I think Rod of Ages and Spirit Visage are good items on him? Kinda having some trouble with the rest of his build though.

Because on one hand I can build damage and gain survivability through his healing, or I can just build tanky? Not suire.

Zhonyas is pretty much essential. With Swain you can build most AP Items on him, depending on your team and theirs. Even stuff like Frozen Heart is good on him for Armor, Mana, CDR.

Abyssal Scepter is pretty good for his playstyle.

I like to grab a tear early to expand my mana pool early, and then build RoA first. Zhonya's is a really good item on Swain because it gives him a few seconds of free heal if he's surrounded.

The big deal with Swain is to be able to sustain your ult for as long as possible so you don't need to pulse it in teamfights. Some people like to do this with Athene's, I like to do it with the tear items and RoA.

What about Liandry's? Or Void Staff?

Swain isn't about straight up damage. He is about getting focused and tanking the living **** out of everyone, while building tank items and one hitting enemy ADC
