Ability Tips

Bennett’s EB grants you a pyro status as long as your characters are within his burst AoE (Cryo in specific, since Pyro > Cryo).

For that, cast EB with Bennett, switch to the character imbued with Cryo and walk on Bennett’s Burst field

Upon entering burst field, the Pyro status will continuously imbue you with Pyro, reacting with other elements on you and eventually removing them.

Gameplay Tips

Regarding Weapon Choices:

The Alley Flash: The Alley Flash has the potential to beat Iron Sting [R5], but this requires the passive to be up, whenever damaged, your passive is disabled for 5 seconds and you could be losing out a lot of damage, especially if you are constantly being damaged.

Regarding Artifact Sets:

Crimson Witch of Flames (4): This set works best with Chongyun on the same team for consistent Melt.

Assuming a Melt/Vaporize team, Crimson Witch (4) is your best set for damage.

Pyro Damage Bonus will always be the best for cup. The combo for the highest Melt/Vaporize damage is The Black Sword and EM sand. [R1] Iron Sting and EM sand turns out to have diminishing returns and isn’t as good, but [R2+] Iron Sting is a different question because better buffs. (Assuming you don’t have a whale build’s CR/CD stats, in which case Aquila with EM sands is just flat out better.)

Thundering Fury (4): This set works best if paired with Electro supports such as Beidou and Fischl/Lisa, as it allows Bennett to accomplish 2 things:

  • 1) Rapidly spam E for raw pyro damage + overload
  • 2) Generate tons of energy for the entire team.

Thundering Fury (4) also allows Bennett to quickly break the shields of the Abyss Lectors in the Spiral Abyss. This comp is generally only recommended for those with Beidou on C2/C6.

It’s worth noting that the main-stat artifacts you want to farm for 4-TF Bennett varies from the main-stat artifacts you’d normally go for in other buildsInstead of ATK/EM, Pyro, and Crit, you’d instead want to go for EM/Pyro/EM on a 4-TF Bennett. As such, this also means weapons that have EM substats such as Iron sting take priority over other swords.

It is also worth noting that with 4 TF, Primordial Jade Cutter is able to overtake MIstsplitter Reforged due to its massive Crit Rate% substat, which allows you to vape consistently despite the lack of Crit Dmg/Crit Rate subs in your artifacts. This assumes that your EM mainstat pieces (sands, goblet, and circlet) lack Crit Rate substats. However, in the rare occasion that your EM pieces manage to roll plenty of Crit subs, Mistsplitter easily overtakes Jade Cutter.

Recommended amount of ER%: 130-150%. Worth noting that with Thundering Fury (4), you have a lot more leeway when it comes to ER.

Gameplay Tips

A Burst Support Bennett completely ignores the need for excess healing potential and is aimed for people who prefer to squeeze out more damage instead.

On this build, Bennett is built with offensive stats like ATK%, Pyro Damage, and Crit stats while having a good amount of Energy Recharge to burst off cooldown.

Prioritize Energy Recharge before offensive stats if you cannot cast your Elemental Burst off cooldown.

Gameplay Tips

Heals from his Elemental Burst scale off of HP, while his damage buff from Burst only scales with your base ATK (Character Base ATK stat and Weapon Base ATK stat)

DO NOT increase Bennett’s constellation from 5 to 6 unless he is in a Pyro team and you know what you’re doing. This is because Bennett turns all of your melee on-field character’s Auto Attacks into Pyro, which means that Bennett will lose a lot of his team comp potential.

Although Bennett is usually considered a healer, he already heals a lot even without necessarily building for HP%, if you find it unnecessary to build for HP%, you can consider building him as a Sub DPS.

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Mistsplitter Reforged, Aquila Favonia: These weapons have the highest Base ATK in the game which is why it is ranked quite high. It is assuming you have enough Energy Recharge so you still can burst off cooldown for the maximum ATK buff.
  • Freedom-Sworn: In comps where Bennett can reliably trigger reactions (and thus trigger this sword’s passive), the buffs provided by this weapon will be stronger than Aquila Favonia.
  • The Alley Flash: This weapon currently has the highest Base ATK for a 4 star weapon (even more Base ATK than some 5 stars like Skyward Blade).
  • Prototype Rancour: This weapon has one of the highest Base ATK for a 4 Star weapon (and this is also a weapon you could craft from the Blacksmith)
