IntroductionHi. Im xHopeless. Nice to meet you. I am a silver (1400) elo top/adc player. When i play panth i usually rape kids faces so hard they rage in chat all game. So i decided to write this guide to show you how i rape kids. here's my stats as him:
Not the best i know but they really don't do me justice. I guess most of my rape comes from normal games but i still go ham in ranked. I just ask you try it out and see how it works for you :D. I also want to apologize for my poor grammar and spelling. Im not a literature major nor do i have any education past high school English.
Here's my Pro's and Con's of playing MANTHEON.
He's Gerard Butler. (metaphorically speaking)
Has a spear that makes the rage pour in.
Puts fear into the enemy jungler and mid's hearts.
Bloccs like everything with his passive
Once you start there's SNOW stopping him (get it?)
Low base health and mana
No sustainability or built in escape
His ult can be hard as FFFF to use properly.
Well that about does it for the intro.I do hope you enjoy this guide and find it useful. gl hf :D
MasteriesI use these masteries because Panth is an ad caster and should be used to deal as much damage as possible. Though the utility his ult and W bring are great if you want to build him bruiser,this guide is for the super OP nerf him please panth. so run 21/9/0 or 21/6/3. (3 points in mana regen)
That's about it for the masteries. I usually dont change them for anything. these seem to work the best for me.
RunesThe runes i use are aimed towards the mid-late game. I sacrifice the early game damage for the armor pen to deal the most damage mid game. Once you complete BT and have brutilizer you are a force to be recconed with. These runes are why.
I run MS quints because panth is gankable. He's not a nidalee,or a lee sin. The only means you have for an escape is either your SS or your W to try and get away after a 1 second stun.
The MS quints also GREATLY help him in chasing. Panth has the highest base MS out of all the champs. Without runes or boots his base MS is 330.Which is faster than everyone except maybe hec? i think hec only has 330 also. So with these quints you start out with 355 MS. which is more than most champs with boots of speed.
The armor and magic resist need no explanation.Survivability is optimal.
No explanation needed. Flash in for the W or Flash away from danger. Ignite OP lolol. The only other summoner's i would even consider is teleport. other than that, run flash ignite.
Passive: Aegis Protection
This passive is very strong. One of the reasons people hate playing against panth. Blocc 2 tower shots and countless abilities. (GP parley,Ez mystic shot, just about every physical damage ability that's single target.)
Q: Spear Shot
This is what makes panth so OP in lane. With the proper mana regen you can spam this and have them rage in no time.
W: Aegis of Zeonia
Your insurance policy. This is to insure you either get away or catch that squirmy bastard. This can also be used to refresh your passive so very useful under towers.
E: Heartseeker Strike
added burst in AOE form... niieeeccceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. I dont really like this ability becauseof the cast time. 3 seconds of watching them get away. The passive on this is amazing though. 100% crit when they are 15% health. which means guaranteed kill. best passive ever.
R: Grand Skyfall
your " Smash out on enemy jungler and mid to put 2/5'ths of the enemy team behind." ability. Try to use this inside brush (im pretty sure you can't see the land zone if the enemy doesnt have vision of the spot you ult. Either they can and the people i've been playing against are 2 stupid to move or you can't see it.) or to sandwich enemies. This can also be used as your "Get out of shit free card". you can bd a tower and when they are closing in on you just ult away. I hate having to use it that way but it's better to ult than to die so.
Match-ups.- You own him hard pre-6. Better zone him out or get some early kills because once he has his ult. you will lose.
- Same as cho. You can beat him up until he has his ult. Save your W for when he uses his Apprehend. If he lands his grab on you then W and run away. Keep range and just harrass him all day with spears. Once you have him to 1/3 to 1/4 health it should be an easy kill.
- He can't kill you and you can only kill him up until his ult. you should be able to zone him very easily. Play aggressive early as almost always with panth.
- Easy lane. just jump on dat ho. Make sure you dont auto when she uses her parry. Just keep to your Q and E and only auto after her W is on CD.
- Triccy lane. you blocc his Q but his sustain is pretty good. A good GP will put more points into his orange to counter your spear. You should win this lane no problem though. Just harass harass harass.
- EzPz lane. I've yet to not get fed off an Irelia. Q all day and wait for the rage.
Will be adding more match ups later.
- Easy lane also.
Final CommentsWell this is my guide so far. Will be adding more match-ups and updates often. Leave a comment and let me know how this guide has helped you or any suggestions or questions you may have. GL to all Mantheon players out there :D
