Artemis is one of those gods in Hades that I would’ve wanted to focus on if I was keen on using casting attacks and projectiles more often. Unfortunately, I wasn’t much of a fan of her base skills and Duo boons. At best, I could think of a combination with Dionysus (Splitting Headache) due to multiple stacks of Hangover effects that can further increase your critical hit chance against enemies, or Ares (Hunting Blades) to get heat-seeking Slicing Shots.
Below, you’ll see an example of one of her Duo boons — Lightning Rod (with Zeus) — where enemies will get shocked if they get close to the casting ammo crystals you have on the ground. That does sound a bit gimmicky considering that it means you won’t be picking up your casting ammo anytime soon.
