(HoB) Sett midlane build - For those who can grow a sett of

By Dipto
What is HoB?
Before I issue this whole essay, know about me first! You can skip this part if you are a snowflake Redditor. (You guys don't like change so this guide ain't for you).

Me: I am Dipto, my friends call me *******. You can do it too if you want. I am an Ape from Bangladesh who lives in Sweden now. I was Plat 2 both seasons 7-8, but then University and Work happened so, now I am gold. I started this season from Iron 2 and now I am in promos to Plat just because of Midlane Prowlers Sett. You don't need more information about me, you can watch my stream instead and ask me **** there at: Prowlin made all this **** up...

First of all hello people! I am Prowlin, I am here to provide you with...what is this **** all rune (HoB). It is (Hobo on Bacthecal) in the medical term Bacthecal stands for "used to reduce tension in your muscles which causes spasms. These spasms happen in various illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and other diseases or injuries of the spinal cord or brain.". We all know Sett has high carry potential, but how? I be having Spinal cord/Brain dmg trying to carry my team from toplane. Now i decided to go midlane where people don't go Bramble first item nor have bone plating to negate meine combo. So (Hobo on Bacthecal) became (Hail of Blades). I am currently sitting on 21 games 85% win-rate.

Basic attacking an enemy champion grants 110% bonus Attack Speed for your next 3 basic attacks. While active, Hails of Blade removes the attack speed cap.

Hail of Blades lasts 3 seconds, and each basic attack refreshes the duration to 2 seconds.

Cooldown: 8 seconds

Facts: Now you are thinking, this is just some attack speed bro, what are you on about? And I am standing looking at you thinking...Doesn't he know that there isn't any item that gives you 110% attack speed LVL 1? No right? exactly, so shut up **** up, and adapt to a different approach to Sett. Sorry, I love you, I have never been toxic, this is just how express my love, please try to understand that I am here for you. Now shut up and listen, HoB is good on Sett, I am not trying to start a cult...yet. This is still a really good option if you feel confident against your opponent. I have been doing this since Sett came out, I don't use conqueror on him ever. I hate slow games, Sett isn't supposed to be slow in lane, (In my opinion). Imagine playing DOOM but not in 60 fps, where it already says (Facepaced Game). What's the point of playing it then? I am not gonna bash people going other runes ofc, that is your way, this is my way.

Okay, so how does the combo work? I will put a link here: How to use a condom...
This is HoB tutorial where I failed to explain some things which I will go into more details here.
How does Sett's punches work? Second punch comes faster. The only thing you need to know. Now lets count, Hail of blades have 3 attacks with 110% as. A good way to proc the whole come combo is (HoB 3 basics into your 4th basic which is your passive second punch, meaning it will come out fast. So, basically 4 fast punches right? Now that into a Q-AA. Meaning 6 basic attacks within 2 sec.

If you are against a Garen who has armor runes LVL 1 around 40 armor. This whole combo will do 340 dmg, but now we are going midlane, where the opponent most likely pick a mage or go mr runes. So, they will have around 18-30 armor. I will do 390-430 dmg Lvl 1 with the full HoB combo. This ultimately scares the piss out of the Midlaner and the jungler doesn't want to waste time ganking you. In these recent 20 midlane games I had junglers ganking me only 6 games because the other times I was stomping soo hard that the jungler doesn't want to visit me. Because if they do, they will lose the jungle momentum, the jungle meta now favors me, because you really need to pick a jungler who is mobile, fast, and clears well. (Stares at Hecarim, Udyr, Lillia) Next patch, only Xin Zhao, Volibear, and Lillia might be relevant.

How do I count the combo?
Long trade-full combo: 3 Hail basics into a 4th punch which is your fast punch, into a Q-AA (6 Basics in total).
Short trade: 2 hail punches into Q-AA and then you back.
Execution trade: Q-AA into 1 last Hail basic and 4th fast punch + Ignite. (Proc Ignite only depending on the situation of getting the kill)
In lane I count my punches, how? I count Setts basic attack as (1-2) meaning first punch and second punch. So a combo of HoB punches into Q-AA, in head I count (1-2-1-2-1-1).
1-1 stands for your first ability meaning Q, so it is a Q-AA. The AA stands for 1-1. This is a lot to take in I know, but I got used to it at this point where I don't have to count.

So what is the proper execution of a full kill combo? This is where Sett's other abilities play their role.
Walk into the target, get a minion or anyone else between your E and opponent you want to kill. Target is stunned, depending on the situation, it is up to you which you one to perform.
Long trade-full combo? Short trade? Execution trade?

Vision of Execution: How it is supposed to look like, E stun, perform long trade-full combo, Ult + Ignite while you are ulting, so when the target lands it will have less chance healing up fast. Because when you land, you apply 99% slow for 1 sec. So you can finish the target, with another 1-1, if you have a lot of ability haste already or just a simple W or AA.
Where is Gamora? Who is Gamora? I will do you one better, Why is Gamora?
This basically boils down to "Where is Stridebreaker Claw? Who is Galeforce Claw? I will do you one better, Why is Prowlers Claw?". Sadly, Those other two items don't have the same function as a Warwick Q, when you hold onto people and if the target dashes or flashes it won't stick. Prowlers Claw makes it stick. It sticks soo good, it will remind you of the Warwick rework trailer. Those minions didn't stand chance... Imagine getting away with this in ranked...which I did.. People will either hate you or...hate you. Just go with it, it's league, you should have chosen a better hobby. Since you didn't you will be stuck here with me...and my stupid *** guide. me or something.
( ͡ಠ ͜ʖ ͡ಠ)

Prowlers Claw: Dash in a line through the target enemy's location, and upon completing the dash, deal 65 (+ 25% bonus AD) physical damage to the target and increase your damage dealt to them by 15% for the next 3 seconds (60 second cooldown; 500 range).

Pretty good, long range for a dash, on a champion who doesn't have a dash, It's pretty solid.
Again the full rundown of the combo, If you saw the video earlier here, you saw that I used Prowlers claw to come between two targets, they both got stunned and it helped me to get two kills. Precisely that, just focus the target you used PC on. Because on that target it now applies 15% increased dmg for 3 sec. 3 seconds is a lot for a full hail of blades combo.
I can still hear the spam pings of my item choices in-game, and I am not even playing right now, cuz I am making a guide.



1. Essense Reaver
- This is the weird item, where you look at me mentioning it and then you close down the tab start another game of ranked and you lose, cuz you suck ^^. “You couldn’t live with your own failure. Where did that bring you? Back to me.“ - Thanos. Since you are back let me tell you, before PC i used to run Tryforce into Sanguine or vise versa if fed, but now they made that item to be a ****ty mythic,(11.7 its gonna be better, gonna start playing Yorick again. I use it for the "SPELLBLADE: After using an ability, your next basic attack within 10 seconds deals 100% base AD (+ 40% bonus AD) bonus physical damage on-hit". This plus the 15% increased dmg from PC + Sett's Q dmg which is based on Target's max health + the crit. Now that is a lot of dmg. The only reason why i build it. Not for the mana, but it is like a mini tryforce with ability haste which you need.

2. Stormrazor
- This is optional, i only build this if two targets are mobile and the rest isn't, but also if all of them are squishy. Or at least if the main dmg dealers are squishy. When the item is fully charged and you basic attack, you slow the target by 75% for 0.5 sec. Now I know it's not a lot. But imagine before basic attacking you straight up use PC first, then you apply the slow with the basic, depending on your good positioning you will be behind target, So even if the target flashes the target will be slowed enough for you to catch up with q + e and delete.

3. Sanguine blade
- I use this only when we are ahead in objectives, like at least 2-3 drakes up, then you apply pressure on the sidelines or when jungler gives me herald, and when it pushes in, you can join your team to take the last whatever objective. If someone tries to fight you, you will win automatically. Sanguine provides a lot of Lifesteal, As, and lethal dmg. When you kill someone, they die...

4. Guardian Angel
- Build it just before you think the enemy deems you as the prime target. Because even if they focus you, you will dish dmg before you go down. It should be your target.

5. Maw of Malmortius
- Maw is 300 gold cheaper now, it is really good against mid-lane matchups like Veigar, Viktor, Syndra, you know pure bursts. Also against Eve Jungle.

6. Serpent's Fang
- Only when they have Seraphine, Lulu or Janna.

7. Ravenous Hydra
- When you think they aren't buying any healing reduction. Only when you are on your 4th item, buy it when they least expect you to heal. This will force them to buy morellos or other healing reduction items. This is good because all healing reduction items reduce healing but stats don't give a lot of dmg or other pressure.

8. Farsight Alteration
- This is a bait, you sit in a bush, ward it when you already see someone nearby, they will quickly go try to take it down cuz of the ward sound, if the bush you are sitting in isn't warded. you can get of an easy kill. I usually bait out squishy supports like that. This literally makes the adc useless, cuz protection from support is now gone.

Bottom line, nobody in your team excepts you (Sett) to go full ad and all man-mode, here is your chance to shut them up, and you can carry them instead. Because in your teammate's head it is "Sett is a stride-breaker claw champ, he will be beefy".
How about Nah. I have never been cocky about anything but, there is a first time for everything I guess.
Your bread and butter..

Bruh you should already know about his abilities. I max E after Q, because of the amount of ability haste I have in my kit, it helps me in longer fights. I use W only to escape turret dmg, consistent dmg, and to negate bursts. When you ult someone you will land behind the target. Be careful how you use it. That's it lol.
What about Runescape? How will your opponent escape your runes? Only if the idiot goes bramble first item and has boneplating. If they don't have these, they won't escape from you.

Cheap Shot or Sudden Impact?

Cheap shot is good for early trades, after you stun you dish out good amount of dmg cuz of it. Sudden Impact is good when you want safe lane till you get PC, when you have the item, meaning you have a dash, only then this rune helps you dish out more dmg.

Eyeball collection, going HoB meaning you will get kills, a lot and fast. Unless you are playing it wrong. Every takedown meaning more ad. Which is always good.

Ravenous hunter is something I usually run, but after the nerfs I kinda feel that there isn't much healing from it, I will only get Ravenous now when I see that I need Sanguine blade. Otherwise no need.

I will try and see how Ingenious Hunter will work out, Although it helps to get back PC usage faster.
Ultimate hunter, I only run this when I am against an Assassin, those who are gonna build ability haste as much as me. Because if I get an early kill, that means my ult will be available before theirs.

Precision Tree, Alacrity, farm up As from kills or minions in lane. Helps to boost your Hail of Blades combo even faster. Coup de Grace is good because you already plan to put them down below 300 hp LVL 1. This just helps you to do the Execution trade, if they misstep when you are LVL 2 and you can stun them.

take +18 adaptive, depending on your mid-lane matchup take Armor-Magic runes. The only time I pick the health rune is when I am against a tanky mid-laner like Galio. Because after his all in, I can just e him and dish out all the dmg he did to me with W, and W does dmg based on HP you have so. Win Win.
1v1 me you magical THOT
You win versus all ad mid-laners league has to offer, even Lucian so, no need to talk about it. So let's talk about Mages. The only one that can really stop you is Cassiopeia cuz of Miasma, her spam and ult, which you can dodge, but meanwhile, you do all that she has already spammed 9 q's at you. Against other midlaners, it is all about your position, dodging skills, nothing else matters here. Safe farm.

The only 3 threats are Viktor, Ahri, and Cassiopeia, where Cass is the biggest counter to your PC HoB usage. So ban her. Viktor is easy to kill only when you have PC. because you use it, he will put his trap down, so you can ult him away and yourself from his gravity field. Ahri kinda can stop your PC Usage with a charm, I only go in when she misses it. That's about it actually.

Not gonna talk about the Synergy with Sylas that much, unless you tell your friend to play Sylas while you play Sett mid. It is crazy, I and my friend had a 10 game winning streak where 6 of those games I think I played Sett and he played Sylas or Gragas. Our opponents always think that its Sett top and Ap champ (Gragy and Silius) is mid. This ultimately gives us a lane advantage and how much dmg we can dish out.
Who you be mon?
Sett for me is a champion that can be whatever, super-duper flex champ. Can go anywhere with anything. (If you build him right ofc). I have been playing HoB on him since release so for me, it is a bread and butter mash each time I play my comp.
No seriously, who are you?
You who is reading this guide for no reason, thx for reading it. Don't be negative about it, the first rule. No reason to be a ****. I already mentioned that this ain't for everybody, only for people with a sett of balls. Have fun out there on the rift, and be nice to everyone! Especially to yourself ^^.

Also, don't play this if you have problems with your self-esteem or if you hesitate a lot. Then this guide ain't for you. You need to be confident, don't screw up for yourself and your teammates. Have a good positive attitude towards winning. Losing sometimes is fine, that is how you learn, (What can you do better next time?). “People are less likely to shoot at you if you smile at them.” - Mad Jack. When you win, win with a smile, when you lose, lose with a smile and come back stronger.
