Sett is a tanky champion with heavy damage and plenty off CC. He has low range and mobility, but if he can get into the enemy backline he can turn the tide of battle. 

  • Level 1 - Take E - Facebreaker, for the area damage and slow.
  • Level 2 - Take W - Haymaker, for the extra damage and shield.
  • First Back - Start working towards Goredrinker, or pick up Tiamat.

Tips & Tricks

  • Knuckle Down is a good auto reset, allowing you to chain four in a row.
  • It also provides move speed when approaching an enemy. If you have to escape, take a step towards your enemy to proc the buff, then turn tail and run.
  • Haymaker inflicts true damage in the centre of the spell, and physical damage on the edges. 
  • The Show Stopper always propels you the same distance, and will take you over walls. 
  • It deals additional damage depending on the health of your target. Aim for the enemy tank for best effect.
