Collei is a Dendro archer who has a variety of weapons at her disposal, including her trusty bow, a boomerang, and an adorable cat doll. She specializes in AoE damage with both her Elemental Burst and Elemental Skill dealing widespread damage. Her Floral Brush skill releases a boomerang-style ring that deals Dendro damage to targets when it’s thrown and also as it returns, while her Elemental Burst, Trump-Card-Kitty, throws out her mechanical cat sidekick who deals AoE damage.

The four-star fighter follows in the footsteps of her mentor Tighnari in wielding the Dendro element, though she has distinct abilities in comparison to her master. Players can currently obtain Collei for free by completing the Graven Innocence event tutorial.

Tighnari is the game’s first five-star Dendro user who was introduced alongside the Sumeru region. He’s the Avidya Forest Watcher and the lead ranger of the Dawson Rainforest who takes great pride in keeping the forest safe. He’s also the mentor of Collei.

Tighnari’s kit involves Dendro abilities that deal a lot of AoE damage, including a ranged Elemental Skill where he throws an object that debuffs enemies with the ‘Chaos’ effect. His Elemental Burst fires homing arrows that can ricochet onto additional targets which has the potential to deal a widespread amount of damage in just a single move.

Baizhu could become a playable character in Genshin Impact.
  • Rarity: ???
  • Weapon: ???

Baizhu is an NPC in Genshin Impact who has been rumored to potentially become a playable Dendro character in the future. It’s more of a long shot, but there’s potential the Bubu Pharmacy owner makes his way into the game as a Dendro character. The NPC has a Dendro vision on his hip, and he has a deep knowledge of herbal medicine. This could make him a great healer or support.

However, there isn’t much solid info tying Baizhu to eventually becoming a playable character. For now, it’s mostly rumors and speculation, but NPCs have been turned into playable characters in the past ⁠— just look at Yun Jin.
