Best Artifacts

By far, the best Artifact set for Sethos is Wanderer’s Troupe. This is because his attacks scale with Elemental Mastery and he can dish out instant Charged Attacks, leaving him with better damage results while having a 4-piece Wanderer’s Troupe set equipped. This set is attainable from the majority of bosses or Domain Reliquaries in the Spiral Abyss.

  • 2-piece: +80 Elemental Mastery.
  • 4-piece: Increases Charged Attack DMG by 35% if the character uses a Catalyst or a Bow.

Besides Wanderer’s Troupe, you could always go for a set like Thundering Fury to deal extra Electro DMG or Gilded Dreams which also improves Sethos’ Elemental Mastery. While you can obtain Thundering Fury Artifacts from the Midsummer Courtyard Domain, the Gilded Dreams set is from the Spire of Solitary Enlightenment Domain.

  • Thundering Fury
    • 2-piece: +15% Electro DMG Bonus
    • 4-piece: Increases damage caused by Overloaded, Electro-Charged, Superconduct, and Hyperbloom by 40%, and the DMG Bonus conferred by Aggravate is increased by 20%. When Quicked or the aforementioned Elemental Reactions are triggered, Elemental Skill CD is decreased by one second. Can only occur once every 0.8 seconds.
  • Gilded Dreams
    • 2-piece: +80 Elemental Mastery.
    • 4-piece: Within eight seconds of triggering an Elemental Reaction, the character equipping this will obtain buffs based on the Elemental Type of the other party members. ATK is increased by 14% for each member whose Elemental Type is the same as the equipping character, and EM is increased by 50 for every member with a different Elemental Type. Each of the buffs will count up to three characters. This effect can be triggered once every eight seconds and even when not on the field.

Best weapons

Sethos can use a range of bows to his advantage, but only a few have skills and stats that can improve his build to the best effect. Hunter’s Path is probably the best out of the choices below since he not only gains a boost in Elemental DMG, but his Charged Attack DMG increases by a whopping 160% of his EM.

Sethos’ kit is built around Charged Attacks and EM, making this a perfect bow to wield. Of course, if you can’t get your hands on Hunter’s Path there are always the three other choices listed below that can improve his build.

Best Sethos team comps in Genshin Impact

With reactions such as Hyperbloom and Aggravate in Sethos’ arsenal, having team members who complement his abilities will make for high damage and survivability. Here are the best team comps for Sethos to help elevate those reactions and abilities.

Best Hyperbloom team comp

Main DPSSub DPSSupport 1Support 2

Sethos and Raiden as the two DPS users can trigger Hyperbloom whenever it reacts with Nahida’s Dendro Cores. Sethos can activate Hyperbloom using his Empowered Normal Attacks.

Then there’s Furina who can create Electro-Charged reactions with her Hydro attacks, as well as create Dendro Cores using the Bloom reaction with Nahida’s Dendro attacks.

Best Aggravate team comp

Main DPSSub DPSSupport 1Support 2

Creating the Aggravate reaction is by applying Electro DMG to Quickened enemies, who can become Quickened by receiving Electro and Dendro DMG. With that in mind, having Baizhu on this team isn’t just for healing and buffing, but also for helping create that Aggravate reaction.

Once enemies are Quickened, Sethos or Fischl can step in to apply Electro DMG to Aggravate them. We also have Kazuha here for extra AoE crowd control damage and for buffing Elemental DMG.

Now that you have the best DPS build and team comps for Sethos in Genshin Impact, you may also pull Clorinde since she came with Version 4.7 as well and is an excellent 5-Star Electro sword user.
