So where exactly does he lane? He seems like he needs levels, but he can't handle any of the bruisers top. Can he lane against mages? It doesn't seem like he could last hit very well at the start vs them.

Any ideas?

Hmm, doesn't seem like a competitive pick at all, but he'll be fun for normals. I just don't see him working out in lane, and jungling Talon doesn't seem to practical.

If you're going to go mid against Brand, I recommend you buy boots and 3 pots. Otherwise it gets ugly fast.

I think wherever brand might be laning Talon shouldn't be.

I haven't played him yet, but isn't his cuthroat like a mage-kicker skill? lol, its damage + silence, what else do you need for your harassing ^^?

It doesn't have amazing range, it does no damage (it only amplifies the unit takes by 3-15% for 3 seconds) and the silence is only 1 second. Basically, you have to get in range without being hit first, and attempt to out burst a mage (not the easiest thing to do)

He might be able to handle mid lane where the other squishy solos go. Work her out like Katarina.
Or you can go bottom with a support and play a bit conservative.

Yeah, you just run the risk of running into strong casters, you're probably screwed when you run into higher-tier casters and with the meta, that's pretty common.

But then again, with support nerfs, kids might try and get cute and throw their AD carry in mid, in which case, you're still screwed if its a good laner.
