Guide to Countering Draven as Talon

Tips for Playing as Talon against Draven

Shadow Assault is a powerful escape tool, but can also be offensively used to assault a group.

You can use Assassin's Path to get behind the enemy and set up for Noxian Diplomacy's melee attack.

Remember to pick your target before the fight. Focusing all of Talon's abilities on one target can be very rewarding, but splitting them up between many may leave you helpless.

Advice to Win Against Draven

Launch skillshots toward the landing position of Draven's Spinning Axes.

Disrupt Draven with the goal of making him drop his axes. If you do, his power drops dramatically.
