Just a shout out to springreformed of OCE. You want to be toxic, you can be a toxic little tantrum kid for the world to see:

Irrationally selfish to the detriment of his team and himself, at full build, he takes all CS for himself in the presence of his CS-starved allies, shreding minions with his Statikk Shiv and full crit build even when his team mates are in dire need of the gold to finish their builds. Which of course, comes back to bite him when his team loses.

Let’s see by your own standards, how do you measure up? Nice history Draven. You can call others “disabled” in game chat all you want but what does that make you? A self-destructive kid who keeps hitting his head against the wall and expecting a different outcome each time? Keep on losing, mate. And keep on demonstrating your own intellectual handicap for others to see whilst projecting on others when you name-call.

Reworked Swain, fan art.
Swain as depicted by HolyElfGirl.

Swain personifies a good balance between tankiness and damage at the expense of mobility.  Swain is a damage-over-time mage typically played in top lane.

He generally builds items that make him tankier so he can survive long enough to set off his R.  His ult mechanic can work very similarly to that of Morgana or Fiddles, albeit with less urgency and more leeway due to his being tankier.

During his ult, he becomes a high-profile target who will draw the fire of enemies, and Zhonyas is designed to make him immune from this.  Linadry’s Torment will allow him to inflict increasing damage over time.  In this way, much of Swain’s itemization is built around his ultimate.
