Can Talon Carry?

Hi guys. I bought Talon recently and he is so much fun. I consistently do well in lane with him and I can get ahead usually. But, I have noticed that come teamfights, I cannot really carry with him as well as say Malzahar or Jarvan.

I wait in a bush (not warded) until the fight occurs. I then pop in onto the closest carry and I burst them down. But, I get blown up by the other 4 team members right after. I love playing Talon and I try doing things like roaming and ganking to help my team. I am super effective in 1v1's and skirmishes, but full scale teamfights are impossible for me. It's either a 1 for 1 trade or me just staying on the outskirts, Raking the tanks.

So, GD, I am asking for pro tips on how to play talon. I am also wondering if he can carry like other assassins should be able to.


Maybe I need to rephrase this.

I am not asking: "Is Talon viable?"
I definitely think he is and I do fine with him during laning phase.

My question is: "How do play in teamfights as Talon?"
I just cannot put my hard-earned gold to use when I trade 1 for 1 in a teamfight with a carry that will potentially do less damage than I do.

yes he can carry.

He's mainly used against other mids to sort of counter them/shut them down.

uh that's really all i can say.

It's a legitimate question. I do well in lane, gank, and snowball.

But, I cannot carry.

talon is a counterpick. you can carry if you use him as a counterpick with an ap top/possibly jungle

Talon currently has a slightly over 50% win ratio.

Currently he can jungle or go mid/top to counter nearly every mage.

He can carry if you build him right
