I'm seeing some discussion in here about the timing of this with this skin and just wanted to address that point. These changes came about while we were working on the skin and noticed the inconsistency between the effect and the visuals on Pantheon, so we took the opportunity to update the scripting on his ultimate to match them up. It is 100% our bad that we failed to document these with the patch notes, but the intent here was to make sure that pantheon's abilities looked right for the Dragon Slayer skin.

The other concern that I'm seeing is that this is seriously impacting both his feel and performance in the game.

It's about making what you see on your screen match what's really happening in-game. If Kass R were off-sync, you'd want the bug fixed, too.

If hurts his performance, then they can always tune it from there.
And this ^ pretty much sums up our feelings on the subject. It wasn't our intent to significantly nerf Pantheon or make him feel significantly clunkier, so we're watching the situation on live and will adjust accordingly if Pantheon players are suffering due to this change.

While I and other members of the community understand this, the concern is that if it does indeed feel bad and Panth is suffering as a result that Riot will drag its feet on this.

This is because the first bugfix is actually a pretty heavy nerf to most Pantheon players who know how to stun while dropping; it allows enemy champions a larger grace period to escape you while dropping in on them and renders even well aimed ultimates useless against most champions in the League of Gapclosers.

We're still waiting for Skarner to get more buffs from his rework so saying you're going to buff Pantheon if he needs it doesn't count for much.
