Helping Me

Pros/Cons

Pros
Great mid champion
utli gives health back
most of 1v1 fights swain would win
has a rooting power...great for team fights and for the odd 1 that gets away
great Damage Over Time spell what is good for harrasing


Cons
starts off slow till he has his torment maxed out
can be focused 1st but with the health items you should be fine
staying in utli too long drains mana like crazy


Guide Top

Items

once you get archangel staff don't even look at your mana bar as it will hardly ever go down.

when you get Spirit Visage you will feel like a true swain as your ulti will pretty much make you god.


Guide Top

Runes

Mana regen Seals are good to help you start off spamming til you get archangel staff then you can spam without them but thay still help. Magic pen Marks...makes you do more damage. AP per level Glyphs helps for more damage ofc, you could get AP Glyphs but i like the little extra late game.


Guide Top

Skills

Torment must be maxed at 9 its really easy to harras with next level up Nevermove or Decrepify but Nevermove is easyer to farm minons to push in lane more.


Guide Top

Masteries

Normal Masteries for any AP champions this is the best for most AP casters. if you want you can just go down the Blue tree if you want to be a tank as swain can tank late game with his ulti
