Have to agree. I refunded him. He's just a craptastic Assassin who's capable of bombing dmg on a single target. I mostly only tried him top lane though, and I found myself regretting it immediately. His dmg bombing isn't really that great until his Ult is maxed. He lacks utility. He can't escape **** unless you happen to be fighting against a wall you can shadow over. If you save your shadow for that, your burst just took a hit. It's silly. Bad champ design, but a very cool concept. What would've been awesome is if he could choose where he places his shadow in a 600-800 cast range circle, and operate it from there. That'd allow for some really fun plays, and fit his theme way better. Also his ult should be buffed in dmg for Lvs 1 (by a good amount), and slightly for Lv 2. As it stands, like someone said before me, Talon is superior in every shape and way. Way more consistant burst, two kinds of CC, and an Ult that can be used to severely wound entire groups, or used to escape WHILE damaging several people chasing you. You can't go wrong with that.
