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.
Hey everyone. Pantheon has always been my favourite champion because of his deadly strikes that can easily wipe out an enemy champs hp in an instant, this guide is going to show you how to own with pantheon.
Pros / Cons
Good at farming
Tower Dives without taking damage from the turret (sweet)
100% crits enemies below 15%
Now his spearshot also gives out crits
Carries most games
Great at ganking with his ulti
Poor escape mechanism
Gets focused in team fights as he does huge damage
9x Greater Mark of Desolation Greater Mark of Desolation and 3x Greater Quintessence of Desolation Greater Quintessence of Desolation = This is a must have I expect all Pantheon players to have it.
9x Greater Seal of Evasion = I would recommend this but if you want you could go for other runes.
9x Greater Glyph of Clarity = Use for harassing in lane and keep a decent amount of mana.
1st off take a Doran's Blade then last hit the minions to be sure you would get gold. Farm up and port back to base and get yourself Berserker's Greaves then rush The Brutalizer and it should then be smooth sailing from then on. Farm up 3 B.F. Swords (but then the game should be over, if not. Here is how you would complete the rest of your build) Once you've got 3 B.F. Sword first turn 2 of your B.F. Sword into "The Bloodthirsters" and turn the 3rd B.F. Sword into an Infinity Edge. Now the last item should be a defensive item that can counter the opposition eg. if they have a lot of ap in the enemy team you should get a magic resist item or if your up agaisnt and ad/dps get a health or armor item (thornmail).If your just literally pawning them get a 3rd Bloodthirster.
Pantheon laning top/bot:
Level 1: Heartseeker srike
Level 2: Spear Shot
Level 3: Aegis of Zeonia
At level 4,5,7,9 max out your heartseeker strike because you will be aiming at more than one champion.
Level 6: Grand Skyfall
After Maxing your heartseeker strike max Spear shot, and complete all other skills after that.
Pantheon laning mid:
same thing here but instead of maxing out heartseeker, max spear shot first because you should be up agaisnt 1 champion.
These 2 summoner spells are best for Pantheon.
Exhaust: Used for slowing down an enemy during a chase or being chase. Used for reducing an enemy attack damage or ability power.
Flash: Running away from an enemy or used to help last hit an enemy.
Other Summoner spells
Ghost: chasing an enemy or quickly run away. Flash can already help do this but in a much faster way
Heal: heals you and your teammates. nothing much can that really help you kill an enemy?
Revive: I've never seen a Panth with revive before and never will. Its useless YOU ARE A MEAN KILLING MACHINE.
Teleport: not needed your ulti can help you cross around the map
Clarity: you already have your mana regen runes so its also not needed
Ignite: Burns the enemy with true damage yeah its useful but Exhaust and Flash is way more useful than Ignite
Clairvoyance: Panth knows where his enemies are already what's the point of this?
In a team fight you are most likely to be the first one to be aimed at so always go last in a team fight and let the tank go in. Once in a team fight heartseeker where most of them are. Don't even think about heartseekering a low hp champ on their own otherwise it's a waste. Once done heartseekering the group then you can spear shot that low hp champ you wanna kill so bad.
You can also start a Teamfight with your ulti but it'll be safer if it already has been started therefore the whole team can take the damage.
If you think theres some things missing please tell what it is and I'll fix it.
Hope this guide helps you :)
