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

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. ”

BoilTheOil says “Go Conqueror. At the moment this champ is very overtuned, I'd recommend banning him. You can kind of fight him levels 1-3, but other than that you never want to even try to fight him. Try to scale for teamfights.”

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.”

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. ”
[11.15] Fiora Handbook (Top / Mid) (+Match-up Guide) by Anoying bro5 | Fiora Player
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.”

SaltCat says “I rarely see that frog anymore, but when i do i am not happy, level 1 play passive, level 2 also , level 3 with stacked passive you can kill him, just be carefull of his stacks, you can just go for a trade and when he is close to full stacks just Q away”
RTO says “Avoid trading pre 6. Once you are 6, you have a little bit of kill pressure. ”

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. You can't win the 1v1 just focus on surviving him and keeping him off your team. Sunfire and tenacity boots will be needed so you can move.”

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.”
Raen's Jax Video Tips & Tricks & Build ^̮^ by Raen | Jax Player
Phrxshn says “Prevent yourself from getting 3 stacks of An Acquired Taste or his Tongue Lash(Q) and Devour(R) 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: Demonic Embrace, Mercury's Treads) (Outscaling Edge: Singed) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Tahm Kench) (Mega Adhesive prevents and stops from Abyssal Dive(W) being cast) (Auto attack stops Abyssal Voyage before casting animation)”

MiningRicK says “Fasting Senna is very strong and your strength to other ADC´s is that you can try to one-shot them and with Tahm Kench... yeah he is monster and immortal.”
The Korean Thundering Jayce! S11 [In Process] by MiningRicK | Jayce Player
KoZee says “This matchup can be a lot harder if you decide to go lethality, but even then you have the ability to poke him down. With Crit and AP however, you will be able to shred him despite his tankiness due to blight doing percent max health magic damage, and he can't easily build both. He is often good for saving his ADC, but this leaves him in a bad position to be targeting and caught out himself, as if you R him while he is carrying his ADC, the ADC will be dropped and instantly rooted by blight spreading.”
kingamazin says “Watch out for kench q as the slow can be deadly, but other than that he shouldn't be able to do much to you.”
Challenger Jinx Guide by kingamazin | Jinx Player
Profesor APH. says “if he is not with senna its pretty easy you can root him you run away when hes using r, he need so much time to root someone pretty easy| when tahm is senna he is extreme cause its broken as fuck try to give some aa when he gonna last hiting when senna gonna take soul haras her if she aa you run away dont give her souls”

EvoNinja7 says “He has a really good amount of tankiness once he gets a few items (they don't have to be a complete item, the can be components). He can swallow you up and dump you in the middle of the enemy team which is bad especially for you. Try to abuse him in the early game or build Kraken Slayer before his tankiness gets TOO out of hand.”

Kuefi says “He has slows and is quite hard to kill later on so try go get his frog as* early on”

SkittleBtw says “Honestly, just challenge yourself to see how quickly you can kill him each time he returns back to lane until he leaves the game.”

Ultrama says “His W can be a pain sometimes. Just don't do long trades, he has a lot of damage and it's very tanky. Watch out for his R.”

Camelorry says “Block his q, and bring a lot of cc to punish him when he uses his w on the carry. Be careful for gank post level six. ”

Ellesmere says “The River King has incredible amounts of damage, 2 health bars, and massive CC. This makes him very very difficult to kill. Late game you should be able to 1v1 unless he's fed, but early game just focus on counterganking as he is one of the strongest gankers (Is that a word? it sounds weird) in the game.”

RedNBlue says “He will be able to tank your damage late game but it won't be that hard to kill him early game.”
liserith says “Aside from Greyskin, nothing in his kit can help him survive against you. His counterganking is great, but without good mobility, he's not great. You can duel him at any point in the game.”
Normie Kindred Guide (UPDATED FOR 11.12) by liserith | Kindred Player
Al Groz says “Disgusting champ. Can't do anything while he is around his ADC. Must ban.”
RedNBlue says “He can tank your damage and he can cc you, he will just ult his way behind you and surprise you. He will be annoying little fish.”

Karthus man says “Tahm Kench is very good against attack damage champs, but only OK against magic damage champs. The way to kill him is by getting a void staff and stay away from his attack range.”

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.”
smutnycarak says “Really tanky and can rescue enemy ADC in every moment when you engage.”

vxryrvre says “Tahm's E is up every 3 seconds, making him effectively have double the HP that he appears to have, unless you build BOtRK you're dead.”
