Genshin Impact Sethos release date, build, and more

We love it when a character gets teased, and now we’ve got Genshin Impact’s Sethos announced as a new character coming to the game.

The next update, version 4.6, looks fit to burst with events, characters, and story updates – including a teaser of Genshin Impact’s Sethos. He’s due to appear in Cyno’s second story quest, so let’s look at what we know about him.

If you’re caught up with the Sumeru story and Genshin Impact Cyno’s first quest, you’ll know there’s some very interesting backstory going on with him and the priest Hermanubis. While the story will surely unfold in the next update, we do know that Cyno is affected by Hermanubis’ power, and it appears that it also affects Sethos.

Genshin Impact Sethos release date

Despite his story appearance, Sethos is not due to release in version 4.6. Sethos will release in the first half version 4.7, alongside Genshin Impact’s Clorinde.

What do we know about Sethos’s build?

Sethos wields a bow and uses the electro element. He appears to be an on-field DPS, with a mechanic that sees him use energy to charge up shots.

During the 4.7 livestream, it’s noted that Sethos scales off elemental mastery. Therefore, ahead of his release, we recommend a set of Gilded Dreams artifacts to bolster this stat. As Sethos is a damage dealer, a bow with crit rate, crit damage, or attack stats should fit him nicely.

What we do know for sure is his voice actor is Zeno Robinson, who plays Junpei in Persona 3 Reload.
