Pantheon counter tips
Laning Against Pantheon
When playing as a ranged champion, try to stay as far back as possible while using your range advantage to harass him. Staying at max distance will make it difficult for him to jump on you with his W.
After he hits level 6, be careful when moving back to lane if he’s not already shown. He may use his Ultimate R to get behind you and all-in you as soon as you get back to lane.
At level 1, be careful of Pantheon's early pressure as he can often cheese a kill and force you to blow Summoner Spells or health potions.
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 very strong in the early game. Keep this in mind and be prepared for him to play aggressive and go for kills.
Once Pantheon is level 6, his kill pressure doesn’t increase much in lane, but his map and roam potential does thanks to his Ultimate R. As soon as he goes missing, make sure you communicate with your team as he may look to roam.
When Pantheon completes his first item, his kill pressure only intensifies. You’ll need to respect his all-in potential when he has his first item.
