Threats to Talon with this build
|Lux||Lux is fragile in all stages of the game, and she has no escape abilities. In early game, level 2-3 try to kill her, engage when her Q is on cooldown.|
Talon is a Assasin, Melee, AD, Stealth champion i League of Legends. He is played either on mid, or on top. He has weak early game, doesn´t farm too well early, but post level six, he can kill almost anybody, due his high burst. He can escape with his ultimate, and can juke skillshots, with his cutthroat.
Passive - Mercy
Talon deals 10% increased damage with auto attacks to targets that are movement impaired. That can help you executing targets, when you or youre ally aplyes CC on them.
Q - Noxian Diplomacy
Youre next auto attack deals additional damage and causes the target to bleed. It reveals the location of the target. It is a powerfull ability to harras with in combination with his E - cutthroat. Take it either in level 1, or 2, or 3 and max second.
W - Rake
Talon sends out a volley of blades that then return back to him, dealing physical damage every time it passes through an enemy. Additionally the enemy is slowed for a short
duration. This can quickly kill the minion wave later in game. Its good harrasment ability early. Take it at level 1, or 2 and max it first.
E - Cutthroat
Talon instantly appears behind his target, briefly slowing them and amplifying his damage against that target. This can juke skillshots flying to you by using it on the caster. I take cutthroat at level 2 or 3 and max it last.
R - Shadow Assault
Talon gains stealth and aditional movement speed and sends out a ring of blades around him. When Talon goes out from invisibility, the blades converge on his location. Each time the blade moves throw an enemy, Shadow Assault deals physical damage to them. This can be used eighther as an escape, or in teamfights to damage all the enemy champions, or to execute a single target with the R, Q, E, R, AA, W... combo. Take it whenever it is available.
Roam, cooperate with your teammates and whenever theres a low or easily killed champion on a lane, go there and execute. Ward, keep an eye on the enemy jungler and the opposing laner when thy gank to countergank, or not to go too agresive in a lane. In teamfights, choose one target, go for the squishies - ADC, APC, and execute them. Try to make your jungler give you blue and set up early ganks to dominate your lane and carry the game.
Early in game, Talon is not good at farming. Try to last hit wih autoattacks, and when the minions and the player are in one lane (even better when the minons are low) hit them with your W. After getting tiamat, hydra, farming will be much easier. Late game you just W and use hydra, maybe few AA and have the wave.
