Genshin Impact Collei Build Guide

Dendro, the seventh element and vision, is finally coming to Genshin Impact. Collei is the first 4-star character with the element, and just like Tighnari she’s a bow user. This Collei Best Build Guide explains how to get Collei’s Ascension Materials and what her best weapons are.

As with new characters, you’ll need the correct ascension materials, Talent books and Artifacts to get the best use out of Collei. Unfortunately, since Sumeru is a brand new island coming to Genshin Impact, almost all of Collei’s materials will come from the new island. But fear not because there are still ways you can prepare for this arrival with Artifacts and Weapons available right now.

Collei’s Ascension Materials Level 1-90

Collei’s Ascension Materials come from the new island of Semeru. The boss Jadeplume Terrorshrooms, a giant Dendro Bird, drops the Nagadus Emerald set and the Majestic Hooked Beak. The Arrowheads required for her ascension can be farmed by defeating any Hillichurl Snipers located all over Tevet.

Collei is looking to be a great support unit for your party. Her Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst. are both AOE (Area of Effect) based and help to create reactions with other characters. Though you can build any character however you want. We recommend a support role for Collei.

Collei Best Weapon

The Hunters Path is the new bow in update 3.0, it’s not only a great weapon for Tighnari but a great weapon for Collei. Those who can’t get the Hunters Path can opt-out for another 5-Star weapon, the Elegy for the End. If you aren’t able to acquire any of the 5-Star Bows, The best 4-Star options include The Stringless and the Viridescent Hunt
