This is clearly both the best, most detailed guide for Teemo and the best community around the champion as well. I'm a brand new player and didn't have any issues finding someone (Kit himself even) to help me learn the game.

Hey kitten! I was wondering if you could use Phase Rush against teams with a lot of slows even if there isn't a Nasus?

Mh. You can. But it would have to be very specific match-ups.
From the top of my head I can suggest like two other match-ups that would make sense.

SETT an DARIUS maybe OLAF. The main reason why I suggest using it against nasus only is strictly due to the fact that it is 95% of your movement speed for an absurd duration there is absolutely no outrunning him or facing him in a one V one late game.

So in a matchup where there are multiple Champions running specific slow builds you would be losing out on damage for a little bit of added utility. Which is perfectly fine it's a play style try it out if you want to.

Level 1-3 to CS more effectively since the first 3 Melee minions will normally all die at the same time which prevents us from last hitting, causing us to have to do damage to one and then passive to hit all 3 at the same time.

Also good for being ganked by champions like Master Yi, Udyr, when they have no CC to pull you out of stealth at all, while dealing small damage to you, in stealth.

All in all you should always be utilizing passive, you can simply dip in an out of bushes.

Hello, for low elo do you recommend alternating the runes or only occupy one in all matches?

Sovereign Kitten (21) | June 9, 2020 11:03pm
Normally it's best to stick to one rune.
This is due to the fact that most every matchup you go up into from Iron to gold is going to be one-sided meaning the enemy isn't going to play into you like they should. They are going to INT an walk into to you. That is if you know how to play Teemo consistently without making those kinds of mistakes.

Normally in low ELO you can easily get away with building dark Harvest since most games are going to last more than 30 minutes. People will refuse to end games because they are playing a ram Style midlane.


Otherwise electrocute is usually the better option because it's a universally great Rune that goes into every single match up perfectly allowing you to still be a little bit more defensive while also bursting people late game without the necessary stacking of dark Harvest.

Hey thats the most detailed guide i have ever read. but what do you think of Frozen Mallet? I like Frozen Mallet when i am only staying on my Top island cause of the additional hp and the slow. It helps to stay alive and get away when you get ganked.

Frozen mallet is an item that died when runes shifted in season 6/7. Nobody but nostalgic players ever build it, or people who don't know the times have changed. In a general scenario it's a wasted item due to how almost every champion has gap close lock down, and on-hit being dead outside of AP.

How the hell did you even do that spreadsheet? And what the hell is the quality of this damn guide. This is, one of the best guides I've seen, and I LOVE IT. A lot of the guides on mobafire are usually useless without any notes, bad in-depth stuff, and I can't think of a guide in mobafire that includes A RUNE SPREADSHEET. 10 out of 5, best guide. Not just on teemo, but mobafire.

This is one of the best guides I've ever seen, amazing work, I cannot imagine how long that matchups spreadsheet took. just 2 general questions:
    What is your favorite Rune for Teemo?
    In general, do you go e max or q max more often?

Sovereign Kitten (21) | May 15, 2020 4:14pm
Oh I rushed that spreadsheet in about 120 hours... in 2 weeks give or take.
I still need to go back and re-format it, but the amount of time I would need to invest puts me off, I'd like a billion year vacation from doing any major changes to it xD

I am a diversity type player. I prefer all runes, for different reasons.
But if you're asking me "What runes the best in general" Electrocute since it scales well, doesn't get behind (like DH) since it doesn't require any win conditions, etc.

It's a mixture of both, I'll sometimes max Q and sometimes max E. It's really based on who you're going up against. If you're fighting fighters like Riven, Irelia, Trynda (Q) max all the way. If it's singed and really easily pokable champions with no gap close or ranged abilities,(E) max, if it's a really mobile champion or if I am playing PTA. E-W max.

That is an item you get once you've completed the supports quest.
(Attacking enemies or turrets while near allies) ^^

Honestly don't think you even read the guide. I mention most of everything you've said. He's only a counter pick pre level 6. That's tye misconceptions with people an Teemo. He does counter some champions but all it takes is a player to simply sit under their tower an lose a few farm early game an freeze to counter the counter, or simply do something like Nasus an go Aery maxed E so long as they respect you'rea little **** an let you extend an poke / cheese with a gank you're screwed. It's talked about. So is the things like stealth and champion interactions.
