Birthday: 27 July
Titles: Spark Knight (of the Knights of Favonius), Fleeing Sunlight, Red Burny Girl (by Razor)
Klee is explosively adorable and equally as terrifying. Don't judge her by her diminutive size, as she packs a punch that may even be stronger than everybody's favorite DPS and fellow Pyro user, Diluc. Even as a catalyst user, her regular attacks deal almost as much damage as a claymore user! (At least, when attacking ores.) Still, that's more than the usual tickle-attacks of the other catalyst users. It's explained by Klee actually throwing bombs instead of elemental projectiles.
Her E skill ups the explosion factor by sending out a 'Jumpty Dumpty' that bounces as it deals AoE Pyro DMG. After about 3 bounces, it explodes into several smaller mines that explode with enemy contact or when their duration expires. She can even send out two of them at once!
Her burst, Sparks n' Splash, summons lasers to attack enemies nearby, even those not actively targeted by Klee. The lasers deal AoE Pyro DMG as well. The effect lasts for ten seconds.
How to Get Klee Genshin Impact
The only way to get Klee is to wish for her when her banner is up. Aside from her initial release, her reruns coincide with (or are near) the summer events of the game. If you missed that, you'd need to wait until next year for another chance.
There are rumors of some 5-stars moving to the Standard/Permanent Banner, so eventually, she could be available there. However, Klee is not one of the characters in the running to be relegated to a more permanent availability. Waiting for the following summer is your best option.
Genshin Impact Klee Builds
Unless you have a Klee with her second constellation upgrade, you will only build her as the main DPS. Her best-in-slot artifact is the Crimson Witch of Flames set. It adds a 15% Pyro DMG bonus (2-set) and various boosts to Pyro-related reactions (4-set). Also, it boosts the effects of the former when the character uses their Elemental Skill. All in all, it's a perfect set that massively increases Klee's destruction potential.
Main Stats: ATK%, Pyro DMG Bonus, Crit Rate/DMG
Substats: Crit DMG/Rate, ATK, Energy Recharge
Alternative and Budget Builds
Because of her very specialized nature, she could use only a few other sets. Lavawalker is a good alternative, and the 4-star option is Martial Artist. A combination of Crimson Witch and Gladiator's Finale would also work. Wanderer's Troupe is your last resort if you really have nothing else to give her. In the long run, the other three work better than the latter.
Build the same stats as the above. If you want to use Klee as support with her second constellation upgrade, add some Elemental Mastery.
Her best weapon is the Lost Prayer to the Sacred Winds. Other alternatives are:
- Skyward Atlas
- The Widsith
- Solar Pearl
- Dodoco Tales
- Blackcliff Agate
- Eye of Perception
Genshin Impact Klee Lore (Backstory)
In Mondstadt's taverns, there's an ongoing debate over who's the strongest Knight of Favonius. The leading candidates for the title are the Acting Grand Master Jean, the Cavalry Captain Kaeya, and the former Cavalry Captain-turned-wine-tycoon Diluc. Yet, there's a fourth candidate witnessed by drunks who swear they saw a Knight in red who leveled the Stormbearer Mountains. They're talking about Klee, the youngest Knight of the Knights of Favonius.
Klee's parents are famed adventurers, especially the world-renowned Alice, author of the Teyvat Travel Guide. As such, they can't bring their child Klee everywhere, so they entrusted her to the Knights of Favonius. This is how Klee and her 'big brother' Albedo's fates intertwined.
Even as a young kid, she was inducted as the Spark Knight for her expertise in explosives. Her natural curiosity and impulsiveness cause no end to Jean's headaches. Her innocent experimentation with all kinds of explosives can lead to unexplained forest fires, sheds turning into ash, and unusual fish deaths in Starfell Lake.
Of course, it cannot go on unpunished, so Jean sends Klee into the Solitary Confinement room. As soon as she is out, it's only a matter of days before trouble lands her there again.
Since Alice and her father left for their latest adventure, Klee has treated the Knights as her family. Jean is almost a surrogate mother to her, in fact. The Midsummer event in the game's 1.6 update showed that the Acting Grand Master isn't some uncaring adult to leave a child unsupervised in an unknown location. Klee's voice line about her says she's the best but also a bit scary, which describes most mothers.
Amber the Outrider is like a big sister to her, and they bond over making Baron Bunny even better. Captain Kaeya acts like a doting uncle, sometimes helping her escape trouble and solitary confinement. He also wrote a survival guide for her, which she recites in one of her idle dialogues. As for Albedo, he's an excellent brother to Klee, even if they're unrelated to each other.
Though not a Knight of Favonius, Diluc gets a unique line from Klee, where she notes that he is a weird grumpy grownup who doesn't smile. Diluc doesn't return the favor (he doesn't have a voice line for Klee). However, he gets a special appearance in the Midsummer event as one of the people Alice notes that Klee loves and cares for her.
The 2.8 Midsummer update explains it through Alice's letter to a younger Diluc, where she unofficially adopts him as a son. She also knows that he cares about Klee underneath the grumpy exterior.
Also, she has one friend outside of the Knights (maybe two, probably because of his bad luck that kept him from joining the others in the archipelago). The Traveler doesn't count because they're the Honorary Knight and nominally part of the organization. That friend is Razor, the boy raised by wolves. While he gets annoyed at Klee's destructive tendencies, he still gets her out of the troubles she causes.
Klee has a friend more special than the others because he's her first friend. That's Dodoco, a doll hand-made by Alice. He's the doll fixed to her backpack on a chain connected to a four-leafed clover. From then on, they're inseparable, and Alice promised her that with Dodoco, she'll never be alone and be protected. This caused the knights a great deal of worry, as Klee had to take after her mom, which meant that Dodoco might explode at any time.
Klee's title as the Spark Knight isn't just for show. When her affinity for explosives is directed well, it can prove beneficial to the Knights. One of their expeditions proved it, as everything went without a hitch, and no Knight involved was hurt. A horde of invading hilichurls was easily repelled. An unintended consequence forever changed the face of the Stormbearer Mountains since Klee put more charges than she was told.
