Artio' threats

Introduction

First of all, English is not my main language so please execuse some of my rookieness :)

Hi.. I'm not a high ranked (diamond & above) or pro player(cuz ı dont trust my current PC build and internet service). I'm a casual and silver to gold ranked player and I'm at 10+ mastery level with Artio. Tho I'm not an advance competitive Smite player at the same time ı watch and follow professional players, analysts and educator streamers. And try to follow current meta since from 5.17 .

I try to cover Artio in forms of every role she can possibly play.

Artio is the only "stance swamp/switch" Guardian of the game. That makes her unique. She aint have a classic apealing ultimate in terms of CC set up.

And she cant knock up, pull, grab, throw, wall. And cant stun you for long a long time like Khumba or Fafnir or Geb.

Then what she is about ? Artio cover all of these disadvantages with her super agressive usefull, impactfull kit.

She has cripple, self heal, team heal (little tho), protection shred (via both passive and 2 abilities), slow, long dash, stun. Maybe she aint have any hard or long process CC. But she has tons of quick process soft CC and for a guardian she can deal damage A LOT !

Lets start this

Abilities of Artio


Her passive is the key reason that peal her as an aggressive guardian. She can deal damage and Cuz of her attacks, target could melted by carry while under the effect of Artio's passive.

Her Druid 1 is her main self sustain/team&self heal ability. You can pull of clutch heals with that.

Her Bear 1 is her main damage and cqc ability also great way to proc your passive.


These two abilities is her main engagement tools and CCs.

With her Druid 2 he can cripple and debuff enemeies. That allows team combos for your team.

Her Bear Form 2 can stun enemy and self buff her protections.

So as you can see these two are Artio's main setup and mid engagement tools.


In Bear form her 3 is her main escape and also main engagement starter tool.

In her Druid form, her 3 has self heal and 1s root if you can land all of your 5 ticks. This is her 2nd main damage option. And since u can leviate with this ability and track targets.. You're immune to knock up effects.

In bear form if you hit with it to enemy it would slow %30. And remember Her dash has a heavy damage option too (at fullest 270 + %50 of your magical power) .. Its no joke.


Her #4 is her shapeshifting gear. And have a very straight forward passive that ı dont need to elaborate more.

Combos For Artio


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

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

Gameplay

As Solo:

Be aggressive on early game but dont start to spew your abilities on your opponent constantly w/o thinking. Cuz You're a mana hungry and ability dependent God. So once your mana out. You're a dead meat.

Artio doesnt like to get behind in terms of level. Artio is one of the best and most versatile gods in the game but her biggest flaw is she cant live with getting behind (1 or 2 level maybe ok but after 3 its soooo hard to cover that gap). Also she is not strong as her Season 5 version. She is still a SPL material but not as use to. Be careful. You cant just early 1 v 4 and call it a day like old days of her :D

She can be one of the best bully/bruiser solo gods in the game but also must be aware that your combos are interruptable and you aint have any type of CC immunity in your kit. Also be careful about late game gods like Osiris and Amaterasu. Speacialy Osiris can interrupt your combo chains via his stun and slow.

You must be flexible for multiple builds cuz Artio is a god that you can make use a lot of different items for her. Only key is stats are cdr,Mp5 and Mana other than that so many items will work for her.

Since you dont have a big ultimate and CC immunity you should avoid 3 v 1 or 4 v 1 situations specialy in late game. You can be a 1 v 3 god in early to mid game maybe but not for late game. Be careful, make sure your team follow up and cover your back.


As Support:

We already know that Artio is an aggressive support so thats why her playstyle would be similar to her solo game play but this time you're also responsible to support and protect your carry and in late game your all team.

This time adjust your combos for setups not for bullying or boxing your enemy. You need to consider your positioning, try to give a open look for your adc and always keep your distance reachable to your adc.

You've 2 type of heals and protection buff. You can perform clutch surviving performances. Use them wisely. I dont think Artio should rotate a lot specialy if you behind on levels. Cuz missing couple of lanes could be vital for her but still due to current meta Support is the 2nd most rotating role after Jungler. So rotate but dont linger around in the jungle. Farm from each lane that you visit. And make your team secure objectives.

As Jungler;

You dont have burst damage as other "real" junglers but you have lot more self sustain and cc chains. So use this for bullying other Junglers specialy in early game. Since you dont have an ultimate your ganks should be situational picks.

Your first 2-3 level clear could be a bit difficult but after then that you will be just fine.

Artio is a jungler type that need asistance. I mean if you can secure mid lane minions and then You try to take your mid laner with you to gank a lane. With this way Artio probably would shine even more cuz of her setup skills. Because she is not a pure executiioner like assassins or mages but she can setup a lot of team fights. So thats why make sure that your team also rotate and communicate with you. This way, Artio can perform her best as a jungler and playmaker. But she is a veeeeery niche pick. Remember that. She is not strong as support and solo right now. So you can imagine that her jungle even weaker. But you can play her at jungler position for sure.

Pros / Cons

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.
- She is declining since from early Season 6.

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)

Not a comment on the guide itself, but you can display abilities in guides by using
Code:
[Icon=Decompose size=50]
to display it as , only detailing it when you hover over it with your mouse. You can, of course, change the size/ability as well.

I'm no Artio main, but I've played an aggressive support in my dat. From what I can tell you've got the right items build for an aggressive support, be it Void Stone, Stone of Binding, or Mystical Mail. Have you built Pythagorem's Piece in games? I can understand why but I would question it's viability on the support. If it works, more power to you!

As for some of the notes on your support builds (at least for my laptop) they don't fit on the screen because they've got so much to say. Im specifically referencing the "Against (mostly) Magical Team Comp (late game)" and "Against (mostly) Physical Team Comp (late game)" Perhaps this could be fixed by making a separate section for that information, because there is quite a bit there.

You've been around my builds and have probably seen how I feel about Gauntlet of Thebes, but it might work on artio pretty will with her self heal that, from what I know of it, is actually pretty darn good.

Overall, it looks pretty good to me from what I know about Artio, and you do acknowledge why that she's an aggressive support, which validates the large amounts of aggressive items you like to build. I might have to play some artio just to see how much damage she does for myself!

P.S. I know you said your English isn't too great, but instead of "Stance swamp", you may be looking for "stance swap" A personal favorite of mine though is "stance dance"

Thanks for this kind and helpfull feedback man. And thanks for correcting my "stance" thing :D

Actually ı build Pytha's Piece but not frequently as it looks tho. Its maybe not a core item but more like a situational one. But when ı build that, ı really enjoyed. Cuz my Druid #3 has self heal and has 5 tick damage and Pytha's lifesteal make this even better. Pytha also gave me health, CDR but biggest part of Pytha is its passive. Its more like Hades or Ares item actually generaly u can saw on'em but ı think it could work on Artio, specialy when you have lifesteal heavily teammates on your team (like Camazotz, Anubis, Cernunnos, Merlin, Hades, etc) . It make your team even more powerful. Also its a bit counter(ish) for enemy's possible anti-heal counter.

But ı wouldnt put that item as a "Core Item" on Artio. Its a personal one.

Builds need work. Mystical mail, damage items etc... should not be in support builds. Lots of questionable starter items as well, and you've listed non-conquest blessings for some reason. Hoping someone else here can lend a hand.

Hadeyan (2) | April 1, 2019 8:16am
As an aggressive support type Artio has lots of setup and damage output so that items could work on a bit more aggressive tank. But if you want more bruiser/tannky tank then you can go for my other alternative reccomendation items.

And about blessings. I didnt put'em only for conquest. But yeah ı should've make it more clear that part. But since ı didnt put any of those "non-conquest" blessings in my starter builds. Thats kinda mean ı dont put'em for conquest.

Thanks for the feedback anyway.

If this isn't just for conquest then your title is misleading. And so are the build name pages: "Support", "Solo", "Jungle".
