Tips for Playing as Talon against Ekko

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

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

Ekko is significantly weaker when his ultimate is down. Watch for the trail he leaves behind to determine if Chronobreak is available.
