    Unsure how you wanna build a Artemios? Never fear. I'm here with a build to make full use of Artemios offensive capabilities. Wanna know how it works? Then read the post below silly. As usual, leave comments, and questions here about this build.

    Max 5* Stats: HP: 2190 | MP: 126 | ATK: 101 | DEF: 82 | MAG: 95 | SPR: 88
    Magic Affinity At 5*: Green/White MAG: Level 3, Black MAG: Level 4

    Stats Overview: Artemios has some useful stats, he may be lacking in stat buffs but it's still useful enough for him to chunk down enemies with his attacks which he has a good arsenal of them. Artemios also has huge help from his slayer buffs which is what we will be making full use off. His MAG affinity levels aren't gonna be so important in this build, but I may come to revisit them if we get some more cool stuff to mess around with and maybe it COULD work for Artemios. Anyway, let me show you this build.

    Build 1: I Know All Your Weaknesses (Physical Attacker)
    Weapon: Killer Bow [Future Release]: ATK +60, Dark Element, Bird/Plant/Insect Killer added to attacks (Trial Award: 1-3 Brachiosaur)
    Shield: None
    Hat: Tiger Mask: ATK +14, DEF +3 (Quest: Hero Mask Task)
    Clothing: Black Belt Gi: ATK +8, DEF +24 (Quest: Catastrophi-Kol)
    Accessory 1: Hyper Wrist: ATK +10 (Recipe: Grandport)
    Accessory: Hyper Wrist: ATK +10 (Recipe: Grandport)
    Materia Slot: ATK +10% (Award: Colosseum BGN D-2)
    Materia Slot: Aquan Killer (Trust: Ollie)
    Materia Slot: Dragon Killer (Trust: Shaka)
    Materia Slot: Stone Killer Trust: King Glott)
    Esper: Ifrit
    Best Moves to Use?: Barrage, Cheap Shot, Scattershot

    How to use?: With the devastating build. Artemios is a true force to be reckoned with, as a result. He would the following Slayers after everything is done. Beast, Human, Demon, Bird, Plant, Insect, Aquan, Dragon, and Stone. That's 9 whole slayer effects active at one time on one unit. The only type of enemy he would be missing is Machine due to this Artemios is hitting for weakness on almost everything which as you know helps his damage more. The biggest draw here is him having Barrage, imagine a weakened enemy being hit with this move it's already does reasonable chunks to enemys with high HP. with the proper buffs, and equips. But, with Artemios it's gonna hurt that much more. I know you may be asking, why not Hero Rings? Well, to tell you the truth when I did the math for the boost between Hyper Wrist & Hero Ring they were the exact same in boost both came up to be 111. So, Hyper Wrist is there for a easier equipment option for you.

    Killer Bow: The Killer Bow is currently not released at the time of this build posting. But, Barchiosaur (the trial you need to beat) should be coming in a few weeks time so use this to prepare your materia now!

    This build takes quite a bit of time to make your best bet to get these slayer effects as materia is either when you're actually trust farming, or when FP is boosted to 50 per friend and you can grind even quicker. Ultimately, the materia slots will take the longest time cause it's completely random if you pull any of those 3 units from the FP gate. But, just be patient with it and you shall be awarded with your better prize.

    Artemios would greatly appreciate stat buffs, and debuffs for the set to reach it's peak potential. Fina would be a great help cause she has Cheer for the 40% ATK boost, and Vaan could also be a great slot cause of his Full Break allowing Artemios to get off the highest amount of damage possible. Which can easily chunk and kill bosses immediately.

    I (painstakingly) got killer bow for Artemios (which is still a work in progress right now). It's fun being a ranged Firion!
