Hey fellow summoners! I am new here and this is my first guide, dedicated to my lovely main champion Pantheon If you have some questions, come and ask me and i give you answers as good and fast as i can :)

AT THIS POINT MY GUIDE IS IN TOTAL REWORK (like Ryze on every single patch) BUT TAKE THIS NOTE. GUIDE ISN'T ACCURATE AT THE MOMENT YOU'LL FIND MANY THINGS THAT DOESN'T ADD UP EACH OTHER SO THIS WILL BE UPDATED OFTEN, (Actually not, just when i have time i'll update it) BUT ASK IF YOU REALLY WANNA KNOW SOMETHING (I don't really know if Trump will become prez so don't ask that one)

Pros / Cons

+ his Q is one of the best poke for melee in whole game
+ Ultis range is very long and has big AoE that slows enemies
+ very dominant champion if you get first blood early
+ Is great champ which can carry whole game
+ E is easy way to farm :)
+ Wants to be a baker
+ Heartseeker Strike procs Thunderlord's Decree
- Squishy
- Gathers frustration in enemy team and you get focus of them
- easy to gank if you have pushed your lane and you dont have ward.
- Uses much mana, be aware!
- needs to win early game
- Drops hard in late-game

Passive: Aegis Protection

Use your abilities or Auto-attack 4 times you get a shield, which blocks next auto-attack or turret shot, or auto-attack abilities for example Nasus Siphoning Strike. this shield aint removed by normal minions but big minions and super minions takes the shield off

Q Spear Shot

Is your main skill, your poke skill, your damage skill, your love, your enemies killer. when enemy has under 15% of health this ability make critical hit.

W Aegis of Zeonia

This ability stuns any unit and is very useful when you are engaging to to battle.
Using this ability brings Aegis Protection instantly if you havent it

E Heartseeker Strike

Is AoE high damage skill which is very useful at farming big waves of minions and in team fight.

E: Passive Certain Death

Is available whole game through (even without E)
Gives you 100% critical chance against enemies lower than 15% health this is why you survive at 1v1 close calls, pratically saves your life and gives you kill it's just certain death. suck that fiora

R Grand Skyfall

Pantheon jumps high in the sky and comes down at place you decide. Distance of this skill is very long and has big AoE which slows enemies and damages enemies in this area.

Guide Top


Farming is the most important thing for Pantheon well to be honest its the most important thing in game for every champion, but nevertheless farming with Pantheon is very easy cause of crits caused by your E ( Heartseeker Strike)'s passive. At early game don't use much your skills to farming because you need it for poking and you don't have much mana.

Guide Top


Early Game

Early game you farm until you've reached level 3 (depends on your enemy, for some enemies level 2 is enough). When you are 2 or 3 level you start poke and play aggressively and try to get first blood. After you've managed to get first blood you are in good position to win your lane. I prefer that you don't leave your lane until level 6, if you have got level 6 before first recall, you can cast your ulti on lane which grants you another kill most likely.

Mid game

help your friends out and push towers down and try to get early dragon
teamfights starts you and your team have advantage and its you and your ulti. you initiate with it and Land your ulti at middle of enemy team, find the ADC, stun him kill him. (always better if you have a Leona or Thresh who initiates) After teamfight say support to get some vision on map (if you won teamfight you keep the advantage when you have vision if you lost teamfight well you dont get more surprises)

Late game

There are 2 effective ways to your team win late game: Dominating enemy team in teamfight or backdooring to enemy base the objective is same its Nexus. If you have choose backdooring when others are in teamfight make sure that you see at least 3 of enemy team members because if you don't know where they are you are in danger if you see that two is missing you propably can take out the tower and one guy so it's always worth to you if you have very great success in early-mid game you take both enemy champs out. after this you can continue backdooring or help team in teamfights. Two ways to spend Aces: PUSH PUSH PUSH or baron and then go to another teamfight and finish the game

Guide Top


9x Greater Seal of Armor

Common and viable choice you really need it

3x Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction

5% cdr at level 18 you get your max cdr out

9x Greater Mark of Armor Penetration

arm. pen. marks over ad marks because, you don't need that much dmg at early and in the end these runes will be more useful at late game, besides there are just tanks at toplane nowadays

3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

ofc you need some ad in your runes...

6x Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction

Added to Intelligence you have 10% at lvl 1. Is worth!

Summoner spells


your only proper escape method... if you don't take it.. well you are pretty dumb


Is the thing in this meta, roam get back in lane faster just use it to split push it's the best choice.


Damages your opponent and reduces life steal of your opponent, if you use it wise you can earn kill easier than usually.


I use it only against Fiora else it's useless

Guide Top


all i gotta say about masteries is that you can almost put them on your own playstyle and own preferations one thing i just say: Thunderlord's Decree is a must

And you can select between Secret Stash and Assassin Both masteries are viable

Guide Top

Team Work

Remember that if you are losing your lane you need communicate with your jungler, because he/she can get you back in game you are never forever alone :) When you take your lanes first tower down you can and you should help your other lanes to push turrets down -> easier victory :) when the teamfight phase starts and your team jungler/support is insecure of starting teamfight, you should do it with your ulti (yeah ulti once again i said it) protect ADC!!

The core for Pantheon is movement speed, Cooldown reduction, and Pure damage this is why Youmuu's Ghostblade is perfect for Pantheon, since it brings all these 3 stuff. Ionian Boots of Lucidity is the best boots option for panth, gives 10% cdr not just for your skills but your summoners too. Dead Man's Plate as final core item is pretty unusual but it is great final core item against bruisers.

As 4th item, i've put options Death's Dance, Ravenous Hydra and Titanic Hydra, BUT if your enemy team has fed AP midlaner, take Banshee's Veil or Maw of Malmortius choice is yours whatever makes you confident with. Back to the three core items, i personally use Death's Dance it's most useful item from these with cdr and lifesteal and stuff. Ravenous Hydra is freaking good option if you wanna snowball the game, Titanic Hydra is good if you are slightly behind. If you feel like you need armor pen. Lord Dominik's Regards or you have Dr. Mundo or Volibear or Illaoi against you take Mortal Reminder

For 5th and 6th item tanky items are must if you're gonna do something in the late game. best option is Banshee's Veil as 5th item since you have armor and health in your Dead Man's Plate. 6th item is really a wildcard by now in your 5 items you have everything you need, but you may need more health at this point. Fed enemy adc makes you build nothing it makes you kill him. Too fed adc makes you buy Randuin's Omen health, armor + you take -10% from crits. As it stands like you have no clue what to build, options are Warmog's Armor and Guardian Angel your choice. Or simply you feel like you need more DMG, that's when Titanic Hydra is your last item.
