La Signora, the sassy Genshin Impact boss, was first seen as an NPC during the game’s prologue. Due to her strong personality and gorgeous design, she quickly became a fan-favourite in the community, despite her cruel actions. Many of you longed for her to become a playable character, until a certain event in the archon storyline put a bit of a damper on those hopes.

We have, however, had the pleasure to face off against this fierce lady, as Genshin Impact’s Signora has become a weekly boss with some handy talent level up materials. So, in this guide, we’ll go over who exactly Signora is, tactics for facing off against her as a boss, and whether she’ll ever, by some unknown power, become a playable character. Be warned, spoilers for Archon Quest: Chapter II, Act III lie ahead.

Who is Genshin Impact’s Signora?

La Signora is the eight of the eleven harbingers of the Fatui, alongside Genshin Impact’s Childe and Genshin Impact’s Scaramouche. Her alias is ‘Fair Lady’, alluding to her stunning appearance, but she is far more than a pretty face. La Signora serves under the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya, and, as such, is on a search to steal each of the other six archon’s gnosis by any means necessary.

Before La Signora became a Fatui Harbinger, around 500 years ago, she was a normal woman known as Rosalyne who hailed from Mondstadt and studied in Genshin Impact’s Sumeru. However, her lover died during the cataclysm, and she was consumed with hatred and despair. After this, she used the art of liquid fire to transform into a living flame, taking on the title of the Crimson Witch of Flames.

In the Inazuman Archon quest, La Signora faces off against the Traveler before the throne, agreeing to the condition that the loser is sentenced to die. The Traveler defeats La Signora, and Genshin Impact’s Raiden kills her.

Will Genshin Impact’s La Signora ever be a playable character?

Due to her death before Raiden’s throne, it’s unlikely we’ll be seeing La Signora as a playable character any time soon. However, as a popular and no doubt powerful character that many players longed to have on their teams, there’s always a chance Mihoyo may find a way to bring her back – though this likely won’t be until we get to Snezhnaya at the earliest. We’ll update this guide if we find any fresh information about this fierce lady.

How do I defeat the Genshin Impact La Signora boss?

La Signora became a weekly boss back in update 2.1. You can find her trounce domain in Inazuma City after you complete Archon Quest: Chapter II, Act III. She can be pretty tough to defeat, but with a bit of practice, you’ll be beating her again in no time.

These are the characters we recommend taking when facing off against La Signora.

Having a shield like Zhongli’s is always handy when facing off against a high DPS enemy, but keep in mind that La Signora has some attacks that can’t be blocked by a shield. Therefore it’s a good idea to bring a character with a high heal output, like Qiqi (we found equipping her with Ocean Hued Clam and a Sacrificial Sword both allowed her to outheal most attacks and gave her the opportunity to deal some strong damage in the process).

La Signora has both a cryo and a pyro phase, so bringing two strong DPS, one with pyro and one with cryo, is great for dishing out elemental reactions – which is what makes taking Eula or Ayaka, then Hu Tao so handy.

During her different phases, La Signora either applies sheer cold or blazing heat, which accumulates over time (much like on Dragonspine). Luckily, there are hearts of flame and eyes of frost that spawn in the corners of the room. Standing near these neutralises the sheer cold or blazing heat, while destroying them greatly decreases the effects you’re suffering while also removing the frosted floor or embered earth created by La Signora.

As with other boss battles, when La Signora loses a certain amount of her HP, she encases herself in a shield. Use elemental attacks to destroy the barrier, then get back to bashing.

Aside from that, victory is mostly down to you getting used to her attacks and dodging when necessary. Then, boom! You’ve taken down the mighty eighth Harbinger again!
