Genshin Impact Bennett build

Check out our recommendations for the best Genshin Impact’s Bennett build, along with his skills, constellations, and ascension materials. Bouken da bouken!

Genshin Impact’s Bennett is an accident-prone yet adorable adventurer from Mondstadt, and currently the sole member of ‘Benny’s Adventure Team’, as the previous members all left after experiencing the constant misfortune that seems to follow him. Luckily, it looks like there are plenty of new applicants considering just how valuable Benny is in battle, and, in this Genshin Bennett build guide, we intend on showing you why, along with how to make best use of this plucky pyro wielder.

We can also help out with other pyro characters, so head over to our Genshin Impact Yanfei and Genshin Impact Yoimiya 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 and use to pull on the Genshin Impact next banner.

What’s the best Genshin Bennett build?

Bennett is easily one of the most sought-after support units in the game, capable of not only healing his allies, but also offering substantial attack buffs and generating a decent amount of particles. As such, most top teams revolve around having a well-built Bennett, and many five-star damage dealers fight over who gets him on their team. Looks like Bennett’s adventure team has more than enough members these days!

To sing more of his praises, he doesn’t require much field time, his attack boost is unrivaled in the game, he’s versatile and universal, he doesn’t rely on any specific characters to perform well, and he has an extremely accessible roster of artifacts and weapons to choose from. He has noteworthy pyro application, is capable of near-constant damage dealing and healing, and is very easy to play.

He has very few downsides outside of his lack of AoE outside of his elemental burst, and the fact that his burst field is relatively restrictive – you want to stay inside that sucker as much as possible, which can be tricky with large groups unless you’ve got someone on the team with grouping capabilities. Also, choosing to upgrade to C6 is not always the best idea depending on how you intend to use him, as its pyro infusion can disrupt elemental interactions in certain teams.

However, regardless of his very small flaws, Bennett is honestly invaluable. Every player deserves a well-build Benny on their team, and that’s what we’re going to help you with today.

What’s the best Genshin Bennett weapon?

In his intended support role, the best weapon for Bennett is Mistsplitter, due to its high base attack. It also offers some nice crit if you’re hoping for Benny to dish out some damage when he’s on the field. Freedom Sworn is also a great choice as its buffs stack with Benny’s burst, adding to your overall team damage.

If you’re looking for an option to help an energy hungry build, or you’re hoping to minimise Bennett’s field-time, Skyward Blade is a good option with decent base attack, and likely one of the more accessible five-star weapons for F2P players.

When it comes to four-star options, Alley Flash has the highest base attack and is a good budget option for maximising Benny’s attack buff. Alternatively, Prototype Rancour is also a high base attack and is very F2P friendly, though you’ll need to make up Bennett’s energy recharge with his artifacts.

Weapon Effect
Mistsplitter Reforged Base stat: crit damage
Skill: gain a 12% elemental damage bonys for all elements and receive the might of the Mistsplitter’s Emblem. At stack levels 1/2/3, Mistsplitter’s Emblem provides a 8/16/28% elemental damage bonus for the wielder’s elemental type. The wielder gains one stack of Mistsplitter’s Emblem when a normal attack deals elemental damage (stack lasts five seconds), upon casting an elemental burst (stack lasts ten seconds), and when their energy is less than 100% (stack disappears when their energy is full). Each stack’s duration is calculated independently
Freedom Sworn Base stat: elemental mastery
Skill: increases damage by 10%. When the wielder triggers elemental reaction, they gain a Sigil of Rebellion. This effect can trigger once every 0.5 seconds, even when the character is not on the field. When they possess two sigils, both are consumed and all nearby party members obtain ‘Millennial Movement: Song of Resistance’ for 12 seconds, which increases normal, charged, and plunging attack damage by 16%, and attack by 20%. Once this effect triggers, you don’t gain another sigil for 20 seconds. Buffs of the same type don’t stack
Skyward Blade Base stat: energy recharge
Skill: critical hit rate is increases 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
Alley Flash Base stat: elemental mastery
Skill: increases damage dealt by the wielder by 12%. Taking damage disables this effect for five seconds
Prototype Rancour Base stat: physical damage
Skill: on hit, normal or charged attacks increase attack and defence by 4% for six seconds. Max four stacks, effect can only occur once every 0.3 seconds

What are the best Genshin Bennett artifacts?

Noblesse Oblige is Bennett’s go-to support set, boosting Bennett’s buffing capabilities by providing an additional team-wide attack boost when he uses his burst. There’s very little reason to farm for anything else.

However, if you already have a character on the team with a full set of Noblesse Oblige, you can go with a four-piece set of Instructor, which also gives a team-wide buff that increases everyone’s elemental mastery. However, this buff can be difficult to activate depending on your team rotation, so we generally recommend sticking with NO where possible.

Artifact set Effect
Noblesse Oblige Two equipped: Elemental burst damage increases by 20%
Four equipped: Elemental bursts increase all party members’ attack by 20% for 12 seconds. This cannot stack
Instructor Two equipped: increases elemental mastery by 80
Four equipped: upon triggering an elemental reaction, increases all party members’ elemental mastery by 120 for eight seconds

Artifact stat recommendations

When it comes to stats, stacking attack won’t increase his buff as it relies on his flat attack (i.e. Bennett’s base attack + his sword). Instead, you should focus on increasing his HP through main stats to maximise his healing, and increase his energy recharge through sub-stats until he can comfortably burst off cooldown in your chosen team.

If you’re struggling to hit energy recharge requirements through sub-stats, you can give him an energy recharge goblet instead of HP.

Main stats

  • Sands – energy recharge (if you’re struggling to hit requirements), or HP%
  • Goblet – HP%
  • Circlet – HP%


  • Energy recharge (prioritise until you hit requirements)
  • HP% > flat HP
  • Elemental mastery (in reaction teams)
  • Crit rate/crit damage (for personal damage)
