Playing against Tahm Kench
Key Insights
He's very strong at stopping all-ins with
W
. But he can't help his ADC (or himself) from getting poked! Poke mages beat him.
Q
will stun if he has 3 stacks of passive
P
on you.
Chaining hard CC correctly when focusing him down is key. This way he can't activate his
E
, which grants a shield based on Grey Health.
W
does a decent damage since it's based on max HP. Don't get eaten!
He's grounded and slowed by 95% for the duration if he eats an allied or enemy champion with
W
.
Power Spike
Strong lvl 1 for all-ining. Lvl 2 and lvl 3 are pretty good too (can eat + more tankiness). Doesn't really spike much after that.
Levels 6, 11 and 16 are huge power spikes for him. Despite being low range in the first rank, R is commonly used for lane ganks so be aware of overextending. At lvl 16 it covers almost half of the map, which can easily catch any split pusher out of position.
Vulnerable
He does very poorly against poke mages in lane, as he can't do much in retaliation and
E
passive doesn't heal enough.
His all-in is fairly telegraphed. If he misses
Q
, he can't close the distance. So dodge that and it's easy to kite him.
