Gameplay Tips

If played in a permafreeze setup, Rosaria has the same team comp as Freeze kaeya. Check Kaeya’s ability tips section for teamcomp setup.

Regarding Substats:

Rosaria does not need much Energy Recharge if paired with Kaeya. If paired with another Cryo unit such as Chongyun or Ayaka, she will need ~130-150% Energy Recharge

Compared to Kaeya, Rosaria has even less desire for Crit Rate, as her Ascension 1 Talent includes an extra 12% Crit Rate once skill hits the back of an enemy.

Regarding Weapon Choices:

  • Wavebreaker’s Fin: At [R5], this weapon can perform similar to Staff of Homa.
  • Deathmatch: Rosaria gets a lot of Crit rate from Blizzard Strayer (4) and Cryo Resonance. As a result, this weapon falls off in value as you will tend to overcap above 100% Crit rate. If Rosaria is being used without the Blizzard Strayer (4) set, then this weapon can perform better compared to other options.

Regarding Talent Priority:

  • Normal Attack: If Rosaria is being used with Chongyun to infuse her normal attacks with Cryo, her Normal Attack talent will have higher priority than Skill.

Ability Tips

Be sure to cast skill before burst as Crit Rate granted by the Ascension 1 Talent will be included with Ascension 4 Talent Bonus as well.

Rosaria’s Elemental Skill and Elemental Burst can be Reverse Melted (1.5x) with another Pyro applier for some quick and powerful damage.

Gameplay Tips

This section is tailored around giving Rosaria as much damage as possible. Crit Rate stacking is not as necessary, if 50% Crit Rate is guaranteed at the very least, you will still be giving crit rate buffs of 9.7% with the Ascension 1 Talent Bonus.

Regarding Weapon Choices: This section was calculated with 160% ER requirement, which is why ER substats weapons are valued highly here. With lower ER reqs, those weapons may fall off if compared with weapons with more offensive substats. Rosaria’s [C4] can reduce this ER requirement down to 140% or lower.

  • Vortex Vanquisher: This ranking is assumed without a shield. With a large amount of attack buffs such as Bennett, this weapon can fall off compared to the other options due to overstacking ATK%.
  • Dragon’s Bane / Kitain Cross Spear: These weapons are only used if Rosaria is played in a team comp in which she constantly triggers Reverse Melt.[R5] Dragon’s Bane can outperform “The Catch”, and [R5] Kitain’s Cross Spear is on par with Deathmatch.
  • Wavebreaker’s Fin: At [R5], this weapon can perform similar to Staff of Homa.
  • Lithic Spear: At [R5], this weapon can perform similar to Vortex Vanquisher.
  • Favonius Lance: Although this weapon’s damage is lower for Rosaria, the extra energy generated from the passive can be very valuable in a lot of teams that need a Cryo battery (Eula, Ayaka, etc).

Regarding Artifact Sets:

  • Lavawalker’s Epiphany (4): Only viable on Rosaria if she’s triggering Reverse Melt, pulls ahead of Noblesse Oblige (2) Blizzard Strayer (2) assuming you can trigger Reverse Melt on all of her kits.
  • Noblesse Oblige (4): Offers party-wide ATK boost, you can equip this set on Rosaria if nobody else on the team is equipping it.

Regarding Substats Priority:

Elemental Mastery is only recommended if Rosaria is to be utilized as a Reverse Melt trigger, as shown in the Ability Tips section.

The following is only recommended to those who have not obtained a desirable set for Rosaria, with Crit Rate building as her placeholder set.

If you don’t wish to hyperinvest onto Rosaria, she could still be used as a Crit Rate provider, you can build up to 88% Crit Rate and use skill to cap out 100% Crit Rate, then cast Elemental Burst for the Crit Rate buff. This can be easily achievable if you have an existing Crit Rate substat polearm, otherwise just put on whatever Crit Rate Circlet, Substats and Berserker artifacts you may have to stack Crit Rate.
