I take flash on singed. I dislike being so fast that I have to turn around to catch people running away. I get way, way more kills if I'm slower- people get baited into thinking they can chase and kill me.

The only thing swain needs is a different passive. For a dot based champion I'm surprised his passive doesn't do a mana dot effect on him, whenever he cast an ability each time it ticks he gains mana back.

Do you feel like with the w changes it is a lot harder to land it when there isn't a stun/slow on the target? Since the changes I feel like I can no longer land long range ws

Also which one tear or chalice? I find as swain ibhave to buy so many items but there just isn't enough inventory space lol

Let me know what you think.
Isnt that part of Swain's identity though?
He does have a big dependency on items and it is difficult to itemize. On the other hand it means since he has been balanced for his tough itemisation when he does get fed enough to buy enough items he becomes a monster

Not as Swain.
Most other midlane champions can easily shove waves and roam. Swain cant really afford to clear the whole wave, unless he spends 3 seconds in ult and burns his W (which is needed both for offense and defense). That's a lot of mana and a precious CD. You have to sacrifice those CS in order to roam effectively, and have a bigger impact where you can - in ganks and teamfights.

the only problem swain has is that He rely's on the most expensive stats in the game, Mana/mana regen and it so happens that those items only excel when your ahead or your a tank/bruiser ( frozen heart/Iceborn Gauntlets ).
