Swain Champion Gameplay – Official Video
Here we are glad to share with you an official video from League of Legends YouTube page to see all the recent changes in action together with a great explanation and in-game participation ideas.
As you can see Swain has the same spirit as before but got some new strong features. Let’s talk about them specifically.
Swain’s new abilities
New passive, called Ravenous Flock: allows Swain gather soul fragments from immobilized champions and pull them closer to him. If an enemy champion dies Swain also collet soul fragments and heals for a particular portion of his full health.
New Q, called Death’s Hand: an aoe ability, which can be fired as a conus containing several bolts in front of him. This attack can pierce killed targets and restore Swain’s mana, several bolts can hit one target but only the first one deals the whole damage.
New W, called Vision of Empire: Swain can reveal other champions with this ability within a pretty good radius from him. This ability has a small delay but for each revealed enemy champion, Swain gets a soul fragment.
New E, called Nevermove: Swain projects his hand in front of him in a line dealing damage to all enemies in its path. On its return, the hand explodes in a first target, roots, and deals damage to everyone caught by a blast.
New R, called Demonic Ascension: Swain gains a large amount of health on-cast and drains life from several nearby enemies for a particular duration. When his ultimate ends, Swain consumes his soul fragments to cast Demonflare. That ability damages the closest enemies around him. It’s damage increases for each soul fragment consumed up to five. If the amount of drained health is enough Swain can end his ultimate earlier to cast Demonflare on-demand.
