Introduction to the Raven.

Hello guys welcome on this Swain guide.
Throughout the guide, I'll refer to MIDLANE SWAIN and TOPLANE SWAIN so if you don't want to feel lost, check both guides by pressing the icons at the top of the build. Swain is very few banned (0,24%) and played (2,81%) but has one of the best winrates in both lanes he is played. (about 52%, which places him in 8th best winrate in mid and top.) For the small story, I had a terrible Swain-ennemy experience years ago that made me bann him in half of the games I played (causing flames of course) I was like traumatised. So I decided to learn how to play it and now I can say it's one of my mains. With about 20 games played this season with Swain, I won 2 out of 3. (67% winrate, average KDA 3,7)
More details about Swain and I these days

This is the reason why I'm making this guide to help you get free wins. I tried to keep it clear and simple and put spoilers so that you choose yourself which chapters interest you most. Goodluck reading.

To conclude this guide, I'd say Swain is easier than we think and you don't need as much practise to master it than you would with a LeBlanc for example. Picking it in ranked will give you a free-win if you follow this guide correctly. Hope I helped a lot of you and if I did, don't hesitate leaving a comment or toping-up the guide. Thanks guys and have a nice game.
