Chapter 1

Dr. Swain - Birdman


Hello everyone and welcome to my Dps build for Swain(The 3v3 God), which makes him an extremely strong pick in the Twisted Treeline, he's also a very strong mid character in Summoner's Rift.
The reason for Swain being so strong, is that his attacks are all improved by abillity power. And Swain is one of the best kite character in my opinion

Explanation about the items.
Runes.
Early Game.
Mid Game.
Late Game.
Explenation Spells.
Afterword.



Runes:

Magic Penetration Marks, they are primary's in here so that's a great bonus.
Ability Power per level Glyphs, this will give you some sweet Abillity Power.
And also Abillity Power Seals and Quintessence.




Explanation about the items:

(Dont buy a doran's it's useless) At start u buy a Health Potion and an Amplifying Tome for the First blood and starter for Mejai's. If you got mejai's u will regain some extra abillity power and if you reach 20 stacks u get regain a big cooldown reduction of 15%. Than i go for the Sorcerer's shoes (For the magic penetration ofcourse). The Rod of Ages is for life and mana couse Swain is Squezy if you don't have it yet. after the Rod of Ages. Rabadon's Deathcap is for 155 abillity power and the unique passive that gives a 30% improvement of you abillity power. The Archangel's Staff gives a big boost of mana, Rylai's Crystal Scepter is very usefull on Swain since he is called the God of DoTs (Damage over Times spells) that slows the target and easier to come near the enemie target for your R and Q abillity.



Early Game:

Early game grab a Amplifying Tome and a health potion and head to the Firstblood spot. Learn your Nevermove ability first so enemies can't escape. At level 2 you can start harress enemies, so you you can finish them off simply. If you are lvl 3 and you have made some kills and farmed some minions you could buy my mejai's and Boots of Speed. After that u can start ganking so you will regrain some kills and buy your Sorcecer's Shoes.



Mid Game:

If you reach lvl 6 and you have learned your ult, u can start killing by yourself my combination on Swain is W(nevermove so he can't move :D)E(Torment overtime dmg) R-Q (your Ravenous Flock and Decrepify are both for close combat) it's a instant kill. and when u have your Rod of Ages you can solo all the 3 enemies of there team, believe me some people say he can't win a battle against more than 1 enemie but I can convince you he can solo them whit some mejai's stacks and Rod of Ages. And u can start buying parts of Rabadon's Deathcap.



Late Game:

AT late game when ure fully builded u are invulnerable to all enemies in 3vs3 and u got a nice 572 abillity power. u can also use this build in 5v5 ure strong but not a god.



Explenation Spells:

Ghost for chasing or escaping enemie champions.
And Clarity is for mana problems.




Afterword: I hope you enjoy this build for questions u can comment or ask in game. (in game name = pridereaper)
