This guide is a work in progress and hopefully will be a living and breathing document (constantly updated to remain current) dedicated to the most BAE of Assassins in Smite.
Hi, my name is Executioner and I am new to Smite and probably not the most qualified person to be a guide author. I am just a average player like many of you. With that said, the vast majority of my experience with this game has been in Arena and playing as Nemesis. I see a lot of new players picking Nemesis (best looking assassin imo) and building recommended items or glass cannon and simply failing to ever be a factor (outside of feeding) in the game. This guide (hopefully) will assist new players attempting to learn Nemesis and her various Arena play styles. I created this guide because when I was new to Nemesis, I could not find a guide that contained the information I needed. Most of the guides were outdated and contained irrelevant or inaccurate information or focused on game modes not named Arena.
If you are new to Arena or new to Smite you really need to familiarize yourself with the information in these guides. The authors of these guides have gone to great lengths to explain in great detail almost everything one could ever hope to know about Smite.
Pffft, Minions is a Arena guide created by TormentedTurnip and you would do well to study it so that you have a good working knowledge of the game mode before attempting to succeed with Nemesis.
The Tome of Athena is a list of links to some of the greatest guides ever written for Smite, The Tome of Athena was created by KingScuba a forum moderator on the Smite forums. Anyone serious about improving in this game would do well to click that link and study those guides. The guides contained in The Tome of Athena are written by many different authors and KingScuba has went to great effort to give proper credit to the authors of the guides contained there in.
Nemesis is Bae is the short answer, continue reading for the long version.
If you are picking Nemesis for Arena game play because you (for some reason or another) think she is strong or overpowered you are in for a surprise. Nemesis greatest strength in Arena is how mobile and flexible she is.
Nemesis is not an Assassin and Nemesis is not a warrior, she is something in between these and can excel as either. Nemesis lacks hard crowd control and has a very weak early game. Team fighting is the main theme of Arena and Nemesis kit is lackluster for a game mode such as this. This does not mean Nemesis is bad in Arena, she actually performs quite well in Arena if you are able to adapt on the fly and be what your team needs as much as possible. Some games your team will need a squishy assassin but the vast majority of the games your team will need bruiser Nemesis and that is why this guide was created. Late game in Arena Nemesis is an absolute beast if she is built in the bruiser style I am recommending in this guide.
To carry as Nemesis (in Arena), you are forced to build tanky enough to auto attack people to death while usually taking damage from more than one source.
Hopefully you have found this guide helpful in your quest to master my bae Nemesis in Arena, if you have ideas or suggestions on how to improve this build guide then please feel free to leave a comment. My intent is for this guide to be a living breathing guide that constantly evolves to reflect the state of Nemesis and the game itself. I 100% would love your feed back on how to improve this guide. Thank you so much for the read and good luck in Arena, if the enemy team has a Nemesis you will need it !
Zilby Thanks for the tips on picture adjustment and on how to center text and pictures !
TormentedTurnip and Jordenito for creating and maintaining Code Blue: BBCoding for Beginners it has been extremely helpful to me. Maybe at some point I will be able to use some of the more advanced tactics in the guide!

BranMuffin17, ty for suggesting the Muffin CDR build. It is a welcome addition to the guide and should be helpful for me and others learning to live the Bae Life in Arena. Thanks for all of your helpful suggestions.
I also wish to thank all of the Smite forums users who helped me learn how to be effective with Nemesis in Arena, you can find the names of those who helped me and see my progress through out this forum thread. Nemesis - How do you build and Carry with her ?
