Hello people! I've decided to update my Nemesis guide just so we have a "good" build out there while we are lacking some good Nemesis guides! I'm finishing my Apollo guide atm, so when I'm done with that I'll update what needs to be updated (check Changelog).

Comments Below are from Season 3 (2016), comments above are about Season 6 (2019)

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.
ThePerfectPrism (51) | November 14, 2016 12:42pm
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...
xZeroStrike (46) | October 22, 2016 3:23am
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.


The code for this is:

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.
ThePerfectPrism (51) | October 22, 2016 4:07am
Yo sick, love it
xZeroStrike (46) | October 22, 2016 4:36am
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.
ThePerfectPrism (51) | October 22, 2016 4:08am
English isn't my first language, and that is the only word I always forget. That and tough/though
IceColdPappsi (13) | October 21, 2016 9:32pm
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.
