Introduction

Too badass for you


About the Goddess of Vengeance Nemesis


*NOTE: Still under construction. Build is fine, but the explanation, BBCoding and all that is still not finished*

First you need to know you're playing with a pretty badass warrior assassin. You get to say "ATTACK" and everybody would attack with you.

With this build I was able to achieve pretty badass stuff and I have IX masteries for Nemesis so you should not worry.

*NOTE: Conquest Nemesis added today 8/10/2014!

Pros and Cons

Advantages
immortal spirit
Insane Burst

High Sustain for an Assassin

High Mobility

High Single Target Damage

Drawbacks

Shield is only 2 seconds (you gotta have perfect timing)

Easily focused in team fights.
In Short
She is Nemesis... Your actual nemesis.
expansion

The beginning of the game

Arena
In Arena all you need is to stick with your team, but watching the other, while attacking the camps. 95% of the time your whole team and the enemy team will be attacking the camps leaving the mid minions totally easy to farm. Leave your team from the camps and go to the minions. Farm as many and use your abilities. After completing one row of minions you'll be almost level 5. You could either back off or wait till the enemy come. You'd then use #3 and #1 to run to your base. By that time you'd also have enough money for full Warrior Tabi. Perfect you're the only level 5 and the only with enough money for your first item. Once you buy the item, tell your team to attack and once you arrive use your number two ( Slice and Dice) to rape the enemy. If you could maintain that level advantage, you're guaranteed a win or at least a KDr of 2+.

Tips for maintaining this level advantage:

[*] Until level 6-7 never try to attack on your own.
[*] DO NOT DIE before getting to your level 7-8! Same it's only a boring 5 minutes without a deadly Nemesis but it's worth it.

Joust
*Under Construction*
You can check out the gameplay (YouTube link under "proof").

Conquest
*Look At Jungling*

Conquest/Jungling




1. Go to red on your own and take it (use rage of the gods/HOG 2)

2. Help solo laner take his blue (he should have HOG 1 or 2)

3. Go to solo lane and farm till level 3-5 whichever you prefer, but I stop and go into the jungle at level 3.

4. Take right xp camp

5. Take speed buff

6. Take left xp camp

7. Back since your mana is probably out by now

8-10. Go to mid lane till mid camps are up and take them with mid-laner

11. Push left lane, help them with their blue and go back to solo lane.

^^Go to step 1 and repeat.


You might break these steps if a specific lane is doing horrible or a specific lane is getting ganked all game and the laner can't deal with it.

Rage of the Gods should be upgraded to Fist of the Gods so you could stun enemies and because your support should always have his Wrath of the Gods aka HoG 3

Team Work

*Vague Read "The beginning of the game" instead or skip if you already did. Will be worked on later*

Cool, you need to know that Nemesis is a Mid-late game badass. You never ever attack on your own in the beginning of the game. You can kill camps, kill minions, and try to get coins without dying. Don't worry, it's only for a couple of minutes if you did not die. If you find your team attacking all you need to do is attack with them. Found them backing off? E-Z back off. You only need to wait for a boring couple minutes until you buy your third item, Asi (Continued in Items).

Items

Warrior Tabi



First, you need to have some power, penetration for any kind of enemy defense, and attack speed. I find Warrior Tabi to be the best as a starting item because you could do a pretty good damage and speed with your attacks compared to many other gods/champs. It gives you +30 physical power, +9% attack speed, +18% movement speed, and +15 physical penetration.

Qin's Sais



Second, you would need to damage the enemy even harder which would be the first step to the high damage w/ kills build. You need Qin's Sais. This item give you +30 physical power and +25% attack speed. This item's passive is that it deals damage that is equivalent to a percentage of the enemies full health.

ASI




Third, you need a lifesteal because let's face it, Nemesis is squishy. Asi is my best option because it gives you +15% lifesteal, +30% attack speed, and +15 physical penetration. And a passive that gives you even more lifesteal when you're almost dead.

After buying this item, you can, and should, get the speed buff.

Rage + Deathbringer

+


Fourth, you would need to have some critical hits. That's when you buy Rage and then Deathbringer (fifth item). These two items make our Nemesis a real OP for every single enemy even the tanks! You basically need 2-3 hits to kill an enemy at this point!

Titan's Bane




Your sixth item is your choice. I buy Titan's Bane because that makes it a 1-2 hits for a kill, but at the same time if you have a pretty good physical damage against you, you would rather buy Breastplate of Valor or Shifter's Shield, right? So you choose either go full offense or have a little bit of defense.

Malice



This item should be on your #1 list because if, and only if, the other team doesn't have much physical defense, then you're guaranteed to rape the other team. If you buy this item, then almost all your basic attacks are critical hits.

Nemesis abilities/skills and how to use them:


Swift Vengeance




Your ability #1 is Swift Vengeance. It has a cooldown of 14 seconds. It provides you with a couple of sprints. This is basically a RUN FOR YOUR LIFE or RUN FOR DAT KILL ability. If you see an enemy god/champ running back, you should think why not take a shot. Is he too far? Don't worry! Use your #1 run to him and then use your #2 (if he/she's fast). Most of the time, basic attacks will do.

Slice and Dice




Your ability #2 is Slice and Dice. It has a cooldown of 10 seconds which I find very good and keeps our build free of Jotunn's Wrath. This ability is a kill securing ability or a slowing down (to enemies) ability. If you see multiple enemies with low health running from your team, sure as hell use your #1 and then your #2. Result? You got free kills! Or if you're one kill away from that penta, use your #2 and some basic attacks.

Retribution




Your ability #3 is Retribution. It has a cooldown of 12 seconds. This ability is the one I call a life saver. If you're being hit by Ao Kuang's tornado or "A MIGHTY STORM" walk out of it and press your #3. When you're using #3 and you get hit by other gods/champs the damage heals you instead of damaging you! You could go in and YOLO with your #2 then use #3 and then #1 to RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.

Divine Judgement




You ability #4, aka Ultimate or Ult, is Divine Judgement. It has a cooldown of 90 seconds which does not bother me at all with such a build. You wouldn't really need to use it so it is more like "GO FOR A PENTA" ability in my opinion. You could use it to slow down enemies, add physical damage to yourself, and add speed to yourself.

BUT...

Jotunn's Wrath is an item that well let you spam your Slice and Dice and run (continue with the reading). Hide of the Urchin is one of the best items if and only if your team is killing and not feeding. So if you can pick up kills or assists, get it, if you can'tthen you just go with Bloodforge to attempt to comeback.

PROOF

A Nemesis arena. 23 kills, 15 deaths, and 11 assists. Penta kill included!

(Outstanding player damage)

This guide is amazing! It helped me (an assasin noob) play amazingly with Nemesis. I have only tried the arena guide but I'm sure that the jung;e will be awesome too. My best score was 18 kills, 2 deaths and 17 assists and before this i was at 2 kills and 5 deaths with my worst score being 1 kill and 11 deaths (tragic, I know). But regardless, thank you for this awesome guide and I wish you the best.

If you actually try Brawler's Beat Stick, you will be surprised at how much more damage it does, and that the passive is amazing as well.

This is what I use and lightly modify to make my guides look nicer. Hope this helps, and remember to give props to the guy who made the template (and it isn't necessarily Jordenito) in your guide.

Hope to see you ingame soon (as of now, my computer is being a loser so it may be a while).

I can't help noticing one thing. Your first guide looks a lot like mine did. And just like yours, it got a lot of constructive criticism, and all of it said the same thing, and that was that everything about my guide sucked (which, looking back, it completely did). It frustrated me too, but the best way to avoid that is to take all their suggestions to heart, without complaining that they all say the same thing, and make your guide worthwhile.

I won't review the guide here, but I will give you a huge help when it comes to BBCoding by suggesting you look up Jordenito's Code Blue guide to BBCoding (and if I was on anything but my iPad, I'd go hunt up the link for you). I found the templates in it to be a lifesaver. And bonus, anyone who gives the right person credit is allowed to use them. Which is the reason everyone is so hard on the newbies: in their point of view, there should be no excuse for bad BBCoding, because they gave you free templates if you bothered to look for them. Now I know that they need to be a link built in to the build-a-guide page and all, but since they aren't, take the time and find them. It will eliminate a lot of downvotes.

Also, I would very much like to see how you play conquest. If you could post a video, that would be good; if I could join or spectate a match with you, that would be great.

Thanks for reading my suggestions. I hope I was different enough from Greenevers that we both helped separately.


I'm trying to make it look better, but I didn't find full templates that I could just copy. All I found is how to use BBCoding and I try to :/

And sure add me anytime we could play a game together. IGN: davidodocola

I have been a support too lately.

with all due respect, 23 kills and 15 deaths is nothing to brag about. it just shows how reckless a fighter u are with nemesis. She is my strongest and favorite god i use and my record is 15 kills with 2-3 deaths MAX. I would and will encourage assassin players in my up and coming nemesis guide to NOT be so reckless just to get kills...take it slow and patient and it will always take u farther in leagues and in any competitive or casual play...u will still look good with just 13-15 kills and 0 deaths.


I was not trying to brag about it. I was trying to prove that the guide makes sense. And keep in mind that I was carrying the whole team (check screenshots) so dying 15 killing + taking camps + defending portal is not that bad.

EDIT: AND I never said that is my BEST with Nemesis. I went 19-0 in Arena and 27-7 in Assault. The screenshots show the first game I played after I created this guide.

Hopefully you can realize that her ult is not useless. Sheesh, how do you play Nemesis but think her ult is bad? It will always do more damage by the time you're a level 20 with it maxed. It will most likely do more damage anyway than Slice and Dice. It has the same slow but has everything that it does not. You think Vamana's ult is useless because it has no base damage?

wut is lyfe

And yeah, don't ever expect every single person that votes your guide to comment. You think the top voted guides have 100+ comments from each person?


I didn't mean literally useless, but I mean you would really rely more on Slice and Dice because it has a decent damage (surely less than the ult) AND a cooldown that is way less than the ult. Sure I use her ult to get easy kills. But you have to wait over 1 minute to re-use so I'd pick Slice first cause that would be way more helpful with a cooldown of 10s I believe.
