Want the best Genshin Impact Rosaria build around? A sister of the Church of Favonius, Rosaria is extremely unorthodox for a nun, usually skipping her responsibilities since she finds them boring and instead turning to a life that has, since launch, seen the cast of the game square off against gods, monsters, and false idols.


However, while intimidating, she’s extremely dedicated and competent at investigating threats to Mondstadt and disrupting them. On the battlefield, however, she’s an excellent Sub Cryo DPS unit.

Role Best Weapon Alternative Weapon Best Artifacts Alternative Artifacts

Physical DPS BuildPrimordial Jade Winged-SpearPrototype StarglitterPale Flame (4 Pieces)Pale Flame (2 Pieces) and Bloodstained Chivalry (2 Pieces)

Rosaria is a decent sub DPS with good damage output and great mobility in combat, but if you want to use her in a team with no other Cryo units, you'll need to buff her Energy Recharge stats.

As a great alternative, you can also build a physical DPS setup with more offensive power, which will shine after reaching C6.

Above are two of the best Rosaria builds right now. You can keep reading to find out the hows and whys of these particular Rosaria builds, but if you've used this character before, you'll quickly understand the thought process behind her best weapon and artifact choices.


Cryo Sub DPS

Dragonspine Spear is the best option in this build since the 200% Attack damage bonus against enemies affected by Cryo is just ridiculous.

There's no better option than this one, so it’s really recommended that you do the unlocking quest as soon as possible whenever it's available. However, the Deathmatch is suggested as a decent alternative in case you didn’t get the former yet.

Both the two-piece bonuses of the Noblesse Oblige and Blizzard Strayer sets will help a lot in the context of this setup, but if you feel inclined to use a complete set of one, the four-piece skills are equally useful.

Physical DPS

Both the Primordial Jade Winged-Spear and the Staff of Homa bring boosts on Attack that are really useful, and the Prototype Starglitter is just a good alternative in case you didn’t get any of the other two yet.

With great bonuses to Physical damage, the 2-2 setup of the Pale Flame and Bloodstained Chivalry sets will help a lot in the context of this setup, but the four-piece skills are equally useful if you want to try the complete sets.

How do I get Rosaria in Genshin Impact?

Rosaria is obtainable by spending wishes in the Wanderlust Invocation standard banner. She'll be rate-up in the banners during the second half of patch 3.3 for a few weeks from December 27.


It's a great time to seek out her constellations. Check out the Genshin Impact banner schedule for more information.
