Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This build is basically only meant for solo top teemo. I strongly don't recommend midding while using this build.
Id also like to so say sorry in advance for not having fancy pictures for your viewing pictures, but lets face if you most likely don't care bout all this stuff unless you actually plan to learn how to truely play teemo. Trust me there are alot more guides that are far more detailed then this one. This guide is just to show how you should build,and input runes and masteries for teemo to last in team fights, be able to keep up in top lane, and just plain stomp.
Pros / Cons
Easy Mid Game Farming
No Need For Wards
Shred Through Tanks+Beefy
Will Get Harassed A LOT (TEEMO HIMSELF IS A TAUNT)
Early Level No Damage What So Ever
Can't Siege Towers
Might Not Be Help To Team If Not Farmed
MOST IMPORTANT PART TO THIS GUIDE, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO FARM. At lv 1 teemo sucks at farming so just do what you can until lv2. Once you have poison it should be alot easier to farm lower health minions. Once you've farmed about 700 gold buy your madreds and continue to farm, make sure to harass enemies that are within range of teemo.(WARNING U WILL BE OUTRANGED BY ALOT OF CHAMPS)
Tanky runes + some magic pen for the poison
Tanky masteries + more magic pen for poison
always changeable for different personal play style
Move Speed 3rd
From there just max poison first, Blind 2nd, and movement 3rd
Possible change is that you can take poison first if you don't like not being able to farm lv1, but this isn't recommended if you're opposing has alot of AD that auto atts.
When playing using this guide you must know that you have to get used to teemo's farming mech, just like every other champ you just have to get used to it. There are simple skills to master though, such as the blinding. When fighting champs that auto att, such as the AD carry of the other team, remember to blind them when starting a fight and whenever you team fight, this skill is a great counter for fighters such a trynd. Another important skill is to learn how to kyte, as you get chased by the other team you must lead the opponents to either your shrooms or your team.
Now it comes to the part that makes or breaks a good and bad teeemo player. Shrooming . When you reach six the first thing to do is shroom the river for ganks, don't just shroom the bush! make sure you have enough mana for blind and shrooms(shrooms actually cost quite a bit of mana so be careful) when you;ve shroomed the river, shroom the upper bushes and on the side of lanes, not in the middle though unless you're using your shrooms to farm minions. Once you're done shroom behind you, because by this time it'll be mid game and people will be ready to dive you at your tower. When they go in they might get scared off by the shroom, or they might hit a shroom on their way out and thats a easy shroom kill. After laning phase is over make sure that you shroom in bushes, intersections of import parts of the map, baron and dragon, before team fights, and before taking baron or dragon.
Another important skill the learn is the use of your passive, this is if you stay still you'll go invis. Remember this skill isn't just a defensive ability, when ganking this can put alot of damage output because it also increases your attack speed.
MADREDS IS YOUR BASE DMG
The starks and boots are interchangable for either
Atma's and att speed boots
If you truely aren't satisfied with your dmg output try out other build and look at other guides , that might be of help to those that like inventing their own way to play a champ.
Flash and Teleport are recommended
Flash to get out of a bad fight
Teleport for ganking off of your shrooms, helping team dragon, and just defending lanes
You're free to use your prefered spells though
I've actually never tried this build with other summoner spells
Creeping / Jungling
Realisticly you don't need jungle buffs but if you end up team fighting at blue and the rest of the people are dead take the blue buff because the mana cost of constantly shrooming and blinding eventually stack up and will really screw you up in lane.
As everyone knows there are those champions who are just way stronger solo laners than others, well when you end up agaisnt one, as such Volibear. You must be careful, play passively, and farm. Wait for your jungler to help you out and if worst comes to worst know when to just give up your tower and go help other lanes.
