TLDR / Rotation

As mentioned before, this guide only covers Bennett's role as the Burst Support. Keyword: Burst. His whole benefit in the team is by supplying 100% Burst uptime. In other words, Bennett will contribute with healing and ATK bonus through his Elemental Burst.
As long as you have enough Energy Recharge, Bennett can get enough Energy with few Skills to charge his Burst back up before the next rotation.
Prioritize Energy Recharge before offensive stats if you cannot cast your Elemental Burst off cooldown.
