Introduction

hello fellow leaguers. this is my first guild her on moabfire i have been playing mid for quite sometime i enjoy xearth, swain, lux, brand, and annie. ever since i started playing swain i noticed that most guilds, i didnt like so i did some adventuring in my own build and found this works really well. anyway comment (after you have tried this build a few times please) and tell me how to improve the guild.


Guide Top

pros and cons

swain

cons

mana depenant (likes blue)


Guide Top

Runes

well, my runes are pretty straight foward.


Mrp5 yellows = more stastian on top of your passive

magic pen reds= more damage hits harder against mr stacks

APpl blues = more damge and makes your levels more imporant( wicth they already are)

ap purples= best runes in game just do it


Guide Top

Masteries

again really straight foward



typical 21/0/9 masteries

ap and cdr and magic pen in offnce

movement speed and buff increase in utility

i take movement speed because it allows you to catch up and maybe hit a decripy when they are running and lets you last hit and harrass better.


Guide Top

Items

this the real difference to most guild sit here

start boots more speed is always good help (as i said before ) last hit and harras

then meaki in to chalice of harminy ( see chalice vs cat) great synergy with innate

then go boots more speed more abity to harrass and last hit

then take hextect revolver great synergey with your ult

[then[ rylias start with gaints belt then hit the rylias

then [wota more synergy with ult

then finally take your deathcap ]for the damage

then you get AS for more damge and helps your "up in your face" playstyle you should have


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

ignite true damage best spell for any mage


flash i mean yea


over viable picks



heal= you need more susatin more time to cast

teleport= against like lb or kass

any spell other then revive


Guide Top

chalice vs cata

i figured that i need to explin myslef in why i like chalice more then i do cat in to roa

in swains case swain get passive mana regen on last hits this regen is affected my the passive of chalice. this allows you to stay more with last hits maks his innate give more mana when you need when cata is only when you level so what if you level with full mana or don't get a level in the middle of a ight and go oom.

the other real reason i like chalice better is its cheaper for more sustain. MR helps you take the mid harrass from you oppenet and help you live through a burst and let your ult heal you 30 MR is alot on top of you base it really decresses the damage of your enemy.

890 is 435 gold cheaper then 1325 assumming that you going to upgrade right away thats 3035 gold on just your 1st time alone thats almost 150 cs if you went chalice you would have 2145 gold thats almost enough to get hextech and a gaints belt thats 20 less heath and 20 less ap grant it however that spell vamp and an earlier ryalis will help you succsed in 1. helping your team with the slow 2. more surviablity in lane with the spell vamp and in teamfights with the sv 3. it allows you to net those early kill and deine early deaths
