Introduction

This is my first build. Just wanted to share the good news on my awesome Swain playstyle. Why? Because I see too many baddies out there.


Guide Top

Pros/Cons

The way I play Swain, early on, AP is a little lacking, but I find it more important to have a better late game(and dominate mid game), and just chill out/farm minions until level 6 early on.


Guide Top

Items/Playstyle

It's very simple. Get a Meki so you can continuously spam your torment. Harass em up a bit. I like to return back to base after getting 350 gold (usually around lvl 2 or 3) buy boots, and teleport immediately back to my lane. On your second trip back, finish your Tears. Now you should be around level 6. Go start raping with your Raven Laz0r.

Your next item is Mejai's. This is vital. Of course you'd get it. After popping off a few kills, and your AP is getting up, go finish your Rod of Ages, then Arch Angels. By this point you should be 10-1. Game should be coming to an end.

If not, go buy Rabbadon's and if the game still continues, buy another Rab. You should break 1k AP and be dominating.

Skill Sequence

This is easy.

TOrment is the Dmg. Your little bird or whatever, does almost no damage. It's not even worth putting more than 1 point into because it's primary focus is to slow the target, so that you can pop off a nevermore or a torment (hopefully both if you have all your fingers).

I cast in this order.

Birdie then torment to harass.

Nevermore --> Raven Laz0r ----> Birdie ----> Torment 90% of the time this will kill.

Masteries.

Flash for obvious chasing reasons.

Teleport so that you can get back to your lanes quickly.

Summary

This is pretty basic ****. I mean, you get lots of HP/Mana and AP, so that you can outlive every **********er out there and just raven your way through the game. EZ.
