[S12] Talon Jungle, The Tanky Assassin

Jungling Tips
Start at Red/Blue if you get leash, otherwise start at raptors and kite. Best chances to have as much hp as possible after clearing. Solo Red/Blue is tough and bad for you because youre an easy prey if they countergank.

Combo on camps. AA -> W -> AA -> AA -> Q -> AA -> Kite -> Repeat
Heres the explaination: You have low attackspeed in early so you want to cancel as many animations as possible to deal the maximum of damage in short time. You start with an autoattack, cancel the exit animation by casting W, doing auto attacks until the blades come back, then you do your next auto attack and immediatly cast Q to cancel again. When Talon casts Q on melee range, he will attack immediatly after Q again, so his passive can trigger. Thats how you can do like 3 auto attacks within a second. While they bleed you kite them closer to your next camp and to avoid getting damaged while you heal from your jungler item.

Dont use your terrain for jumps unless you want to reach a lane faster for a gank or e.g. you want to help toplane but youre doing kruggs botlane. Enemy jungler could countergank you so you want to use your E to escape or follow him if you think you can kill him.
Talon Fight Tips
Dont be afraid of kiting while fighting. Enemies try to dodge your W ability so be sure you walk, flash or whatever so it definetly hits them because the most dangerous ability Talon has is the passive. It has huge AD scaling, no cooldown and deals up to around 1,3k dmg in late (Fullbuild, your lethality and enemies armor excluded from calculation). It could be more but that depends on Fire Drakes, Yuumi piloting, ally AD boosts in general.

I love Prowlers Claw. Its the best item for Talon (imo) because your potential is big with it and enemies cant escape, unless they hard cc you ofc. If youre going to assassinate a target, make sure you jump with Prowlers Claw instead of q on your target because you want to save Q as an additional jump with a stack for your passive, in case they instantly flash away.

While jumping in Assassins Path, you cant use your W and Q BUT you can use your R. Thats only a case you should use if you want to escape and dodge a target ability like Caits ult or if the terrain is small and hits enemies nearby, like turrets, inhibitors and champion created terrain like Ornns Pillar, Trundles Ice or more. You cant change your direction of your landing position so they probably try to shoot abilities there and maybe they hit but thats a thing of luck. Your jumping time depends on your movementspeed so if youre at base with homeguard active, try to jump over the nexus and then another time without homeguard, youll see the different. So if you use your ult in Assassins Path, you will also jump and land faster. Combined with all the movementspeed buffs you can start a very fast engage.
Sorry if its hard to read and youre used to a fancy looking chapter but i forgot how to do it so... yeah sry

Have fun Taloning
