Artemis GoW Core Set Bonuses

The base set bonus for Artemis is Enemy I/R/C Defense Debuff – 225%.  While the Full Set Bonus is:

  • Ranged Attack – 632%
  • Enemy Troop Defense Debuff – 224%
  • Enemy Troop Health Debuff – 272%

Artemis Core Gems

Gems are dependent on the target’s setup. If you see Kinoichi’s Kunai or high defense debuff resistance items then you should use more attack to overcome this defense debuff trap.  However, if you see all high defense items then defense debuff gems will be needed.

Its usually safest to use as much defense debuff as possible to overcome the typically far superior troop numbers and defense of the enemy trap.  One exception is when hitting a heroless rally leader. In this situation the amount of defense is roughly known and it is clear whether your set has the amount needed to reduce it to zero without gems for defense debuff.  In this case you can stack more attack for a harder hitting rally!

Suggested Gems:

Leap Year (S) 35% Troop Attack Bonus
Domination 35% Troop Attack Bonus
Ranged 25% Ranged Attack
Gem of Power 25% Troop Attack
Volley Gem 17.5% Ranged Attack, 17.5% Enemy Troop Defense Debuff

Artemis Skill Talent Suggestions

Artemis is a ranged missile attack core set used against superior numbers such as traps and other heroless rally leaders.  Therefore, you should maximize three stats: Ranged Attack, Troop Attack, and Defense Debuff.

The Altar Boosts are the best skills in the tree along with the new Hero 65 500% attack talent.

  • Ranged Attack
  • Troop Attack
  • Altar Boosts
  • Defense Debuff
  • Health Debuff
  • 500% Attack
  • Rally Attack

Also, it is important to skill the minimum points down the right side to skill “Base Set Bonus.”  This is worth the added boost of 25% of 225% I/R/C Defense Debuff or 56.25% additional specific troop defense debuff.

You should still have plenty of points left over to reach Rally Attack Bonus and Full Set Bonus.

Artemis Strengths

Currently, Artemis Cores in GoW are strongest missile attack core set in game.  They are superior even to Nike Core Set.  This set is still testing the limits of what can be destroyed.  Currently, 28 billion in full Sola’s Paladin has been burned.  Also, typical permanent gear 900 million troop traps are no trouble for this ranged missile core set.
