Genshin Impact 3.0 update introduces Travelers to new playable characters, with two possessing the Dendro element. A member of the Forest Watchers, Collei, spends her time under the teaching of Tighnari, but not much is known about this vibrant character.
Eager to receive good grades on her upcoming examination, HoYoverse released a new character trailer for Collei. So let's look at the 4-star Dendro character and what we can anticipate from her when the Genshin Impact 3.0 update launches.
Genshin Impact 3.0 Update – Collei's Story
Travelers familiar with Collei will recall her adventures from the Genshin Impact manga series, but time has passed when we catch up with her in Sumeru. While her experiences continue when the Traveler and Paimon catch up with her, very few are aware of her past.
Now a Trainee Forest Ranger, Collei works alongside another Forest Ranger, Tighnari, who also patrols the lush Avidya Forest in Genshin Impact. Her reserved demeanor is renowned throughout the Gandharva Ville, who have praised this bright trainee despite not mentioning much about herself.

Nevertheless, Collei is dedicated to her ranger duty and remains cheerful and eager to protect the Avidya Forest. However, Collei's past continues to linger in her mind. Moreover, her introverted nature prevents her from disclosing anything to anyone.
Genshin Impact 3.0 Update – Collei Voice Actors
HoYoverse has officially announced the talented voice actresses who will lend their unique talents to the upcoming character. American voice actress Christina Costello, notable for her roles in Gargoyle, Hanako's Flower Shop, and Cosmic Wonders is providing the English voice for Collei.

Her Japanese counterpart, Ryōko Maekawa, will be voicing Collei and, much like Costello, has a diverse filmography with some high profiled roles. Maekawa has lent her talents to roles in Magic of Stella, Fairy Tail, Persona 5, and Yu-Gi-Oh!
Genshin Impact 3.0 Update – Collei Talents
Developer HoYoverse has explained much of Collei's talents to great detail as she's been described as a Dendro bow wielder who primarily deals damage off-field. Her Normal Attack, Supplicant's Bowmanship, allows her to launch four attacks consecutively. Her Charged Attack enables her to establish a more precise shot aimed at her enemies, dealing Dendro DMG.
However, while aiming at her enemies, she can amass Dendro power on the arrow's point before firing the Dendro-infused arrow. Floral Brush is her Elemental Skill which sees her throw a ring that deals Dendro DMG to all enemies in contact, which will reset before dealing additional Dendro DMG.
Her Elemental Burst, Trump-Card Kitty, lets Collei utilize her ragdoll, Cuilein-Anbar, by launching it at enemies, which explodes on contact, inflicting AoE Dendro DMG. This sees a zone placed up, which the doll will bounce across for additional AoE Dendro DMG.
Tighnari is positioned as a "burst damage dealer" in Genshin Impact, meaning, together with his bow, he can inflict waves of damage sporadically. His Normal Attack, Khanda Barrier-Buster, allows him to power up his bow to deliver four hard-hitting shots consecutively aimed at his targets.
Collei will be included alongside Tighnari, Diona, and Fischl in Phase I of the Character Event Wish banner, which begins immediately after the Genshin Impact 3.0 update and concludes on 9th September 2022.
Additionally, Collei will appear in one of the upcoming events for the 3.0 update, Graven Innocence, as you'll assist in collecting components for a toy shop in Sumeru.
