C6 Not Recommended for Characters with Infusion

Be wary when activating Bennett's C6 Constellation, as it will convert melee characters' attacks into Pyro inside Bennett's Burst. This can be disadvantageous for Elemental or Physical characters like Ayaka or Eula, who rely on their own Element to deal DMG.

How to Use Bennett

Support the Party with Elemental Burst

Bennett Fantastic Voyage

Bennett's Elemental Burst, Fantastic Voyage, gives the characters inside its radius an ATK bonus based on his base ATK. On top of this, this circle will heal the active character. Note that one instance of heal will tick up until 70% HP or above.

Fantastic Voyage is a powerful Elemental Burst that makes Bennett a must in most team compositions and rotations!

Upon unlocking Constellation Lv. 1, Grand Expectation, Fantastic Voyage's ATK boost will no longer have the 70% HP restriction.

ATK increase is based on Bennett's Base ATK

Genshin - Bennett Base ATK

Bennett's ATK power increase from Fantastic Voyage is based on his Total Base ATK (white number), which can be found in the Stat Details. This is calculated by the sum of his own Base ATK plus his weapon's Base ATK.

Note that this ATK increase will not benefit from any increase in ATK stats from Artifacts, so it is better to roll for other stats like Energy Recharge or HP% for Support.

Look out behind you when using the Elemental Skill

Bennett Passion Overload Knockback Explosion
Knockback from Passion Overload: Level 2

Bennett's Elemental Skill, Passion Overload, is a spammable ability but has a huge drawback. After fully charging the skill, Bennett will get knocked backwards, which can have painful consequences.

The effect, however, is negated when done within the AoE created from Fantastic Voyage.

C4 Adds an Additional Attack

Bennett C4 Difference
Passion Overload: Level 1 C0 and C4 Difference

Bennett can do an additional attack during a level 1 charged Elemental Skill by pressing the normal attack button. This attack does an additional 135% damage from his attack value and is only unlocked after reaching his fourth constellation.

Useful to bring on Expeditions

Bennett Expedition.jpg

Thanks to Bennett's Passive Talent, “It Should Be Safe...”, time consumed on an Expedition in Mondstadt will be reduced by 25%.

This will allow you to complete Expeditions earlier, and collect more materials. If you're going on an Expedition in Mondstadt, it's worth it to bring Bennett along.
