Ravenous: Swain can periodically target a nearby immobilized enemy champion to rip out a Soul Fragment from them, dealing 20-105 (+30% of ability power) magic damage and pulling them 290-units towards him before a 0.25-second cast time (depending on level). If the target would be brought past Swain, they are instead knocked back the excess distance.

Enemy champions also leave behind a Soul Fragment for 16 seconds upon death, which can be harvested after 1 second if Swain is near them.

Flock: Enemy champion takedowns leave a Soul Fragment behind for 16 seconds. Swain restores 4 / 5.5 / 7% of his maximum health whenever he collects a Soul Fragment, while also permanently increasing his maximum health by 5.

Swain unleashes five bolts of eldritch power in the target direction, dealing 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 / 135 (+40% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies in a cone. Enemies can be hit by multiple bolts, taking 15 / 20 / 25 / 30 / 35% bonus magic damage.

Swain summons a demonic eye at the target area that reveals it for 2 seconds before exploding, dealing 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 (+70% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies hit, halved against non-champions, and slowing them by 25 / 35 / 45 / 55 / 65% for 2.5 seconds.

Enemy champions are revealed for 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 seconds and each grant Swain a Soul Fragment.

Swain launches a demonic wave in the target direction, dealing 35 / 70 / 105 / 140 / 175 (+25% of ability power) magic damage to enemies it passes through.

Upon reaching its maximum distance, the wave returns to Swain, detonating at the first enemy hit, dealing 35 / 45 / 55 / 65 / 75 (+25% of ability power) magic damage to all nearby enemies and rooting them for 1.5 seconds.

Swain frees the demon within for 12 seconds, gaining 125 / 200 / 275 (+5 per Soul Fragment) bonus health.

While Demonic Ascension is active, Swain drains the 3 enemies closest to him, prioritizing champions, dealing 35 / 50 / 65 (+14.167% of ability power) magic damage to them each second, up to a potential 420 / 600 / 780 (+170% of ability power) damage per enemy. He also restores 20 / 35 / 50 (+16% of ability power) health per second for each enemy hit, reduced by 90% against minions and monsters.

Swain can end the effects of Demonic Ascension early to cast Demonflare, and automatically does so at the end of its duration.

Demonflare: Swain unleashes a nova of soulfire, dealing a minimum of 100 / 150 / 200 (+50% of ability power) magic damage to all nearby enemies, plus 75% of the health Swain drained during Demonic Ascension. Demonflare's damage is capped at 200 / 300 / 400 (+100% of ability power).

Demonflare is automatically cast at the end of the Demonic Ascension duration, which can be ended early by recasting the ability.
