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 in Mondstadt 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 skills, best weapons and artifacts, and more to get the most damage out of her at any time.

Check out our Genshin Impact codes page to grab the latest primogems and mora offerings and while you’re here, we’ve also got our up-to-date Genshin Impact tier list to see how your team is doing, and a Genshin Impact event guide for what’s coming up next!

Let’s spy on what makes Genshin Impact Rosaria the best she can be.

What’s the best Genshin Impact 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 synergize well with melt team comps.

Unfortunately, Rosaria does face some stiff competition when it comes to other cryo units. 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 you shouldn’t overlook her – she is capable of filling many roles, and with our help, you should have no regrets about investing in this icy beauty.

What are the best Genshin Impact Rosaria weapons?

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

Weapon Effect How to obtain
Staff of Homa (five-star) Bonus effect: Crit damage
Skill: Increases HP by 20%. Rosaria receives an attack bonus based on 0.8% of her max HP. When HP drops below 50%, the attack bonus increases by an additional 1% of Rosaria’s max HP

Wavebreaker’s Fin (four-star) Bonus effect: Attack

What are the best Genshin Impact 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.
