How to Use the Dendro Traveler

Play as a Sub-DPS or Support

The Dendro Traveler acts primarily as a Support or as a second Sub-DPS character in any team comp. Their main purpose is enabling Dendro reactions for the Main and Sub-DPS, given how amazing their Elemental Burst is!

Surgent Manifestation Elemental Burst

The Traveler's Elemental Burst will summon a Lea Lotus Lamp that deals constant Dendro Damage. The Lea Lotus Lamp will change properties if it comes into contact with Hydro, Electro, or Pyro. It can only change its properties once.

Hydro Lea Lotus Lamp

A Lea Lotus Lamp coming into contact with Hydro will cause it to grow. Along with its growth, its attacks will also have a wider AoE as well as the range of its attacks. This make's it ideal for spreading Dendro damage.

Electro Lea Lotus Lamp

When Electro comes into contact with the Lea Lotus Lamp, its attack speed will increase. This is ideal for applying Dendro more often.

Pyro Lea Lotus Lamp

Pyro coming into contact with the Electro Lotus Lamp will cause it to explode, dealing massive AoE Dendro damage. It's best to use Pyro on the Lea Lotus Lamp only when you know its duration is about to expire

I think Dendro Traveler’s best f2p weapon should be Sapwood Blade. It does provide a huge portion of EM that Iron Sting can provide for most of DMC’s burst uptime, while DMC faces a lot of energy issues, which Sapwood Blade can help cover up. DMC needs like over 200 ER to reliably have burst charged before CD, especially if not teamed with Nahida, and/or favonius users, etc.

Dendro traveler will become the most viable of all 7 because there are already broken hydro, pyro and cryo chars. #remind me in 10 years
