Klee Talent Priority

Main DPS Sub DPS/Support
1st Normal Attack Elemental Skill
2nd Elemental Skill Normal Attack
3rd Elemental Burst Elemental Burst

Depending on Klee's Role, you will want to either prioritize her Normal Attacks or Elemental Skill for DMG. Her Elemental Burst deals the least DMG in her kit, so it should be saved for last, especially if she's a support unit.

Klee Vaporize Teams

Main DPS Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Genshin - Klee Klee Genshin - Xingqiu Xingqiu Genshin - Kazuha Kazuha Genshin - Zhongli Zhongli
Genshin - Klee Klee Genshin - Xingqiu Xingqiu Genshin - Kazuha Kazuha Genshin - Bennett Bennett

A standard Vaporize Team for Klee. Kazuha is recommended as he can also collect Klee's mini bombs into one place, on top of his humungous buffs. Do note that Pyro application in this team is quite fast, and may outpace Xingqiu at times.

You can replace your Sub-DPS or Supports with Yelan, Mona, Venti, or Sucrose, but do note that reactions with them would be less consistent as the recommended characters.

Best Team Comps

Klee Mono-Pyro Team

Main DPS Sub-DPS Sub-DPS Support
Genshin - Klee Klee Genshin - Xiangling Xiangling Genshin - Kazuha Kazuha Genshin - Bennett Bennett

As Klee can have issues with making Elemental Reactions consistent for herself, you can opt to using her raw power with other Pyro Sub DPS like Xiangling, and Kazuha with Swirl.

This team is recommended for shield breaking or if you're having issues in AoE situations.

Should You Pull for Klee?

Klee is Not Favored by Meta

As a Catalyst user, Klee focuses on dealing constant Pyro DMG through her Elemental Skill and Burst. Her Charged Attacks also deal a decent amount of DMG.

That being said, her clunky moveset and slow attack speed makes her underwhelming compared to other Pyro DPS characters like Hu Tao or Yoimiya.

Klee's In-Game Information

Character Thoughts on Klee

Character In-Game Thoughts
Genshin Impact - Albedo ImageAlbedo Indeed, I view Klee as my younger sister. Whenever she gets herself into some explosive sort of trouble, I can only console myself with the fact that her current destructiveness is nothing compared to that of Miss Alice.
Genshin Impact - Amber ImageAmber Klee? She can be a bit cheeky sometimes, but everyone in the Knights of Favonius likes her. Although... I really ought to keep a closer eye on her if I wanna keep her from getting put in confinement by Jean again.
Genshin Impact - Bennett ImageBennett She's a cute kid... but I have to keep my distance. Whenever she plays with me, her bombs always end up going off... It's not so much me I'm worried about, it would just be awful if something happened to Klee. The Knights of Favonius would never forgive me, that's for sure.
Genshin Impact - Diona ImageDiona Every time Klee wants to play with me, I take her somewhere far from the tavern. Alcohol and explosives... yeah, that's a dangerous combination! I mean, do I want to destroy the wine industry of Mondstadt? Yes, but not in that sense!
Genshin Impact - Jean ImageJean Though it may be said that it is in a child's nature to play, the things Klee plays with are far from toys. I can never take my eye off her.
Genshin Impact - Kaeya ImageKaeya Klee. Seems she has failed to elude the Acting Grand Master's investigative skills, despite the pointers I gave her... Haha, I'm kidding, no need to go reporting me or anything.
Genshin Impact - Lisa ImageLisa Last time little Klee wanted to use my workshop for her experiments, I had to say no, and she was angry at me for the rest of the day. 'sigh' What happened the next day, you ask? She went off happily to play outside of course.
Genshin Impact - Mona ImageMona Ah yes, Alice's daughter. She's in the custody of the Knights of Favonius, and Albedo looks after her too. She's blessed to have Trifolium as her constellation, which represents good luck. I'm slightly envious... 'smirk' Although, if I'd been blessed with good luck, I suppose I never would have had the great honor of running into that old woman, would I...
Genshin Impact - Noelle ImageNoelle I've always been curious as to how she managed to become a fully-fledged knight at such a young age. I actually went to ask her for tips once, but I'd barely started talking to her when she grabbed me by the hand and took me outside the Knights headquarters to play with bombs. I thought it was some kind of training exercise at first, but Jean found us, and we both ended up in solitary confinement...
Genshin Impact - Razor ImageRazor Klee, friend! Friend, but... big hassle.
Genshin Impact - Rosaria ImageRosaria Trouble, and lots of it. Although, it is sort of a cute kind of trouble...
Genshin Impact - Sucrose ImageSucrose Jean has put her in solitary confinement so many times, but every time she's let out it's not long before she's back in trouble. 'Sigh' Something tells me she hasn't done much introspection. I told her I'd make her a bouncing, dancing Jumpy Dumpty that is also safe - but to date there are still a lot of problems with the design.
Genshin Impact - Yoimiya ImageYoimiya Wait, you said there was a kid in Mondstadt who was good at making bombs?... Now, they aren't much different from fireworks. In other words, she might be a genius... Ohh, I'd love to meet her. But isn't it dangerous to let children play with explosives? Don't the people of Mondstadt worry about that?
