Tahm Kench also has absolutely 0 gap closer, so his aggressive spells are rather meh. He is the most defensive support ever. And his ultimate, I would say Shen support is better.

Well, he has something of a gap closer when he scoops up a teammate and runs toward the enemy. Plus, his ultimate can set up some wicked two man ganks. However, those kinds of moves will need some good communication between teammates. Also, you definitely have to build speed boost items on him to overcome his inherent lack of mobility.

Then you just kill Tahm Kench before he can get away. Even with the small speed increase he gets with a teammate inside him, he doesn't have much mobility. Besides, there are lots of supports who can rescue people out of position with their abilities. Nami bubble, Soraka heals and silence, Lulu shield and whimsy, Thresh's lantern, etc.


Focus the tanky support before he can get away.... huh.


And I wasn't aware that nami's bubble or soraka's heal can pull people out from danger. Huh!

People told me I suck cuz I played Shen support, now suddenly he is one of the strongest supports in the game, how times can change. Who could have thought that Shen basically autowins every lane post he is 6.

But of a shame they buffed Spirit Visage to increase all healing by 20% then otherwise he might be top tier.

Basically MOBAFire.

It will if I have to explain the obvious to you. Focus the tanky immobile easily cc'd support while the damage dealer is stuck not being able to do anything inside him? Sure. Go for it. Even if you don't get the full kill, both will be low on health, and you can pressure them from then on.

Nami's bubble and heal and Soraka's silence and heal are often able to pull people out of bad situations that they got themselves into. Yes. Not sure what you're having difficulty with on that. Actually, in their cases, they can heal their dumb adc back up to full health, too, and Tahm Kench can't do that.

I notice that you didn't mention Thresh's lantern, which doesn't even put Thresh in harm's way.

This has been my experience as well, as far as support goes. Devour is pretty annoying if you're an assassin but other than that I don't see much appeal. I'd much rather have Stand United than Devour as well.
Thanks to Lugignaf for the sig!

Even if Tahm does devour someone its not like he's hard to catch.
Leona Q, Shen E, Taric's Dazzle make him a sitting duck.

Basically MOBAFire.

You understand that Tahm Kench can carry someone *with* him, right? Kinda the point of him. I think he'll be used in team play more than in solo queue, because voice communication will help a lot with him.
