Genshin Impact's upcoming 4.7 update is set to introduce a new playable character, Sethos, who has been confirmed to be an Electro unit. Recently, leaks from reliable sources have given us an early look into his abilities, talents, and constellations. Here's a breakdown of what players can expect from Sethos based on the leaks.

Leaked Sethos Elemental Skill and Burst

Elemental Skill: Sethos deals AoE Electro DMG to enemies in front of him and retreats a few steps, similar to characters like Tighnari or Kujou Sara. If the skill triggers an Electro-based reaction, Sethos will recover 12 energy.

Elemental Burst: After using his Elemental Burst, Sethos enters a special state for eight seconds. During this time, his basic attacks become Dark String Arrows, which deal increased Charged Attack DMG based on his Elemental Mastery.

Leaked Passive Talents and Constellations

  • Talent 1: Reduces aimed shot charging time by 0.285% for each point of energy below 20%, up to a maximum of 0.3 seconds. Additionally, he further reduces energy after firing a Penetrating Phantom Arrow.

  • Talent 2: Increases Penetrating Phantom Arrow DMG by 600% of total EM once every 15 seconds.

  • Talent 3: Displays Sumeru local specialties on the mini-map

Constellations:

  1. Increases Penetrating Phantom Arrow's CRIT Rate by 15%.

  2. Gains a 15% Electro DMG bonus for 10 seconds, up to two stacks, after releasing energy with his Elemental Skill.

  3. Increases Normal Attack talent level by three.

  4. Increases Elemental Mastery by 80 if Penetrating Phantom Arrow hits two or more enemies.

  5. Increases Elemental Burst talent level by three.

  6. Refunds energy lost due to his talent after hitting an enemy with Penetrating Phantom Arrow.

Overall Impression

Sethos' kit appears to be reminiscent of Tighnari's but with a focus on combat against multiple enemies. While some aspects of his kit, such as his first talent, may seem confusing, further clarification is expected with the release of the version 4.7 beta. Players can look forward to exploring Sethos' full potential and integrating him into their teams upon his official release.

Release Date and Availability

Sethos is expected to be available as a playable character in the Genshin Impact 4.7 update, alongside Clorinde and Sigewinne. Depending on the phase, he will be available on either June 5, 2024 (Phase I) or June 25, 2024 (Phase II).

Community Reactions

The Genshin Impact community has expressed mixed reactions to Sethos' kit, with some comparing him to existing characters like Tighnari. Some players have expressed disappointment at another male DPS character, while others are intrigued by his unique abilities.

Sethos' kit offers a blend of offensive capabilities and utility, making him a potentially versatile addition to players' teams. However, players will have to wait for the official release to experience Sethos' full potential in the game.
