Pantheon - The Artisan of War
Pantheon is a AD melee champion, that deals a quick nuke with this 3 skill combo, he is great at 1v1 fights and great aoe and intiation skills in team fights, he is an amazing ganker due to his ult, and good at traveling around the map with it. this is a brief guide on my pantheon playstyle...kinda.
Good base movement speed
Great last hitter (100% crit chance / Spear Shot)
No natural escape
Vulnerable to CC
As you are squishy, if you were caught out of place and were stunned/slowed this is your gtfo out skill combined with... (removes exaust)
2. chasing, escaping, the usual.
3. If you're a tryhard like that >_< .
Greater Mark of Desolation | =Greater Quintessence of Desolation] Armour pen, to penetrate that ...armour, most important marks/quints for him and almost every other AD champ, mana per 5 per lvl, Panth = mana issues, since I dont get manamune in my build the seals really help, i used glyphs aswell thought i just liked having magic resis cus ap champs kill you fast if you're not careful
Core Item Build
Followed by either or both replacing hexdrinker for defence
This item builds provides very good damage as well as being out of harms way with the resistence.
Frozen Mallet is surprisingly a good first item to get, as you still deal significant dmg due to HSS you also have a **** ton of hp and people have been known to not focus sumone with 2k hp at lvl 10 first. UPDATE: now that last whisper has no atk speed you may need some, startks reduces armour so your ats will be way more lethal, as well as lifesteal and atk speed, and its team aura's
these masteries give you starting cd reduction, the armour pen you need, the mana regen you need and the move speed, not the mention the xp boost.
Your cd reduction will be at 39%(max = 40)if you were to get
(UPDATE: Randuin Nerf - less CD but still worth every penny)
This is a shield that comes up every 4th, including Spear Shot and instanly refreshing if using your stun - Aegis of Zeonia.
Last hiting, spammable skill, high damage, physical damage.
Stun! Stun! Stun! can only be used on enemy champions.
This is that "OP" skill Channeling 5 hits of pure awesome damage. Channeling, therefore will be canceld if you move or are interrupted
Certain Death - Pantheon's second passive: 100% Crit chance on targets under 15% health, you're other great last hitting skill and great for quick damage after youe W E Q nuke.
Global ult with a relatively short cd with your cd reduction, Gank with it, corner somone, block their path, channels for a few seconds so prediction is Key. Don't forget you can cancel this skill if you don't want to jump getting your mana back and the ult will go a 10 sec cooldown.
Dorans Blade, mid if you can, bot if you can't. 1 point in spear shot to last hit minions max heartseeker, try your triple, W E Q at lvl 4 and try get a kill, play safe. port back at 6 get another dorans and boots if you can. Look for someone to gank on the map with your ult.
Brtilzer working for hexdrinker, dont be by yourself that goes without saying, dont itiate fights try to postion yourself for a team heartseeker dont jump straight into 5 people.
Same thing, play safe, you have sh*t loads of AD by now if you're doing good, Heartseeker in team fights then try lockdown they're squishy
I will update the guide some more just publishing it now =D
