Artemis Core Set: Stats, Recipe, Set Bonus, and Hero Skills


Artemis core set is the highest ranged attack core set in Game of War with incredible debuff.  This set is significantly more powerful than Nike!  Are you prepared to harness the power of Artemis?

Artemis Core Set Stats

The impressive stats of Artemis provides nearly 2,000% more attack than Nike Core Set. Let’s take a look at the stats of Artemis Core Set. The stats show Troop Defense Debuff gems with a maxed out, skilled, level 65 hero, with the addition of 500% troop attack from Hero Level 65 skills.

Artemis versus Nike

How does Artemis Ranged Core Set compare to Nike Infantry Core Set?

  • Specific Troop Attack: +500%
  • Troop Attack: +1,500%
  • Combined Attack: 2,000%
  • Troop Defense Debuff: +700%
  • Troop Attack Debuff: +400%

Artemis Pros for Rally Leaders

The attack and defense debuff of Artemis is significantly greater than Nike.  So, if you were devastating people with Nike then you will see a significant increase with Artemis.  Also, this core set has higher troop attack debuff than Nike, about 400% for a total of 2,550%.  This attack debuff will greatly improve the survivability of your rally and thus keep your hemlock inventory intact!

Also, because of the increased defense debuff over Nike you can use more attack gems at your own risk.  Personally, I use the highest defense debuff available because of the Kinoichi’s Kunai threat. However, if you are rallying a heroless target then the added defense debuff of this set will free up some gem slots for attack with minimal risk.

Artemis Cons for Trap Players

Basically, everything I just stated as Pros for Rally Leaders is a Con for trap players.  I wish I had some good news for you guys… The silver lining in this scenario is you get to test your impenetrable traps limits against an even tougher adversary.

If Hero 65, be sure to skill Base Set Bonus, Rally Attack Bonus and 65 Troop Attack 500% Bonus along with the typical Ranged Missile Attack skills such as that used by a Poseidon preset.

    Beware, I finally got enough legendary Artemis cores and pieces to craft a set today. I meticulously followed the recipe above, triple checking that I was using the correct pieces with each core, and that they were in the same order posted above. The stats I ended up with are less than half what they should be. I’m furious… Wrote to MZ but don’t expect them to be much help. Have they done something to weaken this set?? Anyone else have this issue? I’m so disappointed…

    1. Darkthorne says

      I’ve been assisting a friend who said he didn’t receive the Extra bonus on an Artemis set that he crafted. Did you check for the “Mystery Bonus” before each craft? Also, are you receiving the Set Bonus in preset? The stats given in the preset page do not include Set Bonuses and the set bonus for artemis is huge! You must manually or mentally add the set bonus to the preset stats shown. Check out this article on Preset Stats for more information.

        Thanks. Mystery base set bonus/mystery full set bonuses are activated. They are big, but I still feel like my Artemis set comes up short of the stats I’ve seen posted. How do you check for a mystery bonus before crafting? Also, I’ve never used the ‘reset special bonus’ feature. If I reset the bonus, and I’m not happy with the new bonus, can I continue to reset until the original bonus comes back? Thanks in advance for your help. I appreciate the info!

          You can reset until you run out of gold!

  3. […] infantry core with 7000 attack and 2000 DD, which means it can do some damage if unprepared. Like Artemis, Nike has some attack debuff so just watch your attack and based on troop numbers adjust […]
