Genshin Impact Klee Guide - best build, strengths and weaknesses
| Genshin Impact

Welcome to Pocket Gamer's detailed Genshin Impact Klee guide! Klee is an energetic girl who has a penchant for creating explosives. One of her favourite activities is ‘fish blasting’, which is throwing bombs into a lake to catch fish. While she is technically a member of the Knights of Favonius, she gets into trouble regularly and often tries to flee the crime scene.

Whenever caught, instead of spending her time reflecting on her actions, she spends that time thinking up new explosions and bombs. In the Klee guide below you will find the following features.

Character Appearance

Klee Element / Tier / Rarity / Weapon

Pyro / S Tier / 5* Rarity / Catalyst

In Genshin Impact, Klee uses her bombs to set up Pyro reactions as they explode over and over again. While this allows her to knock back enemies, her short attack requires precision and can lead to unwanted placements. Either way, she excels as a DPS when her Pyro skills are boosted.

How to get Klee?

Klee was only available through the event banner, Sparkling Steps. She is not available in the standard banner.

Genshin Impact Klee Combat Info (Strengths and Weaknesses)

Genshin Impact Klee strengths and weaknesses


  • High Pyro DMG
  • Great for setting up Pyro reactions with her bombs
  • Her bomb’s explosions knock back enemies


  • Her support is stowed away behind her Constellations
  • Short range attacks are hard to aim
  • No lasting effects from her Skill

Best Build for Klee in Genshin Impact

Klee is a great DPS with her Pyro abilities, with either her normal or her charged attacks. While you can use her Elemental Skill against multiple enemies, her Burst attack is greatest when used against one enemy. Boosting her Pyro damage with the Crimson Witch of Flames set ensures that any damage she is dealing or helping deal raises the output through the roof.

You can boost her speed with Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds, giving her more momentum to get up close, let the explosions rumble, and back out when the time’s right.

Best Party Members to match Klee with in Genshin Impact

Premium (Gacha) Team

In Genshin Impact, Klee is best as your primary source of damage. Pick Xingqiu to work with Klee’s Pyro to create Vaporize reactions. Bennett can be your team’s healer, but also will give Pyro resonance which will boost Klee’s damage even more. Venti is great for controlling the field and spreading reactions and Pyro around.

F2P Team

Klee is going to serve as the DPS for this party. Xiangling will help boost Klee’s output with her Pyro resonance, and acts as a general Support. Barbara can heal Klee even when she’s kept in the reserves, which is useful. Fischl can serve to swap, use her Skill, then swap back to Klee, as it will stay out and continue to do damage.
