First of All

Hi, I'm Andi and im trying to make a nice guide about: Talon, The Blade's Shadow.
It's my first guide, so please, be polite :]

Everybody is now looking for the right items and playstyle of Talon. Or just how to counter!


Guide Top

Introduction

Most Guides show the lore of the champ, i won't ^^ Its useless and if u want to know his lore, read it at League of Legends!

Talon is quite fun... He is a strong melee assassin and a very good farmer, because of Rake !

He is played Solo-Top, Mid, and on Duo lanes! But i rather play on duo lanes or mid!


PROS:

great farmer/pusher with Rake

bursts with --cutthroat combo or -cutthroat-

nice teamfights with 2 AoE-DMG spells

nice escape mechanics

CONS:

is squishy and early game cooldown dependent

all his dmg is AD, get armor and he is useless

he is new, almost first focused

no healing or sustain abilities, has to go back early if focused


Guide Top

Masteries

For Materies: 21-9-0
He is only AD dependent, so make him stronger! And as second Tree i recommend the Deff-Tree.. But if u want to, take the Utility :D


Guide Top

Runes

Marks: Armor Pen, what else Greater Mark of Desolation
Seals: Mana Reg. /5 per Lvl Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration
Why? "Talon doenst have mana problems!" -Ya, but its good to have it! You can stay longer in lane, which is important if u go solo top or mid and just spam !
Glyphs: Attack Speed, we want Talon to hit faster! Greater Glyph of Attack Speed
Quints: very recommended Armor Pen Greater Quintessence of Desolation
but some extra health is nice too :D Greater Quintessence of Health

Items

The core of a guide:

ITEMS

Item Sequence











Ionian Boots of Lucidity
900

Phage
1250

Phantom Dancer
2550

Trinity Force
3733

The Bloodthirster
3700

Banshee's Veil
2450
  • Starting Item: Doran's Blade :" Life,Dmg,Lifesteal " best start!
  • After First Blood i go for Ionian Boots of Lucidity , the CD's are pretty long at the beginning and Talon vs Talon,just say cooldown advantage!

    Sure Berserker's Greaves are good, but you can take the little ATS disadvantage, believe me!

    So, now im rushing Phage for a "life + AD + hit-slow advantage!"
    After that, buy seal and improve it to Phantom Dancer, it makes you Mid-Game stronger!
  • Then, watch ur money and look for Trinity Force,it has everything you need!
    And dont say "It has AP, thats useless! I rather buy something else!" INCORRECT, it gives you crit chance, movement speed, makes your Q Noxian Diplomacy stronger and life and mana :D nice,nice,nice

    But Early and Mid game is over, so start to get more AD!
    2 Words
  • The Bloodthirster
    Most AD ingame + Lifesteal! Nothing against that.

    You realy do damage now, so what's about Deff?
  • -Sure. Banshee's Veil, life + mana + magic resistance + and the greatest passive of an item!
    But dont buy it, if the enemies have hard physical damage output!!!

    The last item,if u hadn't win yet, is individually. Maybe another The Bloodthirster
    or some Armor..

Your choice!

Skill Sequence

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
Simple:
(Passive) mercy very simple, 10% increased damage to cc'ed enemies!(snared,stunned,feared,etc.)
(Q) Noxian Diplomacy cool on hit effect, makes ur target visible for a short time and let it take DoT!
(W) Rake It is your core harassment in the lane! 3 Blades in a cone fly away and come back!
(E) cutthroat Very kewl spell, immediately leaps behind the target, and silencing it!
nice against casters ;]

(R) Ulti: Shadow Assault I love it, low cooldown late game ~35 sec.
Talon gets invisible and 40% movement speed for 2,5 seconds. A circle of blades move away from him!
If Talon gets visible again, the blades catch him and do damage to all enemies in their way!- Creat to escape or to gank!


Guide Top

Summoner Spells


  • nice combo with
  • does that little damage which can change a raging "LUCKER!" or "hahaha, i got you!"
  • 50% less heals or hp-reg, nice against lanes with supporter or Mundo's Ultimate for example


  • Nothing is against a Off/Deff Spell
  • Off: if the target is to far away -"Just flash" or for a short escape from the turret dive
  • Deff: Flash away from skillshots or if u would get ganked, over a wall. RECOMMENDED


Guide Top

Summary

nice to catch up a lost enemy, reveals his location
does very high dmg
cutthroat lets you jump pretty far and harass your sololane
Nice speed, enough time to escape durring invisible and nice damge if you are positioning right!


Early game: harass with Rake

Mid game: if u got Phantom Dancer : Noxian Diplomacy then cutthroat Rake and fast back behind your minions!

Late Game: cutthroat and try to catch their carries!!!
