Artemis's Lore

Smite God Artemis Armed with a magical bow, Artemis is the unrivaled Goddess of the Hunt!

Daughter of Zeus and Leta, Artemis and her twin brother Apollo are products of Zeus' infidelity to his wife Hera. Insulted, Hera cursed Leta while she was pregnant, forbidding her to give birth on land or sea. Fortunately, she found an island that did not touch the ocean floor, so it was neither land nor sea, and thus bore her children. Artemis was born first, then miraculously aided as midwife in the birthing of her brother.

Artemis spent her childhood in the hills and forests, training with her bow and hunting beasts. As she grew older and more beautiful, she also grew proud and ruthless when slighted or dishonored, especially against those that claimed to be better hunters than she. Adonis boasted this very thing and Artemis sent a wild boar to skewer him. The twin demigods Otos and Ephialtes, who could not be killed except by each other, threatened to kidnap Artemis and force her to marry one of them, but were tricked when Artemis, appearing as a doe, dashed between them. As they thrust with their spears, they impaled each other. Finally, Actaeon, after peeping at Artemis while she bathed, was transformed into a stag and devoured by his own hunting dogs. Such is the wrath of Artemis.

Her name is invoked by hunters seeking prey and by midwives during childbirth. Sacrifices are made in her name before a new military campaign. Adolescent girls are sent to her shrine to serve for one year. Beautiful, deadly, and chaste, Artemis is a focused woman and a fearsome warrior.

Passive is RNG and practically worthless, 1 is useless except in combos or against bad players. 2 is a burst skill, which isn't bad, but I just wanted to point that out. 3 is undodgeable and falls off. 4 is an AoE undodgeable stun + nuke.

Goal of rework: Solidify role as hyper carry + add more player interactivity to kit.

Passive: Hunter's Eye: Artemis gains 3% bonus physical power every time she connects with a basic attack, stacking up to five times and lasting indefinitely. All stacks are removed upon missing a basic attack.

No more RNG ********. Now rewards accuracy for up to 15% extra damage.

1: Snare: Artemis plants a trap that turns invisible 1.5 seconds after planting and is revealed by Sentry Wards, which are now in the game to increase counterplay against stealth. Traps root and cripple targets for 1 second, dealing 80/140/200/260/320 damage (+100% of your physical power) and reveal them for 4 seconds. Can have 3 traps at once. Cooldown: 19/16/13/10/7 seconds.

No longer useless, as they turn invisible. However, the root length is much shorter, making it weaker for wombo combos but more useful as actual traps. At the same time, the cooldown has been way shortened.


2: Rapid Shot: Artemis gains 30/40/50/60/70% attack speed for 5 seconds. Hitting with basic attacks reduces the cooldown of this ability by 1 second, halved for nongods. Cooldown: 18/16.5/15/13.5/12 seconds.

Early game, this is an assassin's burst skill. Late game, it's no longer a ****ing CLONE of all the other "gain attack speed for 5 seconds" abilities and becomes more oriented around sustained, reliable damage, making it more of a hyper carry thing.

People misunderstand hyper carries. Artemis is only really good late game because of high damage + hard CC AoE stun ult. That makes her not a damage carry, but a UTILITY carry, unless you're willing to call Rama and Xbal hyper carries as well.


3: Kill Shot: Artemis charges and fires a blessed arrow that pierces enemies hit, dealing 50/85/120/155/190 damage (+75% of your physical power) as physical damage, dealing increasing damage with the enemy's missing health, up to 80/140/200/260/320 damage (+150% of your physical power) at 25% health. This ability has 70 feet of range, with a slight cast time and a slower projectile speed. Cooldown: 7 seconds.

This is absolutely useless for waveclear, but makes for some pretty good poke, especially as the damage gets higher.


4: Calydonian Boar: Art summons a boar that rams targeted enemy after charging for 2 seconds, dealing 100/150/200/250/300 damage (+100% of your physical power), stunning them for 1 second, and reducing their physical protections by 30/40/50/60/70%. The boar will continue to chase and attack targeted enemy, having 50 + 15 per level physical power, 700 + 100 per level health, and 30 + 5 per level protections. The boar can be bodyblocked. Cooldown: 110/100/90/80/70 seconds.

Now a delayed stun that still is effective. It's incredibly powerful in 1v1s, but it had plenty of utility in fights - to chase down enemies, shred tanks and bruisers, etc. Kinda useless for defensive purposes with the 2 second delay but whatever it hits is going to lose so much physical protections, you pretty much won't be able to survive more than a few shots.


Laning: Poke poke poke lay traps poke. Avoid long engagements and just poke. Stay safe with traps.

Teamfights: Stay safe with traps that are actually useful now. Finish off targets with Kill Shot. If a bruiser or tank gets in your face, show them why that's a bad idea. Your entire goal in teamfights is to deal the most insane damage with +15% physical power and 70% attack speed that is spammable, and you can get past stuff like enemy damagers with your stun, enemy tanks with your armor shred, and so on. Your ult has one use but it has many uses.

Despite her recent nerfs making her early wave clear horrendous, Artemis still is quite a viable god in my opinion.
I can still wreck solo lane on my own as soon as I unlock my ultimate.
Basic gist is: Focus on getting her 3 to its strongest, even skipping a point for Tusky, and then allocate one point for it and her 1, and then focus on her 2 after doing so.
Wards are extremely important to run away from an oncoming ambush, even more so as you have no escapes.
I recommend getting at least one movement active like Greater Sprint or even Combat Blink, and a Greater Aegis to deal with that pesky Anubis or Loki. The ability to use it while affected by CC is what makes it superior and will allow you to use your ult, and 2 to victory.

Artemis, Is one of my favourite characters in my opinion. Destroying whichever lane she tries. She is a great jungler she can play a lot of roles excellently. Artemis is a character to pick.
