Another Opponent, Another Disappointment

Patch: 8.4

WhyPhase Rush

Phase Rush on Swain massively empowers your ability to stick to your opponent while casting your ult as well as being able to stay in range for follow-up [Q] damage.

WhyThe Ultimate Hat

Swain's [R] has a rather long cooldown but the survivability it provides can grant you the edge in a skirmish the more you have it up, the better.


The bonus Movement Speed from Celerity is pivotal in re-positioning for landing a clutch [E] root and maneuvering with your [R] active in teamfights.


Scorch is an incredibly strong early laning rune for pressure and harassment. Look to proc the bonus damage as often as possible with either [Q] or [E].

WhyPerfect Timing

Zhonya's and the stasis are a key part in taking over teamfights as Swain thanks to the ability to keep your [R] active and healing you throughout.

WhyCosmic Insight

Cosmic Insight is an all-around fantastic rune choice for any champion as the extra bit of CDR helps you pump out more damage and stay safe with increased Summoner CDR.
