Genshin Impact players hate the new Spiral Abyss boss, the Setekh Wenut!
Genshin Impact does not have a lot of end game content as players can test out their new teams and character builds in a challenging environment. For this, players turn to the Spiral Abyss, which is a special field in which various bosses and enemies rotate and challenge players to clear certain challenges in a certain amount of time.
In Spiral Abyss, players traverse many floors made up of six different “rooms”. Each room presents a set of enemies that must be defeated, and a challenge to overcome while defeating these enemies. This challenge is usually a quick challenge, tasking players with defeating all enemies in a certain amount of time. This means that when HoYoverse decides to put certain bosses in the Spiral Abyss, players aren’t having a great time.
In version 3.5 of Spiral Abyss, players were met with one of the most frustrating challenges of the game to date. Setekh Wenut is a world leader who players called “Unbearable” And “Poor head design. In short, Setekh Wenut has an attack pattern that consists of digging underground, before emerging for some very short periods. These short moments are the only time you can attack Setekh Wenut.
The main problem with this boss in Spiral Abyss is how each experience is a time-based challenge. To master the run and get all the rewards, you need to clear each floor in about 3 minutes. But Setekh Wenut is problematic because it is not targeted for the majority of the combat, leaving you with a difficult and frustrating experience. This problem is compounded because the Spiral Abyss version of the boss has 2m HP and 55% resistance, which is much higher than the World Boss version.
Players have not responded kindly to this boss, with many posts and Tweets of players and Content creators Criticize this president and the The spiral abyss cycle. Many also point to HoYoverse’s tendency to create bosses that rely heavily on immunity, rather than other mechanisms.
