Not Updated For Current Season
Playing as Swain, you must remember - YOU ARE SQUISHY! - You shouldn't harras too hard if you are not seeing all enemies!
Your position is MID or 2v2 lane, never go 2v1 - you are NOT carry!
Always focus on most dangerous champions! Annie, Olaf, Miss Fortune - those are your targets!
GOLEM IS IMPORTANT!!!!
1* If you have problem with farming, I suggest you buying Kage's Lucky Pick first when building Deathfire Grasp.
2* I suggest you buying catalyst first when building Rod of Ages
3* Spirit Visage is as important item as Abbysal Scepter is! You can switch purchase order.
4* After having listed items, sell ring and buy Zhonya's Ring.
Your combo for solo lane is W(stun) -> Q(slow) -> E(dot) (and Ignite if target is low hp) everytime cd is ready. It usually takes 3 rounds to take out for example Ashe, Ezreal or Twitch. It took me 5 rounds to kill mordekaiser.
Your combo in teamfights is W(stun) -> E(dot) -> Deathfire Grasp!!!(You cause +50%hp damage) -> Q(slow) -> Ignite. Most targets are already dead before casting ignite.
This build is checked and used by me since Swain is out. I am winning almost every match.
