Not Updated For Current Season
Hello and thank you for looking at my guide!
First of all i wan't to tell you why Revive Pantheon is ever something you would wan't to try:
1'st Revive will give you a lot of XP in the laning phase because you will not be dead..
2'nd (And the main reson for picking it) When it comes to teamfights you will be playing 6 vs 5, because when ever the teamfight is starting, you just simply jump in like a ****** with Aegis Of Zeonia (W) and you will (if your team is ready) get your main focus down. Then, when the other team finds out what the f.. is going on, they will ofc. slay you, because you are in the middle, and hopefully they will blow a lot of CD's. You just revive, and ultimate back in the fight.
That is why revive Pantheon is both good, and lots of lots of fun!
Hope you like it!
So as i see it the Marks, Glyphs and Quintsessences is pritty normal for a Melee DPS, but something i have been ask'd so many times is this:
"WHY WOULD I EVER PICK MANA REGEND. RUNES ON A MELEE DPS!?!?
The answer is pritty simple: "Pantheon uses a **** ton of mana!" And he really does! Erly game you pick the spear to last hit with or more, make the last hitting more easy for you, but the spear is like a mana sucking mechine! Before you know, you are oom, and when your jungle come to gank your solo top, you will have no mana for stun, and your lane will be the same.
Another thing i have been ask'd a lot of times is this:
"WHY WOULDN'T YOU GO 21 UP OFFENSE OR UTILITY!?!?"
Well, the reson you go 21 up in something is if you need the masteries that are on the way up there, and not to forget, need no other masterie more!
That is why i don't go 21 up in offense, because i need those CDR masteries and Movement Speed masteries in Utility. The reson i don't go 21 Utility is because i need the amor pen. more than i want my summ. spells to have a shorter Cooldown.
Yes i have seen the other guides on mobafire about how to play Pantheon, and yes i have noticed that they all go with a doransblade in the start, and yes i will now tell you why i don't allways do that, but why i sometimes do it, but why... YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!
The reson i more often than not buy boots of speed as my first item, is because i like to go solo top. I personally think that Pantheon harmless without he's ultimate, and i need that ultimate to make the whole "Revive thing" happend, thats why i pick a solo lane and play Pantheon as a tanky-dps more than a AD Carry.
Thats how simple it is.
Soooo, i guess the real question about the skill order is:
"WHY STUN OVER SPEAR!? THAT IS NOT WHAT THE OTHER GUIDES SAYS!?!?"
You are right, the other guides says that you shall pick spear over stun, but that is not what revive Pantheon is about. Revive Pantheon is about jumping in and getting your team to kill the main focus, and sinse your stun is getting longer and longer at eatch level, it will be easy as f... to take down the main focus (That often want to flash away).
As Pantheon you like farming! Specially when you have gotten your bloodthirster you want to have is full fast, because all your spell's are scaling with attack dmg.
But also don't be scared of leaving your lane using your ultimate, after all that is what its for. But remember! The other team can see if you are missing the lane and they will often be fast at saying "Care mid" or "Inc. Pantheon bot" because they know about your ultimate, so the best trick with pantheon is this: "Make sure your opponent in the lane has seen you, move in to the brush WHILE you are in "FOC" (the area where your opponent can see you) and use your ultimate for a gank, in that way your opponent will not call for "Inc Pantheon" or "Take care SS/MIA" because he think your in the brush, that will make the supprise element A LOT stronger.
But that was all i had to say about Revive Panteon, last i quick would like to tell you why i play Pantheon like this:
The reson number 1. is that i sometimes get a litle bored of playing League Of Legends, and when i do that, i want to have fun, take the "try hard hat" off and do something funny with the game, but the problem is that if i do something bad in the game, it will give other people that has not taken the "try hard hat" off, a big problem. So i found out that revive Panteon is both really fun, but also good for the team. Thats why i'd like YOU to try it, and that is why i made this guide, because all tho i didn't find out this way of playing him, i really enjoi it, and i want to show the world how i do it.
So please comment and rate this, so that other people can see how to play a fun, and good Pantheon, with the not that used summ. spell: "REVIVE!"
Thank you for reading all of my ********, and have a nice day.
