Hey welcome to my guide for Teemo.
The guide will focus on 3 main points:
- attack speed
- ability power
- movement speed
I hope you enjoy!

Guide Top


My masteries are offensive, 21/9/0
In the offense, I focussed on the AP side with a little bit of attack speed
In the defense, I chose for Tough Skin with some armor and health

Guide Top


Greater Mark of Magic Penetration x 9
Greater Seal of Armor x 9
Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power x 9
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed x 3
Marks and Glyphs are focussed on your damage output
Seals give you some armor for early game survival
Quintesses give you movementspeed to increase the effect
of Boots of Mobility and Move Quick

Summoner Spells

I take Surge and Ignite which are both very agressive spells
The reason I use them is that Teemo is extremelly item-dependent
You need early game kills to own mid/late game
You will use Flash probably to escape
With Surge you will deal a lot more unexpected damage with your basic attacks
It increases your attackspeed so: You hit them with more attacks
It also increases your ability power so: Your attacks deal more damage
If you stack your Toxic Shot with Ignite your damage is deadly
This will allow you to kill your target within a few seconds at lvl 3 (with 2 points in your Toxic Shot)
Other Summoner Spells you can use instead of Ignite (you really need Surge):
Heal to stay alive for longer
This will allow you to deal more damage
Exhaust to slow your enemy zo he can't escape and deals less damage

Skill Sequence

I choose my Blinding Dart first and max it last:
At lvl 1 your Blinding Dart is very strong early game
because much damage will de dealth with basic attacks.
The duration of the blind will not increase much more
so I max this ability last
From lvl 2 on you max your Toxic Shot
This is you main damage output
Harras with your Toxic Shot
not with your Blinding Dart
A lot of Teemos do this and it works for them
but not for you since you max your Blinding Dart last
You must basic attack first
then blind with Blinding Dart
then basic attack again and run
You can use your Move Quick to run away faster
This is the skill you max second
You need the movement speed to evade abilities
and stay out of the range of basic attacks
At lvl 6 11 and 16 you pic your ult Noxious Trap
Use them to slow your enemy when you chase
or when you are being chased
Where to place them
Place your Noxious Traps here:Position them in the bush at the place where
you walk through the most (most of the time the center)

Guide Top

Getting Kills

When an enemy walkes through a Noxious Trap:
- activate Move Quick and run to him
- activate Surge and Ignite
- use Blind Dart
- take the kill
Your Noxious Trap will slow them and damage them
With Blinding Dart they can't hit you at first
After that the don't have enough time to kill you
because you will kill them (thanks to Surge you are OP 1v1)
In teamfights:
- come from behind
- use Blinding Dart on the enemy carry and kill him
- run for your life
After you have ran for your life
you can come back to chase down low HP enemies who escaped

It's best to lane with a tank
He can take damage for you
while you harras your opponents
His task is to take damage
Your task is to deal damage
Don't forget to Blinding Dart their carry

Always take the farm
You are very item dependent early game

Guide Top


You start with Malady because you can deal a lot of damage with it
Magic penetration, attack speed and AP is all you need for damage
and Malady is perfect for this
Next you get Boots of Mobility for the movement speed
You need this movement speed to run towards your enemy for harrassing
And to run for ganks
Next you get Nashor's Tooth because it's another perfect item for Teemo
It gives you attack speed and AP for your basic attack
It gives you cooldown reduction, mana regen and AP for your Noxious Trap
Start with Fiendish Codex for the mana regen
As your 4th item take Rylai's Crystal Scepter
The health, the AP and the slow with your Blinding Dart
is what you need mid/late game
Rabadons Deathcap combines perfectly with your other AP items
to give you a nice amount of AP
This will make your Toxic Shot and your Noxious Trap a lot stronger
Last you can take Frozen Mallet or Madred's Bloodrazor
Take Frozen Mallet if your enemies are mostly squishy
It will give you a slow and more health
So you can take more damage and chase your opponent down
If the enemy is more tanky take Madred's Bloodrazor
It's the ultimate anti-tank item
