Sett, The Boss just came out on the latest Wild Rift Patch 3.0. Sett is a powerful engage champion that’s hard to kill once he gets on top of the enemy team. This champion likes to jump into the middle of a fight and stay alive as long as possible while soaking damage for his team. Play this champion confidently on Wild Rift with the help of our in-depth Sett Guide to give players an overview on how to play him.

Sett’s Item Builds

Sett is a powerful AD bruiser, and even though he plays like a tank, he doesn’t need to build total defensive items. Instead, Sett is more useful when building AD items that make him a threat once inside a fight.

Sett’s Skill Order

  • Acquisition Order: E > Q > W
  • Order to Max: Q > W > E
  • Combo Order: E > 2x Auto > Q > 2x Auto > W

Sett’s Facebreaker is a great skill to start with since it provides a lot of damage early to clear the wave and harass the enemy, but Knuckle Down should be maxed out first for higher damage output.

Sett Guide – Overview

Now that we’ve covered the necessary builds for Sett, it’s time to learn the essential strategies needed to play him. Learn how to play this champion during the different phases of the game to have a higher success rate of utilizing him on your first try.

Laning Phase

Sett is an aggressive champion that likes to push the enemy back into his tower. Stand in the middle of the enemy champion and their minions to threaten them with your Facebreaker ability. Whenever they walk up to lane, hit them with your basic combo and stay in the fight as long as possible. Don’t be the first to run away.

Mid to Late Game

Continue playing in the side lanes, taking towers by yourself while occasionally roaming for a teamfight opportunity when your allies try to posture for one. Try to go to a side lane with the least number of enemies and use your speed to escape when enemies try to respond to your split-push threat. Sett is an extremely powerful split-pusher so use that to your advantage.


Use Sett’s Ultimate ability – The Show Stopper – to throw the nearest enemy champion, preferably the tank, towards the enemy team. Immediately follow it up by using Facebreaker on multiple enemies, then wreak havoc in the middle of the enemy team. Once your HP gets too low, use your Haymaker to deal the last tick of damage the enemy carries.
