Genshin Impact best Klee build, weapons, and best Klee F2P options

Jumpty Dumpty had a great fall and blew up

The best Genshin Impact Klee build gives the pint-sized bomb fanatic a better chance at holding her own on the field.

Klee is a tough character to integrate in your party in most cases, thanks to a few unique properties that work well in the story, but don't necessarily translate into battle.

Regardless of her quirks, though, Klee's skill makes her useful in setting up Pyro reactions, including the newly buffed Dendro reactions such as Burning.

Genshin Impact Klee build

Klee works a bit differently from other main DPS characters since she has a bonus Pyro damage stat that increases her Pyro power as she levels up. Rather than prioritizing critical hits, it's best to push her Pyro damage up as high as possible first before looking at critical hits.

Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds is a 5-star catalyst that's usually considered the best choice for Klee. It increases movement speed, which doesn't matter too much for Klee, and grants an eight percent elemental damage buff while the character is on the field, which stacks four times. Klee's best ability is her elemental skill, which works while she's off-field, though Lost Prayer's effect ends when she leaves the field. This weapon means Klee has to be your main DPS to get the full effect, so You'll want to set up reactions for Klee to trigger to help increase the damage she deals.

Skyward Atlas is another solid choice and one that's easier to obtain, since it lives in the permanent banner. It gives the user a hefty elemental boost and has a decent chance of summoning a vortex that deals extra damage when the equipping character uses a normal attack.

Tulaytullah's Remembrance is normally Wanderer's signature weapon, but it actually suits Klee's slow attack pattern pretty well. Using an elemental skill raises the user's normal attack speed and damage by a set amount. Klee's normal attacks are exceptionally slow, and while most of her damage comes from her skill or charged attack, Remembrance's buff lets you get more use out of her while she's on field.

Sacrificial Fragments is your best choice on the 4-star side. It comes with a sizeable elemental mastery buff for its secondary stat and has a high chance of resetting the user's skill cooldown.

The Crimson Witch of Flames artifact set, which you can get from the Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula domain, is the perfect set for Klee. Here’s what it does:

  • Two-piece: Pyro DMG Bonus +15 percent
  • Four-piece: Increases Overloaded and Burning DMG by 40 percent. Increases Vaporize and Melt DMG by 15 percent. Using an Elemental Skill increases 2-Piece Set effects by 50 percent for 10s. Max 3 stacks.

The two piece bonus is good enough, but the four piece makes Klee more useful for triggering elemental reactions and even bumps up damage for the two weaker Pyro reactions. The extra Pyro buff from the four-piece effect is an excellent bonus as well.

Klee is one of the most fun to use for fans of Pyro.

Klee has a few good F2P options if you're not keen on throwing your Primogems at the weapon banner.

Mappa Mare, the craftable catalyst, increases elemental mastery and raises the user's elemental damage after they cause an elemental reaction. Both buffs are, admittedly, rather low, but they get the job done.

An equally strong choice is the 3-star Thrilling Tales of Dragon Slayer, which gives the user a sizeable attack buff for 10 seconds when they enter combat. It's a handy way to help Klee hold her own in between using her skill and ultimate.

The Martial Artist artifact's four-piece set is useful early in the game before you can access the Palace of Zhou Formula. It increases the user's attack and boosts it again after the wearer uses their elemental skill.

Is Klee good in Genshin Impact?

Klee is a bit of an odd character. Her normal and charged attack scalers are high for a catalyst user, but her attack speed is painfully slow. Combine that with the unusual trajectory patterns of her bouncing bombs, and it makes setting up combos and reactions a bit difficult.

Klee's skill creates a small explosion and sets out Pyro mines that explode when touched or after a few seconds. It has two charges, and the mines remain active while Klee is off-field. It's the most useful ability in Klee's kit and lets you set up for Pyro reactions using other characters if you need to.

Klee's burst summons a giant Dumpty that fires a Pyro laser at foes for 10 seconds. It's fairly powerful, though a bit unwieldy.

Unlike Genshin characters who made their debut later in the RPG's life, Klee is fairly basic. That's all there is to her skills, and her most useful passive skill is Pounding Surprise, which has a chance of creating a Spark that increases the power of Klee's next charged attack by 50 percent.

Should I pull for Klee?

Klee is a difficult one to justify pulling for if you're only concerned about a strong Spiral Abyss team. There are much more useful Pyro characters out there, including Xiangling, who you get for free and works as a sub-DPS and main DPS, and there's at least one more on the way in the Fontaine updates. Unless you just like Klee and want her in your party, we recommend passing on her banner.

That wraps up our Klee build! If you’re looking for more builds, we’ve got plenty for you to look through - such as our Thoma build, Yoyima build, and Alloy build!
