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 immobilized enemy champions towards him dealing damage and extracting a Soul Fragment from them.

Death's Hand

Q

Swain fires several bolts of energy in front of him that deal damage. 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 enemies 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 gains bonus health and doubled health from Soul Fragments. While active, Swain drains all nearby enemies and damage and healing himself. After draining any amount of health, Swain can end the cast early: dealing damage to all nearby enemies.
