General information

Tahm Kench Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

An Acquired Taste

TahmKench_P
P

Tahm Kench's auto-attack deal bonus magic damage. Against enemy champion, these attacks also apply An Acquired Taste stack for 5 seconds. This stacks up to 3 times. His Q and W gain additional effect against enemies with 3 stacks.

Tongue Lash

TahmKenchQ
Q

Lashes his tongue in the target direction, dealing magic damage to the first enemy hit and slowing them for 3 seconds. If the target has 3 stacks of An Acquired Taste, the target will also be stunned for 2 seconds and the stacks will be consumed.

Devour

TahmKenchW
W

Swallows an enemy minion, non-epic monster, or allied champion for up to 4 seconds. These units are untargetable and cannot perform any actions. If the target is an enemy, they are instantly stunned and suppressed. If an enemy champion has 3 stacks of An Acquired Taste, Tahm Kench can swallow them for up to 2 seconds. He is slowed for 95% for the duration and can't cast movement spells when he swallows an enemy champion. On recasting this ability, Tahm Kench regurgitates the swallowed target. Swallowed enemies take magic damage as well.

Thick Skin

TahmKenchE
E

Passive: Tahm Kench stores a percentage of the damage he takes as Grey Health on his health bar, up to a maximum of 100% of his missing health. After taking no damage for 2.5 seconds, Tahm Kench rapidly heals for a percent of his grey health over time. Active: Tahm Kench converts his current Grey Health into a shield that lasts for 2 seconds.

Abyssal Voyage

TahmKenchNewR
R

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.
