Genshin Impact Rosaria build

Always acting from the shadows, Genshin Impact's Rosaria is a frosty and mysterious lady. Let's see if we can decode her with our comprehensive build guide

Genshin Impact’s Rosaria is a sister of the Church of Favonius, and a four-star cryo polearm wielder. Her elemental burst gives her the power to deal a mighty slash, doling out huge cryo damage and summoning a deadly ice lance that deals continuous cryo damage to any nearby – and incredibly unlucky – enemies. Our Genshin Rosaria build guide goes over her skill, best weapons and artifacts, and more.

If you’re looking for another strong character, take a look at our Genshin Impact Hu Tao and Genshin Impact Traveler guides. For those of you that need some extra Primogems, we’ve also got a handy Genshin Impact codes list to help line your in-game wallets.

What’s the best Genshin Rosaria build?

Rosaria is a four-star cryo polearm wielder that applies consistent off-field cryo damage, has a short skill cooldown, and boasts great team flexibility. Her kit offers a very rare crit buff, regenerates a decent amount of particles, and both her skill and burst synergise well with melt team comps.

Unfortunately, Rosaria does face some stiff competition when it comes to other cryo units, often leading to her being overlooked. Her burst is also quite restrictive in its field of impact, as the AoE is fairly small.

Rosaria is an affordable, versatile, and powerful unit and shouldn’t be overlooked – she is capable of filling many roles, and with our help, you should have no regrets about investing in this icy beauty.

What’s the best Genshin Rosaria weapon?

Like many characters, Rosaria’s best weapon depends heavily on how you intend to use her. In a melt team, Staff of Homa is the best option, as it still maintains a second-best slot in freeze teams due to its amazing offensive capabilities. However, it’s a highly contested weapon and may be better used on another character given its five-star status.

Wavebreaker’s Fin at R5 is the best option for freeze, and the second best option for melt. Even when you aren’t using its passive, it still offers a higher attack boost than all other options. Even at lower refinement ranks, it is still your best option if you don’t have a spare Staff of Homa at hand (and, honestly, who does?).

What are the best Genshin Rosaria artifacts?

Generally, a full four-piece set of Blizzard Strayer is the best set for most team comps, with Noblesse Oblige coming close behind. However, if you’re looking for a unique reverse melt build, you can go with Lavawalker instead. The Emblem of Severed Fate artifact set would also work wonders for Rosaria in elemental damage-focused builds.

Blizzard Strayer Two equipped: 15% cryo damage bonus
Four equipped: CRIT rate is increased by 20% when attacking an enemy affected by cryo. If the enemy is frozen, CRIT rate is increased by an additional 20%
