Masteries Back to Top

12/18/0 is Most ideal masteries.


Ferocity Tree

Sorcery Vs. Fury: When playing talon attack speed is not important most of the time your going to only get an AA and Q off while using youmuu's while vs Sorcery it will allow you to do an extra 2% damage on your abilities which will help your AOE burst out more. 

Double Edged Sword Vs. Feast: DES is strong for melee champs being able to deal out an extra 3% damage will help you out later in the game. Feast on the other hand isn't as helpful since there is a 20 second cool down every time your able to gain an extra 20 HP.

Vampirism Vs. Natural Talent: Both of these are actually really weak for talon. Natural talent will only give you 10 AD by the time you make it to level 18 which is hardly anything during late game. And early game it is nothing at level 3 you'll only have an extra 1.6 AD which is laughable. However Vampirism will at least help you out a little during the laning phase by giving you an extra 2% life steal. 

Bounty Hunter Vs. Oppressor: Bounty Hunter is strong later in the game most of the time talon will be gaining many kills and for early game % AD is useless so having an extra 2.5% while only impaired basically means nothing and by the time % AD becomes useful you will most likely have at least 3 different enemy champs Killed, ADC/APC/Sup most likely. 

Cunning

Wanderer Vs. Savagery: Savagery is basically useless for talon when playing talon mid and as only useful for talon jungle. While Wanderer on the other hand will help talon out on being able to catch the enemy champion by giving you an extra 3% move speed while your already one of the fastest mid laners.

Runic Affinity Vs. Secret Stash Vs. Assassin : Updating!!!

Merciless Vs. Meditation: Merciless will help you out on dealing extra damage to enemy champions later in the game with that extra 5% when enemy champ is bellow 40% health. For Meditation you aren't gaining enough Mana for it to become useful. I've tried it in many of my matches and i hardly notice a different in being able to spam W more during laning phase. 

Bandit Vs. Dangerous Game: Bandit is not meant for Melee mid laners the amount of gold you will obtain isn't useful in buying any items. For Dangerous game i have lived several times just because of this mastery alone when doing 1v1's you'll usually end up living with hardly any health left even more so during early game. 

Precision Vs. Intelligence: intelligence is better after the rework, the armor pen now is a lot weaker earlier its better to get that extra 5 cdr.

Stormraider's Vs. Thunderlord Vs. Windspeaker: having an extra 30% move speed is nice however when buring an enemy champ you already have an extra 110% move speed when trying to get out because of your items and ult so it isn't really needed to get even more movespeed. Thunderlord is strong on talon in that you'l be doing more damage to enemy champs that is why i recommend you going with this. Windspeakers is completely useless you don't have heals and shields.

VS

Ahri

Easy

very easy match up dodge here charm and your good, lvl 4 you should be able to one shot her as well as lvl 6

VS

Akali

Medium

akali is a little hard, poke her down a little on lvl 6 and then you'll be able to one shot her with your full combo. 

VS

Anivia

Medium

anivia is easy to get her down to her passive just be careful of getting ganked when her passive is up.

VS

Annie

Easy

Very easy, just make sure you don't all in her when she has her stun up.

VS

Azir

Medium

azir poke is annoying, however you do have the damage to being able to one shot him lvl 6.

VS

Brand

Easy

Brand is an easy match up when you see him use his abilities lvl 4 go in on him, you'll be able to one shot him or come very close and force him out of lane, lvl 6 you can just go all in and he will die. 

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

the only thing annoying about her is her poke, just dodge it and you'll be fine. lvl 6 you'll also be able to oneshot her. 

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Cho is a hard match up if he goes for RoA, or seekers.  When i normally face Cho i will tend to roam to either bot or top more often to try and get ahead by ganking. 

VS

Diana

Hard

Diana is an annoying person to match up because of her shield, also when she throwers her q most diana players will throw it at or behind you so just take one step forward and you'll be able to dodge it. if you have problems against this champ roam bot or top. Talon is great at roaming and you can get some easy kills. 

VS

Fiora

Medium

fiora is annoying early lvls just  play safe early lvl when you hit lvl 6 you'll be able to one shot her however. and your ult counters her since her ult does not do damage when your invisible just make sure she doesn't have a pink ward before going in. 

VS

Fizz

Medium

you can kill fizz at lvl 4 if done correctly, during lvl 1 if he levels his w, poke him down a lot during levels 1 and 2. every time he goes into aa a CS w and aa him then back off and keep doing that every time he goes for a CS. At lvl 3 he has an advantage of you however if you poked him enough for level 4 you can one shot him, make sure he doesn't trickster your w when you go in on him. A way to dodge fizz's trickster and/or ult is to e to a minion.  If fizz doesn't gets seekers level 6 you can oneshot him just make sure you dont miss your w. 

VS

Galio

Easy

easy match up you'll easily be able to oneshot him. 

VS

Gragas

Medium

gragas is a little annoying you'll be able to poke him down lvl 1 though, during lvl 2 he will have an advantage. you may want to get q instead of e lvl 2 against him. lvl 6 you'll be able to oneshot him however be careful of his ult he can ult you into his tower when you go on him. 

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Heimer is super easy matchup. early on he will farm more than you but it really doesn't matter since once you turn 6 no matter how low your cs is you'll one shot this guy. also later on i believe when your lvl 7-9 your w will oneshot his turrets.  

VS

Jayce

Medium

Ok jayce is another champ that will out cs you. However it is fine if you have less cs than him. during lvl 6 just poke him down 1 time with your w wait for it to come back and one shot him.

VS

Karma

Medium

armor is little annoying just poke her down with your w until she is at 3/4ths health then you'll be able to one shot. 

VS

Karthus

Easy

karthus super easy, lvl 4 you may be able to oneshot him if you hit him a few time with w. also if you get lvl 2 before him go in on him. 

VS

Kassadin

Easy

VS

Katarina

Hard

Katarina is annoying now since you no longer have a silense to stop her ult. I usually roam bot when facing her to get out a few kills so i'll be able to oneshot kat. 

VS

Kayle

Medium

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Leblanc is more annoying now after you lost you silence, from her being able to jump all around you. When you are lvl 6 you'll be able to oneshot everyone. 

VS

Lissandra

Medium

when facing Lissandra you may want to get a qss after getting the LW. 

VS

Lulu

Medium

lulu is somewhat of an annoying champ to you must take her down lvl 4, or 5. by level 6 she be nearly unkillable if she gets seekers, you'll need a gank if she has it. Otherwise you can roam bot or top to get kills and then come back to mid once fed. 

VS

Lux

Easy
Lux is a very easy match up. when your lvl 4 wait for her to use her abilities then go all in on her. During lvl 6 you'll be able to oneshot her. 

VS

Malzahar

Easy

Malz is an easy match up during lane however he comes harder later on because of his ult, just get qss and there is no way he can stop you. I normal get the qss after getting LW. 

VS

Orianna

Easy

Orianna is an easy match up, when you see her throw her ball at you jump her with your e and deal damage it takes awhile for her to shield herself and when she does just walk away do that one more time and she dies. 

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Pantheon is very annoying just get hte wave to push on you. Normal i would just roam when facing a pantheon gank other lanes to get ahead. During lvl 6 you may be able to one shot him after you poke him down a little with your rake. 

VS

Riven

Medium

When facing a riven let her push in on you. during lvl 6 you'll be able to one shot her just wait for her to use her abilities to cs. Also poke her down with your w she doesn't have any ranged abilities and when your under tower she cant attack you. 

VS

Syndra

Medium

Syndra is an easier matchup now that she has been nerfed.  When facing her during level's 1-3 just go for the CS and try and poke her if possible don't get to close to the CS it is fine if you lose some of it just get the XP. When you hit level 4 wait for her to use her Q after she uses it go in on her if she knocks you away just walk away wait for  e do it again and kill her.  When you hit level 6 you have the damage to one  shot her just W her once and then go in on her once she uses her q and  when your W is back up, when your on her do your full combo E, AA, Q, W, R, ignite. if you don't have ignite you may have to w her two or three times before going on her depending if she has seekers and two Doran rings. 

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

TF is easy match up just go in on him after he uses his card. do this lvl 4 and lvl 6 you'll be able to one shot him. 

VS

Vel'Koz

Easy

Vel, is a super easy champ to face you'll be able to one shot him lvl 4. also go in on him lvl 2 if you get it before him.

VS

Xerath

Medium

xerath is a little annoying from his poke, if you dodge it hes an easy match up. He doesn't have health and easy to kill if you get in close on him. 

VS

Yasuo

Medium

alright when facing yasuo lvl 1 you have advantage poke him down as much as possible during then. also during lvl 2 you may want to get q. lvl 6 you'll be able to oneshot him. 

VS

Zed

Medium

Zed is a skill match up. make sure you go in on him before he goes in on with ult. during lvl 1 you have advantage so poke him down. when your lvl 6 just go on him force him to ult you and run away, go back to base heal up again. When your ult comes back off of cool down jump on him again wait a little while before ulting until the ult will oneshot him he won't realize you have ult and you'll be able to kill him. Your ult comes up roughly 45 seconds before his depending on CDR.
