Introduction

Talon is an assassin with amazing burst potential and is, what I consider, one of the best chasers in the game. He has the ability to go in and out of a fight when need be and chase those runners down.

This guide is a reference on one of the many ways to maximize the chance of getting those kills, taking out the enemy carries, and surviving to see another battle.

Pros / Cons

PROS:

-High damage.
-Good early game, unlike most AD carries.
-One of the games best chasers.

CONS:

-Squishy.
-Main focus during team battles.
-All about control and knowing who to attack when and how.

Masteries

20/0/9

Pretty standard AD DPS build. I opted for 4/4 Sorcery over Alacrity due to the need to make his abilities more spammable when needed. The option between Good Hands vs Perseverance is pretty much up to the user, I like being able to lane a little longer early game and Perseverance allows me to do just that.

Runes

Again pretty standard AD DPS build, going full on damage. Opting for the Greater Glyph of Focus to make his abilities more spammable when needed. There are other options like changing the Greater Seals for something like Resilience or Warding.

Summoner Spells

Flash: Great for chasing or escaping a gank. Overall one of the better summoner skills.

Exhaust: With the mastery talent, this helps to solidify Talon as one of the better chasers in the game. Slow + Armor and Magic resist reduction its amazing.

Ghost: One of the better summoner skills, great for chasing and escaping but with limits that flash does not have, like flashing over walls.

Items

Doran's Blade: Great starting item giving you much needed HP and Damage during the early laning phase, also gives some Life Leech for staying power.

Berserker's Greaves: Solid damage boots. There are other options depending on the situation and who you will be up against. Going for Mercury's Treads is a good option if there are alot of AP users.

Youmuu's Ghostblade: An amazing fit for Talon. Gives Damage / Crit / CDR / ArP, and a active that allows for better chasing down those runners.

Frozen Mallet: Along with Youmuu's Ghostblade, these two items are Talons defining items. Frozen Mallet gives some need HP, a little bit of Damage and a slow. The slow has perfect synergy with Talons passive which makes this a killer item.

Last Wish: Damage + ArP. When the other team sees you in the game a lot of those champions will make them selves more tanky, this will make sure you get the kill from those armor clad champs.

Infinity Edge: +80 Damage / +25 Crit Strike Chance / 25% increase in crit damage... what more can you ask for?

Banshee's Veil: Tons of options for the last spot, but I prefer something to help me survive those tough team battles where I might get focused for the second I'm in the mix.
