    With a beast in the doublicorn thing, and Artemois having a beast killer passive, does he take precedence over units like Bartz? I have a Noctis and Chiz for physical DPS, was looking to add a third.

    Ifrit 2* has beast killer passive if you get it so its not neccesary to have artemios. Just get your phys dps to a 2 star ifrit.

    Artimois with the best bow doesn't do enough damage for the Beast Killer to matter. Bartz can do more damage with a good sword even without. If I were you I would use Noctis or Chizuru on Ifrit for Beast Killer.

    Does Artemois ever stand a chance of a 6* upgrade? Or should I just feed him to someone?

    Any unit has a chance of 6*, but there is no way of knowing if he will. I personally would keep him, but then I keep one of every unit any way.

    Who knows, we might get a bow of Ultimate Power Greatness and people will cry that that they got rid of him and lost a chance at his TM. :D

    Or you can take the Equip L Sword TM and Dual Wield TM and slap it on him and use him forcefully.

    His base attack is so low, there are much better attackers.

    The only reason to use Artemios is if Gumi made him a 6* global exclusive, and even then, they would have to give him some crazy good abilities to keep up with the 6* pack.

    I recommend mothballing him indefinitely. But don't throw him away, remember all the people crying about getting rid of their Cerius and Medius?

    The problem isn't Artemios it's bows. They restrict a unit to 1 weapon with no shield and to top it off only giving them stats similar or worse to 1 handed weapons. Bows need an innate doublehand effect to supplement their inability to dual wield or an innate evasion/defense effect to act as "ranged" to supplement their inability to equip a shield.

    If you're looking for a decent 5* with beast killer (but not top notch neither) there's still Fang...

    it's everything said. at this point in the current meta 5* max aren't allowed, except when using an extra tank like Charlotte or WoL (because maybe 95%players will have Cecil) or by using an healer like tilith (if you could protect her from damage) or lenna. Rosa might also be included because of her mp heal. at this point bartz, CoD or even Chiz are the dps to use when you don't have any of the 5* base. even Medius could be of use with romanoff pistol dw - although he's just too meh for me.
    so don't sweat on him and let him go... for the bench since no one knows the future of course

    of course that I'm talking about trials and events... you could beat the entire story with only 5*max units imo though

    Artemios is a psychopath who enjoys killing anything and anyone in his lore.
    So no, off to the guillotine.

    Oh, I was thinking some sort of doublehand for bows and major attack boosts.
