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.
This is how i enjoy playing Talon!
Talon is an excellent champion. My hat goes off to riot for this one. There isn't a lot more to say! this guide isn't wordy so please read the whole thing before judging.
Please note: this guide was made for those who want to do insane damage and have a high number of kills. If your not interested in this please try another talon guide. for those who want to continue - read on!
I choose this mastery build because you will have some expensive items in this build so getting that extra gold really helps. also it never hurts to have more exp than the guy across from you.
Could another Set-up work?
Why would you want to? talon is full AD and you need plenty of gold to let an AD champion show what they are made of.
Why is there no defensive items in this build?
I use talon for exactly what he was made for, Ambushing! Talon puts king in ganking. you wont need defensive items if your playing him correctly.
- If you must use a defensive item and you wont be persuaded by what i say then base your item on whose giving you the most trouble. mainly because talon is great 1v1 and you should have an enemy dead within a matter of seconds.
Pros / Cons
Easy to engage/flee fights
Low armor/magic resist
You'll start off with Rake. This is very important! Rake will be your money maker. You can also use it to harass the enemy to no end. Farm as many creeps as you can. Do not tower dive! Let them come to you at the beginning. You also have 3 health potions to allow you to lane as long as possible before you go back to get more items. You might not get very many kills early game, mostly assist and creep kills.
By now you should have enough items to do some pretty good damage. Still remember to farm creeps. Your build still has a lot of improvement. Its hard to turn the tides if you die a lot at the beginning so be careful watch for ganks. Talon is an easy target to gank whenever his ultimate is on Cooldown. By mid game you should be scoring a few kills. Talon is built for ambushes so don't be afraid to cross lanes and pick off a loner.
IF you have made it through early and mid game with little to no trouble this is where your kills will just start piling up. You should be close to finishing your build. Don't forget to use Ghost blade!
Talon's combo is simple ... there's nothing to it. Start with Rake > activate NoxD> ultimate > ghost blade > cutthroat . this combo is quick. Do it as fast as you can press it. Let your knives converge when you use cutthroat. then continue to melee then down. Should be no problem. Also remember your cutthroat is a silence too. You should have plenty of lifesteal and attack speed that 1v1 fights will be a joke.
In team fights you don't want to be in the lane. Everyone is mad at you by this point. You will get targeted first. Sit back and relax. Let the tank go first and watch as there team blows their cooldowns. That will be your Queue . Focus on one champion preferably the one with lowest armor. Team fights are your strong suit but sometimes you have to do things you don't like.
