with spell vamp his ult makes him nasty. dont forget to build mana so you can sustain his ult longer

Raw AP makes the heal better, and helps your other spells. Extra spell vamp on the ult is overkill, and that is subject to diminishing returns.

And yes, make sure to get mana, as ap/mana gives you more sustain heal than spell vamp.

more AP stronger heals> More defense less damage > Keeps health up. Spellvamp is too expensive

Alot of people seem to say get tear of the Tear of the Goddess but i dont spam my abilities much as him and even end game im not close to the 1000 mana.

I only really buy tear of goddess on champs who spam abilities like Cassiopeia ezreal or few others.

the whole mana problem actually gets solved with AP as well you know, since if you get kills with your ultimate, or with your W, you can generate a ton of your mana back with your passive, you dont need much mana regen that way

and as for the spell vamp is concerned, its not for your passive, its for all your other abilities, espcially your E and Q since they're single target and do quite a bit of damage,

you can regenerate a lot of health back with them and your ultimate. but best to only get it if your allies can also benefit from it as well.

spellvamp doesn't have diminishing returns as its based off percentage. like lifesteal.
and WotA gives you 80 ap and 25% spellvamp for 2100 gold. i think thats a steal

Of all the games I played with him will of the ancients does help you and your team in fights. The team will stick near you for the spell vamp while at the same time wait for your W. As for the mana troubles Rod of ages then just get blue buff or just grab philo stone.

WotA is a pretty strong item for how cheap it is. One thing to consider when deciding when to get it is if your team can make good use of the aura. If after you get a RoA you are still in a good laning phase considering farming for the deathcap, if the match is turning into tons of fights might be better to get a WotA for teamfights. Just remember to always build to what each game needs.

Is there a max to the amount of mana per five seconds I can get? I was trying out Swain in a game and testing out if I could get enough mana to substain his ult forever. I got my mana per 5 sec up to 289 but then when I purchased chalice of harmony it dropped back down to 108. Is there a max to the amount of mana I can gain per five seconds?
