Introduction

Hey Community this Kronological here, and as I am I'm sure everyone was pretty excited about playing the new champ Talon. Some scream OP some scream Broken, but truth be told this guy is pretty spot on to what he is supposed to be. "High Risk, High Reward" so meaning high damage but die at your own risk. I have created this build which will give you high damage early, mid, and late game and will also grant u the survivability you need to withstand those epic team fights.

Runes

Marks*

9x-Greater Mark of Desolation: Do more damage all game

Seals*

9x-Greater Seal of Resilience: Early game survivability

Glyphs*

9x-Greater Glyph of celerity: These glyphs will help u spam those awesome skills and will scale into late game along with your items cds

Quints*

2x- Quint of Swiftness 1x-Quint of Desolation: Basically adds to more of you arp for more dmg scaling and the swiftness can help with early game chasing or survivability.

Masteries

I go with the typical 21/0/9 DPS mastery setup for maximized damage output.

Items

Ok so here we are with the ever important item build. Of course as everyone know items can be completely situational, However there is something I must make known in the core. Trinity Force really sets this guy off as in ZOMG. Reasoning, Q-Applies sheen proc, The slow from Tri-Force will synergies with his passive for more dmg, and of course the extra movement speed, crit, health, and attack speed is always a plus.

Ok so let me break down the combo that make him most effective with his sheen proc:

W-slow, E-blink,silence, (amplified dmg on next hit), Q-Applies sheen proc, bleed, and the amplified damage from your E (ZOMG!!), R- To ecape if needed or to finish the job.

kk so thats pretty much gonna be your combo


As for your boots - I recommend Merc treads CC can be your worst nightmare

Brutilizer- Stays in you inventory pretty much unless you can finish the last item for the yoyo if the game goes on that long

I.E. - Really if you have questions about this then may you seek help for not knowing your own answer lol.

"The Omen" - ZOMG - Ok this item is awesome on Talon. Armor, Health, Health Regen, Passive- CD, and chance to slow attackers movent and attack speed. Active- Slow attack speeds and movement speeds. Whats not to like about this on Talon!!!

Blood Thirster- Yep more damage and that life steal you might have been missing out on.

YoYo - yep if the game still going, go ahead and finish that GhostBlade but im sure you already been raping face by this time and the team has prolly already surrendered.

Summary

Alright guys that is pretty much it for now.


Srry about the images not being in the chapters atm I will get them in as soon as I get more time to update. I will try to make it a little more colorful too ^^. However I wanted to get this guide out for Talon because this guy is just awesome. Please show the guide a little love for the moment :) and I will be making this guide even better as time passes on for all of our lovely community to see.
