What are Talon's major counters ?

#1DartDragoonPosted 2/13/2013 8:08:05 AM
Been playing a lot of Talon mid lately, and last night I first picked him and the other team responded by picking Swain.

Now the rest of my team were like "GG Talon you got countered hard"

Then I 4-0'd Swain and steamrolled the whole enemy team afterwards.

So yeah, being kind of a new Talon player, which champs should I really be aware of ? Off the top of my head all I can think of is... maybe Kat ? Or Pantheon ?

Your major counter is people not getting hit by your rake. If people avoid getting hit by that or your ult you'd actually be challenged a bit while steamrolling faces.

Fisrt off, that Swain was bad.
Second off, any tanky mid. This includes Swain and Mordekaiser.

Nah he was prrety good, gave me a hard time but I just got one lucky kill and it was just worse and worse for him by that point.

Didn't think about Morde though...yeah, Morde would wreck the **** out of Talon :l

If I see Talon mid I just usually pick Lux and stay at max range where I can safely farm and harras, he can never touch me.

Trust me when I say Swain wins that lane if you're good with him. Talon can't get out and he knows where you go during your ult because of his birds in his ult.
Morde does that to people though. Just get the jungler to win your lane like everyone else does XD, and pray he doesn't manage to 2v1 you guys.

If your worried about that just main Chogath top mid or jungle, Its pretty hilarious. I somewhat agree that swain can give talon problems especially if he builds a seekers armguard early. I would say swain vs talon mid is more of a skill matchup. The site(lolcounter) probably included riven because of people swapping lanes in the event that your talon hard counters their ap mid
