Greater Quintessence of Scaling Attack Damage-4.5 attack damage every 1 of this runes..I take this because in the 3 kinds of runes,I dont have any AD runes..(Except Armor Penetration)..That is why I take this.

Executioner - Increases the damage dealth to targets who have 40% health

Defense

Items


Ok I Start with a Doran's Blade or a Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion..Before I recall I make sure I have enough gold to buy B. F sword or The Bloodthirster Then Go back to lane again..And then buy a Zeal or Phage or Sheen..After that rush into a Trinity Force to complete the core build..After Buying Trinity Force..Invite your friends to kill the dragon..And kill champions..After That,Buy the Infinity Edge and the teamfights begin now..after that,If you score ACE..You should have enough money to buy Guardian Angel or Last Whisper....


My Build to Talon

Attack Speed Talon


Guide Top

Boots

- Talon dont really need attack speed,So I just buy this one smoetimes.
- Survival Boots is Survival,If enemy team has lot of CC,Buy this boot.
- For more armor,Tanky boots is tanky

Mercy cutthroat


Mercy Mercy:(Innate): Talon's autoattacks deal 10% additional damage to any target that is slowed, stunned, immobilized or suppressed..It is helpful when You Use Rake..
Trivia about Mercy
Mercy means Mercy killing..Which means as in killing quickly in order to avoid prolonged pain.
Mercy does not amplify the damage from on-hit effects, such as Noxian Diplomacy and items such as Sheen.
Tip and Trick
Consider buying attack speed items like Phantom Dancer to deal 10% damage faster so you Can kill them easily while your teammates use their Movement CCs like Malzahar`s Nether Grasp Sion`s Cryptic Gaze and Taric`s Dazzle


Noxian Diplomacy: Talon's next autoattack within the next 6 seconds deals additional physical damage. If the target is a champion they will also bleed for 6 seconds, taking additional physical damage each second and revealing their location for the duration.Combo this with cutthroat will make a great combo..
more info about Noxian Diplomacy(Tips and tricks)


Noxian Diplomacy will not reveal stealthed champions, but they still grant vision of their surroundings.

Noxian Diplomacy will proc on structures.

Noxian Diplomacy will proc on non-champion targets for the initial physical damage, but will not apply the DoT.


Rake: Talon sends out a volley of daggers in a cone that then quickly return back to him, dealing physical damage to any enemies it passes through. Each enemy can only be damaged once at the start of the ability and once at the end. Additionally the enemy is slowed for 2 seconds, refreshing the duration of the slow if they are hit twice.This is you main source of damage for Talon
More infos about Rake

Talon can alter the blades' path by moving while they are returning to him

Both hits of Rake procs spell vamp and Rylai's slow similarly with all area of effect spells and abilities with diminished effect


Cutthroat Cutthroat[/color]: Talon instantly appears behind his target, silencing them for 1 second and amplifying his damage against that target for 3 seconds.The Silence of Cutthroat is helpful against Kassadin Katarina,And other champions who have channeling skills

(Nothing Found about tips and tricks)


Shadow Assault: Talon disperses a ring of blades outwards and gains stealth for up to 2.5 seconds while gaining 40% movement speed. When Talon emerges from stealth, the blades converge on his location. When the ring of blades expands and contracts, enemies hit receive physical damage. Each enemy can only be damaged once at the start of the ability and once at the end.

Infos about Shadow Assault

Radius of AoE: 500

Stealth can be ended manually, either by attacking or by reactivating Shadow Assault

Both hits of Shadow Assault procs spell vamp and Rylai's slow similarly with all area of effect spells and abilities with diminished effect

A specific enemy unit can only be hit twice by Shadow Assault, once on the initial cast and once on the return

Harrasing

Summoner Spells

Top Choices

  • Exhaust-One of my favorite spells to AD champions..It helps in chasing or fighting 1v1 champions..It helps too in powering down Tryndamere, Xin Zhao and other AD carries..
  • Flash-One of famous spell of all..It helps in chasing,escaping,and Flashing through walls
  • Ignite-Finish an enemy running, Ignite them fast!..kill Fiddlesticks with this spell!
  • Teleport-If you are laning solo top or mid,Take this spell to get back on your lane faster/easily

Good Choices

Lane Matchups



Watch Out with his Parrrley,dont go near him so he cant hit you with Parrrley,And his orange Remove Scurvy is so annoying..Even you slow him with Rake. Gangplank:(Eats Orange),that was not k to you..His Cannon Barrage is global..Even you far to him,He can slow you!.So watch Out,If there is a circle with a big "X" at the middle,better watch out in that!

Difficulty
8/10


Mordekaiser,An annoying champion.He just spam skills,And if it hits someone,He gains an shield!!!So Annoying,His spammable Siphon of Destruction and Mace of Spades is really annoying,Stay far from your minions so the Mace of Spades bounce wont hit you..
Stay far from him so if he activate Creeping Death,He wont hit you..If you are low health,Stay far from Mordekaiser,Because he can activate Children of the graves..Dont attack him when he have a shield,That a waste of mana..

Difficulty
9/10



This little guy can combo the sh*t out of you,Use your Noxian Diplomacy + Cutthroat combo so He cannot cast spell :),Avoid his Event Horizon,Buy tenacity items so you cannot be hit by his Dark Matter,Dont let him last hit with his Baleful Strike so he cannot get AP,

Difficulty
6/10



This stupid pharaoh guy can kill you easily by his Siphoning Strike,Dont let him last hit minions with his Siphoning Strike,If you let him farm,You're dead,Stay out of range of Nasus if he have a lane partner,Because if you go near him,He can slow you with Wither,The 2nd most f*cking longest duration of a CC,and Slow..You're Dead if You're slow
Oh And stay out from his Spirit Fire,If it is a AP Nasus,Really,Really,Really,Really, stay out from his Spirit Fire

Difficulty
8/10
