Choose Champion Build:
* Great Mobility With Passive
* Decent Scalings
* Great Ganks (With and without ultimate)
* Weak jungle clear (Mid game)
* Weak against global objectives (Drake/Baron)
* Wrong use of your R can really mess up your allies and yourself
Taliyah's clear early game is good.
Continue as you please.
-Dont do raptors without level 3
-You will always struggle with krugs.
In earlyTaliyah's clear is pretty good since landing Seismic Shove is very easy, and is your main damage source. Make sure you walk away from monsters between auto attacks and that you don't use Threaded Volley on worked ground. Also, it sometimes is worth to tank a little damage and have your Unraveled Earth explode while they are standing on top of them.
With UltimateMake sure you use your Weaver's Wall as an entry point, try and make sure your wall blocks all exits. Use your Threaded Volley without minions to block and lay down Unraveled Earth when near enemy champion. Take some time to land your Seismic Shove, don't rush and miss.
Without RMake sure to come from a position where you can land you Threaded Volley. If you feel like you can handle Taliyah, try using Seismic Shove then Unraveled Earth to ensure more burst. Because Unraveled Earth has a rather long cast time, make sure to cast it almost immediately after Seismic Shove.
Because you will be ganking a lot in early levels, your first back is not usually low on gold, so the best items to buy are the components to Skirmisher's Sabre - Runic Echoes ( Skirmisher's Sabre is better to buy first).
- Rod of Ages.
- Zhonya's Hourglass/ Abyssal Mask.
Because Taliyah is mean to me a mid-lane APC she is very squishy. The combination of ROA and Zhonya's or Abyssal helps you with sustain, something required if you wish to win.
First Back: Go for Lost Chapter because of the passive mana.
DO NOT FINISH MORELLO UNTIL YOU HAVE COMPLETED ANOTHER ITEM!!
You can choose either Hextech Rocketbelt or Rod of Ages for a more aggressive and defensive playstyle respectively.
If you build Hextech Rocketbelt immediately after go for Rod of Ages
If you build Rod of Ages, finish Morellonomicon and the build Hextech Rocketbelt.
Build Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Guardian Angel.
Since the mid lane does not allow for Taliyah to abuse her passive as much as in the jungle, boots are of more importance.
