Eccentricks says “Do I need to talk about Tahm? He is never played as Support anymore, and when he is, he is bad. He gets better in higher ELO's though, but you wont have to worry about that for a while unless you are really good at Twitch now (which I hope you will be after reading this ;) ). ”

Mr. Nyahr says “My personal least favorite champion in the game to play against. He's tanky, he can save his ADC, and God help you if you get swallowed. Respect his poke and CC and try to poke from a distance.”

Eucalyptus says “As annoying as he is to play against, you make him fairly useless. He can't properly abuse you without eating a full combo. The Singed law applies here. He steps up to chase? Then he fucking dies. He stays away? Then he better hope his ADC scales harder (Hint... they probably don't).”

Fruxo says “Don't take long trades as Tahm usually wins those very often. He can swallow you in order to position you incorrectly for both ganks and to setup kills, and so being near him is not a wise choice, instead poke him down from far away. His Shield can also be pretty annoying but if you play it right it shouldn't be much of a problem.”

Tips Against Tahm Kench in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Rhoku says “TL;DR - CHEESE MATCHUP. JUST DON’T GET CHEESED AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. DODGE HIS Q. POKE HIM DOWN WITH Q FROM BEHIND YOUR MINIONS SO HE CAN’T FIGHT BACK. CONQUEROR IS VERY GOOD INTO HIM. GRASP IS ALSO GOOD. CLEAVER IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING. KITE KITE KITE! DON’T EVER FIGHT HIM STRAIGHT UP AND TRADE AAS WITH HIM. HE CAN KEEP YOU STUNLOCKED UNTIL HE END OF TIME. Tahm Kench top is a rare pick nowadays but when he was meta, he used to be a crazy strong pick. He is annoying because you have to destroy his health bar twice. But on the bright side, if he loses lane to you you can just dumpster him over and over again. The trick is to be careful when he just walks at you. Don’t get his by his Tongue, as the slow can sometimes be a death sentence. Poke him down with your Q as much as possible while staying behind minions so he can’t retaliate. Don’t sit next to him and get into an AA match with him as he WILL win. If he gets too tanky to kill, Cleaver will be a good buy into him, ESPECIALLY with the removed true damage of Conqueror. On the bright side though, the Conqueror healing allows you to stay in fight longer vs him…until he buys Bramble Vest. You beat him Level 6 with your ultimate if you dodge his abilities. AND he is bad vs ganks. ”

Ayanleh says “Morde is actually one of the few champions that can beat tahm kench in a 1v1. Early game sucks, but try to play safe in laning phase and scale up.”

qasddsa says “Get an early Blade of the Ruined King, dodge his tongue, and stay out of melee range. Don't get greedy if you start to get low since he can easily turn on you with gray health. In lane, harass him as much as you can without being attacked or tongued.”
Pathetic Singed says “Tahm will slap you silly and he's too tanky for you to do anything about it. Singed really really sucks into this frog.”

Drake6401 says “This guy needs more respect than expected. Be very vigilant of the stacks he has on you. I made this mistake and died in lane to him once. Lesson learned. If he has a stack on you, don't engage. Break the fight as soon as you get your damage. He WILL win extended trades with you early on. Your Empowered W breaks his shield so keep that in mind, especially when going for a killing fight. He will most certainly try to hold onto it so only use W when it can kill him or he used his shield.”
Complete Guide to Renekton by Drake6401 | Renekton Player
Sovereign Kitten says “You can use minions to body block his (Q), along with his (W) as if he gets 3 stacks he can eat you. Just don't stand too close to your minions as the AoE is rather large when he spits the minion back out with his (W). Don't let him fully stack on you, because his (Q) will stun you at full stacks allowing him to eat you or catch you out in the middle of a gank or team fight. If you just so happen to have no minions around to block his (Q), you need to learn how to side step and predict or bait it out/run away and (Q) his attempts to stack and eat you. He is very tanky and normally goes with Wit's End to deal damage. ”

LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Kench is similar to Mundo in that you have to play around your minion wave to be able to deal with him. His Q does a lot of damage and the slow is obnoxious. Stand in or behind minions to avoid it and poke him occasionally. You probably won't be able to solokill him, but he's not difficult to gank regardless. If you beat him early he'll be irrelevant late. Assassin Thresh hard loses to Tahm Kench. Always go tanky with CDR.”

Raen says “Tough opponent, he will outdamage you at early. After 1/2 items you should win skirmishes. He will stack a lot of hp so Botrk against him will be good choice. Don't let him to make 3 stack at you cuz Devour deals huge dmg.”
RTO says “Avoid trading pre 6. Once you are 6, you have a little bit of kill pressure. ”

Anoying bro5 says “Don't fight him early game. This is not an enjoyable lane. Dodge his Q. Look to parry the final passive Q or W that he uses. This can be tricky but its the only real use of you parry in this lane. You win once you hit 6 and have tiamat. DO NOT DIE PRE 6. ”

LoLReal says “Pretty free lane. Stand in minions and dodge Q and we win trades hard. Post 6 makes the lane even easier.”
LoLReal says “Fairly easy tank match up. This champ is terrible now and you probably won't see him played top, or if at all. Stand in minions to avoid his Q and out trade him. ”
Ravenborne says “Very rare matchup nowadays. Just do not get stunlocked and go BC into this matchup. He will try to hug you so just E to get some distance for your Q or just run away. Also stand behind minions so he can not land his Q on you”

RTO says “Tahm is very strong at the moment, he outtrades you at level one, zones you, kills you. Generally can't kill you post level 6. Slow him so he can't eat you.”

Phrxshn says “Prevent yourself from getting 3 stacks of An Acquired Taste or his Tongue Lash(Q) and Devour(W) will gain enhanced effects. Avoid making long trades with Tahm Kench. Stop trading with Tahm Kench if he activates Thick Skin(E). Dodge his Tongue Lash (Q). (Recommended Items: Blade of the Ruined King, Mercury's Treads) (Outscaling Edge: Warwick) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Primal Howl and Infinite Duress prevents and stops from Abyssal Voyage(R) being cast) (Auto attack stops Abyssal Voyage before casting animation)”

ERNESTSAURUS says “FLEET FOOTWORK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Tahm Kench top used to be a thing if I'm not wrong last season, where he can obliterate all other toplaners and there was close to no counter play to him (I remember perma banning him), but he got severly nerfed and he's not really played toplane anymore except of some One Tricks or Auto Filled Supports. As for laning Phase just make sure yo farm behind minons to dodge his Q poke and try to not get him to Devour you since he will just Regurgitate you away from your tower and stack his Passive on you, Respect his damage since its a lot for being able to play as a Top and Sup. Similar to Pantheon or Rengar, once they will hit 6 and you played passive all lane they will look to Roam so make sure you have vision on River and ping a lot to your team whenever he's not in lane. Once you get lvl 6 and Sheen spike you can look to do trades against him, usually short ones never work since he has his E but the way to beat it is to do consistant short trades, usually look to alternate between a normal autoattack, Q and E to prevent him of healing himself to the point he is low enough Nasus can Flash + Q kill him or he has to back off, just be careful if you try to do this really hard while close to his torret, he can Devour and Regurgitate into his tower but usually Nasus wins the All Ins. Later on to the game his teamfight isn't the best but he does have really good peeling for his ADC or Backline so keep that in mind, Splitting against him is the key, since he doesn't have enough damage to take Nasus down and even if he pokes you to chunk you to half HP, just Lifesteal with Legend Bloodline + Nasus Passive back to full and you should be fine, you outscale him quite hard.”

Bombabo says “Tahm is nowhere near as much of a threat as he used to be since he lost a lot of damage from his passive as well as the ability to chain stun you into swallowing you. He's still an annoying tanky bastard that can hold his own against you, but he isn't a free win anymore. ”

ForgottenProject says “48 Armor at Lv1? Q-Spam that has a weirdly large hitbox? Takes no Damage because Conqueror is Nerfed as hell? I wonder what the Problem is. [1]Don't bother fighting him early you will not win. Only Q-Poke Front Vitals. [2]He has a Supporting Ultimate so you start beating him once you Hit Level 6. [3]Parry the Q that will stun you when you're at full stack of his Passive OR his Devour.”

Womsky says “Scaling runes, ignite and doran's sheild, oh well! He was a juggernut and a states ball before they decided to kill his ass, used to be a nightmare matchup, but now its just cool and you scales way harder than him, just take harash trades with him level 1 and 2 before he gets his E "grey health" so you can set him up for a hard laning phase, just dont let him AA you 3 times cause it could go pretty bad if he do so, if you feel you cant kill him just scale and kill him later, he is not a big threat, just a cheese match up, or troll honestly.”

Sub Runes: CDR, Damage, Armor Summoners: Teleport Tahm Kench...the attack speed building tank. This is a very rough lane for Riven. Especially if he manages to eat you. Stay behind minions and freeze wave under tower. Nothing much you can do without jungler help. ”
Generic Riven Guide by Chili Dog | Riven Player
AWierdShoe says “Look to short trade often with either a couple of empowered Q's or just a single grasp auto. Try to do this while standing behind one of your minions to deny him from using his Q you. If it ever seems like you will get 3 stacks onto you, taunt away before it happens. Only use your taunt aggressively if you have a big HP lead already and know he cant turn on you and kill you with one combo. ”
Urgotem says “Refer to Match Up Section”
Fiora Pogjet says “Just a busted champion. Much armor and a Q spam in the earlygame. You won't win trade just go for front vitles. You can try to prarry his 3rd passive hit with q or if he tries to eat you. Lvl 6 u will beat him cause your ult does more.”

EntxRecoil says “Fleet Footwork Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Dorans shield start. Do not look for fights or trades with tahm kench. Make sure that when he applies a stack on you that you let it fall off before walking in his range again. The only trade you should take with tahm kench is an auto attack + spin out when you are going for a minion to farm. Try to let tahm kench push you in always, if the wave is starting to push towards him that is bad. He can all in you very well and he wins short trades and extended trades. Only chance you have of beating him is with jungle ganks or if he runs out of mana. If you can, swap with your mid laner (if your mid laner can handle tahm kench) as you will most likely have an easier time against any other opponent than tahm kench. You do not outscale tahm kench in the 1v1, but you do outscale him in team fights. Tahm kench does not have good scaling in a fight where you can destroy squishies. When splitting go opposite side of the map where tahm kench is and use your mobility to outrotate him as much as possible. UPDATE FOR 9.14, Tahm kench got SIGNIFICANT nerfs and is no longer a hard matchup, but still can be annoying to deal with.”

Dantheman81 says “This matchup is not very hard as much as it is frustrating. A good Tahm Kench is nearly unkillable and his tankiness only grows as the game progresses.

WayOfTheTempesst says “Haven't vsed this champion in a very long time so this rating might be outdated but from what I remember, he has massive tankiness and base damage. Take short trades against him and constantly poke him and weave through the wave. Windwall his Q to deny damage when going on him and denying the stun. When going for an all in, do not ult him if he pops his shield, instead wait for it to time out and go back onto him to finish him off. Frozen Mallet 3rd is really good into Tahm to easily Kite him and not be able to stick to you at all.”

Hamstertamer says “Borderline unplayable early game. TK makes melees cry, outtrades them, zones them, and eats them. But then, they just picked TK toplane, so it's kind of a "win lane lose game" pick. Tough it up, only thing he can do is be annoying, he can't kill you unless you mess up hard. Short trades are good so take them, just walk away immediately and disengage with W if needed so he'll never stack his passive. An early MR item is a must.”

Hugys says “Tahm can be quite the problem to deal with due to his passive. "An Acquired Taste" which after hitting a target and stacking up to 3 times, will allow him to swallow you. You have to understand that he can also gain additional effects from these 3 stacks with his other abilities. Allowing him to stun and kite you down with very little effort. I personally recommend building PTA allowing you to deal with his tank side and also the ability to out kite him with ghost. He becomes a real threat late in the game due to his tank-on-hit nature with wit's end. Remember he is full AP do not build armor against him, that would be a mistake, since all of his abilities deal %health as AP. You can take other runes, but you really should take it into consideration of whether you want to shut him out of the early and mid game, or deal with him never an hope your team can take him out. Use minions to block his tongue lash, never stay near him when he paths towards you, back off because he will win these trades if you let him touch you.”

Poppu says “Tahm is a good tank but usually tends to build HP items. If you build Merc Treads and Sunfire, you can sustain a bit more if you're not hit with his abilities. Good suggestion is to try to out trade him with procs of Grasp and Q, E him whenever you get the chance to pin him, and save W to retreat.”

Vodka4Gaben says “Incredibly broken, don't try to fight him without ALL you abilties, his shield is very powerful and blocks alot of your 5 stack/bleed. Try to engage once you've poked him for a bit.”

Petethebossch says “Never fight him. He can 100-0 you if you are not ready with his w. Get help from the jungle to make him useless. Once he can't 1v1 you he is just a a support. Wait until triforce if you don't get jungle help. Don't go for cs he is near unless under tower. Watch his shield as well.”

Devitt45 says “Try to farm until you get Black Cleaver, and try to dodge his Q ( the one where he sends his tongue out far) and W as you get hit a third time so you take less damage from his eat and/or stunned from his Q.”

BrvndonLmao says “I believe Tahm Kench to be a bit of a problem for Riven, basically you have to go for very small trades and play lane passive, you wont really win all in's that often, ask for jungle help in lane. He's a very big threat due to his shield and sustain in fighting and in lane.”

LighterDay says “Tahm thrives a lot in solo fights. His abilities can keep Mordekaiser at bay since they have some form of CC to them. Tahm's tankiness also makes it impossible even do damage since his shield scales with any champion damage he takes, so soloing him will only make his shield grow.”

ImpossibleLogic says “I don't understand how this thing works. Tahm has a global ultimate so he can easily appear behind. While slow, he easily does the same to you and has greater poking range. He is pretty much unstoppable as he can slow, stunt, and pull you away from turret or from your kit.”

Brentard says “You'll have to fight this guy in 2 stages; 1 to get his health low, then again to actually kill him due to his shielding mechanic. try not to go toe to toe his autos do more damage, and then its difficult to run away. Q his Q and W when he is going to eat you/stun. ”
Speedy Von Garen (Carry build) by Brentard | Garen Player
DrMoneybags says “Kench is a lot like Darius, he will always win extended trades. Just take short trades and prevent him from getting his stacks onto you. He has a lot of %HP damage, which easily counters kled's passive. Taking conqueror in this matchup will help against his tankiness and in extended trades. Bait out his W shield before using most of your damage. Walk around your minions to avoid his Q. Ping MIAs to keep him from roaming, and ask for jungler help early on.”
Arcthunder says “Kench is very dangerous if you don't tread carefully. Two-Coats will look for a Devour on you if he lands his Q, and his long trades are unrivaled. Whittle him down instead until you can all in.”
Kennen The Great says “He is Strong Tank, Better Ban Him!”

E61K says “Start Doran's Blade and go for Conqueror. Believe it or not but this fat catfish counters you. Generally you won't lane against him but if you do keep in mind that Top Kench has one of the strongest laning Phases out of all champions. His post level 3 all-in is more powerful than yours so respect it. At 6 it isn't won either since he effectively has 2 health bars and Darius hates a lot of health. If he snowballs on you you're gonna get destroyed in lane. In this lane you either just accept the fact that you can't fight him early and farm until you have your core or you dodge his Q's by side-stepping them or fighting in your minion wave. Tahm might be a beast in lane but he scales like garbage and he has no real waveclear. He can also save teammates from your R if he is quick enough. This is one of the very few matchups where I would think about building BORK at some point. Luckily for you almost nobody plays Tahm Top because, aside from a few very good matchups for him, it's troll.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: High base damage early, Great Sustain. Inherently tanky. Instant CC on devour, Grey Health + Shield. Weaknesses: Out-scaled, Utility ultimate, Low mobility. He is a matchup that is designed to beat you in lane. You will have a very difficult time winning any extended trades against him early because of his passive and grey health. You do not want to be in a position where he can get multiple passive stacks on you. Never let him get you to 3 passive stacks unless you are committed to an All-in. There is no point in trying to riposte his Devour once you are at full passive stacks because it is extremely difficult to do so. It would be more beneficial to Riposte one of his auto attacks when you are at 1 or 0 stacks so that the attack speed slow makes it that much more difficult for him to stack his passive in the first place. Primarily Q poke for vitals and focus on farming early so once you hit your one to two item power-spike you can split-push against him easily.”

Mouadyam says “surprisingly annoying matchup, especially early on, avoid him until you have your R and, for the love of god, dont ult him while he has his shield on (did it too many times). careful when he has full stacks on you as his W base damage is fairly high.”
Demon Lord AC0 says “As a Tahm Kench main, I know this guy very well... You can Windwall his Q, and though it has a very low CD, It's best to do so once he gets 3 stacks, since you'll block a stun... He will probably eat you after that too. You'd better not trade against him until mid-game. Best chance is to rush BORK, Merc Treads and start Doran's Blade. ”

Tips Against Tahm Kench in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Glasletter says “Tahm is not a threat in the top lane, but as a support it's extremely annoying to have him eat the carry you were trying to burst, and even a Youmuu's active can barely keep up.”
SELORONIOS says “A good Tahm Kench sup will make it so hard for you to kill his adc. Sometimes it's better to focus on him instead of adc if you can't kill the adc fast enough. But he's not as threatful as lulu or Zilean”

MrBoronALT says “Not only is Tahm basically impossible to kill he also makes any nearby ally impossible to kill. Recipe for disaster. Avoid picking into him, but if you have no choice, kill his teammates when he's not nearby. He has to be right next to his ally in order to save them. If you gank his lane you probably just have to focus him instead of his carry.”
