Basic tips for Talon
Early game as Talon
Do not try to kill enemy champion in the early game. Just stand on your line and kill minions. Use your Rake to make this task easier. If you use your blades for a farm, then try to take that position, that your skill will hit an enemy aswell.
If you are challenged by a skillfull opponent, then try to kill as many minions as you can, especially big minions with guns. Do not risk your life too much, if you can not reach range minions, then let them be.
Your main challenge – farm enough gold to buy core items, then you can roam and gank enemy champions. You can effectively stay on line if you will use Rake, but remember that this skill consumes a lot of mana, and you have a bad mana regeneration. Try to ask your jungler for blue buff, this will make easier your early game. Or if he can not share his buff with you, then try to ask for help. All you need – kill you opponent 1 or 2 times.
Middle game as Talon
This is ideal stage of the game for Talon. If you have your core artifacts, then your task – roam and gank all enemy champions. You can gank lines very effectively. Talon have ability to rush to enemy, slow him down, and very powerfull ultimate that deal great damage to all enemies in wide radius. Play aggressively and your enemies will die one after another.
Try to convince your team to kill Dragon when you perform a gank, then your team will take a huge advantage. And even if enemies will come to fight for Dragon, then just kill them all. Talon abilities are perfect when enemies group up.
Late game as Talon
In Late game Talon do not lose his actuality. But remember that is became hard to survive in team fightes. Enemy team already have plenty of good artifact on damage, and on other hand, you do not have any protective artifacts. So you must mastered your skills, to survive only by them. You need good reaction, and quickly react on various problems. One mistake, like unlucky jump and Talon watch the game as spectator.
Every time look what items opposite team buy, if you see some wards then it will be risk to use your ultimate, because enemies will kill you in a second.
In whole Late stage of games is not much different from Middle stage. It is not so fun, but your actions still same, find weak point and then crush them.
I can not say that Talon is a simple champion. Firstly you need to master AD champion on middle line, secondly you must know how to farm well, and thirdly – you must have a good reaction rate, and you need to take right actions. You can not die as Talon, because you either play well and kill enemies fastly, or from the very beginning of the game you will be just a ballast for your team because enemies will kill you as soon as possible. So if you want to master this hero, then try him over and over, and your first games i recommend to play with AI, to knew all basics about this Champion.
