Introduction to Klee in Genshin Impact

Klee is an explosive 5-star pyro character in Genshin Impact. As one of the strongest pyro damage dealers in the game, Klee can dish out insane amounts of damage when built properly. This comprehensive guide will go over everything you need to know to build the best Klee in Genshin Impact.

Overview of Klee’s Kit

Here’s a quick overview of Klee’s abilities:

  • Normal Attack - Kaboom!: Performs up to 4 consecutive explosive attacks that deal AoE Pyro DMG.
  • Charged Attack - Explosive Spark: Consumes Stamina to deal AoE Pyro DMG after a short casting time.
  • Elemental Skill - Jumpy Dumpty: Throws an explosive bunny that deals AoE Pyro DMG and remains on the field. Hitting it again causes an explosion. Has 2 charges.
  • Elemental Burst - Sparks ‘n’ Splash: Summons a burning field that constantly applies Pyro to enemies inside. It also launches homing firebombs that explode for AoE Pyro DMG.

Klee’s kit revolves around dealing as much Pyro damage as possible through her skills and normal/charged attacks. She excels at triggering elemental reactions like Vaporize and Melt. Her playstyle involves constantly setting up and detonating her mines from Jumpy Dumpty for huge bursts of damage.

Best Teams for Klee

Klee excels in team compositions that enable her to trigger Vaporize for big Pyro damage. Some top teams include:

Vaporize Team

This team focuses on constantly Vaporizing Klee’s attacks using Xingqiu’s Elemental Burst and Sucrose’s crowd control and EM buffs. Bennett provides healing and a huge ATK buff.

Overload Team

Fischl and Beidou apply Electro for Klee to trigger Overload explosions. Their bursts deal off-field damage while Klee is on the field. Bennett is flex support.

Melt Team

  • Klee
  • Rosaria
  • Diona
  • Sucrose/Venti

Cryo characters like Rosaria and Diona enable Klee to Melt Pyro damage. Anemo crowd control groups enemies together for Klee’s AoE damage to shine.

Talent Priority

Klee gains the most from leveling her Elemental Burst first since it is a significant source of her damage. Here are her talent priorities:

  1. Elemental Burst
  2. Normal Attack
  3. Elemental Skill

Constellations

Klee’s constellations provide damage boosts, but are not completely necessary. Here are the effects:

C1 - Elemental Skill gains an extra charge.

C2 - Decreases opponents’ DEF by 23% for 10s after using Charged Attacks.

C4 - After using Elemental Burst, 2 sparks will fall around Klee for 2s, dealing 31% of Sparks ‘n’ Splash’s DMG per hit.

C6 - Within 15s after Elemental Burst ends, Klee’s Charged Attacks gain a DMG Bonus equal to 2.2x her Elemental Mastery.

F2P / Low Spender Build

For players without Klee’s signature 5-star weapons, these 4-star options work well:

  • Weapon: The Widsith, Solar Pearl
  • Artifacts: 4pc Crimson Witch of Flames
  • Main Stats: ATK% Sands, Pyro DMG Goblet, CRIT Circlet
  • Substats: CRIT Rate > CRIT DMG > ATK% > Elemental Mastery/Energy Recharge
  • Team Comp: Xingqiu, Sucrose, Bennett

Focus on stacking tons of ATK and CRIT through substats. Use an ATK% sands until you get enough CRIT from substats to switch to a CRIT circlet.

High Investment / Whale Build

For players who want to max out Klee’s potential:

  • Weapon: Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds
  • Artifacts: 4pc Lavawalker
  • Main Stats: ATK% Sands, Pyro DMG Goblet, CRIT Circlet
  • Substats: CRIT Rate > CRIT DMG > ATK%
  • Team Comp: Xingqiu, Albedo, Zhongli

Lavawalker will outdamage Crimson Witch in teams where Klee can consistently apply Pyro. Zhongli’s resistance shred and shield boost Klee’s damage immensely.

FAQ

What is the optimal combo for Klee?

Klee’s highest damage combo is:

  1. Apply Pyro with Normal Attacks
  2. Use Elemental Skill twice
  3. Swap to Xingqiu to apply Hydro
  4. Swap back to Klee and use Elemental Burst
  5. Weave in 1-2 Normal Attacks between Charged Attacks to trigger Vaporize

This combo lets you start Pyro application, get Jumpy Dumpty mines set up, and then Vaporize Klee’s hard-hitting Charged Attacks inside her Elemental Burst field.

What stats should I prioritize for Klee?

Focus on building CRIT Rate to around 50-60% from substats, then stack as much CRIT DMG, ATK%, and Pyro DMG as possible. Some Energy Recharge is also good for burst uptime.

Is Lost Prayer or Skyward Atlas better for Klee?

Lost Prayer is generally considered better due to the stacking DMG bonus. However, Skyward Atlas is very close in performance, so use whichever has better substats.

Should I go for 4pc Crimson Witch or Lavawalker on Klee?

4pc Crimson Witch is generally recommended for the Vaporize bonus. However, 4pc Lavawalker can outdamage it in teams where Klee applies consistent Pyro, like with Xingqiu.

Is C2 Klee worth it?

Klee C2 is a nice boost but not gamechanging. The DEF reduction helps her deal more damage but isn’t necessary. Save for other important constellations or characters instead.

What talent should I crown first on Klee?

Klee’s Elemental Burst gains the most from crowning first since it makes up a significant portion of her damage. After that, crowning her Normal Attacks also provides a nice boost.

Conclusion

Klee is one of the most explosively powerful DPS characters when played properly. Developing the right team and artifact set for her along with mastering animation cancels in her combo will allow you to unleash her full explosive potential. Klee provides some of the highest single target and AOE Pyro damage in Genshin Impact when built right.
