Genshin Impact’s Bennett is the last remaining member of Benny’s Adventure Team, as the other members have left over time due to his bad luck. Despite the constant troubles that follow him around, Bennett remains optimistic and takes all the bad things life has thrown at him head-on.
This sword-wielding pyro character is one of the best support characters in the game. With help from our Genshin Impact Bennett guide, you’ll find the best weapons and artifacts to use, a breakdown of all his skills, and a list of what it’s going to cost you to ascend him fully for a sweet energy recharge boost.

The best Genshin Impact Bennett build
Bennett is the best pyro support character in the game due to his amazing elemental burst skill. We recommend using him in a team with a second pyro character like Genshin Impact’s Klee for pyro elemental resonance, which boosts attack.
Which weapon should you use?
Both of the weapons below are suitable for Bennett; however, we recommend the Skyward Blade over Festering Desire.
|Skyward Blade||Critical hit rate is increased by 4%. Bennett gains Skypiercing Might when an elemental burst is used, this increases movement and attack speed by 10% and increases the damage of normal and charged attacks by 20% for 12 seconds|
|Festering Desire||Elemental skill damage is increased by 16% and elemental skill crit rate by 6%|
Which artifact set should you use?
Our number one pick for Bennett in a support role is a full set of Noblesse Oblige artifacts. The Gladiator’s Finale set focuses more on improving his DPS.
|Noblesse Oblige||Two equipped: Elemental burst damage is increased by 20%
Four equipped: Elemental bursts increase all party members’ attack by 20% for 12 seconds. This cannot stack
|Gladiator’s Finale||Two equipped: Attack is increased by 18%
Four equipped: If the wielder of this artifact set uses a sword, claymore, or polearm, their normal attack damage is increased by 35%
