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.
This guide is not yet fully finished and its focused mainly on early mid game in solo or mid lane. I started playing talon as he was released and was trying to create my own build for him while he was still fresh champ and when I was almost done I found TrickShot's build which was almost the same to what I used.(Basically its TrickShots's modified build so credit goes to him too). But after a while when I started facing lots of range champs and was forced to take mid in few games I found my self in trouble as most of the time I was forced to hug the turret not even think about normal farm or even harassing. So starting with Doran's Blade or Boots of Speed and Health Potion was not an option that's when I started to play with regen items. I know most of u like playing him pure AD but I like some surv as well its just how I play. I dont play premade only solo so depending on team mates doesn't work sometimes to go pure AD :D
P.S. Sorry for my bad english
Well nothing really to say here its basic rune setup I would not change anything except for Gliph's you can go flat cdr but I just like that few points in m resist if I face ap champ in mid.
Now first I tried Regrowth Pendant and building it into Philosopher's stone and with that on I could let my self be hit few times and spam Rake all day long and don't bother to try and hit some minions to try and regen some life. Now the crazy thing was when I started playing him mid like this. Ashe, Cait, Vlad, Oriana, Karth,Kata, Akali so far these champs I faced and totally dominated the lane even vald was pushed back and had to play under the turret. After a while I noticed I actually lack some dmg early on and I really don't like to buy, sell, buy sell items so I started using Rejuvenation Bead and Faerie Charm later on building them into Tiamat and I'm really glad couse that was just what I needed.
Now after u finish Tiamat what to buy next depend on situation you either get B.F.Sword and Sheen or try and get some m resits if u need that if dont then replace it either with The Bloodthirster or Frozen Mallet or Thornmail if u face auto attackers.
If you face Karth I suggest Banshee's Veil instead of FON and if you face heavy CC team Quicksilver Sash
Well my is the same as most of the Talon builds. And the combo usage the same Cutthroat auto attack auto attack this usually is deadly if not no worries couse all your skills must be up again so just finish it. Dont hesitate to use ulty with this build its 24 s cd never initiate with it unless you can c all the opponents on the map and are sure you wont gonna be chased your ulty is finishing blow and perfect escape mechanism.
I would not pick any thing else couse u will need every single escape mech u can have as u will be targeted first (of course not if u suck :D)
Really pretty simple just spam Rake and try to hit enemy too I also take wolfs and lizards every time I can and if no one else is jungling. I saw some Talons try and farm with Noxian Diplomacy never do that its not worth the mana you spend on single target.
I hope u will like this build remember its not I jump in get a kill and go b with 50 hp build it's for maximum solo lane holding and please dont say it's useless before u try it. I'm not saying u cant kill with it you do if u play smart in fact I usually have 1-2 kills before I even finish brutalizer and boots of lucidity so I guess you have to adapt to it. And for those who will ask why I wont build The Bloodthirster first I have 2 reasons 1- I hate stack items and the fact that u lose all your stacks 2 - I dont rely on life steal so I take solid item IE instead.
Some scores of mine
I know its not very good but its not a disaster too :D
