Introduction

Swain is a tanky mage with an interesting skill set. (He also walking with a limp)Swain has theability to burst down a single target while dealing area of effect damage which give him high sustain. I prefer to build Swain tanky because torment allows him to deal massive damage with a lower ability power. I focus on health and defense so he is able to get in the middle of the enemy team and deal massive damage.

Summary

Hybrid Swain
Hybrid Swain is very fun to play. The idea is with torment the basic attacks also do an additional 20% magic damage. For Hybrid swain i do not build as tanky becaue the life steal gives even more sustain. Also the hybrid portion of my build is hextch GunBlade and Rageblade which takes up two build spots so building tanky is harder. You want to activate E, Q, W, then (Guneblade Active) all while you auto attack and your ultimate is on. All this damage over time from all these different sources will destroy a single target. The slow from hextech gunblade and Q also help keep the enemy in your range.

Items

This is just a general build for hybrid swain but i believe a person should always adjust their build depending on the enemy team.

Force of Nature, Sunfire Cape, and Rylai's Crystal Sceptor are also very good on Swain.

Boots always depend on the enemy.
Sorcerer boots is the standard choice
Tenacity boots if enemy has high CCs.
and Tabi if enemy has high AD Damage.
