Talon's storyline

Talon's earliest memories are the darkness of Noxus' underground passages and the reassuring steel of a blade. He remembers no 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 mastery of the blade quickly marked him as a threat, and Noxian guilds sent assassins to him with a demand: join their ranks or be killed. He left the bodies of his pursuers dumped in Noxus' moat as his response.

The assassination attempts grew increasingly dangerous until one assailant met Talon blade-for-blade in a match of strength. To his surprise, Talon was disarmed and facing down his executioner's sword when the assassin revealed himself to be General Du Couteau. The General offered Talon the choice between death at his hand, or life as an agent of the Noxian High Command. Talon chose life, 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 secret missions on Du Couteau's orders that took him from the frigid lands of Freljord to the inner sanctums of Bandle City. When the general vanished, Talon considered reclaiming his freedom, but he had gained immense respect from Du Couteau after years in his service. He became obsessed with tracking down the general's whereabouts. Talon's suspicions led him to the doors of the Institute of War, where he joined the League of Legends in order to find those 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. Challenge us, if you dare." Katarina Du Couteau

Welcome to my first ever build here in MOBAFIRE.

I would say that Talon would right now be one of the BEST champions to have/get right now.
This champions LITERALLY shows what is an assassin all about..

Skill Sequence

2 types of Sequences i would recommend:

+ - -

- + -

Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Good choices:
It would be better if you had this, just for convenience from 1 place to another.

I's a combo with his Q
Can easily take them out when they're slowed and debuffed.
Works with his R and helps with escaping or chasing.
It would be fine for debuffs, but im not sure if it comes handy though.
For beginner's use, USE IT!
For beginner's use, actually who would even get this? but it's good though for epic comebacks.
It's a new spell, looks good and feels good. :D
Well yeah, you could gank with this easily.
Talon needs mana a lot since his abilities are making him mana-hungry.

Bad choices:
Supports use this.
Troll spell. Nothing really happens using this, only a big minion.
In Dominion, NO!

Use any type of runes, but it has to be containing AD runes.

But it would be best to get more AD runes to enhance damage.

What to do in Team fights?

In team fights, you should probably be the initiator in my opinion because you have the ability to jump in and jump out while dealing heaps of damage. So it's like using 1 of the sequences together with your Yoummu's Ghostblade fore better armor penetration then BOOM. Your team has a better chance to finish a team fight easily with you .

You're gonna be like him, so badass like.

Creeping / Jungling

I'll show you a video which i found which might be useful for BADASS Talons. :)
His spells for jungling are and
I'm going to build a jungling section but since i never did jungle, LET'S TRY!

Items choices

Definitely would be the best for late game, gives you to slow enemies down while having a good amount of damage and health.

For extra Armor penetration and attack speed :)

Since you get focused a lot -_-

For you know,mobility.

For cool down reduction for faster take-downs.

+40% armor penetration in such a low price?

It's a smashing success with Youmuu's Ghostblade or Last Whisper.

A high price item with GREAT help to his Q.

Mobility with Critical Damage and Attack Speed all in one item?

You could even become an off-tank like --->

Gives you everything, since you have sheen, Q gets enhanced :D
