Not Updated For Current Season
First and foremost --- you are
is a difficult to master, very rewarding when done correctly, and fun to play as.
Your main job as is:
2v2Lane: Harras with your spear, never over-extend, not spam too many abilities(yes i said harras with spear that means OCCASIONAL harrasment)-except when jumping on someone with your 1-2-3 combo( -- -- ) when you can get a kill, and protecting your own tower.
1v1Lane: stay back early on, don't die, and jump on them as many times as you can without dying with your 1-2-3 combo when you hit level 3.
2v1Lane:WHY THE HELL ARE YOU HERE!?!?!?!? GET SOMEONE ELSE IN IT!
Remember one thing. At level 3 you crit anyone below 15% hp. So if someone in your lane has about 25% hp jump on them with your 1-2-3 combo and auto-crit. Pretty fun :).
Greater Mark of Desolation -- you are ad, these are the best marks for you.
Greater Seal of Vitality -- you are squishy. enough said.
-- you mana pool is rather pathetic. helps with that, plus with your masteries it also adds some extra health regen.
-- you have a high crit chance now plus you crit anyone below 15% hp. great quints for you.
Pros / Cons
-- You are a spartan
-- You have a jump stun amazing killing combo
-- You are a MELEE CASTER
-- High burst damage
-- All chat hate towards you
-- You are fairly squishy
-- Often targeted due to spartan flare
-- Hard to play/master
Before i start on this, you will more than likely be *****ed at for these.
Basicaly you don't join the teamfight until it starts-NEVER INITIATE. You are off on the other half of the map all the time farming. When you see both teams joined up in their formations waiting for someone to initiate and such. you jump in between them as a sign for your team saying HEY GUYS I'M GONNA SPARTAN JUMP, RUN IN NOW! and if they do, you thank them mentally for spartans never show weakness!(If they don't, cancel your jump and just run over to the fighting area and wait for someone to get gutsy and initiate.) when you jump down you instantly jump in their squishy and 1-2-3 OFF WITH THEIR HEAD! run away waiting for your cooldowns to...cool. then if the fight is still going on you jump on the one with lowest hp and most liekly someone will complain of ks cuz they "had him/her" but you are a spartan therefore EVERY kill belongs to you. (NOTE:this is a joke don't be a bastard ingame with killsteals people WILL hate you.) After you have gone in the second time, if it is STILL goin on just auto attack them all to death with certain death passive.
-- you want this first simply because it will help you sustain your lane early on.
Mercury Treads -- you are already the fastest champion in the game, therefore you really do not need the extra speed, plus these gives you a large amount of tenacity which helps you if they focus you more with their cc.
-- you want an early one of these as the B.F. sword is pretty much pantheon's trademark item, as it gives you a lot of extra damage output very early on.
-- you later want a yomuu's ghostblade, this gives you crit chance since that B.F. sword is giving you some early dmg, it also gives you 30gold every minute, why not?
-- for obvious reason- Damage - CDR - Armor Pen -.
-- this item gives you a HUGE damage spike as it increases your certain death to literally mean certain death. It also gives you a lot of extra damage on your spells and gives you a 25% critical chance. All around good item for you.
-- You later want a bloodthirster since you already have massive damage just get the lifesteal portion for now.
-- your ghostblade gives a lot to offer for you. armor pen, crit chance, and an active that gives you movespeed and attack speed temporarily with a short cooldown of 60seconds. NEVER FORGET TO TURN THE ACTIVE ON WHEN CHASING AND TEAMFIGHTS!!!
-- I find myself selling this item around this point
-- even more damage and a nice lifesteal add-on.
-- as the enemies realize how strong you are, which is normally around this point, you will want a bit more armor pen and yes, more damage.
-- gives you more attack speed so it is more viable to just auto attack people. Also gives a higher critical chance and movement speed which helps you chase down the fleeing enemies.
