Season X of League Of Legends Introduces Sett

Season X of League Of Legends Introduces Sett



Sett, new LoL champion

This Friday, season X of League Of Legends is finally coming out. With it, we will get an interesting new tanky champ that goes by the name Sett, the Boss. Let’s see what he can do.

It seems that Aphelios just came out yesterday, but Riot is not slowing down. Sett will be playable immediately after you download season 10 patch. Compared to the Aphelios, he is not as complex character to play, but he does introduce some new mechanics into LoL.

Sett’s Various Abilities

Passive: Pit Grit

Pit Grit consists of 2 abilities: Heavy Hands and Heart of the Half-Beast. Heavy Hands makes Sett alternate his punches, with a right hand having a couple of bonuses like bigger range, faster attack speed, and improved attack damage. You gotta be fast with your right hand though, as the cycle will reset if you don’t use it within 2 seconds. Heart of the Half-Beast gives Sett bonus health regeneration, which gets stronger as his HP drops, similar to Garen.

Q: Knuckle Down

This one does a number of things. It gives Sett +30% movement speed when walking towards enemy, resets Heavy Hands timer, and gives bonus damage to next 2 basic attacks.

W: Haymaker

Haymaker gives Sett a passive that turns damage taken into Grit (up to 50% of max health).  After the initial 4 seconds, Grit will start decaying by 30%. When Sett uses Haymaker, he will get a decaying shield that’s equal to the Grit stored. Furthermore, he will deal true damage to the enemies in front of him.

E: Facebreaker

Facebreaker works similar to Thresh’s lantern attack by pulling enemies in front and back towards him. If Sett manages to grab enemies on both sides, they will be stunned. Otherwise, he will just slow them down and deal small damage.

R: The Show Stopper

Sett’s ultimate will suppress enemy champion while he leaps forward and slams him into the ground. This is an animation that cannot be stopped. All enemies that are in the area will receive damage based on the HP of locked champion and be 99% slowed for the duration of 1.5 seconds.

Gameplay Tips

Although he isn’t officially out yet, we have played with Sett and would like to offer some ideas on how to handle him. The first thing you will notice is that he isn’t particularly fast. His Knuckle Down ability is useful for engaging in fights, but Sett doesn’t really have disengaging abilities. However, he makes up for this with his strength and durability, making him an ideal pick if you are looking for tanky support or top. Thanks to the passive, he is at his most dangerous with low HP. Combine it with Haymaker to get a big shield, and you have a devastating combo. Sett is pretty OP at the moment, just look at this video.

Sett has the luxury of fighting inside minion waves, as his Facebreaker will then be used to its full potential. When using ultimate, you will want to pick the enemy with most HP and slam him onto other enemies. True, the Show Stopper is a bit risky, but if you time it right with Haymaker and Facebreaker, it is absolutely deadly.

Idea For Build

Regarding items, you will want something that shields you and does good damage simultaneously. Trinity Force is a good first item for Sett, and you can follow it with the Black Cleaver and Sterak’s Gage. Additionally, Titanic Hydra will help you replenish your lost HP fast.

If you are playing as a support and need more defensive items, Thornmail and Gargoyle Stoneplate are both good options. Guardian Angel is a good finish to both builds, as it will prevent you from dying after using your ultimate.
