Wow, that was a good argument. Considered starting a debate show yet?

Anyway, I know this is theory craft, but I'd really like if you were a little bit open minded when people came with new ideas.

It's too expensive, a Hextech Revolver early game after boots + 3hp goes better than wasting gold on cutlass (simply for AP scaling and jungler's giving you blue so you can regen off ult and keep mana).

I just went a normal game using this technique against Mordekaiser. First we were pretty equal, lowering each other's health considerably. During level 6, I had almost full hp again while Morde was down at 20%. I managed to get off a W at him, popped my ulti and autoattacked him while spamming skills. He fell rather quickly.

After I got my Bilgewater Cutlass, I dominated him with 6-0 before their mid Kassadin came and got one kill on me, while I managed to pull off a 7th kill on Mordekaiser in the process.

It actually deals considerable amount of damage, and nobody thinks that after your slowing birds, you have your Cutlass slow as well. That will take most people by surprise.

The low range on the cutlass is not much of a problem, since your ulti requires you to be close to them anyway.

If they aren't expecting the slow from an item they can clearly see you've got, they deserve to get killed by it.

Seriously, WotA is a better pick-up. It's cheaper and all of it scales with the abilities you've got, rather than wasting half of it on what is essentially an unused stat on Swain.

Also, pics/video or it didn't happen.

Sure, I'm downloading LolReplay right now, and I'll continue to try it out. You'll see results soon :)

Well Swain's skills will amplify the damage of the activated ability.

So all things considered, you'll have a sick nasty burst combo when your damage amplifying DoT is applied and you use your full combo with ignite.

20% Increased damage on the cutlass active only leads to 180 damage, before MR, and you have to be level 9 minimum.

MR is not a problem if you don't got cutlass you mean?

You don't want to buy cutlass first, revolver first, cutlass next, gunblade after.

I can't see it ever being better than wota, particularly bearing in mind wota is much cheaper.
