Swain

the Noxian Grand General

Mage Fighter

Jericho Swain is the visionary ruler of Noxus, an expansionist nation that reveres only strength. Though he was cast down and crippled in the Ionian wars, his left arm severed, he seized control of the empire with ruthless determination… and a new, demonic hand. Now, Swain commands from the front lines, marching against a coming darkness that only he can see—in glimpses gathered by shadowy ravens from the corpses all around him. In a swirl of sacrifice and secrets, the greatest secret of all is that the true enemy lies within.

Ravenous Flock (SwainP)

Swain's ravens collect Soul Fragments that heal him and restore his mana. Swain can right-click an immobilized enemy champions to pull them closer to him, dealing damage and ripping out a Soul Fragment.

Death's Hand (SwainQ)

Swain unleashes several bolts of eldritch power that pierce through enemies hit and stop on impact with enemy champions. Enemies hit take more damage for each bolt they are struck by.

Vision of Empire (SwainW)

Swain opens a demon eye that deals damage and slows enemies. Champions hit are revealed and also grant Swain a Soul Fragment.

Nevermove (SwainE)

Swain launches a wave of demonic power forward. It then returns to Swain and roots enemies it hits.

Demonic Ascension (SwainR)

Swain transforms into a demon and drains health from nearby enemy champions, minions, and neutral monsters. Swain can cast Demonflare to deal damage equal to the amount of health he drained, ending his transformation to decimate nearby enemies with a nova of soulfire.

Swain Counter Tips

Swain's passive is very potent if you are immobilized. Make sure to be extra careful around enemies who have immobilizing effects.

High mobility counters all of Swain's basic abilities: Death's Hand does more damage the closer he is, Vision of Empire has a very long delay and Nevermove must start returning back to him to be dangerous.

Buying an item with Grievous Wounds will make Swain much easier to kill during his Demonic Ascension.
