Want to know how to get Klee in Genshin Impact? Some may find her annoying but others think of her as the funniest and most interesting character in the game. If you're not familiar with Klee, she has a similar personality to Paimon, so however you feel about your small assistant is a good indication of how well you'll like—or dislike—this Pyro character.

Klee is undoubtedly one of the game's best fighters, and the good news is, she's got a banner re-run with the Genshin Impact 1.6 update. She's explosive, fast, and if you can get your hands on her, she could be a key member of your party. You'll want to know everything about her attacks, how she fits into a squad, and how to put together the best Genshin Impact Klee build. Luckily, everything you need to know is right here.

How to get Klee in Genshin Impact 

Klee is a limited-time hero from the Sparkling Steps banner, but that event wish is back for a re-run for the first time since November. It went live on June 9 and is expected to run until June 29. So if you want Klee, you've got a couple of weeks to add her to your team. The four-star characters, Barbara, Sucrose, and Fischl are also available during this event.

The last Sparkling Steps banner gave Klee a 0.6 percent chance of being pulled, but this time around, she has a boosted drop rate. Also, don't forget that if you don't get a five-star pull in your first 90 pulls of a banner, the game has a pity mechanic which guarantees one. 

Overview

Genshin Impact Klee overview

Klee attacks with a series of rapid and potent Pyro blasts, making her excellent at crowd control thanks to a heavy reliance on AoE attacks. The Spark Knight can leave explosions in her wake as she leaves the battle, providing a 25 percent attack boost to other Pyro fighters through her Talent, and can even set traps for enemies to wander into. She's one of the most frenetic fighters in the game. But there is some method to the madness.

Best Genshin Impact Klee build: Example set ups

Klee is a DPS hero and there isn't another way to play her. There is, however, some degree of control. Klee can either be a Pyro Ability DPS fighter, who enters the field briefly for explosions then ducks back out to recharge. Or she can be a more persistent, constant DPS fighter who stays in the battle for the long haul with normal and Charged Attacks.

Weapon

  • Skyward Atlas: Increases Elemental damage by 12 percent and has a 50 percent chance to earn Favor Of The Clouds with Normal Attacks. This targets specific enemies with AoE attacks for 15 seconds, dealing 160 percent Attack damage. Favor Of The Clouds can only happen once every 30 seconds.

Artifact

  • Crimson Witch Of Flames: 2-part: 15 percent extra Pyro damage. 4-parts: 40 percent boost to Overload and Melting damage, 15 percent boost to Vaporize and Melt. For 15 seconds after Elemental Burst, the 2-part bonus effect is increased by 50 percent, for a maximum of three times.

Constant DPS Fighter

Weapon

  • Eye Of Perception: Normal Attacks and Charged Attacks have a 50 percent chance to fire Bolt Of Perception, dealing 240 percent of Klee's Attack stat as damage. It can bounce between enemies up to four times and can occur once every 12 seconds.

Artifacts

  • Gladiator's Finale: 2-parts: 18 percent Attack stat boost. 4-parts: Offers boost to Polearm, Sword, or Claymore fighters, but no boost to Klee's weapon.
  • Gambler: 2-parts: Increases Elemental Skill by 20 percent. 4-parts: Defeating an enemy has a 100 percent chance to remove Elemental Skill cooldown. Can only occur once every 15 seconds.

Combining Gladiator's Finale and Gambler is a good option, as Gladiator's Finale's 2-part boost is very useful, but the 4-part boost will not help Klee at all.
