Counter Tips

Talon only deals Physical damage, so building armor will lower his damage output significantly.
Talon is very vulnerable when his Cutthroat is on cooldown. Try to take advantage of the situation when it is on cooldown.
Make sure someone on your team carries a Pink ward for a teamfight to detect him during his ultimate.
