You should be building him AP and fighting battles an your teams' terms with the area of fighting prepped with shrooms.

I almost only play teemo top. If you want to play AP teemo top, I would recommend you this guide from Higgabes, he's from SEA and his build has helped me a lot so far <3

The reason why I like it is that you deal a lot of damage because it focuses on AP as well as a lot of defense. For a top laner I like to be a bit beefy (bruiser) and not die immediately, because the longer you stay alive the more damage you actually deal

hope it helped!

I don't really like Rylai's on teemo. Your shrooms already do substantial slow, and there's more reliability for slowing when you get frozen mallet, not to mention more health, since teemo mostly deals damage through auto attacks.

Also, I never build nashor's tooth unless I have at least one big AP item and a deathcap. Nashor's tooth's AP scaling potential is just wasted if you build it with on hit itemization

If you're not building pure AP Teemo you're doing it wrong

You're correct, but the 15% slow for every tick of the Shroom helps if people are running.

That's a very valid point!

Nashor's tooth is great for the CDR too don't forget... it has all Teemo core stats. You need the CDR for more shrooms!

I grab nashor just because teemo needs all the stats. The added magic damage on auto attacks is just icing on the cake. More CDR = more shrooms = better map control. Which is what teemo brings to the table early on since he doesn't have much team fight presence till he gets hurricane (or tanky items for that global taunt)

beat me to it lol, truthfully I sometimes grab rylai also for the nuke slow. Though frozen mallet + hurricane is win
