This is Kitty here bringing you a guide on Artemis, and I am now officially Diamond Artemis! My IGN is KamikazeKitty, send me a message and I'll try and get in a game with you on stream!
This is my first guide and I hope that this can be helpful in some way. I am not the best player in Smite, nor am I on the most. I try to play all the roles and different gods in each role, but I would say I like Artemis as an ADC the most and have most certainly played her more than any other god. Please keep the criticism constructive as we are all human and make mistakes :).
Update for Season 2: This is a work in progress for S2 because it's still new and I haven't played a ton yet. That being said I still feel pretty confident in my build as I've done pretty well most of my games.
Meow to the guide!
Most players don't like to play support, but it's one of the most important roles on the team, so be nice to them. A good support really can be the difference between winning or losing your lane and possibly the game (unless you get those shoulder straps out and your team hops on).
I could explain the best combos (as I had before) to use on enemies and how to time your abilities together, but really that's my play style, it isn't easy to time these things and generally requires you to have good rapport with your support to time you abilities well.
Basically Artemis is an Auto-attack goddess, she does her damage through AA's not abilities, like most hunters. She can be deadly in the right hands and saving her abilities for when they are actually needed is the biggest aspect to playing her well. You can't just rush in throw down the Boar and expect to get a kill. More often then not my kills are actually from hitting them with Suppress The Insolent and AA'ing them to death while the slow keeps them from escaping. Artemis has no true escape and her CC that isn't from her ult is hard to land. Just keep practicing and don't get greedy.
The best advice I have is to play safe until you are comfortable with a god!
I had a rough start with Smite because I played too aggressively, mostly because I played a lot of Call of Duty. Smite can be a fast-paced game, but slow down and play decisively, that is what wins games, not rushing in and getting that one kill. As evidence of this I played a game of Joust where we pushed the other team into their tower, we were ahead by a decent amount, pushing waves into their tower one after another. They never really pushed out of tower except to prevent creeps from getting in, and we managed to take tower and push them to Phoenix. After everyone hit level 20, they still had Phoenix and got a Deicide, and ended up winning the game with a total of 6 kills. We had more gold and more kills, but they played smarter and won. Never underestimate your enemy and never get greedy.
