This build gives you both great damage and great survivability. With Swain you can farm forever with ur passive and your ult. If you find yourself low on health wait till theres a full wave of enemy minions and then just toggle your ult for a few seconds this is usually sufficient in healing you back to full. My combo is I lead with Nevermore then hit Torment before it snaps shut and immediately toggle my ult and decrepify. Right after you hit torment if you have Deathfire grasp you should use it immediately this makes your torment hit super hard. I usually try to take mid as Swain is a great 1v1 champion but he is a good laner as well so don't be afraid to go in the lane as well. One thing I noticed is that Golem is a huge buff for Swain more so than other champions cos it allows him to channel his ult for long periods of time. Endgame with this full set you will be heavy nuker who is hard to kill with all the spell vamp and escape mechanisms you have.
