New Jungle Swain Build Guide

"Because anyone can jungle now."

So you wanna jungle with Swain? Well I got some good news for you! Its actually pretty damn easy for the most part! We start here as pretty much any other jungler does, head to Red buff, kill it, down to the Golems, then Raptors, followed by wolves and then Froggo, HOWEVER, wait to kill Blue buff until after we kill the Scuttlebug for an HP boost, then we head for the Blue buff. After this we can begin our Swainanigans, now we are looking to play less "farmy" and more aggressive, because as we hit champions with our E and W, we get bonus health, which we can then turn into AP slowly using Demonic Embrace, so look for any opportunity you can to even just secure hits with E or W, and go for the kill when possible General Tips | If you're trying to damage someone who has very little movement capabilities, we general are going to want to use the "Classic 3-2-1," which actually means that we start engagements via pressing our E twice, followed by an immediate W, then a Q. If you are fighting a Champion with some kind of movement however, we are going to to hit E only once and then immediately use W and then use our Q, then we tap our E again to pull the champ, this will create just enough time for our W to guarantee a hit usually. Our W is very strong as a tool on its own because it has an extremely large range, does decent damage, slows and reveals the place its targetted in, because of these reasons we can use our W to check bushes, finish off low health laners hiding under towers or recalling, apply pressure in multiple places at once, and even play mindgames with our opponents to trick them into thinking we're in a lane that we're not really in, and then when they think we know we're not actually there, we surprise them by changing up plans and using it where we are actually headed. Specific Tips | If you're trying to fight a Mundo, try to proc his passive first with a W and then go for the double E into our Q to guarentee our Q hits for maximum damage while still getting our passive proc'd from our E. If you're fighting a Samira, try to bait her into using her W by using a Q blast, then if she falls for it, we use an E followed by an immediate W, one or two autos, then tap E again. If you're fighting Yasuo, try to bait out his windshield with a Q, then try to position yourself to hit him and not the shield at all with your E, into an immediate W, one or two autos, then another E tap, if you can't bait him with the Q, then let him block the E to try to distract him while setting up a W towards the direction he's already heading. Below are the two builds we will primarily be using, be aware that Swain's largest weaknesses is that he has only skillshots in his basic kit and that he lacks movement, so that's something to keep in mind both when using him and should you decide to tinker with either build to customize it at all. (P.S. I prefer Dark Harvest but feel free to also use Electrocute)
