Bennett - Genshin Impact


Bennett is arguably the strongest 4-star character in Genshin Impact and he has been meta in the Spiral Abyss since 2020.
In patch 3.5, over 87% Bennett owners used him to clear Floor 12, which shows how popular he is.
Bennett deals decent damage, can heal your party and offers a massive damage buff to your on-field characters.

Bennett is one of the cornerstone 4-stars of Genshin Impact and he has been “meta” ever since his release. Players overlooked his kit when the game launched but once the community discovered how powerful he can be, he has been a staple in the Spiral Abysss meta. In the current patch (3.5), over 87% Bennett users used him to clear floor 12 and that’s even more impressive considering he is far more accessible than 5-star characters. Here is a complete breakdown of Bennett’s Talents, Constellations and Passives.

Genshin Impact Bennett: Should you pull? 

We recommend getting at least one copy of Bennett from the Starglitter shop whenever he is in rotation. He shows up in May and November every year and you can get a copy for 36 Starglitter. We recommend not pulling for him if you do not want the rate-up 5 stars. When it comes to constellations, C1 is the way to go and anything above that is just a bonus. C6 Bennett is hotly debated within the community and many recommend not going for it. But in most cases, it is still a beneficial constellation but if you are unsure, you can leave it depending on which characters you use.
