Guide to Countering Swain as Sivir

Tips for Playing as Sivir against Swain

Try saving Spell Shield for enemy abilities that can disable you such as stuns and roots.

Ricochet resets Sivir's basic attack timer on activation, so activating this immediately after landing a normal basic attack will maximize damage output.

Sivir's Boomerang Blade returns to her after reaching the max range, so you can shift position to hit enemies who would otherwise have evaded it.

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.
