Genshin Impact Bennett DPS and Support Build Guide
PSA #1: A DPS is a muscle head. They need muscles and nothing else, but they can’t get gains without that protein shake. Your team is that protein shake, and your damage is that muscle.
PSA #2: Both Bennett’s abilities scale off ATK. He may be seen as a Diluc wannabe, but boy oh boy DO HE SLAP HARD. Someone pick up their boy before they annoy me to death
Elemental Skill – Passion Overload
He basically nuts. Tap E to do a single pyro slash. Hold E to charge for a c-c-c-c-combo breaker. Holding E will do 2 uppercut slashes and a down smash explosion
PSA #3: Holding E to level 2 is recommended over tapping. While the knockback at the end of the is annoying, it gets removed when you get phase 4. He do be slapping tho
Passive Talent – Rekindle
Lowers E CD
Elemental Burst – Fantastic Voyage
THIS IS WHAT BREAKS BENNY BOY.
Here’s the quick breakdown:
- Q will do pyro damage in a large AoE around Benny
- If character HP is EQUAL OR BELOW 70%, they will heal based off Benny’s HP
- If character HP is ABOVE 70%, they will ATK buff based off Benny’s ATK
- Applies pyro proc on character
PSA #4: THE BUFF IS NOT A 70% ATK BUFF. It means 70% of Benny’s base ATK is given to the character on the field.
EXAMPLE: You have a level 60 Benny, you’re running a level 60 Skyrider Sword, and your Q is level 4
- Level 60 Benny has a base ATK of 126. Level 60 Skyrider Sword adds 234 base ATK.
- You would have a total of 360 base ATK (you can check what this is by clicking on details)
- Q buff is based off that white number. So 360 base ATK * .70 = 252 ATK bonus
Passive Talent 2 – Fearnaught
Basically use your hold E to your heart’s content after Q
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for meme dream damage): The Flute
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Has base ATK scaling and it just hurts
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early Benny blasts): Skyrider Sword
How do I get it D: ? – Go slap some monsters and steal their chests
Has base Energy Recharge scaling and helps dish out damage faster
You can run Favonius Sword, Fillet Blade, Prototype Rancour, or even the BP sword if you want to. All of them are pretty neck and neck, and really depend on what you’re struggling with. If you want more Q spam, go Favonius/Skyrider. If you want more damage, run everything else mentioned.
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for a big thumbs up): Berserker + Gladiator’s Finale
How do I get it D: ? – Both at any World Boss (40 Resin per run)
BIG CRIT SLAPS
JUST BIG SLAPS
You can run any of the ATK +18% sets like Sojourner or Braveheart. Or subsequently you can just run two 2-set ATK +18% sets if you have decent CRIT% already
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for overkill support): Noblesse Oblige
How do I get it D: ? – Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern Domain (AR 35 locked, 20 Resin per run)
Honestly… the Q just gives too much ATK man…
You can also run The Exile set if you’re hungry for energy recharge, or run a mixture of both
Main stat: ATK% (you can run Pyro DMG% on your Goblet. Healing Bonus% on your Circlet if you want to run him support)
Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK/Elemental Mastery > Elemental Recharge
