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.
Yo welcome to this guide.
I tried out a few games with great succes.
This is probally one of the most cheapest non-support item builds seen on mobafire,and that is the key to this succes.
The build cost under 10k gold, which mean that you get very strong early on! And you will still be a beast lategame.
I find people tend to underestimate Talon's power actually. He almost needs no item, except the BF-Sword within the first 20-25 min of the game to get along, combined with some early CD-reduc.
In this build, Im focusing on CD-reduc, wich allows Talon to "hence" shadowdance always as he pleases.
As we all know, hes described as an assasin. And thats the mindset you need to learn.
It is actually not very common in lol, to play much assasin. People always finds ways to build melee champions with a nice chunk of HP + a trinity and maybe a atmas. Which is many times a great succes.
With Talon, it can pay if, to chance your playstyle a bit.
Try compare Talon with Leblanc, and you will get the idea.
I havn't found a place for Talon in ranked games, since hes role isn't a standard choice.
Jungle Talon I do not know hes way in that though.
I could imagine him as the solotop, but, I do prefer a solotop to be the teams actually main-offtank, since hes getting alot of farm and will be able to early protect the teams ap and ad carry.
He could maybe go with a support in bottom, he get a nice range ablility which can be lethal to oppossing AD.
This is the hardest part.
I actually got a nice way though:
When fight start, and your teams initiating, you can use your "E-skill" and jump to the enemy in the back of the fight, after that, you pop ultimate, and run back behind your own team, and activate your ulti again, by that way, you will do a massive aoe on the whole enemy team.
And you will find youself in a position of safety, and be able to protect your other carrys and help them bring down challengers.
When you got your cd--reduc items, dont be afraid to pop our ulti to quickly vaporize a minionswave.
Utility is the secret of Talons power
Talon is not all about getting the most hardcore items and get 400+ ad!
With this build, you end on respective 240 dmg, around 2,7k hp.
But this build offers so much else...
They key to Talons power, is about utility, utility that allows Talon to enter, flee, hunt with ease. Talon need to get in and- out, very quick and wait for hes cd's to go down.
Atm im considering the pros' and cons', to switch Zhurelya's with Yumo's ghostblade.. dunno yet, need more testin, I have got great experience with Zhurelya's.
