You guys ever tried Swain?
Lately I´ve been thinking of buying him, but I´m not entirely sure.
I want an AP bruiser, and I´m not into Vlad or Gragas.
I like Swain a lot, but I heard he´s been nerfed and he isn´t quite useful now
You guys have an oppinion?



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.

RE: You guys ever tried Swain?
I main Swain all the time. Hes a great champ with great damage over time stuff. All the nerf did was reduce his lanability after level 6 which (although it very much did) now allows you to target champions with your ult. It also increased the amount of healing when it hits a champion, so this was a part buff part nerf because now its a little easier to kill champions but harder to stay in a lane it ur being harassed. The whole point of Swain is to wait for the right moment to trap him with nevermore, the hit him with torment, and then move close to him and use your ult and decrepify. ALWAYS have ignite as it boosts torment's damage output and I always get first blood with my combo early game

RE: You guys ever tried Swain?
In all honesty, I think Swain lacks damage. Maybe it's just the damage over time spells making it look that way, but it's still very discouraging seeing his Torment do so little. Even Malzahar's spells don't look that weak.



I think I'll let you suffer for a while...

RE: You guys ever tried Swain?
I´m not looking for an AP carry or a nuker, I want some bulky AP. I don´t care if Swain lacks damage, as long as he can stay in the middle of a fight using his ult to survive
So I think I´m buying him

RE: You guys ever tried Swain?
Compared to the Gragas and Vlad, Swain isn't all that tanky either. He may have more survivability than the squishy mages, but only just a bit. You can even argue that Malzahar, or any mage with Rylai's, Rod of Ages, and maybe banshees is pretty tanky. Swain relies on those items for his tankiness as well. His ult just makes him a bit more tankier.

RE: You guys ever tried Swain?
I finally bought him, and he kinda dissapointed me Frown
I had the idea that whenever I pressed R I would be immortal till my mana ran out. However I like him a lot, and I´m building kinda tanky with Abyssal, RoA, Rylai´s, etc.
