Thinking about picking up Swain. User of Ahri, Kat

I like high mobility and kiting champions like Ahri and Kat.

Would I like Swain mid / top?

I really just want to use lazerbird.

Swain is NOT high mobility AT ALL. He has a snare for an escape (Well, his Ult can often keep you alive long enough to excape), but he seemed very slow the few times I played him during his free week.

Swain can kite, I guess, but mobility is not his thing. At all.

Laserbird is great though.

Swain doesn't move.

He kills.

He stays in place and kills.

He has good cc, sustain and sustained damage (not burst)
He doesn't have good mobility but has good 1v1 kiting with the lazerbird

Swain is more a mage tank akin to Ryze, he can still pull off some nice ganks if he roams and can hit Nevermove though and is pretty much unkillable when ulting near a huge minion wave. Always nice to have some variety though.

Swain is not remotely mobile. I don't like him at all. However, he is a huge hard counter to Ahri so playing him may gave an insight to how to handle laning against him with her if you ever come up against it. Not that you can really do much against him no matter how well you know his skills... =_=
