Laning Against Talon

Laning Against Talon

Expect Talon to play aggressive in the early game. He is really strong at level 2 and 3 and can easily get an early first blood.

To prevent Talon from roaming, keep him pushed in while maintaining a good distance from him so he is unable to jump on to you and kill you.

When playing as a ranged champion, try to use your range advantage to abuse Talon as much as possible. Using basic attacks and abilities to get him low will make it hard for him to fight or jump in with Noxian DiplomacyQ.

Strategy VS Talon

Strategy VS Talon

When teams are grouping, make sure you ward your flanks to spot Talon before he is able to jump over the wall and assassinate your team.

As soon as Talon engages, try your hardest to burst him down before he is able to disengage and deal lots of damage.

As Talon is an assassin, expect him to look for picks with his Ultimate Shadow AssaultR. Avoid walking around Summoners Rift alone. Do not walk in unwarded areas of the map if you know Talon is nearby.

Talon Power Spikes

Talon Power Spikes

Talon is incredibly strong at level 2 and 3. Watch your positioning so you do not die to an early all-in.

Once Talon is level 6 and unlocks his Ultimate Shadow AssaultR, his kill pressure increases dramatically. You need to play more respectful at this time and avoid committing to extended fights.

If Talon’s got Mobi Boots, his roaming pressure intensifies. As soon as he goes missing, ping that he’s gone and push the wave
