Swain General information

Swain skills

Ravenous Flock
Ravenous FlockP

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 deals magic damage to all enemies around him and heals himself for each enemy hit. At the end of the duration, or if Swain recasts this ability, he with cast Demonflare and end his Ultimate.

Demonflare: Releases a nova of energy, dealing magic damage to nearby enemies along with 37.5% of the health drained during Demonic Ascension.

Swain tips and tricks

Swain is really weak in the early game. Avoid fighting too much and wait until you have some levels and items behind you before playing aggressive.

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.
