Makes me think of Garrett from Thief more than either of the Assassin's Creed protagonists, but I guess Garrett tries to avoid using his sword, where as this guy it doesn't seem so much like it.

does anyone notice that his blades look similar to nocturnes?

i think this guy is gonna have a bit of stealth worked into him. i hope he doesn't overshadow shaco completely though :\

the name "Talon" probably has some reference to birds, so idunno. maybe he has a backstory with swain? the whole killing people in noxus thing is too shaco for me. i don't want this to make him look like even more ****.

well, it looks to me like we've got another melee dps character in the ranks. lookin' forward to it, riot!

Love the first picture of him.

Please let him work with dodge, if by scaling or, ability use, or some other mechanic.

Feel more saddened that his weapon may be another that is so up-done that it tries to look like too much instead of being just good weapons.

Lol, ripoff from Assassin's Creed.

Sure wish Riot's champ makers could have an original concept for once.

Domion: Ripoff of Arathi Basin battleground in WoW.


Dude how many original concepts do you really think there are in the world?

Technically you could say AC was an expanded Prince of Persia concept, playing an assassin instead of a prince,

Arathi basin is your basic Point capture / CTF concept used since we used sticks as guns,

Wow is after all just RPG extension

and LoL itself is based on DOTA concept, where there were at least 500 different champions to pick from in the course of its history.

Not to mention that there are countless suave, sophisticated mercenary / assassin types in literature alone, without relating to video games.

So if the designers find a concept they like and "borrow" it to enhance the game, then as long as they bring their own twist to it, I am not about to complain.

Well... not until Duke Nukem comes rolling down the lane at me...
