Are you still alive ?

Yo dude I love your guide and all (been maining Panth for like 2 years now, wonderful experience thanks to your guide), but I just wanted to ask you. Is the Matchups section up to date yet?
Swuft (39) | September 23, 2019 3:06pm
Hey there! Glad my guide has been of use to you. Unfortunately, the Matchups sections is not currently updated. That will take the longest to update, as it is something that can only be learned from experience. Thanks for the note, and good luck on the Rift!

Using Comet Spear on an enemy champion will draw minion aggro, so be careful!

This is no longer true by the way :P
Swuft (39) | August 23, 2019 6:35am
Hey there! You’re absolutely correct. I apologize, the guide will be a bit of a mess for a while while I update everything. I am currently on vacation, but once I get back to a computer I will do a thorough update of the entire guide. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, and good luck on the Rift!

what abount aery ?
Swuft (39) | August 18, 2019 12:54pm
Hello! Aery is less great on Pantheon now, as his poke is less guaranteed and less often. It's not that it wouldn't work, I just think that Aftershock, Conqueror, Electrocute (or even Press the Attack now, it looks like) will be always be better.

Of course, this is just my view. If you find that it works for you, go for it! Thanks for commenting, and good luck on the Rift!

What would the 'Sustain-EON' (onhit-sustain) runes be used for which champions?
Swuft (39) | August 12, 2019 3:27pm
Hey there! That build is highly experimental, but I believe it will be the best build going forward for Pantheon after his rework. Currently, it's best used when facing an opponent with low DPS, some sustain, are melee, or have poke. A few examples of this could be Cho'gath, Tahm Kench, Malphite, Fiora. The idea is to use your Q to stack Conqueror, then walk up and start autoing the enemy. You won't be able to blow up enemy carries like a Lethality build allows you to do, but it will be very hard for anyone to 1v1 you in a sidelane. Hope this helps, and good luck on the Rift!
Meian.Meekins | August 13, 2019 3:58am
Awesome, thanks for the insight. One more thing I want to ask, you don't have Mordekaiser in your list of matchups and I want to know how to face that chamption using Pantheon.

I just wanted to say that I was looking to try out Pantheon and found your guide! It is so in depth and amazing of all the information it carries. It even made me laugh a few times in the mindset section xD. Also saw that you respond to people who comment on here and thought that was just absolutely amazing. Thank you so much for this guide and for being an amazing person :)
Swuft (39) | July 31, 2019 5:40pm
Hey there! Glad you like the guide :D My view on guides, especially lengthy ones, is that content brings people in but humor and images keep them engaged. I'm happy to hear that you got a laugh or two out of this haha. Got a lot of work ahead of me with the rework coming out, but hopefully the guide will get even better after I update it! Anyways, thanks for the note, and good luck on the Rift!

Hey, I don't play Pantheon myself, but every time I see this guide it just blows my mind. The combination of beautiful visuals and in-depth information is just insane. I think I can safely say this guide is an inspiration for every guide writer. At least for me it is.

Any thoughts on Pantheon jungle? He heavily relies on ganking, but since the scuttle crab spawn being delayed, I rarely see him in the jungle.

Keep up the amazing work! +1
Swuft (39) | July 28, 2019 7:28am
Hey there! That's very kind of you to say :) I don't have a ton of experience with Pantheon jungle, especially not this season, so I might not be the best person to answer this question. However, the ones I have seen try to cheese gank immobile lanes after getting a buff or two. If you can kill mid or top right before the scuttle spawns, you can take them for free because your lane can come help you while the enemy jungler's lane can't. I think Panth jungle works in specific situations (low mobility enemies), but is not extremely strong currently as AP junglers seem to be making a comeback.

Hope this answers your question, and thanks again for dropping a note! Good luck on the Rift!
Silverman43 (51) | July 28, 2019 7:40am
Thanks for your answer! It confirmed what I thought. I hope the Pantheon rework gives him the ability to farm the jungle so he can also be played as a normal jungler, not as a cheesy pick.

I used to play Pantheon so many years ago, and i wanted to play it again, your guide is really complete, it helped me alot to understand all the matchups, but i still can't imagine myself playing without Electrocute xD Great guide btw :D
Swuft (39) | July 5, 2019 6:58pm
Hey there! Glad you liked the guide! I prefer Electrocute myself, too :P Good luck on the Rift!
CrowKYS | June 26, 2019 3:26am
Great guide, as i have played alot of pantheon myself, i would reccomend to also try these runes if you have some mana problems: sumommon aery, with manaflow band, absolute focus, gathering storm, then take precision with triumph and coup de grace. The summon aery also help with real early damage, since you dont have to use 3 spells to activate it. manaflow will increase you mana every time you get early kills, it will also help you stay in lane if you need to. then absolute focus, when you poke enemies in the early game it helps with damage, and then gathering storm will make your lategame not that hard, since you got more damage (combine with black cleaver and the armor is easy to get past). Triumph and coup de grace is self explanatory.
I like these runes more since they help at the start, and are not useless mid to late game. I would reccomend to try them and see if you like it, but i understand it is not for everyone though
Swuft (39) | June 27, 2019 5:43pm
Hey there! Glad you liked my guide :D I used to have Aery as the seccond recommended runepage, but eventually I decided that Aftershock was better. My main reasoning is that Aery is not so great outside of lane; in teamfights, you're really only getting one or two procs off of it. Aftershock lets you engage in teamfights and survive much longer, while still giving the benefits of a Sorcery secondary tree (Manaflow, 10% CDR etc).

Thanks for leaving a comment, and good luck on the Rift!
CrowKYS | July 30, 2019 1:38pm
aery is good for splitpushing as well, and if your team need help you always (hopefully) got your ult ready. As you will most likely only have to do a 1v1 during your push
ShockStrikes (9) | May 17, 2019 6:18pm
Wow, what an amazing guide. You have my upvote. The creative layout and abundance of detail really stand out. Especially the format of the Pros and Cons. Not planning to play Pantheon any time soon, but this guide was really nice to read.
Swuft (39) | May 17, 2019 7:13pm
Hey there! Thanks for dropping a note! I'm glad you like the guide, even if Mr. Mantheon doesn't appeal to you as a champion! Good luck on the Rift!
Speed TRacer (2) | February 14, 2019 2:00pm
Started playing toplane about a month ago, transitioned from Jungler/Support and this guide helped a lot with Pantheon but also the safe zones and warding around toplane. Huge thanks, great indepth guide, good luck this season!
Swuft (39) | February 14, 2019 5:20pm
Hello! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment; I'm glad my guide was able to help you learn a bit about toplane and Pantheon. Best of luck climbing, and good luck on the Rift!
Rako007 (14) | November 29, 2018 2:35pm
