Bennett Quick Guide

Updated for Version 3.4

Bennett is a 4-star Pyro Sword character that provides excellent support through his healing, ATK buff, battery capabilities, personal damage, and Pyro application.

The full-length guide (currently being updated) is available here.

New Content

Sapwood BladeBennett’s new 4-star Best-in-Slot free-to-play option. Its high Base ATK and decent ER substat allow Bennett to easily maximize his support potential. Its EM buff in Dendro teams is also appreciated.
Key of Khaj-NisutA new 5-star limited-banner Sword that gives a substantial boost to his HP and an average Base ATK stat. Although triggering its passive’s effect can be difficult in the first rotation, it can consistently provide an EM buff to his team from the second rotation onward. It’s a decent option for a healing-focused support build in reaction-based teams.
BurgeonWith the advent of Dendro, Bennett can act as either an off-field support or an on-field Pyro applicator to trigger Burgeon. See Teams for more information.
BurningBurning is generally a detriment to Dendro teams since it can interfere with sustained Dendro auras. For now, this Elemental Reaction can benefit only one or two specific teams. Burning teams are not covered in this Quick Guide.
YelanA limited 5-star Hydro Bow character who can fulfill similar roles to Xingqiu. While she lacks Xingqiu’s utility, she offers higher personal DPS thanks to her higher scalings and general DMG% buff. A potentially valuable asset in Bennett’s Reverse Vape teams.


Quickswap/Off-Field Support

Bennett primarily serves as a quickswap or off-field support. His Burst provides healing and a Flat ATK buff, and his Skill can serve as a battery and Pyro applicator with its short cooldown. In this role, he can be built as either a relatively low investment healer or a more invested support who deals good damage with his Skill and Burst. 

On-field DPS

While this Quick Guide primarily covers Bennett’s support playstyle, Bennett is also a potent on-field DPS in teams that focus on Vaporize, Melt, and Overloaded reactions. At Constellation 6, Bennett’s Normal Attacks can deal Pyro DMG and trigger even more Elemental Reactions. Nonetheless, the majority of his damage will stem from the repeated use of his Skill within his Burst.

Character Overview

Talent Priority

Burst > Skill >> Normal Attack

Bennett’s Elemental Burst should be prioritized regardless of playstyle since his ATK buff and healing scales with Talent level. Leveling Bennett’s Elemental Skill or Normal Attack is not required for a pure support playstyle, but his Elemental Skill can be useful for invested support and on-field DPS builds.


Normal Attack

Normal Attack | Strike of Fortune

Normal Attack
Performs up to 5 rapid strikes.

Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to unleash 2 rapid sword strikes.

Plunging Attack
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

A basic sequence of Sword attacks. Unless building Bennett as a niche on-field DPS at C6, it is not recommended to invest in Bennett’s Normal Attack Talent.

Elemental Skill

Elemental Skill | Passion Overload

Bennett puts all his fire and passion for adventuring into his sword.
Results may vary based on how fired up he is…

A single, swift flame strike that deals Pyro DMG.

Hold (Short)
Charges up, resulting in different effects when unleashed based on the Charge Level.

  • Level 1: Strikes twice, dealing Pyro DMG and launching opponents.
  • Level 2: Unleashes 3 consecutive attacks that deal impressive Pyro DMG, but the last attack triggers an explosion that launches both Bennett and the enemy.

Bennett takes no damage from being launched.

Simple but effective. This Skill’s low cooldown and unmatched Pyro Energy particle generation make it essential to batterying Bennett or one of his Pyro teammates.

Generally, it is better to use the Tap variation of this Skill. Bennett’s Level 2 Hold Skill is never recommended to use because its long charge time makes it an overall DPS loss. See Combos for further information.

Elemental Burst

Elemental Burst | Fantastic Voyage

Bennett performs a jumping attack that deals Pyro DMG, creating an Inspiration Field.

Inspiration Field

  • If the health of a character within the AoE is equal to or falls below 70%, their health will continuously regenerate. The amount of HP restored scales off Bennett’s Max HP.
  • If the health of a character within the AoE is higher than 70%, they gain an ATK Bonus that is based on Bennett’s Base ATK.
  • Imbues characters within the AoE with Pyro.

The crux of Bennett’s kit. Characters within Bennett’s Burst radius gain a massive Flat ATK buff, a Pyro cleanse, and substantial healing every second.

Please note that the ATK buff from his Elemental Burst scales only with his Base ATK. Bennett’s Base ATK is the sum of his innate ATK stat and weapon’s Base ATK stat. ATK% (and Flat ATK) from weapons and artifacts do not contribute anything to his ATK buff.

Bennett’s Base ATK can be viewed on his stat details page; it is the white number on the character stat screen. The green portion of his ATK Stat does not contribute to his ATK buff.

Ascension 1 Passive

Ascension 1 Passive | Rekindle

Decreases Passion Overload’s CD by 20%.

A Passive Talent which decreases Bennett’s Elemental Skill cooldown from 5s to 4s. It basically makes end-of-rotation batterying a bit quicker.

Ascension 4 Passive

Ascension 4 Passive | Fearnaught

When inside Fantastic Voyage’s circle, Passion Overload’s CD is decreased by 50% and Bennett cannot be launched by this skill’s explosion.

This Talent further lowers his Elemental Skill cooldown if the Skill is cast within his Burst radius. His Tap Skill cooldown is reduced to a mere 2s. As such, Bennett becomes an incredible Pyro battery and hastens his primary source of damage as an on-field DPS.


Constellation 1

Constellation 1 | Grand Expectation

Fantastic Voyage’s ATK increase no longer has an HP restriction, and gains an additional 20% of Bennett’s Base ATK.

Bennett’s best Constellation. It removes the HP limit on his ATK buff and adds 20% of his Base ATK to the final ATK buff.

Constellation 2

Constellation 2 | Impasse Conqueror

When Bennett’s HP falls below 70%, his Energy Recharge is increased by 30%.

A negligible Constellation that slightly lowers Bennett’s ER needs. It is rarely active because his healing almost always keeps him above 70% HP.

Constellation 3

Constellation 3 | Unstoppable Fervor

Increases the Level of Passion Overload by 3.

Maximum upgrade level is 15.

Very strong for an invested support or on-field DPS Bennett. However, it is not very useful for a support Bennett as he does not need more Elemental Skill damage.

Constellation 4

Constellation 4 | Unexpected Odyssey

Using a Normal Attack as the second attack of Passion Overload’s Charge Level 1 will perform a follow-up attack.

This additional attack does 135% of the second attack’s DMG.

This Constellation is pretty insignificant because Bennett’s Hold Elemental Skill is generally not recommended to use. However, it can still be useful in some niche situations which require extra Pyro application.

Constellation 5

Constellation 5 | True Explorer

Increases the Level of Fantastic Voyage by 3.

Maximum upgrade level is 15.

A universally strong Constellation that increases the damage and ATK buff of Bennett’s Elemental Burst. This Constellation provides a noticeable increase in team DPS for both a support and on-field DPS Bennett.

It is recommended to stop here and weigh the potential pros and cons of unlocking Bennett’s final Constellation.

Constellation 6

Constellation 6 | Fire Ventures With Me

Sword, Claymore, or Polearm-wielding characters inside Fantastic Voyage’s radius gain a 15% Pyro DMG Bonus and their weapons are infused with Pyro.

Bennett’s most contentious Constellation. The arguments for and against unlocking this Constellation are briefly discussed below.

  • The Pyro Infusion synergizes well with:
    • Diluc, Pyro Xinyan, and Bennett himself
  • The 15% Pyro DMG Bonus helps the aforementioned Pyro DPS characters as well as:
    • Xiangling, Hu Tao, Yoimiya, Klee, Yanfei, Kazuha
  • Does not override these characters’ Elemental Conversions/Infusions:
    • Alhaitham, Ayato, Candace, Cyno, Itto, Nilou, Noelle, Raiden Shogun, Xiao
  • Enables a few very niche team compositions
  • Removes the red (!) dot on the Character icon
  • Incompatible with Physical DPS builds, notably for:
    • Eula, Razor, Zhongli, Kaeya, Rosaria, Keqing
  • Overrides these characters’ Elemental Infusions:
    • Ayaka, Chongyun, Keqing, C6 Kazuha, C6 Dori
  • Prevents an on-field Melt DPS Bennett build with Chongyun 
  • Currently irreversible, so may conflict with future characters

For most players, unlocking Bennett’s sixth Constellation is a welcome bonus. However, if a player enjoys playing Bennett with a Physical DPS or with an overridable Elemental Infusion, then the Constellation should not be unlocked.

Note: Despite offering Pyro Infusion for only Sword, Claymore, and Polearm-wielding characters, the 15% Pyro DMG Bonus buff applies to any character regardless of their weapon.


N1 = 1 Normal Attack
E = Elemental Skill
tE = Tap Skill
h1E = Level 1 Hold Skill
Q = Elemental Burst

tE QWhen played as the sole Pyro unit, Bennett should generally use this combo. He catches the Energy particles generated from his Elemental Skill before swapping to another character.
Q tEThis combo lets Bennett battery another teammate (such as Xiangling). Bennett can serve as a good battery for Pyro DPS characters, lowering their ER requirements.
(N1) tE spamThis combo is used in on-field DPS Bennett teams. Due to the low cooldown of Bennett’s Skill in conjunction with the 4TF set effect, Bennett can cause numerous Elemental Reactions in quick succession while on-field. When playing with Xingqiu, Yelan, Beidou and/or C6 Fischl, it is crucial to weave a Normal Attack between Skill uses to maximize damage from Elemental Reactions.
(Q) h1EBennett’s Level 1 Hold Skill at C4 can be used to break Cryo and Electro shields slightly faster than using a Tap Skill. At the end of a rotation, Level 1 Hold Skill can also guarantee that 3 Energy particles will be generated for batterying purposes. Otherwise, tE is preferred.


ER Requirements

Bennett’s ER requirements vary significantly depending on the number of Elemental Skills he casts per rotation and the presence of another Pyro character on his team.

The Energy Recharge Calculator by Zakharov is available to calculate more specific Energy requirements for your given team and rotation.

Artifact Stats

Note: Bennett’s Elemental Burst ATK buff only scales with his Base ATK (Bennett’s inherent ATK stat plus his Sword’s primary Base ATK stat). ATK% from artifacts or weapon secondary stats does not contribute to his buff.

Healing Support



ER / HP%HP%HP% / Healing Bonus
Substat Priority: ER (until requirement) > HP% >> ATK% = EM > CRIT

As a healing support, an ER Sands is usually necessary. In cases where his ER requirement can be met through substats alone, an HP% Sands can provide more healing instead. Healing Bonus Circlets are relatively rare and thereby less likely to roll desirable substats than HP% Circlets. In either case, Bennett’s healing should generally be enough.

Bennett will need to invest in some CRIT Rate substats if he holds Favonius Sword. A CRIT Rate Circlet can also provide sufficient CRIT Rate to enable more consistent triggers of the Favonius passive.

Invested Support / DPS



Substat Priority: : ER (until requirement) > CRIT > EM ≥ ATK% > HP%

As an invested support or on-field DPS, an EM Sands is usually Bennett’s best option in teams where he triggers Elemental Reactions. However, ATK% Sands provide more flexibility since Bennett won’t always be triggering reactions. ATK% is strictly better than EM in Mono Pyro, Anemo, or Geo teams. In cases where Bennett’s ER requirement is high, an ER Sands will likely be necessary to meet his Energy needs since his Burst’s uptime is very important.

Artifact Sets

Artifact SetDescription
4p Noblesse Oblige (4NO)This set is a great addition to Bennett’s buffing capabilities, providing a team-wide ATK% buff. This is typically Bennett’s best set, unless his team does not benefit from the ATK% buff.
4p Instructor (4Ins)This set can be optimal in teams where Elemental Mastery is important for reaction-based DPS units. Moreover, if another character on the team can hold 4NO, this option can be better for overall team buffing potential.
4p Thundering Fury (4TF)A niche pick for an on-field DPS build. By taking advantage of the set’s 4-Piece effect with an Electro teammate, Bennett can spam his Elemental Skill every second and deal substantial damage through Elemental Reactions. 
4p Crimson Witch of FlamesThe uncontested best set for an on-field DPS build in Vaporize and Melt teams. With his low Skill cooldown, Bennett can consistently maintain the full 3 stacks of the 4-Piece effect.
4p Gilded Dreams / Flower of Paradise LostThese sets should only be used in Burgeon teams where Bennett is the on-field Burgeon trigger. Bennett’s Burgeon damage will be higher due to their 2-Piece EM bonus and 4-Piece set effect.
4p The ExileA useful support option for newer players and teams that are starved for Energy. Other options like 4NO and 4Ins are still preferred to maximize team DPS.

Note: Base ATK main stats for weapons are displayed at Level 90.

WeaponBase ATKDescription
Mistsplitter Reforged674This Sword shares the highest Base ATK among Swords in the game, which maximizes Bennett’s potential ATK buff. Its secondary CRIT DMG% stat and the passive’s Elemental DMG Bonus make it the Best-in-Slot option for any build when Bennett’s ER requirements can be met through artifacts alone.
Aquila Favonia674As with Mistsplitter Reforged, this Sword shares the highest Base ATK among Swords in the game. However, its passive and Physical DMG% substat make it less preferable to Mistsplitter Reforged when given the choice.
Sapwood Blade565Bennett’s Best-in-Slot F2P option. With the second highest Base ATK among 4-stars and a vital ER secondary stat, Sapwood Blade is ideal for Bennett’s ATK buffing capabilities while helping meet his ER requirement. Furthermore, its passive grants an added bonus for the Dendro teams Bennett can support. As a craftable weapon, every player has access to it after completing the prerequisite World Quests in Sumeru.
Prototype Rancour565Since every player is given one at AR10, this Sword is a fine option for newer players who do not have access to Sapwood Blade yet. Sharing the same Base ATK stat as Sapwood Blade means Prototype Rancour can enable the same ATK buff, but its mostly useless Physical DMG% secondary stat makes it more difficult to fulfill Bennett’s ER requirement.
Favonius Sword454Due to its low Base ATK, Favonius Sword might not seem that good. However, this weapon could be Bennett’s best option when his team has high ER requirements, given its ER substat and Energy particle generating passive. That is, the batterying capability of Favonius Sword can offset its lower Base ATK by allowing more investment into his teammates’ damage.
The Alley Flash620Being the highest Base ATK 4-star Sword in the game, The Alley Flash can maximize the potential of Bennett’s ATK buff. In addition, The Alley Flash’s DMG bonus helps Bennett dish out even more damage in an invested support build. Its EM substat also helps an on-field DPS Bennett that triggers Elemental Reactions. However, since it is a limited-time gacha-exclusive 4-star Sword, its accessibility is far lower than other 4-star options.
Freedom-Sworn608Unlike most other weapons’, Freedom-Sworn’s passive can be useful as it situationally provides a 20% ATK buff and a 16% buff to Normal, Charged, and Plunging Attack DMG% for Bennett’s team. A strong choice for either of his playstyles thanks to its high Base ATK and EM substat.
Skyward Blade608Skyward Blade is a great option when Bennett’s ER needs are high because of its high Base ATK and significant ER substat. It offers diminishing returns when Bennett’s ER requirement is less than 155% ER.
Haran Geppaku Futsu608Haran Geppaku Futsu can provide a substantial boost to Bennett’s personal damage in an invested support or DPS build thanks to its high Base ATK, CRIT Rate substat, and decent passive.
Summit Shaper608A high base ATK stat stick with a decent ATK% secondary stat that helps with Bennett’s damage output. However, maximizing the passive uptime is tough as it requires units that may be uncommon in on-field DPS Bennett teams.
Jade Cutter542A great option for on-field DPS or invested support builds which provides high CRIT Rate and a passive that grants a modest boost to Bennett’s damage and healing. Jade Cutter possesses the lowest Base ATK among 5-star Swords, and a lower Base ATK than a few 4-star Swords like Sapwood Blade.
Key of Khaj-Nisut542Although the Key of Khaj-Nisut’s Base ATK is lower than other Swords, the HP% substat helps maximize his healing. Triggering its passive effect, which grants an EM buff to his team, is quite difficult on the first rotation, but easier starting from the second rotation. A decent choice for teams that value EM and healing over his ATK buff, like a Burgeon Kazuha team.
Festering Desire510A decent 4-star option, especially in 4TF on-field DPS Bennett builds due to its passive. Although Festering Desire provides a substantial ER substat, Sapwood Blade is almost always better since it enables Bennett’s Burst to grant a higher ATK buff.
Iron Sting510Not recommended to craft over Sapwood Blade for a pure healing support build. The EM secondary stat is much appreciated in Burgeon or 4TF teams where Bennett is the on-field trigger. In all other teams, Sapwood Blade is a better choice.
Lion’s Roar510A niche pick for an on-field 4TF build, dealing about 2% less DPS on average compared to Iron Sting at equal refinement level. Not recommended over other options.


This is not a comprehensive list of teams, and the inclusion or exclusion of any given team does not necessarily reflect its power level. This list is not ranked.


One of Bennett’s most popular team archetypes pairs him with Xiangling and Xingqiu. By adding an on-field Electro, Hydro, Anemo, or Cryo DPS, the team can trigger many Elemental Reactions and dish out significant damage. This team’s variants perform exceptionally well in single-target environments.

Notable Teammates

Raiden ShogunRaiden Shogun is often regarded as an excellent on-field carry for the team, thanks to her tremendous personal damage, powerful buff, and batterying capability. The Burst DMG% buff from her Skill and Energy generation from her Burst are valuable for Xiangling and Xingqiu. 
FischlFischl’s great off-field Electro DMG from Oz and her 4th Ascension Passive make her a good option. However, due to her single-target damage and frequent triggers of Overloaded, she may not be the best option in AoE situations. 
Sucrose / HeizouSucrose or Heizou are fantastic on-field drivers for the team because they provide Swirls, an EM buff, and a vital 4-Piece Viridescent Venerer Resistance Shred. They can also hold Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayers, providing an even greater ATK buff to Xiangling or the on-field DPS.
KazuhaKazuha is an excellent off-field Anemo option due to his Elemental DMG% buff, grouping, and good personal damage from Swirls. He also provides the valuable 4-Piece Viridescent Venerer Resistance Shred. Kazuha should absorb Hydro into his Elemental Burst so that Xiangling properly triggers Vape.
YelanYelan is an off-field Hydro single-target DPS that synergizes incredibly well with the team. When using Yelan, Bennett can act as the on-field driver and weave Skills between his Normal Attacks. Xingqiu can also be played on-field so his Elemental Burst can enjoy Bennett’s ATK buff.
ChongyunChongyun provides a Cryo Infusion that can allow Melt to occur. His Burst can Reverse Melt and deal substantial damage as well. His second Constellation is incredibly valuable for its cooldown reduction for the team.
KaeyaKaeya can provide substantial Cryo application through his Elemental Burst. While on-field, he can weave Normal Attacks between uses of his Elemental Skill.

Reverse Vape

In Vaporize-focused teams, Bennett can serve as the premier support for Pyro DPS units or become an on-field Pyro DPS himself.

Notables Teammates

Xingqiu, Yelan, Tartaglia, Ayato
A Hydro character is needed to apply Hydro for Pyro abilities to Vaporize. For Reverse Vape teams with Bennett, the best off-field Hydro applicators are Yelan and Xingqiu, and the best on-field Hydro applicator is Tartaglia. Ayato’s Hydro application through his Skill and Burst can sometimes lead to inconsistent Vape ownership between himself and the Pyro DPS.
Kazuha, Sucrose, Venti
An Anemo character is crucial for providing Elemental Resistance Shred through the 4-Piece Viridescent Venerer artifact set effect. Kazuha and Sucrose can provide additional buffs and grouping. Venti is the premier grouping Anemo support in AoE situations, though he can sometimes lift smaller enemies out of melee range. Absorbing Hydro in these characters’ Bursts can enable more consistent Vaporize ownership for the Pyro DPS, though the team will lose out on Swirl DMG.
Xiangling, Diluc, Yoimiya, Yanfei, Hu Tao
Pyro DPS characters benefit substantially from Bennett’s ATK buff and, at C6, his Pyro DMG buff. Moreover, Bennett can reduce their ER requirements by funneling Pyro Energy particles to them with his Elemental Skill.
Another Hydro, Zhongli, Albedo
A Double Hydro core can provide more than enough Hydro for a Pyro character to Vaporize all their attacks. Zhongli is useful for his Resistance Shred and unmatched shielding. Albedo can provide off-field DPS and a small EM buff to his teammates.

Example Teams

Bennett — Tartaglia — Kazuha — Xiangling
Bennett — Ayato — Sucrose — Xiangling
Bennett — Xingqiu — Zhongli — Yoimiya
Bennett (On-Field DPS) – Xingqiu – Kazuha – Yelan

Reverse Melt

Reverse Melt teams function by applying Cryo to a Pyro aura to trigger Melt. Xiangling’s Burst and Kazuha’s Pyro-absorbed Burst can provide enough Pyro application to allow a Cryo DPS to consistently trigger Melt on enemies.

Notable Teammates

XianglingA fantastic partner for Bennett. Her Burst’s ability to utilize Bennett’s buff throughout its entire duration makes her incredibly powerful. Her Pyro application is usually essential for her Reverse Melt teams to work.
KazuhaIn addition to his utility and team buffs, Kazuha can act as a Pyro applicator when his Burst absorbs Pyro. Kazuha is best used in slow Cryo-applying situations like Ganyu’s Reverse Melt team.
RosariaRosaria is a formidable Cryo DPS because she provides CRIT Rate to her teammates and can trigger Melt on every tick of her Elemental Burst.
KaeyaKaeya can serve as an off-field Cryo DPS in Reverse Melt teams. However, he is only able to trigger Melt on a third of his damage. Nonetheless, he is still a good free-to-play option.
ChongyunA great choice for Reverse Melt. With his Cryo Infusion and tremendous Burst damage potential, Chongyun can serve as a quickswap Burst Cryo DPS and allow Rosaria to remain on-field to spam Cryo-infused Charged Attacks. With proper setup, Chongyun can even trigger Melt multiple times within one Burst.
ShenheShenhe buffs Cryo DMG with her kit while also being able to trigger Melt with her abilities. She also provides a Burst DMG buff with her A4 Passive. Shenhe enables Cryo DPS teammates to deal more frontloaded damage, which can be useful for enemies with short DPS windows.
GanyuGanyu’s Reverse Melt team is good in single-target or low AoE. Her Charged Attacks and Frostflake Arrows can deal a massive amount of damage and trigger Melt on every hit with Xiangling or Kazuha’s Pyro-infused Elemental Burst.

Example Teams

Bennett — Xiangling — Rosaria — Kaeya/Chongyun
Bennett — Kazuha — Ganyu — Zhongli


Bennett synergizes well with Burgeon teams because he can heal the self-inflicted damage caused by Burgeon. These teams rely on having a unit who can apply enough Hydro to maintain a Hydro aura on enemies, which is essential to avoiding Burning. Bennett can be played as an on-field Pyro applicator, or enable other characters to trigger Burgeon (through Pyro absorption or his C6 Pyro Infusion).

As a support, Bennett should hold 4-Piece Instructor and Sapwood Blade (R5 if possible). As a Burgeon trigger, Bennett should hold 4-Piece Gilded Dreams or Flower of Paradise Lost and an EM secondary stat Sword. The Dendro character should almost always hold 4-Piece Deepwood Memories.

Notable Teammates

NahidaNahida is not only the hands-down best Dendro applicator in the game, but also a significant DPS in her own right. Her off-field Dendro application refreshes often and can keep up with Burgeon teams. She also provides a much appreciated EM buff to her teammates.
Dendro TravelerAn excellent free-to-play option. In team rotations, Hydro must be applied to the Traveler’s Elemental Burst before Pyro, or else it will explode and no longer provide off-field Dendro application. Dendro Traveler can be built cheaply with enough ER to maintain Burst uptime, or serve as an off-field Dendro DPS with higher investment.
XianglingXiangling can work in Burgeon teams since her Elemental Burst snapshots any buffs it has on cast through its entire duration. However, she should be played exclusively with Tartaglia to avoid Burning.
KazuhaBy absorbing Pyro into his Elemental Burst, Kazuha can serve as an excellent Burgeon trigger since he already builds as much EM as possible.
TartagliaThe premier on-field Hydro applicator. Tartaglia applies enough Hydro to avoid Burning from occurring. Great with Xiangling or Kazuha.
XingqiuXingqiu is the best off-field Hydro applicator available, and he works great in an on-field Bennett Burgeon team or alongside another on-field Pyro applicator.
YelanYelan applies less Hydro than C6 Xingqiu but provides higher personal DPS due to her scalings. Nonetheless, Yelan’s slower Hydro application can stop Burning after it occurs. Together, Yelan and Xingqiu can provide enough Hydro application to prevent Burning from happening.
FischlFischl can fit well as a fourth slot option. Because a Quicken aura still maintains an underlying Dendro aura, Hydro application can still produce Dendro Cores. Furthermore, Fischl can allow Bennett to trigger Overloaded (which also scales off Character Level and EM). Additionally, she rarely triggers Hyperbloom due to Oz’s targeting.
RazorRazor is a rather niche choice who can be played as an on-field Burgeon trigger with C6 Bennett. During Bennett’s Burst and Razor’s Burst, Razor’s Pyro-infused Normal Attacks and Electro application from his Burst trigger Burgeon as well as Overloaded, Electro-Charged, and Vaporize. This team performs well in single-target scenarios and AoE content with heavy enemies, but suffers against lighter enemies due to the knockback from Overloaded.

Example Teams

Bennett — Nahida — Tartaglia — Kazuha
Bennett (On-Field) — Nahida — Xingqiu — Fischl
Bennett (C6) — Dendro Traveler — Xingqiu — Razor


Bennett and Jean make a venerable pairing due to the interaction between their Elemental Bursts. To activate the “Sunfire” interaction, use Bennett’s Elemental Burst before Jean’s so that Jean can trigger an additional instance of Swirl at the beginning of her Burst. Bennett’s Burst continuously applies Pyro to the on-field character, and Jean’s Burst continuously triggers Swirl with the self-applied Pyro aura. The resulting Pyro Swirls deal respectable damage and apply Pyro to enable other reactions.

By introducing Electro and Hydro characters to react with Jean’s Pyro Swirls, the team can deal astounding damage. In such scenarios, a simultaneous Electro and Hydro aura can appear on enemies, allowing Jean to trigger Overloaded and Vaporize at the same time. Moreover, the Pyro Swirls can break enemy Electro and Cryo shields quickly. Although Electro and Hydro can produce the most reactions and potential damage, Double Hydro and Mono Pyro team compositions can also work.

Due to the limited range of Bennett’s and Jean’s Bursts, some have dubbed this playstyle “Circle Impact”. Nonetheless, this archetype is still powerful in single-target or low AoE scenarios.

Example Teams

Bennett — Jean — Xingqiu — Raiden
Bennett — Jean — Yelan — Fischl
Bennett — Jean — Kazuha — Klee

On-Field 4TF

A niche playstyle that capitalizes on Bennett’s short Elemental Skill cooldown. When holding 4-Piece Thundering Fury, Bennett’s Skill has a cooldown of 1 second within his Burst. By maximizing his EM through his artifacts and weapon, Bennett can trigger potent Overloaded DMG. This on-field playstyle can be fun, but may suffer in AoE situations with enemies that are easily staggered.

4TF Bennett is also one of the best options to break through Electro shields.

Notable Teammates

Lisa, Fischl, Beidou, Yae Miko
An off-field Electro DPS is required to play Bennett on-field with 4TF. Two Electro characters can also be played on the same team.
Xingqiu, Yelan
As off-field Hydro DPS characters, Xingqiu and Yelan can allow Electro-Charged to occur, thereby allowing Bennett to simultaneously trigger Overloaded and Vaporize. They also offer considerable personal damage.
Sucrose, Kazuha, Venti
An Anemo character is valuable as they can provide grouping, 4VV Elemental Shred, and buffs/utility innate to their kits. Infusing their Burst with Electro or Hydro is ideal. It is best to build them with as much EM as possible to maximize their damage through Transformative Reactions.

Example Teams

Bennett — Lisa — Beidou — Xingqiu
Bennett — Fischl — Sucrose — Xingqiu
Bennett — Yae Miko — Kazuha — Yelan

Generalist Support

Bennett’s Swiss Army knife level of utility allows him to fulfill several roles while only taking up one team slot (often referred to as role compression). His substantial ATK buff can allow ATK-scaling DPS characters to deal much more damage.

Example Teams

Bennett — Sara — Sucrose — Raiden Shogun
Bennett — Xiangling — Kazuha — Klee
Bennett — Layla — Faruzan — Wanderer
Bennett — Fischl — Kazuha — Ayato
