The boss, Sett, is definitely one of the most picked characters and also one of the most popular. With difficulty level 1 on him, he is not very difficult to play. Matthew Knipfer, creator of the mathematically correct Pantheon Build, has created a new build that is the mathematically correct Sett Build.
He emailed RossBoomsocks with a spreadsheet of what appears to be the mathematically correct sett build and why the build is OP. RossBoomsocks has since made a YouTube video of the build and has run the numbers and tested the build as well. Looks like the construction is really cool and very sturdy. The build has become so popular that even Riot’s champion designer, Riot August, tweeted a meme about it.
Learn more about mathematically correct settlement construction
Mathematical correct builds are generally LoL builds made after many calculations with different items and stats.
The mathematically correct Sett build seems to only build HP and AD. You don’t buy any other stat items and focus mainly on HP and attack damage.
With all other stat items removed, you have very limited AD and HP items to build on.
Mathematically Correct Settlement Construction Order
When you start the game, grab a Doran Blade and a Health Potion. First try to get the Bloodbaby along with the Ionian Boots of Lucidity. This will increase your attacks.
Your main build should be Sterak’s Gage, Black Cleaver, Titanic Hydra, and Warmog’s Armor, in that order. Don’t worry if you can’t do the full build, as your set should be more tanky when you buy Black Cleaver.
The main thing to keep in mind is that in a mathematically correct build you need to MAX your W to increase damage. Here is a guide to level up your skills in order. See the image below.
Why is the mathematically correct creation of settlements so overloaded?
The reason this build works so well and repels Sett is because of the passivity of his Haymaker. Every time Sett takes damage, his passive allows him to regenerate 50% health. Since his passive takes damage, it helps his tank not build defensive items. For more mathematical details on the reasoning behind this construction, you can refer to this table created by Matthew Knipfer.
So for this build buying only HP items and attack items is great. Here’s a League of Legends ranking for September.
