League of Legends (LoL) Question: Is new Swain good?

    Is new Swain good?

    I've played a bit of new Swain on the PBE with mixed results, while I'm not sure what to build on him yet I'm leaning towards a AP/Health type build (like old swain). While Swain is fun he doesn't seem to be doing the damage I feel like he should, is it just me or is new Swain kind of weak?

    New Swain definitely seems strong when you know how to play him and what to build. If you go to YouTube and watch SoloRenektonOnly play him on PBE you'll see what he does and be able to learn kind of how to build and how to combo.

    I had seen that same video, and thought about recommending it... but without personal experience with New Swain (I don't play on the PBE), I didn't feel like I was quite answering the question.

    I tried the new Swain in every role. He is very fun to play, and he can be strong when you know how to play him. He plays like a master tactician. You sit back at a distance and wait for them to come towards you. When you can guarantee a kill or gank, then I would go in.

    Is he like old Swain?
    Reworked Swain is similar yet different to old swain. He gains more mana back than ever before, his Nevermove is a skillshot now rather than AOE, and his ultimate now nukes for damage. Unfortunately, his ultimate is timed and not toggled, yet it can change a team fight like the old one.

    What roles to play him:
    I recommend top and mid as the two places to play him. Never do jungle. That hurt to play. ADC and support are iffy, and there are better options.

    Id say he has ok sustained damage(q damage is actually low than normal), good sustain, very good burst on given intervals(his r burst combine it with q and w) an actually good cc(his e is actually easy to land though his w is something else), and still have bad mobility.
