How to Build Rosaria
Rosaria excels at support with her Crit Rate buffs and Burst that stays in the field even when she's switched out. Even her constellation upgrades improve on those characteristics.
Ravaging Confession (E) teleports her behind the enemy to strike with a Cryo-infused lance. It only works on small to medium enemies. She won't teleport behind large ones (such as Ruin Guards), but the strike would still connect.
Her first ascension passive increases her Crit Rate when she successfully does a backstab with this skill. A constellation upgrade increases the particles generated by the ability if she does a Critical Hit.
When she does the Rites of Termination (Q), she swings her polearm around and then summons an ice lance. Both attacks will deal Cryo DMG, and the frozen weapon will periodically release blasts of cold air, dealing more instances of elemental damage.
Her fourth ascension passive, Rites of Termination, increases the Crit Rate of nearby allies, except Rosaria herself. The increase is 15% of Rosaria's personal Crit Rate, so this bonus has a maximum of 15%. Her second constellation upgrade increases its duration, and her last gives a Physical DMG RES debuff to enemies hit by the ability.
Rosaria Genshin Impact Builds
With her Crit Rate bonuses, it's better to stack Crit DMG with artifacts. The CRate can be stacked in other ways, such as a 4-set Blizzard Strayer, Cryo Resonance, and even her first passive. A quick calculation:
- +20% (Cryo affected, 4-set Blizzard Strayer)
- +20% (Frozen, 4-set Blizzard Strayer)
- +15% (Cryo Resonance flat increase whether Cryo affected or Frozen)
- +15% (Crit Hit with E, 1st ascension passive effect)
- = 70% Crit Rate
The first three are easy to keep up with a suitable party composition, which helps with the last one. That means you don't have to build more than 30% Crit Rate if you want to take advantage of this.
However, since she doesn't use infusions, her AA would deal Physical damage unless you bring Chongyun. A Superconduct team and/or C6 would be better for an on-field DPS Rosaria. Artifact sets depend on whether you want her on the field or not.
Possible Sets: Blizzard Strayer, Pale Flame (or combination with Bloodstained Chivalry), or any of the mentioned in combination with an ATK+18% set. If a Burst Sub DPS, Noblesse Oblige (even in combination with Blizzard Strayer), or Emblem of Severed Fate.
Main Stats: ATK%, Cryo (sub-DPS) or Phys DMG Bonus (main DPS), Crit DMG/Rate
Substats: Crit DMG/Rate, ATK, Energy Recharge
This build focuses on using her Burst and its effects. To maximize it, you'll want to have as close to a 100% Crit Rate as possible. Damage is no longer your priority, so it is slightly more flexible than the above. This also lets her be in teams without Cryo Resonance.
Possible Sets: Noblesse Oblige
Main Stats: Energy Recharge/ATK%, Cryo DMG Bonus, Crit Rate/DMG
Substats: Crit Rate/DMG, ATK, Energy Recharge
Rosaria doesn't have a signature weapon, but she's most commonly associated with the Dragonspine Spear. Both character and weapon were released at almost the same time. Here are other possible polearms for her to use:
- Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
- Staff of Homa
- Skyward Spine
- Calamity Queller
- Wavebreaker's Fin
- Favonius Lance
- The Catch
- Crescent Pike
- Kitain Cross Spear
- White Tassel
Genshin Impact Rosaria Lore (Backstory)
Rosaria was born in a distant mountain village. A group of bandits attacked and wiped them out, but they took her in as she was a newborn at the time. She grew up among crooks and liars as something like a servant but also a tool.
That part of her life was filled with combat, whether with outsiders or comrades. Other times, she battles the cold or hunger. As you can imagine, that isn't suitable for a child to grow up in.
When she was young (at an undefined age), the Knights of Favonius wiped out her bandit group. She was spared because the knights saw a chance for her to reform. Varka sent her to the Church, but as we see her now, it didn't take.
That's because even at a young age when she arrived in Mond, she had already realized that she could not bear the 'light.' She was a child of the moon, destined to stay in the dark to keep the light shining.
Rosaria never went to hymnals and shirked the usual duties of a sister. The people see her as a lazy, chain-smoking nun. However, the truth is that there's nobody who sees what she does undercover at night.
Her bread and butter are investigations, information gathering, and discreet defeats of would-be troublemakers. Assignments usually last only for a night. By dawn, Mondstadt would be ready for a new day, unaware of the dangers lurking at night.
That's how and why the Church seems to cut the slack on Rosaria. They know what she does in the 'dark' and support her as much as possible in the 'light.' Still, they do want Rosaria to do the minimal duties of a sister, but at this point, they're used to it.
