Threats to Tahm Kench with this build

Show all
Threat Champion Notes
Thresh Its funny to see a good Thresh land all of his hooks just to have Tahm eat the ADC he just hooked or better yet eat the adc right before you hook him and you bring the ADC right you with the supp.
Blitzcrank Same deal with Thresh.

Let me just start this guide of by just saying Thank You for even coming to this page to read this. It means alot to me because this is my first guide and if people are enjoying my guide then it means the world to me.
Now the reason im making a guide for Tahm Kench Jungle is because I bought the bundle on release for Tahm and kinda hated him. He was slow, kinda hard and no-one knew how to play him. But one day my friends said "Hey lets try breaking the META!" so I respond with "How do you think we should?" To which he said "Support Jungle?" Thats was the first time I thought maybe Tahm Kench would be a good pick. So I try it and go 16/3/25 on a 45 minute game and we won team score 75/19/115 to 19/77/29.
TL:DR Basically I had an amazing game with Tahm Jungle and kept practicing to become a god with him and now I want to make other people a god with him.

Pros / Cons

.Tahm Kench's roaming is outstanding after Level 11 b/c he can gank mid, get a kill or assist, then ulti down to bot/top with the allied mid lanner and have a double gank
.His 1v1 is probably one of the best so long as they don't kite you or have insane Life steal.
.Tahm Kench can save any ally that gets out of place/CC'd to hell, all with his W
.Great CC
.Semi-slow early game
.Gets countered by any form of heavy counter Jungle or counter ganks
.Terrible if behind(just like almost every champion)
.If caught out of place can ruin a team fight sense he has no escape

Creeping / Jungling

So your going to start with Gromp then Blue because he uses sooooooo much mana early game. then your going to take wolves and back for the rangers trailblazer. After that start farming near bot if you can but if nothings left go to chickens and Red. Once you've got lvl 6 and your Jungle item you can start to gank lanes, Pref. Mid or Bot. If you gank any lane and they are kinda pushed help them to take a turret but be cautious of mid/bot/top lane coming to counter gank you.
Once you've reached mid game start being very objective focused. Taking turrets, getting drag and stealing Jungle when ever you can. By this point you should have rod and Warmong's so your sustain is unmatched b/c of warmongs and your damage is terrifying b/c of your Ulti's passive.
Late game your goal is to be a giant *** wall with a giant *** sheild that can self regenerate if left unattended to and will destroy anyone out of place while saving any allies out of place. Basically, annoy the **** out of the enemy team.
