Talon Counters

Learn Talon's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Talon guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Talon Mid in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Talon. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Talon's abilities wound champions for a short duration, stacking up to three times. When Talon basic attacks a fully wounded target, they bleed for 75-245 (at levels 1-11) (+2.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage over 2 seconds. Talon's abilities will also wound all monsters for 120% damage.

Talon leaps to a target, dealing 65 / 85 / 105 / 125 / 145 (+1.0 bonus attack damage) physical damage on arrival. If cast within melee range, Talon does not leap but instead critically strikes his target for 150%. Whenever Noxian Diplomacy kills a unit, Talon heals for 10-70 (depending on level) and 50% of its cooldown is refunded.

Talon vaults over the nearest structure or terrain in a target direction. The vault's speed is affected by Talon's movement speed. Talon cannot vault over the same section of terrain for 160 / 135 / 110 / 85 / 60 seconds.
R
Talon's Shadow Assault
Shadow Assault Talon's Ultimate (R) Ability
500

100 / 80 / 60 / 60 / 60
Talon disperses a ring of blades outwards and gains stealth for up to 2.5 seconds while gaining 40% movement speed. When Talon emerges from stealth, the blades converge on his location. Each time a blade passes through an enemy, they take 80 / 120 / 160 (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage. Each enemy can only be damaged once at the start of the ability and once at the end.

The blades can be redirected to the target of Talon's first basic attack.
