It’s time to unload the toad and unbench the Kench as a League of Legends Tahm Kench rework is now on PBE. 

League of Legends players have been anticipating the Tahm Kench mini-rework. This rework will possibly make him more viable in solo queue as opposed to his team-oriented, team-coordinated play.  This is the second rework Riot has made in the last few months.

A Surrenderat20 mod, Spideraxe, compiled Tahm Kench’s updated tooltips on Twitter. This detailed the River King’s abilities that are being tested on PBE.

Riot had already hinted at making Tahm Kench’s Devour becoming his ultimate, giving his new W an AoE knock-up. League of Legends players can look at the specifics of the changes on PBE but numbers subject to change.

An Acquired Taste, his passive, and Thick Skin, his E, remained relatively the same; not changing. But there were noteworthy adjustments on Tongue Lash, his Q - it includes a self-heal for six to ten percent of missing health and now applies a stack of his passive when hitting a champion. 

But Tahm Kench’s W and Ultimate take the cake as the biggest changes. His new W, Abyssal Dive, resembles his old ultimate with a number of tweaks. He dives down and then reappears at a target location, dealing damage and knocking up all enemies in the area for one second. Like his original Ultimate, devoured allies can still come along but its range is far less than what it used to be. When it comes to his Ultimate, Devour, enemies' consumes will take more damage than its original form. As well as allies Devoured will be granted a shield for up to 2.5 seconds after being spit out.

Since the toad’s update hit the PBE, League fans can most likely expect it to hit the live servers soon.
