Artifacts and builds for Bennett
Bennett is best built as a support in Genshin Impact. By far his best artifact set is a 4-piece Noblesse Oblige. This will increase the damage of Fantastic Voyage and also give an extra attack boost to all party members for 12 seconds. Look for sub stats that boost Elemental Mastery, Attack and Health. You want to prioritize leveling up the Fantastic Voyage talent.
Bennett can also be built as a damage dealer, but this is not as common. For Bennett to be a reliable main DPS, you must have the 4th Constellation for him. This allows him to deal extra damage with Passion Overload. With this build, you want to build into the Gladiator’s Finale and Crimson Witch of Flames artifact sets.
