You are the solo mid.
You are the assassin.
You are the AP Counter.
You are a physical damage caster.
YOU ARE NOT A DPS CHAMPION.
I know that your passive is dependent on CC effects, but don't get them yourselves. Use your ally's for that added passive. Don't run in like a Yi and start smacking on them either, YOUR A PHYSICAL DAMAGE CASTER, NOT A AD DPS hero.
Once you get the first bloodthirster, start stacking it up and farm up another one. Each bloodthirster gives you a 60+ atk damage boost scaling up every one of you skills so high that 1 w might clear out 1-4 bars of an enemy champion. So just stack up those Bloodthirsters enough until you think you should start getting other items. I usually get Trinity for the added bonus for my passive and Q skills. And if your just trolling keep getting bloodthirsters ;D.
A BIG HINT IS TO LOOK FOR THE LANES THAT HAVE A LARGE AMOUNT OF CREEPS, GO IN THEM W AND THEN GET OUT AND FIND MOAR AND MOAR LANES!!!
Talon is usually not a person that is able to kill in a 2v1 situation, mainly because 2 of your skills only work on 1 person and if that 1 person kites you, you'd die by the hands of the other person. So play smart and grab your team together and wreck face.
Oh, don't initiate. Remember your an assassin, and assassins are squishy.
The common bread and butter combo, is to press q blink it and attack (Don't forget to attack, they have yet to add the "Talon will try to attack the enemy after he uses his blinkstrike"), then use your W and hit some more. If they don't run, you have two options. Proc your Ultimate and then hit destroy them if you can, or wait out your cooldowns and repeat! This usually works for me.
