SO I feel like Swain is the type of champ that takes a fairly decent amount of skill to use successfully. He's slow, his only cc move has a long CD, his other skills have to be used together to cause any real damage in the early game (his rotation) and he has no way to truly farm except through last hitting.

My other main champs are Morgana, Nasus, Maokai and Olaf and each of them have a pretty easy time of farming in the early to mid game. It's not hard for me to lay down an Aoe and eat up gold. But with Swain I'm having a hard time dealing with his frailty early against another champs, while also farming.

Maybe I'm just a bad player or Swain isn't my type. But for the others who know Swain in and out, could I have some help in how to properly farm gold with him.

EDIT: Also, sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum.

Early game, most champions should only be last-hitting with autoattacks, except for those like Nasus, Veigar, Karthus, Gangplank and Annie who have last-hitting abilities.
When you need to farm a big minion wave mid game, or you need to push quickly, you can just switch on your ult with swain to kill minions quickly. You COULD use your W as well, but it's usually better to reserve that for a snare on an enemy champion.

Side note: Blue buff is your friend. If you have blue, you can have your ult on a lot of the time for fighting, farming and healing.
Thanks to Jovy for the sig!

You, Sir, are totally right.

Catalyst should be pretty core on him. It helps quite a bit with his frailty.
