Hi

Hi MOBAfire users and other LoL fans - this is my first build and im bringing you Talon - The Blade's Shadow.
Keep scrolling down and we'll talk runes!


Guide Top

Runes

For runes i go Greater Mark of Desolation x9, Greater Seal of Resilience x5, Greater Seal of Warding x4, Greater Glyph of Focus x9 and Greater Quintessence of Desolation x3.
Here's why:
Desolation runes: Works perfectly on almost any AD champ and boost your performance both early and late game.
Armor /MR Seals: Talon is EXTREMELY squishy, so a couple of armor/MR seals helps alot early game.
Glyphs: I go Greater Glyph of Focus on Talon because he is dependt on his Abilities.
However, Graeter Glyph of Warding works fine aswell if you dont want to be burst down by brand etc.

Items

The item build above is my standard build, it gives tons of AD, CDR, ArPen, and that Sheen works really good with your combo system. Feel free to exchange this to (some examples):

Frozen Mallet: Really a GREAT item on talon, but not always necessary if you got the Trinity.
Bloodrazor: Works fine if your up against heavy tanks, but you wont be auto attacking that much.
The Black Cleaver: Also works fine, however i dont feel that this item is as strong as the above on Talon.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Works fine:
Flash: Really my favorite spell on ALL champs in LoL, allows you to do crazy stuff and still get away.
Ghost: Also a good chase/escape spell, however i like flash more.
Exhaust: Great spell to stop the enemy from running away.
Ignite: Deals tons of dmg early and late game and decreases their Hp Reg. Really nice spell.

Works:
Cleanse: A good choice against heavy CC teams.
Teleport: Allows you to get around the map easy and quick.

All other spells are not really necessary on Talon.

Spell Combo

For maximum DMG output on Talon, you always want to go:
E - auto attack - Q - W

For even MORE dmg: Simply add in the Ulti in the combo, it does tons of dmg.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:
- High Burst DMG
- Fun to play as
- Great Ulti with low CD
- Can easily DESTROY other AD Champs

Cons:
- Squishy
- Pretty weak early game
- Takes some skill, not that much, but some.
- Without CDR your not going to do well.
- Weak escapeability if Ulti is on CD, and pretty weak even with Ulti ready.

Summary

Talon is a great, fun and awesome looking assasin type champ - however i do not believe he is for everyone.
If you dont enjoy squishy champs,do NOT buy Talon.
If you love bursting down enemies in 2 secs: Great, Talon is the champ for you.

I feel that Talon is really balanced, strong but not OP.
He takes some skill to master, but as long as you can farm you will do fine.
If your not a great farmer you will NOT have succes and play well with Talon, since he is VERY,VERY item dependent.

I hope you enjoyed this build and champ as much as i do :D
