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.
Most times i play with Teemo i get the fb . I always buy Doran's Blade and Health Potion and then rush to the mid . I get there before my opponet cause of my raised speed and then i wait there in stealth mode . When the enemy comes and pass me i start attacking him (camouflage's atk speed helps a lot) and i use Ignite , when he starts retreating (they always do) i use the Exhaust to slow and kill him . Even if he manage to get behind the turret my poison will kill him . When the enemy revives and come back i am already lvl 3 and own him ^^ .
Solo : When i solo mid i try to trap my enemy . I put my shrooms all around the mid line where the enemy will try to escape and some more near Baron and Dragon so i will know if any other enemy wil try to come mid . Then i keep distance from enemy (especially if my mid-opponet is mage , cause of Teemo **** M Resist) and try to lure them near my shrooms . If the enemy is mage i try to kill him with shrooms , if he is fighter then Blinding Dart rules ^^ . I can even solo tanks like Morde if my Exhaust and Ignite are ready .
Team Work : In late game when we fight all vs all the best way to play is to act like a bait . While the rest team hides (f.e in grass ) i lure the enemies to them and put shrooms to the way after me so when we reach my rest team they are already slowed and poisoned . When the fight starts i stay behind my team and keep poisoning all the the other enemies all the time .
*I always have a shroom ready for use just in case i have low life and get attacked or i get ganged which i put behind me so i can escape .
*When fighting minions poison all of them first in order to have the control at your line .
After Doran's Blade next thing i buy is Emblem of Valour , a really useful item cause even if u have low life u can stay in stealth mode and regain hp while your minions give you xp . Then i buy Berserker's Greaves so i can hunt or escape my enemies and i complete my Stark's Fervor . I think that it is the best lifesteal item as it gives high lifesteal , atk speed (which is essential for Teemo ) and armor penetration . Next thing is Last Whisper cause its armor penetration is very important in my game . With these items Teemo can take many kills in early game . The rest things Phantom Dancer , The Black Cleaver and Infinity Edge are all items focused on damage , atk speed and crit strike with which Teemo rules at lvl 18 .
*Another thing you could use instead of Last Whisper is Sword Of The Divine , cause it deals 100 extra magic damage every 4 hits and with Teemo's atk speed that means 100 extra dmg every 2 sec . I just prefer the Last Whisper cause it has permanent Armor Penetration .
*In case the enemy team has many mages i replace one of the things above with Wit's End which gives Atk Speed , Magic Resist , removes Mana and gives extra Dmg . Something that is really useful if you manage to remove all of your mage enemy's mana , then he will be just +1 kill .
I prefer 24 points in offense cause it makes a very offensive and killer Teemo . I want the 3 points in Perseverence cause Teemo runs too often out of Mana and the 3 points in Good Hands just cause i am really bored when i am dead :P .
Most builds i have seen here are like 9x same Mark , 9x same Seal etc . I really dont like that and i have used more different runes cause i try to ballance all the stats that Teemo needs in fight .
Pros / Cons
Pros : The biggest advantage of Teemo is his poison and the shrooms which will give him many kills even when Teemo is dead , i have scored a double kill when i was dead :P . Also his speed that allows him to hunt or escape from enemies .
Cons : The only disadvantage of Teemo is his low Def and M Resist that make him the favourite target of the enemy team .
