Introduction

This build may seem like a meme however it is meant to be paired with an Artemis who has runeforge hammmer making her do 30% more damage.
I find that it is best to be in your autumn stance do to the protection shred it gives
You need to remember your job is to keep your adc alive and peel for them.
Cern has surprisingly good peel, keep the enemies slowed with frostbound alone helps a lot but other than that you have your 2 that roots and your ult is inane for keeping people at bay.

Pros / Cons

Pros
When paired with Artemis she does massive damage
Catch people off guard because who plays cern support
surprisingly good peel
Protection shred with Autumn stance
Insane team fight ult
good escape with your 3

Cons
squishy compared to guardians and warriors
not nearly as effective without an Artemis
cant do much alone

I will say, as a support, the items you chose in general work for the support concept. And you've thought of a couple of things, specifically staying in Autumn (at least to start) to help increase yours and Art's damage due to the protection shred, and thus also getting Frostbound Hammer to ensure always applying the slow for Art's Runeforged Hammer.

I do think this concept is too specific to be of much use to any doing anything but this specific combo, and the other issue is that for Art to get max effect from your build, you have to be stuck to her hip. That basically reminds me of those people who duo queue, where one person goes Aphrodite and only ever sticks to their friend and doesn't really help anyone else out. And that's the biggest issue I have with this significantly off-meta concept, though I appreciate the concept itself.

Bran, would you agree that if he really wanted to play cern with his Artemis friend, he's better off just turning duo into a kill lane?

Branmuffin17 (365) | May 6, 2020 4:25pm
Well, in a way yes, but you're going to have some major lack of tank issues later in the game. This way, he has consistent control + prot reductions in his kit, is able to tank, and with his dash going through enemies, he can reposition himself to body-block.

I mean, mostly you shouldn't build just to support one player, which is sort of what I brought up in my last comment.

You do know that by continuously commenting on these types of builds/guides, you're just giving it more publicity, right?

This is a great idea! If you want to piss off your teammates and make your enemy laugh as they destroy your Titan that is.

It probably works for low levels of play where people don't know what they're doing. This guy doesn't seem like a 100% troll, so let's see if we can give him some guidance.

"This build may seem like a meme"
Yea sorry man, this build is 100% a meme/troll build.

"ult is inane for keeping people at bay."
That's a waste of an ult, if that's all you're using it for.

Also, building Runeforged on Artemis is weird. The way you described this, is your Artemis rushing Runeforged Hammer? Because as a support, you're supposed to rotate ASAP and let your ADC get farm. So you won't be there to apply your CC for Artemis to take advantage of Runeforged Hammer.

Honestly, you're better off just going full damage on your cernunos and turning duo lane into a kill lane. Just have a Guardian Jungle and Warrior Solo, and you might have a chance of winning.

All the negatives aside, I did get a good chuckle out of this.
