Genshin Impact Collei Gameplay

Collei is played as a support, you will never use her normal attacks. These attacks do very little damage. Only level up Collei's elemental rampage, then her elemental attack. The archer will mainly be used to apply the Dendro element with her elemental skills.

Genshin Impact Collei elemental attack statistics

With Floral Brush (the elemental attack), Collei casts a boomerang that deals Dendro damage to enemies hit when it is cast. When he returns, he applies the Dendro element again.

With the Floral Sidewinder passive, if you trigger a Dendro elemental reaction before the boomerang returns, you activate the Sprout effect. This effect deals Dendro damage equal to 40% of Collei's ATK for 3 seconds.

The elemental attack also makes you collect energy particles, which allows you to charge Collei's elemental rampage faster.

Genshin Impact Collei elemental outburst statistics

With Trump-Card Kitty, the heroine summons a doll that causes an explosion inflicting area damage. This creates an area of Cuilein-Anbar. This area remains active for 6 seconds and takes 15 seconds to recharge.

However, thanks to the Languid Wood passive, when you trigger Dendro elemental reactions in Cuilein-Anbar territory, its duration is extended by 1 second. You can extend this area a maximum of 3 times.

On the other hand, you can only perform a maximum of 3 elemental reactions on each enemy. In comparison, the Dendro Traveler will be able to apply the Dendro element more often. Moreover, the application area is rather small and it can be difficult to keep the enemies inside.

Which teams does Collei play in?

Collei will work in all teams Genshin Impact where you want to perform elemental reactions related to the Dendro element.

To do Spread (Electro + Dendro) and increase Dendro damage, our advice is to play Collei with Tighnari, Fischl and Shinobu or a healer of another element.


If you prefer to do Aggravate (Dendro + Electro) in order to boost the Electro element, we recommend the team Collei / Raiden / Yae Miko / an Anemo character (Kazuha or Sucrose) or Zhongli for its shield.

But if you are more interested in the Burning reaction (Pyro + Dendro), the trick is to choose a Pyro DPS like Diluc, Klee, Yoimiya or Xiangling / Collei / Bennett / an Anemo character (Sucrose or Kazuha). Collei will be more effective than the Dendro Traveler in a burn team (the lotus invoked by the Traveler's elemental attack explodes on contact with the Pyro element).


By adding a Hydro character, you will explode Dendro Cores with the Burgeon reaction (Hydro + Dendro, then Pyro). For example, you can play Collei with a Hydro character (Tartaglia or Kokomi), a Pyro character (Thomas for example) and the Dendro Traveler.

That's it for our tips and tricks in this guide dedicated to Genshin Impact Collei. In summary, this is a good Dendro holder that will work in many teams. However, if you haven't unlocked any of Collei's constellations, the Dendro Traveler will overtake it as far as the Dendro application goes. But it is definitely possible to play both together.
