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.

We can also help out with other pyro characters, so head over to our Genshin Impact Diluc and Genshin Impact Amber guides for suitable character builds. If you’re a bit low on primogems, we even have a handy Genshin Impact codes list so you can line your wallets with some extra currency.

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.

Both of the weapons below are suitable for Bennett; however, we recommend the Skyward Blade over Festering Desire.

Weapon Effect
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
