One thing I would like to recommend for this build in the skills section. We all know of Mantheon's glorious double block, but I know of something better. The triple block. What I do is get 3 stacks of his passive, and W a minion to get my block up while still having 3 stacks and let the cooldown on my W reset.

When I engage in battle, I block their first attack. While they took away my passive block, I would have already attacked them getting my block up again. Then they attack me again only to have it blocked, I W them to get a third block. In this, they attack 3 times and deal little to nothing while I am at full health and about to kill them.

I live and breathe Mantheon in ranked, Mantheon got me to Platinum this season. Recently I've been going all AD because I want to assert myself as the alpha. Tanks, bruisers, carries, they all run at my sight as I can melt any of them easily. Set fear into their hearts and assert yourself early on. Let them know, no matter where they are or how many there are with them, they won't live long when Mantheon is near.

Most of everyone, I rarely have a problem laning against pantheon as jax, them lifesteal quints and that doran's blade gives me all the sustain to take his poke, eventually he runs out of mana and I cave his face in with my staff lol

Very nice guide.
It is quite sad that it is not updated for Season 4.
There is a a video which is using similar build to yours - it is a bit enhanced but it gives other users some kind of quick review of what this build can actually look like.

CodenameHobo | February 28, 2014 3:04pm
Your jokes are so frequent that they get in the way of the content. Asides from the items and masteries there is not one bit of information such as: laning dynamics, coutering and getting coutered and role in teamfights.

Ruchalus | February 26, 2014 8:48pm
One way I modified the build for myself, when against an all AD team,I replace maw with frozen gauntlet for armor, slows and extra damage. I also have 2-3 hp and mana pots on me at all times from early=mid game for in lane sustain. I find it very useful to always carry the potions.

Hi,I have started playing lol since August more or less and Pantheon has soon became my main. I like to see different buils and find the best one, however I have to ask u some questions, I hope u will answer me :)
-Many other buils says to max E instead of Q making you more powerfull in early game, it also allows u to farm more creeps and it does tons of damage on enemy. What do u think about this Watermerron?
-Moreover u don't say anything about Last Whisper, what about this on Panth?
-and finally, I don't understand so much why to put some points to increase his attack speed, like 3 on Fury and one on Frenzy, what about put this points on sorcery and Butcher?? The first one reduces cooldown, while the second helps to farm a little more.
P.s u should update the guide, black cleaver recipe is changed. I hope u will answer me, tx for the guide, it makes me like Pantheon, good job :)

I personally like to have an IE in there somewhere, given that you have that 100% crit chance, the extra 50% really helps to finish someone off. But still, love the guide. :)

ricosuave4 | July 16, 2013 5:58pm
Greeting Watermerron, I found your guide useful in the beginning when I first started Pantheon. Now that I main him and have a 2 to 1 average top lane ranked or non-ranked, I wish to have a in-depth discussion with you, if possible, and maybe 1 v 1 ya (username: rico suave danny)

First, the positives:
A)Loved the 1 v 3, funny as heck.
B)Agree with your maw idea
C) like your guardian angel idea of you're already op (cuz it costs a LOT to build)
D) also your inspiration and passion was clear in the guide

Now for critiques:

A) Movement speed over attack quints? pantheon has the fastest movement speed of the game, and that extra attack would help with cs and trades. I want ur opinion on this.
B) Remove meki's pendant as it is not a season 3 item
C) We need more talk for starting on top lane. pantheon in his first levels is weak, so he needs sustain to keep him steady top lane. I have tried nearly every possible start, and you should suggest in the guide for a:
(x1) Crystalline Flask
(x2) mana potions
(x1) health pot so he can far without being pushed outta lane.
Starting with a doran's blade is horrible against ANYONE with a poke.
D) I disagree with Atma's Impaler, with that much money invested, you can get sooo much more like a Frozen Heart for a little bit more. The crit chance is useless unless you suggest auto attack panth, for which he is an AD Caster.
E) Trading Infinity Edge over Blood Thirster? Bad choice in personal opinion. Your q only critical strikes at less than 15% health, it does NOT proc critical strikes. This would apply for auto attacks. Panth would need the extra AD Blood Thirster offers, and since you did suggest farming, it will always be fully maxed. Plus, the lifesteal is a defensive mechanism to help you live. You say Bloodthirster temps you into an Auto-Attack build, but you're doing the same with an Infinity Edge!

Also what needs to be included:
Pantheon's Role in team fights.
Playing 95% of my games as Panth for over 4 months, this needs to be said. It's what'll help many players. Additionally, this is where most Panth players "fall off" as they do not know what to do when it comes to team fights except rush in and die.
From what I've discovered so far (and I will need your expert opinion on this Watermerron):

He has essentially two roles: The Initiator (aka the carry destroyer) and the finisher.
The Initiator: He is the one who ults in and will be focused, but will destroy the carry. Mind you, you will be likely focused and killed after killing the carry. BUT to counter this, win the team fight (after destroying the carry), and possibly live, you need to coordinate your team with your initiation. Nothing is worse (and I know everyone's seen it) where Panth Ults in to an entire team, and gets owned in seconds, wasting an ult and a life. I suggest big coordination so that when you ult, your team pushes max throttle and so with sooo much damage being done, (the ult doing damage to everyone in range) there is little counter, and they will go down.

The finisher: Staying huddle in your team and letting your adc and pac (ap carry) widdle down the enemy, you find an enemy (preferably not the tank) at less than 1/2 hp and do your combo (W, E, Q) to kill them then hide while your cooldowns resent (which is a max of 5 seconds). This is safer, but leaves you carries more vulnerable in team fights. What do you guys think?

Additionally: I have taken your build into consideration, and use a couple items from it.
For all those interested, this is the average build I use with no counter-building.
1. Blood Thirster (for max offense)
2. Black Cleaver (for armor shredding)
3. Mercury Treades (Magic Resist + Tenacity)
4. Frozen Heart (20% Cooldown for faster casting, mana sustain, tons of armor, and anti-carry passive, and helpful in team fights)
5. Maw of Malmortius (life saving barrier, more AD when low, and panth stacks/lives off of AD)
6. Warmog's Armor (health boost in team fights)

This build is geared towards living through team fights, so he doesn't fall off.
Anywho, that's just my personal opinion, none-the-less, this is a great guide, and look forward to hearing from you/one day challenging you 1 v 1 Watermerron for the fun of it! :D

P.S. username is rico suave danny if you accept my invitation to a duel! >:)

With this build i win about 80-90% of all my games with panth and i get fed like 50% of them with more than 15 kills. i would recomend buying 2 hp and 2 mana pots to start with so you can spam spears and easily pick up a kill at lvl 3.

excellent guide! keep up the good work.

7Hellz | June 8, 2013 2:45am
There's something that's bugging me.Infinity Edge's passive with critical strike damage doesn't affect Spear Shot crits.It will only help autoattacks against targets with 15% health or less to do more critical damage.Since Pantheon is an AD caster I don't find IE to be a very good item for damage.
But everything is good,great job with this guide it even had nipples in it!

How... did this get top guide? Not only is the build wrong, but it's not an actual guide. There is nothing that talks about how to actually play Pantheon. All I see, is "level this up in this order, durrhurr, then buy this, even though it doesn't work. I'm not gonna actually tell you how to play him, but TOP GUIDE HURRDURR". This is the epitome of bad mobafire guides.

The guide is comically written... but it really isn't all that useful. It doesn't deserve the high rating that it has as there's minimal (if any) explanation on effective skill use, laning, teamfights, and items.

Nice guide. I appreciate that you have a tanky build for Pantheon; great for tearing down the adc in the middle of a teamfight. However, this is the build how I would put it:
    Starting off: Rejuvenation Bead, 8 health pots, or 6 health pots and 2 mana pots
    First trip back: Boots of Speed, Giant's Belt
    Second trip back: Black cleaver, start building Phage
    From there you get Frozen Mallet, Warmog's, Ninja Tabi, Last Whisper, Bloodthirster (Black Cleaver)

This is a good guide. But I have one question. Last Whisper is the last item in the build, but there's no space for it, so what should I sell? The Black Cleaver?

I have almost never made it that far in a game that I can buy Atma's Impaler. I like the build but usually there are better alternatives to the Atma's Impaler, like Infinity Blade or Trinity force.

+1 Great guide

One question on Grand skyfall - I have seen people playing panth use his ulti and he lands VERY fast once i see the template on the ground, when i use the ulti playing as panth the delay from the template seemto take much longer is there any item that reduces the landing time (CDR?)or is it relating to the level of the ulti.

Has anyone else noticed this ?

It's probably an illusion.
You know it's going to happen when you cast it, so you expect it to land in a certain amount of time.
Therefore your brain predicts when it will happen, and notices it immediately.

However, when you're on the enemy team, you have no idea what's coming.
The MINIMUM time for you to notice, with no reaction, would be 0.2 seconds.
That's a whole 0.2 seconds you already knew about it as the caster.
Relate it to brain speeds, and it seems like a hell of a lot slower, but by the time they can process to react the ultimate already begins to land, giving the illusion it occurs fast.

+1 Great guide

One question on Grand skyfall - I have seen people playing panth use his ulti and he lands VERY fast once i see the template on the ground, when i use the ulti playing as panth the delay from the template seemto take much longer is there any item that reduces the landing time (CDR?)or is it relating to the level of the ulti.

Has anyone else noticed this ?

Outdated guide. The new assasin meta, where panth is played at high elo, favors a way different build.

Stop playing Pantheon like a *****, either you go all damage or you are useless.

Most useful pantheon guide yet, pantheon is one of the only champs I play on pvp and my main but until now I used to build him as a low health, squishy champ that would burst dps but no sustain, now I build this way and I can do both, I have tried this many pvp games using this build and it works every time and most of the time ive even carried my team and get fed and slaughter the enemy team. This build even lets you sustain under getting focus.(well somewhat) but overall good build.

+1 :3

PICTURE!!!!11!!1!

Note: the score at the very top isn't so great because I had a troll team. Score at very bottom isn't so great because that was my first game with Pantheon :3

Towards the top you show boots, health, dorans, phage, cleaver, merc treads, Frozen mallet, etc etc

But in the "early" and "mid game" items you list Trinity Force, Ghost Blade and Thirster, along with late game infinity edge and Atma's but Infinity isn't listed in the top with your build order. Not trolling but genuinely wondering, which section is the "better" build or the true build as you intended?


Hey man, Great to see you're getting into LOL. The top build is the most suitable, balanced, all-round build. The items listed later on are situational, so you would take Infinity Edge for damage, or Tri-Force for utility. In the end it is up to you which items to purchase, any items listed on this guide are viable on Mantheon.

I must say this guide by itself made my nipples get inteligence on their own and started a civilization.

Anyways, altho i still don't have lvl for the full potential of this guide, i still can say that it is a good and solid build, at least item wise and i can also see some changes with the runes i already have and masteries.

And yes this fine specimen of champion needs some training before pulling out his full battle potential.
Definitely voting positive on this one.

Hi I play panth quite a bit and was wondering what you thought about a build I developed myself
I pref 21/2/7 grabbing expanded mind and meditation so I can harrass a lot early on and still have the mana I need to jump on someone after a bit and do a full combo.

I also run Arm pen quints and reds with armour yellows and MR blues

My reasoning being I lvl spear first and use it to keep them off me while I last hit my arse off to 1650 gold then buy a BF sword straight up.

Now i have found if you can achieve a bf sword say pre lvl 6 or 7 with Arm pen runes you can easily kill tanks. Ideally this is in a situation of 1v1 at top. Rushing the early IE then going either merc treads or Ninja tabi then phage into frozen mallet.

Now by the time you have a BF sword/pick axe you should be ulting and ganking mid soo as its up. Using your ult to either zone them forward for your mid to kill or getting your stun off before you land so they are in the middle of your ult or near it.

To combat the enemies fear of you and stacking armour I then buy last whisper then maw if the game is going longer than that ,(Rarely if Im up to a maw im one shotting the adc after i ult on top of them or the ap mage), either a banshees for the health and bubble or a randuins for the health and armour plus slow makes kiting nigh impossible:)

Anyways sorry for the long post just wanted to explain myself more than: these are items k go make a judgment call.

Also of note I did use to go for the brutalizer ages ago but I found its nothing mroe than a trap as its damage is mediocre and ghostblade is meh with LW which you should be building imho every game. Relying on your early game strength in order to capitalise and have early game arm pen not so much of a waste when people grab armour.

Anyways cheers in advance


Yeh bro seems like a good build, glasscannon is very viable, but its pretty squishy. Its your call, but if you want to play like a Mantheon, you gotta follow this build

GodlessCommie | October 15, 2012 9:10pm
The build was ok, but I'm confused. You keep parading him as an AD caster, but you build an off-tank sustain fighter. There's no Mana in the build, and you even actively turn down CDR; Both of which are the cornerstones of the "Caster" part of "AD Caster," especially Pantheon. He has lots of tank potential and dueling capability with this build, but casting is far from the focus.

[-]
digideus | October 15, 2012 4:30pm
Good guide (as good as they get actually) but any build with Pantheon is not going to be easy. Early game requires a lot of mana and farming, Mid game needs damage and AP and late game needs Armour and teamwork. I adapted my own item choices on top of this guide to suit my playing style (as should anyone) but I often find Lv14-18 harder than the early game because the opposition has had a chance to complete their builds which negate his solo power.

Still, great guide. top marks

Yes TF is a great item on any AD caster, of which there are few. Hopefully they will bring in more in the future. I did include TF in my suggested items category, but I find it a bit expensive for what it does for Panth, and also leaves him a bit squishy. Just my opinion, feel free to take it on him if it makes you moist

One suggestion on the organization of the guide, though. In the items sections, you talk about a bunch of different items such as Trinity Force, Youmuu's, and Bloodthirster, and how these can be used in a more assassin-type build, but you only have a single item build path at the top of the guide. It would be a helpful reference if you created a second build that included these items instead of just listing the off-tank Panth build that you currently have there.
