Since season 6, Talon has been famous as a powerful mainstay with extremely good burst damage and extremely good sustain. Going to Teamfight Tactics season 6.5, Talon has been changed to an Elegant general and this makes him even stronger when he has the effective help of other strong units. So how to use the Talon – Elegant squad most effectively? Let’s find out together.
Talon in the Assassin – Elegant lineup is a pretty strong rank climbing plan at the moment
Basically, the prerequisite of this squad will be to own Talon early to ensure damage in the early game. You can use Twitch or Nocturne with Talon to trigger 2 Assassins early. For the front row, Bodyguard units like Darius, Poppy are the first choice at the moment when physical damage squads are so popular.
The ideal starting lineup with the Assassin team
In the mid-game, you should prioritize activating the 3rd Elegant milestone rather than sending many Assassin units into the field. Remember that VIP Talon will make skill damage standard damage, so the ability to finish the target of this piece is already great. So generals like Leona, Syndra will be the top shopping priority next to Talon and then Assassin units.
With the priority playing around Talon, you should apply slowroll play at level 6 to maximize the rate of 2 money champions. However, if you are too “unlucky” and can’t roll Talon to 3 stars before stage 5, you can consider pushing to level 8 and switch to playing the main Kha’Zix. You also do not need to worry about wasting items when the 2-star Talon with VIP effect still has an extremely large amount of damage.
In the middle of the game, Talon’s VIP effect is more valuable than activating 4 Assassins
Towards the end of the game, what you need to do is complete the 4 Assassins milestone with Ekko and Kha’Zix. Ekko is a particularly important unit as it gives a large amount of attack speed to Assassins dealing more damage. In addition, you can add Blitzcrank to the squad to get the Recycling milestone with Ekko to increase the rigidity of the mains.
The squad you should aim for is at level 8, but if there are no conditions, leaving Silco will not affect the strength of the Assassin team too much.
As for choosing the technology core, the upgrade you should own the most is VVIP when it will help Talon have an extremely large amount of health every time an allied champion Thanh Lich is defeated. In addition, the Smoke Bomb core is also extremely suitable for this squad when Talon or Kha’Zix have not too good defense. You can even choose the Defense Squad core with the effect of increasing the defense of the backline to ensure that the Assassin on your team survives as long as possible.
As for building equipment, Infinity Sword is clearly always the best item for Talon in particular and Assassins in general. In addition, the Barrage Cannon and Alchemy Towel will help Talon deal damage at a much safer distance. If you have a lot of items and want to play even the main Kha’Zix, the Hand of Justice is the best item for this unit besides Infinity Sword.
