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.
Hello I'd like to introduce you my first Guide which is based on the expeience of ranked games.
My name ingame is AE3AE and i play on the eu west server.
I usually play ranked games and my elo is at 1222 right now.
Well I'm German and that means my english is not that good so pls try to overlook that :D
This guide tells you the way how to play Pantheon as an off-tank (solo top)
Fizz Patch: Nothing happened to Panth, but I had to update the Masteries.
Changed Quints after Several Test to ArmPen
Pantheon is a Melee Dps with a Skill Shot, a stun, an AoE spell and his Ultimate which let him jump to nearly every place in the map.
He got a super early game and gets weaker the longer the game takes. But he is still useable and that's what makes him in my opinion to one of the best Champs in LoL
Pros / Cons
+ Good Early Game
+ Easy to Lasthit
+ Can Jump from one lane to another
+ One Block
- Easy to counter with Armor
- Short Range / Melee
Just give a Feedback, if you know some more Pro's or Con's I'll appreciate that
I am using Flash and Exhaust
Other good Choices
Ghost - Nice for chasing and running away
Teleport - Jumping to mid then teleporting back to top lane that sounds nice huh?:D
Useable but not that effective
Ignite - Its nice and it helps when it comes to first blood but nothing else you dont need the extra dmg
Cleanse - This Spell is O.K. , but there are better choices
Shouldnt be taken
Clarity - You dont need it , cause you wont have troubles with mana hanks to your seals
Clairvoyance - A great Spell but let this take a Support
Don't even think about it
Smite - You are not jungling...
Rally - Just BS
Revive - BS
Heal - Useful for First Blood but later on just useless.
My Masteries are 21/9/0
If u dont like the offensive Tree, you can switch to the defensive tree 9/21/0. That's no Problem.
Greater Mark of Desolation x 9
A must there are no other choices
Greater Seal of x9 / Greater Seal of Vitalityx9 / x9
I prefer Manareg, cuz with that you can use your spear not only to last hit. You can also harass your enemy.
One of the best Glyphs ingame. You will love it.
Greater Quintessence of Desolation
I prefer Hp/lvl cuz you will have a huge advantage in the laning phase
/] + 3/4 x
With those starting items plus your quints you should be able to hold your lane a long time
If you took as starting item u can build it to
Also a cheap item which really helps u early game.
With it u have a free ward. And you can easily sell it if you need place for a better item.
This is a great item and fits Panth very well. One of the best items for early game.
These are just the best shoes ingame 'nuff said.
Now build ur Brutalizer into
From now on build , , and
The order depends on the game... if you need surviveability think about Frozen hammer and Banshees.
If u need Dmg build Bloodthirster first.
Atma's should be your 5th or 6th item, after your frozen hammer
Btw Always take a ward with you, so that you wont get ganked
Max your Ultimate first.
Next is your Q "Spear Shot"
Then your E "Heartseeker Strike"
And the Last one is your W "Aegis of Zeonia"
We max Q over E because : - easier to last hit with Spear Shot
- Usually Heartseeker won't deal his full dmg
- Your harassing is better the earlier you are maxing it
Your Goal is to get as much last hits as possible.
If your enemy is going to attack you give him a spear right in his face and make him think twice about it ;D
Btw With Panth You play one of the best Early Game Champs you should be able to finish off your enemy 1 on 1 in most cases
Keep Creep farming. And if you see a teamfight just jump in with your ultimate and dont be afraid of initiate with your Ulti. If you see a good moment just jump'em in their faces
Try to stun their carry so, that your team is able to kill their main dmg dealer.
Also try to save your own carry.
Your stun could decide a teamfight so use him wisely.
Thanks for reading my first Guide.
And please leave a feedback
Good Luck and Have Fun
...sorry again for my bad english...;D
