Basics Of Playing Teemo.
Hello everyone, this is MikeScherrer here and I want to give you a quick rundown of how to effectively play Teemo. He is such a simple champ once you get the play him a lot. He is by far my favorite champ to play because he is so underestimated with how much damage he does.
HE MAY LOOK CUTE...........BUT DON'T UNDERESTIMATE HIS BLOWGUN!
Anyways the way I like to build him is strictly AP, since his abilities scale off of Magic.
Now I am aware there are dozens of ways to build and play Teemo. But this is my personal favorite.
I used to build his AD up to about 170 AD and around 85-100 AP, and I never had too much success as that build so I switched it up and followed one of my friends' builds and i changed it up to my own build and this is the way I always play Teemo.
By about the 20 minute mark i want my AP to at least 230 AP on a good Teemo game, otherwise I feel as if I'm behind in the match.
I usually always build my AP first then I move into the direction of movement speed and attack speed.
By the 40 minute mark you wanna be close to about 500 AP or more, and usually on a full AP build such as this you should have about 560 AP without baron.
If you have baron with this full build then you'll be at 600 at least and 1.8 attack speed where you should be doing some crazy crazy crazy damage.
Start Of The Game.
With Teemo, when you're in lane Bot, Top, or Mid, don't be overly aggressive, especially in mid, if you know you're at an advantage, then feel free the bully your opponents a little. Always conserve your mana unless you have Blue Bluff. It's also important to farm minions as much as you can.
IF YOU DON'T FARM MINIONS....IT MEANS NO GOLD!
PRACTICE LAST HITTING THE MINIONS.
I always strive to be ahead of the opponent in CS, never so much in kills, i'll be agressive and poke but not to the point where i risk getting killed.
I literally am 75% of the time the guy with the least deaths on the team.
REMEMBER FOLKS.....WHEN YOU'RE DEAD, YOU CAN'T MAKE PLAYS.
Make sure if you're at a disadvantage, don't be afraid the hug your tower and farm the minions, if your tower takes some damage it's not that big of a deal, ask for ganks or get a blue bluff.
Always have your map nicely warded too, map coverage is always important with Teemo cause this build doesn't have a lot of armor, Magic Res. or health, stay alert of the map and try to get a sense of where your opponents are located.
PUSH THOSE TURRENTS......BUT PLAY SMART!
If your team has the first set of enemy turrents down and lanes pushed, then you have to group up mid and push mid, make to stay together.
In team fights you wanna stand back and just use your Q and auto attack the opponents, also it's also nice to lay down those mushrooms in lanes with with do SOOOOOOOOO much damage to enemy players and minions.
Never try to tank with Teemo with this build, otherwise you'll be dead in 5 seconds, just stand back let your team tank and go to work on the enemies.
It's always important to lay down mushrooms in common paths where people run, in the tri brushes, any type of side brush, middle of the lane, and in the river.
Mushrooms are nice because they act as a ward and they can reveal enemies in the brush and they do so much damage when people step on them, lay down as much as you possibly came, trust me, they could be a difference maker in games.
In late game when you have a full Teemo build you basically still just stand back and go to work on opponents. Lay down as many mushrooms in lane as you can which makes enemies to push lanes, and always stay out of enemy range and use the auto attack by simply right clicking on any opponent you want.
There isn't a whole much to say about him. Buy him for 1350 IP points, he's a cheap powerful champ, give him a try and you'll learn to fall in love with the champ like I have.
FEEL FREE TO ADD ME
Take care guys!
This is a proven build for Teemo in my opinion. At the end I always end with 509 Ability Power and 1.824 Attack Apeed along with about 3400 HP with the Warmogs Armor. I have carried games like a recent 31-7-11 victory. Lay down dem shrooms and you'll be set to go.
