How to Beat the Setekh Wenut

Hit the Floating Anemo Orbs

Genshin - Attack the Windbite Bullets

When the boss floats and creates large floating Anemo orbs, you will need to take down at least 2 of these bullets with any elements that react with Anemo to bring down the Setekh Wenut from its floating state.

When downed, the boss' elemental resistances based on the elements reacted get lowered. This is your best DPS window, so you should save your damaging combo until this moment! Using a Bow character to easily eliminate these bullets is recommended.

Elemental Reactions Guide

Attack when the boss is stationary

Genshin - Setekh Wenut Half-Circle Attack

Attacks such as its stationary half-circle cleave are great windows for you to do an extended amount of burst damage before it burrows. Find these timings wisely before using your resources!

Best Teams to Defeat Setekh Wenut

Best Teams Compositions for Setekh Wenut

Your team must be able to deal heavy bursts of damage in a short amount of time to beat the Setekh Wenut. Teams centered around characters like Ayato and Yoimiya whose damage source is not locked in Elemental Bursts are recommended.

Ranged teams that can follow-up damage from afar is recommended especially because the boss is highly mobile. When the boss floats, having your ranged characters hit the floating Anemo orbs with Pyro, Hydro, Cryo, or Electro easily downs it!

Characters whose damage source is spammable are also best to chunk up its HP before the boss burrows again. Although most of these characters are melee, because their major damaging ability is on their Elemental Skill, you won't need to worry about energy!

Best Elements to Beat Setekh Wenut

Recommended Elements
Cryo ImageElectro ImageHydro ImagePyro Image

The Setekh Wenut is weak to any Anemo reactive elements this means that if you attack the Windbite Bullets with Pyro, Electro, Cryo, or Hydro it will trigger the Setekh Wenut's paralyzed state!

This 10-second paralysis gives you a chance to deal as much DMG as possible to defeat it! Proceed to use the same Elemental type as the bow user to cause as much DMG as you can. The boss' Elemental RES to that element will go down significantly in this state.

Have a Bow Character in the party

We recommend having at least one Bow character in the party to make the boss fight easier to deal with. There is a slight chance that the Anemo energy will be low on the ground, but having a bow will make this progress faster.

Setekh Wenut Attack Patterns

Anemo Windbite Bullets

While floating, the boss charges up five balls of Anemo energy. These are converted heavy Windbite Bullet attacks, with a large Area of Effect, if not immediately destroyed!

Anemo Beam

A beam of Anemo power will come straight from the Setekh Wenut's mouth and blast towards your character. It switches its attack from vertical to horizontal, so keep an eye out to dodge accordingly.

Anemo Honing Bullets

Another AoE attack from the Seketh Wenut. When the boss rises from the ground, it releases four rounds of three windbite bullets from its back to target your character. It moves in a U-shape before converging at your character's location and deals Anemo DMG.

Anemo Blast

The Setekh Wenut will charge up on Anemo energy. Then, it releases a blast of Anemo Windbite Bullets towards your character's last location.

Anemo Sweep

After gathering Anemo energy, this Wenut boss will slam itself towards the ground and sweep across your character's last location.

Upward Strike

The Setekh Wenut will bury itself in the ground and hide. An AoE ring will appear on the ground before the boss will rise up from the ground and cause Anemo DMG.

Adventurer Handbook Description
An eyeless predator that dwells within the depths of the desert and uses sound and vibrations to seek out its prey. They sometimes take on the forms very similar to those of plants, and some say that this is because they were once scions of the lord of plants. Others say that this is their way of fooling their prey to seek fruits or food in their deadly shade.
