Laning Against Swain

Laning Against Swain

Swain’s early game is rather weak. If you’re playing as an early game champion, try to get an early advantage to reduce his scaling.

His Root NevermoveE will only trigger on the first enemies he hits on its return. Stand near your Caster Minions and walk forwards when he throws it out so the minions get CC’d and not you.

At level 6, his kill pressure and survivability increases. Unless you have the advantage, disengage as soon as he activates his Ultimate Demonic AscensionR.

Strategy VS Swain

Strategy VS Swain

Swain is good in team fights thanks to his AOE Ultimate Demonic AscensionR. Forcing a fight or fighting when Swain isn’t around will make it easier for your team to win team fights.

Avoid grouping too closely around objectives or in team fights as it may allow Swain to land a really good multi-person NevermoveE and start the team fight.

Burst and poke is the best way of winning a fight against Swain. Try to poke him down before a team fight starts. When he activates his Ultimate Demonic AscensionR, burst him down so he is unable to dish out lots of damage.

Swain Power Spikes

Swain Power Spikes

At level 6, Swain’s damage output and survivability increases. You shouldn’t commit to a fight with him unless you can burst him down quickly as his Ultimate Demonic AscensionR will offer him extra protection and health regeneration.

Swain’s early game is abusable as he is really weak early on. Once the mid-game hits, you’ll have to play more respectable.

He is really good in team fights thanks to his AOE Ultimate Demonic AscensionR. Bursting him down at the start of the fight will make it difficult for him to deal damage and win the fight.
