Guide to Synergizing Senna and Swain

Advice to Understand How Swain Will Play

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

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.

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.

How to Play with Swain as Senna in LoL

The Senna Swain synergy stats shown here demonstrate the areas of her gameplay that do better (or worse) when paired with Swain, compared to her overall stats. Significant differences are areas of focus that highlight how her gameplay changes when paired with this other champion.

Overall, Senna sees a large worsening in her KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Swain. His KDA fell from NaN to NaN. This decrease shows that Swain helps Senna perform not as well in ranked LoL matches. Yet, the small difference shows that this performance change is not very impactful.

When Senna is an ally to Swain, she gets a marginal improvement in her full damage output. This difference could signal that Swain supports by providing protection for her to deal more damage or that his participation also helps extend the game's duration. Similarly, when Senna is played alongside Swain on the same side, he usually scores many fewer killing sprees compared to when she plays without Swain. This is contrasting evidence that she is worse when playing synergisticly with Swain.

Moreover, when Senna plays with Swain on the same side, she typically takes a little less damage than when she plays alone. Taking not as much damage may indicate that Swain does a decent job of protecting Senna during teamfights.

Is Senna better when played alongside Swain?

There is no universally accepted best champion pairing for Senna that will always be her ideal teammate. Yet, overall, Swain is a decent teammate for Senna. By playing on the same team as Senna, he raises their win rate by 2.3% to 51.5%. This shows that there is a potentially meaningful bond between Senna and Swain that results in them performing stronger together than alone.

Swain has a greater difficulty than Senna. That means you must be careful when arranging Swain comrades to fight alongside, as they will need a greater level of skill to be able to fight well with you.

When playing on the same side, you will likely see an overall large increase in your team’s capacity to deal magical damage. Combined, these two are able to dish out a surprising amount of magic type damage.

In contrast, by grouping Senna and Swain together, you may not be granting your other allies much protection for burst damage. We recommend you have other champs on your team that offsets this hole in their capabilities.

Regardless of your Swain ally's ability, you should focus on maximizing your gold income, outlasting your enemies, and clearing objectives. If you do this, you will do well anyway.
