Greetings, fellow summoners! I am MukiiBA, a dedicated League of Legends player. As an enthusiast of strategic gameplay and champion mastery, I'm thrilled to share my knowledge and experiences with you.

Currently, I hold the rank of Diamond IV, constantly striving to climb the ladder and reach new heights. Among my achievements, I take pride in my prowess with the enigmatic champion, Swain. With dedication and practice, I have achieved the impressive rank of 150th globally on Swain and I peeked ranked 20th on the EUNE server.

In this guide, I aim to provide you with comprehensive insights, strategies, and tips to maximize your potential with Swain. Whether you're a seasoned Swain player looking to refine your skills or a curious summoner seeking to explore the ravens' magic for the first time, this guide is tailored to help you succeed.
In the ever-shifting landscape of League of Legends, champions rise and fall in popularity, strength, and relevance. Among them stands Swain, the Noxian Grand General, a character whose allure and strategic depth have persisted through the years. As we delve into the year 2024, the question arises: why would and should one play Swain in the current state of the game?

Firstly, Swain's versatility remains a key factor in his enduring appeal. Whether in the mid lane, top lane, support or even occasionally as an APC, Swain's kit offers a blend of crowd control, sustain, and burst damage that can adapt to various team compositions and playstyles. His ability to flex between roles makes him a valuable asset in both solo queue and flex environments, allowing players to explore different strategies and adapt to changing metas.

Swain's teamfighting prowess sets him apart as a formidable force on the battlefield. His ultimate ability, Demonic Ascension not only grants him significant survivability and damage but also provides valuable vision and crowd control during chaotic teamfights. Skilled Swain players can turn the tide of battle with well-timed engages and strategic positioning, making him a valuable asset in coordinated team play.
