I Voluxe, present to you my own Talon guide.

Talon is a champion you really don't want to get into a 1v1 with.
He might be squishy, but with this build, his insane damage output will cover that up.

I'd like everyone that reads this, not to dislike before trying it.
If you've tested this build, then please give me a honest rating, by either liking or disliking.
This build works great in ranked, as well as in normal games.

Heres a few games with this build: (More coming soon, its W.I.P)

Different Item Variations

A good choice could be to start with ainstead of , to start off with a little bit more damage in a lane.

If I play Talon at bot and I have a healer with me, I usally take
I mostly solo top with Talon, and I start with the basic item build. (and )
Now if I am against 2 champions, or someone who counters Talon easily, I push the lane up as far as I can. And as soon as the next minion wave is close, I go back and grab my dorans, because I'll need that extra damage.

Now WHY get Dorans blade?

Credits to: Trickshot for this text.

Doran's Blade: I cannot stress enough how this is vital to Talon's early game, if you do not take this item then yes I will call you out in game and I will start raging! No other item brings to the table the stats and perks that Doran's Blade has. It gives you a nice additional 10 attack damage, 100 health and a nice 3 life steal! Precisely why this little item is so vital early game, you can benefit from all 3 of these attributes! It allows you to hit harder early game, get some easy early kills, sustains your hp with a little life steal, and gives you an extra 100hp at lvl 1! Take this item, no do not argue, just do it! (Survivability)

Summoner Spells (Work in progress)

Flash and Ignite is the summoner spells I choose for talon.
Flash for getting away or chasing, and Ignite for securing a kill.

Other choices like ghost and exhaust can be used as well, but I think ignite is more
benefitial for Talon.

Talon's role in Team Fights

Your role in team fights is pretty clear.
You go in, do your thing, and get your *** out of there.

By the time of 3-5 seconds, Talon can do so much damage and still get away without getting hurt.
Which is an amazing thing for your team, to have someone that always can do damage.
Also, since we are buildingTalon will always be able to do much damage very quick.
