Tips Against Talon in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yeager says “Start corrupting potion, then harrass him as much as possible at level 1 with auto attacks and E as soon as he walks up to cs. Level 2 you need to respect his damage because he can easily burst you down with electrocute and passive proc. Keep your distance from this point and rush a seekers armguard for some tankiness. You will outscale in this matchup, so your focus should be to farm up and ward properly because he will roam the entire game. You can't waveclear as good as him once he gets tiamat, so ward the river and the middle of the lane so you can see in which direction he's headed after he shoved the wave. Getting a sweeper will show his shadow during his ultimate. He also can't jump over walls if you use your W: ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA). Doran + 2 Pots + Time Warp Tonic + Cloth Armor Early. I'd run Ignite against him because it's a winnable matchup if you cast your E properly. The trick here is to NEVER get hit by W (when IT IS RETURNING TO TALON). If you do get hit BACK OFF and wait for the debuff to wear off. If he hits you with both Forward W and Backward W he can jump on you with Q (you can bait it if he's low hp with your E). After 6 in the Talon matchup you will push (with or without minion demat) -> go bot ONLY when you see him being ON LANE. A Talon can one shot mostly anyone (besides tanks) if he's waiting for them on a bush and there's little to nothing you can do, but you can play around it by always pushing and roaming first (And returning through other ways OR recalling). I believe Talon isn't a very difficult matchup because of his predictibility. Post 6 you can engage on him only after you poked him down a bit with your Q (you can kite him from a long distance with Q, care to mobis/yomuus). One Trick Talon players do is that they like to stay nearby mid -> wait for you to go to the middle of the lane and then jump with E over a wall and insta damage you, do not fall for that. Always ping when he's leaving and make him lose CS. Take alternative routes to follow him bot/top BUT BE CAREFUL -- he has no walls, he can jump anywhere. The trick is to push first / roam first or kill him on lane. Get Tabis if you struggle in the matchup. Pick Cleanse/Barrier if you feel you are going to get outplayed by his burst.”
TALIYAH PRIMER: Ultimate Guide to Taliyah MID [S11 ITEMS] by Drewmatth Taliyah | Taliyah Player
Yeager says “You can harass him level 1 but DO NOT underestimate his level 2 all-in, keep your distance at all times. That's where most people die because they don't expect the damage. Get early seekers armguard as it helps out a ton against AD champions. When he gets tiamat, he will just shove the wave, and roam to other lanes. Not much you can do here, except for spam pinging your teammates to back off. Get lots of wards so your team can see where he's moving. ”

crabbix says “Try not to die at level 2. Match his roams with your ultimate, but don't walk into unwarded jungle to do so.”
RezoneVerified says “Build Zhonya early. Punish for CSing in melee range! Tabis if a full AD team. Care for early roams.”

Yeager says “Bait out his W(Rake) before you go for trades. Be careful of his level 3 burst, because it will kill you on the spot if he already poked you with w. Get a early seekers armguard to counter lethality he gets from items. ”

iZianni says “We win early, then he hits one item and becomes a nightmare. Build Zhonyas and hop to god your team doesn't give him 9 kills in the side lane. Its hard to pressure lane if you build early Zhonyas because of the mana pool so it usually becomes a sacrifice :(. Seekers and Lost Chapter extremely important.”
Zianni's Challenger Syndra Guide by iZianni | Syndra Player
wDesired says “Even though you scale better than Talon, the pressure he can apply on the map early game is hard for your team to play against, try warding around mid lane to figure out where he is roaming to ”
wDesired says “Easy matchup for Akali just buy Cloth armor and pots; you still deal more damage lvl 1~5 and rush seekers ”
wDesired says “Skill matchup favoring Talon Try to bait or wait till he uses R on something else before going in with R”

Tips Against Talon in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

EUWRATS says “Try to gank him early before he gets fed from sidelanes because if he does he will invade you in your jungle and just one shot you. Super slippery try to gank him if you have a mid laner with cc or you have your R”
[S11] Challenger Rank 1 Hecarim WORLD EUWRATS by EUWRATS | Hecarim Player
RedNBlue says “Talon jungle is just like qiyana jungle except for Talon jungle is better. But not when Trundle is involved then it gets down to Qiyana level.”
chevy the sloot says “Pray your mid laner doesn't get shoved in because he will just perma ward your jungle and then save R + ignite to solo jungle invade you. Paired this with a heavy invade jungler and you can't play. He likes to perma ward your raptors btw. Pull them to the bush and get all the chickens out of vision”

Suseri says “Meditate once he uses his ult try to follow his e over walls with your Q.”

Do1HaveTh3Sauce says “High burst assassin, better roams than you if you aren't paying attention to the map.”

Riealone says “Once he gets 2-3 kills he will roam. Into your jungle. And you can't counter that by any means. And its hard to gank him as well”
litecrunch says “If the enemy has a Talon mid then you have to watch out for it. It will be pretty hard to play the game because a lot of Talon and Qiyana players love roaming your jungle and will try to find you and kill you. This is especially likely to happen when your on your second buff in the beginning of the game.”

liserith says “Last year, Talon jungle was pretty good, but this year, its fallen off. He can still one-shot you with his combo, so respect has to be given, but if you avoid his initial burst with your R, you can live. ”
Off-Meta Non-Crit Kindred by liserith | Kindred Player
Stratogos says “He can 1shot at will but he has to use all abilities on you making you the factor on teamfights because he will all his Health trying to kill someone ”
[S11] [10.25] Junglesticks Guide ~ Are you Afraid? by Stratogos | Fiddlesticks Player
Kindredgarten says “If Talon gets fed he will probably be in your jungle A LOT so try to prevent that. Just a pain in the ass if the Talon player knows what they're doing. Hard to gank if your mid has no CC too. You can prevent his burst with your ultimate though, like against any assassin.”

Tips Against Talon in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Sovereign Kitten says “You out-range him with your (Q), however, he has better roaming potential and you can't do a thing about it. If you are not poking him from a certain range, and avoiding his (W) which is in your (E) auto attack range, you will simply lose trades. Keep your distance, (Q) him and capitalize on his roaming by sieging his tower, but make sure to ping that he is missing and keep your eyes on where he has run off too, he is after all a roaming champion focused on flanking over walls and catching people by surprise. A bit of Armor and HP will go a long way in terms of keeping you alive from most all in AD assassins.”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
Drake6401 says “If you're worried about him super early on, just farm until first back and pick up a cloth armor. He wants to build lethal so early armor items really hurt his damage. Wait until level three for a fight because he's at his most advantaged at level 2 because he has all of his damage up and you still have one ability to go. If you feel the need, get an oricle lens to sweep when he uses his ultimate. It will locate his positon for you to hit him with Q and E.”

MarkFromSingedMains says “Can't use his lunge Q or E whilst on your W, does a lot of damage but shouldn't be able to nuke you unless already fed.”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Getting hit by his W all the time should not upset you as long as it's only the first part of it. Be careful not to die lvl 2-3 and you should be winning that lane. If he starts pushing you hard, that means he'll plan to roam somewhere so warn your team immediately! Otherwise if he manages to get a few kills here and there, you wont survive more than 2 sec. vs him.”
[11.2] BEST YASUO BUILDS & MATCHUPS (TOP / MID) by The_Unf0rgiv3n | Yasuo Player
wff010 says “Rare pick top but I've seen it. He supposed to have one of the strongest level 2's or something but you don't care. Run e level 1, push, get level 2 first and level up w, and just all in him. Or, just let him all in you when he hits level 2 because you win that. Just save e and w for when you're low.”
Yasuperior says “Try to harass as much as possible levels 1-3. You can windwall his W. Take many short trades.”
Timesoul977 says “Pantheon is a assassin killer, your should win most trades with him. Don't over extend when hes jungler.”

refz says “take barrier. call your jg to lvl3 gank. dont be stupid with his walljumps, dont follow him if the map not warded. push the lane in to cancel his ganking priority”
Sylas Builds (BETA)✨🔥 by refz | Sylas Player
lulw says “Pretty okay laning phase, not that hard, windwall his w, then all in, he cant kill you in anyway. But good talons will save it for melee range to have it go through/behind windwall. He does a lot of dmg so be careful. If you get hit by the double w then you might be dead. Give up lane pressure when your windwall is down. Talon has a lot of damage this season so be careful. ”

Noodles912 says “Just sit under tower till 11. Ping teammates if he roams. If he looks to ult you, E+W will do the trick (if he is low hp, you wont need to E). You hard outscale, but he will get fed because teammates never listen. Mind you own business, and farm it up.”
