Just nerf DFG and suddenly she'll be balanced.
EDIT: Just make it so when DFG is on cooldown it loses all its stats. Or maybe merge it with Athene's but have it lose all of its stats whilst it's on cooldown... Something, man. DFG just brings too much to the table.

So will Talon also be having his silence removed? Or is it not considered ranged?

Can I just point out the only reason she has high damage is the ability to not get cc'd by her target when going in the the qqwe combo and such

Silence removes most of the options from the enemy player once Le Blanc engages and she's able to do so from a reasonable range. On characters with longer time to kill, less mobility or less reliability by contrast silences are less of an issue.

Plan is to then watch how Le Blanc performs after this change, see whether she's still got a spot as a very mobile, single target burst champ, or whether we need to give her some form of compensation for the removed silence.
Was nerfing the range of her silence thought of in an attempt to balance her? I always felt that her chains and dash/blink would support the idea of her having to get close to her target before silencing them. The standard combo of Q-R would no longer be a real issue of she had to put herself in range to be harassed before she actually uses it. It would not be to bad seeing as how she would still have her dash so that she can get in and use it.

Blitzcrank used to have a 3/4/5 second AoE silence. Let that sink in.

Talon's Silence isn't very long, and he's mostly melee, so he's probably safe.

You heard it here guys, prepare for Talon to lose his silence.

How will this pertain to Talon, given that his silence puts him in melee range?
