Tips Against Sett in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

xPetu says “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.”
[11.1] xPetu's Challenger Shen Guide by xPetu | Shen Player
PH45 says “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. ”
I Am Goliath says “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.”

Sovereign Kitten says “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.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP IN YOUR FAVOR. TAKE CONQUEROR. SHORT TRADES EARLY LEVELS. DON’T LET HIM HIT YOU WITH W TRUE DAMAGE. DON’T STAND IN A WAY WHERE HE IS BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR FRIENDLY MINION. YOU BEAT HIM PRE-6 IF HE MISSES W AND POST-6 STRAIGHT UP. IF YOU ARE LOSING EARLY WAIT TILL 6. DODGE W OR AT THE VERY LEAST GO TO THE SIDE OF IT SO YOU DON’T GET HIT BY THE TRUE DAMAGE. YOU CAN WAIT FOR HIS SHIELD TO DECAY. TRY TO KITE HIM. DON’T TAKE FULL AA DPS. LEVEL 6, DON’T STAND BETWEEN HIM AND HIS TURRET. HE CAN R YOU INTO TURRET AND INSTA KILL YOU. CORRUPT POT WORKS. DBLADE IF CONFIDENT. DSHIELD IF NOT SO CONFIDENT. STEELCAPS -> STRIDEBREAKER. Sett is a matchup that you can sometimes snowball off of but it is nevertheless a tricky one to play properly for Darius mainly because of his W shield. You’d play into him as you would into a Jax or a Tryndamere where you wouldn’t just stand in front of them an AA them. The trick is to use your ghost and your AA range to kite them. With Sett it gets a little trickier to do but he is still beatable in all ins in early levels if you are able to outplay his W. His shield decays rapidly (for 3 seconds) so it might be a good idea to kite around him until the shield goes off and then go back in. If he is between you and one of your(allied) minions, then he will stun you which will allow for Sett to use his W’s on you, leaving you no option but to take the true damage. This insta loses you the fight as he just deals crazy amounts of damage. His HP regen is also something to look out for as it comes into play later on into the lane. He essentially has built in rejuv beads which means that he will be able to survive through some of your poke later on. This means you have to switch between 2 playstyles during this lane to play around his strengths. You want to be playing the early levels carefully, poking him with Qs and backing off. His HP regen is a bit weaker early on so exploit it and take quick but good trades. The reason you want to do this is due to his W. This is his most powerful tool and disengaging before he can use the shield is the way to go. Sett is a lane where a Corrupt pot start would actually be a good option as your approach shouldn’t be to all in fight him. But people make mistakes so a Dblade or a Dshield start will allow for you to better punish Sett and force his flash/kill him if he missplays/mispositions/misses his abilities. Remember in fights to KITE him. If you don’t, the fight will be a lot closer as he can sometimes just bash your face in. And a fed Sett is a NIGHTMARE to deal with.You should try to poke him before he can use his W shield enough so that you get him low enough to all in him. You CANNOT cancel his abilities with your E. If you pull him during his W, he just moves with it. Use your superior movement speed if you have ghost to sidestep his W. If you feel like he is going to use his W, get really close to him and just run around him as the W is easier to dodge the closer you are to him. Once he uses his W and you have some HP left to work with, he is free food. You have to NOT take his full AA DPS though. KITE. If you find yourself getting demolished in trades, try to sustain up and wait for level 6 because you will be able to kill him in an all in at that point. Your ultimate is much better than his and this is the point where you want to be switching gears. His W damage scales to be quite high at this point and his HP regen comes into play so you want to be looking to just full all in him and kill him if you aren’t behind already. Building against Sett is similar to how you would build against a Darius actually. You are going to want to rush Steelcaps and then get a lot of health. Health is the only way to counterplay flat true damage. Runewise you will be looking to go for Conqueror most of the time.”
Drake6401 says “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.”

MarkFromSingedMains says “Sett is really strong in close-range combat, you beat him if he misses his E and if you kite him (Which is pretty easy to do). I'd suggest getting Rylais first to really empower your kiting. If he gets close range he hits you like a train so watch out for that, and try not to trade too much in lane.”

Wawza says “With his innate health regeneration boost he will most likely outsustain you through the laning phase, and poking him down is out of the question. His ability to stick to you is also dangerous and prevents you from hitting most of your sweetspots on him, go for trades when his abilities are down so he can't disrupt your combos.”
iZeal says “Do not ever fist fight him for prolonged times especially once he finishes his Blade of the ruined King. Abuse your superior range and his long W cooldown, dodge his E and watch him suffer as he can't reach you. Your sustain is superior and he is easy to gank or run down when he makes a mistake. Kite until your abilities come back up even if he is at low hp since his DPS is way higher than your pitiful excuses of auto attacks.”

Fan22 says “Well, you dont have to think a lot to know why Sett its a direct counter to chogath. His Q has % max Hp damage, his W its true damage, and His R AoE damage scales off from the enemy Additional HP, meaning that if he Ults Uou into your team you are doomed. Early game poke him whit Q when he tries to farm and be careful since his W shield can prevent him from diying to your Ultimate and has good damage early game. Late game position yourself away from him and your team since Sett gets a free "R Penta" if you do not do. I reccomend banning him since its really hard to deal with him even when you are ahead because the way Sett scales. ”

yers says “Support sett with omnistone, hexflash, and nimbus cloak alongside his thick shield he can get with his big punch can easily negate your damage and catch you out. Keep your distance from him and never facecheck brush.”

EUWRATS says “Super strong in current game state, he's able to take you out of your R with his R so make sure to avoid him because if he is able to get you with his R he can use E and W after that which pretty much kills you. Do not focus him at any point of the game, way too tanky and strong”

Doubtfull says “This champion won't invade you early game, making it an easy match up. If you time your CC right you can one shot him before he can use his W shield. Beware his ability to cancel your W with his ult or his R.”

ak521 says “Sett's difficult because he can ult Tank Amumu and hurt a lot of your allies... he also has massive true damage and shields and can EASILY 1v1 you. To win, apply as much CC as possible and peel for your allies. Do not contest drag alone unless you are sure you can steal it/have level advantage on him.”
HVfun says “He can just wait for you to attempt to engage and ult you back into your backline doing massive damage. Attempt to out gank him early, and you need to play to counter engage/peel in teamfights.”
Riealone says “Jungle Sett is a some sort of tank. He can beat you still, but I don't see a threat here like with Vi. All you need to do is be smart (when to fight or not) and outrun his W true damage ”
Hidon1 says “He does not really do anything to you, so do not be afraid of him early game. With Phase Rush he can barely touch you, even if he himself has Phase Rush as well. Just gank as much as possible in this match up. Do not be afraid of him taking your camps as he will not use them for anything. ”

FREAKSTAR says “Disgusting champion, however he is not REALLY made for the jungle. If you play efficiently you will out tempo him and win the game. If he gets fed though.. forget about it. He will ult someone into the middle of your team and hit a 1 shot nuke on your squishies. Just take advantage of the fact that he stacks hp and is a bit slow. Rylais and Liandries to melt and slow him down.”
DarkAuraLOL says “his clear is fine, his mobility is fine, just avoid getting caught by him , try to steal his camps and not fight him early, play around your team and try to get early form, then you can do something to him, you will also eventually outscale him with your clear. ”

Tips Against Sett in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “He is super tanky, but he shouldn't be able to get close to you with overload and Phase Rush. You scale better than him. Dodge the middle of his W to not get hit by true damage. Also stay out of his E range when his bar is full.”
[S11.1] RYZE THE RUNE MAGE [MID/TOP] [VERY IN-DEPTH] by Polarshift | Ryze Player
Dr Eggmund says “His kit is designed to run and lock you down. If you deal damage to him, he will retaliate back. The good news is Sett's W which gives him a shield and big explosion of damage is designed to counter burst champions. In lane it's best to farm and try and survive as his early presence is insane.”

SpartanDumpster says “If the enemy picks Sett, it can be a gamble what role they're going for. Sett can be pretty tough for Yone since he has such good health regen with his passive. In the early game, typically if you don't win an extended trade, you have to back off, which Sett exploits with his healing. If he gets away with 1 HP, he doesn't need to recall, he can just sit under his turret for 5 seconds and will be above half his max health. Also, Yone has to get close to do any real damage, and Sett typically isn't someone you want to get close to. Attempting the Quick Burst Combo while in your E might be the safest bet, because if you time it right, you can recast E to escape his pull, otherwise he can really hurt you before you return to your body. If you pull this off and he doesn't back off at all, you could go in and poke him with a distanced Q or two before his E is back up. Once his health is staying fairly low, you can look to all in him, but watch out for his W, it can really turn a fight in his favor. If possible, you could try to feign an all in, bait out his W, then go all in for real. Perhaps E, Q-dash, continue trading or land a Q, he'll W so then you recast E and Ult him. It could also be a good idea to hold onto your ignite for this since he could ult you in a last ditch effort, so hopefully he might die in the middle of the ult. Of course, use your ignite before level 6 if he's low enough to kill with it at some point.”

Avucado says “Matchup is up to your jungler but you're never going to die in this lane. Never all in him unless he's behind and you're way ahead. Big hitbox so he's easy to gank since you can just hook him. You can never really kill him without a gank because of his healing and the items he builds. Roam if your jungler wont come and you'll be fine. Steelcaps cut a good amount of damage off of his autos but only take them if there is a lot of other AD.”

Sushi_Cat says “While Morde's performance into Sett is still being assessed, it's generally accepted Morde does pretty decent into Sett. While Sett does excel in sustained fights, not even he can compete with Morde's literal constant DPS output. Overall, this matchup is a lot like the Kled matchup except it doesn't suck for Morde. Lots of super long all-ins rather than short trades. ”
Zethal_Na says “This will be one of the champions that you won't win even with your passive stacked. Dodge his w with your qs and keep a distance.”
