Genshin Impact Rosaria Build Guide - Everything You Need to Know

A sister of the Church of Favonius, Rosaria is extremely unorthodox for a nun, usually skipping her responsibilities since she finds them boring. 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.

How to get Rosaria

+ 4

Rosaria is obtainable by spending wishes in the Wanderlust Invocation standard banner. Good luck obtaining her!

Character Overview, Skills, and Talents

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 will 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 especially after reaching the Sixth Constellation level.

Normal Attack - Spear of the Church

Normal Attack
Performs up to 5 consecutive spear strikes.

Charged Attack
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to enemies along the way.

Plunging Attack
Descends from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AoE damage upon landing.


Elemental Skill - Ravaging Confession

Rosaria appears behind her opponent, then stabs and slashes them, dealing Cryo damage. This ability cannot be used to travel behind larger opponents.

Elemental Burst - Rites of Termination

First, she swings her weapon to slash surrounding opponents; then, she summons a frigid Ice Lance that strikes the ground. Both actions deal Cryo damage. While active, the Ice Lance periodically releases a blast of cold air, dealing Cryo damage to surrounding opponents.

Passive Talents

Regina Probationum
When Rosaria strikes an opponent from behind using Ravaging Confession, Rosaria's Critical Rate increases by 12% for 5 seconds.

Example Builds for Rosaria

Cryo Sub DPS
Weapon - Dragonspine Spear
Dragonspine Spear is the best option in this build since the 200% Attack damage bonus against enemies affected by Cryo is just ridiculous. Literally no best option than this one, so it’s really recommended that you do the unlocking quest as soon as possible.

Artifacts - Noblesse Oblige (2 Pieces) and Blizzard Strayer (2 Pieces)
Both the 2 piece bonuses of these sets will help a lot in the context of this setup, but if you feel inclined to use a complete set of one, the 4 piece skills are equally useful.

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

Artifacts - Pale Flame (2 Pieces) and Bloodstained Chivalry (2 Pieces)
With great bonuses to Physical damage, the 2-2 setup of these artifacts will help a lot in the context of this setup, but the 4 piece skills are equally useful if you want to try the complete sets.
