INTRODUCTION

12/10/2020:

Bruiser Style is looking good top lane over assassin. Will continue to update.


Hi, I'm Keegun. I reached top 10 in season 7 and 8 and was the highest ranked pre-rework pantheon player in season 9 with 2 accounts over 800LP. I've also held multiple challenger accounts in each of those seasons with pre-rework pantheon only.
I have played new panth quite a bit and recognize how he works and the problems he faces with the terrible rework they gave him. I have now helped address these problems with riot and they have done whatever they thought was the right move to push him back into solo lanes, mainly top. If you want to know more about it you can watch here. Riot Stuff

SUMMONER SPELLS

TOP LANE:

Flash + Teleport -

If you are not taking Ultimate Hunter always take TP. More team play oriented and gives you a saving grace in lane.

Flash + Ignite -

If you are taking Ultimate Hunter and want the strongest laning phase power and snowball in early game, run this combo with the runes I provide. Otherwise take TP.

RUNES

TOP LANE -

Bruiser Style: Good vs tanky team comps and Akali

Conqueror

Gives you most damage and sustain for long fights which is what bruiser style is for. You also stack it very quickly with his kit.

Presence of Mind

Got changed and now gives you mana regen on champion hit. Helps your mana issues. Makes you almost manaless during mid-late game where the regen really gets strong.

Legend: Tenacity

If the enemy has a lot of CC take this. Otherwise take Legend: Alacrity

Last Stand

Procs the most often as during lane you are always fighting to the death.

IF VS MELEE:

Magical Footwear

Saves you 300g to buy the Mythic item quicker and earlier in the game. Right now the meta is the faster you can get your mythic you achieve your power spike earlier and snowball earlier too.

Biscuit Delivery

Gives you +150 mana to help the mana pool. What I do instead is keep them and sell all 3 to get an extra 90g to get your mythic item quicker. In total we have saved 390g already. For reference a kill is 300g.

IF VS RANGED: REPLACE MAGICAL FOOTWEAR FOR TIMEWARP TONIC

Time Warp Tonic

Helps to give you movement speed against ranged champions for lane. Easier to catch or run away. These kind of lanes are poke heavy so going magical footwear is very bad as you'll be too slow during early laning with no boots.


Assassin Style: Good vs Squishies

Electrocute

New panth changes on 10.25 buffed his assassin style more so than bruiser so its best to play for highest burst/one-shot like old panth carry style.

Taste of Blood

Stronger for laning phase as you will recover over a lot of health during lane as well as gaining back additional health while early fighting lvl1-3. It does not proc when you are full health so it can be the entire difference during lvl1/2 fights.

Eyeball Collection

Easiest to stack among the three. Bonus AD for more damage.

Ultimate Hunter

The key component of the build. Allows you to run Ignite instead of TP giving you way more in combat power to fight and get kills. New panth R cd is 175 and is too long to play with Ignite. But luckily this rune lowers your R cd to equal old R cd at 150 once you have 2/5 stacks. After that you can get even lower and have your global up more often to compensate not taking TP.

IF VS MELEE:

Magical Footwear

Saves you 300g to buy the Mythic item quicker and earlier in the game. Right now the meta is the faster you can get your mythic you achieve your power spike earlier and snowball earlier too.

Biscuit Delivery

Gives you +150 mana to help the mana pool. What I do instead is keep them and sell all 3 to get an extra 90g to get your mythic item quicker. In total we have saved 390g already. For reference a kill is 300g.

IF VS RANGED: REPLACE MAGICAL FOOTWEAR FOR TIMEWARP TONIC

Time Warp Tonic

Helps to give you movement speed against ranged champions for lane. Easier to catch or run away. These kind of lanes are poke heavy so going magical footwear is very bad as you'll be too slow during early laning with no boots.

ITEM BUILD

Top Lane:

Starting Items:

IF THEY ARE MELEE:

Long Sword + Refillable Potion -

With the new panth changes buffing his Q making it cost -10 mana. He can hold onto his mana pool before going oom without corrupting pot start when played accordingly with recall timings. Doing this start saves you 350g on buying the mythic item and helps you to pick it up even faster. With the runes and this start we have now saved
740g from Items and Runes alone. That's almost 2.5 kills.

IF THEY ARE RANGED:

Corrupting Potion -

Still run corrupting pot if they are a ranged matchup. You need the extra sustain and the additional movement speed from time warp tonic to out maneuver these kind of lanes. With the -10ms base nerf it becomes harder to catch with W or run from their poke.

Item Build:

Bruiser Style: Good vs tanky team comps

Goredrinker - Mythic

Gives you health and damage to pair up with the bruiser style. Very useful in team fights and gives you a lot of Ability Haste to spam your kit more often.

Black Cleaver - 2nd

You get more health, cdr, and armor pen. Everything in Pantheon's basic kit can proc Black Cleaver. Q is AoE, W is physical itself, and every tick of E applies additional BC procs. The new shred passive adds tons of dmg to panth's kit and it has a cool interaction with his E which is every tick of the E procs the bonus shred dmg.

Extra: At this point of the game if they are very tanky you can buy Last Whisper and hold onto it until last item upgrade.


Death's Dance - vs AD dmg / you need armor
Maw of Malmortius - vs AP dmg / you need magic resist

Get both and whichever first based on enemy team comp

Both gives you the resistances and AD with Ability Haste so when you stack stacking up the cdr for mid-late you can spam your Q and W very often in fights.

Serylda's Grudge - Last

More armor pen to add onto panth's new innate % arpen on his R. When paired up with lvl3R panth can have 51% total arpen with this item. The slow passive now makes your abilities and entire R slow as well.

Extra Items:

Chempunk Chainsword - Get if they have lots of healing as 3rd/4th item

Thornmail , Randuin's Omen - Can get if the enemy is Full AD and skip maw as your 3rd/4th item.

Boots:

Ninja Tabi - For lots of AD/Auto attack damage.
Mercury's Treads - For lots of AP or high CC.



Assassin Style: Good vs squishies

Prowler's Claw - Mythic

This is the AD version of DFG. Increases all of your ability damage by 15% within 3sec to help one shot anyone. Too powerful of an item to give up when playing assassin style.

If enemy team is squishy:

Edge of Night - 2nd

More damage and tankiness for early-mid game. The spell shield can be the difference of surviving or catching an enemy. VERY useful when combining it with your R. When you land you wont immediately get CC'd to death. (i.e Against a Veigar, Xerath, Vel'Koz, or Caitlyn the spell shield will prevent them from using their CC right where you land)

Black Cleaver - 3rd

You get more health, cdr, and armor pen. Everything in Pantheon's basic kit can proc Black Cleaver. Q is AoE, W is physical itself, and every tick of E applies additional BC procs. The new shred passive adds tons of dmg to panth's kit and it has a cool interaction with his E which is every tick of the E procs the bonus shred dmg.

If enemy team is tanky / will be tanky eventually:

Black Cleaver - 2nd

You get more health, cdr, and armor pen. As well as the new shred passive for more damage.

Serylda's Grudge - 3rd

More armor pen to add onto panth's new innate % arpen on his R. When paired up with lvl3R panth can have 51% total arpen with this item. The slow passive now makes your abilities and entire R slow as well.

Last Items:

Guardian Angel - Best for mid-late situations. The active makes your dives more impactful during baron/dragon/teamfights.
Serylda's Grudge - If they have lots of armor or tanks.
Chempunk Chainsword - Lots of healing
Maw of Malmortius - For the MR and against heavy AP damage.
Death's Dance - If you want a more offensive armor item than GA. Costs more but is useful. Can also sell your GA late game when its on cd for this item instead.

Boots:

Plated Steelcaps - For lots of AD/Auto attack damage.
Mercury's Treads - For lots of AP or high CC.

Extra: Why not Eclipse and Duskblade of Draktharr?

Pantheon does not lack utility, he lacks damage output against other champions as the game goes on and he starts to be out scaled. Prowler's Claw costs the exact same and not only has higher AD and lethality, the active provides way more damage output in a burst scenario than either of those. Eclipse deals 6%max hp on the proc at 8sec cd. A single auto attack from old bork dealt more dmg than that. Duskblade proc deals the exact same dmg as claw except you lose out on the 15% dmg amp. Both of these items you are buying mainly for the utility they provide, not the power stats. Other champions can use it more valuably because they have in-combat ults to increase their power the later the game goes but panth does not.

TANK BRUISER

New build still experimenting with. So far so good.

Runes:

Conqueror
Presence of Mind - Early game mana sustain to start longsword refill.
Legend: Tenacity
Last Stand

Conditioning
Overgrowth

Notes:
Still experimental but seems possible. Do not use into ranged but maybe you can test for me if you want. Maybe into Gnar is ok not sure yet. You want to Zeke the carry or whoever can hit the target you W on. (ex Could be your jg/mid doesnt always have to be adc)

Summoners:
Flash + Teleport. Take tp for map plays.

Skill Order:
Q max > W Max > E Max. W max second for faster uptime with the high ability haste stacking.

Starting Item:
Long Sword + Refillable Potion vs melee

Build:
Black Cleaver > Sunfire Aegis > Zeke's Convergence > Mikael's Blessing > Any tank item.

Boots:

Plated Steelcaps - For lots of AD/Auto attack damage.
Mercury's Treads - For lots of AP or high CC.
