Pros/Cons

Pro:good farmer
mid-range
awesome passive
easy solo top(if you can play him)
easy escape
mid-range CC
can play mid
can carry the game
good 1v1
Cons:squishy(of course he is an assassin)
often focus on teamfights
needs to be fed(kills or creeps)
item dependant


Guide Top

Runes

9x Greater Glyph of Focus because of the cooldown reduction
9x Greater Seal of Replenishment because if he is solo top then he needs his mana for the farming with his W if not solo top take
9x Greater Seal of Warding if you want mid before champion selection
too bad you can't change you runes at champion selection >.<

Sometimes i like to take 9x Greater seal of Resilience instead of the mana regen
And that's guys runes if you want to suggest a chage comments and the change and why i will think about it and that goes for everything :)

Farming

Now this is the important thing if you are solo top and the enemy team deosn't have a jungler(what a shame) then hug the tower and farm with your W sometimes u just have to go and hit that creep but don't do it when they are at the cs if yes you are wanting trouble try to tell you jungler to gank top as fast as you can so you can go B and buy pots and dorans blade or shield more later on item buying i won't put here pictures cause i really don┬Ęt have that much time so... next! when you get your B.F. sword kill those wolves wraith golems ping you teamates to go dragon and when you get your infinity edge or bloodthirster one or the other first it deosn't matter though you can almost kills those wave of cs with 1 W and that's all for farming

Skill Maxing

Easy one Max R->W->Q->
Why? R is ultimate everyone does that except grassy he is trolling :D
W- your farming skill
Q-most DMG
E- is just for the CD so it isn't so important

Some people max Q first before W and i think that's wrong because you need farm altough you can use your Q to last hit the big creep i still prefer W


Guide Top

Items

The annoying part well as you know you are an assassin so you are squishy that means you are focused so i get more hp sometimes i exchange the G.A. with a frozen mallet so i won't go down so easily and when you do survive they have their skills on CD so it's your time to rape people
Sheen for my Q obvious
I see some people with infinity edge bloodthirster phantom dancer berserker's greaves warmog armor and thornmail and i say wtf but hey everybody got an another style i respect that some1 likes to play AS Talon but i prefer that AD Burst Talon that everybody will fear
picked trinity because of the sheen effect hp mana movement speed and etc. better than lich bane :DDD bloodthirster because you need that lifesteal IE for the DMG and a G.A for a second chance in life or your teamates will rush to you and help you or they will just watch you die :(
I hope i didn't missed anything


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Flash because it's the most used summoner spell and almost everybody uses it Exhaust cause if he is slowed he won't escape you and you just wait for your Cd to come down thx to your awesome runes I first started with talon and took ignite and flash i often see exhaust ignite and i tried it and it went fine but i still like more the flash exhaust because you have more escape techniques and will laugh at their faces let's return to that exhaust ignite it's a deadly combinaion but i died more often because i didn't had the flash and NO WARDS and i quess that's all


Guide Top

Masteries

Standard 21 offense increasing DMG improving my summoner spell 9 in utility taking mana increasing and mana regen and movement speed and time spent dead take those mana regen cause i will be farming with my W and so on and when there is a gank so you don't want to be out of mana


Guide Top

Laning

Well in the early game you should try to herras the enemy and still hit the creeps just herras them but not too much so you won't have mana for the gank and you might turn out that the enemy team gets a double kill you will often lose the tower early on if your team deosn't suck if it's a 2v1 lane it's ok because that's always so and when that happens one of them or both will roam so they will help other lanes there where should be your jungler help your team and you should help them with pushing the tower land a basic attack and then W don't use your ulti to kill creeps after you destroyed the tower go if you are at blue team blue or purple team red if it's not taken ask mid if he/she deosn't wants blue and give it to them and when you push WARD IT


Guide Top

Playstyle

As an assassin you are suppose to take out the squishies ad carry,ap,support you don't want to engage only if you are extremely fed and ahead of those others so you kill them instantly you are like a celebrity you wait until the party starts and gives a shiny entrence


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Well i start my combo with E->Ba->Q->W
i start with E so it increases my DMG at the target basic attack it and fast Q he will probably start to run so W will be fine without any counter attack probably because of that 1 sec stun he can counter you after you used Q
i use my ulti to chase and get in range for my E or even flash escape and for the finishing blow or waiting for my CD in a teamgiht or 1v1
I often see a W->E->Ba->Q but to be honest would you let talon that close to you? NO! only if he is baiting or wants to fight you
A good talon sees the situation and knows when he has to go in and go out or stay out of the fight
