Guide to Countering Illaoi as Talon

Tips for Playing as Talon against Illaoi

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 Illaoi

When your spirit gets pulled out, fight back if you can. Dealing damage to Illaoi reduces the spirit's duration.

Killing Tentacles whenever possible will make it much easier to win a fight against Illaoi.

Avoid grouping up for Leap of Faith to reduce the number of Tentacles available to Illaoi.
