Hey there this isn't a QQ thread about post-nerf Talon. I was hoping for advice on helping Talon's laning phase now that Rake can't be used as frequently as it was a big part of how I played Talon in lane.
Before the mana cost nerf I could spam Rake all day erryday and it would keep my opponent low. I could last hit more easily as they were afraid to approach. Now, when I can't harass as much I'm the one getting harassed and I have to play more passively and lose out on cs.
My question is what are some adjustments you can make to Talon's build/playstyle to lane more easily?
1) Mana Regen/5 runes
Saving up the IP for these but I'd imagine it helps out a lot and the mana cost of Rake wouldn't be as noticeable. Can anyone who runs these testify?
2) Maxing Q over W first
I know some people chose to max Q before W because it is a bulk of Talon's damage and now this seems to be a more tempting alternative. I haven't tried it out yet so if someone who typically goes this route can say something.
3) Match-ups to avoid as Talon
Riot has said Talon's weakness is suppose to be sustain and I think these changes have succeeded in making that so. Are there certain champs (particularly those with decent sustain) that you should avoid laning against as Talon?
