Carrion Renewal
// Whenever Swain kills an enemy or structure, he restores 13 - 30 (based on level) mana. On enemy champion takedowns, he regains an additional 9% maximum mana.
// Basicly you get mana for csing. If you assist or kill champions you get more mana. Combined with dorans-ring.gif Doran's Ring give great mana sustain on lane if you can CS decent

Decrepify
// Active: Swain commands Beatrice to fly to the target location, where she remains for 4 seconds.
Beatrice will attack enemies within the area, prioritizing the target of swain-torment.png Torment, other champions in range and then any target in range. Beatrice's attacks deal magic damage and slow. Beatrice deals double damage against minions and executes them below 10 health.

// Your bread and butter skill. Max first. Good for zoning, trading, farming. Does really much Damage. It will prioritize enemies with swain-torment.png Torment then enemy champions and if no champions near any other target. Decrepify has no cast time and does not interrupt Swain's previous orders.

Nevermove
// Active: Swain marks the target area. After a 0.875-second delay, talons grab onto enemy units within, dealing magic damage and rooting them for a short duration.
// Max second. Great wave clear early combined with swain-decrepify.png Decrepify. Also good for zoning. It has cast time so try predict enemies movement to hit it. Or combine with q slow for easier root. Be aware that swain-nevermove.png Nevermove has much bigger range than swain-decrepify.png Decrepify

Torment
// Active: Swain afflicts the target enemy with a curse that deals magic damage to them over 4 seconds, amplifying Swain's damage against them by 20% for the duration.
// DoT + Damage Amplifier for 4 seconds. Max last cause Damage Amplifier does not scale with level. It is used to prioritize targets for swain-decrepify.png Decrepify. It is usefull for breaking yasuo shield or for poking. Good trade combo is E + Q

Ravenous Flock
// Toggle: Swain assumes the form of a demonic raven. During this time, lesser ravens strike out, one every 0.2 seconds at up to 5 nearby enemies and dealing magic damage to them, prioritizing champions. Each enemy can only be attacked by one raven at a time and only once per second.

Swain heals himself for a small amount against minions and monsters, and for a bigger amount against champions.

Ravenous Flock cannot select the same target twice in a row.

// Swain transforms into Big Bird (Raven) and he spawns lesser ravens that do Damage to 5 enemies around him. Ravens cant attack same target for 1 second. If they hit enemies they heal him for some amount, which is really big vs champions. It continues to deal dmg and heal if you use zhonya so with ult zhonya you can sometimes healt to full hp from 50% for duration of invulerability of zhonya.

Discusion



RoA (rod-of-ages.gif Rod of Ages) is insanely strong on him. I prefer it over hextech-glp-800.gif Hextech GLP-800. RoA gives 200hp more and 20ap more and is cheaper by 400 gold. Active is meh. Get this only if you dont manage to buy RoA till 20 minute mark. One tip. If you are running from, for example, cait ult and there are no minions around. Use swain-nevermove.png Nevermove anywhere and turn your R after that for heal from RoA passive. It can save your life. Think about that!

Annie

Easy

Easy matchup, zone her from farm with q

VS

Irelia

Easy

Easy, she cant farm or kill you. Just zone her with q, poke with e+q. But always ward and check where is her jungler if you want to go more aggresive. When you get zhonya roa you can 1v2 easy

VS

Veigar

Easy

Easy matchup, zone him from farm with q. Gets harder late game if you cant zhonya his ult. But overall easy matchup

VS

Yasuo

Medium

It really depends on yours and Yasuos skill. But it also depends on on lane. Top lane he prolly wont get ignite, at mid he will get it.
