Performs up to five consecutive spear 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 opponents along the path and dealing AoE DMG upon impact.
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 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.

Burst Support/Off-Field DPS Build
Ultimately, the difference between a Burst Support and Off-Field DPS comes from the value of their buffs/utility and the amount of investment needed to make that utility worth the party slot. On Rosaria this translates to: at lower investment her damage takes a back seat to her Crit sharing passive and its synergy with Favonius Lance and at higher investments Rosaria's damage becomes relevant due to the presence of good stats. (ie. better balanced Crit value, more ATK)
Burst > Skill
Most of Rosaria's damage will come from her Burst likewise the main value of her Skill comes from her A1 passive which gives Rosaria more Crit rate rather than the damage.
Main stats: ATK or ER/Cryo DMG/Crit
While Rosaria is a "support" most of her support comes through damage so you don't want to over-build her ER, even with Emblem of Severed Fate. Crit rate is still important in Blizzard Strayer sets as the Crit rate from that set does not count towards your A4 passive. At lower investments you want to prioritize Crit Rate and Energy Recharge, slightly overbuilding to guarantee Burst uptime.
5★ weapons are better stat sticks than 4★ weapons and can be seen as the premium options for Rosaria.
The damage increase over The Catch is relevant enough that it can outshine other 5★ weapons (esp in Freeze or comps with fewer ATK buffs). It wants refines to solidify its position but is a good option at high investment Rosaria.
ER Polearms help provide ER for consistency and allow you to go for ATK/EM Sands. The utility of Favonius Lance generally makes it Rosaria's best weapon while The Catch is a good option if you need more damage out of Rosaria's Burst.
Used mostly for it's heavy Crit Rate substat. Excellent in Support builds and good but not outstanding in Damage roles.
An interesting in-between for ER and EM. Good F2P option for Melt
Emblem of Severed Fate offers some ER support for more consistent Burst but also more Burst damage through the 4pc.
Blizzard Strayer is ideal for Freeze Teams as you don't need to be on-field for the Crit rate boost to activate.
The generalist set, mix of flexibility and raw damage. This set is better than Emblem in teams where you don't need a lot of ER
While it provides good damage for Rosaria, her damage potential means that you use this if nobody else in the party carries Noblesse Oblige.
Lavawalker is a niche set, but can provide value if you need Crimson Witch artifacts. Its Rosaria's best set for Melt teams which is why it gets a recommendation
Cryo DPS Build
On release, Rosaria's constellations implied a Physical DPS potential, however her Burst plays an integral role in her utility and damage which is why this is a Cryo DPS build as even when she uses a lot of field time, her Burst plays a significant role.
Burst > Skill = Normal Attack
Rosaria's Burst is the best for her damage. With field-time her Normal Attacks merit some investment but it shouldn't be a priority over her Burst.
Main stats: ATK or ER/Cryo/Crit
While Physical Goblets can work with Crescent Pike, those variations are more for parlor tricks rather than pragmatism.
Homa gives an excellent amount of Crit DMG and even if its passive isn't active it remains the best weapon overall.
Rosaria can utilize these weapons with her additional field time in this build
Has the potential to outshine 5★ weapons with refines
Rosaria uses everything The Catch has to offer. Can overcap the ER with the field time given to Rosaria in this build.
With field time, White Tassel becomes an interesting F2P option due to its Crit substat and passive.
Excellent Battlepass option especially on Rosaria who can donate some crit to other party members
Rosaria's best choice for Freeze comps and probably in general.
Rosaria's best option in Melt comps. Only recommended if you need to farm Crimson Witch pieces.
Rosaria can utilize the 4pc effect but not to a great degree.
