Swallows an enemy minion, non-epic monster, or allied champion for up to 4 seconds. These units are untargetable and cannot perform any actions.

Abyssal Voyage
Abyssal VoyageR
Cooldown: 140 / 130 / 120 secondsCost: 100 manaRange: 2500/5500/8500

Channels up to 6 seconds, highlighting the destination on the map and opening his maw to allow one of his allies to come along with him. It can be recast after a brief duration and the channel automatically ends if someone climbs into his maw. After a short duration, Tahm Kench blinks him and his ally to the targeted location.

Quick tips to play Tahm Kench

Activate your Grey Health Thick SkinE during the skirmish with the enemy so they have to go through your health bar twice. Activate it before the enemy disengages from the fight.

When no team fights are occurring, look to split push and apply pressure to side lanes or Towers. Use your Ultimate Abyssal VoyageR to get to your team if needed.

In team fights, prioritise using your Devour DevourW to save the life of your ADC or Mid laner. Keeping them alive will make winning the fight much easier.
