I bought Brolaf, now I have the IP to buy xin or panth, the word on the street in that panth was nerfed into oblivion but I have seen people still do really good with him, and Xin's nerf was pretty bad too.

Thoughts comments suggestions?

Heart-seeker Strike was nerfed into oblivion. Spear shot still hits like a small third-world country applied to the forehead.

Overall: Pantheon is still nasty early/mid game.

Xin's fun. Kinda annoying to use at times, but fun.

I haven't played Xin, but Panth is so much fun IMO. Jump in, burst like crazy. Your passive allows you to towerdive too. I usually get a really high amount of kills and a pretty high amount of deaths.

Xin is better right now. Pantheon cannot counter armor stacking teams whatsoever.

Pantheon is unversatile with a would be fun if he didn't suck style of gameplay. Xin can go a variety of builds and be **** good at them. He can even play an off-tank using the CC from E and Q and the purely base damage from R.

Personally I think Pantheon is cooler, but you're less likely to get angry at the game with Xin.

Xin is so much better than Pantheon. Pantheon requires the other team to be dumb whereas Xin can actually sway a team fight to your advantage even against good opponents.

People QQ'd and Riot over nerfed pantheon (lolool heartseeker does less damage then an autoattack at level1 now lululutrololol) , so Xin is better.

I play both, they're both playable, Xin's probably a little better, simply because he scales better to the end game but Pantheon can still be a monster early game if he gets rollin'.

Pretty much this ^ because pantheon is kinda ****ty at escaping

And this ^ because apparently heart seeker strike doesn't apply the 40% armor pen from last whisper......
