About me!

Hello, I am joeybot500 I have been playing casual joust for 2 years give or take a couple months. I have noticed that i usually do pretty good with artemis. She was also the first god i bought and played while i learned the game. This will be a guide on how to maximize damage and rock at any game mode you choose to play! Please excue me if this is not the most refined build in the world.


I am going to be totally honest i am sure there is another guide that can give you more in depth understanding into artemis and how she jungles and works and all her abilities.

Pros / Cons


Awesome end game
Fast basic attacks
Decent Life Steal
Constant Crits

Takes a while to get started
Low poke damage


Early game beast
Cooldown comes in handy
Great Poke
Decent attack speed
Decent sustain

No lifesteal
Falls off mid game


does well all game
nice sustain
great poke damage
lifesteal is great

Not as many crits as other builds

no cooldown reduction
not the best (non buffed) basic attack speed

Crit queen

Does good all game with high attack speed
dominates end game
works well for all game modes
70% crit chance which is CRAZY
good sustain with high attack speed and lifesteal
My personal favorite
High utility and buff with wind demon and poison star
easy first blood with attack speed
can easily overwhelm the enemy
crazy burst!

relies on crits for damage
witchblade or helmet can mess it up


I hope you have enjoyed this build as much as i did making it! If you did please give me a like and it will help motivate me to make other awesome guides!
With this build guide i am confident anyone can demolish at joust clash or even conquest!
vvgl vvgf and happy smiting!

In the "lifesteal ninja" build you have 2 lifesteal items, which seems like a waste of an item slot to me. You do not have any "ticking" abilities, so basically you'll only get one proc of lifesteal/hit. Needless to say, the build barely has any attack speed items so even with Artemis' steroid your lifesteal wouldn't proc fast enough to sustain enough, regardless of it being 2 items. This is especially since Artemis can be burst down pretty much instantly.

The build would prove effective when just farming minions for HP, but once in actual combat it'd most likely fail you.

Perhaps replace one of the lifesteal items with The Executioner or Qin's Sais which fit a god like Artemis much better anyway.

For the "crit-queen" build, you'd probably be better off switching Poisoned Star for Malice. If you want a pretty much guaranteed critical hit, Malice has 5% more chance, more power, and perhaps a much better passive than Poisoned Star.
The slow on Poisoned Star won't do much, as you'll suffer from attacking movement speed debuff, and if you fight an Artemis it's kill or be killed, so they'll most likely not run away either.
The attack speed debuff is also fairly useless, as the enemy can CC you easily that it doesn't matter.

Compared to this, Malice is all about power, allowing for you to burst enemies down faster so they don't get the chance to CC you. Another thing is that this build only has 15 penetration from Asi. Basically your critical hits will hit for allmost nothing against enemies with (high) protection. Considering you have Wind Demon, you can remove Odysseus' Bow as your critical hits will allready give you 20% extra attack speed, Ninja Tabi gives another 18%, and Artemis' steroid can give another 80%.

The full end game build should have Transcendence. I feel like Transcendence is a must-have for Artemis. Not only does it give power, it also gives alot of mana. Artemis has no escape move, she'll thus rely on movement and a combination of abilities to get out of trouble. If you run out of mana when you need to plot an escape, you're gone.

Rage rush build is pretty much the same as above. I'd replace Jotunn's Wrath with The Executioner, and perhaps Ichaival with Qin's Sais.

Thanks for commenting! While i will agree malice is really nice for alot of builds I feel like the utility from poison star is unexchangable i feel like it can be the difference between getting the kill or them using an escape to get away!
xZeroStrike (46) | September 1, 2016 3:59am
True, but if they use an escape move the utility from Poisoned Star is most likely lost anyway, since Artemis doesn't have a leap/dash and the enemy will most likely create enough distance so you can't catch up with them again.

And most gods have jumps which allows them to go "over" walls, aswell.

The 3d build "Lifesteal Ninja" is flawed,though...
Stone Cutting Sword has a passive that will not proc with Artemis because it will do so only with melee basic attacks and not with ranged,rendering it practically useless into your build,as your are left with no penetration.
Someone who wishes to craft a guide even for arena matches needs to pay attention to these crucial details.

Consider The Executioner, Qin's Sais or its equivalent for burst gods (suck as Loki),the Masamune

Other than that, it's a decent itemization options,except that unfortunate Jotunn's Wrath...
There are way much more better options for Artemis but what the Hell it might be viable in Arena...

thanks i have changed it to titans bane it is much more efficient penetration.
