Introduction

Hello Im Had (Had030 in game) and i am still waiting for my - 10-referrals-975-RP-reward - but that has nothing to do with my Pantheon guide ( i just wrote that in case my build becomes famous and someone from Riot looks in it, sees this and says like "Oh we may give him his RP after gizillion years" )

Ok soo many peaople find AD very efective on Pantheon - and IT IS, but i know sth even better on him.... Wanna guess? Yes? OK.... AP? Nooooooooo! MR? Noooooooooo! Mana per 5 seconds? NOOOOOOO!
BZZZZ WRONG ANSWER


ITS ARMOR PENETREATION


[*] SPECIAL THANKS TO MY BUDDY TADESX WHO HELPED ME ALOT


Guide Top

Acronyms i will use in guide

Stun - Ur W skill
Harass - Ur Q skill
Jump - Ur ultimate
Heartseeker (also called as DESTRYING EVERYTHING IT MOVES IN A SMALL AOE)


Guide Top

Introduction #2 (is that allowed?)

Now i will explain something about my viewing of building a char succesfully

[*] U must have a skill in which u will put a skill point whenever u can (Heartseeker strike)

[*] U must have 3 stats u will prioritize through ur items (1st ArP 2nd AD 3rd Crit (BOTH CRITICAL CHANCE & CRITICAL DAMAGE )

[*] U must follow a core ( 2-4 items which u will use in every situation NOT depending on who ur enemys are)


AND THATS THAT

Some of my scores using this build


AND FINNALY MY FAVOURITE!


:) here u go... votes aren't really going..


Guide Top

Runes

So for runes i take

Marks: Greater Mark of DesolationCuz they add whats most important in this guide - ArP

Quints: Greater Quint of DesolationSee marks

Seals: Greater Seal of FurorAdds to ur 3rd prioritizing stat - Crit

Glyphs: 1.See seals
2.I personnaly wouldnt take those. But if u are skeptic about clarity on Panth take them

Masteries

21-0-9 classic for chars dealing Physical DMG

Skill Sequence

As said before i take ultimate and Heartseeker whenever i can following by Spearshot and Aegis of Zeonia..

Bassicly combo which people use the most is W-E-Q = profit
ad it is profit - i have nothing more to add...

Oh wait i do!

This is one of the most used pantheon combos and the best on, but u cant preform it always cuz u will get pwned in no time. Playing Pantheon for some time and slowly becoming and expperienced player with him u will get the feel for :

- WHICH character to target with stun *
- WHEN to use stun
- WHO to target 1st with Heartseeker *
- WILL u survive if someone with higher HP is chasing u if u attack him

U see its not just easy as 1-2-3 ....

* - In many situations experienced Panth players dont heartseeker on the same target they stuned....

Summoner Spells

I prioritize Ghostand Clarity



In my opinion Ghost is the best summoner spell out there, it cant be used for: chasing, escaping, moving faster to squishies in teamfights, avoiding ganks... AND U WILL HAVE TO DO ALL OF THIS - so better take ghost, but not waste it
This saved my *** numerous times or enabled me to stay lane or catch someone with Aegis of Zeonia

If u took Mana Glyphs then go for Exaust - and put one point in it on masteries

Pros / Cons

PROS
-Extremly good assasin
-HUGE Burst
-Badass looks
-He is a Spartan
-FAST AS HELL

CONS
- Squishy / Hard to play early game
- DOESNT SCREAM DEMACIA ON EVERY ACTION
- EASY TO DODGE ULTI
- NO REAL ESCAPE MECHANISM


Guide Top

Items

For items i start with Long Swordand one HP pot

1st trip back - Normal bootsand another Long Sword
2nd trip back - Finish brutalizerand Ionian Boots of Lucidity
3rd trip back - Buy pickaxe
4th trip back - Finish Last Whisper
5th trip back - Avarice blade
6th trip back - Finish Yoummus Ghost Bladeand buy Pickaxe
Next build Quicksilver Sash
WIth this baby u are already kinda TO MUCH for CC-ers so they'l back-off, u will even escape ganks easier cause of debuff active

So now u have high ArP, enough MR and CC red and average HP & DMG. So, what item gives HP & DMG?
The answer is Frozen Malet
Now u can easily 1v2 and survive

U probably wont reach this long into the game, but what if u do?!

U have large HP, good MR and average armor... hmmm... Atmas Impaler!
This will proc ur HP into AD, and boost ur Armor a lil

Tadadaadadam PERFECT Panth build found!

Jungling

Just DONT!


Guide Top

Team Work

Last one in - Last one Out

Try to hit as many Enemy champions u can with ur heartseeker strike....
Always stun someone cahneling powerfull AoE spells - Fiddle, Nunu etc.


Guide Top

Ionian boots of lucidity v.s. Berserker Greaves v.s. Boots of swiftness

Why no Berserker Greaves?
We dont want Attack Speed cuz we arent building an AA-er. And we could use that bonus stat + enchanced movement 2 somewhere else...

Why no Boots of swiftness?Pantheon is a realy fast char so that gold goes somewhere else...

Why YES boots of lucidity?Pantheon isnt an AD Auto Attacker champion. He's an AD char relying on his abilities for which we get AD & ArP.. So because of CdR enabling him to sue abilities more often we take LUCIDITY BOOTS!
