Try to CS using only Auto Attacks. Use Dancing Grenade to last hit when reloading.
Dancing Grenade does more damage after it kills a unit. Set up the minion wave to kill one or more minion to increase efficiency.
Dancing Grenade can do decent damage to enemy champions. Kill all melee and cannon minions then bounce Dancing Grenade of the casters to harass.
Use Dancing Grenade in a duel before you fire your 4th shot. This will increase the passive damage on the 4th shot.
Deadly Flourish and Captive Audience can be cast while reloading to maintain DPS.
Deadly Flourish can be used to last hit minions while walking back to lane.
Captive Audience puts a marker on enemies when then enter the circle of influence. Time this with Deadly Flourish to snare enemies in the AOE damage.
Curtain Call slows enemies. You can assist your team in chasing by landing even a single shot.
Farsight Alteration can be used during Curtain Call to help spot enemies in Fog of War
