Talon Talon is one of the easier ones. Same as Zed but he's easier to hit with bombs.

Introduction

Hello everyone, this is my Mid Zil guide. I feel his changes to his bomb make him more difficult but also gives him an even larger upside in team fights. I won't lie landing bombs make laning more difficult. It's ok though, you have a new and improved team fight with your new stun. In this guide I have mapped out two separate item builds as well as runes, masteries, and optimal laning opponents. I will also give you some pro's and cons to this awesome old champ.

Laning Phase

During laning phase if you're having a hard time planting bombs then don't worry about trying to push the enemy champion out of lane; instead get good at planting bombs on minions and pushing the entire lane in. This strat works well against high mobility champs and long distance farmers. (If you're low health and want to make sure your lane doesn't get pushed in to far, plant some bombs on your own minions and then recall. If you are doing well then you should be able to push your lane in then recall without doing this, thus losing less cs.) Against assassins it's about baiting they're all in with speed boost (pre level 6) and ult. After they waste that then it's your time to push back. Start planting bombs and watch them run only to die under turret.
