League of Legends: Sett guide

Here's everything you need to know about Sett.

Sett is League’s latest bruiser who thrives when getting up close and personal, landing big punches, taking some himself and unleashing a big old piledriver of sorts. He’s even able to power up like Goku, which makes him one of the best Champions in the game already in our books.

Below we’ll round up all of his abilities, drop some gameplay videos and offer some strategy advice to help you master the “Boss” Champion.

Sett: Abilities

Here’s a quick breakdown of all Sett’s knuckle-busting abilities:

[Passive] - Pit Grit

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 are 8 times the left punch's attack speed, deals 5 ? 90 (+0.15 per attack damage) in bonus physical damage (depending on level).

Sett gains 0.25 / 0.5 / 1 / 2 health regeneration per second for every 5% of his missing health (at level 1 / 6 / 11 / 16).

[Q] - Knuckle Down

Sett gains 30% bonus movement speed within 1.5 seconds while moving towards enemy champions.

Sett's next two basic attacks within 5 seconds each deal 10 / 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 (+1% per 100 attack damage) (+1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 percent of target's maximum health) in bonus physical damage. Consuming an attack will refresh the timer.

Knuckle Down also resets Sett's basic attack timer.

[W] - Haymaker

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 accumulated Grit decays by 30% every second after 4 seconds.

Sett blasts an area in the target direction, dealing physical damage to enemies hit. Enemies hit through the center take 90 / 125 / 160 / 195 / 230 (+10% per 100 bonus attack damage) (+25% of expended Grit) in true damage instead.

Sett also gains a rapidly decaying shield for 3 seconds equal to the Grit expended.

Using the ability costs 100% of Sett's current Grit.

[E] - Facebreaker

Sett pulls in enemies at his front and back, dealing 50 / 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 (+0.6 bonus attack damage) in 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.

[R] -The Show Stopper

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 it into the ground.

Enemies within the impact area take 200 / 300 / 400 (+1.0 bonus attack damage) (+40 / 50 / 60 percent of primary target's bonus health) in physical damage, which is reduced by up to 40% on the edges, and are slowed by 99% for 1.5 seconds.

The dash will prematurely end upon reaching a wall that cannot be dashed through.

Sett: Lore

Sett’s full backstory hasn’t been revealed just yet, but here’s what we know from his official Champion Insights page:

- Sett’s a pit fighter from Ionia, and he’s an exemplification of how Noxian violence has spread into the region.

- Sett’s father was a pit fighter too, and left to seek out bigger and better fighting pits across Runeterra. When he left, Sett and his mother were cast out of their tribe and forced to live among humans as outcasts. Let’s just say they weren’t welcome, and the hatred they were shown has shaped his character.

- All he cares for is his mother and money. He cares so much for her, he even goes so far as to lie to her about where his income stems from, so she doesn’t get caught up in the seedy underbelly of Ionia.

  • Max your [Q] first, [W], then your [E].
  • Be aware of Sett's passive whenever you're auto-attacking. You'll want to keep an eye on his rhythm and try not to reset your auto-attacks too frequently if you're engaged in a lengthy brawl, as you'll limit your damage output.
  • You can use your ultimate to scale walls, so if you see an opportunity to transport enemies into your allies, then go for it!
  • Your ultimate can also be used to close the gap between yourself, and the enemy team. This is especially useful as you've got limited mobility as Sett, so don't be afraid to leap in from time to time if you're strong enough.
  • Try and slot in auto-attacks between your abilities to maximise damage.
  • Avoid using your [W] to poke unless you see a particularly juicy opportunity. It's an absolute game-changer in a fight and you won't want it on cooldown when throwing down.
