Klee in her trailer

Klee is a 5-star pyro catalyst user from the region of Mondstadt. She appears within the Trifolium Chapter where she is mentioned as one of the strongest fighters in Mondstadt at the tavern. Klee also appears within Mona’s story quest.

Klee is an official member of the Knights of Favonius known as the Spark Knight. She was taught from a young age by her mother Alice about how to create explosive bombs. Alice is a renowned adventurer and is also the author of the Teyvat Travel Guide. Klee sees her mother as a big role model and wishes to become like her when she grows up. After her parents left on a dangerous journey, they entrusted Klee to the Knights of Favonius. Jean is constantly looking after Klee’s wellbeing; afraid that her destructiveness could bring harm to herself and the rest of Mondstadt.

Fun Fact: Dodoco is a doll that Alice made for Klee to ensure that she would never be lonely. Klee sees Dodoco as her best friend and never goes anywhere without him.

Klee’s favorite toy is the explosives her mother taught her how to make. Many rumors have sprouted across the city of Mondstadt about a red knight destroying countless amounts of enemies in Stormbearer Mountain and even changing its landscape. In reality, Klee placed too many charges of her bomb, destroying the nearby landscape in the process.

Klee’s destructive capabilities have everyone in the Knights of Favonius worried, especially the Acting Grandmaster Jean. Klee isn’t bad by nature, but her playful and curious nature always results in her taking action before she thinks about the consequences. This has led her to constantly getting punished with solitary confinement by Jean to prevent her from causing any more damage.


Klee Skill Talents

As a catalyst user, all of Klee’s skills are capable of dealing Pyro DMG. Her main damage source will come from her charged attack or her elemental burst. Klee’s charged attack does use a lot of stamina and she only has 3 attacks in her animation. She is also rather frail and will have trouble dodging enemies when her stamina is constantly being used up in her charged attack. It is recommended you pair Klee with a healer like Qiqi or a shield character like Diona.

Klee dodoco tales nuild
Klee’s normal and charged attack

Klee’s normal attack, Kaboom!, allows her to deal up to 3 bursts of AoE Pyro DMG to enemies with one of her bombs. Although Klee only has 3 charges with her attack, each hit will averagely deal more damage to the enemy than other catalyst users. To fully benefit from her normal attack talent you will need to learn how to animation cancel her attacks. It will allow Klee to attack faster if she jumps or sprint before she attacks. Klee’s charged attack costs 50 stamina, but will allow her to deal increased AoE damage to enemies. Her charged attack does have a long casting time before she launches it, and also uses a lot of stamina. However, her ascension talents balance it out when she obtains an Explosive Spark. Lastly, Klee’s normal and charged attack counts as heavy hits to enemies. This allows her to shatter Frozen enemies, deal extra damage to Geo constructs, and mine ore.

Klee DPS build
Klee’s elemental skill

Klee’s elemental skill, Jumpy Dumpty, deals AoE Pyro DMG to enemies as Klee launches a bomb at them. The bomb will bounce 3 times and will deal damage with each bounce. On the third bounce, the bomb will split into 8 mines that will damage enemies as they come into contact with it or after a short period of time has passed. Klee’s elemental skill comes with 2 charges, but takes 20 seconds to recharge each charge. The mines have a duration of 15 seconds. Jumpy Dumpty recharges 3.5 energy for Klee if it hits at least 1 enemy.

Klee’s elemental skill is great to deal Pyro DMG toward the enemy and will also allow her to gain an Explosive Spark when her ascension talent is unlocked. It does come with a long cooldown, so it is not always accessible in a battle. The mines are also great to deal extra damage to the enemies, but rely on them coming into contact with it before it can trigger.

Note: Certain characters like Jean, Sucrose, and Anemo Traveler can pull the mines together with their skills. Venti’s burst can not pick up Klee’s bombs.

best weapon for Klee Genshin Impact
Klee’s burst

Klee’s elemental burst, Sparks ‘n’ Splash, deals massive amounts of Pryo AoE damage over the span of 10 seconds. The energy cost is 60 and it has a cooldown of 15 seconds. Klee’s burst is capable of dealing a lot of damage, especially when it triggers a reaction like Melt or Vaporize. Her burst will send out attacks 20 times over 5 sessions of 4 in a span of 10 seconds. It is not a quick time burst, but will greatly reduce the health of enemies.

Klee is best used as a main DPS character as her charged attack pairs well with both her ascension skills. As a Pyro character, she is capable of triggering powerful reaction damage with your other teammates.


Klee Passive Talents

klee dps build
Klee Talent Screen

Klee’s ascension talents boost the power of her charged attack and allows her to gain more energy for herself and her team when she lands a critical hit with her charged attack. Her passive talent allows her to display the unique resources of Mondstadt, allowing players to gather resources like Dandelion or Small Lamp Grass.

Klee’s passive talent, All Of My Treasures!, allows her to see all resources unique to Mondstadt on the mini-map when she is in the party. This talent has no combat capabilities, but is great for resource gathering.

Klee’s ascension talent 1, Pounding Surprise, allows her to obtain an Explosive Spark when her normal attack or elemental skill deals damage. This Explosive Spark has a 50% to trigger and will display a tiny clover floating around Klee when activated. When a charged attack is used with the Explosive Spark active, it will consume the Explosive Spark and allow her charged attack to deal more damage and cost no stamina. This ascension talent pairs well with Klee’s charged attack as it boosts its power and allows her to conserve her stamina. It is also easily activated as Klee only needs to use her normal attack or elemental skill to obtain an Explosive Spark.

Klee’s ascension 4 talent Sparkling Burst increases elemental energy by 2 for all party members when her charged attack lands a critical hit on the enemy. This talent allows Klee to give her teammates a boost in energy to recharge their boost. This ascension talent is great for support characters in the team like Bennett who needs their burst to support the team. This talent is also great for Klee to recharge her own burst. The only downside of Sparkling Burst is that it relies on Klee getting a critical hit with her charged attack, and will not work when her regular normal attack is used.

Klee gets a Pyro DMG Bonus% based on her ascension level.

Klee Constellations

co klee build
Klee Constellation

Klee’s constellation levels increase her Pyro DMG and allow her to support her team by lowering the enemy’s defense and increased energy regeneration for the party. However, as a 5-star character, it will be hard to fully unlock all of her constellations.

Klee’s C1: Chained Reactions, allows her to deal extra Pyro damage to enemies when she uses her attack and skills. This damage is equal to 120% of her elemental burst’s damage. Overall, this constellation will allow Klee to deal an extra set of damage with her skills, but it will not always activate, so it shouldn’t be heavily relied on.

At C2: Explosive Frags, Klee’s mine from her elemental skill will decrease enemy defenses by 23% for 10 seconds. This constellation is great for Klee and her teammates. It will allow characters to deal more damage to enemies with the lowered defense. However, it does require enemies to be damaged by the mines first.

At C4:Sparkly Explosion, Klee will deal 555% of her ATK as AoE Pyro DMG if she leaves the field during the duration of her burst. This explosion will massively damage the enemies, but requires Klee to leave the field during her burst. To maximize the damage from her burst and still trigger her constellation effect, it is recommended you wait until the final set of Sparks ‘n’ Splash goes off, and then switch to another character.

C6: Blazing Delight allows Klee to support her teammates during the duration of her burst. When her burst is in effect, all party members will continuously regenerate energy. All party members will also gain a 10% Pyro DMG Bonus for 25% when Klee’s burst is used. Not only does her C6 help her teammates, Klee’s C6 effect also allows her to recharge her own burst and boost up her Pyro DMG.

Main DPS

best weapons for Klee
Main DPS Klee

This build for Klee boosts the power of her Pyro DMG and ATK using a 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flames and Gladiator’s Finale. This is a constant boost, allowing Klee to deal increased damage with all of her skills.

For the team composition, Klee can work with a variety of other characters. Bennett in particular will give her ATK a boost and heal Klee while his burst is active. You can also use Diona as she can generate a shield and heal with her skillset. Pairing Klee up with another DPS character like Ganyu can also help you deal more damage with reactions. Lastly, Barbara’s elemental skill will be used to heal Klee and reduce the amount of stamina she consumes.

The recommended weapon for Klee for this build is the 5-star Skyward Atlas. However, any 5-star catalyst will work well with Klee, depending on your team. The Skyward Atlas boosts Klee’s ATK and Elemental DMG Bonus%. It will also have a chance to summon a cloud that will deal damage to enemies when Klee uses her normal attack. Compared to the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, the Skyward Altas gives a higher elemental bonus than the Lost Prayer when they are at the same refinement level. However, you will sacrifice a sub-stat in Crit Rate in the process.

The Dodoco Tales can be obtained during the 1.6 event and is a great weapon choice for Klee. It can be easily obtained and refined during the event. Dodoco Tales also has the same color scheme as her, allowing Klee to match with her weapon. This weapon will give Klee a boost to her ATK stat. In its passive effect, the Dodoco Tales increases Klee’s charged attack damage for 6 seconds after she hits an enemy with her normal attack. Charged attacks will also boost Klee’s normal attack. This weapon fits into Klee’s skillset as she will predominantly use her charged attack and normal attack to deal damage as a Main DPS.

If you have access to the battle pass, the 4-star Solar Pearl is a decent choice for Klee. This weapon boosts Klee’s normal attack when she uses her elemental burst or skill and will boost her skill & burst when she uses her normal attack. This weapon does not work on Klee’s charged attack, which she heavily relies on to deal damage. However, its passive stat will boost her overall Crit Rate and is a great weapon to power up the damage from her normal attack, elemental burst, and elemental skill.

The 4-stat Blackcliff Amulet can also be a great weapon for Klee to boost the power of her critical damage. It does come with a fatal flaw that makes its passive effect useless in a boss fight as it requires Klee to defeat an enemy before she can obtain the ATK buff. It can be bought in the store and is a good F2P option for those who don’t have access to other weapons.

Klee’s artifact set should be the 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flames and Gladiator’s Finale. She can also use the 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flames set, but the long cooldown on her elemental skill prevents her from fully reaping its benefit. The 4-piece Wanderer’s Troupe is another good option as it increases her reaction damage and charged attack damage. However, Klee’s charged attack requires a lot of energy and constantly using it will quickly drain you out of stamina.

For her artifact stats:

  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Pyro DMG Bonus%
  • Circlet: Crit Rate or Crit DMG

Focuses on Crit DMG, Crit Rate, or ATK on her sub-stats. Elemental Mastery will be useful to boost her reaction damage, and energy recharge will help her charge up her burst.

Reaction DPS

build for klee
Klee build

This build for Klee focuses on her reaction damage and increasing her damage through Vaporize and Melt. All of Klee’s attacks can deal Pyro DMG, applying her to easily apply reactions. Klee’s main damage will come from her charged attack and her normal attack talent should be leveled up first.

For her teammates, you will want to use characters that can apply Hydro, Electro, or Cryo on enemies. This build will use Fischl as she can deal passive Electro DMG with her elemental skill. Barbara will serve as the healer of the team and apply Wet to enemies. Her ascension 1 talent also reduces stamina consumption of your active character during her elemental skill. Lastly, Sucrose will boost the reaction damage of the team. You can switch each character with characters of different elements. Adding another Pyro character like Bennett will also greatly boost Klee’s damage.

Like the previous builds, Klee can use any of the 5-star weapons like the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, Skyward Atlas, and Memory of Dust. The Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds will boost her Crit Rate and movement speed during battle. It will also increase her elemental damage every 4 seconds for up to 4 stacks. This buff will remain until Klee falls in combat or leaves the field. Hitting critical hits will also allow Klee to gain energy for the entire team. Lastly, the Memory of Dust is great for Klee, but requires a shield character on the team for it to fully benefit her.

Klee’s 4-star recommended weapon is The Widsith. This weapon will provide her with a random effect for 10 seconds from increasing Base ATK, Elemental DMG, or Elemental Mastery. Although it is random and has a cooldown of 30 seconds, each buff will increase Klee’s overall damage. It also comes with a passive stat of Crit DMG, allowing her critical hits to deal greater damage.

Due to Klee’s long cooldown on her elemental skill, the Sacrificial Fragments is another viable option for her. This weapon boosts her elemental mastery and has a chance to end the cooldown of her elemental skill when she uses it. It will boost her reaction damage and is only viable if you plan on using her elemental skill often. It also pairs well with the 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flame since the increased Pyro DMG will only activate after Klee uses her elemental skill.

For craftable weapons, the 4-star Mappa Mare can be used to increase her reaction damage with its elemental mastery sub stat. In addition, it gives Klee an elemental damage bonus when she triggers a reaction.

In the early game, go for the 3-star Amber Catalyst as that weapon boosts Klee’s overall ATK and boosts her elemental damage when she uses her normal attack on an enemy. The Twin Nephrite can also work since it boosts her Crit Rate, but requires her to defeat an enemy before she can activate its passive effect.

Klee’s artifact set will be the 4-piece Crimson Witch of Flame as its 2-piece set increases her Pyro DMG and the 4-piece set boosts the power of her Pyro reactions. The only downside to this artifact set is that it requires her elemental skill to be used to activate the second effect of the 4-piece bonus. Since Klee has a long cooldown on her elemental skill, this bonus won’t consistently be active. You can also use a 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flame and Gladiator’s Finale to get a constant buff to her stats instead. A 2-piece Crimson Witch of Flame and Noblesse Oblige can also be used to increase the power of Klee’s burst.

For her artifact stats:

  • Sands: ATK%
  • Goblet: Pyro DMG Bonus%
  • Circlet: Crit Rate or Crit DMG

For the sub-stats, look for Crit Rate, Crit DMG, ATK%, and Elemental Mastery. Energy Recharge will also be nice to charge up Klee’s burst more quickly.

Ganyu’s burst has a large range and can deal massive Cryo DMG to enemies. This damage will be further amplified with the Melt reaction.

Bennett and Klee make a deadly combo as Bennett is capable of healing and powering up Klee’s damage. The Pyro team boost will also raise the ATK of the entire team when both of them are on the same team.

Barbara is an easy to obtain character that will act as a healer for Klee. Her elemental skill will also reduce stamina consumption while Klee is in its effect. She can also be used to apply Wet to enemies for reactions.


Fischl can deal passive Electro DMG and trigger Overload with Klee.

Diona can apply Cryo to the enemies and heal with her burst. She can also generate a shield with her elemental skill to protect Klee from damage.

Sucrose will boost the elemental mastery of the team and power up Klee’s reaction damage. She can also pull Klee’s mine together to make them come into contact with the enemy.

Conclusion

best weapon for klee
Klee in 1.6

Klee is a powerful Pyro character that can deal massive amounts of Pyro DMG. Her best damage source is her charged attack, but she is limited by her consumption of stamina and weak defenses. Klee will greatly benefit from having a healer or shield generator on the team to protect and heal her while her stamina recharges. She is a great Pyro DPS and is capable of dealing Pyro DMG with all her skills. Klee might be just a child, but she is surely a force to be reckoned with, and is sure to leave a blaze of fire in her path.
