Introduction to me

Hi everyone!

I'm Wav3x3on and this is my Jungle Tahm Kench Guide. I really and only like Tahm Kench in the jungle. As Support Tahm you have a hard time getting kills for your adc in lane but not as jungle Tahm. He's so much fun to play, he has strong ganks and it's satisfying to Devour your oponents to death.

Also feel free to comment on my guide! I appreciate every feedback and I will answer every question.

Jungle Pathing

The correct jungle pathing is really important for Tahm Kench.

Start at Gromp but don't use Devour imediatly. Smite Gromp, attack it until it's below 20% health then you use Devour and carry it over to the Blue Sentinel.
Spit Gromp onto the Blue Sentinel, Gromp will get killed and Blue hurt. Skill your q and kill Blue.
After Blue you are Going to do Wolves. Always eat the big Wolve and keep it in your stomach as long as possible. Spit it out and keep attacking until they die.
Now Rift Scuttler. Use Tongue Lash and Devour, no need to keep it in your stomach this time and keep on autoattacking. After Rift Scuttler you go back and buy Skirmisher's Sabre or Stalker's Blade and 2 Health Potion
Now you go for the Krugs. Again always eat the big one and keep it in your stomach as long as possible and kill the small one. Get the big Krug below 20% health and carry it over to the Red Brambleback.
Spit the big Krug onto the Red Brambleback, it will die again like Gromp and Red will get hurt. Do Red and Smite-kill it for extra health.
Soon you wil have a second smite charge that can be used for ganking. If no lane is gankable keep on farming.

Try to get behind your enemy, smite him with Skirmisher's Sabre and if needed use Tongue Lash first (for example when the oponnent flashed away), now try to get 3 Stacks on your enemy, after that use Tongue Lash, if not on cooldown and Devour on your enemy, at this point your oponnent should've taken a lot of damage already and it's an easy kill. Past lvl 6 you can use Abyssal Voyage to gank. Try to teleport behind your targets, because he needs some time to teleport and they can see you using it. Very good are laners with CC like Thresh, Ryze, LeBlanc ... they can lock you target down while you are teleporting.

Do the jungle Path like mentioned and after that try to get one or two succesful ganks. You can stay out of the base (most of the time) until you can get your Enchantment: Cinderhulk. Then keep ganking and farming if no lane is gankable.

Mid- Lategame

Midgame is kinda hard if you are not fed just try to get some Items completed.
In fights peel for your carrys or go for the enemy carrys.
A squishy target will almost always be dead after 3 autoattacks, Tongue Lash and Devour.
Devour does 32% of the targets Max Health as magic damage, that way you can shred tanks. Also don't be to greedy with Tongue Lash it's cooldown will be pretty low at max rank so you can use it to get your stacks of.
