Riot’s latest League of Legends champion has been named and revealed as Tahm Kench The River King.
This slimy looking chap is a support character who’s primary role is to make sure his buddies stay safe while they farm. His abilities also mean he can tank in a solo lane and has some pretty nifty abilities. His W ability devour serves as both enemies and foes depending on the situation. Minions and monsters can be swallowed and spat out at a target, allies can be swallowed whole making them immune from damage which also grants a speed boost, and enemies can be swallowed once he’s stacked three “An acquired taste” on them.
There’s a skill demonstration video up on the League of Legends site if you want to see all his skills in action and also read more about the chubby gobbler.
