Introduction & Summary

Let me start this guide off by saying that I am not a big MOBA player. I spend more time playing Third/First Person Shooters and therefore this guide is built around and tailored to that experience. This therefore means that it will rely on accuracy and skill shooting.

In the end, the goal of this build is to maximize Attack Speed and Movement Speed, and using a heavy offense as a defense. The total cost for this build is 13595 not including potions/abilities. (Speaking of Abilities. I don't use them myself. Not that I'm not saying DON'T use them, just that I do not.) In the end result, with full stacks from the Devourer's Gloves and Heartseeker you will have an AP/ATK/AD of 165. The final resulting Attack Speed will be 1.84 before using Vengeful Assault, and 2.5 after. Your final Movement Speed will be 515 out of combat and 489 in combat.

Item Guide Side note: The Warrior Tabi can be purchased instead of Boots of Celerity but will raise the cost slightly and reduce your final Movement Speed. The trade off however is slightly increased AP/ATK/AD to 195 and an extra 6% Attack Speed.

A Key Note To This Build: It is an extremely speed intensive build, and therefore in some cases, using Suppress The Insolent to slow your target, then running in and snaring them with Transgressors Fate so you can use Vengeful Assault to unload on a standstill target is a possible tactic, especially on melee users.

Items & Skills - Explanation

As mentioned in the Introduction this is a guide based around moving and shooting fast. Therefore the first purchase is the Boots of Celerity. This gives you an already boost to 21% increased Movement Speed. You'll also want an HP Potion to go along with that, unless you're running center lane, then take an MP potion and use the tower for defense if you have HP issues. To support your fast speed, you will also start off with Vengeful Assault as the first skill you level up, then grabbing the other two, and focusing on leveling it to max by level 11.

Expect to be staying in the lane till at least level 5. After that, make a trip back and buy Devourer's Gloves as high as you can to get some Power to match that speed. This will also start your defenses up in the form of Lifesteal. The AP/ATK/AD will also rack up as you get kills once the gloves are maxed out.

Next is Fatalis. It adds more Movement Speed, Attack Speed, and a 25% cooldown reduction to your abilities. This makes it possible to abuse the Vengeful Assault skill, but can be mana intensive. Expect to be using that speed to run back from spawn a lot.

By this point, if you're not lane swapping, expect to be soon. The increased speed, and final rank of Boots of Celerity will help out on this, and allow assassinations quite easily, especially with a run in, snare, attack speed, vanish based tactic. Heartseeker will improve your Movement Speed and Power, and as long as you don't die.

Following next with Qin's Blades will push your Power even higher as will as boost your attack speed, while giving a 35% chance to do extra damage on basic attack. See the relevance of attacking constantly at a speed of 2.5 now? Good.

The final item, Soul Eater, is to add HP, and more Lifesteal above the already attained Lifesteal, as well as increase your Attack Speed just slightly more.

I think it s nice build. With this items she has really nice movement speed so it s not so easy to kill her, but I have one problem.
Maxing her Vengerfull Assault is good but for this players who have really nice skill in aiming.
WIth this items she will have enough attack speed so I think u should max Supress the Insolent first then Vengerful Assault, but it s only an opinion.
By the way I think it s really nice guide.
Goodluck

So I'm not going to say I absolutely hate this guide, because I don't. What people don't understand about fatalis is that it is no good. Unless it is coupled with Deathbringer. I mean to be honest if you are going to go critical with art, you need fatalis and Deathbringer biggest parts about a crit art. I could say remove hearseeker, and add deathbringer for a true damage dealer. You can easily do 600+ damage when it crits, and since you have fatalis quins blades and Soul Eater then your odds of criting are that much higher. That is my tid bit. I am not an expert just trying to give you the maximum output of damage possible. You could even still have heartseeker if you got rid of soul eater. Because honestly when you are doing 2.5 attacks a second do you really need the extra life steal. lol.

I started playing with artemis yesterday, and today i tried this guide. Didn't work so well... I realized one have to deal a great amount of damage with att speed using artemis, and this guide doesn't help. Sorry, but it's well written :)

Did you even READ my guide? Seriously. You missed the part about not only maximizing MOVEMENT SPEED and ATTACK SPEED but completely talked about the wrong boots. I use Boots of Celerity not Midas' Boots for speed, not gold/xp farming. I could probably get a 5 lead jump start if I did use the Midas boots, but late game would suffer because of lack of movement. I actually tried the Midas boots and it was a waste of gold. The exchange of Boots of Celerity for Warrior Tabi was for those who intent to get into a lot of fights/lane gank early on and can sacrifice movement speed for attack damage. As for my math, some of it is off on dimishing returns, but listed stats are checked through through gameplay and are actual used stats, not math based. I took screenshots at various times. As for buying Heartseeker first, yes if I added The Executioner I probably would have bought it first. But I'm after movement and attack speed. Which means I need the 20% cooldown reductions so that I can abuse the Vengeful Assault skill.

Edit - Reminder: This guide was built by a FPS/TPS shooter (Battlefield 3, CS:GO), for a TPS/FPS shooter player.


that would be because you changed your guide up after the comment and still used the inccorect items. Why would you want to attack fast an d move fast when Art is a carry? You want damage and your items are not going to give you that damage to help your team. You are building incorrectly and thus makiing it harder for your team to win. Because you built Art incorrectly, and not even close to being correct, your team now has to carry you and pretty much 4v5 the rest of the game. with your attitude I find it hard that you would even be on a team let alone in ranked games playing well.

I like this guide.

Even though Fatalis is a rather dull item this build/guide is really well put together and while some people may have opinions on the build it is meant from the author's perspective to help newcomers to the game as well as new players to Artemis.

This being said I give this build an 7.5/10. It is constructed in a manner fitting the Introduction as a fast paced and focused audience. TPS/FPS. And it does that really well.

I would have liked to see more information as stated "MOAR Chapters" but it gets the point across and with a simple design makes it rather easy to follow.

Quoted:

Major problem with this is guide is that Fatalis is a garbage item and has been known to be the worst item in game right now. Even Hi-rez Duke has said he knows that it is not very good. The problem with it is that there is no base stats for that item. Attack speed is not very good in the sense of the proper build of picking up Ninja Tabi. Remember each attack speed item that you buy gets hit with diminishing returns so each one is worth less and less making your math in the guide a bit off.

You should have bought Ninja Tabi instead as art is VERY good at farming and Midas boots are not very good at all. The extra gold really doesnt help in the long run as most of the time in 5s games you will be forced to stay in the lane anyhow.

I would get rid of your main build, move up the 2nd build and take out Fatalis from that build. Go with The Executioner in its place. Then , and only if you have the items in actual build order, buy Heartseeker first.

I do however like how you did your text part of the guide. Redo some math and test out the suggestions above for yourself and get those changes in and you can easily have the top Art guide, untill they finally figure out that her early game is just really powerful and knock her down just a TAD bit.
