The unstopable killing machine

hi, im mekathron, lvl30, russia, platinium 3 atm.

this a guide for swain, if you want to play if for S4 and wish to had him as an option for VERY competitive plays.
This guide was based in all the other guides and only world championship experience atm with swain.
(nukeduck) swain x ahri (faker)
From this experiences i tried to make something MORE STRONG.
the guide show how to creat the PERFECT synergy his kit: runes, mastery and itens. If all this you will become literally unstoppable.

the runes are designed to optimize the synergy of this building. Its not designed to skirmishes at early levels but to creat a consistent build mid game, that allow you to play our role.

Guide Top


they are designed for mid game and to give enphasis in synergy.
swain have a great synergy with spell vamp. if you are behind you may skyp will of the ancients. go for a rabadon first and them make spirit visage. and them get +20% from spell vamp. if you dont have the spell vamp rune so you get nothing.
Ap scaling is op in swain because he have 90% scaling ap + torment.
and mana regen solv his mana problems after the lane phase.

here is the combo:
spirit visage will improve or dangerous game, spell vamp and ulti self heal in 20%. if you set up this combo you will be a monster.
dangerous game+ spell vamp+ spirit visage+ your ulti

Skill Sequence

forget about try own enemy in lane with swain. this is why we dont have to much swain players overthere (but we have a lot of zigs, and he have skill shots too).
swain shines in team play-mid game- not in lanes.
max torment first and nevermore second. it will alow you to safe AND QUICK farm giving more undirect mobile, take out press in your lane ( enemy roaming less liked) and more chances to try skill shots ( harras and ganks).
