Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Before you read!
This is how I play Pantheon, play it like wou want, add/remove all you want (items, skills, runes,...), its just a little "Help" to play him. :D
My Guide (the Instruction)
First let me tell you this is not any extreme-pro-i will kill everyone with this guide-guide, its just a normal, (i think) good guide, use it or not :D
ah, yes, im german, so my english is not the best, but hopefully good enough.
PS: An overfeedet Spartan is the baddest thing u can see. IF you can see him. ;)
Pros and Cons of Pantheon
very good in early game, and still good in late game
very very powerful ulti
wearing an helmet and a speer
not the best life
focussed very often
Wriggleys is in my opinion one of the best early game items ingame.
nice early damage
a ward, very useful
its important to buy it, but if u do not need it, sell it at the end, for:
another Infinity Edge, Last Whisper or The Black Cleaver.
9x Greater Mark of Desolation gives me nice early armor pene.
9x attack speed? nice, good for Pantheon.
9x sh*t, I have no Magic Resistance - No Problem, with these Runes!
1x Greater Quintessence of Desolation More Armor Pene?? yeah, hammer time!
2x Attack damage! This is Sparta!
Should be self-explaining, Pantheon have do do Damage! :D
The Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge, Phantom Dancer and Frozen Mallet should be self-explained, oh, yes, and Berserker's Greaves. :D
If you need more Survivability, dont buy the Frozen Mallet, buy Banshee's Veil.
Oh, and if you need Infinity Edge more than The Bloodthirster, buy it first.
I use Ignite and Flash;
nice damage in early game, and useful if they have any good healers, like Soraka, Swain...
I love this Spell! Get away from enemys faster, flash to enemys to kill them... Really good!
Do it. Just do it.
Oh yes, another thing:
If there are many minions, its ok to use Heartseeker Strike, very nice farm!
