August 13, 2022: New Collei information is dropping in the Genshin Impact 3.0 livestream.

Some die-hard Genshin Impact fans will recognise Collei - she has appeared in the manga series before, where her backstory has been fleshed out. But now, she's coming to the game along with the Sumeru region.

The Sumeru region is the next big area coming to Genshin, following the release of the Inazuma islands. This is said to be the home of Dendro, and will finally bring Dendro Vision users to the game. Remember, all of the information here is leaked, and unconfirmed.

Keep up to date with all the leaks and news about Genshin Impact with our pages for Version 2.8, the later Version 3.0, and everything we know about the Dendro Vision. There's also our codes page for free Primogems.


When Is the Genshin Impact Collei release date

Collei, the Sprout of Rebirth, will allegedly release in the Version 3.0 banners. She is slated as a 4-Star character, so she will feature on either a rerun banner, or on that of a new character.

Allegedly, Collei will be a free unit in 3.0 - however this is a very dubious rumour.

What Is Collei's element?

Collei is one of the first Dendro characters that will be playable in Genshin Impact. The Element focuses on nature and greenery, and will add a whole new aspect to combat.


What weapon does Collei use in Genshin Impact?

It is rumoured that Collei wields a bow, and so we recommend any bow that buffs elemental skills or attack, such as the Sacrificial Bow, or the Prototype Crescent.

Given that Tighnari and Collei are both 5-Star Dendro Bow users, they might share recommended weapons. It is likely that a new bow (or two) will release alongside them, tailored to one or both of their builds.

We recommend equipping Collei with the new Dendro Artifact sets: Memories of the Deep Forest and Ornamental Gold Dream. The first set applies a Dendro DMG boost, and the second increases Elemental Mastery.

What are Collei's skills?

Each Genshin Impact character has two skills and a passive ability. One of the skills takes longer to charge, and is a stronger attack. For Collei, these are:

  • Skill 1 - Collei can throw a boomerang that deals Dendro damage, on the way out and back.
  • Skill 2 - Like Amber, Collei has an animal sidekick that she can deploy - this time a cat. This will cause AoE damage, and explodes.
  • Passive - Collei's passive is allegedly the same as Amber's, though we're not sure which one yet.

What is Collei's constellation?

Collei's constellation has been revealed as Leptailurus Cervarius, which interestingly, roughly translates as 'quick-moving deer'. This likely means that Collei will be a fast shot with her bow, or that her constellation upgrades will improve speed.

Collei's Constellation boosts have been leaked, and they, supposedly, are:

  • C1 - When in party but not on field, Energy Recharge is increased by 20%.
  • C2 - Passive talent 'Floral Sidewinder' changes to Floral Ring, which gives Sprout effect, dealing +40% Dendro DMG.
  • C3 - Floral Brush increased by +3.
  • C4 - Using Trump-Card Kitty increases Elemental Mastery by +60 for 12s.
  • C5 - Trump-Card Kitty increased by +3.
  • C6 - Floral Ring will deal 200% extra Dendro DMG.

Who Is Collei?

Collei is training to be a Forest Ranger in the Avidya Forest under Tighnari. She can help you out if you get in a pickle.

She's a 4-Star character and is a short, female character model. If her in-game story follows that of the manga, then she'll be an interesting addition. There's tons of backstory for her already, but to sum up: born a sickly child, she was abducted by those whom her parents sought help from. These were the Fatui. She broke out, and now seeks to exact her revenge.
