Guide to Synergizing Vayne and Swain

Tips for Playing as Vayne with Swain

Tumble has many uses, but it cannot pass over walls.

Condemn can be used to both pin targets to walls to ensure a kill, or to escape a pursuer.

Don't go in first to a large teamfight. Wait for your teammates to initiate.

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.

Is Vayne better when played alongside Swain?

This demonstrates that there is an important bond between Vayne and Swain that results in them performing at the top of their game together than alone.

Swain has a lower difficulty than Vayne. That means you don't need to be cautious when finding Swain allies to play with, as they will require a lower level of skill to play well with you.

Fighting together, you should expect to witness an overall large increase in your team’s capacity to dish out massive AD. Together, these champions can provide a great amount of sustained physical damage.

In contrast, by bringing Vayne and Swain together, you probably will not be giving your other teammates enough protection for burst damage. We recommend you include other champs on your team that nullifies this hole in their abilities.

Regardless of the skill of your Swain ally, you need to focus on increasing your income, warding to avoid ambushes, and taking down objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you should do well, regardless.
