Artemis is an ADC who thrives on and really needs good teammates, teamwork and communication to do well. First we will look at supports who work well with Artemis. Look for a support that can help with clear, help your sustain and has good CC and peel to be able to combo with and help you survive.
As Artemis' Dream Support, Khepri
has a lot of potential to do well with Artemis
can keep Artemis
really safe with his damage reduction, pull, root and ult. His passive shield is also really good at nullifying poke. All his CC also combos extremely well with hers. This makes laning really safe and also makes her kill potential high. His 2 helps her clear and also makes it harder for the enemies to clear, especially if they time it right. When he ults you, you can be as aggressive as you want. You want to get right in their faces and use your steroid to optimize your damage. Often people will try to just run away from you when you are ulted. This may make a Frostbound Hammer
or Hastened Fatalis
build more useful. Overall the idea of a full support guardian is great for Artemis
Another good example is Sylvanus
. He can be a great support for Artemis because of how his plants and heal help with your sustain and he can also help you clear and poke a little with his heal. His and your CC synergize extremely well and you can do extremely long CC chains with him and get a lot more pulls from than you normally would because of your traps and slow. If you hit a trap then you have an easy pull or if you slow the enemy ADC while they are experiencing the movement speed debuff from auto attacking then Sylvanus should have an easy time hitting pull so you should tell him about this and make sure he is ready when you are doing it. After this you too can proceed to use the rest of your CC while attacking and even use ultimates if needed. Still be wary of beads and jumps before you use your ult so you don't waste it.
Some other good supports include Ares
who can be very good for being aggressive and looking for kills. Use your slow to help Ares hit his chains then use the big slow to try and hit your traps. Your ultimates work really well together and you can always try just using one to force beads and having the other available to use afterwards. This is a good time to start with tier 2 of Transcendence
so you can be really aggressive and hopefully secure some kills. You should be confident and careful when choosing this team because you will struggle really hard if you fall behind.
is also a good support; she can use her taunt to help save you or pull enemies into your traps,use her blocks from her 1 to bodyblock for free, help your clear and come in whenever you need her while giving you damage mitigations with her ultimate.
is a nice pick because he can help you clear and keep you quite safe with his shield and his ultimate allows you to easily hit a trap.
helps a lot with clear and his mesmerize is really good because it helps you get away and allows you to easily land a trap. Enemies can jump out of his root so you have to be quick if you want to place a trap on them. His ultimate is also good for getting pressure off of you and allows you to easily hit a trap after.
You can do some amazing things with Sobek
because your slow helps him hit his pull and if you can predict where the enemies will land after you can place a trap there. His ultimate is a long area slow that can help you hit your ultimate and other abilities and help you escape. His knock up also helps keep you safe and all his abilities do some damage so he can help you clear but he will be mana hungry.
There are a few warriors who can work well as supports. Hercules
has a good balance of tankiness and power. His pull and stun set up kills really well and he can also pull the minions together so that you can easily hit them all with your abilities or Golden Bow
, similar to what he might to with a Freya
's heal helps your sustain and gives you a lot of early lane push and he has good CC, especially the stun on his ult, and protection shred.
, Sun Wukong
are some other possible warrior supports.
You will usually want a guardian because you will likely need a support who can soak up damage and bodyblock for you. You can choose some assassins to support such as Fenrir
, Ne Zha
. These are interesting, risky supports to choose. They are similar to how you might play when you are with Ares
. If you succeed in pushing your lane, denying your opponents their farm enough or getting a kill you should be able to snowball off of it and do really well.
can work as a healer support she can completely get rid of your sustain and clear problems and pretty easily set up kills with her kiss into your CC, such as a trap. However you are complete gank bait and will be easily destroyed by an early game jungler who decides to visit your lane. This means you need to be really careful and constantly have good wards. The opposing duo will also have an easy time killing you or Aphrodite
and will likely go for easy early kills.
"Nice work everyone!"
