He was considered niche before s3.
He apparently wasn't viable before s3.
Became OP with BC.

Nerfed into the ground...



No longer the assassin he once was... RIP Talon</3

(Now the only one he wins against in lane is karthus and lux).
When assassins like panth and akali exist, it's sad to see Talon die.

Lol, the same patch that enrfed him also made his e actually WORK; he is still strong and sitll has the same winrate bas before the change, he is still one of the strongest mids currently.

I dream of what would he have been like on release with his E actually working.

In my nightmares.

He deals more damage in endgame than before :S It wasn't a nerf, but a fix.

With the new Black Cleaver, this adjustment was necessary, as he become way stronger than in S2.

He still is ways stronger than in S2 by the way this was not a nerf.

I fully disagree.

Assassins are mid game/early game champs.

NERFING his early/mid game and buffing his late game is useless.


Compare him to akali or panth.

akali is not an early game champ at all.. she excels midgame and late game... if used correctly... u just have to learn when to disengage after hte initial charge in .... late game my akali has 650+ ap and around 2.8~3k health enough to easily burst down all carries/ and still get away leaving my team to finish off any stragglers

Oh, I definitely agree. What I meant was, Talon is nothing when considered against those 2 champs. There is absolutely no reason why you'd choose him over pantheon right now.

His late game better, but early/mid game nerfed. Early/mid game is where he gets kills.
Talon doesn't REACH late game because he can't get many kills mid anymore.


TL;DR Weaker than before.
