The tiniest and most explosive Knight (and cause of Mondstadt citizen’s concerns) is Genshin Impact’s Klee, and she is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. She’s a five-star, pyro, catalyst character that is easy to build and easy to use. Throw her bombs and away you go – Klee’s blasting through the competition! Klee’s mother – Genshin Impact Alice – may not be around to keep an eye on her and stop her from getting into trouble, characters like Albedo and Jean help to contain the blasts. We’ll run you through all of Klee’s active and passive skills, make sure you know exactly what it costs to ascend her, and let you know the best Genshin Klee build, featuring which weapons and artifacts to use.

Here’s our Genshin Impact’s Klee build to get the best out of them pint-sized pyromaniac.
What’s the best Genshin Impact Klee build?
Klee is a bit of an odd one in that she was super popular during her first banner but has since dropped off a little, especially in late-game content. As more characters come out, she’s benched more often than not – mostly due to her skill-based gameplay and slow speed.
Klee makes for a great DPS or sub-DPS, especially in a burgeon or mono pyro team. A mono pyro team has to be the easiest team comp to play her with, though. She has plenty of mobility and animation cancels to reap, and her charged attacks have the potential to deal heaps of damage while also allowing you to stunlock or juggle targets. Additionally, stunlocked enemies can’t fight back – meaning you don’t necessarily need a shield in a Klee team. You can also use her skill for off-field pyro application and damage.
In other words, Klee is an amazing unit when in capable hands and paired up with the right team, but she can certainly take some getting used to and can be outshone by other pyro characters.
What are the best Genshin Impact Klee weapons?
Surprisingly, when it comes to picking weapons for Klee, the top spots mostly go to four-stars. Despite her being a five-star unit, she doesn’t have a specific weapon that runs alongside her in banners, so we had to get creative. That said, the two five-star catalysts that can be gained from the standard banner are both very helpful for her; Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds adds a good chunk to her crit rate and makes her quicker in battle, whereas the Skyward Atlas will up her attack.
The Widsith is easily the best four-star choice, and the best overall pick if you’ve got it at refinement rank five. Solar Pearl, obtained through the battle pass, is another great four-star choice due to its high damage, crit rate boost, and synergy with Klee’s A4 passive. The main drawback with Solar Pearl is that it buffs everything but her charged attacks, which are an important part of her kit.
|Weapon||Effect||How to obtain|
|Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds (five-star)||Bonus effect: Increases crit rate
Skill: Increases Klee’s movement speed by 10%. When in battle, she earns an elemental damage bonus every four seconds. Max four stacks. This lasts until Klee falls or leaves combat.
|The Widsith (four-star)||Bonus effect: Increases crit damage
Skill: When Klee takes to the field, she gains a random theme song for ten seconds. This can only occur once every 30 seconds. Here are the different songs:
|Skyward Atlas (five-star)||Bonus effect: Increases attack
Skill: Increases elemental damage bonus by 12%. Normal attack hits have a 50% chance to earn the Favor of the Clouds, which actively seeks out nearby enemies to attack for 15 seconds, dealing 160% attack damage.
|Solar Pearl (four-star)||Bonus effect: Increases crit rate
Skill: Normal attacks increase Klee’s elemental skill and elemental burst damage by 20% for six seconds. Elemental skill or elemental burst attacks increase normal attack damage by 20% for six seconds.

What are the best Genshin Impact Klee artifacts?
The best universal artifact set for Klee is a combination of two Crimson Witch of Flames with an attack bonus two-piece. For the attack pieces, you can either go with Gladiator’s Finale or Shimenawa’s Reminiscence, which allows you to pick the two with the best stats and sub-stats while also providing her with both attack and pyro damage bonuses.
A full set of Crimson Witch of Flames is also a great choice, especially for reaction builds, as its pyro damage boost really helps her bring the pain when combined with her Jumpty Dumpty charges. Of course, this set can be quite tricky to get good stats and substats on, though, so you might need a lick of luck from the RNG archons.
|Artifact set||Effect||How to obtain|
|Crimson Witch of Flames||Two equipped: Pyro damage bonus
Four equipped: Increases overloaded and burning damage by 40% and vaporize and melt damage by 15%. Using an elemental skill increases the two-piece set effect by 50% for ten seconds (maximum of three stacks).
|Hidden Palace of Zhou Formula domain|
|Gladiator’s Finale||Two equipped: Attack increase
Four equipped: Not recommended
|World and weekly bosses, Gladiator’s Finale artifact strongbox|
|Shimenawa’s Reminiscence||Two equipped: Attack increase
Four equipped: Not recommended
|Momiji-Dyed Court domain|
