Ability Order Max Q
Threats & Synergies
His damage is extreme
A champion that will, if played correctly, burst you out of existence
If he targets you in fights, the team fight will not go well. Pantheon relies on being able to Q repeatedly on the ADC
If you can get a stun, and a couple of Q's in, mordekaiser can save you, and get a free kill with his ultimate
Any champion that can drag/grab someone to your W range is perfect
The Collector is the item that will be in your core. You will execute the champion if you take them down to 5%, and you will gain extra gold per champion kill. Which is great, because with pantheon, you should be getting some kills.
Guardian Angel is another good item for Pantheon, and will give you some extra initiative to engage in fights.
Edge of Night is also a great item pick for Pantheon. If chasing an enemy, and you get CC'd, you won't have much luck catching up. With Edge of Night, you can potentially block the CC, and catch up to whoever you are chasing. It also gives you a great amount of damag and health.
Boots There is not always a correct decision for what type of boots you should get, but for pantheon it should either be Plated Steelcaps or Mercury's Treads. Which one you should get depends solely on the enemies. If the enemies have a lot of CC and AP, go for the mercs, or if heavy AD or hypercarry AD who delivers a lot of auto attack damage, go for the plated steelcaps.
Your W is what will help you greatly during ganking. Its a leap and stun on the target champion, which allows you to either get in a couple AA's, or a Q before hes not stunned. It will also give time for your ally to chime in and deal some damage.
Your E has a long cooldown, so you should always use this wisely. When used wisely, it is insanely powerful. It will literally block all damage from where you're facing. From lux ult, karthus ult, veigar ult and more. It will also deal damage, to the enemies who are infront of you, so you should try to go behind the enemy to lure them the other way, so that your top/mid/bot can catch up and finish.
Your R has a long cooldown, but its very good for ganking, especially on an enemy who is pushed top or bot. Your R slows them if they are in the landing zone, they take damage if you land on them. After that, it should be very simple to just finish off with the kill with a W + Q comb
