Champion Sneak Peek: Talon, The Blade's Shadow

By Average Gatsby [2]

It takes a truly resourceful gentleman to seamlessly combine function and style, particularly on the battlefield. It should come as no surprise, then, that the upcoming champion of the League is a man of both utility and flair.

Allow me to introduce Talon Talon, The Blade's Shadow. In addition to looking every bit the part of the cloaked and Mercy.png cowled assassin that he is, Talon's cloak of blades makes him a dangerous and terrifying presence on the battlefield. It's probably best to steer clear of this cloaked and dangerous champion on the Field of Justice, or he won't be the only one pulling a disappearing act.

Talon Mechanics Preview

By Ryan 'Morello' Scott [3]

Greetings, Summoners!

Today we wanted to bring you a peek into the mechanics behind Talon Talon, the Blade's Shadow, the new assassin that's joining the League!

Talon, the Blade's Shadow, is a physical damage assassin who specializes in high-Cutthroat.png mobility, high-Shadow Assault.png risk, high-reward gameplay. Our goal with Talon was to create a powerful but fragile melee character with specialized tools to make him both Noxian Diplomacy.png deadly and Shadow Assault.png evasive. As a result, what Talon lacks in durability and sustain, he dishes out in Cutthroat.png mobility and Mercy.png power.

The driving force behind Talon's gameplay is the way that he engages and disengages from combat using his four abilities:

Mercy
Mercy

Talon's auto-attacks deal additional damage to a target that is under the influence of any crowd control effect.


Noxian Diplomacy
Noxian Diplomacy

Talon viciously stabs his enemy, dealing heavy physical damage and causing them to leave a blood trail that Talon can use to track them.


Rake
Rake

Talon fans out three blades in front of him that quickly return to him, dealing damage and Slow icon slowing any target hit in either direction.


Cutthroat
Cutthroat

An ability that allows Talon to catch his enemies by surprise. Talon leaps behind his target and Silence icon silences them for a short duration, amplifying the damage of any of his follow up attacks and abilities.


Shadow Assault
Shadow Assault

Talon enters stealth for a short duration, gaining a movement speed boost and sending blades that deal damage to all enemies in their path flying in every direction. Once the blades reach a certain distance, they pause and form a circle. When Talon reappears from stealth, the blades return to him, once again dealing damage to any opponent they pass through.


Playing Talon effectively is all about reading the situation and reacting strategically to your target. Shadow Assault.png Shadow Assault can be either your saving grace or your deadliest advance. Using it to disappear can sting your target and leave them chasing ghosts. But if it's a fight you want, using it to initiate in conjunction with Cutthroat.png Cutthroat, Noxian Diplomacy.png Noxian Diplomacy, and Mercy.png Mercy can deal significant burst damage.

To sum up, Talon's a mean, shadowy, vicious assassin... and we're excited to see him join the League soon. And as a side note, his Cutthroat.png mobility and Shadow Assault.png elusiveness makes him a very good pick on Dominion!
