Hello,
this is my first guide on Mobafire. This guide is about Swain, the Master of Tactician.
Swain is a caster with damage over time and no burst damage, so its needs some time to kill an enemy. You need to be able to stay in range to your opponents. So you need additional Health and a Health Regeneration: HP Reg, Life Leech, Spell Vamp or your ULTI. His Ulti is a DoT, which attacks 3 enemies in range and heals you equal to half of the damage you deal to you opponents (good for team-fights). Be Carefully, Ignite or some Champion Skills reduce(s) your selfheal. It's critical to fight with halt survivability.


Summoner Abilities:

: Additional DoT and Finisher
: If you have Mana Problems in early/mid game.
: To initiate or to escape
: The same...


Masteries:


Offense - Cooldown Reduction and Magic Penetration
Defense - Magical Resistance and Physical Resistance
Utility - Mana Regen, additional Experience and Movement Speed (He is old but not slow :) )

Skill Sequence:


1.2.3.4.

Runes:


What you want: Mana Regen, AP, Magic Pen, Health, Movement Speed...

Core Items:


First graband a.
Then go back to buy your boots or aBuy annext, because you need the Mana Regen and the Ability Power.
Now, you have Mana, Mana Regen, Ability Power, so what do you need now?
Of course health and more AP. Grab.
Last but not least...Then continue with we optional items.

Optional Items:

- Spellvamp i[s useful in combination with your ultimate.
- more Mana and Ability Power.
- Health, Armor and the passive AoE-Damage (in combination with your Ulti) [crazy but useful:) ]


Combos:


Nevermove, Torment, (Ravenous Flock), Decrepify, (Ignite)

Use your Ulti and Ignite if you have them ready or want to use them. It's possible to get kills without them.

How To Play Swain:


Don't try to get the mid lane. It's better to go with a mate, because he benefits of your cage.
Play offensive and try to initiate with your Nevermove. Then wait for your Teammate to react and continue with Torment and Decrepify. If you are Lvl 6 you can use your Ulti in every fight and to heal yourself by killing minions.
In Teamfights, try to combine AoE-Effects of your mates or enemies with your Nevermove and your Ulti.
Ofensive but not too offensive...
Friends On Laning:
Champions with Slow, Stun, Silence & Stealth
Beware of:
All Champions who are able to "dodge" your DoT's


Excuse my bad english :)
& thanks for reading
