Tips Against Pantheon in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

KamiKZ says “Can be one of the more difficult matchups due to his early kill potential and shield passive. His passive will block both your auto attack and your passive (unseen threat) and since he can reset his passive in the middle of a fight it may be difficult to duel him. Be careful of his gank presence after he reaches 6 (and let your team know when he´s lvl 6 too) as he can appear anywhere on the map and snowball from there. One of the better ways to deal with him is to purchase Challenging Smite and Evolve Q so you won´t have to rely on auto attacks to DPS him.”
Suseri says “Similar to Jax he can avoid alot of your damage but also cancel your W. He outtrades you in lane so you should be playing safe and let him push to get help from your jungler. On the bright side his ult does not help him so after some items you start winning.”

Ellesmere says “A good Pantheon will keep very good control of the map. His ult makes him extremely mobile and his kit is all about ganking between his hard engage and his cc. Your job this game will be less about farming and more about counterganking and establishing your control over the map before he does.”

KamiKZ says “This match up is Pantheon favored. I recommend starting on the opposite side of the map and not fight Pantheon by yourself, since his passive can block your auto attacks and he has point and click stun which makes Pantheon hard to kite as Graves.”

nZk01 says “VERY overrated champion, if he doesnt snowball once again champ is useless as fuck, doesnt scale that well and has quite the horrible early clear, ganks are obvious as well and if u wanna fight him just set a box on you when he wants to jump on you, otherwise just Q away.”

EzVeryReal says “Pantheon completely destroys you. his early game presence means you can't do anything or he'll chunk half your hp. If you ever look to ult, he'll just W you. I tend to ban him.”

EvoNinja7 says “Pantheon has high damage output and very good poke. He can engage on you really easily and he can deflect any incoming attacks with his shield and do damage. He like a stronger version of Braum that does a TON of damage. Also Be careful when you're in lane with low health, He can ult into the lane and kill you.”

pykeultimateguide says “He's similar to Blitzcrank where his constant engage play-style can hurt you a lot. Especially when in this lane you want to play passively, and scale up so you can infinite heal your team in teamfights.”

Camelorry says “Don't get hit by his w and try to put yourself behind him when he e's so you can damage him. Use your w to block either his passive empowered q's if you can. ”

Terrific says “Pantheon support is super annoying because it does so much damage for no reason. Time your E with his W and you can punish him afterwards. He most likely will E but that's alright because he runs out of mana really quickly. Do not underestimate his entire combo because it will kill you.”

Tips Against Pantheon in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yeager says “One of the worst match ups. Use fleet footwork + resolve tree + Doran's shield start. On your first base you can get a doran's sword as well for some extra sustain and HP to survive his burst. Keep an eye on his passive stacks. A fully empowered Q is going to nuke you, so wait for him to use it before you walk up to farm or try to time his poke with your W shield. You can use the second part of your E OR your ultimate to cancel out his stun to nullify his engages. If it's a good pantheon, the only thing you can do is to use the full defensive page, try to farm up and wait for jungle ganks. You will outscale him really hard, so do your best at not giving him any kills in the lane and spam ping your teammates once he hits level 6. When you go trades, make sure he wasted his passive first. If you're lucky, you will sometimes be able to cancel out his W with your Q3(knock up). If you do that, there's a chance you can win the trade. Save E to dodge his empowered Q as well when you're going for trades. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Roamers Matchup. Go either Doran's or Corrupting depending on how aggressive you want to play. You can kill him but don't waste your entire combo when he has his E up as you probably won'd deal damage into his immunity. Try to be the first roamer or try to at least follow him when he dives bot. Push constantly because he has no push power. Time Warp Tonic + Biscuits.”

LunarVortex says “Very annoying early due to his high damage output. Be aware that he might just start perma-roaming bot if he cannot kill you past 6. Buy an early Seeker's Armguard if necessary.”

Avucado says “Start E and go for a trade lvl 1, it should be a free stun since he's melee. Only take short trades and stay away when he can use empowered W. All short combos will work on him but walk away if he E's. His Q has an incredibly low CD and does a ton of damage considering. He can match roams, ping if he walks out lane and one of your lanes are shoved. Wait for his shield before going for an exe. If you position your exe correctly, you can exe Panth while his shield is up. Steelcaps arn't bad if they have a lot of other AD here.”

Katawina52 says “Go resolve second here with Bone Plating (for his all in). Start Dshield or Cloth and rush Seekers. I would avoid fighting him early unless you're in 2v2 scenario with a health advantage since its so easy to get dove by Pantheon and there's no way you win any trades early game especially if he has full stacks. Once you have one or two items this game should be way easier since you're way stronger in teamfights, but there's a reason hes on the hardest, not inting a pantheon is the hard part since it's easy gank setup + his E makes it easy to dive you so be careful. (I would dodge if they have elise/taliyah/karthus jgl cuz then you can't stack armor) Remember that surviving early is key with matchups like Trist/Panth/Lucian that's why not stacking armor can be really annoying.”

I Am Goliath says “Pantheon is really only a problem in the early lane, start Doran's shield or corruption potion if you aren't comfortable in this matchup, once you get to level 9+ you simply just win 1v1 so hard vs this champion, I like to save my E for when he shields in this matchup if I can so he wastes his shield. You can also try to move behind him when he shields to still get damage off.”

ForgottenProject says “The Main Reason he was broken beyond reason was his Old Passive which no longer exists. The other reason he's still so high up is because his kit is still Oppressive in lane. [1]Get Armor in your runes [2]Play Around his Mana, if he doesn't have enough to All-in you, you can All-in him. [3]Parry his W, especially if it's empowered. [4]Ping your team the moment he leaves the lane and keep scaling.”

PH45 says “Be careful about his empowered W as that can hurt quite a bit when he combos in his other abilities. When he uses his E, Q behind him to be able to deal damage to him. You still outscale him so you should be fine if you don't int the lane. Early armor helps a decent bit.”
Drake6401 says “By a Tiamat early to prevent him from ult roaming. Keep an eye on his progress towards an empowered ability. Baiting and dodging an empowered Q from him puts you in a favorable position. Be very careful not to stun against his shield. This is the main reason this matchup is not in the Tiny spot. You both have outplay potential but it favors Renekton.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP IN HIS FAVOUR. DON’T FIGHT HIM EARLY. DON’T TAKE TOO MUCH FREE POKE. STEELCAPS ARE GOOD. CONQUEROR AND AFTERSHOCK ARE GOOD. CANCEL HIS STUN WITH YOUR E. WALK AROUND HIS SHIELD BLOCK WITH GHOST. PING WHEN HE IS MISSING. Pantheon can potentially be a difficult matchup if he is the better player. You want to not eat too many free Qs from him, as that is how he wins the lane, by poking you down and then all inning you. A smart Pantheon will almost never use his Ranged Q. He will just tap it as that gives the same damage but is better in every single way. It might be a good idea to play safe early on, at least until level 3 because you can start properly retaliating against him. D shield along with Second wind are a MUST. You beat him in all ins but properly counterplaying his E and landing your Qs are crucial to doing so. Try to make sure you stay healthy in lane and not take too much damage. In terms of rune choice, Conqeuror and Aftershock both work depending on your playstyle. In terms of items, Steelcaps are a good pick up and are mandatory at times. If thats not enough, pick up a Chain Vest as well. Try to make sure you stack up some health though. Ping like crazy when he is out of lane as he is very good at ganking others due to his ultimate. This will be bad for you too because once he gets fed off of your teammates, he might be able to beat you. A good trick to know is to use your E when he tries to stun you. If you time it right, you will cancel the stun and even if you screw it up, he will be stunned to. If he uses his shield to block damage, just walk around him and start hitting him. This should be easy to do with ghost. If he keeps it, try not to ult when he is using block damage.”
Olaf Only says “Easy if you survive until lvl 6. Go for poke before 6 and try lvl 1 all-in. Pantheon can roam very efficient so try to counter him with your Teleport or take Turret.”

MythicMike says “He has no escape, but is pretty powerfull early on. Watch out for his empowered W and try to poke at a safe distance. He wins the all in early, but if you chunk him down he has no escape once you all in.”

lol Wero says “if i had to be honest for this match up, AD Neeko isn't worth versus the pantheon match up, AP Neeko does way better into this match up. The trading is very poor for AD Neeko. But if you want to give it a try, build early lifesteal and try to poke him down with your Shapesplitter (W) empowered autos. Avoid his Shield Vault (E).”

Anoying bro5 says “Keep an eye on his empowering bar as his Q and stun will do a lot of damage. He is pretty predictable when using his stun or Q since the bar displays this to you. If you land riposte you win after lvl 3. You are also stronger lvl 6 so you can all in him. His W shield denies you vitals so move to his back side.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Use (Q) on him when he goes for his (W) stun on you, this will counter the 3 swift CONQ (AA), avoid bursting him when his shield is up as he will mitigate everything, so hold of until it is over and position yourself to deal max damage. His (Q) goes on a 10-5 second cooldown based on how long the ability was held. Use this knowledge to know when it is safe to go in to poke him. You can side step both the thrust/throw of his (Q), however, it will take some time to get used to it. If you are about to get hit by his (R) under his tower, it's better to run through his jungle from his side of the lane. You won't out run his ultimate in time, so go the other way. ”
