What is a Swain?
-Easy to pick up
-Low ban rate
-Monster in Low Elo
-Nobody knows how to play against him
-Juicy sustain AND Damage
-CSing with him is disgustingly difficult under tower
-Kit can be easily telegraphed
A very basic combo. Q slows and almost guarantees a W, E amplifies damage and the ult and ignite finish them off.
Max damage. E in the beginning amplifies all damage done afterwards.
Harass combo in lane.
When harassing, always try to weave in AA to increase damage output with the E.
Team fighting with Swain is a breeze. As an off-tank sustain mage, you are essentially an atomic bomb waiting to be unleashed. Try to drop all the abilities on the carries and go ham. Position yourself closest to the enemy carries to guide your ravens when using R. When low, simply pop Zhonya's and you'll continue to heal when untargetable. Simply position yourself behind the enemy back line and when low, pop the hourglass. Only problem with Swain in teamfights is that he will lose mana fast.
