Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
So you have thought about playing Assassin's Creed in League of Legends?! Well you picked the right champion! Talon is both stealthy, fun, and can kill people as fast as in Assassin's Creed. So welcome to my Talon build, I hope you enjoy every single bit of it.
Pros 'n Cons
-He's freaking cool
-Kills his targets fast!
-Fun to play
-1v1? No problem easy kill
-Very good escaper
-Doesn't use a lot of mana.
-Barely easy to play.
-People will target you
-You on a lane means they're gonna go get you fast
-He's freaking lame to be against.
-Well there's not a lot more to say about it...
The reason why I picked 9 Greater Marks of Desolation is because you want to smash through their armor and kill them.
9 Greater Seals of Resilience is becasue you're way too squishy in the beggining and you want first blood and maybe even double kill.
9 Greater Glyphs of Focus makes you able to cast your Rake and Noxian Diplomacy every 3rd second which is great in a 1v1 fight.
3 Greater Quintessences of Desolation gives you more Armor Penetration which equals MORE KILLS!
The reason why I picked Exshaust and Flash are:
Exhaust: You slow your target and can get an easy firstblood, you can escape if they're 2+, and help your friends get away.
Flash: You can retreat, jump into an enemy, and chase an enemy.
The reason why I picked Frozen Mallet and Phantom Dancer over Trinity Force is, Frozen Mallet has a 100% chance to slow the target which makes your passive extremely crazy because you deal 10% damage to the target. Phantom Dancer is mostly just to give you a lot of speed, attack speed, AND CRIT CHANCE!
NOTICE! Late game Talon will have over 60% chance to crit, which means why not upgrade your crit damage from 200% to 250%?! Here Infinity Edge comes into the picture. Infinity Edge gives you a lot of damage, crit chance, and the extra crit damage which is awesome on Talon.
Why Berserker's Greaves over Mercury's Treads? Berserker's Greaves give you a lot of attack speed and then you'r eable to farm faster. Mercury's Treads are fine, BUT you already have Flash, and if somebody's hunting you for real? Then you just pop Exhaust on them and you're on your way back to the base.
The Brutalizer is AWESOME because all of your spells are physical which means AP means nothing and armor penetration works.
Is Talon a good farmer? Yes! He is indeed a very good farmer. He can kill those minions so fast just when he reaches lvl 8. By then you should have at least Bersker's Greaves and already started or finished with Zeal. I usually have Berskerker's Greaves, Zeal, and Cloak of Agility at that point, but it's fine if you didn't get a lot of kills in the beginning. So what you do is Rake the Caster Minions and they should have about 1 hit left and you can kill them.
When you are preparing for a gank you need to be in the background until you can see an opening where one or two of the enemy champions are low on health, then you simply just pop ulti, use Cutthroat(E), Rake, and last Noxian Diplomacy. Remember just to spam the Rake and Noxian Diplomacy since you want to deal the most damage to your target fast.
Thank you very much for watching this guide. I wish you all your best kills, wins, and if this guide helped you please give it a thumbs up!
