Choose Champion Build:
This guide will have diffirent builds for diffirent occations.
The one up in the top is the one i use the most. Rushing for the Bloodthirster will make your Rake kill the caster minions with no problem.
Phage gives a good health boost and the chance for the slow if you dont land Rake. The slow from Phage procs your passive on Noxian Diplomacy.
Getting Mallet will further increase HP and chance of slowing.
Atma's Impaler makes wonders as soon as you get Frozen Mallet.
Infinity Edge makes your Noxian Diplomacy crit for 1000 if you are lucky. Its a must if game goes on for that long or you get that fed.
The last item in the build is mostly up to you. If you get focused get either Warmog's Armor (the bonus of that is you already have Atma's Impaler) or Banshee's Veil.
Again, rush the Bloodthirster to make your farm skyrocket. Begin gank other lanes as your skills scale extremely good when you have that BT.
Either Mercury's or Cooldown Reduction.
If you manage to get a good start and feel like god, get Blade of The Occult. Your burst will be rediculously insane. I've got a quadra kill at lvl 11 with this build and some good kills early on.
If you dont feel godlike and dont want to get focused, go for Infinity Edge instead.
If you are getting focused by now, get Phage--->Frozen Mallet, if not, get a second Bloodthirster, then Frozen Mallet
If you can read your opponents lane combo to be a harrass heavy, start with Doran's Shield.
Brown Boots next.
If you continue to get outlaned/harrased, get Doran's Blades. 2 or 3 will get you back in the game as the Doran's items are the most cost effecient in the game.
Get Bloodthirster and continue with one or the other build.
Again, go for situational items for diffirent games. Often, following an exact build will put you off versus various teams.
If you face champions like the guys listed above, start out with boots and 3 pots (still get Doran's if its against harrassment heavy tanks.)
Get The Brutalizer ---> into Yomuu's Ghostblade and then get Bloodthirster.
As the game goes on, get Last Whisper and continue one of the usual builds.
If you go for this, switch out Atma's Impaler and Frozen Mallet, as Trinity Force gives a health boost anyways.
Get a Quicksilver Sash or some defensive item with Trinity Force.
Flash is a must have on all champions without a blink skill in my opinion.
Exhaust will get you the early kills and save your *** from time to time.
Ignite... I dont really like it on Talon. He has a bleed. I know, it isnt for much, but when you could have Ignited for the kill, you could have Exhausted for another.
Teleport? Nah. Just no.
Not the hardest champion to play (not Annie style though.)
Works well with a setup team.
An okay escape mechanism.
Easy to juke casters with.
Low damage early game (untill 6.)
Escaping with Ultimate will give away your position.
Pretty easily countered as armor will shut him down. All his spells is physical damage. So please... DO NOT FOCUS THE RAMMUS!
