Summoner Spells Back to Top

Summoner Spells:


AP - Agressive:


4.png14.png gives absurd damage and thus lane pressure. Through ignite you can get kills you normally wouldn't be able to get and the ability to 100-0 someone reliably. Pick it on AP Teemo and Support Teemo - You will usually win lane and thus win the game, although you do lose tp pressure (keep that in mind for baron calls).


AD - Kiting:


4.png6.png gives great kiting potential and synergises very well with a beefy and attack speed reliant AD build. I've seen iPav take it and agree that it has excellent uses, both as an aggresive and passive summoner Spell. With it's short cooldown and perfect synergy with 3022.png, ghost is a fair alternative to ignite on AD Teemo.

(AD) - Split-Push:


4.png12.png gives you a great safety net in case of a hard lane and allows you to follow the enemys roam. However in my opinion it isn't aggressive enough and lowers your pressure on the map. You are better of getting the first blood tower rather than following the enemy. You should only pick this on AD Teemo or in very hard matchups (when inexperienced)

Second Page: AD, ADC, Jungle 
(Jungle - Go 12 into Cunning instead of Resolve, take 6312.png,6321.png,6331.png,6343.png)

Q: Why not 6164.png on AP Teemo?
A: Although it scales well with Shrooms into the lategame, we want to finish out games quickly with a lot of short burst in the midgame, so 6362.png is better.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Always on AP
    For Kiting, Darius Garen etc.

Core Items

    1 and 2 buy: Core for crazy damage and sustain powerspike
    3 and 4 buy: Good followup to increase splitpush pressure and to increase dps in teamfights
    Ending Items to make crazy late game damage - most games are over before you buy these items

Situational Items

    AP - Other Ok items Dark Seal: Delays Gunblade Powerspike too much, Lichbane: Clunky to get off and not even the best burst item, Banshees, Zhonya, Ludens, Morellos: decent situational items, but I wouldnt know what items to replace them with in the core build

This section will focus only on AP Teemo! The reason for that will be explained later on.

This build is always aplicable, easy to follow and works in every elo. The only reason I don't have Items like Ludens Echo in this build is because I don't want to replace any single Item in here.

As long as you follow this build you shouldnt run into any trouble. You can get into some trouble from Diamond3+, but I do not believe that the majority of the readers here will be in this elo. The way to play this build will be explained in other sections.

The only viable alternative build to this is iPavs AD Teemo in my opinion. If you have a heavy AP comp or you are playing against a very beefy team, his build may be better. I run AD Teemo more than AP in high elo, yet this shouldn't stop you from going this build.

More on whether to go AP or AD in the"Teemo TOP-AD or AP" section!

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Get boots, dodge his aatroxE.png, blindingdart.png him once he goes up to farm or when he aatroxQ.png
Use shrooms to kite him, as he is pretty squishy and cant heal up you should be able to kill him often.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Buy an 3001.png early and dodge her ahriseduce.png at all costs. Use your bantamtrap.png, where u think she will ahritumble.png away. Go for burst over dps.

VS

Akali

Hard

Punish her early game, buy a 2043.png, ask for ganks and buy early 1057.png against her burst, try to blindingdart.png her to prevent her own akalimota.png from happening. Use your bantamtrap.png to find her in akalismokebomb.png or use 3341.png. She is very good at sticking on you, so dont even consider fighting her without 2043.png. If she is ahead and you failed to kill her lvl 1-6 then dont. fight. her. Buy shittons of mr and stay alive!

VS

Anivia

Medium

Punish her early, try to kill her out of tower range because of her passive and dont get glacialstorm.png frostbite.png combo'd. Buy a 3001.png and use your bantamtrap.png mainly to keep up with her wave clear.
Be aware of her using crystallize.png to set up ganks for your jungler. If you dont have 4.png then dont get close to her!

VS

Annie

Hard

Poke her with blindingdart.png once she comes up to disintegrate.png a minion. Dont trade at 6, you cant beat her full combo. Play defensively and hope for ganks, as annie is highly immobile and thus easily beatable with the use of cc, which u urself lack.  Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Azir

Hard

Be aggressive early game and avoid his azirw.pngazirqwrapper.png combo at all costs. Try to catch him with your passive and bantamtrap.png, otherwise just run 2033.png and 12.pngand ask for ganks.
Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Brand

Medium

Be carefull because of his insane brandconflagration.pngbrandblaze.pngbrandfissure.pngbrandwildfire.png combo! He can litteraly one shot you. Push the wave against him and roam around when he is clearing the wave. He is somewhat like annie but definitly beatable, so ask for ganks to get rolling. Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Just dodge his feralscream.png and rupture.png.
Be carefull to not get 1 shot with his feast.png and kite him with your bantamtrap.png. Its a weird lane, where you punish his lack of mobility and bad early game to snowball the lane. If youre behind be rly rly carefull! You can build anything you like in this matchup although if you're behind early 3111.png should help.

VS

Darius

Easy

Get 3009.png and 3022.png asap and kite him. Definitly max movequick.png second and dont EVER let him dariusaxegrabcone.png you. If he dariusaxegrabcone.png you, then you are dead. Its a simple skill matchup: If you get hooked, you die, if he doesnt land it, you poke him to death. As he will reach a state of unkillableness at around 30 minutes, consider going a more AS, Splitpush heavy build and keep him from grouping.

VS

Diana

Medium

Dodge her dianaarc.pngdianateleport.png and kite her. Her burst is scary but its not that hard. Just be careful and avoid ganks, as they mean sure death thanks to her dianateleport.pngdianavortex.png
Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Annoying lane. Dodge his infectedcleavermissilecast.png and try to kill him before he gets his sadism.png. Buy an early 3123.png.

VS

Ekko

Medium

Dont let him full combo you. blindingdart.png him once he goes in and bantamtrap.png where he will probably initiate. The lane is ok though, he wont have the damage to force you out of lane early game. If youre behind then get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3136.png.

VS

Elise

Medium

Her eliseQ.png combo and full combo is rly scary but otherwise you should be fine. Always dodge her eliseE.png or you die, simple as that. Be aware of her easily beeing able to catch you offguard and run a 3155.png or get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Fiora

Easy

Dont let her fiorariposte.png yourblindingdart.png, but otherwise you should be fine. Always harass her when you can and try to avoid letting her fioraq.png you when her passive is in a good spot. Pro tip: if you go out of range of her passive, it resets and will be on your back!

VS

Gangplank

Medium

Avoid his raisemorale.png at all costs and get 2033.png agaisnt his parley.png poke. This is a skill matchup and depending on your ability to shoot his raisemorale.png and properly use your EQE you might win or lose. Grab ignite, as you will be sure to fight a lot.
3146.png is excellent. He can't outdmg your insane heal.

VS

Garen

Easy

Nothin to say, dont let him too close and rush 3022.png. He is easily kitable and no big thread.

VS

Gnar

Medium

VS

Gragas

Medium

Be aware of him gragasexplosivecask.png you into his own tower. He can easily set up ganks and/or 1 shot you. Use your blindingdart.png to prevent his gragasdrunkenrage.png and predict his gragasbarrelroll.png. Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane or just rush damage to outdmg him in a fight.

VS

Graves

Easy

Although he has a lot of burst you can usually out dmg him and he will be confused, as his auto attacks get majorly fucked up by your blindingdart.png. Trade intelligently and buy 3046.png as your 3rd item, as you will 1v1 a lot. There is a reason he isnt played that much in the top lane though.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Try to kill him early game. Kill his h28gevolutionturret.png as soon as you can and take 12.png to keep up with his split push. Be careful to not die by his ult hextechmicrorockets.png.
Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Illaoi

Easy

Abuse your movequick.png and get 3009.png. If youre good, you can always dodge everything and blindingdart.png her w illaoiw.png. If youre bad she will land every spell and you will die. Skill Matchup.

VS

Irelia

Hard

Try to avoid her 1 shotting you at level 6. Harass her early game and be careful in the mid game. Her ireliagatotsu.png + e combo has a high chance of stunning you, so blindingdart.png her once she ireliaequilibriumstrike.png.
Grab some early resistances like 3047.png and then hp with 3022.png. Grab ignite, you will 1v1 a lot.
Now that her ireliatranscendentblades.png CD got nerfed, you definitly have to use that window do call for a gank or to cheese a kill out of her

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Grab some Armor and dodge his jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.pngjarvanivcataclysm.png. As his entire kit depends on all inning you, a 3022.png and a gank should be enough to win your lane and then to stomp him for the rest of the game with your blindingdart.png.

VS

Jax

Medium

His early game is crap. You can build multiple different items, all will work against jax. blindingdart.png him when he jaxcounterstrike.png and kite him around a lot with your bantamtrap.png. Be careful in the lategame as he might just roflstomp you and keep attention to his passive aswell as his 3 aa combo on his jaxrelentlessassault.png.

VS

Jayce

Hard

Hard counter. High early game dmg so go 2033.png and 12.png. Fight around your shrooms and ask for help. Both ad and ap works against him. Dodge his E Q at all costs or you just always lose lane.

VS

Karthus

Medium

Dodge his laywaste.png and keep attention to your health because of fallenone.png. Get 3009.png, early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Harass him early and keep attention to his forcepulse.png, dont forget his riftwalk.png mana cost gets rly high with some time. Get 3102.png and build as, as his ap dmg will always out-do yours, so you need consistent trading dmg. If you dont win early his late will fck you up. Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

VS

Katarina

Easy

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Not much to say, be aware of her beeing able to 1 shot you, get barrier and punish her early. Dont stand next to minions when she bouncingblades.png.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Kayle is a better version of Teemo - Or thats how it feels.blindingdart.png her every time she goes in and try to kite her. Dont trade if you have to and just farm with your bantamtrap.png. You can try to all in her with your passive and 14.png at level 1-2.
Time your burst with her judicatorintervention.png. If you decide to go full burst then u'll have to surprise her out of stealth as she will just easily block all of your dmg.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Keep track of his stun and trade with him a lot in the early game. Dont let him kennenbringthelight.png you or you will lose trades over time. Ward a lot, as he can easily setup ganks.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like Brand and Annie, keep aware of her cooldowns and ask for help as soon as she initiates you. Get 21.png against her all in's and rly stack mr.

VS

Lissandra

Hard

She can easily setup Ganks and cc you for days.
Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane! Also rush 3111.png to prevent her cc and to somehow survive. I recommand an as build with the 3136.png, as the 3022.png helps kite a lot and the 3091.png is awesome too.

VS

Lulu

Hard

She is a rly annoying matchup. Her lulue.png luluq.png outbursts you and with her lulur.png she can easily 1v1 you. Her luluw.png feels like a better blindingdart.png and her passive is more or less a free toxicshot.png. Fight early but dont forget minion aggro. Then focus just on pushing out the wave and dont figth her its not going to work. Although she has a lot of utility she lacks hard cc or escapes so a gank might work out. 3060.png is a rly fun item, which for some reason works a lot (she cant rly clear without the magic damage)

VS

Malphite

Easy

Farm lane. Nothing happening. Get 1083.png and 12.png and get yourself ready to fight him midgame. Dont let him seismicshard.png you, especially if he has 1056.png and be careful at lvl 6, because of his easy gank setup with his ufslash.png

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like all the other short range mages. Avoid him and try to keep up with his pushing.

VS

Maokai

Easy

Harass him and play super aggro. 3124.png+3091.png are excellent and he will only begin to ruin your life at midgame-lategame. 3111.png are a must buy.

VS

Mordekaiser

Easy
blindingdart.png him every time he goes close to you with his mordekaisermaceofspades.png. Avoid his mordekaisersyphonofdestruction.png and farm yourself through. Try to kill him with 14.png and your 3022.png.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Just deny his siphoningstrikenew.png with your blindingdart.png. Build doesnt matter rly.

VS

Nautilus

Easy

Same as maokai.

VS

Orianna

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with her push, you cant do too much.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

One of the hardest matchups.Buy 1029.png and 2003.png early game and then buy 3047.png and 2033.png with 12.png to survive the lane and go an ad-ish build. His passive will fck you up and his entire kit is desinged to screw you over. Try to get farm and call for ganks - you will outscale him.

VS

Renekton

Medium
blindingdart.png when he renektonpreexecute.png to prevent the dmg and kite the living hell out of him. Be careful of his burst dmg and rush 3009.png+3022.png.

VS

Riven

Medium
blindingdart.png when she all in you and play around your bantamtrap.png. BE CAREFUL! She can 1 shot you, so you need to be careful, get early armor and then you will be fine and should be able to 1v1 her just like renekton.

VS

Rumble

Medium

As his rumbleflamethrower.png got buffed you should Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane! Try not to get rumbleflamethrower.png or rumblegrenade.png to often and beware of ganks. Abuse his passive and poke him down when he is out of position.
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with her push, you cant do too much.

VS

Ryze

Hard

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with his push, you cant do too much.
I hate this matchup. Try to kill him early but even then he will screw you over. One of the hardest ones i know.

VS

Shen

Easy

Just like Maokai and Nautilus. Dodge his shenshadowdash.png and splitpush when he shenstandunited.png to safe someone. I prefer taking 14.png for when the jungler comes to stop your splitpush.

VS

Singed

Easy

Just like all the other tanks. He will annoy you a lot and if he proxy's you cant stop him. Late game he is going to fuck you up, so the game is in his control, not yours. Everything you do wont rly matter but atleast you dont typically lose the lane. You can, if he is bad. Poke the hell out of him and make his life is miserable, but as only one tricks play singed, he is definitly able to annoy you yourself a lot aswell.

VS

Sion

Medium

Just like all the other tanks. He will annoy you a lot and if he proxy's you cant stop him. Late game he is going to fuck you up, so the game is in his control, not yours. Everything you do wont rly matter but atleast you dont typically lose the lane. Just dodge his Ult at all costs and pop his deathscaressfull.png to deny dmg. Dodging is key and if you are bad at it you might suffer.

VS

Swain

Hard

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with her push, you cant do too much.
I hate this matchup. Try to kill him early but even then he will screw you over. One of the hardest ones i know. Get 3123.png and pray he wont screw you up too much.

VS

Syndra

Hard

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with her push, you cant do too much.
I hate this matchup. Try to kill him early but even then he will screw you over. One of the hardest ones i know.

VS

Trundle

Medium

This one is actually slightly harder. Just like all the other tanks, he will annoy you a lot and if he proxy's you cant stop him. Late game he is going to fuck you up, so the game is in his control, not yours. Everything you do wont rly matter but atleast you dont typically lose the lane. Still, try to control the lane in the early game and q him when he will deal the most dmg.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Be aware of level 1 all ins, and buy 3022.png to kite him. He is easily kitable and cant deal dmg because of your blindingdart.png, so you shouldnt have any problems. Go 14.png and harass the shit out of him.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with her push, you cant do too much.
Try to kill him early and expand your lead based on that. blindingdart.png prevents pickacard.png so abuse that.

VS

Urgot

Hard

The bane of my existence. Dodge his urgotplasmagrenade.png or you lose. Nothing you do matters. Rush 3009.png.

VS

Veigar

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, you cant do too much. Dont let him Q too much and snowball other lanes, although that might be hard to do.
I hate this matchup. Try to kill him early but even then he will screw you over.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with his push, you cant do too much.
I hate this matchup. He can poke the hell out of you, so try to avoid as many spells as you can. Rush 3009.png. Try to kill him early but even then he will screw you over.

VS

Viktor

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!

Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with his push, you cant do too much.
I hate this matchup. He can poke the hell out of you, so try to avoid as many spells as you can. Rush 3009.png. Try to kill him early but even then he will screw you over. He is very familiar to vel koz and jsut as much of a pain in the ass.

VS

Yasuo

Medium
Use your bantamtrap.png because he will yasuoE.png through the minions. Dont let him yasuoW.png your blindingdart.png, time it correctly. Throw a bantamtrap.png on yourself when he yasuoR.png you. Your toxicshot.png will prock his passive so time your aa with his passive.
Get 3047.png and 3157.png aswell as 3143.png, as they all stack very well against him.

VS

Yorick

Medium

Wohooo Yorick rework! He is no longer one of the hardest counters to Teemo! You can buy anything you want, just be careful about his yorickw.png, he behaves a lot like 75.png with his yorickq.png so just poke and zone him a lot.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

Get early mr like3001.png and hp with 3211.png or 3136.png as well as a 3157.png to survive the lane!
Just like any other short range mage, try to keep up with his push, you cant do too much.
He can poke the hell out of you, so try to avoid as many spells as you can. Rush 3009.png.

Introduction Back to Top

My name is OneTwoTrickFour aka TheTeemoplayer69 and I've been maining Teemo since Season 2. I was the best Teemo in Europe and Challenger for a small time. Right now I'm climbign back to it from Diamond 1 (21.06.2016)

Teemo has always been a versatile, fun and interactive champion, who could be picked as an underdog pick and yet still succeed. Riot hasn't been nice to our badger, but thankfully Teemo has been able to stay on top with his simple but effective kit and his ability to itemize, no matter what role or seosen.

AP  Teemo is the best standing by the patch 7.12. I shall be covering other roles and their build paths, playstyle and unique facts about their kits.

Starting with this small Introduction, I hope you will enjoy the guide, give it a fair rating and if you have questions, you won't be too shy to ask me^^

General Info and Mindset (Skippable) Back to Top

17.png Is a weird phenomenom by himself. He has been repeadatly nerfed and stomped to the ground. He is countered by a lot of champions and still noone likes to lane against him. He has the cutest design and skins, yet all the people get instantly tilted, as soon as they see Teemo. So why is that?

17.png true function is his ability to completly tilt and destroy the calmness of the enemy.
His entire Kit is extremly basic. Everyone knows how Teemo in general works. The Beauty is in using this simple Kit into a power, that makes the enemy swear and curse your entire family.

17.png is made in a way, which sets him up for disaster. Thanks to power creep and mobility creep you would think he was left behind in the dust. He has no exceptional utility. He has no burst like 45.png. His DPS isnt anything noteworthy compared to 24.png and his blind as a cc is laughable. You could call Teemo a master of none, but at the same time he is a jack of all trades.

With your simplicity and ability to perform every role, you essentially have the best basis you can have to win any matchups. Yes, teemo suffers a lot against multiple champions. Yes, he will never be the top of the food chain. But he will always be the weird pick, who's power everyone underestimates.

Now with season 7 you want to maximize your damage output and burst by building him full AP, thus often having the highest damage dealt on champions. AS Teemo is still ok, but I feel like you can dominate your lane way more with AP Teemo.

So, get ready to tilt your enemy and let them run away with 10 HP, only to slowly die. Which is obviously the best feeling you can have. In the following chapters you will see, how I try to enter my opponents mind and how you too, will soon be able to beat those 80.png, with the most functional and yet simple kit in league.

Early Game - Laning Back to Top

Step 1: 0-5 min:


Buy 1056.png2003.png and head to top. Level E and give your jungler, if needed, a leash. Let the enemy push into you by only focusing on cs and not attacking the enemy. This will prevent a gank. If you have ignite and feel confident in a 1v2, focus on cs and aa the enemy every time you arent csing, but be careful, Minions deal a lot of damage early game! The best way to harass is with AA-Q-AA, it will prock 6362.png

Ward at 3:00 in the tribush (blueside) or lanebush (redside), to prevent an early gank from the bot side starting jungler.
At 3:30 you should be 1v2ing the enemy jungler or killing the enemy with 14.png

Step 2: 5-15 min:


Farm for either 3145.pngor3144.png and come back to your lane.

Try this trick for a kill:
Push the wave out to the enemy tower, go back, place a teemorcast.pngwhere the enemy is likely to go through, kill the unsuspecting enemy.

You should either push very hard to give your jungler some breathing room, or stay at your tower and zone the enemy from cs. I recommand pushing as it is better in soloq.

By the 10 Minute mark, the first blood Tower should be dead and you should be rly farmed or with a first blood, prioritize the farming though.

I always take the Herald solo as it spawns, as it gives you a free tier 2 push with next to no risk at all.

You can now push for the second tier Tower with 3146.png or roam mid or laneswap with bot to get first tier tower bot.

Mid Game - Split Pushing Back to Top

Step 3: 15-35 min:


Buy 3364.png for more vision control and easier assasination. Ensure Vision with teemorcast.png. Splitpush as much as possible and force the JGL top. Get as many kills as possible. Use the trick I've discribed in the chapter beforehand. Roam mid lane and push those towers down or to get the enemy dragon. Keep flexible, adapt to the situation and try to take as many objectives as possible. Kill the jungler and take his buff with teemorcast.png and AA-Q-AA (they easily get surprised with sufficient map control). Control the dragons and barons, Teemo is excellent at securing them through teemorcast.png.
If you're behind, stay in lane, farm the crap out of the lane and splitpush!! Dont try to fight, Teemo gets shit on by almost everything!

Late Game - Map Control Back to Top

Step 4: 35-??? min:


Why are you here? All you can do is teamfight and use teemorcast.png to secure barons. Your lvl 3teemorcast.png has a very high range so you can throw it into the baron pit or a minion wave for massive aoe burst. Use your blindingdart.png to keep the adc blinded and bantamtrap.png for objective control. Dont show up botlane, because it will instantly mean, that the enemy can do baron!


Most important tip:


Dont. Get. Caught. 9/10 Games in the late game are decided purely based on people getting caught! Leave the danger zones and keep your Wards/Shrooms up.

Using your Passive Back to Top

teemopassive.png Is Teemos most fun, yet hardest to use ability.


Your passive is used in two ways: Escaping and catching. Some Matchups litteraly cant attack you during your stealth, so if you stealth in time you can completely avoid a gank!

As this doesnt happen too often, you have one primary goal on how to use your passive: Killing, when they dont expect you to. People are used to seeing the enemy. If they can't see you, you dont exist in their eyes. So use your passive in the following trick.


This trick is the main way I've won 80% of my games!:


Push the wave out to the enemy tower, go back, place a teemorcast.pngwhere the enemy is likely to go through, kill the unsuspecting enemy. Easy as that :p This trick is easiest with AP Teemo, but it is definitly possible with the AS-Variant of the build.
Do not forget that your passive gives you AS which may give you an edge in a 1vs1 assasination.




How to shroom Back to Top

There are 3 Kind of teemorcast.png:


- Aggresive Shrooms

- Defensive Shrooms

- Utility Shrooms


You use Aggresive Shrooms in trading and to slow enemys. Throw these into minions to guarantee the damage or on you if youre close to a champion (pulled in by a 122.png) I use these a lot, as shrooms are easily killed by oracles or die because time ticks out and are thus only useful for their slow and damage in 1v1's.

Defensive Shrooms are used to Prevent ganks and to scare the enemy off. They will walk around them and probably get damaged by even more auto attacks in the meantime. It's very useful to place these teemorcast.png in anticipation of a gank on the gank path, as it not only will give you vision of the area and prevent a ward, but if the enemy jungler goes for the gank he might die in a 2v1 againt you!

Utility Shrooms are basicly warding shrooms. Place those into the enemy Jungle and try to annoy the jungler by always keeping awareness of him. Your teemorcast.png only last 5 Minutes, so dont waste shrooms on passages, where the jungler might never come! Also shroom bushes, even if you know there isnt anyone. Just to go sure for the future.

Where to shroom Back to Top

This is from the #1 Teemo Guide on Lolking.


Here are four general tips:

  1. Focus on Chokepoints
  2. Be aware of Skuttle Crab accidently hitting the shrooms in the river
  3. Get Shrooms as deep as possible in the enemy jungel
  4. Shrooms are a strong tool to 1v2 the jungler if he comes to gank(defensive shrooms)

Teemo TOP - AD or AP? Back to Top


Teemo MID Back to Top

As you might have seen in my matchups, Teemo mid isn't effective and is very hard to pull off.


Teemo gets countered by a lot of mindlaners. The build I posted below is hard to pull off because of control wards and sweepers. If you do play Teemo in the midlane then you should usually still max E and try to roam. If the enemy is a hard poke mage then you can max Q and poke them out .Your build should be something like this:

1056.png, 3020.png, 3151.png, 3135.png, 3157.png, 3285.png, 3089.png

3146.png is a very solid first item if youre not under huge pressure!

You typically would want to go 12-18, grabbing 6362.png and basic AP Teemo runes. However 6164.png isn't that bad if you max Q, because this is a very AP heavy glass cannon shroom build, which is the only time you can efficiently use the mastery on. Your shrooms do deal a lot of damage and combined with your q burst you may be able to cheese some kills out of the enemy laner.
Take 14.pngfor an aggresive lane, 21.png for a burst lane and 12.pngagainst something like 4.png.


Weird alternatives ive seen:


3027.png not good - you lose mid game pressure and the stats arent that useful.
3116.png again not needed, only scales of Q, terrible Synergy with build.
3100.png too clunky - can be used against squishy Teams in loe elo.

Teemo JGL Back to Top

Teemo Jungle is my secondary pick in ranked.

He should be Played as a farm jungler who split pushes or teamights in the background as a secondary ADC.


You can solo dragon and herald without any problems. You deal obscure damage and have nice burn thanks to 1419.pngYou should in my opinion always go bloodrazor as runic echoes is weird to use and build around. Nonetheless I will post a build for runic Teemo down below. Teemo Jungle is excellent at Closing out games, Splitpushing, providing damage and assasinating. His ganks are rather poor, but basic aa's aplying red buff are more than enough till master elo, trust me.
Always start with hunters machete, I prefer 2031.png over 2009.png, as it offers more long time value and you only need those 2 charges for your first clear. With proper kiting you can clear the jungle while only needing 1 refillable potion charge.



Your route should be:


Red-Blue-Gromp-Skuttle-Gank or

Blue-Gromp-Wolves-Red-Gank Top


Good builds would be:


Bloodrazor: 1419.png3006.png3022.png3091.png3146.png3046.png3124.png or 3085.png, going full glass cannon and trying to snowball the early game

Runic Echoes:1414.png3020.png3151.png3115.png3146.png3135.png, trying to oneshot the adc and providing the AP dmg for the team. I prefer Bloodrazor

Use proper kiting, spacing and your blindingdart.png  to minimize the damage of the camps. You can do blue buff without taking 1 hit! If you want to see another good high elo Teemo Jungle player check out Hikashikun!


Teemo SUP Back to Top

Teemo support is a lot of fun and has huge amounts of damage combined with his Q and ult for a support. Together with Liandrys he has potential to be a tier 2 support. Dont forget to max Q and not E!

If you like a challenge or want play with friends in a normal game, your build should look as follows:

3092.png3020.png2045.png3151.png and then everything is optional. Go for more AP dmg. Some options may be:

3146.png3285.png3100.png3135.png.Try to go for the most cost effective items, usually those are 3165.png and 3135.png.

Be careful, as most supports will either catch, kill, poke or outsustain you. IF you're lucky and you can poke the enemy adc with your maxed out q. Try to go for all ins with 14.png.

Teemo support is weird and I only suggest picking it when you know you have a lane dominant adc such as 202.png or 51.png.

Teemo ADC Back to Top

This was done with the help of Sosseslakt! He is an adc Teemo main and currently Diamond 1 on the EUW server. All credit goes to him and I will be quoting him, as he is far more experienced with adc Teemo than I am!


Playstyle:


"Depends on the enemy, you wanna play safe as fuck against anything that can kill you"


Wincondition:


"Running fast and hitting things. You are the carry, you can't be spliting. You stay on the backline and hit tanks, since with bork and rageblade they melt. Also nothing except super burst can outdmg you so keep looking for 1v1s"


Why would you play ADC Teemo?:


"Teemo as a champion offers a ton of vision control and pick potential, while he still is a backline threat with tons of self peel. He has a great buildpath which can make him both a tank buster and
an assasin. Teemo can easily adapt to the game with his diverse build options"


What would you build on ADC Teemo?:


"1055.png -> 3153.png -> 3124.png -> 3091.png -> 3085.png -> 3139.png, you can build Mercs against AP heavy teams and Swiftness boots against the rest. Consider grabbing a 3022.png into 3085.png against ad Teams, but botrk into rageblade are the core!"


Who is your favourite SUP to play with?:


"267.png allows kill presure in lane even against stuff like caitlyn braum.
Shes my favourite support to lane with by far. She gives sustain too which teemo really needs.
Yeah anything that can speed you up is really insane to play with, like 43.png or 26.png"


Thanks a lot Sosseslakt for your help! If it didnt work then blame him not me q.q I haven't talked to him in a very long time so this section might not be completly up to date with patch 7.12

Teemo Combos and Synergies Back to Top

69.png gets her cassiopeiatwinfang.png triggered by your poision.

53.png can pull people into your bantamtrap.png, just like 64.png with his blindmonkrkick.png, or 106.png with his volibearq.png and 122.png with his dariusaxegrabcone.png.

Any Stealth Champ like 29.png or 35.png can help you be even more annoying.

27.png is perfect for a clown fiesta.

51.png can put caitlynyordletrap.png on your shrooms for double effectiveness.

202.png is an actually good combo, just because you deal an insane amount of damage together and thus guarantee kill pressure under any scenario.

All of these are just goofy recommandations, as 17.png is more of a solo champ and he doesnt really synergise with anything x)

When you play with a Teemo you should try on building a catch/control teamcomp with a strong botlane, as it fits his playstyle and the Teemo wont be able to help out the botlane. Winning in the midgame is more important than having a solid lategame with Teemo.


Teemo for Beginners Back to Top

Teemo is one of the most beginner friendly champions in the game!

His kit is one of the simplest ones and he is probably garen level easy for a beginner.

People dont punish you for beeing squishy and you can buy any item and still find great success!
If youre new to the game or new to Teemo, then i would definitly recommend you to play him, using the tricks you learned from this guide.

People might hate you for picking him, but especially for learnign top lane he is like the ashe of bot lane.
Good Luck with the simple, yet fun champion, he will definitly teach you a lot about the game,  csing and map awerness! You cant be called a good player, before you can cs, so if you dont play adc Teemo is the choice to go.^^

I recommand the very simple AP TOP Burst build (Check the build up there), as it is easy to get a grasp on and has the most satisfying damage otuput. Practice easier matchups like 23.png or 86.png by counterpicking before you start maining teemo and even picking him vs 80.png.

Stream Back to Top

I stream at twitch.tv/theteemoplayer69, where I try to teach you how to Teemo and how to meme.

Im currently on an unranked to challenger stream, but usually I play on my main account.
I hope I can see you there, I love chat-interaction and talking a lot, so please say hi if you're ever there!



Final Words Back to Top

I hope you enjoyed this Guide and now know how to survive in the tough season 7.

Teemo isn't the strongest champion, but with sufficient base knowledge and map control you too can reach challenger!


If you find any rly bad grammar mistakes or points you disaprove with, meantion them in the comments and I will be sure to update and improve my guide! Dont be shy to ask quesitons, as I will know I forgot something this way and can thus add it to complete this in-depth guide!

Good luck, have fun and most importantly: ENJOY THE GAME! ^^
