Rosaria is a sister of the Church of Favonius in Genshin Impact, whom you may know from your quest with Albedo in Dragonspine. This four-star hero wields a lethal polearm with an elemental skill that allows her to quickly shift behind an enemy before piercing and cutting them for tremendous cryo damage.
Her elemental burst empowers her to deliver a devastating cut, dealing massive cryo damage and summoning a lethal ice lance that continuously deals cryo damage to any surrounding–and exceedingly unfortunate–adversaries. Our Genshin Impact Rosaria gear guide details the optimal equipment for a DPS or support role.

Perform up to five consecutive strikes.
Consumes a certain amount of Stamina to lunge forward, dealing damage to opponents along the way.
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging enemies along the path and dealing AOE DMG upon impact.
If I had to compare Rosaria to an existing character, I’d say she’s a lot like Xiao. But rather than going through, she purposefully appears behind them. Although both of her powers grant her the ability to do Cryo damage, her primary concentration is on physical damage via critical strikes. Her passives raise her critical rate and the critical rate of her party. This has caused many theorycrafters to consider of her as a probable support, focused on supplying critical chance to the genuine damage dealers. Others believe she could be a primary DPS, but we’ll have to wait and see how things shake out!
Ravaging Confession (Elemental Skill)
Rosaria quickly places herself behind her adversary and then pierces and cuts the adversary with her polearm, inflicting Cryo DMG damage. (Rosaria is unable to use this ability to flank larger opponents.)
Rites of Termination (Elemental Burst)
Rosaria begins by swinging her blade and slashing nearby foes; she then conjures a freezing Ice Lance that smashes the ground, dealing Cryo DMG. While the Ice Lance is active, it periodically fires a blast of icy air, delivering Cryo DMG to nearby opponents.
Ascension 1 – Regina Probationum (Passive 1)
When Rosaria strikes Ravaging Confession to attack an opponent from behind, her Crit Rate increases by 12 percent for 5 seconds.
Ascension 4 – Shadow Samaritan (Passive 2)
For 10s, casting Rites of Termination increases the Crit Rate of all nearby party members (excluding Rosaria herself) by 15% of Rosaria’s. The Crit Rate Bonus obtained in this way cannot exceed 15%.
Unlocked Night Walk (Passive 3)
Increases the Movement Speed of your own party members by 10% at night (18:00 – 06:00). This effect is not applicable to Domains, Trounce Domains, or Spiral Abyss. This Passive cannot be combined with other Passives that have the same effect.
Best Rosaria Build
On the weapon front, regardless of the build you choose, you’re probably interested in increasing Rosaria’s critical rate. Though she can only transmit 15 percent of it onto her allies with Shadow Samaritan, you’ll want it handy when you’re playing her.
Skyward Spine is the obvious pick here, enhancing both critical rate and attack speed. If you lack that, Crescent Pike and Deathmatch appear to be viable alternatives.
Skyward Spine (5-Star) – Increases crit rate by 8% while increasing regular attack speed by 12%. Furthermore, normal and charged attack strikes on opponents have a 50% chance of activating a vacuum blade, which does 40% of the attack’s damage in a tiny AOE. This effect can happen only once every two seconds.
Crescent Pike (4-Star) – After picking up an Elemental Orb/Particle, normal and charged attacks deal an additional 20% attack damage for five seconds.
Deathmatch (4-Star) – If there are at least two opponents nearby, attack increases by 16% and defence increases by 16%. If there are fewer than two opponents nearby, the assault is raised by 24%.
Best Rosaria Artifacts
When it comes to Rosaria, you should definitely want to maximise your critical rate, attack percentage, and Cryo damage.
Our first picks for artefacts are Gladiator’s Finale and Berserker. You’ll probably want to do a full set of one or the other, or two sets of each.
Gladiator’s Finale – (2) ATK +18%. (4) If the wielder of this artifact set uses a sword, claymore, or polearm, increases their Normal Attack damage by 35%.
Berseker – (2) Crit Rate +12%. (4) When HP is below 70%, Crit Rate increases by an additional 24%.
