Artemisia is an Archer, Garrison, and Defense Commander who deals massive AoE damage in a forward-facing fan-shaped area up to 3 targets. Despite being an archer commander, she is fairly tanky thanks to her 2nd skill “Bow and Mount“. Unlike other commanders who deal damage to enemies and debuff enemies, Artemisia deals damage to herself, buffs the enemy’s skill damage and silences herself.
Fearless in speaking her mind and brave in battles, Artemisia was a queen of an ancient Greek city-state of Halicarnassus, which at that time belonged to the empire of the Persian Achaemenids. Fighting as an ally of Xerxes I, she distinguished herself as a brave warrior, who earned the respect of the King of Persia for her commanding and tactical abilities. This is the warrior Queen of Caria – Artemisia I.

Talent tree generated using RoK Talents.
This build adds some survivability in the open field. Medicinal Supplies and Loose Formation are the two most important Talents you should use on Artemesia. This is because whenever she uses “Battle of Salamis” she will damage herself (Damage Factor 300), Medicinal Supplies will negate that. Skill damage taken reduction from Loose Formation has good synergy with both “Battle of Salamis” and her expertise “Rules of Survival“.
Garrison vs Attila and Takeda
The main difference between this build and Open Field build is that, we eliminate march speed talent, and try to go for raw stats. Skill Damage reduction talents are not required against Attila and Takeda and they deal only Normal and Counter Attack damage.
Garrison vs Skill Damage
Note: There are better alternatives when it comes to defending against Skill Damage based rallies. Constantine, Wu Zetian, and Charles Martel are the best when it comes to that.
