“Sett is kind of similar to darius, really hard to do much until level 9 in this matchup but it's also easier to survive then darius, basically don't take bad trades often early because his regen is ridiculous early game and you don't have the tools to extended fight him early on, make sure not to stand in the middle of his W, if he has a lot of grit built up then constantly be moving around so you don't get falcon punched, you can also E him to fling him behind you when he W's but you have to predict and anticipate it. You can sometimes get a kill with your ultimate in this matchup if he ever uses his W poorly but just be careful with trading, ninja tabi is also a great buy early against this champion because he autos a lot and you can kite him a lot with the MS. Another thing to note is you can E buffer his E so you can E right before he E's to instantly get away when he pulls you in.”
“Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport
Tips: Use Q-W when he E's you. Dodge his W sweet spot at all costs. He can W-Flash at last second to redirect the cone. Very difficult matchup, but winnable if you are the better player.”
“Sett is going to be all about CC and getting in close to chain CC you while dealing True Damage. You need to avoid the center of his (W) otherwise you take a lot of true damage depending on how much damage you dealt to him. This will also shield him with the correct combo, however, since Sett release his (W) cooldown got higher making it harder for him to spam it. It would be wise to constantly poke him from a safe range and avoid even remotely getting close to him. Glacial Augment is the best rune to help with this, effectively crippling his ability to chase or hold you down, the moment you get caught by his (E) CC especially if you run Everfrost lockdown.”
“This one you can only trade after level 3, you need to do short trades and in order to make an all-in you should bait his E first, and dodge his W with your dashes.”
“Hit him with your Q and W.
Run away from using its W your E.
Use your R behind his R range.”
“Early game might be tricky due to his bulkiness and damage on W. Dodge his Q with your E and path behind him or to the sides while he casts W to avoid the true damage and beat him down after that. Just be careful that he doesn't ult you under tower post-6. You outscale him decently quickly, though his W damage will still be very high once his grit builds up so be vary of that. ”
“Sett isn't too bad. He's broken so you'll never kill him but he'll probably never kill you. His W is the biggest problem - since it does true damage - but you have plenty of tools to get away from him. ”
“Stronger than you in the early laning phase because his W retaliation is brutal to work around. Treat this matchup like you would Darius and Mordakiser and disengage after your W. Just like them, Sett is better at long trades than Renekton and has a single long cooldown CC to drag you back into the fight as you try to back off.
Don't dash engage him for your first trade, he'll be able to lock you into the fight. Chunk him out so you're confident you can kill him in the fight. Use your dashes according to the situation. Another reason to hold your dash is to side dash his W as he will try and tag you with it as you make a leave.
Your burst will always max his W so avoiding it is vital. Use one dash to break distance and the second to dodge his W if he gets in range.
When he's low and you have kill pressure, make sure to hold onto W until it will kill him. If he uses his W early in a last ditch effort, break it and kill him. If you stun him and don't kill him in time, he can put up his shield and probably turn tables on you hard. What keeps this from being an easy fight is that you can't mess up at all while he can. It's another matchup like Darius and Illoai that requires a skill gap over the Sett player to have a shot in.”
“Annoying matchup. You basically cannot interact with the lane. DON'T. He is deceptively strong. His W is so damn overpowered. Just take it slow, farm up and be patient. Thankfully, once level 6 rolls around, you STRAIGHT UP just dumpster him. Just avoid the center of his W at level 6 and once you get a kill on him, you will snowball hard. You outrange him but I wouldn't risk poking him with Q as if he gets his pull onto you, he will beat you down very hard and you will have to flash unless you are near your turret. Just wait for 6 and if you don't win by then, just wait for lategame. You outscale him HEAVILY.”
“A lot of people would say " Wouldn't Neeko win the match up easy with the auto range advantage" yes it's true but Sett has a lot of Health Regen to make up the damage neeko can cause. Executioner Calling can help in this match up but will slow your purchase of Boots. Sett can catch Neeko if he rushes Tier 2 Boots so make sure to keep your distance once he starts rushing with his Q. ”
