Tahm Kench Matchups Overview

Tahm Kench General information

Tahm Kench tips and tricks

Activate your 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.

If your carries are strong, default to using your Ultimate DevourR to peel and protect them. Keeping them alive in a late-game fight is very important if they’re going to carry.

By keeping the wave closer to your side of the map in the early game, you will be able to farm easily and avoid dying to ganks.
