Introduction

First off, this is a guide for my buddy whom can't rely on teammates (solo/duoque) and doesn't have the best mechanics. I created it for him, as a replacement for the "pro" builds that assume these things

You WILL be roaming with him, so make sure to go top/bot/help your jungler invade and tell your team you will be doing so. Ganking the bot lane and getting a double also means you can grab dragon if you're still high on Hp and have a Jungler to help.

Just a few things to remember when picking talon:

GO MID, anything else and I slap you

Pick him against

-Ahri
-Morgana
-Kassadin
-Lux
-Katarina
-Veigar

Be careful of these guys, they will destroy you in lane.
-Sion
-Pantheon
-Morde
-Fizz
-Tryn

Runes

  • Quints:
    MS, MS is good on everybody, TALON should be roaming/needs to dodge skillshots. The sheer utility they give is amazing, and because of your lack of mechanics (no offfense) you can chase/run away much better now
  • Marks(reds):
    ARPEN is what we're running here, since pure AD won't help as much as the ARMOR PEN against your AP opponents
  • Seals(yellows):
    ARMOR PER LEVEL!
    Since I know you own these, use em. You're not picking talon against an AD mid and as long as you wait till ~lvl 5 to roam you're all good
  • Glyhps(blues):
    You're fighting AP mids, so you need the FLAT MR more than the SCALING for those early levels.

Masteries

Standard, good damage and regen. You don't need AS/Crit so we went for CDR and LifeSteal

Items

Start Boots+3 pots, NEVER ANYTHING ELSE.
Use HP pots when your getting harrassed/low after a trade. Boots help you JUKE/DODGE skillshots too, and mid champs have those

DOUBLE DORANS OP: Win your lane/good dmg to roam. Sell later in the game

BRUTALIZER FTW: This item is amazing, build it and then later MAYBE build Ghostblade. But jesus I love this item. AD, CDR, ARPEN its the perfect item for Talon


REST: Standard, make sure to build situational too. If they have AP Mid + AP top/jungle grab an early HEXDRINKER right around/before you get your Bloodthirster. Upgrade it later into a Maw

Build LW if they have high armor, else chill

Skill Sequence

Q is great, so much damage but sadly you can't make every trade up close without going too far in. So we're taking W first, don't spam it or anything though. That is how you lose your mana before you are even lvl 4. E is last, its mainly for utility to pop on them and silence the carry in lane/gap closer to Ad carry later in teamfights after twenty minutes.

COMBO IN LANE BEFORE SIX: E to enemy, AUTO ATTACK, Q, AUTO ATTACK, W/Run. If you run, use W as you run.

COMBO WHEN GANKING: Ping, E, AUTO ATTACK, Q, AUTO ATTACK, R/W, ignite IF NOT DEAD/MIGHT HEAL.


Why auto attack? YOUR Q resets the auto attack timer, meaning if you use it right after an auto attack you get another free one super quick. Its like 2 attacks + q damage for only 1 attacks time. Do this combo fast (comes with time) and you can either A) harass that morgana like a bamf B) KIll DAT GUY, HE STOLE YOUR COOKIE (THAT GUY BEING THE CARRIES OR THE LANE YOU GANK)

Summoner Spells

Flash-Best spell in game, use to escape not offense. You need to save it to get out if you have to, you aren't quite there to judge if its worth it to use it offensively. Make sure to jump over walls with it if your being chased and can't escape.

Pros / Cons

Swexy mofo, kills teh enemy

Team Work

LANING:
Go top/bot every time you have ult and tell your teammates you coming to help. get your teamates kills so you can carry harder/ they carry harder

TEAM FIGHTS:
Don't initate, let your teamates soak up CC then DIVE ONTO DAT CARRY

Early: SILENCE AND KILL THAT DAMN AP CARRY

Late: JUST DEMOLISH DAT AD CARRY, HE STOLE YOUR COOKIE. GO GET YOUR COOKIE BACK
