Introduction

With that build you'll have:

1. Enough ARP and AD to nuke your enemies in few seconds and make them cry.

2. Enough CDR (Cooldown Reduction) on level 18 to nuke your enemies every 20-30 seconds only with your ultimate.

3. Enough survivability to run away from every gank and back door your enemy turrets only by yourself and stay alive even when the enemy team try to kill you!

Runes

Marks - 9x Armor Penetration Marks. Talon is like the most AD DPS Champions, he needs ARP!

Seals - 5x Health Per Level Seals and 4x Dodge %. Talon is very squishy early-mid game, the dodge will save your life.

Glyphs - 9x Cooldown Reduction Per Level Glyphs. Talon have some CD problems but when you have 10%+ CDR from runes ONLY you won't have any problems

Quintessence - 2x Armor Penetration Quintessences and 1x Cooldown Reduction per Level Quintessence. Everything is up there ^ .

Creeping / Jungling

RED BUFF - The red buff is so useful for Talon in early-mid game, get it as soon as possible and try to have it always until you get Frozen Mallet


BLUE BUFF - The blue buff is very useful for Talon too. To be honest i haven't experience mana problems but i like that buff because of the cooldown reduction, get the buff if you have that opportunity.

Masteries

MaximizeSorcery instead ofAlacrity. I think its a lot better to have almost 1% Cooldown Reduction instead of 1% Attack Speed, its really not noticeable. At the whole game you need both Red and Blue buff that's why you needUtility Master, you really don't needGreed when you farm minions that fast, 1 gold every 10 seconds/6 gold per minute come on that really sucks, its useless if you ask me.

Summoner Spells

From the most gang's you can't run only with you ultimate, you need something more. You can get:






NEVER EVER get:that really sucks you will die in almost every gang, you always need some more survivability don't forget that your super squishy early game!

Skill Sequence

It's really better to maximizeRake beforeNoxian Diplomacy. Rake allows you to farm creeps much faster which helps you feed faster.Cutthroat is not that useful from the damage side so i don't have to discuss it, just get it at level 3-4 and leave it at rank 1 until level 14. GetShadow Assault as soon as possible

Team Work

Talon is good on lane with champs that got good CC (crowd control) such asSion,Taric andAshe

Is always good if the team mate on your lane is support/tank which means that he can pass you kills which means you will get fed faster. In team fights don't go first like a tank, just wait the last moment and use your ultimate as fast as you can, try to kill as much as you can enemies but don't let your team mates die!

Items

Ionian Boots of Lucidity, Mercury Treads, Boots of Swiftness, Boots of Mobility instead of Berserk's Greaves.
Buy Ionian Boots of Lucidity if you want more cooldown reduction.Buy Mercury Treads if there are a lot of Ability Power champions in the enemy team.Buy Boots of Swiftness if you want to be faster, you can catch your enemies easier and run from lane to lane faster.Buy Boots of Mobility if you prefer to be a ganker.

You can getLast Whisper instead ofBlack Clever if the enemy tank have a lot of armor.
Don't get it otherwise. Black Clever gives you a lot of attack speed which you need.

You can getQuicksilver Sash instead of Youmuu's Ghostblade. Quicksilver Sash is very useful if the enemy team have a lot ofExhausts get it as soon as possible in mid/late game if that's right.
Get what you think is right for you but don't forget to activate them when you have to!

You can buyGuardian's Angel if you want 2 life's instead of something, just keepInfinity Edge andFrozen Mallet!

It's very hard to kill tanks with that build so if you want you can exchange something forMadred's Bloodrazor, you can buyElixir of Agility after purchasing Madred's Bloodrazor so you can increase your attack speed.

Trinity Force or Frozen Mallet

If you want a little more damage and attack speed purchaseTrinity Force, if you want more survivability and non stop slow purchaseFrozen Mallet.I personally prefer Frozen Mallet because it has 100% chance to slow your target which means your passive will work on every hit, purchase price is lower and increases your health a LOT which means your not super squishy anymore. DON'T GET THEM BOTH, seriously you don't need them both!

Conclusion

It's my first build, i accept any criticism. Doesn't have that much information but i think that's enough, don't know what more to add! It's not that colorful and beautiful for the eye like the other guides but i don't think that will change your gameplay or something. This guide will be updated and hopefully it will have better looking. And please before downvote try it :)
Thank you all for reading my guide!
