Pantheon is a fighter. He is very strong in the early game being able to trade and fight vs most top lane champions. As you get into the late game, Pantheon falls off in terms of damage and becomes more of a crowd control champion that helps the team survive. One thing to note is to always keep an eye on your Mortal Will to see how many stacks you have. After 5 stacks, your next basic ability will be enhanced which means they get bonuses.
Pantheon can also be played in the jungle. He has great ganking tools with Shield Vault being a point and tap stun and you can use his ultimate, Grand Starfall, from really far away to surprise the enemies. The build is pretty much the same with slight changes to boots upgrade and runes.
Pantheon uses a mixture of both damage and tank items that work well with his kit. Youmuu's Ghostblade is a great core item for Pantheon. It's a very cheap item that gives Pantheon a lot of great stats so he can win early fights and snowball his lead. Black Cleaver is a great item for Pantheon. You can combo Empowered Shield Vault, auto-attack, and your Comet Spear to get the full 5 stacks of armor reduction on the enemy.
For runes, we have the following:
Pantheon is a fighter, so he wants to get in the enemy's face and attack constantly. This and his combos allow him to get stacks pretty fast, enabling him to deal more damage to the enemies and get a lot of physical vamp when fully stacked.
Brutal gives Pantheon a lot more early game power and gives him the opportunity to trade and fight more effectively.
When enemy champions are low on health, Pantheon can deal bonus damage. Pantheon already has a lot of damage potential and will always look to jump onto enemy carries, so dealing extra damage can help Pantheon kill them.
Alacrity gives Pantheon Attack Speed, which will provide him with a lot of power in the early game to get an advantage with his insane burst damage.
Pantheon always starts his engagement with Shield Vault to stun an enemy champion. With this ability, Pantheon will gain Armor Penetration with Sudden Impact to help him kill that target.
As Pantheon, you want to be really aggressive early game. You have one of the best 1 vs 1 potential against any other top lane champion. Auto-attack minions to stack your Mortal Will and once you have full stacks, you can use your Shield Vault to jump in and get 3 free auto attacks off and combo that with your Comet Spear. Make sure when fighting against the enemy you use your Aegis Assault shield to block all incoming damage. It can be a lifesaver!
Pantheon really struggles when it gets too late game because he doesn't do the most damage and can be really easy to play against. The best thing you can do at this point is group up with your team using Grand Skyfall at distance to surprise the enemy. When in a team fight your main goal is to get on top of the enemy backline! Use your Shield Vault to lock down one of the enemy's carries so your team can follow up and help kill them.
Overall Pantheon is a super fun champion to play that can join a team fight from miles away. If you want to play a champion that has insane early game damage that you can get an advantage from and then use your semi-global ultimate to help the team then Pantheon is the go-to champion for you.
