The ultimate goal for Talon is to get 600 attack damage and 100% lifesteal. How do we do this? It's simple. All you need is Bloodthirsters. Now, before you tell me that's "stupid" or "that's not how you play Talon" well I got news for you: You're wrong. 5 Bloodthirsters is a core strategy for Talon.

With you're rune's, you're going to want the arrows, the cups, and the shells. Without these, you are useless and should feel bad.

Skill Sequence

Rake is what you want to get. It gets you those sweet sweet frags you've always dream about late at night doing your Rapid Eye Movement exercises. You get you're Noxian Diplomacy for almost the same reason. Everyone knows that without frags, you can't stack Bloodthirsters. Once you get you're first bloodthristers, don't worry about not getting frags, because at this point they are guaranteed. Don't feel bad about steeling peoples kills, because once you tell them what you are building, they will gladly surrender any kills they would have gotten to you. Lastly, you're going to want to max you're cutthroat, not to get some frags, but to piss the **** out of those noobs you already fragged earlier. Above all, you're going to want to max you're ulti first.

Others might tell you to get things like frozen mallets, inf edges, or tiamats, but don't listen to them. All you need are blood thirsters. Start off with a doran blade, don't worry, that 3% life steal will come in handy later. Get either ninja tabis or merc trends, depending on whether they have an akali or not. After you build boots, get 3 more doran blades. This will give you those sweet sweet frags. You should end up with about 100 AD with 15% lifesteal. That's good, because you need frags. After you get about 15 kills on mid lane noobs, you should be able to afford your first Best Friend Sword. From there on, you just build Blood Thirsters. After your first blood thirster, don't be afraid to take minion kills. What I like to do is travel to other lanes and get their minion kills, seeing as my lane is already missing their inhibitor. If someone like Ryze or Malzahar is getting blue buff, take it because it adds those thrister stacks and keeps you full mana. You need full mana, otherwise you can't carry.

Team Work

Make sure you inform your teammates of your build before the game starts. You can only synergize with your team if you inform them to give you all the kills. Otherwise, they may be confused and try to get kills themselves. Another important thing is to remind the jungler to always offer you the buffs unless he is Lee Sin, which in this case is useless and needs all the help he can get, unless he is playing BRUCE LEE SIN in which case he can have all the buffs because he is playing a good champion.

Do not tell other lanes you're ganking, otherwise, they may be tempted into getting one of your frags. Alternatively, just headshot the entire lane and carry on. Be sure to remind your teammates to strategically feed them so they are always worth 300+ gold.

Pros / Cons

Talon is almost the perfect champion, but he does have his cons. Here is a list.


• He is AD.

• He cannot die.

• Normally, other champions can't turret dive their whole team, but in this case I would recommend it.

• His Q allows him to attack twice at the same time. Time it right and you should be able to two hit a Rammus using the bowser skin.

• His ulti can be timed correctly to get a penta kill, use this wisely.

• His Rake is the most overpowered skill in the game.

• His Noxian Diplomacy is the most overpowered skill in the game.

• Renegade Talon is the second most overpowered skin in the game. (Only Second to Bruce Lee Sin)

Ranked Play

I recommend getting fed and your ELO should rise dramatically so you can finally be as good as Phreak.
