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 is my Talon build. I play Talon since the day he was released and this is still my favorite one.
Talon isn't hard to play, so it's very important to have the right items.
This Talon is a very good mid and late game Champ, because you have many early game damage and armor penetration and in the end game playin' him as an off tank with almost 200 armor and magic resist.
I excuse me for any formal and gramatical misstakes, because I'm german.
Talons skills havn't a big choice of order.
Rake has to be the first one, because it has good early game damage and allows talon to attack Champions over range and last hit minions against other ranged Champions.
Noxian Diplomacy is his main damage skill after you have Sheen or Trinity Force, because it is on-hit effect and you have also the chance to crit by Trinity Force. Anyway you have with Trinity Force +150% Damage and you own Champions just by teleporting to them with Cutthrough and Noxian Blades with tons of damage.
Cutthrough is the last, because the main effect you have just at Rang 1, you can teleport to enemies.
Shadow Assault you max like every ulti at level 6,11,16
There are 2 very effective spell combinations, which allow you to give the most damage Talon deals.
- Start with Rake
- Teleport immediately with Cutthrough to your target
- The first hit you make have to by Noxian Diplomacy, because of Trinity Force
- Activate Shadow Assault
- Run quickly to the other side of your target and close your Shadow Assault
when your target is still alive, give him a few hits, but in the most cases it is not nessesary.
- Teleport to your Target with Shadow Assault
- Hit him with Noxian Diplomacy
- Run like 1-2 meters to the side and activate Rake
- Immediately after activate Shadow Assault
- Run quickly to the other side of your target and close it
the same here: when your target is still alive, give him a few hits.
The First Order allows you to give maximal damage, because the target is slowed until you have Noxian Diplomacy, so you have +10% Damage for it because of your passive.
The Second is when you have a 1 on 1 without any minions, if your target knows, that you'll attack him. You start with Cutthrough, because your target can't use any ability for 1 second. That's your chance and in this one second you can kill the enemy easily.
The only negative aspect is that you activate Rake after Noxian Diplomacy, so your target isn't slowed and you have not the +10% Damage by your passive.
As Summoner Spells I take Exhaust and Flash.
Exhaust allows you to stop your target to make your spell combo and this 2 seconds are enough for it.
Flash allows you to chase enemy champions to get in range for Cutthrough.
I hope you like my guide and don't be too hard, it's my first one ;)
I thought that I should take Talon, because he's my favorite Champ and I excuse me if anyone of you had posted the same item combination before.
This Set allows you to be great in Teamfights in the end game and win every 1 on 1.
Always focuse the carry like Vayne or Graves, you own them in 2-3 seconds with one of the combo's i've posted.
Good luck! :)
