So, I just found this: http://eune.op.gg/champion/swain/statistics/mid where you can see that Swain win rate on middle lane is ~39% which puts him in place 43 out of 45 since patch 6.9, and on top with similar win rate at position 58 out of 59. Now this stats are a bit worrying. Until patch 6.9, I felt that Swain was ok (played him since 2nd or 3rd season), he had his weakness, an absolute awful champion for cs(making you extremely dependent on kills), very immobile, slow, but it was a kinda good pick against some popular picks on mid, because he was a good dueler thanks to his sustain. When I heard that he will get a rework, I was a bit worried, saw his Q spell which seemed like a nice change, but now it seems that it is a completely irrelevant spell, easy to break out of it, kinda hard to position that bird in a good spot, and the damage is laughable. Ok, and now for his ulti, I don't feel that the fact that it can hit 5 instead of 3 enemies is a good trade-off for it being able to hit its target only once every second, and why the increased cooldown on it (and that with 2 seconds) and making you buy a lot of cdr, so less room for damage. Again, it's just my opinion, messing around with some middle reworked mages, and comparing their situation with Swain.

Now that Swain Q is a Skill-shot, and not a targeted one, shouldn't it receive an AP boost vs champions too?
