Intro

TALON IS BEAST!!!! Ok now that we got that out of the way. Talon is a burst assassin who enters and exits combat. To play talon you must have the hit and run mindset and be prepared to make very quick adaptations to your battle strategy.

Skills

-Noxian Diplomacy
You want to use this after you cutthroat and rake to maximize damage. Remember if your target is running and you tag them with Noxian Diplomacy you will have sight and can cutthroat to them if its off cd.

-Rake
pretty self explanatory throw blades in hit them on the way back. Works as a great slow and AOE attack. This is your bread and butter when it comes to procing your passive.

-Cutthroat
Choosing which target to use this on is entirely situational. Typically you will target there best burster such as veigar. Immediately after land rake and noxian diplomacy.

-Shadow Assault
This is what makes you an assassin. Use this to escape, chase, wait for cd's, or burst. Always try to use the blades to hit AS MANY TARGETS AS POSSIBLE!

Gameplay Strategy

Before each battle PICK YOUR TARGET! Jump to them with cutthroat, land rake, then noxian diplomacy, land one more autoattack then use shadow assault. while in stealth wait for your cd's to finish and pick your target pop out land rake and noxian diplomacy and mop up the rest of the team.
