Guide to Synergizing Draven and Swain

Tips for Playing as Draven with Swain

If Draven doesn't move, Spinning Axe will fall near his present location. It will fall directly on him, or just to the right or left.

If Draven does move after attacking, Spinning Axe will lead him in the direction of his movement. Use this to control where the Spinning Axe will go.

Advice to Understand How Swain Will Play

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.

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.

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.

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

Overall, Draven sees a large worsening in his KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Swain. His KDA fell from NaN to NaN.

Is Draven better when played alongside Swain?

There is no ideal synergy for Draven that will always be his ideal teammate. However, Swain is a very typical teammate for Draven. By being on the same team as Draven, he increases their win rate by 0.9% to 51.5%. This clearly indicates that there is not really a strong bond between Draven and Swain that allows them to perform at the top of their game together than without each other.

Swain has a lower difficulty than Draven. That means Draven players don't need to be very careful when arranging Swain teammates to play with, as they will require a relatively low level of skill to fight well with you.

Fighting alongside, Draven players should see an overall large increase in your team’s capability to dish out massive AD. Combined, these two should be able to take down targets with auto-attacks and other AD damage abilities.

In contrast, by aligning Draven and Swain together, you may not be giving your team much tankyness. Make sure to include other champions on your team that neutralizes this relative hole in this pairing's potential.

Regardless of your Swain ally's ability, you need to focus on maximizing your gold income, warding to avoid ambushes, and clearing objectives. If you do this, you should do well, regardless.
