Is Tahm Kench an AP or AD Champion?

edited November 22 in Knowledge Base

This is a question that has been asked many times and it's time to put it to rest. Tahm Kench is an AP champion.

There are many reasons to believe this. For one, his kit is very clearly designed around AP scaling. His Q (Tongue Lash), W (Abyssal Voyage), and R (Devour) all scale off of AP, especially his ultimate deals a ton of magic damage based on AP.

Furthermore, Tahm Kench's performance in both solo queue and professional play supports the case that he is an AP champion.

In solo queue, he has been played as both an AP and an AD champion, but AP Tahm Kench has consistently outperformed AD Tahm Kench.

And in professional play, AP Tahm Kench is the only viable way to play him. The vast majority of Tahm Kench players in professional League of Legends are building him AP, and they are having great success with it.

So, there you have it. Tahm Kench is an AP champion. If you're looking to play him in the most successful way possible, you should build him AP.
