Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This skill is VERY handy. It allows Mantheon to stay in combat, tower dive, jungle strongly, and is the reason it is best to play him as an AD caster. Use Heartseeker Strike to stack Aegis Protection, remembering that Aegis of Zeonia refreshes your block. As such, if you already have stacked your Aegis Protection, save your Aegis of Zeonia till after your block has been negated to get that extremely powerful "double block".
A great spammable ability. Very powerful early game, but doesn't scale strongly into late game, so max it early. Spam with caution, however, as even with a reasonable mana cost, you still run the risk of becoming OOMed if you over-use this skill. Use Spear Shot to last hit, harass, deal damage, stack your Aegis Protection and most fun of all, KILL STEAL, or kill secure, as us perpetrators may wish to call it.
AEGIS OF ZEONIA
One of Mantheon's defining abilities. He leaps into the air, crashing down on his opponent with the all of his force, slamming his shield into his enemy's jellied face. This ability stuns them for 1 second, which does not increase when Aegis of Zeonia is levelled. This skill also refreshes your block, so you can confidently jump into team-fights or initiate with this ability. Costs significant mana early game, so use sparingly. Max it in sync with your Heartseeker Strike.
Very handy passive to Heartseeker Strike that means Mantheon has 100% crit-chance on enemies below 15% health. This makes last hitting, KSing and genrally destroying enemies 1v1 a breeze.
Mantheon thrusts his crotch forwards in a cone, dealing 3 swift strikes to all enemies caught within its radius. This ability is a short-ranged skill shot. It is great for clearing minion waves, stacking your Aegis Protection, and dealing damage. It can be cancelled by right-clicking, so be wary when reverting to auto-attacking that you have deal all 3 strikes on your enemies. Doesn't deal significant damage until levelled, so max it second.
Probably one of the most fun Ultis in the game. Mantheon flexes his luscious thighs and leaps into the air, where he chills for a moment, before crashing down on his enemies with balls of steel. This very skill differentiates good Mantheon players from the rest. This is due to the fact that Grand Skyfall is VERY hard to hit, and requires a lot of skill and practice to execute well. Grand Skyfall can do up to 1000 damage at level 3, so it is best utilised when it actually hits someone, however in certain cases, albeit less satisfying, it can also be used as a short-ranged teleport.
TIP: When Grand Skyfall is activated, there is a window where you can also choose to use Aegis of Zeonia on a nearby enemy champion. This window occurs when Mantheon has leapt and is about to fall. If you target an enemy champion with your Aegis of Zeonia, Mantheon will hit the ground and immediately jump to the champion, stunning them, and guaranteeing the damage from Grand Skyfall's shock-wave.
