Teemo is an amazing character who is commonly overlooked in champion selection. He does incredible damage if built correctly, and can lock down the entire map if given enough time. Make sure you do not overlook the power of Run Fast, it can help you chase down enemies with amazing proficiency, as well as escape from danger. It is also an amazing tool for kiting melee champions who would otherwise wreck your day.


Unlimited map visibility
Mushrooms in this build still do amazing damage
Can destroy tanks and squishies alike
Able to escape from most situations with blinding dart and Run Fast
A ton of damage
Cutest character in the game


A subpar early game champ, very item dependent so play carefully until your boots are done and you get your recurve bow.
Easily killed if stunned and focused
Needs a solo lane to be most effective
If the other team gets oracles his mushrooms and passive become mostly worthless
Distractingly cute

Teemos runes are simple, mag pen for obvious reasons, dodge for a little more survivability, and Ap per level for a little extra kick. The health quints are especially useful early game when Teemo is at his weakest and can be killed more easily.

I prefer 9 0 21 masteries for the extra magic pen and the ability to spam mushrooms. Teemos strongest point is his ability to cover the map and or turrets with mushrooms and prevent the opposing team from moving unseen through the jungles.

Madreds is the core of this build, with it Teemo becomes an amazing champ that can rip through enemy heroes. With this in mind malady is a perfect compliment to Teemo's arsenal, this build allows Q to be a very strong nuke, as well as lowering the magic resistance of an enemy running over mushrooms. Tome enables teemo to spam mushrooms everywhere he possibly can, covering the middle of the map and areas with heavy fighting can easily swing the battle in your teams favor. Finally, frozen mallet gives Teemo the health he so desperately craves, as well as the ability to prevent anyone from running away.
There is an open spot in this build, if you get that far, choose based on what team you are going against, I sometimes get a rylai's just for the health, even with the slow from the Mallet.

Ult at 6-11-16, q then w otherwise with a rank of Run Fast at level 3.

Summoner Spells

I prefer flash to escape nasty champions and their Teemo unfriendly ults, Kat and Jarvan come to mind. Teleport is a must have in my opinion, the ability to teleport to mushrooms makes backdooring and reentering fights easy as pie.
