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 land 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. Also make sure to take MR in your rune stat shards. Buying Wits End first here will also make your life a lot easier. ”

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. ”

Amberdragon says “Even as a support Swain can burst you, and his Root is brutal. Plus, he is hard to kill. Not a good matchup as you both excel in close combat and he has the upper hand.”

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”
Coldsong says “Swain is a mage, which means he is mostly spell based. I would recommend saving your W purely for when he goes in with an E, since it is fast and can be tricky to dodge. Try to NOT fight him in his R and go for an all in when it is down.”

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.”
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”
AhoyM8E says “Skill matchup, dodging his pull is all you really need to do to outplay him, I personally find him annoying in lane. ”
Simon Uchinora says “Swain has a huge gap of kill by hitting you with his E, has alot of damage by his Q, and a huge range with his W, pay attention on his E is a in and out skill, and only fight against him into his E cooldown.”

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

PlayCabex says “you can kill him easily after level 6, if you have enough damage then just fight, otherwise r him then q and go for e and w then run out of his ult with your phase rush”

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.”

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.”

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
Hullos says “ Strong cc sustain and poke. high CDs so good opportunity to go in once he missed stun. Post 6 you most likely lose the 1v1 unless he missed everything. Attempt to bait out ult and back off. Exhaust or TP can help here. ”
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.”

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.”

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.”

iZianni says “Fairly simple match up, dodging his combo is relatively simple since we can cast while moving. Our damage might not stick the best because of his itemization, but we'll usually have more impact early and snowball off that. Its the 25+ minute Swain that gets scary.”
Zianni's Challenger Syndra Guide by iZianni | Syndra Player
Aegox says “As long as you're not hit by his root, you should be fine. He doesn't do too much damage if he isn't fed so just dodge everything.”
