Hi, my name is Run1c in game, This is my first guide I made. I'm making Talon guide because I think he's one of most underrated champion now. Because Season 3 is coming with few improvements e.g. calculating arpen in % before flat arpen now assassins like [imgsmall=champ/talon.png] or [imgsmall=champ/pantheon.png] much better in the meta. He got a new item [imgsmall=items/the-black-cleaver.png] which gives a nice arpen and passive letting him to deal almost true damage... Darius it's time for Talon to shine. Talon have nice burst damage dealing physical damage, he deal damage instantly and can kill enemy without scratch if done right. He counter mostly all AP mids with his kit making him a perfect ranked queue pick. I believe this season Talon will be more popular and stronger than before. This guide is for players with average skills and getting fed enough to follow this build. I will send gameplay soon. Run1c

It's simple, Talon doesn't needs any crits, as or hp. He is mainly AD caster assassin dealing as much damage as possible with abilities. Note Talon have about 5 bonus AD ratio which is quite high. I found building AD is now cheaper so I started building full AD on Talon since others items stats are useless. [imgsmall=items/the-bloodthirster.png] solve all Talon burst with nice survability. With 3 fully stacked BTs you should have 300 AD and 54 LS ! That's a lot of damage.

Talon biggest weapon is SUPRISE moment. [img=skills/talon/e.png] > [img=skills/talon/w.png] > AA > [img=skills/talon/q.png] > [img=skills/talon/r.png] Now you procs passive 2 times which should give you enough damage to finish squishy AP mids. Just another great quick combo but with no passive procs [img=skills/talon/e.png] > AA > [img=skills/talon/q.png] > [img=skills/talon/w.png] > [img=skills/talon/r.png] Don't forget [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] them to finish them off. Tips: Talon's [imgsmall=skills/talon/e.png] increase damage from all Talon's damage sources even [imgsmall=summoners/ignite.png] damage.

Talon have awesome AD ratios that's why I'm running full AD because arpen he get later from items enough. I run AD red, armor seal for resist, mr/lvl best glyphs for Talon, AD quints ofc. You can run full AD/Lvl runes if you have easy lane, at level 18 it gives 52 AD total. Still it's a waste of IP for such a champion Talon.

[img=skills/talon/r.png] > [img=skills/talon/w.png] > [img=skills/talon/q.png] > [img=skills/talon/e.png] Don't level [imgsmall=skills/talon/q.png] first because you will lack [imgsmall=skills/talon/w.png] damage and farming ability.

Best part of this guide is prob Item Build. [img=items/boots-of-speed.png][img=items/health-potion3.png] starting items [img=items/the-brutalizer.png] Talon needs damage and arpen, brut is no doubt. [img=items/the-black-cleaver.png] Upgrade from brut to this for additional arpen. The hp is good but not neccesary for AD Talon. [img=items/the-bloodthirster.png] Talon's favorite item. 100 AD at full stacks is too good. I build 3 BT because I think Talon needs BURST from abilities with about 5.0 bonus AD ratio with level 5 [imgsmall=skills/talon/e.png] is just excellent. [img=items/last-whisper.png] Nice mid late game item. OTHER/DEFENSIVE ITEMS [img=items/blade-of-the-ruined-king.png] could be good on Talon. But still BT over damage this. [img=items/frozen-mallet.png] good HP and AD buff. Procs passive! [img=items/guardian-angel.png] Take this as last item. If so get 2 BTS first then LW then this. [img=items/hexdrinker.png] for hard lane or AP enemies. [img=items/lord-van-damms-pillager.png] good one but still the HP isn't neccesary on Talon as said. [img=items/mercurial-scimitar.png] Best counter item for strong CC enemies. 50% ms boost for melee is superior. [img=items/phantom-dancer.png] Talon needs AD not crits. [img=items/ravenous-hydra.png] NO [img=items/runaans-hurricane.png] NO [img=items/trinity-force.png] Good item but not for Talon. [img=items/youmuus-ghostblade.png] Don't upgrade from brut into this. Talon needs AD. [img=items/infinity-edge.png] The AD it gives is nice but the crits are not useful on Talon.
