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.
Welcome to my first guide on Mobafire! Don't be afraid to give me constructive criticism I'm human I can miss stuff too. A few things I should mention before I go any further with the build:
Talon is a badass. (sorry, had to say it)
You will probably be targetted first in team fights.
People are going to whine about Talon being OP cuz of his insane burst. Just ignore them.
SUPER hard to kill once fed.
Never initiate. You will die if you initiate a team fight. You are an assassin, not a tank.
Did I mention he's a badass?
Who is Talon?
Talon is a badass AD burst assassin made to make people cry. I've made countless people ragequit and whine about how OP he is. You should play Ezio err... I mean Talon if you:
Want to be capable of killing most champions mid/late game.
If you want to destory squishies.
Want to be a deadly assassin that can pop out of anyones *** and get a triple kill easily.
Want to play a champion thats harder to play than Win Nhao but just as deadly.
Just want a fun champion :).
Pros / Cons
AMAZING burst. (Can kill squishies in about 2 seconds.)
Unstoppable when fed.
Very low cooldown ult.
Can do really well without many items.
Looks like Ezio.
Just a fun champion to play.
Can get harassed easily.
No real escape tools. (You cant use ult cuz your blades will reveal your position.)
Vulnerable to CC
Staying true to the offensive nature of this build, all of your runes are going to be going towards more killing power. Armor penetration is most important, as has been proven all over the place. You want more damage, get more armor penetration. Seals and Glyphs are dedicated to attack speed, because Talon benefits from it A LOT. Just trust me, you want it.
Offensive masteries, nothing special. And dont forget, GRAB THE BUFFS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE ESPECIALLY RED BUFF. Make use of his passive.
Dorans Blade: I feel that Dorans blade is the perfect item for Talon early game. Makes him abit less squishy, and give him a decent damage bosst early game.
Berserker Boots: Everyone needs their boots no?
The brutaliser: Build this into a Ghostblade.
Yoummus Ghostblade: I feel the CDR, crit strike and ArP are something Talon needs. DONT FORGET TO USE THE ACTIVE. It saves lives.
The Bloodthirster: This item imo is the best of all the BF sword items. +100 damage and 25% lifesteal once you farm the passive. Just make sure you dont die or you lose the passive effect.
Infinity edge: 80 damage and 25% crit? Yes please.
Frozen Mallet: This item is BY FAR the best item you can get on Talon. It guarantess the 10% extra damage you get from your passive.
Rest of the items are situational, but get Last whisper if your enemies are stacking armour ans Banshees veil if you need defense vs the enemy teams casters.
You usually want to initiate with your E. After that you want to ult. I mentioned before that you cant use this to escape, but you can make use of the bonus movespeed to run from enemies. Anyways after you land E, ult hit them once and activate Q. This resets your auto attack timer.If they start to run Use W. This usually gets you a kill or 2 or take up most of the enemy champions HP so you can chase them down with exhaust. A neat little trick I do (this needs some practice to land) is I hide in the bush like Pedobear and wait for an enemy champion to pass by. Ult in the bush, and quickly use Cutthroat on the enemy champion. This guarentees most, if not all, your blades to hit your enemy. Most squishies will either be really hurt, or at about 50% hp so you can just finish them off with the rest of your spells.
To sum up T-dog:
Play like an assasin not a tank.
Dont run away from team fights cuz you might die. Chances are, with you R and W, you can hurt all enemy champions and be the reason you won the team fight and the game. Basically dont be a selfish *****.
Remember your 1-2-3-4 combo.
Try keeping red buff up at ALL TIMES.
Thank you for reading my guide! This is just a breif summary of Talon and i'll be updating it in the future and the coming patches. P.S WissamTheMau5 is an *******.
