Genshin Impact Bennett Build Guide

1. Bennett Genshin Impact Overview

An orphan discovered by an elderly adventurer as a baby, Bennett was raised in Mondstadt's Adventurers' Guild. He is the one and only member of "Benny's Adventure Team," as everyone else left the team after experiencing the constant misfortune that follows him.


  • Provides powerful ATK buff and healing.
  • Can easily apply pyro to set up reactions.
  • Chargeable and spammable Elemental Skill.


  • Fully charged Elemental Skill outside of Burst field causes knockback.
  • C6 Not Recommended for Characters with Infusion

2. Bennett Constellations and Talent Priority


Bennett's constellations are powerful, and due to his nature of being a 4 star, players should be able to get them eventually. Amongst them, C1 is probably the most important level. Players need it to get the extra attack boost and more effective healing.

  • C1: Fantastic Voyage's ATK increase no longer has an HP restriction, and gains an additional 20% of Bennett's Base ATK.

Afterward, players only need to get to C5 for the extra scaling on Bennett's Elemental Burst.

Bennett is a character that focuses on his Burst alone.

Be wary when activating Bennett's C6 Constellation, as it will convert melee characters' attacks into Pyro inside Bennett's Burst. This can be a problem if players want to run Bennett with other characters who already have infusion or rely on their own Element to deal damage. Overall, it is best to leave Bennett at C5.

Talent Priority

With most of Bennett's kit based on his Elemental Burst, players need to max it immediately if possible. Bennett's skill and normal attacks are of fairly low priority - it is possible to just ignore them altogether.

3. How to use Bennett effectively?

Support the Party with Elemental Burst

Bennett's Elemental Burst is a fantastic support ability that heals the active character in the AoE and boosts his attack. Always cast it first before starting your combo.

ATK increase is based on Bennett's Base ATK

The bonus attack from Bennett's Burst is based on his Total Base ATK (Character Base ATK + Weapon Base ATK). This does not benefit from any increase in ATK stats from Artifacts.

Bennett Healer
Bennett's burst allows him to be splashed into all Genshin Impact teams.

Therefore, players should focus on other stats such as Energy Recharge or HP% on Bennett's artifacts.

Be careful when charging Elemental Skill

At full charge, Bennett's Elemental Skill causes him to be knocked backward. This can be a problem especially if players are fighting on high terrains.

Try to negate this effect by using his skill inside the AoE of Fantastic Voyage.

5. What are the best teams for Bennett?

Diluc + Bennett Vaporize team

  • Diluc + Xingqiu + Bennett + Sucrose

This is a lineup geared toward dolphin or F2p players, as all other characters except for Diluc are 4 stars. Xingqiu is the main support of the team, enabling Diluc's powerful skill and burst to trigger Vaporize with his Rainswords.

Xingqiu is the best Hydro support in the game.

Bennett provides heal and ATK boost while Sucrose increases Diluc's reaction damage, which is his main source of DPS. Players can replace Sucrose with Kazuha, but Xingqiu and Bennett are alreaedy the most optimal characters.

Raiden National team

  • Raiden + Xiangling + Xingqiu + Bennett

Raiden is probably the best Archon released to date, with the ability to perform great in every role. Her team is currently the most used lineup in the first half of floor 12. This is also one of the easiest teams to build, with the currently running banner being Raiden.

Raiden is one of the strongest characters in the game.

The damage of this team mainly comes from Xiangling's Pyronado spam and Xingqiu's rain swords, which trigger Vaporize repeatedly. Raiden is there to provide buffs to the whole team's burst and allow them to spam. Bennett is the main healer + support of the team with heal and ATK buff.
