[12.15] Masters Talon Guide | Builds, Runes, & All

By DabiDabi
Introduction
I am aspiring to become the Rank 1 Talon. And so I have made the decision to share my knowledge with ya, and put in all of the information I have gained and collected, and made a Talon guide for Beginners who wants to try out Talon or main him. So here is a complete Talon guide I have put together to the best of my abilities.
Pros and Cons
Pros:
- Strong Early
- Easy To Play
- Fun To Play
- One-shots Are Satisfying

Cons:
- Falls Late Game
Talon's Abilities
Talon's Passive is Blade's End: After hitting 3 abilities on an enemy champion or an epic monster, Talon's next auto attack will do bleed damage over time.

Talon's Q is Noxian Diplomacy: Talon stabs an enemy and gets an extra auto attack. Hitting Talon's Q in melee range will be a guarantee crit. If used ranged, Talon will leap onto the enemy. Killing an enemy with Q refunds some HP and CD.

Talon's W is Rake: Talon throws 3 AoE blades forward which returns. The returning blades slows the enemy and does more damage.

Talon's E is Assassin's Path: Talon can leap over any terrain or structure but puts a long cooldown on the structure that was jumped over by Talon.

Talon's R is Shadow Assault: Talon lets out a ring of blades and becomes invisible while gaining movement speed. If Talon uses an ability he will reappear. If Talon hits an enemy with Q or an Auto, the blades will target the enemy. Talon can be spotted by True Vision.
Talon Combos
Here is a list of Talon combos you can do.

- Ranged Q and immediately throw out your W, and AA

- Auto, Melee Q, Auto

- Hit two W's, and follow up with Ranged Q + Auto to proc passive

- W, and follow up with Ranged Q to pull your second W back and then Auto to proc passive

- W, and Flash to pull your second W back, then Melee Q to proc passive.

Pretty easy right? Now for the more advanced combos.

- Talon's Flower Combo : W + Q + R + Auto (which is a one shot combo)

- E + R + Melee or Ranged Q + W

- Ranged Q + W + R + Auto

- Flash R + Q + W + AA

- Flash Q + R + W + AA

When in teamfights, try hitting all or most of the enemies with your Ult. And always use Ignite to secure kills if your are unsure that your combo with kill the enemy.
Runes
Talon only has 3 actual good Rune Pages.

The Conqueror and Domination rune page is probably the best runes to go for on Talon. It is great for both the Bruiser and Assassin Build. The extra sustain and damage Conqueror gives, just synergies so well with Talon.

Go for the Electrocute and Precision rune page when the enemy team are on the squishier side or when they have high priority champions. You'll want to build mainly Lethality items with this rune page.

I only go for the Conqueror and Inspiration rune page when I play Talon in the Jungle. But it should still be decent if you play it in lane.
Builds
Starting Items:
For starting items, if you go for the Assassin build, buy a Long Sword and a Refillable Potion or 3 Health Potion. (it's up to you) If you are going for the Bruiser build, start with a Doran's Blade and a Health Potion.

First Back:
On your first back, if you are going for the Assassin build, buy a Serrated Dirk, Boots(if you can), and some Control Ward. If you can't buy a Serrated Dirk, then just buy some more Long Sword. Try to spend your gold. For the Bruiser build, it's the same. If you can buy an Ironspike Whip, then do so. If you can't, then get a Pickaxe. If you can't get that either, then get some Long Sword.

Full Builds:
For full builds, if you take Conqueror, either go with the Bruiser or Assassin build. (depending the matchups or your preference. it's good for both build paths)

If you bring Electrocute you can also go for either Bruiser or Assassin build, but preferably Assassin.


If you are Jungling, regardless if you are running Conqueror or Electrocute. Your core items will always be Goredrinker, Mobility Boots, and Youmuu's Ghostblade. The rest are situational.
Summoner Spells
Standard Summoner Spells:
Flash and Ignite will always be the summoner spells you take. You won't need Teleport since your roaming ability is enough.

Jungle Summoner Spells:
If you are Jungling you'll take Smite over either Flash or Ignite. (the choice is up to you)
Gameplay
Early Game/Laning Phase: Buy a Long Sword and a Refillable Potion if you are going for the Assassin Build. Start Doran's Blade and a Health Potion if you are going for the Bruiser Build. For me, I always start off with W level 1. (NEVER SPAM YOUR W ONLY FOR POKING) You'll want to use your W to zone for CS, last hit, and trade when you hit 2. If you spam Rake, you'll always be out of Mana. You'll usually want to back at level 4-5.

Ranged/Melee Matchups:
For ranged matchups, the enemy will likely shove the lane to your side and punish you for trying to get creeps. Just try your best to farm as much as possible without getting poked too hard. Look for a chance to last hit minions. If there's an opening or if you are able to hit two Ws on the enemy champion, you can look to Q and trade. This also allows you to test if you can beat the enemy laner. Your leveling will be at least two points in Q and max W.

For melee matchups, you can start Q if know you can win trade with AA + Melee Q + AA. (you'll probably win 90% of the time) Your leveling will be two points in W and max Q.

Mid Game:
For mid game, which is marked when either Bottom turret falls. You will want to swap to Bot Lane(though there are times where you'll swap to top rather than bot but the general rule is you will always go bot). You want to prioritize shoving waves then rotating towards your team out of enemy vision. In teamfights, you'll want to always do the same thing. Your job is to kill important targets so try to not hit Drake/Baron and stay in bush to zone or flank. If you are behind and your team is fed. What you will want to do is to go in and waste the enemies cds but try not to int. If your backline is stronger than their backline, you can play front to back and peel for your team instead of diving. If the enemy backline is ahead sac your backline for theirs.

Late Game:
If you've made it to late game which is the 27-30 minute mark, Talon will fall pretty hard. But you'll want to pretty much want to do the same thing as said in Mid Game.
Roaming
The #1 rule of roaming for every Talon player is to never flip roam. Flip roaming is when you take a roam that relies on the enemy team not warding or not looking at the map for the roam to succeed. Otherwise, you drop waves and the lane quickly becomes unplayable. The issue with this is that your games will be won/lost off of how the enemy team responds, rather than how you're playing.

Rather, you want to set up roams with a little bit of thinking. First, think about the lane you want to roam towards a wave or two ahead. This allows you to set up control wards / sweep in the direction you're going to roam before you commit. Look to see if any lanes are gankable soon (or already is). Always try to get the wave shoved before roaming. If you can't, a trick is to force a recall and roam from base. The enemy mid won't ping and you'll easily avoid all non-deep ward spots.
Conclusion
This is the end of my Talon Guide. I tried explaining this to the best of my abilities and trying to be as simple as possible. Comment if you notice a mistake or out of date part that I missed and I'll update it. So thank you for your time and have fun playing Talon! ily

HAVE FUN ON THE RIFT SUMMONERS!
