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.

Introduction

A quick guide to jungle Talon the way I play it thanks to the new masteries.


Guide Top

Runes

As he isn't as suited for the task as any other jungler, Talon needs a lot to AS to make jungle efficient without having to spend gold on AS items during the game.

Apart from that, I assumer Armor Pen and Armor are obvious choices.

Creeping / Jungling

I usually start at banshees, smite the big one, rake the others and kill them (do NOT take a pot for now). Take your first pot as you get closer to the wolves and rake to pull them, focus the big one, pick your new skill and use both Q and W to finish the wolves. Take your second pot about halfway to golems, kill the first one and smite the second one (you might want to try and save some mane for ganks). Once you hit lvl 3, get your E, take a pot and head for a gank.

This is when things get serious : to be efficient, you will need at least 770 gold before you head back to shop. This is because you need the madred and 2 pots to take blue easily after your first back and still be able to gank effectively.

When you hit lvl 3 you will take your third potion : this leaves you with your 3 skills + 2 pots for ganks. Don't back before you have 770 gold ! You can gank and then do banshees/wolves/golems again (they repop every 1:40') to earn that much needed-gold.

Skill Sequence

Talon is a reallly good jungler thanks to his skills. He won't be able to farm like crazy before having equipment, but he is probably one of the best gankers out there. He has a dash/silence a slow and an escape move on top of a more than decent damage output. With a well-coordinated team, Talon's ganks are fearsome and deadly. Try having a tank solotop that has some CC and you will easily pressure the top lane.

The skill sequence is pretty obvious : you dash with E, hit with Q and slow with W. Enjoy :p.

Items

You can use any kinda stuff you want with Talon, my choices vary from game to game as I adapt to the enemy team. If you need HP then you might want to get Phage early, or you can take an early BF if you're getting fed, etc...

It's all up to you depending on the situation and the enemy team.

I strongly recommend getting BT asap after Lanter+boots because the life steal will be of great help while jungling, allowing you to not back and gank a lot more often.

Conclusion

I made this guide really quickly to show people a build that I think works very well for Talon. Please try it, enjoy and comment !!! I can update the guide with any idea someone posts in comments !!

Thx for reading !
