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.
Hello everybody my name is Sm1leAway and this is my guide for Talon. He is my favourite champ since he came out and I decided to make a guide for him since most of my games with him turn out good. By the way this is my first guide so I'm sorry in advance if I done something wrong and feel fre to tell me if anything is missing.
P.S. Sry about the rest of the images I'll add them as soon as I can.
These are just some latest games because I have no other games in my match history.
Dont mind the dates because I put the games together.
Pros / Cons
Very nice burst dmg
After lvl 6 easy squishy champ kills and lane domination
If you have flash and your ult you are practicaly unkillable
Not too hard too play and to master
With good timing you are unstopable
Nice harrasment early game
Low ult cooldown
Against a CC team you might have trouble
Wrong timing can get u ganked and killed
If you get underfed you wont be able to catch up easily
Cant use ult to make an efective getaway becasue blades give away your position
For the runes my choice is:
9x Greater Mark of Desolation(1.66 armor penetration)
9x Greater Seal of Might(+1.09 dmg at champion lvl 18)
I dont have glyphs but damage, armor pen, or attack speed... its your choice
and 3x Greater Quintessence of Might(4.5 dmg at champion lvl 18)
but the most important thing is armor penetration and a bit ad pure or lvl 18.
For items I like to start with Dorans Bladebecause it gives you HP for less squishyness, a bit of lifesteal which comes in handy if you have access to creeps and dmg which is ofc important.
After that I try to stay in lane until I have enough money for Berserker Greeves. I take them becase when you jump onto an oponent and slow him it allows u to get more hits on him.
Next up is The Brutalizerwhich I dont upgrade into Ghostbladebecause dmg and cd reduction is all you need.
Then buy Phagefor a bit of damage and hp which is upgraded into a Frozen Malet as soon as possible because it gives good hp and perma activates your passive which increases your dmg dealt by 10%.
Our next target is The Bloodthirster. If you have enough money buy B.F. Sword first if not just buy the Vampiric Scepter. This gives you very nice dmg and a bit of lifesteal which comes in handy mid to late game.
Now its time for more dmg and more attack speen with The Black Cleaver. Just as with the Bloodthirster buy the part for which you have money. this item gives you armor reduction, attack speed and dmg which is really good.
Now for the last item sell your Dorans if you havent done it earlier and go for a Phantom Dancer. The attack speed is pretty op with your dmg nad the crit comes in handy.
As for The Brutalizeryou can upgrade it now to Ghostbladeor the way I preffer it, buy another Phantom Dancer. Believe me this is sooo frigin OP you will be unstopable if you jump on your enemy from behind.
For the summoner spells
are the best possible choice and I personally never thought of any other spells.
In early game your main harass tool is rake which takes little mana and does nice dmg so use it when having a good chacne. Also your E is very nice for closing the distance between you and and an enemy champ. As soon as the enemy uses some spells I suggest the E Q W combo and then hitting him a couple of more times. This is a great early game burst and a good way to get kills.
When you reach lvl 6 the fun really starts. As soon as an enemy champ gets a bit low use the combo stated above and u suggest closing the deal with your ult.
When you can go and help out mid and get a kill or two ganking the other lane.
If your ealry game started off well you will destroy the enemy team mid to late game with little to no trouble.
I say again, Rake is very OP early game because of the slow and nice dmg so harass with it as much as you can.
Well guys thats about it and I hope this guide will work for you as well as it worked for me.
Keep in mind that this is my first guide so dont be too harsh :D and any suggestions you may have, I'll be more than happy to hear them.
