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 is an AD teemo guide centered around doing **** tons of damage, lots of armor pen and decent attack speed
Pros / Cons
-Small: harder to click :P
-very strong cc: blind and slow
-hard to gank: shrooms slow them so he can W and run away, tossing in a blind if need be
-gets focused hard if he is doing good, or doing bad
-very farm reliant, but what ad carry isn't?
-gets shut down by oracles or pink wards. This is easily countered by teemo getting an oracles elixer. it allows him to kill the pink wards before he places his shrooms. also with his high mobility he is hard to chase down and kill to remove that oracle from his head
I take attack speed reds, no explanation needed.
I like mana regen yellows, they can be swapped out for hp/lvl if you think you are going to be facing some heavy late-game nuking, or if they have a very tanky comp
For blues, I take more attack speed, they can be swapped for flat mr or mr/lvl against a heavily ap centered team. for example, a LB mid and a vlad solo top, or ahri mid and akali top. you get the idea.
I like flat AD quints, i have a hard time last hitting 1-3 as teemo due to his **** base damage. but these can be swapped out for armor pen quints if that's more your style.
I take a lot in the offence category. Making sure go get extra CDR along with the improved Ghost.
Start off with the standard boots and 3 pots. try to save up enough for a BF sword on your first trip back, if not possible, get a Brutalizer and a few more potions or up to 3 dorans blades. I like to rush Black Cleaver for the early game destruction that also scales great into late game. This will destroy any champ with substantial armor, such as Garen who gets his free armor from his W making him extremely tanky early on.
from there I like to finish up my Zerker greaves and start working on a Zeal.
after my zeal is done, i begin on the BT OR on a Frozen Mallet if I am taking substantial damage and need that 700hp, both very good choices.
From here i continue to farm up enough for my PD, great move speed, attack speed, and crit chance which synergizes well with the bonus crit damage from the masteries.
If you chose to get the brutalizer, now is a good time to sell it and start working on your IE.
The longer a game goes, the more devestating tanky champs become,so you need to shut them down fast. This is where i will either take last whisper to slice them down, or if I got Frozen mallet earlier, i take Atmas. Why take atmas on a champ with this low health? Well, with frozen mallet, you are up to about 2500 hp (depending on the runes you chose) that will give you almost 40 AD, not a lot, but, dont forget the crit chance and the armor. Now you are more on par with the tankiness of the opposing team and still are adding more damage from the more frequent crits which are now almost 100 damage higher(thanks to the bonus 40 AD)
fool around with the build a bit though. if the other team has 3 hard hitting APs consider maw of malmorius, or how ever you spell it, instead of Atmas
Here is another guide that has a very detailed shroom placement guide
check it out, i take no credit for this, of course.
