“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.”
“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.
Get Armor in your runes
Play Around his Mana, if he doesn't have enough to All-in you, you can All-in him.
Parry his W, especially if it's empowered.
Ping your team the moment he leaves the lane and keep scaling.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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).”
“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.”
“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.
