Pantheon counter tips
Laning Against Pantheon
Once Pantheon hits level 6, communicate with your team whenever Pantheon recalls or leaves lane as he may use his Ultimate R to roam and help another lane. It’s not uncommon for Pantheon to recall and run bot with his Ultimate R.
Take care in the early game as Pantheon will try to skirmish frequently and go for kills. Keep this in mind and be prepared to sacrifice some CS for XP if you’re weak in the early game.
Avoid trading with Pantheon when his Passive has lots of stacks as he will deal lots of damage in a trade. The best time to fight him is when he has no stacks, and an ability on cooldown.
Strategy VS Pantheon
Watch out for a potential Flash engage by Pantheon. In team fights, don’t stand too far forward in case he tries to make a play.
Ward your flanks! Pantheon may try to attack you from the side and get on to your carries when his Ultimate R is on cooldown.
Good times to fight is when Pantheon is split pushing. Forcing a fight when he is on the opposite side of the map could be a good idea as it will take him some time to get into the fight even with his Ultimate R.
Pantheon Power Spikes
Pantheon is an early to mid game champion and is therefore very strong from levels 1 to 6 and can influence other lanes too when he gets his R.
If Pantheon gets 1 or 2 kills, he can finish Youmuu's Ghostblade and his other core items faster. Pay attention to what active items he has and try to play around them.
Be careful after the laning phase, as Pantheon will try to kill you with Grand Starfall R and force a 5 vs 4.
