Hi!,I am maypix and welcome to my Talon guide,This is my first guide so please dont downvote it..Thank to jhoijhoi to her Guide in making a guide so I understand how to make a guide..I just wanna share my gamplay to Talon so everyone knows how I play Talon, Talon is my favorite champion to play with in LoL because his OP!!,(not so OP),I like talon because of his skill Rake is his first main damage skill and cutthroat + Noxian Diplomacy combo,and his ultimate Shadow Assault can be used in escaping,chasing,or initating a fight..So..Let us start the guide to Talon,Please enjoy it
Pros And Cons
+Great damage w/ Rake
+Great in escaping,chasing,and initiating fights w/ Shadow Assault
+Great slow w/ Rake
+Shift + 3 = Billie Jean
-Mana problem when spamming Rake
-Some spells have long cooldown
-Short invi time w/ Shadow Assault
-Needs item to godlike
greater mark of desolation-It gives you 1.66 Armor penetration every 1 of this rune..It is helpful in AD champions like Talon, Master Yi and other AD champions
greater seal of defense-It gives 2.7 armor at lvl 18 every 1 of this rune.I take this runes for more survival ..Cannot do the math xD
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist-2.7 magic resist at lvl 18 every 1 of this runes.I take this runes for more survival like greater seal of defense
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.
Summoner's Wrath - I take this for the spell Exhaust,Because it reduces the Exhausted target`s Magic resist and armor by 10
Brute Force - +3 Attack Damage
Alacrity - This gives you 4% Attack Speed...Meeeeeeeh
Weapon Expertise - 10% Armor Penetration..Very Helpful to Champions like Talon, Ashe and other Ad Champions
Lethality - 10% Increased Critical Damage
Vampirism - +3% Lifesteal For You..
Executioner - Increases the damage dealth to targets who have 40% health
Resistance - +6 Magic Resist for more survival
Hardiness - +6 Armor for more survival too..
Durability - +3 health every lvl 18..Only 2 points because I run out of points :)
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
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 does not amplify the damage from on-hit effects, such as Noxian Diplomacy and items such as Sheen.
Tip and Trick
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..
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
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.
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
Rake> Noxian Diplomacy
Noxian Diplomacy(Activate)> cutthroat> Noxian Diplomacy(attack)> Rake> Shadow Assault(activate) Shadow Assault(make sure the enemy will be hit by the blades)> Ignite(if needed)
- 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
- Ghost-Has lower cooldown than Flash,If you want to get this Replace this spell with Flash
- Heal-Everyone calls this "noobs" spells,but Talon is some squishy so sometimes I take this spell.
- Smite-Jungle Talon is not so good.
- Cleanse-Is your enemy team is a Heavy CC team?..Get this one or buy Quicksilver Sash
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..
Oh And stay out from his Spirit Fire,If it is a AP Nasus,Really,Really,Really,Really, stay out from his Spirit Fire
