Hello everyone. This is my 3rd guide for today, presenting you my own ideas and builds for the named champion, whatever your opinion may be you are more than welcome to leave it in the comments.So talon....sigh....this assassins creed ripoff with the faceroll potential of throwing boomerang-knifes at whoever he points his fingers at. He can either be an Oneshot- assassin or a Bruiser, it doesnt matter he is the living nightmare of whatever is squishy. But there are indeed some mental sadists out there who like to jumpscare kids and ADCs for shits and giggles, so for these people i present you a guide on how to talon.

Earlygame is talons weakest, where you really have to watch your back. You have strong mana issues and before the first recall you lack the essential damage to win any trades. Farm safely and by all means try not to be abusive with your W poke. once you have your first item or reach lvl6 you can start to be a bit more aggressive. However again, be wary that you lack the early damage so you will have to be cautions and make sure you can hit all your spells to successfully kill or win a trade.

Midgame is, if you managed to get ahead, your wet dream. assassin or tankbuild here wont matter, you can go in and go out and, almost, safely secure one kill or even 2 if you play it out smart. You can either choose between bursting their ADC into hell or decide to E on someone more tanky and have his HP bar go down a whole lot since you have a fairly good warrior capability and can, to an extend, lead longer fights. You however are no initiator, so wait out until your team goes in and then clean up the mess. If you should dive in first your team will most likely need to follow you and risk a trade unfavored to you. So engage wisely

Lategame you as an assassin will have the usual issues all others do aswell. You fall out and become useless against anyone who is not the adc. In this particular phase you will often be the last from your team to jump into the fight. You have to make sure the enemy has fired their best cc, since you are vurnerable once you shot your skills out so if they have a lot of cc left to use you can be garuanteed that you get your ass handed to you. if you successfully go in and kill someone then your next priority is to GET OUT of the remaining enemies. Until your E is up again your damage will be a joke to their tanks so you as talon only have a short window of time to operate within. A balance between decision making and coordination are needed.

Talon is an assassin, even if you build bruiser, who has potent killing to serve but he can just as good be shut down. His playstyle can in the hands of an unskilled player be a total mess running around playing catch me if you can. His dangers come with long ongoing fights or very mobile enemies who have a good chance to dodge his W from where most of his damage comes from. He is decently easy to play at first but he is a careful choice. He has for the most part the usual issues of all assassins but with him you have to add that his damage really relies on the success of his combo on an target with his E amplify on him. Without it talon can fall out hard and potentially be the reason the lategame would end lost.
