Champion Build Guide
PASSIVE: PIT GRIT
INNATE - HEAVY HANDS: Sett's basic attacks alternate between a left punch then a right punch. Sett begins attacking with a left punch, and will reset back to it after 2 seconds of not performing a right punch.
Sett's right punch gains 50 bonus range, attacks at 8 times the left punch's attack speed, and deals 5 − 90 (based on level) (+15% AD) bonus physical damage.
INNATE - HEART OF THE HALF-BEAST: Sett gains Health regeneration icon 0.25 / 0.5 / 1 / 2 (based on level) health regeneration per second for every 5% of his missing health.
Q: KNUCKLE DOWN
ACTIVE: For the first 1.5 seconds, Sett gains 30% bonus movement speed while moving towards enemy champions.
Sett's next two basic attacks within 5 seconds each deal bonus physical damage. Consuming an attack will refresh the timer.
Knuckle Down resets Sett's basic attack timer.
PASSIVE: Sett stores 100% of post-mitigation damage taken as Grit on his secondary resource bar, up to 50% of his maximum health. Each instance of stored Grit decays by 30% every second after 4 seconds.
ACTIVE: Sett blasts an area in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies hit. Enemies hit through the center take true damage instead.
DOWN BUT NOT OUT: Sett also gains a rapidly decaying shield for 3 seconds equal to the Grit expended.
ACTIVE: Sett pulls in enemies at his front and back, dealing physical damage and slowing them by 50% for 0.5 seconds.
If Facebreaker affects at least one enemy on each side, all enemies are stunned for 1 second upon landing.
The Show Stopper
R: THE SHOW STOPPER
ACTIVE: Sett suppresses the target enemy champion and then dashes unstoppably at a fixed distance toward it, carrying it along for 1.5 seconds before slamming the target into the ground.
Enemies within the impact area take physical damage, reduced by up to 40% at the edge, and are slowed by 99% for 1.5 seconds.
The dash will prematurely end upon reaching a wall that cannot be dashed through.
This is my personal favorite item for Sett, It gives movespeed which you desperately need, attack speed which makes your right punch come out faster, and a sheen proc for his spammable Q in fights and spaced ability usage.
Titanic Hydra in its current iteration DOES NOT INCREASE THE SPEED OF YOUR RIGHT PUNCH. If you use titanic hydra you MUST use it on the left punch. For example, LEFT PUNCH, RIGHT PUNCH (Titanic) LEFT PUNCH, RIGHT PUNCH. The second left punch is on a different auto attack timer, so your 2nd right punch comes out with the bonus attack speed. If you use Titanic on the RIGHT PUNCH, it removes the bonus attack speed scaling from it.
This item allows you to gain more grit, or use your w in better positions so you get the maximum return from it. Sett’s w shouldn’t be thought of as a defensive tool alone, but also a key offensive skill, so in order to reliably get off both portions of the attack Sterak’s is one of your best options.
This item is really strong on melee bruisers if you have a lead, or you need to stand back up in a fight. There’s a lot of armor on this item as well as a decent chunk of ad, which are all stats that synergize well with each other. I’d pick this up 3rd or 4th depending on the game.
Sometimes you have to choose between Tenacity and Survivability in a game. If the enemy Veigar is really weak on a full ad team, but keeps you locked out with the stuns, then you have to pick up MR boots for the bonus % tenacity in order to deal your damage. This works the same way for primarily AP comps with a strong adc. Sometimes you have to buy the Ninja Tabi in order to negate the ADC’s damage so you can get off a full spell rotation without dying, even if they have a bunch of AP champ
Blade of the Ruined King
This is a pretty decent item for Sett if you need a way to chase down champs with less gap closers and higher hp pools, such as Volibear, Maokai, Illaoi etc. The MS steal works really well with your q’s active move speed bonus.
This is a pretty solid item that gives a bunch of stats that Sett really benefits from; AD, true damage taken to be used as Grit later on, lifesteal, and CDR. Pick this up if you’re able to survive fights for long enough without resists and snowball a lead.
This is a really good item for getting in or eating that one undodgeable cc that keeps locking you out. Good against Lissandra, Morgana, Leona and the like.
Just a worse titanic, but more ad. Gives lifesteal if you don’t need the LP/RP auto reset.
