This is a bit off the beaten path for this blog, but in a similar vein to the links to my GameFAQs guides, I'm going to begin adding my typical build orders for the champions I play in the online game League of Legends. Those of you who don't play League of Legends (also known as LoL) are free to skip these posts, as they likely won't make much sense to you. Those of you who do play, maybe one of these builds will help you out someday!
Today we'll be looking at my typical build for my number-one main: Teemo, the Swift Scout. He might be underpowered as hell at the moment, but he's SO much fun to play, especially with that adorable laugh. I find the only way to get respectable damage out of him is through an on-hit build, especially since this also allows him to build a bit tankier with Wit's End and Frozen Mallet. Seeing as he's so fragile, that extra survivability is paramount. Without further ado:
Teemo: On-hit Carry Build
Long Sword/ Cloth Armor -> Madred’s Razors
Grab this item first. I can’t stress enough how much it will help you with farming. Take the Cloth Armor if you’re soloing top or worried about facing a heavy AD-team; otherwise, grab the Long Sword.
Boots of Speed
The next time you recall, things are highly dependent on your money:
420 – 839 gold: Buy one Dagger.
840 – 1049 gold: Buy two Daggers.
1050+ gold: Buy one Recurve Bow.
If you got one or two Daggers, your next item should be Malady. If you got the Recurve Bow, build toward Wit’s End.
Chain Vest -> Glacial Shroud
I find this important to grab early on. Not only is the armor helpful for obvious reasons, but around now, you ought to have your ult. CDR reduces the amount of time it takes for your mushrooms to restock, and running around dropping them everywhere takes a lot of mana. For this reason, I like to try and build Glacial Shroud at this time, around level 6.
Upgrade Boots of Speed to Mercury’s Treads.
Next chance you get, build the item (Malady or Wit’s End) that you didn’t build before.
Upgrade Madred’s Razors to Madred’s Bloodrazor.
Long Sword -> Phage
Upgrade Glacial Shroud to Frozen Heart.
Upgrade Phage to Frozen Mallet.
