ok, i do not own talon and i played him 1,2 times when free, so i cannot know how to really play him. But can u explain me why build ravenous?? he is an ad caster as panth no? ok talon can give some aa but isnt his power there, so building ravenous isnt refusing to get more damage and lifesteal from BT? same for yomuu and infinity, u dont build any other crit item on him and for crit u need aa with talon and u dont really go for aa with him,so u wont crit so much , or totally dont crit, and if yomuu is for arp, arent last whisper and black cleaver enough?

As i said i neither own nor played so much talon, so im just asking, not saying what is right or wrong, so can u answer about this question? :3

Usually you don't finnish the Ravenous until lategame. The possibility of one-shotting someone increases by using the Tiamat active, and it gives some nice AD aswell. Go check out The new talon by Vapora Dark.

tiamats active scales with your AD, IE gives a ton of AD, youmuus gives good armp plus the active on it,

also talons Q can crit, a single Q crit can reach 1k+ damage on one attack, one of your skills on talon that isnt an ult can hit for 1k damage, thats a lot and also why you get youmuus and IE, after that you still have the tiamet active, W, and your ult

of course Q hits 1kish damage because E gives you a % amplifier on your damage, not sure how the amplifier works with crits but its good

im also not 100% sure if Q also works with his passive to give him a huge spike in damage but it probably influences it somehow

but if youre going to use this build you HAVE to remember to use the actives on youmuus and on tiamet or you wont be doing much

also i would ask Vapora Dark about the talon build since hes much more knowledgeable about talon than me

Tiamat / Hydra is better than BT because the active is an extra spell, but there's no point in upgrading to Hydra so early because the upgrade from Tiamat to Hydra doesn't give you much damage. IE is good because a crit nearly triples your AA damage, which gives you IMMENSE burst, Youmuu's is good because the active gives you movement speed which is good for catching enemies out, 20 armor penetration is really good, and it gives crit chance which furthers the effectiveness of IE.

People call it my build seeing as I was the one that introduced it to MOBAFire, but I only started using it because I saw Insoy using it. Insoy being a Diamond 1 Talon main with over 1k Talon games played in ranked alone, counting both seasons.

Say what you want, but a build that can 1-shot squishy enemies even with your R on cooldown is insane.

I don't want to sound like a douche but your Talon build is kinda mediocre.


I nearly said something similar to Vapora the first time I saw him using it, but then I tried it and realized how much better it is, with the old BT-LW-BC build you could USUALLY one shot ad carries with everything you had if you were fed; with this build their dead before you even use your ult.

To whoever mentioned the CDR boots, I just like them personally more than the mobility boots seeing as with youmuus and another Brutalizer your ultimate will have a cooldown of about 36 seconds, and if you get blue buff you hit the max CDR of 33 seconds.

Real easy game. They had a top lane bruiser Quinn, and as you can see it worked out very well for her. My cs was terribad because someone phoned the house in the middle of the game and I was playing one handed for a solid four minutes, but other than that I did quite well and my teammates did too.

Yeah lol, new Talon is like old Talon on steroids. Was playing ranked earlier, vs Plats obviously, and I kept 1-shotting their ADC and support with just E Q W. Still had R and Tiamat leftover each time.

... Those were reserved for 1-shotting their tanks.

I personally don't like CDR boots, you get max CDR with blue, Youmuu's and Black Cleaver anyway. In fact you're already past the CDR cap if you take Sorcery too ( which I don't anymore, though ).

Heck even if you don't take Black Cleaver like I've been trying out, full build you have blue elixirs anyway, so you're still at the cap with no CDR boots.

But then obviously I'm much more experienced with Talon and could possibly be much faster to react when I see an opportunity to catch an enemy out, so just do whatever works for you. :P

Also I lol'd at AP jungle Shaco in that Renekton game. And that Leona's build... (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

Ugh this game sometimes. Played the new Yi for the first time in ranked, forgot to screenshot out of pure frustration. Shaco kept stealing my buffs for free since he didn't need to gank hardly at all (his bot and top were stomping, mid was even) and I had to camp top and bot as much as possible. Even still, our Renekton would die to their Cho'Gath literally every time I left, and if I wasn't sitting in bottom lane's bush they would both die to the enemy Caitlyn. Couldn't really gank bottom properly because it was perma-warded in six different places it seemed and our bot lane was too terrified to go anywhere near Caitlyn if I did gank. Couldn't even split-push at all, everytime I tried Shaco and Cho'Gath would instantly appear and put a stop to it.

It's simply better for early game (CDR boots I mean) especially in low elo solo queue where you want your Shadow Assault up as much as possible in the early stages so you can insta-gib your lane opponent and then roam to bot or top and have it back up again for another kill. If you really think you need the extra movement speed just get an early Alacrity enchantment, its 475 extra gold but farming's a breeze with Tiamat and Rake anyways so its not a huge deal. Not to mention with the enchantment you will be going about ~415 MS all the time as opposed to ~395 in combat and ~430 outside of it, so it kind of evens out to having the same speed.
