Welcome to my swain offtank guide by Zookey
This guide will show you how to play swain as a off tank with his survivability and more focusing on helping other members in team to successfully win everyteam fight.
Even tho swain is a good mid char i prefer that hes played on a lane with a good stuner for max effectivness.
Swain is also good for a solo lane if u have a jungler in your team and he can preform very successfull ganks.
Lets get started
Cleanse is a must spell for swain because if he gets stuned in a teamfight your carrys wont be safe and that is your most important role in a team fight.
Ignite is also a good spell for swain because of swains torrment ability it gains 20% more dmg and that is quite good considering ignite does true dmg .
Others Summoner spell combo is maybe also good but this is how i play swain and i find it most effective in teamfights
For runes i take
Standard MAGIC PENETRATION red runes
MANA REGEN per lvl yellow runes cos the item build isnt that mutch mana regen based and u need some mana regen to start with as a mage.
MAGIC RESIST per lvl blue runes because on mid and end game every blue buff should be your and you will be cd reduce capped so i take magic resist for more protection from magic dmg
