Introduction

Welcome on my Offtank Talon Build.

For Introduction I just want to tell you that Offtank Talon is Hard2Play and his position in teamfight is way to win.


Guide Top

Runes

First of all
For Runes I choose:
For better damage outputFor good Starter ArmorFor good Starter Magic Resist
And alsofor better HPs to start with.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

For Talon, there is a lot of good Summoners spells to choose.
But with this build I chooseas first spell for his passive andas second for fast way to get into battle or out of battle by situation.

But if you dont feel those spells will somehow help you, and you know you will get focused.
You can also use.

Anothers spells seems useless to me and you will not benefit from them.

Pros / Cons

Little lacks at early-game
Needs good position in teamfight

Team Work

Teamwork with Talon is one of Aspects that will win you game if played propertly.

So, How to Teamwork with Talon?
Its pretty Simple.

1.)Never let Talon start teamfight.
2.)Squishies are your first priorite.
3.)If Talon gets focus as Tank/Offtank He doesnt need help in a lot of cases, if he is having his ulti, so continue killing their Squishies.
4.)Talons shine time cames when Trinity is completed, before this dont await somehow big damage advantage.

Items

In this build, There are 3 Core Items.
It is
Mercury Threads / Ninja Tabi, Trinity Force and Randuin's Omen / Force of Nature by situation.

As you see, Into this build I also given Gold/Sec items. Thats because Talon as Offtank dont have somehow many kills so having some ++ Golds is good advantage for him.

Tanky items are just Optional and can be all the way changed if your Foes are more AP/AD/AS

Example:
1.)You are against Warwick, Yi, Tryndamere. Your main tank Item now is better to be Frozen Heart for reducing their Atk. Spd., but also Thornmail can help in those situations.
2.)You are against Ryze, Katarina, Yi. Then Its Time to first buy Force of Nature to avoid high nuke damage to you, and then Thornmail or Randuin's Omen.
// I dont mean 3v3, Its just example!


Guide Top

Farming

As Offtank Talon, try to get on lane where you can easily take creeps with no problems
Example: Solo TOP //JUST 1v1 - Dont go 1v2, because you are squishy early-game
BOT w/ Support //Easy to farm + heal and posibility to take kills
Or potentionaly MID //Only if you know, that they dont have hard nuker for early-game (Brand, Orianna, Annie)
