Not Updated For Current Season

Hello, and welcome to my short and sweet guide to Pantheon.
I bet the first thing you're thinking is "WTF? REVIVE? WHAT A NOOB!" but let me explain myself. Revive is AMAZING on Pantheon. It allows you to just join in on a teamfight without fear of dying, because when you die, you can just revive and ult in. It allows you to dish out huge amounts of damage and be very helpful to your team. It also will make it hard for the enemy team because it is like 5v6, since when they kill you you come back. They have to kill you twice. I highly recommend Revive on Pantheon.
I love this summoner ability. It is amazing for any situation. Allows you to chase or run, and with Youmuu's Ghostblade active, you will be faster than Rammus on Meth.
This is my personal favorite Pantheon build. It provides a good amount of damage and armor pen, and some attack speed so you aren't useless once your abilities are off cd(yes i'm talking about you Katarina). As you can see, I get a second The Brutalizer after my Youmuu's Ghostblade. This is because they stack. So you will get the CDR and ArP from The Brutalizer along with Youmuu's Ghostblade This will make you a force to be reckoned with. I get Sword of the Occult because it should be easy to stack with Pantheon, and it will provide the AD you are missing from not stacking B.F. Sword I get 2nd level boots late because Youmuu's Ghostblade active provides enough until later on. I like to get Zeke's Harbinger because later in the game Pantheon will fill a better role with attack speed. Also, the ArP will be helpful for those late game armor stackers. My typical order is in the Build Sequence.
If you feel like you don't have enough damage, then go ahead and grab a couple B.F. Swords. Just skip Zeke's Harbinger and stack 2 B.F. Swords from there. Turn these into The Bloodthirster. I don't think you should skip Youmuu's Ghostblade and The Brutalizer because the Cooldown Reduction and ArP help a lot. And Youmuu's Ghostblade active is really good.
Only use your Heartseeker Strike on squishys. Don't waste it on tanks because it will do very little damage and the cd won't be up again until you are either dead or the fight is over.
It is important to harass Early Game, but don't do it so much that you don't have enough mana for your 1-2-3 combo ( Spear Shot, Aegis of Zeonia, Heartseeker Strike). You have the mana runes to help, but they aren't enough to allow you to spam your abilities.
Try to save your ult for the Revive Grand Skyfall combo. It is a great combo and it feels cool to do it.
