Core and its Build Path
Good Offensive Options
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.
Threats to Talon with this build
|Lux||Just dont let her Q you.|
First of all, sorry for my poor English! :)
This is my first guide ever!
I am Sniker, a 80k points Silver 4 Talon main who will try to climb the ladder while maining jungle/mid this Season!
I tried my best to create my own build for this Season and wanted to be the first to provide you with more or less good informations on Items and masteries I chose!
Im looking for feedback! :D
I hope you find this guide useful!
Pros / Cons
+Possibly the biggest AD burst in game
+Give him 1 item advantage and he's going to blow people up
+Has a good AoE burst as an
+Great Roaming ganks, you can approach with your hide and surprise gank your enemy
-No Escape, Ofc. he has 30s CD on his ult Mid/Late game but you shall not use your ult to escape
-Hard to catch up after a lost lane
-Weak pre 6
-(Season 5) Very situational
I chose Death's Dance instead of the classical option which is Hydra for simple reasons, Tiamat got nerfed which means your early clear will not be as strong as before and the new Death's Dance gives you the early Sustain and dueling power that Talon really
needs. (Life steal from any AD dmg source, CDR and 65 AD)
Hydra is still a good option but I think that Death's Dance is a much better Item for Talon because of his Life Steal passive and 10% CDR.
Youmuu's Ghostblade was reworked to Talons favor, Talon doesnt AA much which means that the Crit chance was pretty useless on Talon, now it has more AD which makes it alot stronger on Talon.
Black Cleaver was reworked to have 10 more AD but 100 less HP which makes it a little stronger on Talon, and because Last Whisper (Lord Dominik's Regards) was reworked to ignore 40% BONUS armor the Black Cleaver is a need now.
You are weak pre 6, but when you hit it and your enemy is on half HP you can kill him most of the Time, especially if you picked up Ignite.
Your Ultimate will go down to 30s late game and, at this time you can use your ulti + Youmuus to escape any gank without any problem, but it is still your ult and was meant to be used offensively.
To get the most dmg out of all your Abilities:
Eon your Target ->
Ron them ASAP ->
Wto get out of your ulti and apply Slow ->
Qto end it
You can try to roam and assassinate players on another lanes the shadowy style! Heres the combo:
Rfirst make sure that there is no ward by using the new Oracle! ->
Eon the Target ->
Qand continue AAing if not dead
To get out of Teamfight Safely:
Won them all if possible ->
Eon the highest priority Target (ADC/mid) ->
Rand try to reach your team in hide!
Use the laning phase Combo if you are really fed, when your ahead your going to blow up entire teams in a matter of seconds.
Remember about your farm and placing Wards around your lane because you dont own an Escape!
10 * minutes = LCS Farm tho I get about 70-90 farm at 10th minute!
I hope you found this guide useful and will try to apply it to your game!
Have Fun with the Master Assassin himself! ;D
