall preemptively when about to use Upheaval, so he can time his Twisting Nether for massive damage.
