Genshin - CircletCirclet: CRIT Rate or CRIT DMG
Substats Energy Recharge, CRIT Rate, CRIT DMG, ATK%, Elemental Mastery

This Collei Build is her highest damaging set for maximizing her Elemental Skill and Burst. Deepwood Memories also serves as a support set for Dendro characters.

As a Sub-DPS, Collei would need around +170% ER to use her burst off cooldown without characters like Raiden Shogun. Use either an ER weapon or Sands piece as you see fit! EM should only be considered if she can reliably trigger her own Dendro Reactions.

This Sub-DPS Collei build focuses on maximizing her Elemental Burst DMG. The goal is to stack ER up to around 200%. This build trades more ER for slightly less damage and loses the debuff applied to enemies from the Deadwood set.

Collei Talent Priority

Elemental Burst Elemental Skill Normal Attack

Collei's damage comes primarily from her Elemental Burst with her Elemental Skill following after. Her Normal Attacks aren't that strong, so it should be left for last.

Constellation and Effects

Collei's Constellations
C1 Deepwood Patrol
When in the party and not on the field, Collei's Energy Recharge is increased by 20%
C2 Through Hill and Copse
The Passive Talent Floral Sidewinder is changed to this:
The Floral Ring will grant the character the Sprout effect from Floral Sidewinder upon return, dealing 40% of Collei's ATK as Dendro DMG to nearby opponents for 3s. From the moment of using Floral Brush to the moment when this instance of Sprout effect ends, if any of your party members triggers Burning, Quicken, Aggravate, Spread, Bloom, Hyperbloom, or Burgeon reactions, the Sprout effect will be extended by 3s. The Sprout effect can only be extended this way once. If another Sprout effect is triggered during its initial duration, the initial effect will be removed. Requires you to have unlocked the Floral Sidewinder Passive Talent.
C3 Scent of Summer
Increases the Level of Floral Brush by 3. Maximum upgrade level is 15.
C4 Gift of the Woods
Using Trump-Card Kitty will increase all nearby characters' Elemental Mastery by 60 for 12s (not including Collei herself).
C5 All Embers

C6 Forest of Falling Arrows
When the Floral Ring hits opponents, it will create a miniature Cuilein-Anbar that will deal 200% of Collei's ATK as Dendro DMG. Each Floral Brush can only create one such miniature Cuilein-Anbar.

Best Constellations Rating and Explanation

Rating Constellation Effect / Merits
C1 ★★☆ • A small but impactful effect that reduces Collei's Energy requirements.
C2 ★★★ • Further increases Collei's off-field utility as a Sub-DPS.

C2 is a Good Stopping Point

Collei's 2nd Constellation lets you have additional Dendro Reaction procs which will help you set up more Dendro Reactions. It's an excellent tool if your Elemental Burst is still on Cooldown. With the effect's max duration of 6 seconds, it can cover nearly half of the downtime from her Elemental Burst!

Thoughts about Collei

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Cyno ImageCyno I once helped Collei seal away in her body, but the process was an unthinkably painful one. To many, enduring that kind of pain would be a prospect more terrifying than death, so it was very admirable that she was able to persevere through it.
Genshin Impact - Faruzan ImageFaruzan Ah, Collei... She's respectful toward her elders, diligent, and has a hard-working attitude — truly the perfect student! Children like her deserve all the affection and praise. Tighnari really has no reason to be as strict as he has been. Hmph... I need to find a way to win her over... Ahem! What I meant to say was, as a senior scholar, I should find ways to improve the learning environment of younger students.
Genshin Impact - Kaveh ImageKaveh I've met Collei quite a few times now. As Tighnari's student and assistant, she follows him everywhere. With her diligence and patience, she's much more responsible than most other kids her age. But, umm... I can also tell that she's got a lot going on inside.
Genshin Impact - Nahida ImageNahida When I heard her story for the first time, her tenacity shone through like a dazzling gemstone. She's been through so much... I hope that just as the rainforest supports all kinds of life, Sumeru will always provide a safe and nurturing environment for her, so that she can grow up healthy and strong.
Genshin Impact - Nilou ImageNilou She sometimes comes to watch my performances. She's a really hard-working Trainee Forest Ranger. One time, she warned me about getting lost. What did she mean by that? It's not like I've gotten lost before...
Genshin Impact - Tighnari ImageTighnari When that child was first brought here, she was effectively illiterate. It wasn't a huge issue, though. She's a hard worker and a diligent student, so she's made good progress. Still, her goal is to learn advanced medical techniques, so she still has a long way to go. She sometimes puts too much pressure on herself...Help her out when you can, would you? Consider it a favor for me as her mentor. Thanks a lot.

Collei's Thoughts About Others

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber About Amber
Amber is amazing. She's friendly and has tons of enthusiasm, plus she's really brave and always does the right thing... She's the person I admire most of all! She's like a cozy fire that makes everyone around her feel warm. There's no way I'd be where I am today without her... So much time has gone by — I bet she's even more cool and confident than ever these days! Who knows if I'll ever be able to match her.
Genshin Impact - Cyno ImageCyno About Cyno
Um... I'd rather not talk about him, if that's okay? Oh, no — the General Mahamatra isn't a bad guy or anything. Matter of fact, I have him to thank for bringing me back from Mondstadt to Sumeru and finding me a safe place to stay. It's just that... whenever I'm reminded of the sealing process just before leaving Mondstadt... ooh... the back of my neck starts hurting again...
Genshin Impact - Dori ImageDori About Dori
I ran into her once on forest ranger duty. She pulled out a bottle of fruit juice from her bag that looked really tasty, as if she somehow knew I was thirsty... Fortunately, Master was there, and he stopped me from spending all of my hard-earned Mora in a moment of weakness...
Genshin Impact - Fischl ImageFischl About Fischl
...''Prinzessin der Verurteilung''? ... Mmm, nope, sorry. I wasn't in Mondstadt for very long, so I. didn't hear of her. That name, though... 'grimace'... Ahem, nothing.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya About Kaeya
How's everyone in Mondstadt, are they good? I caused so much trouble back then, I sometimes wonder if I should make some time to go back there and apologize... Hmm, but what if I ran into the Cavalry Captain, and he started teasing me? ... Yeah, there's no rush, maybe I'll leave it a while longer.
Genshin Impact - Kaveh ImageKaveh About Kaveh
The General Mahamatra once brought him to our place for a meal. From the moment the fruit arrived on the table, he ranted non-stop about his difficult and stubborn roommate for the entire meal. We didn't get a single word in the whole time. We just nodded along and tried to stifle our laughter. It took a lot of effort.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa About Lisa
After all this time, Lisa still calls me ''Little Collei'' when she writes to me. I feel like by now she... hmm? She calls you ''cutie''? Hahaha... Sorry, I don't mean to laugh, um... but I must say, that makes me feel a lot better.
Genshin Impact - Nahida ImageNahida About Lesser Lord Kusanali
The Dendro Archon... When I was a kid, there were so many times when I just wanted to scream out to the gods and ask them why, why did I have to go through so much pain...? 'sigh' But, for all I know, maybe the gods feel just as helpless about everything they have to endure as I did back then.
Genshin Impact - Nilou ImageNilou About Nilou
She seems a little absent-minded. If she ever comes to perform around Gandharva Ville, I'm worried she'll end up wandering off into the forest and getting lost... So I'll have to watch out for her, as a responsible forest ranger trainee should.
Genshin Impact - Tighnari ImageTighnari About Tighnari
Although Master can be quite stern and is always criticizing adventurers for carelessly eating poisonous mushrooms, he is actually a gentle soul. He's so patient when he tutors me, and he even reads out letters from Mondstadt for me. I've always been very grateful to him.
