The Artemis is a ranger modeled after the destroyer class. In addition to standard ranger traits, when it deals enough damage to its enemies, it launches a drone that has even longer range and can disrupt enemy Phasing.

Note that Tier 8 ships have a fixed repair time which is not affected by equipment.

Strategy and Setup[edit | edit source]

Advantages[edit | edit source]

Like other Tier 8 ships, the Artemis has greatly increased movement speeds over Tier 7 ships and thus can better dodge incoming shots and rearrange fleet formation. It also has a fixed repair time of 2 hours, regardless of equipment, so it could return back to the fray in a relatively short amount of time.

The Artemis has one extra armor slot over the Vector at all levels, and one more than the Valrayvn at Mk VI. This balances out the fact that shields are vulnerable to shield bypass, enabling the ship to survive longer even against Umbra Hulls.

The Artemis has more potential range than any other non-dreadnought Tier 8 ship due to its Hunt overdrive, which is essentially a free squadron. Similar to the Aerico, when the squadron is destroyed, the ship activates its Vengeance overdrive which makes it slightly more agile, and its weapons more accurate. In addition, Vengeance enables the ship's normal weapons to apply the Weapon Disrupted debuff on hit.

The Artemis applies a heavier Phase Hacked effect than the other Altairian Tier 8 ships even without considering its overdrive, making it even more effective at disrupting enemy Phasing. Like the other ships, it also does extra damage to screens, thus improving its overall effectiveness against the Pharmakon faction.

Disadvantages[edit | edit source]

The Artemis' squadron has relatively low health and can be easily destroyed before even reaching its target. Enemies can also potentially shoot at the squadron while remaining out of the Artemis' main weapon range, in order to snipe the Artemis from afar.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Artemis is the first Tier 8 ship capable of launching a squadron. Later, the Monitor was released, which could also launch squadrons via its overdrive.
