    • [New] "After a 1 second delay, Teemo becomes Invisible. Teemo is slowed by 25/22.5/20/17.5/15% while not in brush. Teemo will stay Invisible indefinitely if standing still or in brush, and can move up to 4/5/6/7/8 Teemos out of brush, but any non-periodic damage from champions will break him out. Teemo can see 25% farther while stealthed. Upon breaking Guerrilla Warfare, Teemo gains 20/30/40/50/60% Attack Speed for 3 seconds. While on cooldown, standing in brush will tick down Guerilla Warfare's cooldown faster."
