~Introduction~

Welcome to my guide for Nemesis, Goddess of Revenge

My name is Prism. I am a Veteran and a Guide Writter on SmiteFire, who loves playing smite, mainly in the jungle, solo and support roles !

This is my tenth smitefire guide, so I hope you enjoy it !

Nevertheless, lets move on to the True Avenger, Nemesis!


~Pros/Cons~

Pros

  • Amazing Late Game
  • Great Heal from Retribution
  • Slow Queen !
  • Amazing Ultimate
  • Can easily turn the tides of a teamfight
  • Dashes
  • Slice and Dice is just broken

Cons
  • Bad Early Game
  • High Cooldowns
  • ONLY Slows
  • Not a lot of health / protections

~Skills~


skills

~Items~


Item 1

Warrior Tabi is just the best boot for Nemesis. While you do want attack speed, Warrior Tabi is better cuz it gives 20 more flat damage than Ninja Tabi, and that directly affects your Slice and Dice, which is a skill you'll use for lowering the enemy's health, slowing them, and, in some cases, being an execution skill. Also helps a lot in early game farm.



Item 2

Ichaival is an item that, if you're close to me, you should know that I hate it. But why do I use it ? Cuz it works. This gives you an amazing attack speed early game, gives you a great flat penetration, and steals Physical Damage, meaking you a treat to Hunters, Assassins and Warriors.


ALTERNATIVE
The Executioner will be your 7th item, meaning you will sell Ichaival for this. Attack speed, a passive that syncs with Stone Cutting Sword and just helps you out s lot.

Item 3

Qin's Sais is a item you get third when you're where you expect to be at this point at the game, being anywhere between 0-2 to 3-3. It boosts your damage and gives you an extra, making it worth it so much. Also attack speed !


ALTERNATIVE
Frostbound Hammer can be bought earlier if you are ahead, like 3-0 or better. It'll make you the true Slow Queen, and will keep them stranded for a longer period of time, allowing you and your team to kill them easier, or even force them to use Purification in some extreme cases.



Item 4

Frostbound Hammer get's bought in 4th, since you already have a lot of attack speed from Ichaival and Qin's Sais, and this makes your enemy's movement speed get lowered by 30%. It's pretty good to stick to them, something you need on Nemesis. Using this together with Max Level Slice and Dice gives the enemy a 80% slow, so you can see how this is just outstanding.



ALTERNATIVE
Qin's Sais is a must for the build, so, if you bough Frostbound Hammer before it, now it's time to buy this beautiful pair of sais.



Item 5

Stone Cutting Sword is an item introduced in Season 3, that steals your enemy's protections, just like your ult, and give them to you, just like your ult. It ties to the idea of Nemesis pretty well this item, which I think should be really well used on her.



ALTERNATIVE
Jotunn's Wrath can be bought instead of Stone Cutting Sword if you want more of a mana and ability based build, rather than a full out auto attack build. It works amazingly on Nemesis, specially the cooldown !



Item 6

Hide of the Urchin is my go-to defense item on Nemesis. It gives mixed protections, health, mana, and you can stack it up to get even more defenses. It's even the 3rd cheapest item of this build, and it's just so freckin' amazing !

~How to Nemesis~

Early game
Levels

Mid game
Levels
Level 10 - Level 15
What to do?
- Farm until the team needs you for teamfights
- Take your chances! Try to 1v1 people !
- Use Wrath to steal objectives or stun enemies !
- Stay safe!


Late game
Levels
Level 16 - Level 20
What to do?
- Farm less, fight more !
- Kill enemies running away from the teamfight

Machups in the jungle role is the key to survival. Understand them, you'll win, underestimate them, you'll loose.

Hey Prism!

This is a really solid guide. covers all the stuff it needs too, brings a little extra and gives a very good idea on how to play Nemesis! i excepted no less from you.

Personally, I like rushing Ichaival as a first item with her. Ichaival improves her clear speeds early and her boxing early. she already has great mobility in the jungle with Swift Vengeance, so imo this is worth it.

Frostbound Hammer is not as core as The Executioner on Nemesis. Nemesis has a ton of sticking potential anyways, building it is a matter of personal taste. you could keep it on core, but The Executioner as a percentage pen item belongs there as well.

Transcendence is something that you shouldn't really get on Nemesis. her waveclear is pretty terrible and it makes Transcendence almost impossible to stack. Jotunn's Wrath is actually amazing on Nemesis because of the fact that her ultimate is so strong in teamfights and ganks.

Spirit Robe is really good on Nemesis, as her major weakness is cc and it gives her cdr.

Regarding your go to build, it's not my cup of tea with Nemesis because i adore cdr on her and im not a huge fan of Frostbound Hammer on her, but precentage pen should be built once you've got the damage to apply it. buying The Executioner after Qin's Sais could be a good solution to that.

Finally, diving the enemy backline after an initation from your tank and you getting your ult off is something you should mention.

Overall, Really solid guide, the build isn't really my cup of tea but it's still good and you managed to deliver the information in a really easy to understand way and in a very good way. 8/10, which is an upvote.

All good & stuff, but Ichaival should be switched later in the game, for something like The Executioner or Stone Cutting Sword, and Frostbound Hammer and Hastened Fatalis should almost never be together. Infact, none of these 2 should be on Nemesis to begin with since you already have 2 slows (2 and ult), and a double-dash to chase/escape enemies. Probably better to grab some crit or other, more benefitial power items there.

I mean I won't try it, not because I don't like you or anything like that, mostly because Frostbound Hammer and Hastened Fatalis on the same build is a waste of space, if you take Hastened Fatalis off, it's literally my build...

Here's what I would do for the "How to Nemesis", in terms of BB-coding. Do note that I'm posting this to help you, and you're not obliged to use. You allready know it's going to have tables in it.

Example


The code for this is:
Code


This looks a bit better, in my opinion, doesn't it? Again, only an example/trying to help. If you allready had plans to edit that or just flat out want to keep it this way, you can simply ignore this.

Quick question: Are you supposed to keep Ichaival or swap it late game? You don't mention swapping it anywhere but Ichaival falls of late game, and your passive pretty much replaces that of Ich.

Perhaps Wind Demon could do for a nice replacement.

Well done. However the "How to Nemesis" part has like, no BB-coding. So maybe try something to spruce it up. Like an image on the side or something.

Also, I'm saying this not to make you feel bad, but to help you, it concerns your English:

"He's" means "He is". Example: "Have you met the new guy? He's really cool".
"His" means "something that he owns or is entitled to him". Example: "Is this yours or dad's watch?" "It's his."

Small word, but a whole different meaning.

Other than that, good guide.

Nemesis= SMITEWAIFU! Guide wise, can't really judge you on it because I don't play her, but you might wanna go more in depth on the other items not mentioned in the final, just in case others pick them up.
