Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.pngInstant re position, just cant be beat
21.pngReally good on swain, allows time for swainmetamorphism.png to heal you up. 
12.pngAllows you to be all over the map constantly be in the right place at the right time.
14.pngNot my preference but i will take it on occasions if the other team has someone like36.png to deal with.

Masteries Back to Top

Thunderlord's is just too easy to proc as Swain, iv experimented with Deathfire as well as going into the resolve tree but i feel this is the strongest combo.


If you don't roam a lot id suggest Battle trance instead of Bounty hunter, but bounty hunter is going to end up giving you the most dmg in the end.

swainpassive.pngAwesome passive, combine with Dorans ring you will never go oom during laning phase.
swainbeam.pngGreat zoning tool, Great farming tool, procs thunderlords easily, perfect for poking, my favorite swain spell.
swainshadowgrasp.pngAnother great zoning tool, combine it with swainbeam.pngandswainmetamorphism.pngfarming has never been easier
swaintorment.pngAmplifies your dmg by 20% on target and directsswainbeam.png , the dmg amplification doesn't scale however so max this last.
swainmetamorphism.pngWill lkeep you alive forever in team fights, only downside is mana cost increases the longer its up, so keep an eye on your mana, my general rule of thumb is two spell rotations then back off and regain some mana.

The Combo:
  open with swainbeam.pngfor a slow so you can land swaintorment.pngswainshadowgrasp.png easily, follow up with swainmetamorphism.png3030.png and chase for another combo. you can pop swainmetamorphism.png first but if you miss your follow up spells its going to be stuck on cd for awhile limiting your options.
  If they're in your face you can actually swainshadowgrasp.pngswaintorment.png and your dmg amplification will hit before the dmg from swainshadowgrasp.png

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Dorans and your passive, you wont have mana issues and can outlast your opponent in lane

Core Items

    swains bread and butter. these items are irreplaceable

Situational Items

    Great choices and my favorite. you become essentially unkillable.
    also great choices if you feel your lacking dmg
3030.pngThis is swains item, gives you great sustain during fights and its activate lets you abuse yourswaintorment.png
3065.pngAwesome item, i chose this second vs mages. It benefits both swainmetamorphism.png and 3030.png giving you ridiculous health regain.
3157.pngThe fact that swainmetamorphism.png works while its activated is way too strong, you can go from no health to half during its duration.


I prefer 3001.pngand 3068.png the majority of the time, makes you way too hard to kill and you still do a respectable amount of dmg.

Matchups Back to Top

General Back to Top

  Swain is an absolute lane bully, use swainbeam.png whenever they get close to last hit and get some poke in while pushing the lane as well. Combo with swainshadowgrasp.png and watch them drop to half health as you walk out of range and continue to farm. I haven't had a match up problem with any champ but characters with channeled ults like161.png55.png and 90.png can prove tricky since you have no hard cc. Lanes like this you want to farm, push, and look elsewhere for kills early, until you become just to much for them to handle.

  only real counter to Swain is14.png and the fact that hes so underplayed a lot of people underestimate the amount of healing he can pull off with swainmetamorphism.png3030.pngand 3065.png. most times they will only bring one 14.png if that.

  Don't be afraid to roam, especially if you're doing well in lane. swainbeam.pngswainshadowgrasp.pngandswainmetamorphism.png will push waves quickly and allow you to go gank other lanes. I tend to prefer bot, having two targets to stack bounty hunter on. This is most effective when they have someone such as202.png with no real escape mechanics.

  Abuse your advantage early and often. Swain tends to fall off around the 30-40 min mark. Once you get your core items you are really hard to kill and if your splitting they will be forced to send multiple champs to stop you, creating a lot of space for your team. Constantly be pushing waves, taking towers, and causing havoc all around the map.
