Bennett Quick TL;DR DPS and Support Build Guide
UPDATED FOR 1.6 😁!
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
PSA #3: Tap E is recommended for quickly charging your burst, as charging DOES NOT guarantee more energy regeneration + has a longer cooldown. Hold E is tolerable once you have Q out
Essentially changes the CD to 4/6/8s for your E at all levels
Here’s the quick breakdown:
1. Q will do pyro damage in a large AoE around Benny
2. If character HP is EQUAL OR BELOW 70%, they will heal based off Benny’s HP
3. If character HP is ABOVE 70%, they will ATK buff based off Benny’s ATK
4. Applies pyro proc on character + any who enter the field
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
1. Level 60 Benny has a base ATK of 126. Level 60 Skyrider Sword adds 234 base ATK.
2. You would have a total of 360 base ATK (you can check what this is by clicking on details)
3. Q buff is based off that white number. So 360 base ATK * .70 = 252 ATK bonus
Talent Leveling Order: Q > E > Normal
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for Benny DPS): Festering Desire
How do I get it D: ? – Dragonspine Storyline
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for early Benny Support): Harbinger of Dawn
How do I get it D: ? – You get one from Kaeya, but rest from gacha
Festering Desire is essentially still the best option for both DPS and Support, due to it’s weapon skill, absurd amount of energy regeneration, and the fact the event provides free refinement and leveling materials
Favonius Sword, Sacrificial Sword, and at early levels Fillet Blade are also great alternatives if you don’t have Festering Desire yet
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for a big thumbs up): Crimson Witch + Noblesse Oblige
How do I get it D: ? – Crimson Witch at Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run). Noblesse Oblige at Clear Pool and Mountain Cavern Domain (AR 35 locked, 20 Resin per run)
There is a really odd Phys DMG DPS Bennett build that uses Aquila Favonia + 4-set Gladiator’s, but it’s just for giggles. Highly recommend just going with the artifacts above if you just want to spam Q and nuke people
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)
The Exile set is an excellent placeholder until you’re strong enough/high enough AR enough to farm for 5-star Noblesse Oblige!
Main stats (for DPS):
|ATK%||Pyro DMG%||CRIT% or CRIT DMG|
Substats: CRIT% > CRIT DMG > ATK > EM
Main stats (for Support):
|ER%||HP% (or Pyro DMG%)||Healing Bonus%|
Substats: HP% > ATK > ER% > HP (but getting CRIT%/CRIT DMG is also fine)
If you want other characters let me know. Hope this helped. Bye.
