Hi in this build and guide i will show how i play Talon and what not to doa with Talon

Guide Top



Greater Mark of Armor Penetration

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Armor Penetration

I use the greater mark of desolation and greater quintessence of desolation because Talon is a burst damage champ and he needs the much of armor penetration that he can gets.

I use the Greater Seal of Armor and Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist because talon also needs some armor and magic resistance.

Guide Top



In this choise is nothing to explanexcept why i chose to put the other 9 in defend instead of utility because i think that Talon is a bit sckuishy and with that he can handel more damage.

Item Sequence

The Bloodthirster

Trinity Force

Last Whisper

Youmuu's Ghostblade

Infinity Edge

i chose the Ionian Boots of Lucidity because i don't do a Youmuu's Ghostblade and talon needs some cooldwon reduction

the most important isWHY I DON'T DO A Frozen Mallet because with talon you never should do a Trinity Force is wath you should do because with Trinity Force you have the bonus damage and more movement speed and the mana and you still have the 25% of slow the anemy.

I don´t do Youmuu's Ghostblade because i always forget to active the item and i don´t use because of that.

Never do atack speed items with talon instead Trinity Force and youmuu's goshtblade

Items that work well with talon

it's a great item for Talon because it gives armor penetration, cooldown reduction and a active ability that gives 20% movement speed and 50% os atack speed for 4 seconds. Attacking enemies with melee attacks increases the duration by 2 seconds to a maximum of 8 seconds. (60 second cooldown).

because it gives 80 damage and 25 critical chance but this item is really good because of his unique passice that makes you critical hits deal more 50%.

I only advise doing this item if you already have a Trinity Force never replace Trinity Force for a Frozen Mallet
But if you do a Frozen Mallet is not so bas because gives ou more 700HP and with his passive ability you deal more 10% damage because of Talon passive ability Mercy.

Talon can use this if you are feed and wan't to keep your killing spree because gives armor and magic resistance but the real helpfull ability on this item is her passive ability: Revives your Champion upon death, restoring 750 Health and 375 Mana. This effect can only occur once every 5 minutes.

This is the second best magic resistance item for Talon because gives a nice amount of magic resistance but also gives you damage and have 2 awesome passive abilities:+1 Attack Damage for every 2.5% health missing. If you would take magic damage which would leave you at less than 30% of your maximum health, you gain a shield which absorbs 400 magic damage for 5 seconds. 60 second cooldown.

This is the best item for talon and i advise to buy this item is the enemy team have a lot of CC champs because with this item you can remove all debuffs from your champion. 90 second cooldown. what makes talon more dangeours because he can escape to ultis like Amumu Galio Nautilus and much more abilities.

This is also a viabel item for Talon because it gives him more defend, and more lifesteal that will give to Talon more substance in lane and will ofear him a free ward to put in the bushes and know when the enemy comes to gank him.

I create a new chapter so speak about this because a lot of people speak that it's better for talon do this others says that talon is a burst damage champ that don't needs atamog for nothing and only makes him weak.

Frist of all i will explane what atamog is.Atamog is the combination of 2 items a Warmog's Armor and a Atma's Impaler.

People that use this says that this is good because makes talon survive more easily on team fights and don't make him squishy.

My personal opinion i don't like atamog because the time that takes for make a Warmog's Armor and a Atma's Impaler i already have a The Bloodthirster and a Trinity Force and a nice score and with that 2 items you give more damage and probably you already win the game just with that.Do Talon tanky is almost like make a mage champ ad carry sometimes don't work well and needs people with skill to make a nice score because you don't do damage for a wiel and Talon needs damage to be a successfull assassian.

If you like a Talon more tanky do atamog and if you don't like it tanky do my build.

Summoner Spells


this can't help talon.

Guide Top


When you farm with Talon try to use Rake to finish the minions and the enemy.

Only when you have your lane pushed and with a ward in the bushes atack because if your lane is not pushed the minions will damage you and some minions are very OP.
If you have your lane pushed and you atack your enemy and you don´t have a ward you probably will be ganked and feed the other team.
