[9.8] Tahm Kench Jungle Guide - Unbench the Kench

By nZk01
Who am I?
Hello my fellow Unbenched Kench's!

Im nZk and even though im a Shaco OTP (Diamond 4 Peak in S8), Tahm and Udyr are my go to Picks when Shaco is banned or Picked.

I learned about Tahm Jungle through LS, yes exactly, the Analyst, Coach and LCK Caster, as he played Tahm Kench in the Jungle in his Streams.
His Twitch :
His YT :
Why play Thomas Kench? And why in the Jungle? Back to Top
Tahm Kench is one of the strongest Junglers as he can 1v1 literally any Jungler right now.

He is very good in the Jungle because of his %HP Damage and on-hit damage from his Passive, such as Map pressure after Level 6.

He is very fun to play, as he can secure Crabs very good with his W, just eat the crab and take it into your Jungle as it won't reset like other Camps.

Even though Tahm Kench is normally a Support Champ which can get played in Toplane too, but I think Jungle is the strongest role for him, as he has good Map Pressure, good Ganks (Slow, Eat) and insane River Control.
TLDR for Runes Back to Top
Fleet for Sustain

Hail of Blades for early fights and ganks

Unsealed Spellbook for long games

Phase Rush against non-mobile champs, but only when 2+ in the enemy team

Glacial Augment for when your team has no engage

Lethal Tempo for Hard smurfing on dem Kidz

Hope you enjoy your Tahm Games!
