Bennett was an orphan who was discovered and raised by an old adventurer in Mondstadt's Adventurers' Guild. He is always followed by bad luck. This caused him to be the only remaining member of Benny's Adventure Team since everyone else has left after a series of unfortunate events.

While being plagued by bad luck all the time, Bennett's optimism and hard work allow him to create different solutions for his problem.

Elemental Skill: Passion Overload

  • Press: Perform a quick sword swing for Pyro DMG.
  • Short Hold: Perfect two sword swings for Pyro DMG.
  • Long Hold: A three-stage sword swing dealing Pyro DMG, with the final hit launching Bennett and his targets away.

Bennett is one of the top-tier Utility characters in Genshin Impact with fast healing and ATK boost.

However, his Elemental Burst is what makes him valuable. It provides healing for your active character up to 70%. If your active character has 70% or more, they will receive a damage bonus based on the base damage of Bennett. Note that the skill only uses Bennett's base damage, meaning damage from Artifacts won't add to this buff.

Bennett's Elemental Burst heals equal 6% of his Max HP per second, making him one of the fastest healers in the game. And when your character reaches 70% HP, they are going to get a nice damage boost equal to half of Bennett's base attack.

With Constellation 6, Bennett's Elemental Burst will always provide an ATK buff regardless of the character's HP, plus a 15% Pyro damage bonus for Claymore, Polearm, or Sword-wielding characters.

Bennett's build guide to max out his potential.

Recommended Weapons

Bennett's Elemental Burst takes into account the ATK of your weapon so you would want him the weapon with the highest ATK stats. As for the sub stats, it is best to get extra Energy Recharge you you can use your Elemental Burst more often. HP is also a really good choice for the sub stat you already have enough Energy Recharge from Artifact.

Therefore, the best weapons for Bennett are Aquila Favonia, Lion's Roar, The Flute, or Black Sword.

Recommended Artifacts

The Noblesse Oblige Artifact set is the most suitable set for Bennett as it can even boost the ATK of your party even further. Here are the details:

  • 2-piece effect: Elemental Burst DMG +20%
  • 4-piece effect: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

As for the main stats on your Artifacts, you should focus on getting more HP/ HP percentage and Energy Recharge.

The Noblesse Oblige Artifact set is the best Artifact set for Bennett.


All Bennet's Constellations are great except for Constellation 6, which you might need to consider a little bit before you decide to activate it. Bennet's Constellation 6 converts your character's attacks inside Fantastic Voyage into Pyro, which might cause drawbacks in many fights or with different party combinations.

So unless you are using Bennett exclusively for a Diluc team then you might want to put a hold on Bennett's Constellation 6. The most important Constellation for Bennet is Constellation 1, which removes the HP restriction of his ATK bonus.
