So... with the new ip reduction i started getting that itch to buy a new champ


i was thinking galio because of well.... he pretty muchs pwns any ap carry that trys to take him on in mid
but a lot of people say swain is a "boss" in lane



i've seen him in the field a couple of times but.... honestly he just seems to have advantage vs melee and short ranged champs

plus i also think galio wouldnt sweat with him


your opinions?

Galio is amazing against any champion with DoT, as his shield can negate a lot of the damage while also healing him. Combined with blue buff or a chalice, he can easily shrug off damage and trade. His ult is also game changing, but easily disrupted.

Swain's ult just costs so much mana :/ Other than his awkward attack range of 480 ( At least I'm pretty sure that's what it is ), he's pretty strong. I'm pretty sure a lot of AP mids beat him though, but then again I don't own Swain.

Much love to The Nameless Bard for this sexy picture<3

Galio is closer to the tank side.
Swain is closer to the carry side.

Whichever you choose is your decision. I think both are quite similar but they do different roles.

Galio. Go for it.

Swain is kind of selfish.

Swain is sustained DPS magic style.

Galio is Magic damage with a taunt on his ult.

They are in no way similar just pick what you like the most style wise.

EDIT: Before Duff says it, I like apples but oranges are good too.


Thank you to jhoijhoi for the sig, and all the dividers in the guide.
