An Acquired Taste

P

Tongue Lash

Q

Tahm Kench sends his tongue out in a straight line to damage and slow the first enemy it hits. If the enemy has three stacks of his passive debuff, it will be stunned.

Devour

W

Kench swallows his target whole damaging them for a percentag of their maximum health. Minions and monsters that have been devoured can be spit out as a skill shot to deal damage upon impact. This can also be used on allies to shield them from damage.

Thick Skin

E

The Kench is the thickest of the thickest allowing him to passively turn all incoming damage in gray health. After a short period, the gray health decays healing him for a percentage of it. This ability can be activated to turn all his gray health into a protective shield.

Quick tips to play Tahm Kench

Take a trip down bot lane after level 6 with your

R and bring along your Jungler for a 4v2 bottom lane fight. Take objectives afterwards.

Activate your Grey Health

E 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

R to get to your team if needed.
