Rosaria Quick TL;DR DPS Build Guide
UPDATED FOR 2.0 😁!
PSA #1: A DPS punishes those who bully your team with cold, divine retribution (just like I want Rosaria to do to me)
PSA #2: Both Rosaria’s abilities scale off ATK, and she’s extremely straightforward to play! Just make sure utilize her built in CRIT% to really bring the pain
IMPORTANT REMINDER: DOES NOT TELEPORT YOU BEHIND LARGE ENEMIES! Just remember that so you’re not trying to teleport behind something like a Shielded Mitachurl or most World Bosses, and then get smacked to death because you can’t!
PSA #3: E as much as you can! There’s a 1s gap between the 5s the CRIT% buff lasts and E’s 6s CD. This essentially guarantees a free permanent 15% CRIT% buff, and E will always backstab most enemies automatically anyways
IMPORTANT TIP: The spear pulses once every 2s, meaning it will pulse a total of 4x within the 8s duration. If you have C2, it will pulse 6x total!
This is based off her immediate CRIT%, meaning the buff will snapshot. For example, all the bonus CRIT% you gain from something like 4-set Blizzard Strayer will be calculated in that total CRIT%, giving 15% her total IMMEDIATE CRIT% to the rest of her party.
THIS PASSIVE IS WHAT MAKES HER SUCH A GREAT BURST DPS OPTION
Talent Leveling Order (for both Cryo/Phys): Normal > Q > E (can go E over Q if you want/have bad ER)
WEAPON #1 (Recommended for Cryo DPS): Staff of Homa
How do I get it D: ? – It’s time to roll boys (gacha)
Staff of Homa is a pretty dominant weapon for most polearm users due to it’s raw ATK buff. Fact it also provides a ton of CRIT DMG fits great for someone like Rosaria who can easily gain sufficient CRIT% from her E + artifact sets like 4-set Blizzard Strayer
If you have Vortex or Jade-Winged, they’re also great alternatives as their raw scaling and weapon skills can also fit Cryo DPS Rosaria well
Blackcliff Pole is a bootleg version of Homa, but mainly a great alternative for easy CRIT DMG scaling. If you have Lithic Spear (and running a freeze comp with Chongyun + Xingqiu), it is also fairly viable
WEAPON #2 (Recommended for Phys DPS): Crescent Pike
How do I get it D: ? – Forge (Prototype x1, Crystal Chunk x50, White Iron Chunk x50)
At R4-5, CP is the best option for Phys DPS Rosaria due to 1) how easy she can proc energy particles for weapon skill, and 2) practically a 100% uptime on weapon skill as explained in PSA #3
Dragonspine Spear is decent, but Blackcliff Pole at max stacks outperforms it — Dragonspine Spear should be used as a last resort or if you don’t have access to these weapons since you get one for free
Staff of Homa, Jade-Winged, and even Vortex are better options if you have them, as their raw scaling + 4-set Glad bonus stacks very well, and can still work for Phys DPS build if your CP is below R4. Dragonspine Spear can be a decent alternative as you are given one for free, but subpar to CP for Phys DMG
ARTIFACT #1 (Recommended for Cryo DPS): Blizzard Strayer
How do I get it D: ? – Blizzard at Peak of Vindagnyer Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)
Pretty self-explanatory set/dominant set for Cryo DPS. If you’re running even a moderately decent freeze comp, you’re getting a free 65% CRIT% just from the set + Rosaria’s A1 passive. Along with her A2 passive + some CRIT% substats, you can easily push for the 80-100% mark
This also works great for her burst/supporting DPS as well, so feel free to keep it on her!
ARTIFACT #2 (Recommended for Phys DPS): Pale Flame
How do I get it D: ? – Ridge Watch Domain (AR 30 locked, 20 Resin per run)
An easy way to think about it is you get 50% Phys DMG bonus from 2x bonus + 4x bonus buff + 18% ATK bonus from 4x bonus. It’s a bit difficult to keep the stacks up since Rosaria’s E is 6s (and the 4x lasts 7s per stack), but still an easier option. Otherwise, run 2x Pale + 2x Bloodstained for max Phys DPS
You could run 4-set BS for the Phys DPS build as well for the guaranteed CRIT procs, but at that point it’s better to invest into a Cryo build for full value
Artifacts to run for early/lower level players: 2-set Brave + 2-set Exile for Q spam OR 2-set Brave + 2-set Sojourner for raw early DMG scaling
PSA #4: There is a burst DPS/support build with 2-set Noblesse + 2-set Blizzard where you focus high CRIT% to abuse the A4 passive. It’s pretty fun, does decent damage, and great if you desperately need a Cryo user/support on your team. Can go 4-set Noblesse if no one on your team is running it already!
|ATK%||Cryo/Phys DMG% (depends which you’re running)||CRIT DMG|
Substats: CRIT DMG > ATK% > ATK > ER (EM if running melt comp)
She gains so much CRIT% already CRIT DMG takes priority for Circlet
If you want other characters let me know. Rosaria’s Team Comp build will be coming out later this weekend! Hope this helped. Bye.
