Rosaria is one of the new characters in Genshin Impact. She is a four-star cryo character that works well both as DPS and cryo support. Rosaria uses a polearm to deal physical damage and spread the Cryo element to enemies. You can easily add her to any team that needs an elemental enabler and create huge elemental reactions.
Rosaria is a new four-star character that came alongside Childe's banner rerun. She works well as both a Cryo support and Main DPS.
Spear of the Church
Spear of the Church is Rosaria's normal and charged attacks. She strikes her enemies for five consecutive times with her spear and lunges forward with her charged attack. Rosaria also has a plunged attack where she strikes all the enemies along her path and deal enormous AoE damage upon impact.
Ravaging Confession is Rosaria's Elemental Skill. Activating Ravaging Confession will cause her to teleport behind the enemy's back and slash them using her weapon. You also deal Cryo damage to the enemies when using Ravaging Confession. Note that you will not go behind an enemy's back if the enemy has a larger build than you.
Rites of Termination
Rosaria's Elemental Burst is called Rites of Termination. Activating her elemental burst causes her to attack in a circle, dealing Cryo damage. Rosaria then summons an Ice Lance and once it strikes the ground, it will deal Cryo Damage on surrounding enemies. As long as the ice lance is on the ground, the area around her will damage the Cryo element periodically.
Regina Probationum is Rosaria's passive. When Rosaria uses Ravaging Confession and goes behind the enemy, Regina Probationum increases its CRIT rate to 12% every 12 seconds.
Shadow Samaritan is another one of Rosaria's Passives and it increases all party members CRIT Rate by 15%, this scales off of Rosaria's CRIT Rate and lasts for 10 seconds.
Night Walk is a passive that is automatically unlocked when getting Rosaria. Whenever you travel at night, 6 pm to 6 am in-game time, all your party members get a bonus movement speed of 10%. The effect does not stack and is not applicable on Domains and the Abyss.

Best Team Compositions for Rosaria
Freeze Team Composition
If you would like to deal constant Cryo DPS damage, this team composition is for you. The addition of Chongyun in this team increases your Cryo Damage and CRIT Rate and this team composition works well with the Blizzard Strayer artifact set. Use Xingqiu to spread wet and freeze to your enemies. Finish it off with Jean as a utility character and support to increase survivability.
Another team composition you can use is the Melt Team Composition. Using Rosaria as your main DPS, you can add Xiangling, Bennett and Chongyun as your Sub DPS. Bennett works well as a support and utility character as well. The trick to this team composition is to have a C6 Bennett to have constant melt damage. 4 Pieces of Lavawalker works best in this specific team composition.
Free to Play Superconduct Team
If you would like to create a Free-to-play team, you can use Rosaria as your main DPS and add Kaeya and Lisa as your Sub DPS. You can also use Barbara for utility and healing during fights. This team composition works well with a physical damage Rosaria and four pieces of Gladiator's Finale.
Rosaria is a great cryo character that can be built in different ways. You can build her for her physical or cryo damage. Her elemental skill gives you a great boost in CRIT rate and her elemental burst applies constant cryo element on your enemies. Any polearm works well for Rosaria, especially if you are going for the physical damage build. Rosaria works well with Chongyun because of their elemental bursts.
