Kog' Maw, viable or not?

Yes and no. He has a very strong Kit. Armor/MR Reduction with his Q.

Range and % Dmg (Magic) with his W

Slow with his E

Sight (Not Revealing Invisible Targets) on Targets with his R on Contact with all who get hit by it.

 

If you build Botrk, Tri, IE on him, his Dmg is pretty nice. W Maxed out, with Botrk is 16% Mixed Dmg based on their current HP. So that alone is pretty nice, then mix IE/Tri which gives him a decent amount of Dmg plus the Proc on Tri, along with the 250% Crit from IE helps a whole lot. The rest of the items are completely up to you. Obviously boots are Grieves. But the last 2 Items are really up in the Air. You could build BT/Sash, or maybe Sash/GA or w.e. You can experiment with some different builds on him, but one that I've found that's pretty nice is:

Botrk - Tri - IE - Boots - Scimitar - Then probably a LW or PD. Depending, if they are building full tank or not. You could also go for a Soul Reaver, or Static, but it's really situational.

 

- Just my personal opinion, since I've been playing Kog a lot lately :3

Btw, Depending on who you go agenst in Lane (Most times it will be someone with more Range, or high poke.) you want to take W to get that Early Range in, so you can either Farm or poke in return to them. Otherwise Q for faster Attks, but I personally just like starting with W unless we invade. Q is nice for Armor/MR Shred, but does nothing to really help laning phase, while W gives more DMG done to minions and enemy champions (which helps) and allows more Range to use, (Which gets higher for each point in the ability.) So yeah, you may want to check him out :3

Kog'maw sees common use in the OGN now, take that as you will.

Kog skilll path is R>W>E>Q. The slow and minor poke from E help a lot in lane(learned it from WildPete's stream). As far as items go, BOTK-Shiv/PD-Greaves- IE-LW-xxx whatever you want after for either defence or offence. Now about not getting a TF on him, i honesly don't proc it enough because i'm still getting better with him that's why i don't get it. However after 6 although it would cost a small fortune in mana to proc ever 2 seconds it would be very useful.
