I heard about you. Look, I'm not like all the others on Olympus. The power of the hunt helps keep me company, so, maybe it'll help you, too.
~ Artemis

Artemis is the Olympian Goddess of the hunt and the wilderness. She offers boons to Zagreus which give his abilities the chance to deal Critical damage. In addition, she also offers boons that improve Cast abilities.

Since Critical hits deal three times the damage of a normal ability, Artemis boons when properly combined with other boons have the potential to deal tremendous damage, and further increase your damage output. In addition, her Cast related boons increase your total ammo or add a projectile, further enabling a powerful ranged tool.

Her signature Status Curse is Marked, which increases the chance of dealing a critical hit to the afflicted enemy, consuming the Curse and reapplying it to a neraby target. This essentially allows you to snowball critical hits in a crowd. This increase in chance will stack with her boons that offer Critical hit chance.

Artemis is one of four Olympian gods (the other three being Aphrodite, Demeter and Zeus) who will not appear in the very first run of a save. (No longer seems to be the case as of 1.0)

Affinity[edit | edit source]

If given Nectar, Artemis will give you the Adamant Arrowhead.

Artemis' affinity gauge maxes out at 7 hearts, requiring the gifting of 6 Nectar and 1 Ambrosia.

Favor[edit | edit source]

Artemis' favor requires seeing multiple strings of dialogue in which she talks about her partner, Callisto. The gauge is unlocked when Artemis says that she feels like she can be herself with Zagreus.

Codex entry[edit | edit source]

Codex.png
'...The goddess of the hunt has always held my highest admiration. Unlike so many of her brethren on Olympus, she seems unconcerned with being praised at every turn by mortals, and instead she dutifully holds her station as a master of the natural world. Even Lord Hades may hold some respect for her, I think. Certainly her power is responsible for no small quantity of shades in this domain. Lord Hades and the Lady Artemis have certain traits in common, I suppose; each solitary and committed to their work. If only my Lord Hades understood that someone such as Artemis could be someone to confide in, rather than resent along with all the others on Olympus.'

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Artemis' boon flowchart
Artemis' duo boon chart

Some of Artemis' boons give the chance for an ability to do Critical damage. This is a modifier that causes foes to take more damage than usual. A critical hit will deal 300% damage to an enemy, without any other modifiers.

Additionally, all projectiles created by Artemis boons (her Cast Boon, True Shot, as well as Artemis' Aid projectiles, Mirage Shot projectiles, and Support Fire projectiles) will bypass held shields on Exalted Greatshields and Theseus.
