So let’s dive into the world of Genshin Impact and explore the power of the Dendro element!

List characters

Collie Genshin Impact

  • Weapon: Bow
  • Rarity:4 star
  • Best Role: Dendro Application, Sub-DPS

Collei is one of the first characters that players meet and can obtain for free through a limited-time event. After the version 3.1 update, she can also be obtained permanently by clearing Floor 4, Chamber 3 of Spiral Abyss. Collei’s availability makes it easier for new players to experience the Dendro element.

Collei is notable for her reliable application of Dendro with her Elemental Skill and Burst, making her useful for elemental reactions like Bloom. While her damage multipliers aren’t the highest, she can still serve as a sub-DPS by applying Dendro off-field. Overall, Collei is a decent Dendro character.

Tighnari Genshin Impact

  • Weapon: Bow
  • Rarity: 5 star
  • Best Role: DPS

Despite having the same weapon type and element, Tighnari and Collei have different roles. Tighnari is best used as a Quick-Swap DPS thanks to his strong Dendro application and damage multipliers, but his performance can be inconsistent. 

Tighnari’s main strength lies in triggering Spread reactions among other characters, leading to increased DPS potential. However, his limited off-field application and the presence of better Main DPS characters like Alhaitham make him less popular among Genshin Impact players. Overall, Tighnari and Collei have unique playstyles.

Dendro Traveler
Dendro Traveler Genshin Impact

  • Weapon: Sword
  • Rarity: 5 star
  • Best Role: Burst-support

Dendro Traveler is an excellent option and shares many similarities with Nahida regarding off-field utility, buffing teammates, and Dendro’s reaction damage. This makes the Dendro Traveler an excellent choice for free-to-play players who haven’t obtained Nahida. Additionally, Dendro Traveler has an energy-generating Elemental Skill that functions as a battery and a consistent Elemental Burst with minimal downtime. 

Obtaining the Traveler’s constellations through region exploration and following the story is straightforward. However, it’s important to remember that the ICD limits the frequency of Dendro Core generation for the Traveler, which may not be optimal for Bloom-related team compositions.

Yaoyao Genshin Impact

  • Weapon: Polearm
  • Rarity: 4 star
  • Best Role: Healer, Dendro Application, Battery

Yaoyao, a Dendro Polearm character from Liyue, was previously leaked with official Genshin Impact artwork. Now that she has been officially released in version 3.4, she has quickly become a popular choice among players. This is due to her being the only dedicated Dendro healer in the game, making her an invaluable addition to team compositions that rely on Dendro reactions, especially as these reactions can damage the active character.

Aside from her healing capabilities, Yaoyao can also function as a battery and provide both on and off-field Dendro application using her Elemental Skill and Burst. Obtaining Yaoyao’s first constellation is relatively straightforward and provides significant benefits for teams focused on Dendro DPS. Her other constellations, such as crowd control effects and improved performance, offer further utility.

Alhaitham Genshin Impact

  • Weapon: Sword
  • Rarity: 5 star
  • Best Role: Main DPS (Dendro DMG or Burst DPS), Dendro Enabler

Alhaitham is a top-tier sword user infused with Dendro that focuses on generating Chisel-Light Mirrors to deal massive damage with his auto attacks or Elemental Burst. He is often compared to Keqing due to their similar animations and kits, but Alhaitham is a superb Dendro DPS choice that benefits greatly from Spread reaction. To fully optimize Alhaitham’s performance, players need to use the right on-field combo and team composition.

Alhaitham is best suited to remain active in the field as an on-field DPS and enhance his damage. He lacks off-field Dendro application or utility, making him suitable only for players looking for a Dendro character that can stay in the field for extended periods. Alhaitham is an excellent choice for players searching for an on-field DPS for his primary role.

Nahida Genshin Impact

  • Weapon: Catalyst
  • Rarity: 5 star
  • Best Role: Sub-DPS, Buffer, Dendro Enabler

It is no surprise that Nahida, being the Dendro Archon, excels against other Dendro users. She is unparalleled in Dendro Application utility, as a catalyst user who always performs Dendro-infused attacks. Additionally, her ability to use Dendro Application off-field is remarkable, with no ICD, making her a reliable character in any Dendro-reaction team composition.

Moreover, Nahida’s Elemental Burst may seem weak at first glance, but this would be a common misconception. It is a powerful tool that boosts her and her team’s damage output, with a massive AoE and impressive duration, making it one of the game’s best Elemental Bursts. These factors combined establish Nahida as the best Dendro user in Genshin Impact.
