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

MrDomian says “Fight him in minions. Do short trades with him. Wait for team fights.”
TwTvRANGERZX says “Tahm Kench top isnt really picked anymore, but its an Old School counterpick. Spam Auto > E out trade pattern as much as you can, and try to win in CS.”

RandumPersin says “Very even matchup - take conqueror, ghost, and rush BotRK. Tahm Kench is a bit of a cheese pick as a toplaner these days, but he is still a powerful duelist. Respect the bonus damage his passive gives him on autos in the early levels and you should be fine. Use empowered W to break his Thick Skin shield and you should win every fight. Ghost is crucial in this matchup since Kench's ultimate has the capability to completely ruin our positioning to a point where even flash can't help us enough to recover. Unlike most champions where empowered W only really shines in laning phase, breaking his E shield remains our single most important counterplay tool to Kench throughout the entire game. He becomes pretty unfightable past 2 items, so make sure to push your advantage while you can. Don't ever dash in on this guy unless you are prepared to all-in since his Q slow is ridiculous and it stuns for an ungodly amount of time if he hits you a couple times beforehand. Don't disrespect his level 1 damage as well as the possibility for his ultimate to completely ruin our day and you should be fine.”

AdventurousBoldJourney says “Our Q hurts him. You can E him out of his Dive, or R him. Dodge his tongue like how you would dodge Illaoi E, or dodge the game.”

Smudey says “Try to body block his Qs by standing behind minions. You can win short trades with you empowered Qs, but you lose long trades due to his stacks and his massive E shield. Only taunt into him if you have a level lead or he is very low. If you aren't confident, take TP and play for Ults, but taking ignite is also fine if you really want to win lane.”
HightLoL says “win lvl1, short trades. dont e him until he channels w. care lvl 6 cheese under his tower.”
[12.17] HightLoL's Darius Guide by HightLoL | Darius Player
Fizzy says “Avoid fights near his tower, that's the biggest advice I can give you, he'll just throw you into it and it'll be a big problem. His Q is a bit of a problem because of his slowness, so if it's all three passive stacks, use W to parry his Q causing a stun and a possible win.”
hamgi says “(d blade, flash/teleport or flash/ignite, bone plating/unflinching) tahm is a lot like ornn in the sense that they're super tanky but do a lot of damage, but tahm is a little harder for yone than ornn bc he's more mobile. he has great gank set-up, so him using his w to engage (when ur not super low) is a tell-tale sign that ur being ganked. his q does not go thru minions, so u always want to hide behind them. each lick slows u and after 4 licks, he can stun u, so keep that in mind for when u do fight him. it is a skillshot, tho, so try ur best to dodge as u fight. after only 3 licks, tho, he can eat u, so be prepared to be spat out under a tower. tahm's have good discipline NOT eating u in spirit form, but in the off-chance the tahm does, u'll be fine. once u get spat out, it'll alr be over or u can just quickly recast it and get back to safety. try to always engage with e post-6 as this was err tahm's from wanting to eat u. altho be careful as if he gets 3+ stacks on u and ur body is not in a safe place, he will either w onto it to eat/stun u or simply walk past u and camp it”
Justkb says “Play passively early and don't shove the lane as he will look to eat you and throw you under tower. You hard win post laning phase as you can use him as a stacking tool in team fights. Having a decent wave position all laning phase is very important in this matchup! ”
[12.15] JUST1KB'S DARIUS GUIDE! by Justkb | Darius Player
StingingChicken says “Take Conqueror. Stay in your wave where you can land your Q and he can't land his, be careful of being spit under tower after 6. Unlike other tanks, he actually has some power in an all in. ”

Tips Against Tahm Kench as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

NotAragami says “Not a lot of people plays Tahm Kench these days as he's remodeled from a troll pick to... something. He has really good engaging tools and soaks up extreme amount of damage, most people don't really use his new W due to how slow it is. Mind his Q though as it chunks you a lot of HP in early game. ”
[12.17] Frostfire Annie, Frostfire Gauntlet by NotAragami | Annie Player
OakuMarai says “Very strong engage and annoying poke for tank standards. Otherwise not much of a problem. Guardian with celerity. If you see him using W try to evade. If he does engage, CC his adc.”
CosmicTidecaller's Guide to the Tidecaller by OakuMarai | Nami Player
Lugos says “He is one tank who can teleport in your face, stun and eat you to spit into the enemy. Try to predict this and place your silence where he will appear and kite him with Q.”
OakuMarai says “W him away when he engages, if you cant peel him away then CC his adc”
Alistar Gaming by OakuMarai | Alistar Player
Coach Sollaw says “Can save an ennemy with his R and he his a bit tanky with some damage could be hard in early level”
Yougz Rakan by Coach Sollaw | Rakan Player
Jageiko says “Tham is too slow to annoy you that much. Unless he goes for your carry, dont mind him. You can cancel his W channeling with your E or your R. If he is paired with a Senna in botlane, play safe and roam when you can : nothing will happen anyway.”
PrismaticShield says “Tahm is also a champ that you can encounter Top or Bot side. He can get behind you very easily, deals way more damage than you early game and is defnitely way tankier than you.”
Touka1 says “bit tanky and annoying but also very easy match up against Janna”

Daromius says “As long as you dodge his Q you should be fine, if needed you can go for mage items to take him down.”

Navn says “Hard to poke him down at all, since he regens so much.”

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

franksterzz says “In general, you want to ignore him during the lane. You can poke him with autos but he will heal most of it back. If you dodge his W and Q which are really slow and telegraphed he's not a big problem. Careful when going all in post 6 because he can eat you or protect his ADC with his ult.”
Aphelios Comprehensive Guide by franksterzz | Aphelios Player
UwUSoftGirl says “[Poke/Short Trades] Tahm Kench can easily jump on top of you with his (W), but there is a startup animation for it. You don't really have the tools to stop him but your support probably does, so it's on the support to stop Tahm's (W). His (Q) is a must dodge, as it'll slow you making him catch up. You outrange him pokey pokey.”

Alistar Gaming by OakuMarai | Alistar Player
Grondvreter says “Not tested yet but is the same as Sett, unless he is ADC then u focus the enemy Support and run.”
m1NEEX says “He will probably get played with fasting Senna as support, as long as you don't die you outscale them, their classic combo is senna root into his W knock-up. Putting traps over his W is also an option, having Soraka support helps a lot in this match-up since she can cancel his W + help you outsustain Senna's poke. Don't fight him early, his base armor is ridiculous.”
Kamicali says “Very hard to kite, he's very beefy in his early levels and it only gets worse from there.”
CRIT-Based DPS (Xayah) by Kamicali | Xayah Player
Kitqsune says “Personally I've never faced one before but just from thinking about it this matchup is awful. Tahm can shield through ult and can ult you when you're about to. Also has free cc and can easily slow/stun you to death.”
quinn adc says “Literally all you need to know is that if Tahm Q slows you, AA-E-AA to proc phase rush. This means he cant walk up to hit you with W, ever. Stand behind minions, and if he Q slows you, use phase rush to escape. He relies on this slow to use W on you, which is all of his damage. If you go even in this lane then it is a win for you becasue Tahm relies on getting ahead to do anything in this matchup.”
7EyesNoSkills says “If you are a Kalista expert you can easily dodge his Q and W, so he wont be a problem for you. If you are not, play behind minions and don't get poked with his Q, poke him with AA. Don't get too close because he can stack his passive and ult you.”
[12.9] 7EyesNoSkills' Kalista Guide by 7EyesNoSkills | Kalista Player
SopTop says “Very tanky, but other than that you can just build a Serpent's thing and be over with it. If he swallows you, just E back to safety right after he spits you out. His new W can cc you pretty hard, but it's pretty easy to dodge using E.”
