Playing Talon Solo top

When you playing Talon solo top you need to be really defensiv and stay so you get the xp but they dosent get freehits on you. Im taking my W as the first spell, beacause it deals alot of damage and its easy to farm minions with. Be sure only to last hit you minion so you always are near at you turret. So be sure you are close to you turret so they dosent get a stun and the kill you. Also be careful of gangs. If they turret hunting you use you ultimate and then you can get away. When you starting attacking some one use the combo of Q and E so you jump in to them and slow them with you Q. Always start with using Q so they get slowed. The reason why you need to slow them is because you passive gives you bonus damage to slowed, stunned, immobilized or suppressed heroes.

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."
