Well wait until his skin comes out, then you won't ever get to see a good Swain again. I'll be rocking it too. Disregard Haters, Acquire Swain. --- Dota2 was mai waifu PSN/360: Maximal769

Currently the new spirit visage helps along with liandrys and the item that archangels staff turns into. If you can keep getting blue buff you will always have a strong team fight presence.

I've found that if you can play Swain well you can basically be completely immune to death. So, yeah, he is OP. He has always been OP. Nobody notices enough though.

I played a swain the other day and even though my mates uses him a lot I was still amazed at the sustain even when ignited. Safe to say I was heavily outplayed. --- Sent from my iPhone via PowerFAQs 1.10

A good Swain is one of the scariest things in the game, and always has been.
I crap my pants when I see a skinned Swain on the other team.
This, with the exception of Tyrant Swain. Never seen a Tyrant Swain do well.

The new items help him a lot. Zhonya start, new tear, liandry, SV etc. + If you have a maokai jungle, free kill basically every gank. --- Trolling is a art

Honestly, the past couple of times I've played Swain I have been fed 10+ kills, but for some reason he just isn't able to carry your whole team as another major ap mid would, feels like he just doesnt do enough burst damage. I just don't feel like he does enough damage as other ap mids do such as ryze or karthus who will carry your team. just off experience

Hmm. Also, with his W vs melee/ junglers / gap closers.
Aaah, I liked it more when no one played him. Too hard to kill, you stick around him trying to kill him? Takes forever even with ignite and you lose soo much HP and his damage is AOE so he will get you down to like 75% all 3 of you.
I know, a simple trick, if he ults, cancels, go in during that 5sec CD on his ult. --- Trolling is a art
