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.
Talon is a awsome champion he is one of the best burst ad champs. If played correctly he can be so good he can wipe out carries and tanks i the matter of seconds. Talon is a Ad assassin who uses silences and invisibilty to destroy enemies when foes look in terror and run when your stabbing them in the back. With talon I build attack speed crit damage for maximum effectiveness. Ive tested many different builds for talon i used frozen mallet and such but i think tanky dps talon is not a viable build for him he is a assassin and should be played as one with min survivability.
I Go armor pen for i can have true damage
I Go for defensive yellows for i have more survivability
I Go for ad runes for blues for more damage early game dominance
Items are what makes or breaks talon most people dont understand talon because he is a new champion and come up with bad builds that work for 1 game and they think its good.
With this build i can open up with my q crit for 1k and have 800+ auto attacks just raining down on enemies add that with my lifesteal from bloodthirster and you kinda cant die.
I only list 5 items because the 6th item is situational you can get a gaurdians angel if your team is too dependent on you. Or you can get a veil ect.
With this build i 1 v 5 teams with success and my team just sits back and wonders what just happened. Then the other team says talons op because they dont understand how he works.
Pros / Cons
- Amazing burst
- Good escape abilities
- Good early/mid/lategame
- Easy to get firstblood with
- Good cc's with a awsome ult aoe
- Can be squishy but your ult fixes that
- If shut down early game you can be shut down all game unless you farm
- You have to be careful in teamfights
When farming dont waste your ult for farm inless you know there wont be a fight soon. I watch so many talons do this and then they get caught dont have their ult to get away. When farming make sure to use rake to last hit and harrase the enemies. Rake end game will kill minions instantly and will help u get 200+ cs easily. Remember if you can get kills last hit as much as possible and help your team defend turrets dont be the guy sitting top when mid is in trouble.
I use ignite/flash Reasons for this are simple Ignite helps for first blood which can make you have such a advantage early game. Some people go exhaust/flash i used it i didn't like it much i find ignite better because of the true damage and you got a slow from rake.
This build will give u maximum burst and survivability needed to be useful to your team all game. Dont initiate with talon thats your tanks job even though talon has a awsome ult that makes you invisible dont think your god and starting teamfights. Your job is to kill carries when your team is distracting them.
