Who is Sett?

Sett is an Ionian fighter dubbed “the Boss.” The brawler’s biography states that he is “a leader of Ionia’s growing criminal underworld…[rising] to prominence in the wake of the war with Noxus.

The Vastayan “half-beast” was outcast from both his Vastayan and Ionian family, settling down in the depths of Ionia. He fights for his father, who’s legacy as a pitfighter in Ionia kept Sett safe as a child until his disappearance.

He fought his way to the top, and now looks to defend his honor ⁠— and his pit.

“Though he began as a humble challenger in the fighting pits of Navori, he quickly gained notoriety for his savage strength and his ability to take seemingly endless amounts of punishment.

"After fighting his way through the ranks of local combatants, Sett muscled to the top, seizing control of the pits he once fought in.”

What are Sett’s abilities?

Riot released an outline of Sett's abilities after the Mecha Kingdoms showcase on December 12.

His Passive, Pit Grit, outlines that his auto attacks alternate between a Left Punch and Right Punch. His Left Punch is a normal attack, while his Right Punch comes out faster and deals bonus damage for a good old one-two combo.

His Q, Knuckle Down, gives Sett 30% bonus movement speed for 1.5 seconds, as well as extra damage on his next two basic attacks.

His W, Haymaker, has a passive and an active. Sett stores 100% of damage taken as Grit to a cap of 300, which powers up his Haymaker. He winds up a punch, using all of his Grit and dealing true damage to enemies in a line, while gaining a shield.

His E, Facebreaker, smashes enemies on either side of him into each other, dealing damage and slowing them by 50%. If he grabs multiple enemies, they will be stunned instead.

His ultimate, The Show Stopper, grabs an enemy champion, carrying them forward and slamming them into the ground. All enemies near the slam take damage and are slowed.

When is Sett’s release date for League of Legends?

Sett’s release date is rumoured to be January 14, 2020, after PBE dataminers uncovered an item called Sett’s Calling Card in the shop. Players will be able to collect Sett’s Calling Cards from that date by “impressing Sett.”

The Mecha Kingdoms event is also expected to start on January 15, meaning Sett will be coming out at around the same time.

Sett is currently available to play on the PBE.
