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

Arzun says “His healing is absurd and his laning phase is tough, avoid his e at all costs if you can avoid losing early you might have a chance in late game”

Uberizm says “Havent played into new swain but it used to be easy pre 6 and kinda hard after cuz hes so tanky so idk its probably the same since he can just infinitely sit on your shroud now”
Uberizm's Psychotic Akali Guide by Uberizm | Akali Player
Zoose says “His main threat is his E, which is a long range root but its quite slow and easy to dodge. His main damage comes from Q spam, but its low range so stay back and Q poke. W is also easy to dodge unless he hits his E. At 6, always save your W to flip him away when he ults. Wait until it times out before getting close.”
CaptainBattlaxe says “Was even, not sure with recent changes. Ignite to counter his healing, poke a lot. If you time orange well you can avoid the pull.”

Azurio says “Avoid his E with yours at all cost. Trade him when use spells on wave. He is really hard to kill after level 6, try to farm and pressure him before to get mythic fast and play with your jungle.”

ddieguito_es says “He's dangerous, specially if you get in a long fight with him. You can struggle a bit due to his E in the early game. Shouldn't be a problem afterwards, tho, except if he ends up being massively tanky. BE CAREFUL PRE-6. He doesnt have any mobility to dodge your CC and you outdamage him + R should be enough to finish him. Not that hard but be aware of his root/pull.”
Bunny Kata says “Right now he is in the "tiny" matchup, but after next buffs it's gonna be the strongest champ in the entire game, better than Ahri herself. Good luck mates. Take whatever you want, you lose.”

NathanPyke says “In the laning phase he's immobile without his E can be killed easily but be mindful of his cooldowns”

LuckyTigerRAW says “You can only fight him before lvl 6, and even then be careful about him. I normally just play safe and target his adc.”

Tqnshi says “His E will root you even when you think it won't. On top of that he hurts when he's fed and can heal himself during ult :)”

Rissen says “Swain can lock you down while bursting you at the same time. Try to buy MR items such as Solari, Force of Nature, or Mikael's.”
S12 Rakan Guide! by Rissen | Rakan Player
Demonsedge90 says “Swain is just a lane bully support who will make things hard for you. Trying to get farm for your bot lane will be hard since he can use e and pull you towards him and his carry. That can help you in some cases because then you stun him back or root him, but if you are pulled and have no backup then you might be in trouble. Play the lane cautiously versus Swain.”

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

DimitriLSD123 says “why is he playing top? you beat him all game try to fight with turrets ”
Buzz Buzz by DimitriLSD123 | Heimerdinger Player
CosmicTurtle88 says “Maybe the ""easiest"" ranged champion to play against since he lacks strong disengage. If he ever misses his root he dies, and if he's pushed up you can Ghost on him for an easy kill. He's also fodder for your jungler, you can easily make him go 0/10 and spam dive him together. Only danger is if he takes Conqueror and full stacks it and ults you, he'll heal a LOT. ”
Farmer Cleetus says “If he's well fed he's going to be an major threat to you.”

TENTAKILL ILLAOY says “Крайне противный, тактика как с Рамблом, но только Свейн, не занерфлен и ульт его уже, не за доджишь. Доджите его E.”
Guide to ILLAOI patch 12.11 by TENTAKILL ILLAOY | Illaoi Player
Taiquyorah says “Il a plus de range que vous, vous pouvez esquiver son E. Il n'est pas très tanky donc dès que vous avec quelques items, vous devriez être capable de le tuer plutôt facilement. Privilégier le suff trinité car il pas mal de dégâts. L'anti-heal est intéressant à prendre rapidement.”
BigDaddyPantheon says “Swain is one of the most annoying champs to play against as Panth. He just out damages you in every way. As long as you play safe and farm you should be fine. Just be careful with your Q since it won't do much damage to the wave.”
Full AP Pantheon by BigDaddyPantheon | Pantheon Player
Yiphen says “EXPERIMENTAL: Go Wit's End instead of your Mythic against him. Go Doran's Shield. When he E's you, you can AA him and Q away when the claw comes back to grab you. If the Swain is dumb he'll waste all his mana trying to hit you, which makes ganks pretty easy. Go Q into E, you out-trade him. Bait out his Ult in teamfights before you Ult, because he can Zhonya's in your Ult which gets your team low while keeping him healthy. Get Executioner's Calling. Freeze wave in front of tower. Do not dance.”
WildSamu says “DShield + Red Pot. Look to dodge his E and W, if you can get on top of him you win trades pretty easily. When he ults dont fight him unless you have grevious wounds or think you can kill him, otherwise just disengage.”
