Best Bennett Genshin Impact Builds


Bennett is a four-star Pyro character in Genshin Impact. Lore-wise, he is considered the unluckiest character in the game. However, Bennett is also one of the best support characters in Genshin Impact. In fact, Bennett is a great, all-around character that can act as a support, healer, and pyro DPS at the same time. Below are some of the best artifacts and weapons you can use on Bennett in order to maximize his kit.

Bennett's Talents

Strike of Fortune

Bennett can perform up to five consecutive attacks.

Strike of Fortune is Bennett's normal and charged attack. Bennett will perform up to five strikes and using his charged attack will consume stamina.

Passion Overload

The final attack of Passion Overload will cause Bennett to be knocked back.

Passion Overload is Bennett's Elemental Skill. Pressing this elemental skill will cause Bennett to perform one quick strike using Pyro damage. Holding Bennett's elemental skill will cause him to charge. The first level of Bennett's elemental skill will cause him to strike twice using Pyro damage. If you hold it longer, you can get to level 2, which will allow him to attack 3 times using Pyro damage. However, the last attack will launch both Bennett and the Enemy into the air.

Fantastic Voyage

Fantastic Voyage can rapidly regenerate your Health to 70%.

Fantastic Voyage is Bennett's, Elemental Burst. Bennett will perform a small plunging attack using Pyro damage and creates a huge field. This field will heal the character if they are below 70%. If the character has 70% or more HP, they will instead get an additional ATK bonus, based on Bennett's base ATK. This field will also apply the Pyro element to characters that are currently in the field.

Rekindle

Rekindle allows Bennett to constantly use his Elemental Skill.

Rekindle is a passive that is unlocked on Ascension Phase 1. This passive decreases the cooldown of Passion Overload by 20%.

Fearnaught

Fearnaught decreases the cooldown of all the characters in the Inspiration Field.

Fearnaught is a passive that is unlocked on Ascension Phase 4. This passive will decrease your cooldown by 50% and remove the knockback on Bennett's Level 2 Elemental Skill if you are inside the field created using Passion Overload and Fantastic Voyage.

It Should Be Safe...

You need fewer hours if you use Bennett on an expedition in Mondstadt.

It Should Be Safe... is Bennett's utility skill. If you dispatch Bennett on an expedition in Mondstadt, the time needed is decreased by 25%.

Best Builds for Bennett

Elemental Burst/Healer Weapons

One of the best ways to build Bennett is by building him as a Healer and Support. His Fantastic Voyage can only heal up to 70%, but it is one of the fastest healing skills in the game.

The Primordial Jade Cutter is introduced in Version 1.3.

Whenever your attack CRITs, you will get a 60% chance to generate Elemental Particles that will recover 6 energy for the character on the field. This effect can only happen every 12 seconds.

Pyro DPS weapons

Bennett also works best as a Pyro sub-DPS. The low cooldown on his elemental skill allows him to constantly apply the Pyro element on enemies.

Aquila Favonia

Aquila Favonia can heal your character while dealing damage.

If you would like to build Bennett as a Pyro DPS or Physical DPS, Aquila Favonia is a good choice. This five-star weapon has a Physical damage bonus sub-stat, and it has the effect called Falcon's Defiance. This weapon increases your attack by 20%.  Whenever you take damage, you can trigger the effect called the Falcon of the West. This regenerate your HP based on 100% of your attack. You will also deal 200% damage based on your attack on surrounding enemies.

Festering Desire

Festering Desire can be obtained in the Chalk Prince and Dragon event.

The Festering Desire is another good weapon for both a Pyro DPS or Support/Healer build. However, this weapon can only be obtained at the Chalk Prince and the Dragon event. The last event ran from December 23, 2020, to January 5, 2021. If you missed that event, you will need to wait for a rerun to get the Festering Desire sword. The sword has an Energy Recharge sub-stat and it increases the damage of your elemental skill by 16% and the crit rate of your elemental skill by 6%.

Team Compositions

Bennett is an incredible support character and can fit in any team. However, below are some of the best team composition ideas for Bennett.

High-Investment Team

Bennett is good support to multiple Pyro DPS characters.

This High-Investment Team consists of Diluc, Ganyu, and Venti. Diluc will act as your main DPS and activates the Double Pyro resonance which increases your attack by 25%. Ganyu can easily trigger the melt reaction and work as a Sub-DPS whenever Diluc is out of the field. Venti will act as an anemo support, pulling in all your enemies in one place. Lastly, Bennett will act as your support and healer.

Geo Tartaglia Party

Geo Resonance can increase the damage potential of all party members.

Putting both Zhongli and Albedo together will activate the Double Geo resonance which increases the strength of your shield by 15%. Whenever you are protected with a shield, you get a damage increase of 15. Then when you deal damage to enemies while having a shield, you will decrease their Geo Resistance by 20%. This combo increases the damage capability of all your party members. Tartaglia will act as your main DPS in this team, and Bennett can act as both a Pyro burst support and healer.

The National Team

The National Team is a low-investment, high damage output team.

The National Team is called the National team because they are considered the strongest 4-stars in the game. Even though the team only consists of 4-star characters, they can easily clear the toughest abyss floor when built right. Xiangling will act as the main DPS of the team, and Bennett will act as the battery for Xiangling. Xingqiu can constantly activate the Vaporize reaction because of his skills.

Adding Chongyun will allow you to constantly freeze your enemies when you pair him with Xingqiu. You can then apply the Pyro element to get a Melt reaction, giving you more damage. The only downside to this team would be needing to constantly swap in between characters to deal consistent damage.

Summary

Bennett and Razor in the Windblume Festival cutscene.

Bennett is considered one of the best support and healer characters in Genshin Impact. This 4-star pyro character is incredibly versatile, and you can build him as both a healer and burst support. Bennett's Elemental Burst is not only the fastest healing skill in the game, but it also boosts your attack damage.  However, whenever you are using Bennett's Elemental skill, be aware of the knockback caused by his fully charged passion overload.
