Quick tips to play Tahm Kench

Focus on surviving the laning phase and staying alive. Do not over extend or position to far forward as you will become an easy gank target.

Prioritise using your

W to keep your ADC or Mid laner alive throughout the team fight. If they die, the fights over for you.

Set up an ambush whenever a major neutral objective is coming up and try to kill the enemy before doing it. Tahm is difficult to escape from, so stick to them once you find an enemy.
