The best Genshin Impact Klee build

This pint sized explosives expert can deal a punishing amount of area of effect damage, and we've put together the best Genshin Impact Klee build

This is Klee, one of the gacha characters from Genshin Impact, and she has an incredible build to show you, once she's written it up that is.

Curious about the best Genshin Impact Klee build? The daughter of the intrepid adventurer and fellow guide writer known as Alice, Klee is a five-star Pyro Catalyst user that specializes in giving the Knights of Favonius the runaround while leaving a trail of incendiary mayhem in her wake. Small yet deceptively mighty, Klee’s kit is chock-full of area-of-effect bombs that pack a real punch when paired with the right weapons and artifacts.

We’ve put together the best Genshin Impact Klee build so you can take full advantage of her pyromaniacal tendencies, now that Klee’s rerun banner is out as part of Genshin Impact 2.8. It’s been quite some time since Klee’s graced a banner in Hoyoverse’s anime game, and anyone that wasn’t able to pull her previously will be pleased to know that she’s making a comeback.

Best Genshin Impact Klee build

The best Genshin Impact Klee build is:

  • Weapon: Lost Prayer To The Sacred Winds
  • Artifacts: Crimson Witch Of Flames (four-piece set)

Best Genshin Impact Klee weapon

Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds increases your movement speed by 10%. This is crucial for Klee, who has short-range attacks that necessitate good positioning and the ability to quickly disengage with enemies before they have a chance to counterattack. Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds also grants you a damage bonus to elemental damage every four seconds while in combat, stacking up to four times: 6%, 8%, 10%, 12% and 14% respectively. This effect lasts until Klee is swapped out or falls in battle. It also grants a supplementary 7.5% bonus to your crit rating, and you’re likely to feel the benefit when you’re constantly slinging bombs around.

You could also use Skyward Atlas to increase Klee’s elemental damage by 12%. Once equipped, every normal attack that successfully hits has a 50% chance to produce a cloud that seeks out enemies, dealing 160% attack damage for 15 seconds. Don’t let its 30 second cooldown put you off; the cooldown triggers once the cloud is summoned, meaning there’s only 15 seconds where the effect is completely disabled. 160% is an impressive number no matter which way you slice it, but pairing it with a high DPS character can really elevate Skyward Atlas’ unique effect from strength to strength. This is especially true in the case of Klee, where her normal attack, Kaboom!, should be the priority talent in your rotation.

Crimson Witch of Flames grants a respectable 15% Pyro DMG bonus as a two-piece set. However, as a four-piece, it not only increases Overloaded and Burning DMG by 40%, but also increases Vaporize and Melt DMG by 15%. Klee’s affinity for explosions generates area-of-effect Pyro damage that applies to enemies, creating the perfect opportunity to inflict Genshin Impact elemental reactions on multiple targets simultaneously.

Furthermore, whenever you use Klee’s Elemental Skill, Crimson Witch of Flames upgrades the 15% Pyro damage bonus granted by the two-piece set for 10 seconds by 7.5%. This effect can stack up to three times, meaning that the initial 15% Pyro DMG can increase to a maximum of 37.5%.

Alternatively, you can drop the four-piece set and pair Crimson Witch of Flames with Gladiator’s Finale, which adds an additional +18% attack as standard – perfect for a high DPS character like Klee. However, because Crimson Witch of Flames is just that good, we’ve got to admit this option is really more of a placeholder until you can source that coveted four-piece set.

To make the most of Klee’s capacity for dealing out devastating elemental combos, an accompanying Cryo or Hydro character is a must to trigger those reactions. You’d be hard-pressed to find a character offering better synergy for Klee than Xingqiu. Not only is he a melee character capable of punishing any close-range enemies overwhelming Klee, but his Elemental Burst effect also persists even after switching him out. This allows Klee to trigger Vaporize during every normal attack she dishes out for an extended period of time. We can also recommend Rosaria as her Cryo skills pair well with Klee to produce constant Melt reactions.

Conversely, if you’re looking to capitalise on Klee’s raw damage output, Bennett’s a consistently solid choice to pair with Pyro DPS characters. His Pyro elemental resonance grants a 25% attack boost. Additionally, if you find yourself becoming overwhelmed as Klee, Bennett’s Inspiration Field can provide you with some much-needed AoE healing. What’s more, if Klee’s health is higher than 70%, she gains an attack bonus while standing within the Inspiration Field, making it the gift that keeps on giving.

Klee’s banner also features Heizou, a highly anticipated four-star Anemo character that’s making his debut in the current update. If you’re staking all your wishes on redeeming Klee, there’s a good chance you’ll end up accidentally pulling Heizou instead. If that’s the case, why not take him for a spin and check out our guide to the best Heizou team composition so you can take full advantage of his elemental synergies. If you’ve been following the previews and he’s already a firm favourite of yours, why not familiarise yourself with the Heizou ascension materials required to get him to level 90 as soon as possible.
