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

Atemporal says “REWORK??? ANTES = Este confronto é incrivelmente fácil. A única maneira de Swain vencer é se você errar e levar muito dano cedo. Se você for atingido pelo E de Swain, levará muito dano porque ele o puxa e o ataca automaticamente até a morte. . O nível 1 seja realmente cuidadoso. Eu gosto de começar E vs Swain, então sempre que ele usa E, eu pulo para frente/para os lados para evitá-lo e então eu pulo nele para uma troca rápida. O CD E de Swain é de 10 segundos e seu E é de 9, então você pode fazer isso toda vez que ele usar E. Swain tem que usar E para cutucar você. Sempre que ele usar, pule nele para uma troca rápida. Se ele nunca usar E, você ainda pode ir até ele, mas certifique-se de posicionar de forma que o E dele atinja os lacaios atrás de você, e não você. Você vence esta pista no início do jogo e supera a escala ele também. Jogue super agressivo no início, ele não tem mobilidade, então W está livre para pousar. Após o nível 6 vale super a pena trocar ults com ele. Se ele ultar e você sabe que não pode matá-lo, ulte imediatamente. Seu R dura 12 segundos, então espere e perma lute com ele quando estiver em cooldown. Quando você tem 2 itens você já o destrói, e em 3 itens acabou para ele. Use a velocidade de movimento passiva para evitar o E sempre que entrar e dance ao redor dele para evitar todas as suas habilidades. Você toma acenda para que você ainda tenha potencial de matar, mesmo que ele use ults.”

pamiclo says “i dont feel like he is threat. dodge skills. when he use ult, one shot him or go away until end.”
IamBishop says “Avoid giving him stacks off his e and w. If he walks up too close before level 6 take the trade, he has like no tools to kite (if he doesn't take phase rush). Really good ult target, takes pressure off your team and stops him from being primary dps. ”
Simelodeon says “I: Liandry/Everfrost R: Standard/Phaserush S: Ghost Poke ihn early Die Lane wird dadurch bestimmt ob du seine E dodgen kannst. Getroffen zu werden ist meistens ein Death Sentence also bleib auf Range und spiel mit E Range”

Lucid Walking says “You both heal like maniacs. He's probably gonna take antiheal though, so in the lategame he'll outscale you. Early game is safe because you both keep healing through poking.”

RuchaczSzmat69 says “You can easily kite him, he has no mobility so he is a piece of meat that you can poke with both barrels and Q. If you wont dodge his E, W asap and run away from his W, it has long cast time so you should be okay. His ult is very powerfull, but you can just passive auto him if he uses it, and kite him with barrels and bonus movement speed so it turns off after a while.”
xblademojo says “You must dodge Swain E in order to win trades with him. Starting from Level 6 he becomes quite unkillable without Ignite or Oblivion Orb.”

DixonTheGuideMaker says “Swain’s early game is rather weak. If you’re playing as an early game champion, try to get an early advantage to reduce his scaling. His Root Nevermove(E) will only trigger on the first enemies he hits on its return. Stand near your Caster Minions and walk forwards when he throws it out so the minions get CC’d and not you. At level 6, his kill pressure and survivability increases. Unless you have the advantage, disengage as soon as he activates his Ultimate Demonic Ascension(R).”

Adamonias says “Swain buffs next patch so thiks will need to be updated; You counter swain , never stand IN your wave and just watch for his E when charging Q. He is a battle mage, So if you're in range of Q or R you are missplaying and will probally die. Otherwise go ham, his waveclear sucks and you out shove/outpoke hiim.”

DynHoyw says “Swain's poke & pull is sometimes a bit too much, and he can synergize well with the enemy AD Carry.”

OakuMarai says “Edgar Allan Painintheass. Guardian with celerity. His E can't root you if it blows up on your minions first. CC his ADC if one of you gets rooted. Stay away from him after 6 if he ults.”

NotAragami says “He's also a close range mage like you, you can outtrade him though. Make sure you don't get hit by the returning E or you either die or lose your Flash. When he turns ult on, stun him, get out of his ult radius, stack your passive, repeat. ”

LordZaneLP says “dodge his E and you are fine, dont dodge it and you are dead. You can try to run on him with glacial and hit your stun, but after 6 i wouldnt recommend that.”

huirats says “Very annoying support. Manageable, but if you get hit with his root you're screwed. Otherwise, his abilites aren't too hard to avoid.”
OakuMarai says “only a problem if he gets fed from ADC diff. try not to w him into your ADC post 6, focus on his adc instead. pre-6 feel free to let him meet your ADC up close”

PykEugeo says “Dodge his e and if he grabs you, try not to suffer the whole full combo. Force him if you can get him to use his ultimate .. then grab him and punish him with yours e to stun him, get away from him to make him waste it. ”
DixonTheGuideMaker says “Swain is super squishy and immobile. Good times to trade with him are when he’s walked forward trying to harass. When laning, make sure you’re always stood far back but in front of your Caster Minions. This will make it impossible for him to land his Root Nevermove(E) and CC you. At level 6, his kill pressure and survivability increases. Unless you have the advantage, disengage as soon as he activates his Ultimate Demonic Ascension(R).”

AdventurousBoldJourney says “Dodge his E, hide right in front of caster minions, as he can only get 3 casters in a clump. After he uses E, all in him.”
Sett Guide (WIP) by AdventurousBoldJourney | Sett Player
Smudey says “Try to bait out his very slow claw and trade with him permanently if he wants to contest the wave. He loses all trades and isn't that good at splitpushing + his early game is kinda weak so you should definitely try to get an early lead.”
RuchaczSzmat69 says “You can easily kite him, he has no mobility so he is a piece of meat that you can poke with both barrels and Q.

His ult is very powerfull, but you can just passive auto him if he uses it, and kite him with barrels and bonus movement speed so it turns off after a while.”
ToxicCannon says “Any ranged mage with sustain will be difficult for you. Kiting will be almost impossible pre-6 and they will likely be able to poke you down. Consider taking Fleet runes + TP for these matchups. Champions like Swain, Ryze, and Vlad all fit this description”

kajinator says “Conqueror and Flash + Ignite are good into Swain due to his natural tankiness with his ult. You can usually bait out his ult and then re-engage but you should be able to kill him even in his ult in a level 6 all in with Ignite. Executioners Calling is a good buy.”

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

franksterzz says “Not usually a bot lane champion but the gameplay consists of dodging his E. If you get hit you will probably die. Play around the E cooldown and poke him when it's down. In a fight 2v2, try to kill the adc first because Swain's DPS is not that high without his ult and his tankiness is pretty high for a 'support'.”

UwUSoftGirl says “[Poke] I hate Swain. His (E) is annoying and on the way back gets a bigger hitbox than it looks. The good this is that it'll only root you on it's way back, so it's fine if he hits it on it's way out, but not on it's way back. You outrange him so poke poke poke. Also Grievous Wounds after 6.”

Grondvreter says “Untested. Do not get hit by his pull (E) if his Support or ADC is close u will die. Run from his ultimate.”
m1NEEX says “Regarding AP mages on bot Swain is by far the worst match up for Jinx and probably any ADC in general, since he is broken since his rework got released, you can't really win any 1v1 / 2v2 engage when he has ult up. Just farm, you scale better, when he ults and you don't have the damage to burst him just run away, it will end if no champion is in his range. Pay attention to red bar below his mana bar, it starts running down when no one is around him, when it runs down his ult ends.”
