Guide to Countering Fiora as Swain

Tips for Playing as Swain against Fiora

While laning, try to use Death's Hand's piercing damage to damage opponents from a safe distance.

Vision of Empire is quite difficult to land on its own, look for skirmishes around the map where enemies may be distracted or crowd controlled so you can land it more easily.

Demonic Ascension may make Swain very hard to kill but he's pretty easy to get away from. Try building items that can slow opponents to keep them in range if their mobility is overwhelming.

If you're having trouble rooting an enemy with Nevermove, try throwing it at opponents when they are near their minions so the explosion surprises them.

Advice to Win Against Fiora

Duelist's Dance shows you where Fiora will try to attack from, so be ready to punish her when she tries.

Be careful when casting immobilizing disables on Fiora. If her Riposte is available, she can turn their power against you.
