What Is The Best Bennett Build In Genshin Impact?

Bennett is one of the most unlucky characters in Genshin Impact, with many members of the Adventurer's Guild keeping their distance from him to avoid disaster. Of course, that is just the lore of the game.

In reality, Bennett is one of the luckiest pulls a player can get when using Genshin Impact's Wish system.

A 4-Star Pyro Sword user, Bennett is the cream of the crop when it comes to supporting a party.

His damage output is pretty good, but his ability to heal and provide ATK buffs is why almost every good party composition includes him.

To use him to his best effect, build him with the following:

ARTIFACTS: Noblesse Oblige give Bennett the best buffs

Bennett's best build puts him in the role of a Pyro support, healing characters, and providing ATK bonuses with his Fantastic Voyage Elemental Burst.

To make Bennett able to pop the ability more frequently, it is important to focus on Energy Recharge, as well as his Base ATK.

A 4 piece Noblesse Oblige with a focus on Energy Recharge, HP%, and Healing Bonus start off a great Bennett build by giving him a 20% bonus to his Elemental Burst DMG and increasing party members' ATK by 20% for 12 seconds when his Elemental Burst is used.

This will help ensure Fantastic Voyage not only does more damage but also buffs the party.

With the correct combination of effects, this will also make Bennett's Energy Recharge much faster and make his healing more effective.

Bennett's constellations are all good, but Level 1, Level 2, Level 5, and Level 6 are the ones that really stand out.

Fantastic Voyage is what makes Bennett work so well, so any buff to it is worth its weight in gold.

Since Bennett is a 4-Star character, it is much easier to unlock constellations for him than it is for 5-Star characters, making it another reason he is such a great character overall.

While Bennett is frowned upon by other adventurers in-game, he is one of the most useful characters any party can have.
