Talon - The OverPowered Noob
Hello people first i want to say that i don't reefer Talon to a noob campion. the title's hidden meaning is
"The noob's guide to an overpowered Talon!"
Talon is difficult to play in the early game and it is important to creep as much as you can while harassing the enemy. and creep buff's and money from the side quests even in early game, just go b to restore your health or you can be sure of that the enemy will kill you.
i hope you find this guide useful or that u can build your own guide that may be better whit the stuff i have talked about . have a good LOL game!
Talon, The Blade's Shadow
Talon’s earliest memories are the darkness of Noxus’ underground passages and the reassuring steel of a blade. He has no memory of family, warmth, or kindness. Instead, the clink of stolen gold and the security of a wall at his back are all the kinship he has ever craved. Kept alive only by his quick wits and deft thievery, Talon scraped out a living in the seedy underbelly of Noxus. His incredible skills with the blade earned him great notoriety. Various guilds sent assassins against him with a demand: join their ranks or be killed. His response was to leave the bodies of his pursuers stuffed in a dark corner or dumped in Noxus’ moat. Having lived on the streets, Talon knew better than to waste – he claimed a blade from every failed attempt on his life, gathering a seemingly endless collection of weaponry.
The assassination attempts grew increasingly dangerous until one assailant met Talon blade-for-blade in a match of strength. To his astonishment, Talon was disarmed. He was facing down his executioner’s sword when the assassin revealed himself to be General Du Couteau. The General offered Talon the standard of life that befitted an agent of the Noxian High Command in exchange for his allegiance. Talon accepted on the condition that his service was to Du Couteau alone, for the only type of orders he could respect were from one he could not defeat. Talon remained in the shadows, carrying out assassinations on Du Couteau’s orders until the day that the general disappeared. Talon’s suspicions led him to the doors of the Institute of War, where he joined the League of Legends in order to find the parties responsible for Du Couteau’s disappearance.
“The three deadliest blademasters in all of Valoran are bound to the house of Du Couteau: my father, myself, and Talon.” – Katarina Du Couteau
Talon - Items
It is useful to assure that Talon has his armor, damage, cool-down, and health in the early game.
That is why i by my items as listed above -> "Items". if you a able to get your money, levels, and then the listed items you will be Overpowered! and of corse there is an amount of skill required to get as Overpowered as i want this guide to be. but be reasonable in the game and chance is not an option, but the option points only to one thing a killing!
I think the Items have a good structure of balance true out the game to make Talon Strong on his weakness and Greatness
if you want your movement to be faster and u fell like your health is good then i may want to change out the ninja boots for some boots of swiftness to add an extra movement speed i haven't done that my self, yet. but i guess i well try it at one point.
Talon can survive whit a good score having a afk lane teammate.
Remember to stay passive and crepe and try to save the healing potion. before you go back to base you would need to push your lain and have one healing potion stored for when u go back. When you have pushed the lain sow that the enemy has to creep to get to the turret run to the quest minions and slay, maybe use the health potion there and get that money! if necessary call a team member to hold the lain.
the flash and egnite:
use them well and only use egnite for a kill - when the enemy as low health and you have "no spells". pulling the egnite of in the very start of a match i not to bad but only in the start you will most likely get et back before you have to go b sow that you can use it for the kill.
And if you pull it of well the first time along whit the first spell and a mele hit you might force them to use there potion ore heal.
remember to look ad your enemy's summoner spells sow you can prevent them from using it when it's most unexpected. That's a good ace to have in your back pocket..
Having to go back in the start of a match: lev 1 - 3 really weakness you. and you have to creep harder !!!! creep creep ! do it !!
Mercy (Passive): Talon deals more damage with his basic attacks to any target that is slowed, stunned, immobilized, or suppressed.
Noxian Diplomacy: Talon's next basic attack deals an additional physical damage. If the target is a champion, they will bleed, taking additional physical damage over a period of time and revealing their location for the duration.
Rake: Talon sends out a volley of daggers 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.
Cutthroat: Talon instantly appears behind his target, silencing them and amplifying his damage against that target.
Shadow Assault (Ultimate): Talon disperses a ring of blades and gains stealth while gaining additional Movement Speed. When Talon emerges from stealth, the blades converge on his location. Every time a blade passes through an enemy, they receive physical damage.
Tips and Tricks:
After optimizing Talon Build, one should also keep in mind certain characteristics that are proven to be important in the game.
In early game Talon is very squishy [resembling Vayne or Ashe], however in mid and late game he becomes very deadly, especially in team fights. When using Talon, like it was referred before, it isn’t just the Talon Build that can help players, as one should also keep in mind how to use his unique abilities and take the full advantage of them.
Like any new champion in the League of Legends, Talon is going to be over powered until the next corrective patch. It can be already seen in game, that his unique abilities can change the balance of the battles. One thing is for sure, it seems Riot really exaggerated on his abilities and damage possibilities, so enjoy it will it last.
So, take advantage of this Talon build and use it to the fullest!
