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 is my Pantheon, the Artisan of War guide.
Pantheon is not an easy champion to play as. It requires practice and luck on either the enemies and friendlies.
Notice that the items I buy require a lot of gold to get, but you probably won't need the impaler, as your damage relies on sword of the occult.
For Marks and Quintessences, I choose Desolation Marks and Desolation Quintessences, for with your Spear Shot, you will be able to give a lot of damage to your enemies in all stages of the game.
As for Seals, Replenishment Seals are very usefull in early game, for you will have a lot of mana problems, since you want to keep spamming your Spear Shot to harass.
Glyph of Focus for the same reason as Seals, you have low cooldowns on your skills, but you want to have a Spear Shot and a Aegis of Zeonia ready as many times as possible in a fight.
21/9/0 For better damage and resistance. Although he is not a Caster, Pantheon, like i said before in my rune choice, needs cooldown reduction so that he might keep harassing without letting the enemy heal with potions.
In this stage of the game, you should do a lot of damage with your spear (except in tanks). Keep harassing the squishier target in your lane.
At level 3, you are ready to get a kill. If an enemy in your lane is half HP, it is a certain kill if you hit him with your HeartSeeker Strike and Spear. This will be your combo: W > E > Q > Q (with normal hits between).
It might also happen that the enemy is towerdiving your teammates, or pushing them back to the tower. Ping the enemy, teleport to a close minion or ward, and do the same combo. DO NOT DO THIS IF THERE IS LACK OF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR TEAM.
At this part, you should have about 6 stacks.I try to help my team and usually leave my partner soloing. Teleport to other lanes to aid them for a discreet entry, or simple use your Ultimate (Don't need to start a fight with it, if you find it hard to hit the enemy).
I don't use my Ultimate only as a weapon, i use it when my teleport is in cooldown and I want to get behind the enemy.
Same combo as before. As soon as you are in the second part of your Ulti's channeling, use W on the enemy, so that you can start attacking ASAP.
By now, you should have around 14 stacks, one warmog's and halfway there for your second one.
What you do now is:
-If you have a tank, let him start the fight.
-If you don't have a tan nor an ashe, you are the initiater, because you will have around 3000 HP, you passive's block and stun, which allows you to tower dive with your team's support.
-If your team has another initiater, let him go in first, ultimate to the enemy's back and start cleaning them from the most squishy to the one with more HP.
The only thing left to do now, is gather all your team in mid and get inside the enemy base.
