Guide to Countering Swain as Senna

Advice to Win Against Swain

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.

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

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