General information

swain Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Ravenous Flock

P

Swain's ravens passively collect Soul Fragments from enemies that heal him. Swain can also call upon his powers and pull immobalized enemy champions towards him dealing damage and extracting a Soul Fragment from them.

Death's Hand

Q

Swain fires several bolts of energy infront of him that deal damage. If a target is killed, the bolt will pierce through and hit enemies behind it. An enemy can be hit by multiple beams if close enough to Swain.

Vision of Empire

W

Swain unleashes a demon eye to scout a distant location. The eye detonates after a short period dealing damage and slows enememies in the area. Enemy champions are revealed and grant Swain a Soul Fragment.

Nevermove

E

Swain releases a burst of demonic energy that travels forward returns back to him. Enemies hit on the return path are rooted.

Demonic Ascension

R

Swain transforms into his final form making him a health absorbig demon draining the life from the 3 closest enemy champions. When his hunger is satisfied and enough life has been absorbed, Swain can cast Demonflare which ends his transformation and does massive AOE to his surrounding enemies.

Basic Combos

Drag 'n' Zap

E
Q

Typical trading combo.

Double Birdies

E
W

Best way to safely stay healthy in lane. It takes a chunk of mana early so be careful. Throw in a possible Q if you're feeling spicy.

For when people look for an all in you

Quick tips to play Swain

Swain's root from his

E only triggers on the first enemy it hits on the return. Try to aim it to where the end of the spell is just barely behind them so they don't have much time to react.

Remember your Passive can get your Soul Fragments from two specific things: champion deaths and champs locked with CC. Even if a champion doesn’t die near you, walk towards their death location to gain a stack.

Position your

W so it's harder for your target to move out of it. For example, if they're running, position it in front of their path so they either get hit or turn back towards you.
