I've been playing Talon for quite a while now, and I usually only take Trinity Force as my third major item. But I've seen Talon guides that tell you to build Trinity Force right after Boots and The Brutalizer. I was wondering about what everyone thinks of this. I think it's ridiculous to get Trinity Force as your first major item as Talon, and ridiculous to get Sheen before a BF sword too. Here's my argument:

Yes, after using an ability, Sheen will deal bonus damage equal to your base Attack Damage. And yes, Talon can get off 3 auto attacks after 3 spells in his burst. But there's something lots of people don't take into account. The Sheen proc has a CD of 2 seconds. If it takes you 6 seconds to unload Talon's burst you're playing him wrong. If you take Sheen you'll be doing maybe 75 more damage on one of your auto attacks. But if you just save up 390 gold you can get a BF sword which will both increase the damage of all of your auto attacks by 45. A standard Talon burst uses at least 2 auto attacks anyway, and that makes the damage from it higher than the damage of Sheen. Not to mention the extra damage on Noxian Diplomacy's initial damage, the damage from its bleed, the extra damage on Rake BOTH ways, and Talon's ultimate Shadow Assault. BF Sword > Sheen, for only 390 more gold, imo.

What do you guys think, and if you still think it's smart to rush Trinity or get Sheen before a BF sword, what's your argument?

I've seen some people rush Trinity Force on other champions before, but I don't play those champions, so I don't really know whether it's good or not.

It's not good.

And on Talon it makes even less sense. Why build a massive expensive item for a proc, when he has crushing scaling on his skills? :P

I guess I'd still like to go the route of Warmogg's Wit's End :P
