An extremely short guide on my version of Talon!
Don't bother reading, I won't write much.

The three main points of this build is..

Back to Top


Due to having a limited amount of IP after purchasing Talon, I use my Vayne runes.
So, feel free to adjust as you wish! This is only what I use.

I recommend switching the Glyphs to:

AD per level for better burst damage
armor/magic resist for better survival
Back to Top


As mentioned earlier, this is just what I use.
Feel free to tamper around, especially maybe diving into Defense instead of Utility for a little extra survivability.

Not much to say about the items. Basically, just follow the item order and you'll do fairly well.

Of course, get some health pots (if heavily pressured) or a ward each time you go back to base (especially if there's a jungler!) during the early game.

If you manage to buy the Mercury Treads before a tower is down, you're already doing better than me!

In my item sequence, there will be one last slot since Brutalizer and Avarice Blade will merge to Youmoo's Ghostblade while Sheen becomes Trinity Force.
The last item, will probably depend on your choice and situation.

Some recommendations are:
    Frozen Mallet (HP + permanently activates passive)
    Banshee's Veil (You dodge a spell! Who doesn't want that?!)
    Quicksilver Sash (for CC heavy opponents).

However, for this build.. Remember one thing. FARM FARM FARM!

Skill Sequence

Why Q at lv2?
You probably don't have a gank ready, so you don't need a skill to close the distance between you and your enemy that early. What more, Q helps you to farm! If you can go near the creep, that is.

Why W at lv3?
For the main point of the build: TO FARM.
Back to Top

Summoner Spells

Honestly, follow the spells.

Exhaust is your bread and butter, especially for 1v1s at early level when you're not as well-farmed.

The only other skill I would consider acceptable is to switch Flash with Ghost.

I haven't tried Talon from multiple angles, so there's definitely room to improve from this build.

Go ahead and test them out!
And please, leave a comment if you do find a better alternative to mine.
Much appreciated! :)
