Artemis is a hard to master ADC with a great late potential,but pretty useless in the early moments of the match.This build focus on the early sustain to stay in lane,and obviusly on late damage to punish your enemies.
Pros: High attack speed
High movement speed
High late damage
Easily bullied out
Passive Still Target: a great passive for artemis,it grants critical chance since leave the fount.Stacks with succesful basic attacks,giving you 5%critical chance for each hit, with a maximun of 3 stacks.Last 4 seconds
1 Transgressors fate: The artemis defining skill. Place a trap on the ground that roots,cripple and make some damage to the carelles enemie who set his foot on it.This abilitie can be useless, or can be useful. Place it in places like jungle buffs or straight under opponent foot to secure a kill, to scape or to gain an unfavorable battle since you opponent cant do anithing for 2 long seconds(max this last)
2 Vengeful Assault: This is what makes artemis the best boxing ADC. Attack speed and Movement speed incresed that allow you to overcome any other god in SMITE. At max level will grant you a 80% extra attack speed for 5 seconds.Enought to destroy any opponent.
Also use it to scape and get faster to the lane(max this 2)
3 Supress the Insolent: Your main ability.Poke your enemies whit this whenever you can,cancel their back, slow them,clear the waves and get the killing blow whith this truly rain of arrows. One of the greatest poke abilities in early, will became a great fount of long range damage in late(max this first)
4 Calydonian Boar: Top tier ulti, gives you CC inmuniti for 3seconds, stun all gods in range doing a big amount of damage to them and allow you to punish them while they cant even move.Nothing more to explain(max this whenever you can)(in early, this is an awesome defensive ulti,use it defensive until you fell save and powerful.then use it to stun enemies and punish them with you 3,and kill them with basic attacks)
The standard build for artemis includes lifesteal,attack speed and critical.This combination makes artemis a late game beast, but you need to reach late so the early build is made for resist in the lane the maximun time,including the death toll that gives you a lot of sustain,the chalice that means 3 life pot every time you back,the ninja tabi that grants you some mana, and of course the asi, very good item in artemis since provides lifesteal,attack speed and some early penetration.Also the early build includes the deathbringer that fit perfectly with artemis passive.Is in this moment of the game when you can start killing the enemy gods.
The next item you should build is a penetration item.The two choices here are executioner or titans bane.I prefer titans bane here since it gives you more poke damage with your 3, and also more damage whit basic hith. The executioner is better when you stack it, but you overcap attack speed,and your poke ability make less damage.The last item of the build should be an utility item.My personal choices here are qin sais(when facing tanky enemies) or hydras lament(against squishy enemies)
In the end,sell death toll to pick another critical item like wind demon.You can also sell ninja tabi and purchase warrior tabi.
Damage potion is a great option with finished build too.
Start doing some buff whith your partners(grab red in joust,grab purple in arena)
In the first moments you can do much for your team so keep poking with 3Supress the insolent and clearing with basics attacks until you reach deathbringer. In that moment(midgame for you) you can start being aggresive and getting some kills on squishy gods with your 4boar and basic attacks.
In late game is when you be truly aggresive.You will reach this moment when you have bought the last item of your build.In this moment it will be easy for you to kill the enemie gods
Pick red buff whenever you can, and purchase damage potions to erase everyone using your lethal basic attacks
This guide is made for those people who like artemis but dont know what to build.
Also a little splain of the character.Artemis is highly powerful on joust 3vs3 and can be very satisfying when things go well
