“Talon has become an easier over time but he still has the highest base MR in the game. Seekers early and match his roams when you can. Don't contest early levels and certainly don't try to extend fights with past 6”
“you need to play def in early but you will win early and late game”
“REACTIVE lane, not proactive. I'll farm and poke safely with E, but won't go for passive procs after level 2. My W is enough to nullify his W, but I won't stick around to trade back, his all-in burst is extreme. He can start roaming as early as level 3 using his E and once he gets fed in a side lane, he'll get fed from me as well. He's hard to follow since Lux is immobile, and without good vision setup in my own jungle it's difficult to know whether or not he's roaming bot/top or waiting to kill me. I'll spam pings and buy control wards and if I can see his movements, I'll follow and try to help my teammates. If I can't follow, I'll try to push in, but will probably not go for plates unless I have vision on him - his E makes him really fast and Mobility Boots only add to that. I'll build Zhonya's for his R and honestly for the armor (Ninja Tabi are a good purchase as well).”
“Build Zhonya early. Punish for CSing in melee range! Tabis if a full AD team. Care for early roams.”
“Respect talons damage pre 6 you win afterwards because ult damages him through his R”
“Start E and get early damage. Look for hooks and q's to make sure he is around 50% hp at all times so that he refrains from roaming, he has huge burst so don't kill yourself doing it. He will shove you in and roam all lane, assume he is coming if you go to roam. E away if he R's and don't engage with E if he has R. Steelcaps arn't bad here if they have a lot of other AD but you want to go mobis to match his side lane pressure most of the time.”
“Seeker's armguard rush. Respect his lvl 2 all in, it's one of the strongest in the game. Play around his passive stacks. If he only hits 1 part of his W, he won't be able to proc the passive easily so you can trade back. He's mainly looking to shove the wave and then just afk roam all game, so it's your job to secure vision around his lane and the river sides so you can ward your teammates ahead of time. After the first hex core upgrade you can shove him in. Your wave clear is 10x better than his. You can't match his roaming, but you can push way faster and punish him by taking tower plates. Even if he sacrifices a wave and tower plates to get a kill in the side lane, it's still way more worth for you. ”
“Insane roam potential with the ability to kill you easy if you are not careful. Best way to kill them is lv2-3 with barrier/exhaust. They will often underestimate you and as long as you hit the q's you out dmg them. warn the team for roams and scale. ”
“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: ”
Forced to wave clear to prevent roaming, forced to fight to wave clear.
