Going Mid with Teemo: A Very Swift Guide

For the second time, Teemo becomes my favorite champion. He's pretty much nasty, requires speed-clicking, proper movement and strategic placement of shrooms. Gotta love those shrooms. Anyway, the main force of my so-called 'guide' is his attack speed. Watching enemies die by his Toxic Shot is an outstanding pleasure.

Let me divide this post in few categories and see what our Teemo can actually do.

Keep on smiling you little bastard.


Assuming you are level 30 and have access to Tier 3 runes, you'll need to get these babies:

- YELLOW: Greater Seal of Alacrity (Attack Speed, to blast the enemy with a quick poison shots)
- BLUE: Greater Glyph of Potency (Ability Power, to power-up the shrooms and the Toxic Shot)
- RED: Greater Mark of Insight (Magic Penetration FTW)
- QUINT: Greater Quintessence of Insight (Yes, even more Magic Penetration)


I usually go by this order, but sometimes depends on the gameplay or the team, but still, the essence of the build are these items:

Doran's Blade (my starting item)

Boots of Speed -> Dagger - > Berserker's Greaves
Zeal -> Phantom Dancer

So, we're now pretty much good to go with our Attack Speed. Next, is the weapon that will slow the enemies:

Phage, which optionally can be upgraded to Frozen Mallet. Not always necessary, but it's quite useful. Next, we need something to power-up our shrooms, Teemo's deadliest weapon.

The shrooms hit hard enough by themselves. But, they feed on AP (Ability Power), so we need to do something about that.Fiendish Codex gives you a Ability Power (Shroom Power!), Cooldown Reduction (Shroom Spam!) and Mana Regeneration (Even faster Shroom Spam!). Than, we build the Codex into Nashor's Tooth, making our hybrid Teemo powerful enough to unleash his venomous anger everywhere on the map.

After we're done with these items, our little Teemo can do his job properly. You can even make him even more annoying with Life Steal items like Hextech Gunblade and Stark's Fervor. To get Teemo more into the hybrid manner, I suggest buying a Guinsoo's Rageblade.


I use the masteries below, so check out the screenshot. My summoner's spells of choice are Ignite and Flash.
