Champion Sneak Peek: Pantheon
Sincejoined the League of Legends, there has been a decided dearth of champions with extremely large . Luckily, is coming to prevent this extremely important demographic from becoming marginalized. Here's a glimpse at what we used to inspire Pantheon.
A One Man Army
Let's talk about the next VGU we have planned after Mordekaiser. It's none other than the Man, the Myth, the Legend, Pantheon! After Mordekaiser, Pantheon is the last of the pizza-feet champions, which is to say he hasn't visually held up very well over time. We will be building his visuals from the ground up, while also making him feel more unique to the world of Runeterra. We'll also be expanding on his current lore, as we tell the story of gods and humans and how one man fought back against the gods.
For Pantheon's gameplay, we’re looking to modernize his current kit rather than completely re-imagine it. We plan on preserving the aggressive, reliable nature of his play pattern while also adding a deeper set of options and decisions for him to play around with. We also want to really sell the hoplite fantasy by making Pantheon's shield feel more integrated into his kit.
