Tips Against Swain as a Support Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

TheBlueImperial says “You're pretty strong against him during the laning phase, his only potent ability is his E so when that is down you can freely engage. His R however makes engaging into him incredibly risk and you will need Grievous Wounds as soon as possible against him.”

Harry132 says “Fairly easy matchup his kit is quite bad into you the only thing you gotta watch out for is his grap”

navarro41yt says “As Swain ADC he has nothing to stop a feeded Yi so you can abuse him if his support isn't a threat too.”

SirCaptFair says “abuse him, all in whenever you want, be careful at 6 if he has ult and zhonyas”

Discord231 says “Swain antes del nivel 6 no te dará mayores problemas, de hecho antes de la Existencia de la nueva Liandry, jugar contra él era divertido, ahora con su R y la Liandry te obliga a ser muy preciso en tus combos si no quieres morir calcinado. Si tienes un adc de early intenta ganar línea pronto.”
Rakan (Pretemporada 22) by Discord231 | Rakan Player
revu says “[ENGAGE MAGE] Same as Lux. Dodge his E forward. Consider rushing anti-heal item.”
GuanaTv says “Utilize os Leveis de 1 ao 5 para criar uma vantagem na rota. Após isso, procure criar jogadas quando a ultimate de Swain estiver em tempo de recarga! (Use Levels 1 to 5 to create an advantage on the lane. After that, look to create moves when Swain's ultimate is on cooldown!)”

I Am Not u says “What's that? You wanted to play the game? Too bad! Enjoy getting CC'd to death!”

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. ”

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”
Faeynix says “Swain is a pretty big threat, similar to Blitz and Pyke, but Swain has less of a pull than the others do. He's still scary, but with proper spacing and baiting, you can beat him.”

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.”

VerySpookySoup says “His grab is absolutely horrible to deal with as Miss Fortune but luckily it's a bit easier to dodge.”

Doody_tco says “The minions wave does not affect the ability of Swain can catch and grab Miss Fortune. Even without the help of the enemy ADC, Swain can solo Miss Fortune with his abilities and protect himself from her damage with his ult”
Miss Fortune - Road to Mastery 7 by Doody_tco | Miss Fortune Player
NikkiTT says “Swain ADC more played in higher tiers, he often times runs with exhaust which is a bummer, but you should be able to stat check him just fine with the power of ignite cutting his healing. (Will also be going zhonyas.) Building Riftmaker could be an option need more games into him to know.”

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.”

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

Halfhand says “TIPS: Swain is nearly impossible to trade with. If you play tf you have to walk into auto attack range in order to trade. Once you walk into rang swain can easily do his full combo onto you. Preferably you sit back in this matchup and just farm up.”
soulentt says “Playing against Swain can be so much annoying, he has great self-healing and he can easily root you and bring you closer to him. Do not let this happen. Poke him very often and dont get poked from him and it should be winnable. ”
Let the light shine through your ranked! by soulentt | Lux Player
V1kt0r555 says “[Start: Doran's Ring] [Spell: Teleport or Ignite][Stay out of his range and farm as much as possible][Build Morellonomicon]”
DabiDabi says “Throw your W towards him when he hits his stun and pulls you. So he'll have to take two W's. Just gotta fighting when he has his ult since he does get pretty tanky and heals quite a bit. ”
V1kt0r555 says “[Start: Doran's Ring] [Spell: Teleport or Ignite] [Don't get pulled by him] [Poke him from far] [Buy Morellonomicon]”
Fake Supp says “he is not played in midlane tho if it does you just have to dodge his E to win if he used ult look if u can out heal&dmg him then stay and kill him if not run”
Pyke Mid till the End by Fake Supp | Pyke Player
ThePieBeam says “Don't let his noob-bait root hit you and you're cushity. He doesn't do nearly as much damage as you and he's completely immobile so it's just a matter of hitting some abilities and winning. If you're too close and/or he hits his abilities on you he can still hurt tho so don't get too cocky or else you'll pay the price.”
And Her Casual Day Off by ThePieBeam | Anivia Player
TcKatfish says “[Press The Attack Runes / Long Sword and Refillable Pots start.] Swain will have a lot of damage if he manages to hit you with his E. Avoid this by not standing in the minion wave so it is easier to dodge. Once his E is down you can go in on him. Post Lvl 6 avoid going in with your grapple so you can use it to escape once he uses R.”
lonestar1870 says “You can outrange him, should be an easy lane as long as you dodge his E and don't get pulled. You control the wave and should be able to get prio whenever you want. You can use your E to stop his engage and counter him pretty hard. You solokill him pretty easily at level 6 if you can get a little poke on him first. He may build some MR so make sure to check his build. I prefer Electrocute for a bit more damage and kill threat, but you can go PR if you want. Aery/Comet are okay into Swain too. I prefer teleport into most mages, but ignite is fine to cut his healing a bit.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Easy matchup imo. Only way you lose this lane is if you are just getting hit by all of his Es on cd. Play to get your first back and you should be able to win trades with him everytime he misses E. Go conq into 2nd wind and shieldbhash unless you need unflinching for everyone else on the enemy team.”
