Introduction

Welcome, and this is a guide for Talon, The Blade's Shadow.

In this guide, I will go through the items and skills I used when playing him.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

-Great burst damage.
-Great farmer.
-Strong late game.
-Great escape mechanism(ultimate)

Cons:

-Quite weak at the beginning.
-If they have oracles, it makes the ultimate stealth useless.
-Cannot stay in lane forever if being harassed hard.

Skills

NOXIAN DIPLOMACY - This skill is your main damage output. It has a great burst damage and also, really low cooldown. You will want to come in with this skill whenever you start a fight.

RAKE - This skill is what allows you to farm quick. You can also use it to harass your enemy.

CUTTHROAT - This allows you to pick who you want your target to be. When using this, it will silence the enemy you targeted, and also allows you to do extra damage.

SHADOW ASSAULT - I really enjoy this skill, when using it, you want to stand in front of your enemy where the blades are behind him. This will allow all the blades to directly hit him. This is also a great way to escape. It allows you to have the invis and extra speed to run.

Skill Sequence

The reason for my skill sequencing and aiming to make Q and W even is because you want to be able to farm more quicker and also being able to deal enough damage to your enemy. Balancing the two skill out can help in fights.

Items

Shoes really depends on how your team is going up against. You can get threads if the other sides has a lot of cc. Ninja tabi really helps when up against a lot of dps.

You really want Frozen Mallet, it just a great item for Talon because of his passive. It will greatly improve your damage.

Phantom Dancer are for speed and atk speed. It really helps you chase down enemy.

The reason for Bloodthirster and IE is because you really rely on ur Q when you are fighting, it is the main damage output, so these will really help you improve the damage.

Your final item really depends on how the other team is. If they have a lot of magic damage, you can switch to Banshee's Veil, whereas if they have a lot of physical damage, the Omen can really help.
