Swain Is the Newest Champion so far, He brings forth a deadly arsenal of spells.

Gameplay

Early Game
You wanna start building your mana pool for your ultimate, so you wanna grab your saphire crystal and a Health pot. Your gonna want to take mid for the most effectiveness. Just mind your own buisness and dont bother anyone untill you reach level 3. Your gonna want to put nevermore on them and then run straight towards them. Put torment, decrepify, and ignite onthem. This should be easy for you. Before you reach level 6 your gonna want to recall to get tear of godess for a bigger mana pool wait till you manage to to kill them to recall.

Mid Game
After reaching level 6 your gonna want to keep on doing the same thing except that they will belive that they have a chance to kill you, You use your ultimate but only use it when its necessary because it empties your mana pool really really fast. Use your ult when your low on health and wanna regain some of it. You can also use it to farm minions.

Late game
In group fights you must nevermove melee champions and use all of your button combinations to finish off atleast 1 person. After that turn on your ultimate and keep running around waiting for you cooldowns to come back, and unleash all of them again. If your running away pop ghost and your ultimate this will keep you alive and it will definatley stop them from chasing you. Your better at focusing on 1 guy and killing him for sure than focusing on multiple people.

Items
[*] An Archangel staff for the giant mana pool which allows more time for your ultimate.
[*] Sorcerers shoes for magic penetration and enhanced speed movement.
[*] Mejais soulstealer for increased ability power. Sice you have great survivability youll get 20 stacks in no time.
[*] Rylais crystal septer for the ability power and the slow. It goes with good combination with your ultimate, People chasing you will get slowed by your Ravens.
[*] Zhonyas ring will skyrocket your ability power and make your ult into an incredible protective shield.
[*] The last Item is tricky if they have magic resist get Void Staff
[*] If they have alot of AP champions get Abyssal Scepter

Runes
Im not a fanatic of Runes but I go for Ability power because Magic penetration doesent help against people without magic resistance, But ability power help you kill anything.


Tips and Hints
[*] Use ignite and torment they do some serious damage.
[*] When running away put nevermove right behind you. It will stop whoever is chasing you.
[*] When Ganking use nevermore first, then torment, ignite, and then Decrepify. It will stop them from leaving.
[*] DO NOT Use ghost to catch up to people only use it as an escape mechanism.
[*] If your ganking a lane with 2 people if they have lower levels than you and are sort of weak you can still take them with your ult just make sure you have enough mana.
