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.
Hi. This is my first guide ever so bare with me if it will be just a short one.
So the champ we will talk about is talon. I am just a normal summoner but I can say I've been playing talon a lot and getting flawless victories with this ad burst champ. This champ is kinda squishy but using him with timing and strategy will turn the heads off of their opponents.
I put 9 greater mark of might to Talon which gives 0.135 attack damage per level because at first, talon's damage can sustain for farming and can also deal good amount of damage to enemy champions and you need more damage on the late game.
I put 5 Greater Seal of Defense and 4 Greater Seal of Vitality. Greater Seal of Defense give good amount of armor to Talon and Greater Seal of Vitality gives a little health. Raising Talon's defensive power is also good to make him last in battles.
I put 9 Greater Glyph of Shielding which gives him a total of 24.3 magic resist in lvl 18. This is to lessen his squishyness. Especially when talon is the initiator.
I put 3 Greater Quintessence of Desolation which gives 10 armor penetration. This will give him more damage dealt to the opponent.
I start him off with a Doran's Blade. This gives 10 damage which is good for the early game and also a good amount of health. Next will be Boots of Speed. Mobility with talon early on will avoid ganks and also go after enemies for the kill. Next will be the the The Brutalizer
This gives very good damage, cooldown reduction, and armor penetration. Next is to upgrade the boots to Ionian Boots of Lucidity. This gives more mobility and also more cooldown reduction. This is good for Talon because he is an ad caster. Next will be the vapiric scepter. Good amount of lifesteal makes him last more at laning. Next buy the b.f. sword and upgrade vampiric scepter and b.f. sword to The Bloodthirster. Next complete the Trinity Force. Next upgrade the brutalizer to Youmuu's Ghostblade. This items are enough to win the game but the next two luxury items will give you more devastating damage. The Madred's Bloodrazor and the Infinity Edge. Any of these two can go first. If enemies have large health caps, prioritize Madred's Bloodrazor. Infinity Edge is more like your luxury item here.
Pros / Cons
- kills very fast with the burst ad damaging skills.
- cooldown of skills are fast because of the cooldown reduction of Ionian Boots of Lucidity
and Youmuu's Ghostblade.
- easy creepings with rake.
- unique silence
- low mana consumption
- tons of damage in midgame to lategame.
- can be played at any lane
- cannot last long in lanes when harrassed in early game
- cannot engage immediately in clashes before lvl 6.
- kinda squishy
- not a good jungler in early
Talon is a champ that doesn't go front. This champ should always get in the clash when the enemy champions focus is already in another ally champion. With this, you can easily get away after combo to avoid enemy skills and attacks. Talon can always win a 1v1 fight. After his combo, his opponent will surely feel tons of damage and with right timing, and luring techniques, Talon can secure a kill easily.
