Sethos is an upcoming four-star Electro bow user who is expected to be released in Genshin Impact's Version 4.7 update. Amid the sea of Electro sub-DPS characters, leakers state that Sethos will be a main DPS unit. Here's everything you need to prepare to build him.

Best weapons for Sethos in Genshin Impact

There are so many DPS-focused bow weapons in Genshin Impact, and all of them can be used on Sethos. However, the best-performing options would be those that increase his Elemental Mastery and Charged Attack Damage.

  • Hunter's Path (best-in-slot five-star) - This weapon offers a CRIT Rate substat, increases Elemental DMG Bonus, and increases Charged Attack DMG based on Elemental Mastery. It synergizes well with Sethos' kit, which requires a good amount of EM to trigger Reaction-based damage.
  • Cloudweaver (best four-star) - Offers an EM substat and further increases EM whenever Energy decreases.

Best Artifacts & substats for Sethos in Genshin Impact

According to leaks on Sethos' kit, both his Normal Attacks and Elemental Burst are considered Charged Attack DMG, so opt for Artifact sets that can increase this stat.

  • Wanderer's Troupe (best-in-slot) - This Artifact set is extremely niche, and it's finally going to get some good use. It increases Elemental Mastery and Charged Attack DMG (only for bow and catalyst users), making it the perfect set for Sethos.
    • This Artifact set can only be obtained from random boss drops and Domain Reliquary boxes from the Spiral Abyss.
  • Elemental Reaction-based set - Great alternatives if you're unable to farm decent substats on Wanderer's Troupe. Their four-piece bonuses are dependent on your team comp, so choose carefully!
    • Thundering Fury - Overloaded, Electro-Charged, Superconduct, and Hyperbloom
    • Flower of Paradise Lost - Bloom, Hyperbloom, and Burgeon
    • Gilded Dreams - Receive buffs based on team's Elements (ATK for Electro characters, EM for all other Elements)
  • Two-piece combos - These two-piece combos give you the flexibility mix-and-match versatile sets you already have to ease the burden of farming.
    • Gladiator's Finale (+18% ATK)
    • Echoes of an Offering (+18% ATK)
    • Shimenawa's Reminiscence (+18% ATK)
    • Thundering Fury (+15% Electro DMG Bonus)
    • Flower of Paradise Lost (+80 Elemental Mastery)
    • Gilded Dreams (+80 Elemental Mastery)

Sethos's best Artifact substats

  • Sands: EM
  • Goblet: Electro DMG Bonus or EM
  • Circlet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG, depending on what you need
  • Substats: EM, ER, ATK, CRIT

Aim for around 120 to 160% ER depending on whether you have Electro batteries in the team.

Genshin Impact Sethos Talent upgrade priority

Sethos' kit will not be finalized until his release in Version 4.7, so his Talent upgrade priority is not yet set in stone. With the current information we have, his Talent upgrade priority will likely be as follows:

  1. Normal Attack: Royal Reed Archery
  2. Elemental Burst: Twilight Shadowpiercer
  3. Elemental Skill: The Thundering Sands

According to leaks, most of Sethos' damage output will come from his Charged Attacks, so you'll benefit from prioritizing his Normal Attack first. His Elemental Burst comes second, while his Elemental Skill can be completely disregarded. I don't recommend wasting a Crown on it.

Best team for Sethos in Genshin Impact

Since Electro is used in a lot of Reactions, Sethos can be slotted into a lot of team comps. But to maximize his potential, make sure that they're versatile enough to deal Elemental Reactions—he's not a great pick in experimental mono-Element teams!

  • Aggravate team - Sethos + Nahida + Electro sub-DPS (Fischl, Beidou, Yae Miko, Raiden Shogun, Kuki Shinobu, Kujou Sara) + any character you need (i.e. shielder for survivability or your favorite waifu or husbando)
  • Overloaded team - Sethos + Chevreuse + Pyro applicator (Xiangling for DPS, Thoma for shield) + Electro battery (any sub-DPS)
  • Hyperbloom team - Sethos + Nahida + Electro sub-DPS + Hydro applicator (Xingqiu, Yelan, Furina)
