Not squishy like other Talon's probably will be
Amazing farm and harass with W
Possibly the fastest character in the game when full build
A lot of nuke damage with Q and Trinity Force combined with his other abilities
Ridiculously low CD on his Ultimate
A decently large jump (E) to chase down those champs that try to get away.
Only escape mechanic is his Ultimate and Flash
Not as much damage output as an AD Talon
People will still probably see you as a threat so you may get targeted.
Use this ability whenever you can spare the mana to get last hits on minions. You can also use it straight after an auto attack as it resets your attack timer, giving you two hits. Once you gain Trinity Force, use your Q as much as possible.
With your W ability, use it to farm and harass. Stay in lane, throw your W and try to hit as many minions as possible and champs if you can. Once you get Boots of Mobility you can move on to cleaning up other lanes, resulting in a massive gold income for you. Once you get Trinity Force, you are an even bigger lane pusher and will be almost unstoppable with all the wards you should be throwing down so you can see when the enemy is coming to try and kill you. Keep this up throughout the whole game and you won't have a problem pushing lanes while getting a massive gold and level advantage on the other team.
This is your main gank initiation ability. Use it to jump onto the enemy champ followed up by a slow from your W, then a Q and then just continue to chase and use your abilities when they are off CD. The great thing about Cutthroat is the fact that it increases the damage you deal to the champion affected by it. If you find yourself in a team fight, think to yourself who would be the best to silence. Say they had a Singed, he would probably be best to silence as he could use his Fling ability to get one of your team mates killed. Jump onto him with E, then just run away and wait for a more suitable target to come forward to try harass. Then just do the rotation: E, W, Q.
R. Shadow Assault
This is the only ability allows you to get away. Use it when either your Flash is on CD or use it in combination with Flash to ensure your safety. This ability is also a great chase ability as you gain stealth, increased move speed and if you can use Cutthroat to jump onto a champion, the daggers will fly back through them, dealing a ton of damage. Try to only use this ability on a champion afflicted with your silence from Cutthroat as it also amplifies the damage you deal.
