Guide to Countering Swain as Aurelion Sol

Tips for Playing as Aurelion Sol against Swain

You can use Comet of Legend's flight to grow Starsurge to massive proportions.

Comet of Legend allows you to move quickly around the map; use it to put pressure on other lanes.

Save Voice of Light to use as a defense against melee opponents if you need to - otherwise, use its slow to start a fight at long range.

Advice to Win Against Swain

Swain's passive is very potent if you are immobilized. Make sure to be extra careful around enemies who have immobilizing effects.

High mobility counters all of Swain's basic abilities: Death's Hand does more damage the closer he is, Vision of Empire has a very long delay and Nevermove must start returning back to him to be dangerous.

Buying an item with Grievous Wounds will make Swain much easier to kill during his Demonic Ascension.
