You will see lots of people playing Sett with damage builds, on-hit builds, but Sett is designed to be played as a REAL 1v9 IMMORTAL BOSS and that’s what our build will make him, a total unstoppable champion that will be impossible to die and cause of the combination of Spirit Visage Revitalize that it will be combined perfectly with your Haymaker making the shield from the skill to increase by 60% and the overall damage that you can do with this skill alone to be an insanely big amount of TRUE Multi targets DAMAGE!
Your passive Pit Grit together with the Second Wind and Doran’s shield will make it IMPOSSIBLE to lose from lvl 1, no matter what you are playing against, cause of the insanely big amount of hp regeneration that you got and that you will multiply it even further by Spirit Visage for another 25% later on!
With this build Sett will be a total MONSTER in ANY LANE, be it Top, Mid, Jungle, support or even BOT cause we maximizing his potential greatly by using the BEST item-runes-skills combinations that will make you unstoppable while of course having tons of fun while playing him!
Sett is one of the champions right now that not only will totally destroy any champion, or even 3 champions (1v3) with our build, but will also support his teammates cause of your ultimate and your W that can teleport for a gank or even save your teammate from getting killed in the middle of the fight, will you CONTINUOUSLY NON-STOP FIGHTING against all 5 of them!
And cause of your R The Show Stopper you will be able to take the TANKIEST member of the enemy team, throw it to them and then go melee range, pull them all towards you with Facebreaker and instantly one shot them with your Haymaker while being IMMORTAL!
Check out what our Full Immortal Sett build can do here:
Let’s get started by explaining Sett is going to be the REAL IMMORTAL BOSS!
Grasp of the Undying One of the most powerful runes in the game for champions like Sett and especially for him cause of his skills, this rune will give you 3 stats, bonus damage with % of your HP that will work greatly with your Knuckle Down that will do %Max HP of the enemy target as well, from the damage that you will be doing you will ALSO HEAL from Ravenous Hunter and its second effect that will heal for 2% of your MAX HP,
making Grasp of the Undying the most important rune for this champion, its 3rd effect and one of the most important stat that most people forgetting is the 5 permanent HP that you will also get each time you are using it, the more you fight, the more IMMORTAL you will be!
So just from Grasp you will have 3 effects that together with your passive will make you a total monster, but this is just the beginning. Let’s continue!!
Shield Bash A super important rune, a MUST TO HAVE for Sett and one of the reasons that to go for Grasp is the only way, it will give you bonus Armor-Mr each time you got a shield PLUS bonus damage that scales with the % of the shield for your next basic attack cause of your Haymaker you will use Shield Bash non stop, also cause of Sterak's Gage you will have a second shield that will make you EVEN STRONGER and will use this effect for two times in row and of course cause of Spirit Visage and Revitalize you will multiply your HEALS and SHIELDS by 40%
Second Wind Another monstrous rune, HP REGAIN each time you receiving damage from the enemy that scales with your MISSING HP, people keep underestimate it, but cause of this rune, Pit Grit and Doran's Shield you will be totally UNSTOPPABLE early, cause this triple regeneration from level 1 will give you the ability to trade with the enemy for AS LONG AS YOU WANT and kill them easily while being Full HP!
Revitalize One of the most BROKEN runes that on certain champions works incredible, Sett is one of them, 5%-15% BONUS HEALS and SHIELDS that together with Spirit Visage you will increase these effects up 40% and will make you an IMMORTAL MONSTER! Also you will increase the heals and shields from allies such as Janna Yuumi Sona etc. Making you even stronger!
The secondary runes tree that we will choose will always be DOMINATION and that cause we need the Ravenous Hunter rune at all cost plus one of the other 2 choices:
Cheap Shot Extra true damage after your CC, and Sett is the MASTER OF CC, cause he got plenty cause of his E and his R, a powerful rune that will give you extra damage, most of the times, this is what we will be choosing!
Taste of Blood If you want better sustain, then this is your option, bonus HP each 20seconds while damaging your enemies, this amount will multiplied by 40% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage
Ravenous Hunter A MUST TO HAVE RUNE, 11% Damage to HEAL, that means each time you using your RUNES-SKILLS-ITEMS-HITS, you will receive 11% of the damage dealt as health back, this amount will be MULTIPLIED by 40% cause of Revitalize and Spirit Visage and together with all the runes that we talked about will make you a total MONSTER!
By having this combination of runes you will realize that Sett is many times stronger than you think, making him impossible to die while having the damage to kill them all, even if you are 1v5!
Now that you understood the combination of items Balorians, you are ready to go for the ITEM CHOICES and realize how powerful this champion really is!
Let’s continue with the item choices now.
Our first back item will always be Bami's Cinder that will give you HP and tons of AOE Damage that will help you dominate against any target plus Refillable Potion and Cloth Armor if we got enough gold, your main focus is to go back to base with 1150 gold, in order to buy Bami's Cinder and Refillable Potion something that people ignoring is that by buying Refillable Potion as soon as possible in the game, you will have free pots all lane phage long and you will also sell it and gain back some of the gold that you invested to this item, making it TOTALLY FREE!
Then our main focus in to first buy Bramble Vest cause of the armor and its effects will make us even stronger, you will repel back damage while applying the Grievous Wounds effect that will reduce their healing at the same time and also heal from the amount of damage you will repeal to champions or creeps cause of Ravenous Hunter so fight close to creeps and maximize the heal even more!
The moment you will finish buying these two part items, you will be ready to fight against any kind of enemy, be it an AP TYPE or an AD TYPE champion, you will have damage and enough sustain to overpower them completely, even if you are playing 1v2! By having continuing healings effect, like the regeneration from Pit Grit, Second Wind, Doran’s shield, Grasp of the Undying, Ravenous Hunter you might be able even to 1v3 if you use your R right and instant kill the first target!
Then we will finish our Mythic item Sunfire Aegis the most powerful item for Sett, you will now have everything you need, HP, Armor, MR, Ability haste, 5 bonus TENACITY with each complete item, AOE BURN effect around you that will scale with your HP, that means Grasp of the Undying will increase the damage effect of the item limitless!!!
And also one more effect, for each second that you are in-combat while applying damage with Sunfire Aegis you will gain stacks, with each stacks you will do increased damage, at max 6 stacks, you will have start applying a second AOE effect that will double your damage to all the targets that are within the range, making you the absolute KILLING MACHINE!!!
Cause Sett is all about sticking close to the target, your Q movement speed bonus, your E pull effect, even your R will make sure to keep Sunfire Aegis effect activated in full stacks but also cause of your fast hits with your passive and Q you will deal INSANE damage every single hit!
Then we will finish the Thornmail with these 2 items you are ready to battle any kind of enemy and win easily, even in 1v3 situations even if they got AP DAMAGE, you won’t have any kind of problem, cause Sunfire Aegis now will give you the MR that you need to survive, thornmaill now except of course the bonus HP, ARMOR and more repel damage will give you another effect, while immobilizing the enemies you will activate another much stronger HEAL REDUCTION EFFECT and reduce their healing for 60%, making them UNABLE TO KILL you but also UNABLE TO HEAL AND SURVIVE!
Our next item will ALWAYS BE Spirit Visage this item might be one of the most important to have items for our build, the reason is cause of the combination of Revitalize that we talked about you will have an insanely amount of bonus healing, that will help you sustain and easily right now destroy any kind of enemy, be it FULL AD or FULL AP and even have the power to 1v5 easily! The stats that Spirit Visage gives are the most gold efficiency stats that you can buy in the game, not only you will have HP-MR-Ability Haste-REGAIN but you will also have 40% BONUS HEALS and SHIELDS together with Revitalize from any kind of source that you got plus heals and shields from your teammates as well, so just imagine playing with a Soraka or Janna with you or even deadlier to have Yuumi!!
That means the shield from Haymaker will be multiplied by 40% as well, you want to know what that means? Your Haymaker is storing 50% of your max HP as grit, this Grit will come to you as shield, lets say you got 4000hp, that means you will have a 2000 SHIELD EFFECT that will be multiplied by 40% and make it go up to 2800 Shield instead, is it just that? Of course not, cause of the power of Shield Bash you will now use the 8.5% of that shield plus 1.5% of your bonus hp as DAMAGE BACK with your next basic attack, to understand the total number, it is around: 280+ Dmg ONLY FROM A SINGLE RUNE! Without calculating the true damage that Haymaker can really do!
Then we will finish our Boots into MOST OF THE TIMES Mercury's Treads cause we need the extra TENACITY effect, plus to balance out the ARMOR and MAGIC RESIST, we will only have Spirit Visage for magic resist and together with the boots it will be MORE THAN ENOUGH!
If you playing against FULL AD teams with ZERO CC, then go for Plated Stealcaps especially against champion that using basic attacks as main source of damage, like for example Tryndamere Yasuo or Master Yi etc. this item will COUNTER THEM completely, cause it will reduce their pre-armor reduction damage by 12% (its pretty big, cause after that you will recude it even further cause of your resistances)
Now for the 4th item you got the following options:
1. Sterak's Gage the new sterak is now an item worth to buy for our Immortal monsters, AD, HP and two INSANE passive effects, heal that will stack for each target you will damage or take damage from and a huge shield effect that will make you even stronger than before, this effect will also activate the Shield Bash meaning you will have more damage to apply and both of these effects will be multiplied by 40% cause of your Spirit Visage and Revitalize
2. Redemption HP, Ability Haste, 20% Bonus heals and shields (60% together with Spirit Visage and Revitalize) and a HUGE AOE Heal and 10% Max TRUE DAMAGE Effect that will be game breaking!!
For last item will ALWAYS be Warmog's Armor the MOST gold efficiency item in the game, its passive alone is 1000% gold efficiency of its cost as a stat and this item of course is Warmog's Armor not only you will have HP, Ability, HP Regain but you will also have an insanely out of combat HP REGAIN, imagine that you will have the power to go in, fight literally for AS LONG AS YOU WANT and then, if you are TOO LOW, to flash or just simply walk away, wait for 10seconds and then go in again with FULL HP, something else that right now is a good time to realize, we also playing with the rune Second Wind this rune is giving you health regeneration equal to 6 (+ 4% of your missing health)
cause its scales with the missing HP and cause we will have 4000+ TOTAL HP or even more with our BUILD, the moment you are with only 1000 HP left you will have regeneration ~12HP per second (~120 in 10 seconds) this amount, will be multiplied by your Spirit Visage as well by 25% (its a same that Revitalize is not scales with HP regan a well) that means, from the Second Wind alone and without calculating anything else you will have HP regain of ~16 HP per second (Imagine that you also have, the base hp regain, Spirit Visage hp regain, Warmog's Armor hp regain to sum them up to even greater number)
Another reason we are going for Warmog's Armor is the INSANE HP that you will have, more HP, means more shields, more damage, more sustain and more IMMORTALITY, especially the heal effect it will be incredible powerful tool that you will use to always stay full hp and go back to fight again, the TENACITY that you will have from the Mythic item Sunfire Aegis and the complete build also will give you the ability to spam yours kills non-stop, something that we lacked before the new items was CDR for our skills, now this problem is solved and you will be ready to destroy all while not dying at all!
And also never forget to always get your Elixir of Iron for BONUS HP, TENACITY and also bonus movement speed for your allies that following you into battle or even Elixir of Wrath cause overall we are doing lots of physical damage as well
The Full Sett Item build will look like this:
Sunfire Aegis Thornmail Spirit Visage Mercury's Treads Sterak's Gage Warmog's Armor and always Elixir of Iron/ Elixir of Wrath
Sunfire Aegis Thornmail Spirit Visage Mercury's Treads Redemption Warmog's Armor and always Elixir of Iron/ Elixir of Wrath
Sunfire Aegis Thornmail Spirit Visage Mercury's Treads Redemption Sterak's Gage and always Elixir of Iron/ Elixir of Wrath
For 60% bonus shields & Heals that will work TOO GOOD with Sterak's Gage
And now you can fully understand why this combination of items together with RUNES is BY FAR the most powerful one that you can even play with on Sett
It’s time Balorians for you to become the TRUE MONSTER of summoner's rift and make everyone to be your FOOD!!!!
So let’s talk about what you need to focus.
Creeps(FOCUS on FARM): The most important thing is to focus on your farm, you need to farm fast and if you can kill all the creeps without missing even one. This way you will take the lead from your enemy champion, dont be afraid to use your skills for last hits even at the 1 level.
Stay Alive: To not to die at lane and not have any kills is more worth than to be 3-3 or 4-4 with your enemy Lane champion.
Your build focusing to be the strongest at the MID-Late game, doesn't matter if you can’t kill now, focus on farm and you will be able to show your true Strength at the right time of the game.
To play Sett is incredible FUN and easy as well, our Immortal build will make sure that you won’t have any problem against any match up, the reason behind it is cause its close to zero punishable no matter how many mistakes you will make in a game, your passive, doran’s shield, Second Wind, heal effects from Sterak's Gage, Grasp of the Undying and all the heal from the damage that you doing from Ravenous Hunter will make you unable to die and stay alive for as long as you want!
Always use your Facebreaker to pull the target close to you, if you are not close then you can use the speed from Knuckle Down and be fast enough to reach him, by using your Facebreaker you will bring him close to you and activate instantly your Cheap Shot to do true damage, then hit him twice and press Knuckle Down but doing that you will hit the target 4 times almost INSTNATLY, applying the max %hp damage as well, but also applying the Grasp of the Undying effect, that means, heal, damage, max hp for you, then if he start fighting back wait to do some damage on you and watch the Grit bar to go close to FULL and then use your Haymaker try to hit him with the center area of the skill to do TRUE DAMAGE instead and maximizing the chance to kill him, if he somehow survive then its time to use your The Show Stopper try to not throw him to a spot that can easily Flash over the wall cause you will probably let him either escape, or use your Flash to chase him down, after finishing this combo you will have back your Knuckle Down and your Facebreaker to use it again and make sure to kill him!
No matter who is against you there will be NO WAY for them to survive or even hope to kill you, cause this build is designed with a way to be absolute IMPOSSIBLE to die in 1v1 or even 1v3 situations!
In team fights, remember to use your The Show Stopper and throw the TANKIEST MEMBER of the enemy team to the backline, this will apply 60% enemy’s champion BONUS HP as DAMAGE AS WELL, making you throw a BOMB to them and make them panic, then instantly use your Facebreaker and if you taking too much damage instantly from the focus use your Haymaker as long as you got the full grit bar filled to apply the max damage and also have the MAX SHIELD, don’t be afraid to use the W once the Grit bar is filled, you will have it again later on cause of the Ability haste that our build got, so try to focus on the target that will die first and let your allies clear up anything that will manage to survive from your 1v5 engage!!
Now you are ready to literally DESTROY everything my ultimate Balorian, there is nothing can will be able to stop you and remember that even if you mess up early and die sometimes, you will still be able to be an unstoppable monster later on, never tilt, play to have fun and improve and you will always end up victorious!!
