Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
So basically new champion came out and I become one of those crazed fanboys about him. Of course he looked like he legit came out of a comic book or assassin's Creed but who cares. Even though crimson looks like a masked lucadore w.e This build is focused around his skills and quick in and out assassinations that will help put the team fight in your favor.
So basically for your runes you have your basic armor pen, mana regen, and for the glyphs you cna do what you want. I run mag resist for those since it helps me out late game.
For my items i like to start with dorans blade. After that i stay in lane until i have enough for a longsword and boots. Then after i build a brutalizer and then a phage. Afterwards i get a sheen and finish the TF. After TF i like to build a blood thirster for hte life steal and the damage it produces. Now here is where it can go differently, you can build a frozen mallet like i do, or you can finish your youmuu and then a frozen mallet. By this point your build consists of: Trinity Force, Boots (choice depends on the team comp. i go swiftness for movement build after phage),Blood THirster, frozen mallet, youmuu's. Now your crit chance should be high enough for you to finish with a infinity edge, which will add a nice damage to your combo. The burst you get from E into Q should be amazing with an autoattack that should crit. and deal damage with the sheen. If you find your being killed by lets say karthus's ult, it may be wise to instead of bringing a frozen mallet, to build a banshee instead. Since your W already slows and there is a 25% chance from TF, it wouldn't affect your damage too severely. Alright i decided to do this instead, if you can build the BT and IE before the trinity force, it puts more nuke on your skills and ult and after the TF the nuke should increase again. Not switching it in the item order cause i am too lazy. zzz
Now here is where it gets fun. Your standard combo will consist of E and Q. However if you want to get all technical and pro like, this is what you do: E into them auto attack with seen proc, they shud be slowed when u have frozen mallet, hit em with Q procs sheen again probably and then W and keep up the combo. Thats basically guaranteed low health and pop ur ult and return it asap and u get a kill.
Farming is quite simple on talon. When you first start, limit your harass on your lane enemy by using rake to farm AND harass at the same time. When you master this, you can simply demolish your lane and it helps so much.
So all in all Talon is an assassin when i play him and he does a pretty dam good job of assassinating people. Now enjoy assassinating people and get called OP <3.
