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.
I get blind shot first.. mostly cause its a good harass.. and can save you in case there a lvl 1 gank... then i get toxic shot, then move quick (i try to keep move-quick always on till i get to 50% mana... then i play a little more mana conservative. after that my skill priority is shroom>tocicshot>blind>move
Summoner sells.... i choose ignite and exhaust.. mostly cause any melee champ is your bane.. a Yi will literally EAT a teemo... NOM NOM NOM (bad news) so.. blind shot.. plus exhaust = survivability plus specked into it will help out armor pen damamge what-not, i choose ignite cause i hate when an enemy gets away with like 4 health.. i save ignite for when there running away, plus.. i hate healer champs.. (taric, seraka, and mundo mostly) and ignite will murder them
Mastery, i have experimented with a lot of specs... i went from all ultility for CD and movement, all defense for survivabilty, and all damamge for total awesomeness. I use to go offense and then defense to get the dodge buff, but i stopped cause the dodge didnt seem to help me out that much. i like my build cause it lets me lvl faster than others and stay in lane with health/mana regen longer.
I try to mid as teemo... and as teemo KEEP MOVING! only last hit with Doran's shield you have a little more health but your still squishy. I get Doran's shield cause that Hp5 is better than life-steal... i don't hit minions at all till i know i can kill them... that's why i get BF sword as my second item.. i play it safe and just try to out lvl and make more money than the other team's mid.
* HARASS TECHNIQUE * (this is why i lvl toxic shot) blind shot does whatever damage.. but the poison keeps ticking health. so i stay by my turret and auto attack first then shoot of the blind shot.. this tactic will aggravate them and keep you safe.
*SHROOM* try to get blue buff all the time.. more shrooms = more chance someone can get low and die on accident (this happens for me all the time)
Anyway.. so i play pretty defensivly.. wich will make your opponent angry.. pop out of turret range every few to pop a shroom then right back in.. i try to stay in between shrooms and lay them in a line for an escape path. after a while your opponent will usually get cocky and try to kill you... make them walk over a shroom exhaust... auto attack.. blind.. auto attack then ignite probably not first blood.. but your first kill then its GG form there... hope you like my build : )
and remember.. recon teemo gives 5% crit chance!
