Welcome to Pocket Gamers' detailed Genshin Impact Bennett guide! Bennett was an orphan discovered and raised by the Mondstadt Adventurers’ Guild. Unfortunate to have seemingly really bad luck, his self-organized adventure group “Benny’s Adventure Team” quickly became a solo group as the other members left due to unfortunate events. Despite all of this, Bennett generally has a can-do attitude and sees his Vision as a blessing bestowed to him by the gods.

In the guide below you will find the following features:

Best Party Members to match Bennett with in Genshin Impact

Premium (Gacha) Team

In Genshin Impact, Bennett is a well-rounded character, great with nearly any other characters. He truly excels if you save up his Burst for a perfect moment to maximize damage. His Pyro attacks also pair well with Diluc, and with resonance, you’ll not only get more damage, but it causes Diluc to severely increase his damage output.

Use Ganyu to offer additional damage with Melt reactions to groups of enemies. Finally, Venti is great for Support to round up enemies and set them up for either of your DPS’ Burst attacks.

F2P Team

No matter what, Bennett will be your primary character in this build. Not only is he able to heal, but he can increase damage output for others, too. Xiangling is great for your DPS here with Bennett offering her additional Pyro resonance. Kaeya can serve as a reaction trigger, offering his Cryo to the two Pyro users to cause a Melt reaction. Use the Anemo version of the Traveler to control larger crowds and spread the reactions from the others.
