The River Monster

Tahm Kench the river monster!
Tahm Kench is a strong support option. He has a fair amount of CC and personally he's one of my favorite supports to play.
I will do my best to explain my methods of Tahm Kench so you can hopefully learn something new or useful. I may refer to "Tahm Kench" as "Tahm" or "Kench" throughout this guide.
This is a guide in progress.

Early Game Play

I just about always will start the game with Relic Shield, Refillable Potions, and a warding totem trinket. Relic shield gives a fair amount of health and heals you and your ally as well as sharing kill gold.You don't want to engage until level 3 when you have a one point in each basic ability Tongue Lash Devour Thick Skin. Your main poking tool is Tongue Lash use this to apply stacks or proc the stun. Devour is a must if you want to be aggressive you can use it to save your ADC or use it offensively to CC an enemy and damage them. Thick Skin Is a must before you engage deep as it will heal you if you let the gray health convert to health. Or you can use it as a shield if need be. In skill explanation I go into more details about these abilities.
