Guide to Countering Pantheon as Azir

Tips for Playing as Azir against Pantheon

Be a bird!

Think of Emperor's Divide as a defensive ability first and foremost. Use it when the enemy engages on you or your allies. Remember that your team can walk through the soldiers summoned by Emperor's Divide and use this to your advantage when enemy melee champions engage on you.

In the lane, try to position your soldiers between the enemy's minions and the enemy champion. This way you can use them both to last hit and to project threat onto your lane opponent.

Be careful about putting down both of the soldiers stored by Arise! Unless you're going all-in, always have a soldier in your back pocket if you need to escape over a wall or if you misposition your other soldier and need damage now.

Advice to Win Against Pantheon

Pantheon's Aegis Assault makes him invulnerable from the front. Get behind him or wait it out.

Be careful near Pantheon if your health is low - a thrown Comet Spear executes low health enemies.

Grand Starfall gives several seconds of warning before Pantheon arrives. Use this time to get out of the way or to form a plan to deal with him.
