Introduction

My name is Darksmile or Darksmile123 on the server. I have played League of Legends for about a year and a half, or whenever Victor Talon came out. Having a good amount of games under my belt i feel like i can give back to the community with a Talon guide. Hope you enjoy and leave constuctive criticism. no hate please <3.

Item build

OK so Talon's items are a but debatable. Most people see him as a SUPER high damage glass canon, they are correct but with this they build him all out bloodthirsters. For me his damage is enough after you get the brutilizer, and if you play him right, you will easily get a kill which bumps up the priority of them killing you. So i think that a phage after you get the damage item is highly effective. If you are wondering why i didn't go over boots 3 pots, then yeah. Its like the only thing you start with on talon. good sustain and mobility = yay.
That should bring you to mid game. At this point things should be going good for you. Now that you got 1-2 kills, your job as mid lane is to gank and help snowball other lanes. More damage with bloodthirster is nice and finishing your mallet also gives you that nice passive damage amp. The rest of the items are up to you. The items i have listed above are a more rounded out, survive and do damage. If you are super fed then go sword of the occult after phage and snowball appropriately. If you are doing bad try to help out other lanes or farm your butt of with w.

early game

The goal here is to poke down your opponent. harass with your rake to last hit/ harass. Do that until lv. 3 when you have your e-q-w combo. It doesnt cost to much mana (relatively), and does really good damage. If you do this right, once you hit lv. 6 they are screwed.

mid game

GANK. your jungle can't do everything so help him out a little bit. Travel around in bushes and be the assassin you are. Not much else to say here.

Late game

If you fail in snowball late game is hard for talon. The main thing you do in a team fight is kill the highest priority champion (ap/ad carry). You can stealth onto them or use your blink. After that you have to do as much damage as a you can to other high priority champions, without dying yourself since you just killed the most important member on their team.
