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 more 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 her Skill hits the back of an enemy.


Role 3: Support

This Build focuses on her Buffing/Energy generation/Cryo application capabilities. However, it does not mean that you don't invest in her personal damage, only that it's a lower priority overall.

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.
