...Hi I'm SirEagleEye TR server player, sorry for my poor English. I'm here to post my experiences, combos and item building on Swain.

I wanted to make a guide for Swain, it seems there are no serious guides yet or better say versatile; Swain is changed and; mostly similar to Vladimir's rework logic, now he has some serious burst in his kit as wells, and its just like being up from a dream, his new style is just like what it's supposed to be after many years.

Instead of a freak general who claims to be a tactician now, we have a soul-reader dark mage who had captured a demon named Beatrice, controls/uses both his enemies and allies to his in the dark desires. He can potentially absorb some serious HP now without being too irrelevant to his runes/build like before (the rework), now he has his own combo synergy.
So I confess, this rework has changed my thoughts about him, the Grand General of Noxus (aka the Master Tactician) became playable for serious matches for those who were not one trick pony Swain. It's a good change visually indeed, and his armored coat...

That's a sharp armored coat Swain, careful, you could puncture whole of an empire-class Fire Nation battleship, leaving thousands to drown at sea. Because it's so sharp.

So someone really had to tell that he is now stronger than ever. That's why I'm here ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to my build/guide of Swain.
