Hello and welcome to my Teemo build,

This is my first build, WOOT!

Guy's I have to be honest, Teemo was my main champion, and I, personally think Teemo is one of the best champions there is.

1 thing :
Please don't dislike this because u have a Teemo build and think yours is better. Just ignore this one. Also, if u don't like the guide, please just try to not dislike it, and give it a try.

A few things :
- If u have any questions about this build, the runes, or any other thing about the build, feel free to add me to your LoL. My name is LegendaryDragoon.
- If u like the guide, and it works, please Like it.

I thank you all for your time, and i hope u have some nice winnings!
I will keep this Build up-to-date.

Pros / Cons


+ Easy escape using W and R
+ Easy farming with Hurricane
+ Shrooms -> Wards, slow and lot's of damage
+ Living ward : Teemo can go into his 'Camo Mode' So noone can see him, functioning as a living ward
+ Can block 2 attacks from melee if using Q


- Squishy in early game
- Shrooms / Teemo's passive can be seen by Vision Ward / Oracle's Elixir
- Easy to counter
- Squishy in teamfights if not protected

If Teemo stands still and takes no actions for 2 seconds, he becomes stealthed indefinitely. After leaving stealth, Teemo gains the Element of Surprise, increasing his attack speed by 40% for 2 seconds.

This is a great passive! I made lot's of kills with this passive, while standing, just on the ground. They walk right next to you. You place a shroom and start engaging. You will win this battle, and if u don't, the Toxic Shot and Noxious Trap will kill the enemy for sure.

Obscures an enemy's vision with a powerful venom, dealing damage to the target unit and causing all attacks to miss for the duration. Deals 80/125/170/215/260 (+0.8 AP) magic damage and causes the target to miss all of their attacks for 1.5/1.75/2/2.25/2.5 seconds.

I max this as second, because it deals loads of damage + it give's the enemy a blind wich counts for 2 hits. I always start with this when I engage an enemy. So, my tip : When u are low hp, and want to run away from a fast Garen, Blinding Dart that B*tch!

Passive: Teemo's Movement Speed is increased by 10/14/18/22/26% unless he has been damaged by an enemy champion or turret in the last 5 seconds. Active: Teemo sprints, gaining twice his normal bonus for 3 seconds. This bonus is not lost when struck.

This is a great skill, wich give's Teemo a escape and chase modus. I use this to run away from enemy's, when they still chase me, i run trough my shrooms to slow and harm them. Also, when i'm chasing an enemy, i use Flash and this ability to follow him and hunt him down.

Teemo's basic attacks poison their target, dealing 10/20/30/40/50 (+0.4 AP) magical damage upon impact and 6/12/18/24/30 (+0.10 AP) magical damage each second for 4 seconds.

This is it. This is THE MOST important skill. Make sure to max this first! If u are low hp, and u see he will own you, just hit him once or twice, he'll die sooner then u think!

Uses a stored mushroom to place a trap that detonates if an enemy steps on it, spreading poison to nearby enemies that slows movement speed by 30/40/50% and deals 200/400/600 (+0.8 AP) magic damage over 4 seconds. Traps last 10 minutes, Teemo can store a maximum of 3 traps on his at once.

The best Ultimate i've ever seen. It's a ward, slow and damage in one. If u have Liandry's Torment, these will do lot's of damage.

Summoner Spells

My choises

Flash Ignite

Information :
Flash is a good way to escape for Teemo. Even if he uses W, he is still kind of slow. So the thing u can do is : use Flash. It will help u to avoid getting killed. This is my recommended Summoner Spell.

Ignite is the best way u can kill somebody. With your Toxic Shot and Ignite u can easilly kill enemy's.

Teleport this can help u getting to your turret faster. Also, if your team is in a teamfight, and u have to go back to the fountain, u can use teleport to go to a shroom. Here u can gank the enemy team together with your team. I do not recommend this, but it is still a good summoner spell.

Ghost is a good way to escape from enemy's. Using Ghost and Move Quick together will get u fast to the target u want to get to. (Also a good choice)

Exhaust I don't really recommend this, because if teemo uses Move Quick he can follow every champion. I just want to say that Exhaust can be used to downgrade another Teemo's Attack speed.

Heal is a pretty good summoner spell. But i don't use it. Because i think there is too much 'waiting time' to heal again. Making this skill kind of useless. For beginners -> good summoner spell.

Clarity DO NOT PICK THIS! This is the worst Summoner Spell u can actually take. Teemo almost never run's out of mana. If u do, get Blue Buff!

Revive Pretty decent summoner spell, but not good if u are in teamfights. If u die, and u are still a beginner, and accidently use this skill, u can get killed.

Smite DO NOT PICK THIS FOR SURE! Teemo is not a jungler! So don't try to jungle him!

Clairvoyance is not a good summoner spell. It's useless for Teemo. Teemo has his Noxious Trap wich he can place everywhere. These will function as wards, and u will not need this spell to see the part of the map.

Cleanse is also a pretty decent summoner spell. It comes very handy when u get ignited or exhausted.

Recommended one's :
- Flash
- Ignite
- Teleport
- Ghost
- Heal
- Revive
- Cleanse

Not Recommended one's :
- Clairvoyance
- Smite
- Clarity
- Exhaust

-Rec- Greater Quintessence of Ability Power With these, Teemo Does more damage with his Toxic Shot.
-Opt- Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed Give's Teemo more movement speed. Great when trying to follow an enemy.

Mark of Attack Speed Is used to give Teemo more attack speed. Remember : -More attack speed = More damage in less time.- Now, that's what we really want.

Glyph of Ability Power These are used to give Teemo even more Ability Power.

Seal of Armor These can be very helpfull while fighting against melee's. U will get less damage and it will help u killing the other team.

Let's talk about the items.

Sorcerer's Shoes are bought for the magic penetration. U will need them to gain more speed. U get +45 movement speed and 15 magic penetration. This will help you killing enemy's.

Malady This item give's u more ability power, needed for your skills Noxious Trap, Blinding Dart and Toxic Shot. It will also give u more Attack Speed, wich is very nice to have. U will kill your enemy even faster. Your basic attack will deal 25% of your Ability Power. So u will hit alot!

Runaan's Hurricane This is the item we want. It give's u Attack speed, and it's good for farming. It's passive is just great! When u want to hit a minion, your arrows (darts) will hit 3 to 4 minions at once. Making major farm possible. -*WARNING*- : THIS ITEM'S PASSIVE CAN ONLY WORK ON RANGED CHAMPIONS!

Rabadon's Deathcap Give's u 120 ability power and increases your ability power by 25%, this is good because if we have much Ability Power, our Noxious Trap, Toxic Shot and Blinding Dart will be able to do even more damage.

Liandry's Torment give's health, magic penetration, ability power and make's our Noxious Trap's INSANE! It will make the Shrooms more slowing and more damaging. So if an enemy runs away from u and run's into this shroom, he will die if he's on low health.

-Opt- Nashor's Tooth give's u attack speed, ability power and more magic penetration. This is a good item, because it also give's u 20% cooldown reduction.

-Rec- Rylai's Crystal Scepter give's u ability power and health. It give's extra slow to other enemy's who walk into your Noxious Trap. I recommend this item because if it slows, it deals damage!

-Opt- Mejai's Soulstealer Give's u a bit ability power. Per kill u get 2 stacks on it. 4 Ability power / Stack. An assist will give u 1 stack, so u will get 4 Ability power. I only recommend this item if you have alot of kills and assists already. If u know u are too OverPowered to be killed. Warning : If u die, u will lose 8 stacks.

Wards (Shrooms)

Good places to place shrooms are :

    -Both Blue Buffs
    -Both Red Buffs
    -Middle of the walking way, Since Sumonners stick to their minions. Once the minions walk in, the Summoner get's hitted to.

These shrooms are wards, so if you have blue, you just place them everywhere u can! It costs lot's of mana, that's why Teemo has to have Blue Buff. Blue Buff doesn't only give u alot of mana, it also provides Cooldown Reduction. Your Noxious Trap will cooldown even faster!

Team Work

Now, we all know Teemo is very squishy, that's why he needs to get great teamwork. His team has to 'protect' him, so he can't die. It's one of the best champion's u can ever play against, so be aware.

The game is always about teamwork.

A often asked Question :
When do I know when I got a good team?
Well, u know when u have a good team when they buy lot's of wards. Wards make u win the game, it gives u vision.

The best way to farm with Teemo is maxing Toxic Shot and buying Runaan's Hurricane. With this, Teemo will overfarm all other players, and Teemo will be overleveled. Also he will get much more items.

When u have enough farm,
-Buy all the Elixir's you can find, these cannot make u squishy, they will only help u.

Tips when playing against a Teemo

- Buy a Vision Ward or buy Oracle's Elixir.
- Try to engage with a team, only then he is the most hurtable.
- When walking into his shroom, get out of there as fast as u can! Teemo and his team have seen you, and they will come to hunt you down!
- Try to avoid him as much as u can =).
- Don't be stupid and don't attack him under a turret, even if u kill him and u can walk away, his
Toxic Shot will kill u if u are not a tanky one.
- How do I say this? RUN RUN RUN!!!!

Guide Top

Playing against a jungler

If u are Teemo and the opposite team has a jungler, make sure to have your Noxious Trap unlocked as fast as u can! When u have it, place it in all the bushes around u, so ganks aren't possible.

If u see they have a jungler, like Lee Sin or Rengar, make sure to 'Invade' their jungle to Red Buff Because the opposite team will help them to get this buff, when they're here, they are very low hp, so u can own them with your team who has full hp.

Teemo is a very good champion, and when u are just a beginner, i recommend u to buy him as soon as u can. Maybe it will be a bit hard in the beginning, but once u learn to know him, you'll kick some (BEEB). I just played another Match with him, I won. My score : 18/3/10. Pretty decent? Don't u think?

Good luck,
and have fun playing Teemo!
