Introduction

Hi, I'm not actually expecting anyone to read this build, but I couldn't find a build that suited me so I'm making one. :D I'm building attack damage rather than crit or attack speed
because I find you do short bunches of burst damage rather than a drawn out fight and crit items take alot more money and this way you can have more surprising damage early.

Pros-Cons

Pros:
Ridiculous burst damage combo
Nice harass
Can flash to enemies to set up combo
Sweet ult with cloak and very short cd
Can easily snowball

Cons:
High mana costs
High cooldowns without masteries/runes/items
Not very easy to lane
Doesn't have escape except for ult

Masteries

Talon's masteries are pretty straightforward you take 21 in offence because you want all the dmg you can get, and you go for mana bonuses in utility, because after the recent nerf he has some mana deficciency.

Skill Sequence

I max rake first, I get a point in cuthroat second and leave it there till last, and i get noxian diplmacy as second priority, obviously getting my ult whenever possible.

Summoner Spells

I get flash because it is a must have on almost anyone :) and then I get exhaust because I find it really helps get a kill and its very handy with your passive.

Team Work

In a teamfight, right after the tank initiates go for a carry or squishy, make sure to stay on the same target. Your spells, except for your ult, are geared toward that.

Items

For items I start with a dorans because Talon is a little weak laning, then i go straight for a brutalizer to get that cooldown reduction and the surprising early game damage. after that if im doing well, i pick up a sword of the occult, if I'm not doing particularly good, I go for the bloodthirster as my next item because it has good damage and that lifesteal will really help overall.then i go phage-trinity force because it has soo many good stats. after that i finish my brutalizer into a youmuu's ghostblade. Be sure to remember to use the active in a teamfight. after that is a totally situational item but if you are doing well (you will most likely be doing well if you are getting your 6th item) get a black cleaver.
