Summary

Hello everyone!

I apologise for not saying much about Swain but there are some very interesting and extensive notes on other popular builds about the way you should play him that are absolutely correct so i'll not go into detail.

A good player will change items acording to the situation so you dont need to buy exactly the same items every game. But since it covers everything I want in Swain, usually, depending on the enemies, I just pick one build and go.

If you like the idea of playing Swain focused on AP but with some survivability try one of these builds in terms of items, runes and masteries (exactly like it is here). They have been personalised a lot after some hundreds of games but I insist you try them out and leave a feedback.

You will notice I have 4 Builds here, the first is for 3v3, the second is for 5v5. The 3rd and 4th are also for 5v5 but are alternative builds I've been testing after the latest patch to compensate for some recent "changes" to the ulti and spellvamp system. If you are not going well in game discard the mejai's in the 2nd and 4th build.

I would advise ppl who are starting into Swain to go for the 3rd build here.


If you enjoy it, please leave a comment. Have fun!
