Bennett is a 4-star Pyro character in Genshin Impact. He was an orphan discovered by an elderly adventurer as a baby. Bennett was raised in Mondstadt’s Adventurers’ Guild.

These are the best artifact sets for Bennett in the game.
2-piece set: Elemental Burst DMG +20%
4-piece set: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members’ ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.

As we can see, Bennett has several good weapons available, even if you’re a free-to-play player. Aquila Favonia is the best in slot weapon for Bennett because of its high base attack. Skyward Blade is also a really good 5-star sword for Bennett because he requires a lot of energy recharge.
Festering Desire was an event reward weapon that may not be available to newer players, but it’s a good option. Prototype Rancour is the best free-to-play option for Bennett because of its high base attack and passive. The Alley Flash is an excellent option because for a 4-star weapon, it has a really high base attack. Then Favonius Sword is great for its high energy recharge, and it can generate a lot of energy for your Bennett and the entire team.
4-piece Noblesse Oblige
Flower, Feather, ATK% or Energy Recharge or HP%, Pyro DMG Bonus%, Crit Rate or DMG%
4-piece Noblesse Oblige or 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flames
Flower, Feather, ATK%, Pyro DMG Bonus%, Crit Rate or DMG%
Bennett is considered an universal support in Genshin Impact. He can fit into any team that needs a healer and party buffer. Bennett is pretty good for Pyro teams because he can act as a battery, and it will increase the Pyro damage of all your party members. Because of Bennet’s short cooldown on his elemental skill and burst, he can get back his elemental burst pretty quick if Bennett is stacked with a lot of energy recharge.
Every single Main DPS character can utilize Bennett’s burst because it will buff your entire party’s attack. And the characters can pull out some great damage numbers if they are inside Bennetts’ burst circle.
Best Team Comp
Bennett can be slotted into every team comp in Genshin Impact, and we are not joking about it. Every single ‘Meta’ teams require Bennett as the main support. Current fan-favorite National Team (Party of 4-stars) where Bennett plays a significant role. Main DPS characters like Eula, Raiden Shogun, Ganyu, and Ayaka need Bennett in their party for maximum damage output.
Here we listed some of the popular team comps for Bennett.
- Raiden Shogun, Bennett, Xingqiu, Xiangling
- Tartaglia, Xiangling, Bennett, Kazuha
- Xiangling, Bennett, Chongyun, Xingqiu
- Ganyu, Bennett, Kazuha, Zhongli
Bennett’s Sixth Constellation Controversy
While Bennett is a top-tier support in Genshin, there is a slight controversy around him. Being a 4-star character, his constellations are pretty easy to acquire. His C1 is arguably the best constellation in the game, but his C6 is unwanted by many players.
Bennett’s sixth constellation, ‘Fire Ventures with Me’ is questionable in the game. His sixth constellation provides a unique buff: Sword, Claymore, or Polearm-wielding characters inside Fantastic Voyage‘s (Bennett’s Elemental Burst) radius gain a 15% Pyro DMG Bonus, and their weapons are infused with Pyro.
The extra 15% Pyro DMG Bonus is great for Pyro-oriented teams, like Klee, Yoimiya, and Diluc teams. But the rest of the Main DPS characters cannot correctly utilize Bennett’s elemental burst. Like Keqing, Eula, and Ayaka, who rely on their normal and charged attacks for damage.
This constellation is controversial because Eula, Ayaka, and Keqing teams rely on normal attacks, and his sixth constellation ruins it. It is acceptable for Pyro-oriented teams, but we recommend not activating his sixth constellation for future characters that may require Bennett.
