New Content


Neuvillette
Neuvillette is an on-field Hydro DPS unit who benefits from Freeze, since he is highly vulnerable to interruption at C0 during his Charged Attack.

Furina
Furina provides a DMG% buff, Hydro application, and strong off-field damage. It is recommended to run a strong teamwide healer like Jean, Mika, or Charlotte to counteract her teamwide HP drain.

Charlotte
Charlotte is an Energy-hungry teamwide healer with some Cryo application who can be useful in Freeze teams. Rosaria’s multiple Skill uses generate plenty of particles for her to lower her ER requirements. Charlotte is recommended in teams with Furina.

Wriothesley
Wriothesley is an on-field Cryo DPS who benefits from Rosaria’s CRIT Rate buff and particle generation.

Freminet
Freminet is a 4-star Physical or Cryo DPS. Physical DPS Freminet in particular has high ER requirements, which Rosaria can lower with her particle generation.

Ballad of the Fjords
Ballad of the Fjords is a new 4-star Battle Pass Polearm restricted to teams consisting of at least three different Elements. It performs on par with Wavebreaker’s Fin, Deathmatch, and Staff of Homa (above 50% HP) in a Reverse Melt team with Bennett, Kazuha, and Xiangling.

If you want a Battle Pass weapon for Rosaria, Deathmatch may be a better option since it is also used in Freeze and Mono Cryo teams.

Character Overview

Playstyles

Rosaria is seen in different playstyles and team archetypes that are viable in a variety of scenarios.

Reverse Melt

Rosaria is a viable Reverse Melt DPS, either as an off-field or quickswap DPS. She possesses high multipliers on her Burst and Skill, which always trigger Melt if there is a Pyro aura on the enemy due to their lack of internal cooldown (ICD). She can also snapshot buffs onto her Burst.

Freeze

Rosaria’s Freeze teams make full use of her consistent off-field damage, superb particle generation, and CRIT Rate buff. She helps lower another Cryo character’s ER requirements and keep enemies Frozen to create a comfortable and smooth playstyle.

Support

Rosaria’s support capabilities include excellent particle generation, consistent Cryo application, a CRIT Rate buff, Physical RES Shred (at C6), and potentially high personal damage. She is most often used to increase an on-field DPS unit’s CRIT Rate with her A4 Passive, shred enemy Physical RES with her C6, and provide an ATK% buff with 4pc Noblesse Oblige.

Physical

This quick guide will not focus on Rosaria’s Physical DPS playstyle.

While Rosaria has Constellations and Talents that suggest her as a potential Physical DPS, her Physical DPS teams generally perform worse than her Reverse Melt or Freeze teams. Even when Rosaria is built as a Physical DPS, more than 30% of her damage comes from her Burst and Skill (which deal Cryo damage).

If you still want to play Physical Rosaria, go ahead! Play the game as you enjoy it.

Talents

Talent Priority
Burst > Skill

Rosaria’s Normal Attack Talent does not need to be leveled for any of the teams mentioned in this quick guide.

Normal Attack
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 opponents along the way.

Plunging Attack
Plunges from mid-air to strike the ground below, damaging opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.

In her off-field and quickswap playstyles, Rosaria’s Normal Attacks are only used to help proc certain effects like Favonius Lance’s passive or a teammate’s coordinated attack (like Xingqiu’s Burst). Their damage is negligible.

Elemental Skill
Elemental Skill | Ravaging Confession

Rosaria swiftly shifts her position to appear behind her opponent, then stabs and slashes them with her polearm, dealing Cryo DMG.

This ability cannot be used to travel behind opponents of a larger build.

Rosaria’s Skill deals Cryo damage and can place her behind enemies (up to a certain size). It has a 6s cooldown with good Cryo Particle generation, which makes it valuable for contributing to team DPS in quickswap teams and lowering her Cryo teammate’s ER requirements.

Her Ascension 1 Passive grants her 12% CRIT Rate if her Skill lands a crit on an opponent from behind.

Elemental Burst
Elemental Burst | Rites of Termination

Rosaria’s unique take on this prayer ritual: First, she swings her weapon to slash surrounding opponents; then, she summons a frigid Ice Lance that strikes the ground. Both actions deal Cryo DMG.

While active, the Ice Lance periodically releases a blast of cold air, dealing Cryo DMG to surrounding opponents.

Rosaria’s Burst is the most important part of her kit, providing CRIT Rate to her teammates after cast thanks to her Ascension 4 Passive. It deals 2 initial instances of Cryo damage and procs 4 times over its duration (6 times at C2). Her Burst also lacks ICD which means it can trigger Melt on every hit, granted there is sufficient Pyro application in her Reverse Melt team. It can also snapshot buffs.

Ascension 1 Passive
Ascension 1 Passive | Regina Probationum

When Rosaria strikes an opponent from behind using Ravaging Confession, Rosaria’s CRIT Rate increases by 12% for 5s.

Rosaria’s A1 Passive grants her 12% CRIT Rate upon landing a crit hit on an enemy from behind with her Skill. Note that it is impossible for Rosaria to move behind certain larger enemies and almost all bosses.

Ascension 4 Passive
Ascension 4 Passive | Shadow Samaritan

Casting Rites of Termination increases CRIT Rate of all nearby party members (except Rosaria herself) by 15% of Rosaria’s CRIT Rate for 10s.

CRIT Rate Bonus gained this way cannot exceed 15%.

After casting Rosaria’s Burst, the whole party except Rosaria gains 15% of her CRIT Rate for 10s. This Passive stacks with her Ascension 1 Passive, so Rosaria should always use Skill before her Burst. As a result, Rosaria’s CRIT Rate effectively caps at 88% to maximize her A4 Passive.

Constellations

  • Calcs for Constellation DPS Increases (last updated for Version 3.4)
Constellation 1
Constellation 1 | Unholy Revelation

When Rosaria deals a CRIT Hit, her ATK SPD increases by 10% and her Normal Attack DMG increases by 10% for 4s.

Rosaria’s C1 is not a helpful Constellation since Rosaria’s Normal Attacks contribute almost nothing to her damage in Reverse Melt or Freeze.

Constellation 2
Constellation 2 | Land Without Promise

The duration of the Ice Lance created by Rites of Termination is increased by 4s.

Rosaria’s C2 increases her Burst duration by 4s, which gives her 2 additional ticks of damage. One of her most important Constellations.

Constellation 3
Constellation 3 | The Wages of Sin

Increases the Level of Ravaging Confession by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.

Increases her Skill Level by 3.

Constellation 4
Constellation 4 | Painful Grace

Ravaging Confession’s CRIT Hits regenerate 5 Energy for Rosaria.
Can only be triggered once each time Ravaging Confession is cast.

Landing a crit with Rosaria’s Skill gives her 5 Flat Energy, which reduces her ER requirements depending on how many Skill casts she can get in a rotation.

Constellation 5
Constellation 5 | Last Rites

Increases the Level of Rites of Termination by 3.
Maximum upgrade level is 15.

Increases Burst Level by 3. A great Constellation as most of Rosaria’s damage comes from her Burst.

Constellation 6
Constellation 6 | Divine Retribution

Rites of Termination’s attack decreases opponents’ Physical RES by 20% for 10s.

Dealing damage with Rosaria’s Burst reduces enemies’ Physical RES by 20% for 10s, which is only useful in Physical teams.

Reverse Melt Rosaria

Rosaria’s Reverse Melt playstyle is highly viable. It performs consistently well across Spiral Abyss content even with only 4-star teammates.

  • It is recommended to run at least 1 Favonius weapon in Solo Cryo teams. 
  • For best results at higher ER requirements, equip 4pc Emblem of Severed Fate and a weapon with an ER secondary stat and an offensive passive.
  • One Favonius weapon passive proc per rotation lowers Rosaria’s requirements by 15-20% ER.
  • 3 Skills per rotation extends some rotations or is difficult to execute overall.

Artifact Stats


Sands

Goblet

Circlet
EM or ATK%Cryo DMG% BonusCRIT Rate or CRIT DMG

Stat Priority: ER% (until requirement) > CRIT Rate > CRIT DMG > EM > ATK%

Building more CRIT Rate is important to increase Rosaria’s Ascension 4 CRIT Rate buff and to ensure an A1 Passive and C4 proc. EM Sands can be better if used with an ATK% weapon while ATK% Sands can be better if used with an EM weapon. 

We recommend using Genshin Optimizer to compare your actual artifacts.

Artifact Sets

Calcs for artifact set comparisons can be found here (last updated for Version 3.4).


4pc Gilded Dreams
The 2pc and 4pc bonus EM and ATK% make 4pc Gilded Dreams Rosaria’s best set for Reverse Melt at lower ER requirements.

4pc Lavawalker
4pc Lavawalker grants 35% DMG Bonus from the 4pc set bonus, which makes it a very competitive option if you have good pieces.

4pc Emblem of Severed Fate
4pc Emblem of Severed Fate is a great generalist set and may outperform other sets at higher ER requirements.

2pc + 2pc Mixed Sets
2pc Bonuses: EM, ATK%, Cryo DMG%, Burst DMG%

These 2pc bonuses improve Rosaria’s DPS since her Burst Melts scale with all of these stats.

Weapons

Calcs for weapon comparisons can be found here (last updated for Version 4.3).


Staff of the Scarlet Sands
Staff of Scarlet Sands is Reverse Melt Rosaria’s best choice due to its high CRIT Rate, EM, and ATK% stats. 

Staff of Homa
Staff of Homa has a high CRIT DMG substat along with an ATK-boosting passive, which makes it easier to focus on other offensive stats. At low HP, it outclasses all 4-star options.

Staff of Homa continues to be a highly competitive option above most 4-stars even when Rosaria is above 50% HP.

Ballad of the Fjords
Ballad of the Fjords performs on par with Deathmatch at the same refinements. While one would expect it to be higher, Rosaria already gets all the EM she needs for amplifying reactions from three different-element teammates while on 4pc Gilded Dreams. Choose between Ballad or Deathmatch based on your Sands; if EM, use Deathmatch. If ATK%, use Ballad.

Deathmatch
Deathmatch has the highest CRIT Rate for a 4-star Polearm, which helps boost Rosaria’s CRIT Rate share from her A4 Passive.

Choose Deathmatch over Ballad of the Fjords if you also want Rosaria as a CRIT Rate support in other archetypes. 

Wavebreaker’s Fin
Wavebreaker’s Fin is a competitive option that provides Burst DMG%, ATK%, and a high Base ATK. It scales very well with refinements, even beating some 5-star options at R5.

Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
Primordial Jade Winged-Spear performs on-par with R1 Deathmatch. It offers high Base ATK, some CRIT Rate with its secondary stat, and a small ATK% buff with its passive. 

Rosaria never reaches full stacks of its passive in a typical Reverse Melt team.

Dragon’s Bane
Dragon’s Bane’s EM secondary stat and DMG% passive make it an excellent choice for Reverse Melt. Rosaria benefits from the passive as long as there is a Pyro aura on the enemy. 

Missive Windspear
Missive Windspear is a viable event-exclusive weapon that performs on par with “The Catch”. Most other weapons surpass it.

“The Catch”
“The Catch” is the strongest free and permanent option for Rosaria in Reverse Melt. Any of the options above perform better, but it improves at higher ER requirements. 

Teambuilding

Rosaria Reverse Melt
Rosaria — Bennett — Pyro Enabler — Flex
  • Bennett: Bennett is irreplaceable in Rosaria’s Reverse Melt teams.
  • Pyro Enabler: A teammate needs to consistently apply Pyro directly, via Pyro Swirls, or Burning to let Rosaria trigger Melt. 
  • Second Cryo: You can run another Cryo character to reduce Rosaria’s ER requirements. Many Cryo options also offer support or strong personal damage.

Notable Teammates


Bennett
Bennett is key to Rosaria’s Reverse Melt teams. He provides a large Flat ATK buff, healing, and a self-applied Pyro aura at regular intervals within his Burst. His Pyro application also enables an Anemo or Dendro character to apply Pyro. His Elemental Skill can be used to battery a Pyro teammate.

Pyro Enablers


Pyro Options:
Xiangling, Klee, Yanfei, Lyney
These Pyro characters can enable a consistent Pyro aura for Rosaria to trigger Melt. They also deal strong personal damage or provide team buffs.

Anemo Options:
Kazuha, Jean
Anemo characters hold 4pc Viridescent Venerer to increase the team’s damage via its 4pc RES Shred effect.

Kazuha can apply just enough Pyro with his Elemental Burst to enable a consistent Pyro aura on the enemy.

Jean and Bennett’s Bursts apply Anemo and Pyro to the on-field character, enabling the “Sunfire” effect which allows Rosaria to consistently Melt.

Dendro Options:
Nahida
Nahida enables a consistent Pyro aura via Burning thanks to her strong Dendro application. Bennett or another Pyro enabler helps maintain the Burning aura throughout the rotation.

Flex Options


Cryo Options:
Shenhe, Chongyun, Kaeya, Ganyu, Charlotte
Cryo teammates reduce Rosaria’s ER requirements. Many Cryo options also offer support or strong personal damage. 

Anemo Options:
Kazuha, Sucrose, Heizou
Anemo options in the flex slot serve at least one of these purposes:
1. They provide buffs via their Passives, weapons, and 4pc Viridescent Venerer.
2. They refresh the Burning aura with additional Pyro application.

Example Teams

  • N = Normal Attack
  • C = Charged Attack
  • A = Aimed Shot
  • P = Plunging Attack
  • E = Elemental Skill
  • tE = Tap Skill
  • hE = Hold Skill
  • Q = Elemental Burst
  • D = dash (cancel)
  • J = jump (cancel)
  • W = walk (cancel)
  • > = switch character
  • ( ) = these actions are optional; please refer to the notes below

This is not a comprehensive list of teams. The inclusion or exclusion of any given team does not necessarily reflect its power level.

Rosaria — Bennett — Xiangling — Chongyun
Rosaria — Bennett — Xiangling — Chongyun

This Reverse Melt team consists entirely of 4-star characters, making it an accessible high-damage option for Spiral Abyss. There are several possible rotations for this team, but the one detailed below is easy to follow and allows Rosaria and Chongyun to Melt all their Burst hits.

Sample Rotation
Chongyun E > Bennett N1 E N1 Q > Chongyun Q > Rosaria E Q > Xiangling Q E N1 > Bennett E > Xiangling N2 > Bennett E > Xiangling N2

Rosaria — Bennett — Xiangling — Kaeya
Rosaria — Bennett — Xiangling — Kaeya

Another viable 4-star Reverse Melt team. Kaeya can only Melt a third of his Burst hits due to its ICD, but he is good nonetheless. Kaeya’s C2 and C6 also greatly help this team’s performance.

Sample Rotation
Kaeya E > Bennett Q E > Rosaria EQ > Xiangling Q E > Kaeya EQ > Rosaria E > Bennett E > Xiangling N2 > Bennett E > Xiangling N2 > Rosaria E > Bennett E > Xiangling N2

Rosaria — Bennett — Kazuha — Shenhe
Rosaria — Bennett — Kazuha — Shenhe

Kazuha acts as a Pyro enabler and provides strong buffs with his A4 Passive and 4pc Viridescent Venerer Cryo RES Shred. Shenhe cannot use her Burst in this team since it prevents Rosaria’s Burst from triggering Melt consistently.

Sample Rotation
Shenhe tE > Kazuha hEP > Bennett QE > Rosaria EQ > Kazuha Q > Shenhe N2 tE N2 > Rosaria E > Bennett E N2 > Kazuha tEP > Bennett E N2 > Rosaria E

Rosaria — Bennett — Nahida — Chongyun
Rosaria — Bennett — Nahida — Chongyun

This is a variation of Burnmelt that utilizes Chongyun’s C2 cooldown reduction to decrease the team’s rotation time to increase DPS. Bennett refreshes the Burning aura with his Skill.

Sample Rotation
Nahida E Q > Chongyun E > Bennett QE > Rosaria EQ > Bennett N2 E > Chongyun Q > Bennett E N2 > Nahida E > Rosaria E > Bennett E N2

This rotation assumes C2+ Chongyun.

Freeze Rosaria

Rosaria’s Freeze teams are incredibly potent in AoE content against enemies that can be Frozen. They do not fare as well in single-target scenarios, where Reverse Melt or even Mono Cryo teams are stronger.

ER Requirements

No C4With C4
1 Skill195–205%175–185%
2 Skills150–160%125–135%
  • One Favonius weapon passive proc per rotation lowers Rosaria’s ER requirements by 15-20%.
  • If Venti’s Burst absorbs Cryo, then Rosaria’s ER requirements reduce by 20-25%.
  • 3 Skills per rotation prolong some rotations or are simply too difficult to execute.

Use the Energy Recharge Calculator to determine exact requirements for your team and rotation.

Artifact Stats


Sands

Goblet

Circlet
ATK% or ER%Cryo DMG% BonusCRIT DMG or CRIT Rate

Stat Priority: ER% (until requirement) > CRIT DMG > CRIT Rate > ATK%

Prioritize ER% since Rosaria’s Burst is most important. If using 4pc Blizzard Strayer, then do not exceed a total of 45% CRIT Rate. If using another artifact set, prioritize CRIT Rate over CRIT DMG to maximize her A4 Passive CRIT buff.

Artifact Sets


4pc Blizzard Strayer
4pc Blizzard Strayer is the best set in Freeze teams. Run a CRIT DMG Circlet when running this set to avoid overcapping on CRIT Rate.

4pc Noblesse Oblige
4pc Noblesse Oblige is viable as a more supportive set or if you have a scarce supply of Blizzard Strayer pieces.

4pc Emblem of Severed Fate
4pc Emblem of Severed Fate can be used if another teammate already holds 4pc Noblesse Oblige and you lack additional Blizzard Strayer pieces.

Weapons

Calcs for weapon comparisons can be found here (last updated for Version 3.4).


Staff of Homa
Staff of Homa is an incredibly good option for Rosaria in Freeze, thanks to its high CRIT DMG secondary stat and ATK stats.

Wavebreaker’s Fin
Wavebreaker’s Fin is a competitive option that provides Burst DMG%, ATK%, and a high Base ATK. It scales very well with refinements; at R5, it performs on par with Staff of Homa.

Other ATK% Weapons
Calamity Queller, Vortex Vanquisher, Lithic Spear

Polearms which provide high amounts of ATK are viable picks in Freeze teams since Rosaria’s CRIT Rate needs are largely met by 4pc Blizzard Strayer and Cryo Resonance.

Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
Primordial Jade Winged-Spear is a viable option that performs just slightly worse than the ATK% options above. On 4pc Blizzard Strayer, Rosaria can have about 7 CRIT Rate substat rolls before she overcaps.

Favonius Lance
Favonius Lance is a great option to lower team ER requirements, especially in a team with an on-field Cryo DPS unit like Ayaka, Ganyu, and Wriothesley.

Blackcliff Pole
Blackcliff Pole is the only 4-star Polearm with a CRIT DMG secondary stat, which makes it a good choice if you already have it. 

We do not recommend spending Starglitter to purchase Blackcliff weapons.

“The Catch”
“The Catch” is Rosaria’s best free option in Freeze teams. Its ER secondary stat, Burst DMG% and CRIT Rate passive, and decent Base ATK make it a solid pick.

Teambuilding

Rosaria Freeze
Rosaria — Cryo — Hydro — Anemo
  • Cryo: Another Cryo teammate reduces ER requirements and enables Cryo Resonance. Cryo DPS options are preferred, but supportive teammates can also be used if Rosaria’s DPS is your primary focus.
  • Hydro: A reliable Hydro applier is necessary to maintain Freeze uptime. AoE Hydro application is typically preferred.
  • Anemo: An Anemo teammate provides Elemental RES Shred via 4pc Viridescent Venerer. They also provide additional benefits in the form of buffs and grouping.

Notable Teammates


Cryo Options:
Ayaka, Ganyu, Shenhe, Wriothesley, Kaeya, Diona, Layla, Charlotte
Ayaka, Ganyu, and Wriothesley are strong on-field Cryo DPS units. Shenhe is an excellent buffer. Diona, Layla, and Charlotte provide defensive utility; however, this is largely unnecessary since enemies are Frozen and cannot deal damage.

Hydro Options:
Kokomi, Mona, Xingqiu, Yelan, Ayato, Furina, Neuvillette
Kokomi and Mona are typically the strongest Hydro option thanks to their AoE Hydro application and ability to hold TTDS.

Xingqiu and Yelan are strong single-target options.

Furina requires teamwide healing from a unit like Charlotte or Jean to counteract her HP drain.

Anemo Options:
Kazuha, Venti, Heizou, Lynette, Sucrose, Jean, Sayu
Kazuha and Venti are the most recommended Anemo units in Freeze due to their powerful grouping and buffs.

Lynette provides a taunt and small ATK% buff. Heizou and Sucrose provide some grouping and can hold TTDS. 

Jean and Sayu provide healing if necessary.

Example Teams

  • N = Normal Attack
  • C = Charged Attack
  • A = Aimed Shot
  • P = Plunging Attack
  • E = Elemental Skill
  • tE = Tap Skill
  • hE = Hold Skill
  • Q = Elemental Burst
  • D = dash (cancel)
  • J = jump (cancel)
  • W = walk (cancel)
  • > = switch character
  • ( ) = these actions are optional; please refer to the notes below
  • [ ] = repeat these actions the specified number of times

This is not a comprehensive list of teams. The inclusion or exclusion of any given team does not necessarily reflect its power level.

Rosaria — Ganyu — Mona — Venti
Rosaria — Ganyu — Mona — Venti

This Ganyu Freeze team is incredibly potent in AoE content. However, it runs a tight 15s rotation and faces somewhat high ER requirements. Venti’s Burst groups enemies tight enough to enable Ganyu’s pseudo-quadratic scaling.

Sample Rotation
Ganyu E C > Mona E > Venti EQ > Rosaria EQ > Ganyu Q > Mona Q > Venti E N1 > Rosaria E

Rosaria — Ayaka — Kokomi — Kazuha
Rosaria — Ayaka — Kokomi — Kazuha

This is an incredibly potent Ayaka Freeze team. Kokomi provides AoE Hydro application, healing, and can hold TTDS to provide Ayaka with an ATK% buff. Kazuha provides a Cryo DMG% buff via his A4 Passive.

Sample Rotation
(Ayaka D) > Kazuha tEP Q > Rosaria EQ > Kokomi E > Ayaka D (N1) EQ > Rosaria E > Kazuha tEP > Ayaka D 3[N1C] > Rosaria E > Ayaka ED N1C

Ayaka dashes at the beginning of the first rotation to apply Cryo. This is unnecessary in subsequent rotations.

Rosaria — Kaeya — Xingqiu — Heizou
Rosaria — Kaeya — Xingqiu — Heizou

This is a relatively free-to-play friendly team with only 4-star units. Heizou is the on-field driver in this team. Weaving in Normal Attacks to proc Xingqiu’s Burst is crucial to increasing team DPS.

Sample Rotation
Xingqiu ED Q N1 > Rosaria EQ N1 > Heizou N1C Q N1 E N1 > Rosaria E N1 > Kaeya E N1 Q > Heizou N4C N1 > Rosaria E N1 > Heizou E N1 > Kaeya E N1

This rotation weaves in many Normal Attacks to proc Xingqiu’s Burst, which can be canceled by swapping to the next character even without them dealing damage.

Rosaria — Neuvillette — Furina — Jean
Rosaria — Neuvillette — Furina — Jean

This is an atypical Freeze team that focuses on Neuvillette and Furina’s damage instead of a Cryo DPS unit’s damage. Jean provides 4pc Viridescent Venerer Hydro RES Shred and healing to counteract Furina’s teamwide HP drain. Rosaria has high ER requirements here since she is the only Cryo character. The following rotation prioritizes Freeze uptime, but other rotations with an additional Neuvillette Charged Attack are possible.

Mika or Charlotte can also be used instead of Jean to enable Cryo Resonance and even higher Freeze uptime.

Sample Rotation
Neuvillette Q / E > Furina ED Q > Jean EQ > Rosaria EQ > Neuvillette 2[C] / C E C > Jean E > (Rosaria E)

This rotation alternates between Neuvillette’s Skill or Burst at the beginning. He uses 2 Charged Attacks per rotation. Rosaria can use her Skill twice if you need help reaching her ER requirements.

Support Rosaria

Rosaria can be a support for a variety of DPS units. She is most often used to increase an on-field DPS unit’s CRIT Rate with her A4 Passive, shred enemy Physical RES with her C6, and provide an ATK% buff with 4pc Noblesse Oblige.

ER Requirements

Rosaria’s ER requirements heavily depend on her team composition. Use the Energy Recharge Calculator to determine exact requirements for your team and rotation.

Artifact Sets


4pc Noblesse Oblige
4pc Noblesse Oblige is Rosaria’s go-to support set for ATK-scaling DPS units. Its 2pc effect grants her a Burst DMG% buff and the 4pc effect grants her entire team a 20% ATK buff after using her Burst.

4pc Emblem of Severed Fate
4pc Emblem of Severed Fate can be used to meet Rosaria’s ER requirements and increase her personal DPS if another character in the team is holding 4pc Noblesse Oblige.

2pc + 2pc Mixed Sets
2pc Set Bonuses: ER%, ATK%, Burst DMG%, Cryo DMG%

These are transitional sets which can be used while farming for 4pc Noblesse Oblige or 4pc Emblem of Severed Fate.

Weapons

Calcs for weapon comparisons can be found here (last updated for Version 3.4).


Favonius Lance
Favonius Lance is highly recommended to reduce team ER requirements, even at a cost to Rosaria’s personal damage. As a support, her team’s overall damage is most important. Lowering ER requirements means that more investment can be put into offensive stats.

Deathmatch
Deathmatch has the highest CRIT Rate for a 4-star Polearm, which makes it a valuable option for maximizing Rosaria’s CRIT Rate buff.

Primordial Jade Winged-Spear
Primordial Jade Winged-Spear has higher personal damage but lower CRIT Rate than Deathmatch.

Engulfing Lightning
Engulfing Lightning has the highest ER% secondary stat in the game, which helps meet Rosaria’s typically high ER requirements. Its ER% to ATK conversion also helps increase Rosaria’s personal DPS.

Favonius Lance is typically preferred over Engulfing Lightning most of the time.

“The Catch”
“The Catch” is a free option which can be used to meet Rosaria’s ER requirements.

Teambuilding

Rosaria Support
On-Field DPS — Flex — Flex — Rosaria

Rosaria’s support capabilities include excellent particle generation, consistent Cryo application, a CRIT Rate buff, Physical RES Shred (at C6), and potentially high personal damage. She is most often used to provide these buffs to an on-field DPS unit. The other two slots in the team are taken up by other characters who synergize well with the on-field DPS. 

Notable Teammates


Eula
Eula appreciates the Cryo Particles from Rosaria’s Skill, the CRIT Rate buff from her A4 Passive, and the Physical RES Shred from her C6.

Rosaria’s Burst also maintains a fairly consistent Cryo aura, which activates Cryo Resonance.

Razor
Rosaria provides a CRIT Rate buff, off-field Cryo application to enable Superconduct, shreds enemy Physical RES with her C6.

Wanderer
Wanderer enjoys Rosaria’s CRIT Rate buff and Cryo application to enable his A1 Passive. With Favonius Lance equipped, she also helps lower Wanderer’s and Faruzan’s ER requirements.

Hu Tao
Rosaria is a great option in Double Cryo Hu Tao teams where Hu Tao can Melt some of her Charged Attacks. 

Rosaria is typically paired with Kaeya, Layla, or Diona to enable Cryo Resonance and a consistent Cryo aura.
Other On-Field DPS UnitsOther DPS units can benefit from Rosaria’s generalist support utility. The options listed above are just the most common or noteworthy.

Example teams

  • N = Normal Attack
  • C = Charged Attack
  • A = Aimed Shot
  • P = Plunging Attack
  • E = Elemental Skill
  • tE = Tap Skill
  • hE = Hold Skill

This is not a comprehensive list of teams. The inclusion or exclusion of any given team does not necessarily reflect its power level.

Eula — Raiden — Zhongli — Rosaria
Eula — Raiden — Zhongli — Rosaria

This is one of Eula’s top-performing Physical teams. Raiden provides a Burst DMG% buff and helps reduce ER requirements considerably. Zhongli provides a valuable shield and Universal RES Shred via his Skill. This team also permits Rosaria to use her Skill twice per rotation, which helps lower her ER requirements.

Sample Rotation
Raiden E > Zhongli hE > Rosaria E > Eula E > Rosaria Q > Eula Q N4 hE N4 > Rosaria E > Eula N2 > Raiden Q 3[N3C]

Eula — Fischl — Layla — Rosaria
Eula — Fischl — Layla — Rosaria

This is a more accessible Physical Eula team. Layla provides buffing via 4pc Tenacity of the Millelith and the second strongest shield in the game. Fischl provides strong off-field damage and enables Superconduct.

Sample Rotation
Fischl E / Q > Rosaria E > Eula E > Layla Q E > Rosaria Q > Eula Q N4 hE N4 > Rosaria E > Eula N4

Razor — Dendro Traveler — Kuki Shinobu — Rosaria
Razor — Dendro Traveler — Kuki Shinobu — Rosaria

This is an Aggravate Razor team that employs Rosaria to also buff his Physical damage, which still accounts for a considerable amount of Razor’s personal damage.

Sample Rotation
(Razor tE) > (Shinobu Q) > Traveler ED Q > Shinobu E > Rosaria EQ > Razor N1 tEQ tED 3[N4 tED] N2D

Razor starts the rotation with a Tap Skill if he is C4+ to shred enemy DEF. Shinobu can use her Burst if it’s up.
