So lets discuss my history with Artemis. She was my first god i used and actually liked playing and i was pretty bad not gonna lie but i loved playing as her so i kept with it and over time saw many builds for her and play styles and i mixed them all together to make this one and i don't regret it at all. I currently have a rank X Artemis with 2500+ Worshippers. My best game using this build and play style was a conquest match and I went 87-3-67. it was a good game haha so I am here to share my knowledge with you and hope you can use this to your advantage.
The way i build my Artemis is getting her to be able to take down any enemy in a matter of seconds (besides Guards). Rage, Deathbringer, and Golden Bow all add Crit chance so once you have all these items you will hit a crit with your basic 9/10 times. Dev Gauntlets and Ninja Tabi are self explanatory on to way you should buy them. so with full 75 dev gauntlets and being able to hit 300's - 500's on enemies every second then you will pretty be set up for those penta kills. Once it's late game and you acquire some extra cash then you can buy some actives and potions. P.S. if you are playing against a god such as Ares or Medusa with some annoying CCs then you can buy Purification Beads to counter those. P.S. the reason i get Dev Gauntlets so late because there really is no reason to get them for her early game as she usually can handle herself, but sometimes i do get them earlier depending on who i am facing, it's all personal choice on what order you buy these in but this is my recommended order.
all of Artemis' skills help in grabbing you more kills. Some gods have skills that are either useless or help very little, this is not the case with Artemis. Her skills can be used in pretty any combo you want but first let me tell you what each skill does. Lets start with her passive, Still Target, this gives Artemis a crit buff for every successful hit. 5% crit buff per hit the max stack is 3 and the duration is 45s so pretty much just more crit hits for you and more dead enemies.
Her 1st ability is Transgressors fate which is a trap that holds a enemy god in place for 3s, These can also be used as makeshift wards. These are helpful for guarding objects such as towers and phoenix. 3 can be placed at a time.
Her 2nd ability is Vengeful Assault, this increases Artemis' Attack speed and movement speed significantly. Once you can start dealing a good amount of crit damage this can easily mow through enemy health. This can also be used to chase down those gods with little health or be used as an escape as it makes you run faster.
Her 3rd Ability is Suppress the Insolent, This is very helpful for getting those gods with low health as they try to run as this drops a volley of arrows are a locations of your choosing (within range), this is also helpful for poking and making enemy gods do stupid things as it makes them mad. this also has a slow so if enemy gods are trying to run away this slows them so you or a teammate can take them out. this is probably the ability i use the most.
Her 4th and ultimate ability is my favorite, This ability unleashes Artemis' pet boar, if an enemy god is within range the boar will lunge and stun them. the boars range stays the same as it hits enemies, once it hits an enemy if another enemy is within range it will stun them as well. This makes for easy escape if caught in a tight place as well as a easy deicide. The Boar does decent damage and can kill if the enemies health is low enough.
Combos: Pretty much any combo with these abilities is effective as all can slow and do damage, my personal favorite is catch them with transgressors fate, then activate vengeful assault and use my boar before they get to far away and then unleash my volley and if my level is on par with theirs then it usually kills them for gets pretty close to it.
Artemis is a god that can strike fear into any enemy that you face on the battlefield if built right. Artemis was designed to dish out high attack but not take it back. Artemis is extremely squishy but if you play it safe you can get kills without dying and once you hit late game only the stupid enemies will challenge you. Her Abilities are extremely helpful and will almost come into play with any conflict you encounter.
Extreme single target damage (I've hit a 950 with my basic)
Can handle herself very well (Even in the solo lane)
Can take out enemy objectives like it's nobodies business.
Good minion clear
Can solo Gold Fury/Fire Giant as it gets into late game
Extremely Squishy (Can easily die if you don't pay attention)
No Actual Escape
Can be ganked very easily
Mana hungry early game
As for jungling, I wouldn't suggest it because of how squishy she is and how prone to being ganked she is.
She is a team player, especially late game with her high crit damage. Her Boar makes her a favorite among team mates even early game. So yes she is a very good team player and will do well in team fights.
