Swain General information

Swain skills

Ravenous Flock

Swain can periodically target nearby immobilized enemy champion to rip out a Soul Fragment from them, dealing bonus magic damage and pulling them towards him. If the target would be brought past Swain, they are instead knocked back instead. Swain can harvest a soul fragment from a dead champion if Swain is near them.

Flock: Swain's ravens bring nearby Soul Fragments to him, healing him for a percent of his maximum health. Each soul fragment increases his maximum health by 5.

Swain tips and tricks

details icon

During the laning phase, watch out for your Support or allies CC. Make sure you make use of your Passive and pull the enemy forward whenever they get CC’d.

Swain’s Root NevermoveE will only trigger on the closest enemies hit on its return. Take aim and try to use it so it leaves little room for the enemy to react and dodge it.

Activate your Ultimate Demonic AscensionR as soon as a fight occurs to increase your chances of coming out ahead and surviving the fight.
