Champion Matchups

Introduction

Underestimated

I believe that what they say about Pantheon falling off or that he is not a strong fighter is complete bull. He has an OP passive, annoying spear harass, passive refresh, one of the greatest ganking potential, and hardest to trade with. If you follow this build as well has how to utilize these techniques I am about to show to you, then maybe you would find this guide very helpful.

Masteries

Why 9/18/3?


Well, for starters, I don't believe in an all offensive tree for pantheon, especially since without his shield he is squishy. I found it more effective if you invested more into your defensive tree since you want to be able to survive team fights rather than just dying. Pantheon can really mess up high priority targets or catch out of position opponents easily.

Offensive Tree [9]

I had more minion damage and less attack speed because he is more of a bursty brusier. Attack speed doesn't work very well for Pantheon.

Defensive Tree [18]

Self explanatory, you don't want to die. You need the extra damage reduction, defensive buffs and tenacity, and health to compliment your overall utility. You don't want to be a hinderence to your team by dying to quickly.

Utility Tree [3]

Mana regen, for those oh so annoying harass spears. That mana regen helps a lot especially with your spear harass.

Runes

Y U NO GLASS CANNON?


Marks


I chose 6 Armor pen and 3 flat AD marks because if your opponent isn't retarded, then he/she would buy Cloth 5. So to over come this problem armor pen runes were put in to help with that much needed damage.

The rest are self explanatory. Standard Shmandard. Although you could sub the Glyphs for mana regen if you just want to win lane.

Summoner Spells



Explanation:

Y u no ghost? Well, flash is one of the best for Pantheon, Flash --> Stun --> E --> Ignite --> Q --> Dead

Also as I stated before, Pantheon is a burst hero, unlike Olaf or Irelia etc.

Can be viable, but only if you're feeling tricky. Other than that, your ulti is your teleport.

Skills

Passive: Aegis Protection

Explanation:

OP, enough said. The reason why Darius can't trade with you well, the reason why GP is useless against you, why Riven's passive is doo doo against you, and champ that relies on their auto attack is useless.



Q: Spear Shot

Explanation:


The reason why people will hate you. Spear them every chance you get, especially when they are trying to get CS. Gain brush control, walk out THEN spear, then walk back in to the brush to break vision. You can also use this to help you CS, but use it sparingly


W: Aegis of Zeonia

Explanation:


Your passive refresh. ONLY USE IF ESCAPING, SECURING KILLS OR TRADING. When your jungler is gonna gank, you engage with this. Lock your target down to have the maximize the CC for the target.

And when trading make sure to utilize your first passive proc BEFORE using this skill to refresh it. Utilize the free shield refresh to maximize your defensive capabilities


E: Heartseeker Strike

Explanation:


This combo'd with amazing and if you have even better.
Don't use this to farm creeps early game, wait till mid-late game to use this as a farming tool or if you need to push lane for a mid lane ulti gank.

R: Grand Skyfall

Explanation:

YOU WILL GANK MID AND YOU WILL BE LOVED.

Also, make sure you place it on their main escape route. You don't want them to spam laugh as they walk away from your ulti.



Item Builds

Glass Cannon or Tanky?


Being fed

You're strong, but not God. Get CC'd enough and you're a dead spartan. Be aware of your map and the damage build I have provided will make you the most terrifying hero.

Tanky

If you haven't been doing so well in lane, your fall back plan is to be the tanky brusier (Regardless you're going to be beefy either way). Your job is to peel people off your carry, since you have that stun, utilize it.



It seems to be popular in many builds and it isn't understated, its an amazing item for any champion and a must have for brusiers.



Makes your E useful. CD reduction = More spears



You're healthy, your opponents can't get away because your spear applies on hit.

Early Game

They will be privileged to die at your feet


Spears. Spears all day. Just farm and spear, don't fully commit to an engagement unless you know you can kill them. At level 3-4, with enough spear harass, you should have brought them to about half HP and if you have ignite, that is a kill for you. Other than that, do not engage fights, let them come to you to proc your passive.

Overextending?


You shouldn't be unless you have it warded with your flash up. But in the even of being ganked from behind, stun ---> Flash(or walk if they don't have exhaust/slow/stun).

Getting Tower dived?


You're gonna win if you select who you stun correctly. Always stun the one tanking the tower and burst him down as fast as possible. Then dance around your tower and use your spear/stun. Never use heart seeker strike UNLESS you have stun up.

Tower diving them?


Best early tower diver hero. Only dive if they are half health/jungler is elsewhere, the tower is nothing.

<u>Rotation for Tower diving:</u>
Q --> W --> E --> Ignite --> Q --> *Sunglasses*

Got your Ulti?




If they are pushing your tower, use it to get back to lane quicker.

If you pushed them to their tower, gank mid. When you ult in, spam the shit out of your stun on the mid. You will insta hop to them even before you hit the ground. Then proceed with your Q --> E --> Q rotation

Mid Game

Pantheon's Prime


Show them the art of war. Gank all the lanes with your ulti and make the plays. Just make sure you warn your team of your intentions to ulti else you'd ult to your death.

Don't engage without your team. You can split push lanes with your ult up, but make sure you are not across the world (i.e. you are at top, they are at bot).

<u>Skirmishes:</u>
You are the carry killer. Kill the carry.

Late Game

Stick together and either peel or assassinate their carry. Easymode activate.

Team Fights

On the offensive


If you don't have a gap closing team, you may be in trouble if your team does not engage with you. With the build I provided, the towers should not be a problem, but again, pantheon relies on a good team. Be smart and see how your teammates like to fight. They have to have balls.

On the Defensive


Peel. Just focus on peeling. Your ulti is only to save your teammates that are way out of position. But when playing defensive in a team fight, peel. Unless you are their damage, then kill their carry.

Final Comments

I hope that you found this guide very useful, I am still experimenting with different builds such as switching for . But other than that, please rate and comment on what you think about this build and feed back would be greatly appreciated.
