Genshin Impact Sethos banner and abilities

When is the Genshin Impact Sethos banner release date? As Sethos is the upcoming four-star character arriving in the anime game, he won’t be getting his own banner. Don’t worry, we expect him to feature on either (or both) of the five-star characters he arrives alongside.

Sethos is one of the new and upcoming Genshin Impact characters who we should be seeing very soon alongside the two five-star characters, Clorinde and Sigewinne. He has been officially announced by Hoyoverse, so it’s likely he’ll be in the next update. He is an Electro bow user from the Sumeru deserts, and has already appeared in Cyno’s 4.6 questline, as well as the 4.6 livestream.

While we don’t have a firm release date for Sethos, it is likely he’ll either appear on Clorinde or Sigewinne’s banners in either the first or second phase of the upcoming Genshin Impact 4.7 update. Thanks to leaks from Honey Hunter World, we’ve already got a detailed look at his abilities.

Genshin Impact Sethos abilities

Normal attack – Royal Reed Bowmanship

  • Normal attack: Peforms up to three consecutive shots with a bow.
  • Charged attack: Performs a more precise Aimed Shot with increased damage. While aiming, the power of Electro accumulates on the arrowhead before the arrow is fired, which has different effects based on the time charged.
    • Charge level one: Fires off an arrow carrying the power of lightning that deals Electro damage.
    • Charge level two: Fires off a Shadowpiercing Shot which pierces enemies, dealing Electro damage in its path. After the Shadowpierce Shot is charged, Sethos cannot move.
  • Plunging attack: Fires off a volley of arrows in mid-air before falling and striking the ground, dealing AoE damage on impact.

Elemental Skill – Ancient Rite: The Thundering Sands

Gathers the might of thunder, dealing AoE Electro damage to enemies in front and quickly retreating. If this attack triggers Electro-Charged, Superconduct, Overloaded, Quicken, Aggravate, Hyperbloom, or Electro Swirl reactions, Sethos recovers a certain amount of Elemental Energy.

Elemental Burst – Secret Rite: The Twilight Shadowpiercer

Perform a secret rite, entering the Twilight Meditation state, during which Sethos’s normal attacks are converted into enemy piercing Dusk Bolts: these bolts deal Electro damage to enemies in their path, with damage increased based on Sethos’s Elemental Mastery. Damage dealt by Dusk Bolts is considered Charged Attack damage.
