Introduction

Hey everybody, I'm Gnirk (Formerly, Ze Kraken) and welcome to my Talon guide!

What you need to know about me: I love Talon, I've gotten so good that I actually reached pretty good stats, even when compared with Master and Grandmaster Talon Players.

For a while i had a smurf account where I only played Talon and as troll as it sounds, I got to gold II by SUPP/JUNG/TOP/ADC and normal mid-laner Talon. He's simply that good.

I'm not challenger or diamond, but I hardly lose a lane with Talon. Currently I have an 80% win rate with Talon. So you can take this guide pretty serious. Let's get this started then...

Why play Talon?

PRO
+ You can one shot everybody, even some off-tanks, but never full tanks or hyper tanks.
+ Stealth mode and Area of Effect damage is great for team fights
+ Good wave clear
+ Short ult CD
+ Has mild CC
+ You counter most AP carries
+ He's hard to gank
+ High mobility
+ He's underrated, but can carry very hard, nobody will expect you
+ Very strong mid-late game

CON
- Squishy
- Has to go in, very deep into the fights, so keeping a nice KDA isn't easy.
- No heavy CC
- Forces other lanes to pick AP
- Weak early game

How to play Talon Early

Your level 1-2 you can harass hard with your W. In many instances, you will be able to walk away with an early kill at level 2 or 3, depending on how daring your opponent is.

Another thing I like to do is ward the opponents Red Buff and try to get an early kill on the jungler, since at level 2 you are lethal, and the jungler won't have much health to begin with.

Depending on how mobile the other champ is, you can test him first with a W and then Q for the bleed. Usually you can kill the other champ if he's 3/4 of his health.

Make sure to stay near the edges, in case their jungler comes. You can just E away instead of burning your flash.

Moreover, once you reach level 6, be sure to always look for roaming opportunities. Talon has such a high mobility it's seriously unfair.
