Most of the teemo builds you see now are AP and also there are very few builds that are up to date with season 3 so I decided I should do an AD build for teemo. In my opinion, AD teemo is much more powerful than AP teemo. This is because with an AD teemo with high attack speed you will be able to push lanes and farm like mad. If you have only every tried AP teemo or you have never tried teemo before, I definetly recommend giving this build a go. This is my first build so please leave a comment on what you think and if you have any questions leave a comment with it and I try my best to reply to it! Enjoy!
The runes are quite easy to see why I chose each one. The attack speed helps with DPS, the armor helps with how squishy teemo is and I am sure that you can guess why I chose damage and attack speed.
Like the runes, the masteries are quite simple to why I chose them and don't need much explaining. The high offense makes it even easier for teemo to push lanes (something that teemo already does very well.) The defense gives teemo a little bit extra health which is something that teemo really benifits from (mainly early game.)
As well as buying the items that I have put in the list, make sure that you keep yourself topped on health potions to help make up for how squishy Teemo is. These items will make Teemo attack speed and damage amazingly high. I start off with boots of speed and potions. The potions mean Teemo can stay in his lane for much longer before having to go back for health. This gives Teemo the chance to get lots of minion kills early game. The boots of speed help avoid attacks and help Teemo run away. (This is particually useful before you unlock Teemo's W and level 3.) I then move on to 2 daggers. Buying these daggers early on means that you can start farming and pushing lanes much quicker. After the dagger I have chosen berserker's greaves. The recurve bow and dagger build into the runaan's hurricane. This item is a new item that was added in season 3 and it feels like it was made just for Teemo. The main thing that this item does best is farming, this item becomes even better late game when teemo's DPS is really high. The next item is the phantom dancer which is a great item for teemo as it improves movement, attack speed, critical strike and makes it so Teemo ignores unit collision. Next you start building towards the statikk shiv another new and great item that is really good for Teemo. If you find yourself getting a lot of gold you could buy the trinity force instead of this item as the trinity force is a better item but it is just very expensive so if you are unsure I would reccomend sticking with the statikk shiv. After this I have put the black cleaver as I already have enough attack speed an the damage and amour pen from it is very useful. The final item is the frozen mallet, this item's passive makes it even hard for people to escape from teemo. Another strong item to get would be the Guardian Angel If you do chose to buy this item I would recommend buying it instead of the black cleaver.
The skill sequence I have chosen is slightly different to many other teemo skill sequences as most of them will say either level up your Q every time you get a chance or level up your E every time you get a chance. In mine it is slightly different because I recommend leveling up your Q and you E in turn after each other and maxing your Q first. I think this is the best skill sequence for teemo as it means that you can go in and attack someone with your Q then while they are blinded you hit them a few times and your E will passivly apply a few stacks of powerful poison onto them. I max the Q first as I think it is a very important ability as it allows teemo to do poke damage very effectivly. The way that you should use each of teemo's skills is you should go in for an attack with your Q and then get as many hits in as possible. You should use your W alot as it helps you: chase people, run away and it helps you get to the action faster. Teemo's R is his mushrooms. The mushrooms is an absolutly amazing ability! But only if you use them correctly. How to place shrooms is so important that I have giving it a whole chapter.
A lot of builds won't use heal and will recommend something like ignite instead. As teemo you have your E so you don't really need ignite and you are very squishy so in my opinion heal is a better option. I have chosen flash instead of ghost teemo is already very fast and has his W so flash is a better option than ghost but ghost is also a very good spell to use.
Pros / Cons
Really high DPS
Really good at pushing lanes
Easy to to pick up, hard to master
So good late game and when fed
Not brilliant (but far from rubbish) early game
Every plays teemo
What to do in your lane and in team fights
You should always try and play teemo top. (even better solo top if you do have a jungler) My first point on what to do in the lane is quite obvious but very important, try and farm as much as possible! If you are 1v1 top lane then you should give that person as much pressure as possible and keep playing really agressivly (but don't over extend) If you are against 2 people or one person who is giving you a lot of trouble you should try and stay close to your tower. You should try and use you Q for poke damage (Try and do Q followed by a few auto attacks for maximum poke damage.) You should use your shrooms to make sure that you don't get ganked, to make sure you have an escape route if things get out of hand and to make sure the enemy cant escape on low health. If you don't have a jungler try and make it so you are laning with either a support or a tank. In a team fight the chances are that you are the one that your team are relying on to do the damage. Always targer the biggest threat to your team (probably the person who is highest level) and never target the tank as it is their job to take damage for their team. The next point is very obvious but very important, try not to do in a team fight. This is important as teemo as you are the carry so you should try and get as many kills as possible and as few deaths as possible.
Try and last hit!!! If you don't know what this is, it is when you wait to the enemy minions are on very low health and you do the final attack to kills them. This means that you get the gold for killing it. You shouldn't use your Q or your R to farm, just use auto attacks. Even though teemo doesnt have any farming abilities you get a lot of minion kills. If you play it right you should be able to kills minions so quick late game.
In summary: Last hit, try and get fed as much as possible and place your shrooms in good places. If you have any questions or feedback (positive or negative) please comment. If you would like me to do a guide for another champion please leave a comment with who you would like me to do and I am very likely to do a guide for them.
