Klee’s best artifacts: Crimson Witch of Flames vs. Lavawalker
Bar none, the Crimson Witch of Flames tends to be considered as the best artifact set for Klee in Genshin Impact.
Take note of the set bonuses:
- 2-piece: +15% Pyro damage bonus.
- 4-piece: +40% Overload and Burning damage; +15% Vaporize and Melt damage; 2-piece Pyro damage bonus is increased by 50% of its starting value after using an elemental skill (maximum of three stacks and lasts 10 seconds).
However, do remember that the 4-piece bonus is primarily for those who rely on reaction comps, as well as the Pyro damage bonus from the elemental skill. If you’re having trouble with this, or the Crimson Witch items that you have rolled with terrible stats, then you’ve got another option: 2-piece Crimson Witch and 2-piece Gladiator’s Finale. The latter’s bonus is just there to give you the extra +18% ATK combined with the Crimson Witch’s +15% Pyro damage bonus. It’s more consistent and doesn’t require you to do anything fancy.
The last option is to use the 4-piece Lavawalker set. The 2-piece bonus isn’t what we need (+40% Pyro resistance). Instead, we’re looking at the 4-piece bonus (+35% damage against enemies affected by Pyro). This is fine if you’re going for a reverse Melt comp (i.e., Pyro to debuff and Cryo to proc), or if Klee is soloing/not relying on elemental reactions (i.e., her abilities tend to blast lots of hostiles with Pyro anyway).
- Main stats – ATK% sands and Pyro damage goblet. For the circlet, go with either crit rate or crit damage depending on which stat is needed (i.e., try to get a 1:2 ratio).
- Sub stats – Prioritize crit rate, crit damage, and ATK%.
In any case, let’s discuss Klee’s talents and constellations in the next part of our guide.
