Tips Against Swain in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

koog says “Aphelios is going to have a really bad time playing against pretty much any mage in the bot lane. He is very slow and easy to hit skillshots on. I would suggest buying tier 2 boots early to minimize the number of skillshots you get hit by. Try to play around your support and jungler. The mages are usually just as immobile as you are and should be pretty easy to CC.”

Chaeha says “One of the most volatile bot laners where if you take a single nevermove you simply die, he shoves you under turret and then repeatedly throws skill shots at you. Extremely unfun.”

Penguto says “He will root you then pull you towards him and do so much damage. Dont get caught or you will lose half your health by him alone, get cleanse if you are not confident enough to dodge his abilities.”
A_Drunk_Carry says “What a nuisance. His E range can hook you easily during trades. The W zones and slows if you get hit by it. His Q range is similar to your auto range, making for effective early trades. And forget trying to kill him once he ults and menaces your way. ”

Harambe Homie says “Swain is by far the worst matchup to go into as Miss Fortune. He out pokes you, out dmg's you in extended trades, has incredibly high sustain with his ultimate and high enough burst damage to one shot you if you aren't careful. In the current meta, this is Miss fortunes only high threat counter pick.”

Harambe Homie says “Swain bot currently is just busted into almost every lane. This is definitely one of the harder matchups to play against. His poke and constant harass can be extremely difficult to deal with at times.”

Gokinaf says “Swain can be scary if they feeded or if he get late game, but you can kite him, don't get closer if he didn't use hiw E”

nraxxr says “Swain sucks the fun out of your laning phase. He is very tough to play against since he can hook you through minions. Keep your distance and make sure to side step when he walks up for a hook. ”
LordTowelYT says “When he roots you and pulls you, that's something that isn't optimal for your current situation. A.K.A you die”
KoZee says “Swain isn't too difficult to deal with as Varus due to his slightly longer range than most. If he grabs you and pulls you in, then you will likely get bursted pretty hard, which can be difficult to deal with. However, you can deal significant damage to him, even in his ultimate. One thing that makes Swain support as strong as it is is because his ultimate makes him very tanky by giving him extra health and a bunch of healing, however blight does percent max health damage, which helps counter this. You also have your E to apply grievous wounds and lower that healing. He can be caught out very easily with your R due to your blight and E countering a lot of his kit, but you need to position correctly to avoid him grabbing you in lane, which is his best chance at winning.”

Tips Against Swain in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Fuzzmonkey says “Dodge his E and this match up is pretty easy early game, you might take some trades every now and then when you W in but other than that, be extremely aggressive early game. Always take ignite for this match up like you would against Vladimir. Level 6 would be a good time to have your ignite up so that he doesn't heal off minions when he uses his ultimate.”

eiensiei says “Can constantly harass him with E and even go for passive procs if I'm in a position to hit a Q as well - in that case it doesn't matter if he does his full combo, I'll still outdamage him. At 6, I'll stay out of his range and poke safely with E. After he gets RoA/Zhonya's he's unkillable and I'll only ever really Q+E him in fights, holding my R for squishier targets.”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Doran + 2 Pots or Corrupting for his post 6 sustain. Relatively easy to kill pre-6 and can't do much after that also if you finish Morello. Focus on getting an early kill on lane but beware of his CC spell and jungler followup (it is predictable/quite easy to dodge however). Focus on Roam if he becomes too tanky and get kills elsewhere. Don't use anything else than ignite because he doesn't really have any kill power on you especially pre 6.”

richardlized says “Swain’s E is pretty annoying, but he essentially only has 2 abilities against you in lane since his W is incredibly hard to hit and you should dodge it easily. Most swain players will chain W with E which is what the matchup comes down to - dodging E. He is a battle mage, but still very easy to one shot by someone like Zed. After you dodge his E, he is defenseless and you can WEQW and win the trade hard with AAs. After level 6, you can ult to dodge his E and combo him. ”
Yeager says “This will be a farm lane. You have to be careful of his E, as this is the only way he can get to you. Rush boots if you have trouble dodging it. The matchup is quite easy so just focus on farming for your first hex core!”
Yeager's Master Viktor Guide by Yeager | Viktor Player
Fuzzmonkey says “Dodge his E and you'll win this match up easily since his Q is short range and his only main ability that he does damage with. Constantly poke him and all in him with ignite so he doesn't heal when he goes into his ult form.”

LunarVortex says “His E is pretty easy to spellshield with how telegraphed it is. If he's close enough, he might try to Q you right before his E hits you to break your spellshield, be aware of that and time it well. In teamfights, zone him and prevent him from getting good value out of his ultimate with your Q and R.”

Avucado says “Play in front of your casters, if he e's it wont go through them. Start E because he has low range and zero mobility. Look for hooks and E's when you can. You do a lot of damage to him especially if you get ahead. If he uses R, just E away and wait it out. If he hits his E he will chunk you for a huge amount of damage and if he's ahead he can easily kill you. Take mercs if theres another ap champ and hexdrinker if he gets too fed.”

Ambitieux says “Swain isn't too much of an issue. Watch out for his e's and you should mostly win the lane. He is a slower champion then most and has no real mobility so Ahri is a natural predator against him. You can easily take trades pre 6 or after 6. This is mostly just a standard matchup of skill were you push him in. Deny him cs and try to look around the map for pressure. ”

Coldsong says “Swain's E and Q can be annoying, but other than that he is pretty easy to lane against. Just save your combo for when his ult is on CD, as it makes him pretty tanky. Also, if he hits his E and goes to pull you, throw out your W so that he has to take 2 hits for free if he wants to get it off.”
