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.
Pantheon has been nerfed a lot but still can be deadly. It's my main character and is so fun to play. I used to go 100% damage but i now play him with the MANAMUNE (as u can see in my item list TEAR OF GOD. is there but MANAMUNE isnt on mobafire yet). Pantheon is a little over powered early game but compensates for being squishy late game. I'll explain everything I know about him and yes I know, i should include more pictures in my build mr website owner.
The spear, Q is your 1st spell and perfect to harass the lowest health ennemy your facing. With the mana regen item you take 1st, you'll be able to spam enough. The aegis of zeonia, W is a small stun greatly effective when chasing someone or to interrupt a deadly ennemy ultimate like Nunu's one or Kat's one. The E, heartseeker is great to kill minion waves or to do some damage to many ennemies in a team fight. The grand Skyfall is a great spell to be used as a teleport from base to your lane, to protect an unguarded tower or to simply gank mid when Ashe is owning your mid partner.
W,E,Q or R,W,E,exaust,ignite,Q. The W will stun the ennemy long enough so you can heartseek him( E ) and throw him a spear. If exaust and ignite are up and you're jumping on a squishy ennemy, don't hesitate to use EVERYTHING on him for that kill.
This is my favorite to play champion. It's ult can allow u to gank anywhere on the map, so BE AWARE OF THE MAP. I usually ping 3 times where i'm gonna land letting know my teammates where i'm ganking. The first time they probably won't react fast enough but the second time they'll jump in knowing your circle (landing zone) will soon appear on the ground.
PANTHEON BLOCKING PASSIVE...
Every fourth attack pantheon blocks the next physical attack no matter what damage and even blocks turret hits. Be aware when it's up and dont hesitate tower diving for a kill as it will block 1 turret hit.
100% CRITICAL CHANCE ON 15% OR LESS HEALTH ENNEMIES....
This is deadly 1 on 1 specially when you did exaust Master yi, Ashe or something like that. It's also why i have increased critical damage runes and not increased critical chance. Infinite edge is also incredibly necessary mid-late game as your crit damage increases to 250% instead of 200% + your runes.
I start with the TEAR OF GOD., since I want it to stack ( mana increased after each spell used). For that you will barely never miss mana and remember that the MANAMUNE item increases your damage based on your max mana. Then i buy BERSERKER BOOTS or MERCURY BOOTS if facing heavy stun/snare/cc team. Then you complete the MANAMUNE and there your damage starts going up. FROZEN HEART AND BANSHEE'S VEIL. The first you'll complete will depend on if you're facing heavy physical or heavy magic damage. BANSHEE'S VEIL, as explained in my Cho'Gath build, is incredible. Do never forget it blocks one negetive spell every 30 sec ( how may 30 sec in a 45 minute game...). FROZEN HEART will give you the armor you need, the mana to again increase your damage with MANAMUNE and dont forget it's passive.... besides lowering cooldowns of 25%, it slows ennemy's attack speed by 20% giving you a clear advantage on 1 on 1 or even team fights. The LAST WHISPER is up to you. Personnaly i sometimes trade it for MADRED BLOODRAZOR. One of those 2 items will greatly help you facing ennemy tanks and they both will grant you increased attack speed to destroy a turret very fast. I go INFINITE EDGE last because I want the survivability first then the mega damage. It will greatly increase your damage and dont forget it's passive, you now deal 250% critical damage + your runes.... ouch!
As explained earlier, EXAUST can be dealy facing another physical opponent like Master yi or just to slow down an ennemy running from you because he knows you'll eat him. IGNITE can be traded for flash or ghost if you feel it but i prefer ighite.... I rarely see an ennemy running away with one health bar when I have ignite. It's that little damage, or that last hit that gives you the kill.
IN AND OUT...
As Pantheon, in team fights, I go in and out. At the end of the build you'll have like 2.5k health and average armor. You can't afford staying in the middle of the fight. Go in and out and please, low health ennemies first like Ryze, Annie or Miss Fortune.
Pantheon is great to backdoor. Remember it's a turret game. Your Grand Skyfall ultimate is perfect to jump top when everybody is bot.
Dont be like those selfish summoners who only think about destroying their turret and then saying you did bad on your side. With your jump, you can easily turn a fight that one of your friend is losing on the map. You can easily gank (dont forget to ping) AND MY FAVORITE... you can jump directly on the head of a low health ennemy retreating to his base. The harder is to estimate his movement speed because you wanna land directly on an ennemy currently running in the fog of war.... It's hard but i regularly get called pro panth when doing that.
So.... Pantheon is my favorite champion. The name is Patsoundz and I hope this was useful for you.
