TEEMO STORY

Teemo is a legend among his yordle brothers and sisters in Bandle City. As far as yordles are concerned, there is something just slightly off about him. While Teemo enjoys the companionship of other yordles, he also insists on frequent solo missions in the ongoing defense of Bandle City. Despite his genuinely warm personality, something switches off inside Teemo’s mind during combat so that the lives he must end while on patrol do not burden him. Even as a young recruit, the drill instructors and other trainees found it a little disconcerting that, while Teemo was normally charming and kind, he turned deadly serious and highly efficient the minute combat exercises began. Teemo’s superiors quickly steered him toward the Scouts of the Mothership, which is one of Bandle City’s most distinguished Special Forces unit alongside the Megling Commandos.

While most yordles do not handle solo scouting missions with a great deal of finesse, Teemo is remarkably efficient at them. His record of success in defending Bandle City from infiltrators easily makes him one of the most dangerous yordles alive, though you’d never know it by having a cup of honey mead with him at his favorite inn. Bandle City chose Teemo as their first champion for the League, and he has taken to it like a duck to water. His signature weapon – a blowgun – uses a rare ajunta poison he personally gathers from the jungles of Kumungu. To help cope with his lengthy periods of isolation, Teemo recently struck up a friendship with Tristana, a fellow League champion and fellow member of Bandle City’s Special Forces. This connection is healthy for both yordles, though now Valoran’s voracious media outlets circulate rumors that the friendship is turning into a romantic relationship. Regardless, Teemo is a crowd favorite in the League of Legends, and a pint-sized foe that many have come to fear.

“Teemo rides a thin line between chipper compatriot and unrepentant killer, but there’s no one else I’d rather have as a friend.”
— Tristana

Teemo Abilities

Camouflage

If Teemo stands still and takes no actions for a short duration, he becomes stealthed indefinitely. Teemo can start to stealth while moving in brush and can move around in brush without breaking his stealth. After leaving stealth, Teemo gains the Element of Surprise, increasing his Attack Speed for 3 seconds.

Blinding Dart

Obscures an enemy's vision with a powerful venom, dealing damage to the target unit and blinding it for the duration.

Move Quick

Teemo scampers around, passively increasing his Movement Speed until he is struck by an enemy champion or turret. Teemo can sprint to gain bonus Movement Speed that isn't stopped by being struck for a short time.

Toxic Shot

Each of Teemo's attacks will poison the target, dealing damage on impact and each second after for 4 seconds.

Noxious Trap

Teemo throws an explosive poisonous trap using one of the mushrooms stored in his pack. If an enemy steps on the trap, it will release a poisonous cloud, slowing enemies and damaging them over time. If Teemo throws a mushroom onto another mushroom it will bounce, gaining additional range.
