Thunderlords always for the extra burst. Stormraiders is an option but I prefer more damage.

Rotation starts off with hitting both instances of your talonrake.png then getting in melee range to land a critical with talonnoxiandiplomacy.png and then auto to proc talonpassive.png. Most targets will die at level 2 if this is done correctly with 14.png.


At 6 lead in with taloncutthroat.png to take them by surprise then quickly talonshadowassault.png and walk in range to crit with talonnoxiandiplomacy.png and then talonrake.png and auto to proc talonpassive.png.








Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start in all situations. Flat AD to help you farm better early game as well as harass and 3 potions to sustain until you have enough for Serrated Dirk . And the ward to obviously save you from ganks :D

Core Items

    I like to get Trinity Force when I'm completely stomping and they don't have anyone too tanky so my team doesn't need a Black Cleaver. If you want to make the enemies ADC's life hell
    Get the items in this exact order. You will get 40% cdr with this set up with your runes. Lethality is a must and scales hard late game and Duskblades true damage if done right can give you two hits of true damage.

Situational Items

    I find late game I get CC'd alot and can't perform a full combo sometimes, consider getting Scimitar when the enemy has heavy CC.
    Mobos for heavy roaming treads if they have alot of CC and 2ap.
    It's not the worst item to get on Talon but you really wont be in the fight long enough to benefit off the heal but the damage and cdr can really help.
    This build offers more survivabilty and you still max our your CDR

Start off 1036_32.png and 3 2003_32.png

Duskblade or Ghostblade first item I switch it up depending on the matchup.
Duskblade usually by default but with the recent nerfs it might be better to get Ghostblade
for the roaming purposes.

Black Cleaver to shred high armored targets and help with you live longer.

You don't need to go Dominiks or Mortal Reminder every game however
with the stopwatch meta most ADCs opt for an early Guardian Angel
so going those items might be beneficial based on your opponents
itemization.

VS

Ahri

Easy

Really easy to counter her ultimate can't hit you

while you are invisible so her burst damage
gets cut in half unless she gets a pink.

VS

Akali

Medium

A good 84_64.png will just farm till 6 and is really hard to trade with however with a 3155_32.png should be rather easy to trade with her.

VS

Anivia

Medium

Anivia can be really easy to burst but

her egg makes it so you can't kill her.
When I find myself fighting an Anivia I
usually roam more. It is possible to kill her
but the enemy jungler always seems to not let
me. Dodge flashfrost.png and you might have a chance.

VS

Annie

Medium

I find Annie in lane to be super annoying since they buffed her q to give her lower cd's when she kills a target and also the full mana refund is super op. Try roaming.

VS

Azir

Medium

Azir's poke is really annoying but they usually rush Nashor's so their defenses are really low making them easy to burst at 6.

VS

Brand

Easy

Very easy match up when he goes to combo you can just Cutthroat behind him to dodge his stun. Then bipbopbam dead.

VS

Cassiopeia

Medium

You can dodge her cassiopeiapetrifyinggaze.png  with your E if timed right but her poke is too much.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Its not too often you see a Cho'Gath mid but

if you do you will most likely lose his skillset
is built around countering casters.
Try to bait the silence is the best advice and not
get hit it lasts like 3 seconds and you won't be able to do
your combo.

VS

Diana

Hard

Diana can be really difficult to deal with.

She has a shield that blocks your Rake harass,
a double gap closer, and a knockback/pull which can
hit you even when you ult.
Try to bait Moonfall and you might be able to kill her.

VS

Fizz

Medium

I hate this match up personally because your silence is gone now giving the 105_64.png time to hop on his staff to dodge your ult/rake. Bait the Trickster and you should win. If you're having a hard time dodging sharks 3140_32.png drops sharks immediately which is half his burst. 

VS

Gragas

Medium

Too tanky just farm and roam.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Very weak early game just rake harass while killing minions don't take too much counter harass and then all in at 6.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

Your silence out ranged his silence...play it right with your combo and make sure to bait his ultimate before going in because he can easily Riftwalk out of the 2nd half of your ult.

VS

Katarina

Easy

She'll most likely Shunpo away from you when you Cutthroat to her try to bait it out and if she ults abuse your movement speed from your ult to run away.

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

She will out burst you rush 3155_32.png to survive at level6. You can farm way harder than she can try to harass as much as possible. \

VS

Lissandra

Hard

She can ult herself during your combo now that your silence is gone. Better off roaming versus her IMO. 

VS

Malzahar

Easy

Combo him before he gets a chance to ult you make sure you poke him down enough with Rake before going all out if you get ulted and his jungle is around you're fucked. You can break alzaharnethergrasp.png with 3140_32.png.

VS

Orianna

Easy

Can be difficult sometimes but if you play it right and bait the ult should be no problem. Remember if you're low and think she's going to ult you can always jump to an enemy minion with your Cutthroat or to 61_64.png herself and combo her then use the stealth and movement speed from your ult to retreat to safety. 

VS

Syndra

Medium

Her poke is really annoying early game and she will most likely rush 3157_32.png So Jump on her and combo her before she can ult you. Be wary of how many balls she has out. If she's giving you trouble a3155_32.png can be quite useful in surviving her burst.

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

Twisted Fate's main purpose is to push his lane with his q and then use his ult to roam and gank for people. You basically do the same thing with your Rake and 3270_32.png the only difference is that you can kill 4_64.png outright in lane with just one combo. If he's rushing 3157_32.png that's a good thing it means he won't have 3100_32.png for ganks so he'll be really slow if he does gank. 

VS

Veigar

Easy

You can 1shot him easily with your combo. Also you can Cutthroat to him or a minion to get out of stun circle.

VS

Viktor

Medium

Viktor is hard to face sometimes because

of his stun. If he is smart he'll drop it 

right before you jump on him and he'll stun

you. Just try to farm till mid-game when
your ult is level 2 you can take him no
problem.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

Just gotta wait to do your combo try to make him

waste his pool early with Rake harass and make it

seem like you're going to jump on him.

VS

Xerath

Easy

Who even is this champion? Deleted!

VS

Yasuo

Medium

Yasuo can be challenging if he knows when to Windwall. If you jump on him and he WIndwalls you'll lose most of your damage and he'll us his dash to chase you down. If you bait the Windwall you win the fight.

VS

Zed

Medium

Zed is naturally tankier and has more AD but bait his Shadow and if he doesn't have a pink ward and he zedR.png just talonshadowassault.png and doge his  zedQ.png and reposition for a counter engage.

VS

Ziggs

Medium
115_64.png is very strong early game because of his low cooldown on his q and his autoattack passive. Also with a 3100_32.png he'll do tons of damage. If you aren't careful of when you jump on him he can just satchel away and leave you in his minefield for free harass. Bait him out a little.

Tactics Back to Top

Talon is pretty cut and dry when it comes to tactics.

Mainly poke with your Rake while last hitting with it.
When you get them half jump on them and do your
combo and boom dead its that simple.
Although, if you know you can't one burst
someone use your ultimate to run in front of
your target and wait for your Noxian Diplomacy to
come off cooldown for the takedown.
Look for opportunities to leave your lane to gank
for others, sometimes its better to secure kills for
your team rather than cs. Focus the ADC every fight
there is no doubt you can one burst them unless they
have GA  but even then you can bring them down to a sliver of health 
and force them to back out of the fight.
Don't forget to use your Cutthroat to jump to people or
minions to help escape ganks without having to bust Flash.
I prefer to use Flash as an offensive tool/gap closer rather
than using it to run away.
