How to Play Bennett

Support the Party with a Fantasic Voyage

Bennett Fantastic Voyage.jpg

Bennett's Elemental Burst, Fantastic Voyage, heals you and your party up to 70%, and gain an ATK bonus that is based on his base ATK.

This ability creates a high damage window for your party to unleash all of their abilities while keeping the entire party healthy. This ability is also excellent in Co-op.

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

Look out behind you when using the Elemental Skill

Bennett Explosion Knockback

Bennett's Elemental Skill, Passion Overload, is a strong ability that 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.

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.
