Are you sure about that?

When you have 6 items on talon you deal about 2-4k damage in under a second depending on how glass cannon you're willing to go.


Yes because presumably the enemies will also have at least 4 items, even if you're insanely ahead. You won't kill bruisers in under a second as talon and as soon as you're out of your stealth you are gonna blow up because you went glass cannon.

Sometimes making champs too good is a bad thing.

Heh, he's just be staring at the Talon winrate counter every single day until it finally got up to ~5 for the day.

Hi, I'm Talon. I have the fifth highest win rate in the game at the moment, but no one's bothered to try me out seriously yet.

Except you know he has below 40% win rate in plat +. Don't be tripping phreak we all know talon is just a pubstomp champion and rapes in bronze. But seriously speaking he's trash tier.

A lot of people don't realize that Talon's best assassination tool (his ult) is also his best escape.

That's like pretty much the reason why he's less capable as an assassin than Zed and especially Kha'Zix.

Kha'Zix has tons of escapes which are not his primary damage tools.

So he can actually survive the assassination process.

--------------------------

Talon's also an AoE assassin.

Just think about it.

But other than the incongruity, it also makes it so they can't really make his ult and Rake do as much damage because they're AoE.

Hi, I'm talon. If I get BC and LW, I can shred tanks and still do insane damage to the rest of the enemy team thanks to sweet aoe. Oh, BT you say? Yeah I get tons of great uses from that item, considering the scalar on my ult.

You have to consider that there is over 100 champions, which btw are used across every spectrum. If players took a look to see which champions have the highest win rate and ACTUALLY play those champions, then you'd see them in almost every game or other game. If players truely read the GD and the Dev Tracker then you would surely see a rise in Talon players, maybe even thread to nerf him.

Remember what scarra said? Something about him not welcoming nerfs/buffs to help the low elo.
I think of it as talon being like akali, although less pubstomp.
I don't really have much of a good reason to give input but I do believe talon is not very strong.
My only real reasons for saying this is watching twitch streams where talon doesn't really excel like an assassin should.
