Teemo is an ability power auto-attack focused top lane champion. The main goal when playing Teemo is to be aggressive in the early laning phase and use his range and poke to his advantage. He has a very unique playstyle, being able to turn invisible at times and putting invisible mushrooms on the floor that enemies can walk over, dealing a lot of damage. In the late game, Teemo is not that great so your best option is to place as many mushrooms as possible, around the major objectives and lure the enemy team to walk into them.
Teemo uses a mixture of auto-attacks and ability power to do damage to the enemies. Liandry's Torment is a great first item that can help with Teemo's damage from his auto attacks and abilities. You will be in combat a lot, auto-attacking and using your abilities to poke down the enemies. With Liandry's you gain 2% damage each second while in combat. Nashor's Tooth is a very unique item for Teemo. You want to auto-attack a lot and Nashor's Tooth gives you that attack speed and on top of that gives your extra ability power for your abilities.
For runes we have the following:
This rune helps Teemo deal that little bit of extra damage with auto-attacks and his spells especially in the early game, to try and get an advantage.
Even more help for Teemo to get bonus ability power in the early game to try and secure an advantage.
With Teemo you will be trading a lot in the laning phase so it is very helpful to have more health regeneration so you can stay in lane for longer and win trades.
You want your Noxious Trap to be up and available as much as possible to put as many shrooms down as you can. Hunter Genius will give you ability haste when you get unique takedowns on enemies.
As Teemo, you want to be really aggressive early game. You have really good 1 vs 1 potential against other top lane champions (especially vs melee champions) because of your range and poke. Make sure you use Blinding Dart (1st Ability) when fighting vs the enemy so their next few attacks will deal no damage to you. Take advantage of Guerilla Warfare (3rd Ability) and go invisible whenever possible to gain extra attack speed and be a surprise factor for the enemy.
Teemo really struggles when it gets to late game because he doesn't do the most damage. The best thing you can do at this point is using your Noxious Trap (Ultimate) to get as many shrooms down as possible. This way when a fight happens, you can walk towards your mushrooms and hopefully be able to keep yourself alive. When in a team fight, your main goal is to use Blinding Dart (1st Ability) on the enemy carries so they do no damage for a period of time, and try to auto-attack and do as much damage as possible. Don't get caught by yourself, as Teemo is not the best when it comes to a 1 vs 1 late game.
Overall Teemo is one of them champions that might seem useless but when he gets ahead he can be very scary because of his invisibility and his invisible shrooms. Make sure you use them to your advantage and you can win every game.
