WELCOME TO MY FIRST BUILD EVAAA
WELCOME TO MY TALON BUILD
first off ill try my best to teach you about the amazing new ad burst champ talon!! Before i start let me tell you that a attack speed talon is a bad talon..... sure you can build him that way, but he will lack the insane burst he can duel out on a champ. On par with Leblanc. Anyways...here we go!
Runes = DEEP PENETRATION
ok so as you see i love to penetrate the armor of the enemy...especially if its a squishy caster (leblanc).
i take Armor pen mark and quins, as for my seals i take mana regen per 5 so i can lane longer ( i usually love to mid), and i finish it off with CDR runes per lvl, so we can shadow ***ult every 30 sec.
Having +25 armor pen in the beginning will give u some hard hitting rakes and Q's on your oppenents in the beginning, making them back very quickly if harassed correctly. Talon can and will take first blood, so dont be afraid to take mid against a brand, leblanc, or karthus, because it has been done.
more ad more ad please, 21/0/9
I get even more armor pen, and i gave the point into exhaust. Talon's passive, mercy, gives u 10% increase dmg on enemies who are in CC effects. SO a silence, q, rake, exhaust, q = for sure death. oh i almost forgot about your ult ;]
first of all, NO TRIN FORCE
i've seen so many builds with trin force it drives me nuts! yes talon benefits from the moajority of it, but it cost too much and takes up a slot in talon's build that could be used for more ad.
grabbing doran's blade is what i get first to start off my build, all around a good item, 100 health, ad, and 3% lifesteal, not too bad.
i grab boots of swiftness first, then grab a Brutalizer to give me 25 ad, more armor pen, and CDR. for my boots i grab CDR boots, or if alot of cc ill grab merc treads. once again ill say something about talon...HE IS A MELEE CASTER, STOP BUILDING ATTACK SPEEED. Would u build atk speed on a pantheon?? ok then.
After brutalizer i grab the 3 bf swords builds and the burst comes amazing. Talon can go in target a champ and crush him with one whole skill sequence and sometimes get out untouched.
the last item i go for is last whisper, more armor pen and more ad dmg is good for me, because at this point the oppsoing team will prolly have some anti-ad gear on..
but the last item is more of a situational.
NO NO NO NO NO
- trin force
i max out rake first, seeing as it does the most dmg in his skill in the beginnin g and it is a fantastic farming skill. then i max out q next because it is ur hardest hitting move next to rake, i get silence last as it is only useful i think at lvl 1. his other skills hold more prioriety.
talon combo one v one
Q>E>W>R = death for any mage or squishy carry
team battle? no prob
R> focus someone squishy > Q>E>W
exhaust and ghost
i love exhaust and ghost, or flash w/e u fancy
i love ghost, because i can pop it, run in rake, if there low ill exhaust and finish them off. its not super complicated but its very simple!! :D
