Cho, the Twilight's Hammer Chieftain, is a melee Tank hero from the Warcraft universe. Together with Gall, they are Cho'gall.[1]

Head 1 of a 2 Headed Hero, Cho controls the Body of Cho'gall.

Background[edit | edit source]

Warcraft This section concerns content exclusive to the Warcraft universe.

Powerful, dangerous, insane—many words have been used to describe the Chieftain of the Twilight's Hammer clan, and yet they still fail to truly capture Cho'gall's madness.[1]

Two personalities share the body of Cho'gall: Gall, cunning master of dark magics and forbidden incantations, and Cho, who's never met a problem he couldn’t punch really, really hard. When working together, Cho's powerful attacks and Gall's destructive spells feed into each other to make Cho'gall's enemies rue the day they crossed paths with this ogre. With Cho's brawn and Gall's dark powers, these two are ready to take the Nexus by storm... as soon as they can agree on a plan.[2]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Cho is the Tank half of the entity controlled by two players known as Cho'gall. The player in charge of Cho has the burden of controlling the entity's movement and Basic Attacks, whereas the second player, in control of Gall, acts as a "turret" that uses Abilities from Cho's physical position. Cho's strongest points are his area of effect disruption, outstanding resilience, and ability to safely position Gall, who can deal high levels of sustained damage, right into the midst of combat. Should Cho be killed, Gall will die with him, instantly yielding two kills worth of experience to opponents.

Strengths[edit | edit source]

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

  • Easily countered during drafts as Cho'Gall is particularly vulnerable to most forms of crowd control and percent-based damage sources.
  • Deaths are twice as punishing, as they mean losing two Heroes
  • Only allows a team to have 4 Heroes, reducing overall Map presence
