Introduction

*This build is a Work in progress! I will go as in depth as possible throughout Talon's kit, runes, masteries, and the entire game as much as I can! Please leave feedback and let me know why you voted if you did. Thank you!*

I created this build because I see too many talon players build berserker's greaves and AS/Lifesteal/Crit chance/Triforce. These should not be built on Talon (besides a little lifesteal). Talon is not a DPS champ, he's an assassin with a kit made for going in and out of a fight quickly. With this build, you should be bursting AP mids with ease. Talon is not a go-to laner. He can usually screw your team over if your top isn't Kennen, Vlad, Nidalee, etc.

Laning

Pre-6 you mainly want to be farming. You don't really want to spam your w early except for some last hits so you have enough mana to burst the enemy at 6. Once you hit six you can go in with your burst. I recommend E>W>AA>Q>R. Make sure you Q right after your basic attack, as it resets your attack timer. After you kill the opposing mid or drive him out of lane try to help set up a gank at top/bot. You primarily want to be doing this so other lanes are snowballed. Just make sure your lane is pushed before you leave lane and make sure the jungler doesn't catch you. As always, make sure you ward your lane to avoid being ganked.
