Summoner Spells Back to Top

Must have:

4.png Flash is the always the best choice for most of the champions, Talon as well.

14.png Ignite allows you to put a lot more pressure on the enemy laner due to your strong lv 2 power-spike. Pretty good for early game

Situational:

6.png Ghost is great, gives you a lot of mobility and has a good synergy with your taloncutthroat.png (the E animation depends from your movement speed). It also allows you to chase your target after you use your Q ranged.

3.png Exhaust can be an option against certain matchups or to chase your target.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity

Fury vs Sorcery

Sorcery, no matter what.

Fresh Blood vs Feast vs Expose Weakness

Expose is gargabe on Talon. I personally prefer Fresh Blood but you can take Feast as well for sustain in lane vs heavy poke.

Vampirism vs Natural Talent

Going 1 / 4 is the best option. You trade a small amount of AD late game for a little bit of sustain in early. Worth it.

Bounty Hunter vs Double Edged Sword vs Battle Trance

In this tank meta it will be hard for you to get all the stacks for Bounty Hunter, moreover as Talon you want to kill the enemy carries (so 2 or 3 champs depending on the teamcomp). Battle Trance is good for early game kills where you don't have one shot potential but becomes useless mid/late game. Double Edged Sword is good at any point of the game and with the sustains masteries we talked above is definitely the best option.

Cunning

Wanderer vs Savagery

Wanderer is always the best choice. Since the rework Talon became a more roaming-oriented champion, so that's a must.

Runic Affinity vs Secret Stash Vs Assassin

You don't really have mana problems, moreover Talon's early game is so strong now: Assassin is just the best option.

Merciless vs Meditation

You don't really have mana problems with Talon, go Merciless.

Greenfather's Gift vs Bandit vs Dangerous Game

You can choose between Greenfather's and Dangerous Game. Personal preference.

Precision vs Intelligence

Assassin = Lethality. Easy.

Stormraider's vs Thunderlord's vs Windspeaker's

Stormraider's is so much better: you don't really need the Thunderlord's pressure for an early kill and it helps you get out of a fight combined with your E - Assassin's Path talone.png

Introduction

In the above table i inserted the standard order for Talon's abilities. Usually you tend to start W - Rake talonw.png into Q - Noxian Diplomacy talonq.png into E - Assassin's Path talone.png. Then follow the W > Q > R > E max order. W is the most important ability during laning phase because it's the only ranged ability you have: it allows better wave clear and, moreover, it can proc 2 stacks of your passive.

179.png

Start

You will start W talonw.png 90% of the time. It allows you to help your jungler when he starts with raptors and the lv 1 poke is good enough to go all-in once you get lv 2. However there are some Talon's players (especially at higher ranks like Masters or Challenger) who start with Q talonq.png in order to last hit more easily against certain matchups. Starting E is useless (unless you're escaping from an invade).

179.png

Power Spikes from Abilities

Talon has 2 power spikes from the abilities. Lv 2 power spike (when you put a point on your Q talonq.png ) is the one that allows Talon to be responsible for 25% of first bloods, you just need to get lv 2 before your enemy and you will be able to secure a kill. Another power spike is at lv 6 (when you unlock R - Shadow Assault talonr.png ), that's when things start to becoming interesting and you can 100-0 the opponent.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard Start
    Alternative to the 3 pots. Go with this into matchups you know you will have to buy a lot of pots during the game.
    Best start against heavy poke lanes where you know cs'ing will be hard and you'll have to use a lot of mana.

Core Items

    This is your best friend
    Rush Duskblade asap, then Ghostblade
    CDR + Armor Shred. This is the best option as 3rd item
    I wouldn't call them "core" but these items are pretty good on Talon. You can build Edge of Night against squishy team (with lethality runes you'll deal true damage to the enemy adc). If they build armor or have champs who can heal a lot you definitely need Lord Dominik's Regards or Mortal Reminder.

Situational Items

    VS heavy AP teams or when enemy mid laner can burst you too easily
    This item can save your life against champs like Lissandra/Malzahar
    Good 6th item. Buy it when you know you cannot afford to die.
    Best option when you're really ahead cause you can roam and carry the other lanes. Late game you will change into Tabis or Mercury 90% of the games.
    Pretty good against full AD teams or when the enemy (AD) mid laner is fed/ahead
    Pretty good against heavy AP teams, with many CCs or when the enemy (AP) mid laner is fed/ahead
    This can be option if you need more survivability late game. It also synergizes well with your passive.

Introduction

Talon has a pretty standard build. As an assassin he mainly needs Lethality items and armor shred/penetration.

179.png

Start

There are only 2 viable options in my opinion Corrupting Potion 2033.png or Long Sword 1036.png + 3 Pots 2003.png/Refillable 2031.png. I prefer to start corrupting when against a heavy poke lane cause enemy laner will try to punish me for every cs, so that i won't run out of mana too easily. The other start is for all the other scenarios.
