Quick tips to play Tahm Kench

Take a trip down bot lane after level 6 with your TahmKenchNewR and bring along your Jungler for a 4v2 bottom lane fight. Take objectives afterwards.
Activate your Grey Health TahmKenchE during the skirmish with the enemy so they have to go through your health bar twice. Don’t use it to late as the enemy will just back off.
When no team fights are occuring, look to split push and apply pressure to side lanes or Towers. Use your TahmKenchNewR to get to your team if needed.
