Hello! This is oVENOMo's build for Swain.
first i start with boots, and health pots, and take solo, or with a lane partner, it doesnt matter.
Use decripify for first gank, and use ignite to try and take the first blood.
When you can, back and buy you're Sorc boots, which will help you deal more damage with your ulti making you very tanky without any items.
Your Spirit Visage will help your ulti, plus your spells, because of its CD reduction, and its 20% bonus on heals.
The Rod of Ages will help you get a bit tankier, and give you that little boost in mana which will give you more AP while using your Archangels.
Archangels is for the AP to make your spells stronger, which will give you more life back.
Zhonyas! Now for the funnest part of the game, you should have your ulti max, or at lvl 2 depending on how fed you get, and if you get fed enough you will be stronger before the rest. But!!! If you cast your ulti, and your a little bit low on hp, and there is a champ trying to kill you, and a bunch of creeps, use your spells against them, put ignite on them, then turn on ulti, then use zhonyas. it will keep channeling your ulti, and will keep giving you hp back and while your in your invulnerable state, your spell you casted will be dealing damage to them.
So, the order for using your spells is.
W->E->Q->R
The reason why you use torment before Decripify is because it increases the damage delt to the target, which will make your decripify, plus ulti does even more damage.
If you want to change the item build, you can get another item, other than the 2nd arch, but with this, you will have awesome scores, so.Have fun! and Good Luck! Please leave comments and rate this build!
