How it works

  1. You play as Mage building AP items.
  2. You rush Liandry's Torment.
  3. You burn your enemies. With DOTs. And debuffs.

How to play

  1. Playing AP Burn Tahm Kench build, your default rush is Liandry's Torment.
  2. Adapt to an enemy team. Are they full of tanks, and they rush tons of Magic Resist? You rush Void Staff as #2 or #3 item to counter MR stacking. Their team has champs with lots of healing? Rush Oblivion Orb as #2 item (upgrade to Morellonomicon as 4th or 5th item).
  3. Items like Morellonomicon or Oblivon Orb are extra effective with this build, thanks to damage over time effects from Liandry's Torment.
  4. In some rare cases, when an enemy team has an extremely strong shielding, you can even buy Serpent's Fang. It works with your DoTs, meaning shield reduction lasts longer.
  5. Somebody is going after you each fight? Always getting ulted by enemy assassins? Rush Zhonya's Hourglass.
  6. If you are doing well, are ahead and want to have some fun, you can buy The Collector item. It works off your damage over time effects!
  7. Horizon Focus is a great item on Tahm Kench.

Tips and Tricks

Build specific
  1. You can farm minions very well with your Q. Low cooldown and big damage. Get these siege minions!
  2. You can Tongue Lash (Q) + two autos + Tongue Lash (Q) + Devour (R) them from the distance.
General
  1. You can cancel your Abyssal Dive (W) with Flash in case of emergency.
  2. If you know you will get alive, don't use Thick Skin (E). Let it heal you instead.
  3. Want to hit Abyssal Dive (W)? Face the other direction to mislead the enemy.
  4. Hit Tongue Lash (Q) first, then use Abyssal Dive right away for certain hit.
  5. Just ate enemy player? Don't spit him out immediately. Wait for your cooldown, your allies and their cooldowns as well. Ping them if needed.
Riot
  1. Your most important function as a support is to keep fragile allies safe. Keep Devour's range and cooldown in mind and position accordingly!
  2. Consider carefully when to use Thick Skin's active. Sometimes shielding early to avoid further damage is good, but sometimes the healing is more beneficial.
