Pro | Cons

PROS:

- A lot combo chains and setup tools
- High Damage for a guardian
- Decent Mobility
- High Self Sustain & Very hard to kill
- Versatility ( I Think you can pull off even mid lane role with her)

CONS:

- Easy to play, kinda bit harder to master.
- All that stance swap processes could be frustrating and hard to pull off (specialy with bad internet)
- Mana Hungry
- Ability Dependent
- Very bad for coming behind in terms of levels.

Combos

Since Artio is a guardian about fast pace cqc interraction. She has many combos to pull off.

Short Combos:

Bear 2 + Bear 1 = Stun&Amp Self Protection + Damage

Bear 3 + Bear 1 = Slow&Damage + Damage (procing passive)

Bear 2 + Druid 1 = Stun&Amp Self Protection + Damage & Healing

Bear 2 + Druid 3 = Stun&Amp Self Protection + 5 Tick Damage & 1s root &self heal

Druid 2 + Druid 3 = Cripple%Debuff on Enemy + 5 Tick Damage & 1s root &self heal


Mid Combos:

Druid 2 + Bear 2 + Druid 3
(cripple&debuff on enemy + stun & Self Proctection Amp + 5 Tick Damage & 1s root &self heal)

Druid 2 + Bear 2 + Bear 1
( cripple&debuff on enemy + stun & Self Proctection Amp + Damage&Protection Shred)

Bear 3 + Druid 2 + Bear 1
( Slow & Damage + Cripple%Debuff on Enemy + Damage&Protection Shred )

Bear 3 + Druid 2 + Druid 1
( Slow & Damage + Cripple%Debuff on Enemy + Damage & Healing)

Bear 3 + Druid 2 + Druid 3
( Slow & Damage + Cripple%Debuff on Enemy + 5 Tick Damage & 1s root &self heal)

Long Combos:

Bear 3 + Druid 2 + Druid 1 + Bear 2 + Bear 1 + Druid 3

Druid 2 + Bear 2 + Bear 1 + Bear 3 + Bear 2 + Druid 3

Druid 3 + Druid 2 + Bear 2 + Bear 1 + Bear 3 + Druid 1

ı Think 2nd example build kinda contradicting with other example.

Artio is mana dependent (heavily) and loves having some damage. So at your 1st build she has and together. 2 heavy mana/mana recover & cdr base items. On the other hand. You're picking with

So in my opinion if you're gonna rush with then would be better for to keep go on for cdr & mp5.

ANd if you're gonna build then starting with is making more sense to me cuz its all about balance when its about mana dependent wombo-combo guardians (Terra, Yemoja, Xing Tian, etc) .

And in damage options section ı saw which is no longer with us (its been almost 5 month ı guess) . You can pick for high power item with movement speed.

And even if its nerfed heavily Artio still good with So After boot rush, before going for , Stone of Binding could be cool for early pressure with a very cheap cost. Specialy if enemy duo lane is more about late game peeling than early rush make sense to me as a bridge item.

In general ı think your builds will work with Artio nothing majorly wrong about'em. Only problematic thing from my perspective was tankyness / mana / power balance picks. And ı already adressed those.

Thx for this lovely guide. And have a nice day.

And ı have a Artio guide too. So ı will love to hear your opinions too. Cya.

Big damage (17) | April 2, 2020 2:44am
I haven't tested but I think having Genji's Guard, Shogun's Kusari, Heartward Amulet, Gauntlet of Thebes and Spirit Robe all together will overcap Magical Protections and give you such a high MP5 that your passive MP5 isn't useful. You should swap Shogun's Kusari or Genji's Guard to Breastplate of Valor and pick between the 2 of those items which is necessary in game situationally.

Edit: also could be good to add Lotus Crown as an alternative at least and remove Shaman's Ring as it was removed 3 patches ago.

Artio's party healing isn't all that great, so I would swap Lotus Crown out for Sovereignty; plus I would get Gauntlet of Thebes after I had my main defense items online (sov and Void Stone or Oni Hunter's Garb.

The start isn't bad, but you really don't need a ward that early and emerald stone should be swapped out for more Healing Potions and some Mana Potions, I would go with 3 of each so you have some extra sustain. Buy your shoes and wards on your first back, then work on your defenses. You can also consider getting Shoes of the Magi if your ADC is able to clear easily and you're poking the enemy duo.

Agreed the only reason for a lvl 1 ward is if you suspect an invade or other pre-game shenabigans.

Or if you're planning to get lane prio and invade the enemy jungle as duo lane
