The interface of the Pantheon.

The Pantheon is a Minigame in Cookie Clicker based on the Temple building. In this minigame, the player "slots" various spirits into 3 worship slots, and each spirit provides a variety of boosts to gameplay depending on which slot it is in.

Overview

The Pantheon has three slots to worship up to three spirits at the same time. The three slots vary in effectiveness whereby the diamond slot produces the most amplified effect and the jade slot the mildest. Because all of the spirits have both positive and negative aspects, the strongest effect available from a given spirit may or may not be the most desirable.

Slotting a spirit costs one Worship swap.[note 1] Switching two slotted spirits directly also uses one Worship swap. Worship swaps accrue over time at a rate dependent on how many you have, to a maximum of 3. Worship swaps can be refilled to the maximum instantly by spending a sugar lump.

Description
Holobore.png Holobore, Spirit of Asceticism +15/10/5% base CpS. If a golden/wrath cookie is clicked, this spirit is unslotted and all worship swaps will be used up.[note 2] "An immortal life spent focusing on the inner self, away from the distractions of material wealth."

Godzamok.png Godzamok, Spirit of Ruin Buff that boosts clicks by +1/0.5/0.25% for every building sold for 10 seconds. Selling buildings triggers the buff boosted by how many buildings were sold.[note 3] "The embodiment of natural disasters. An impenetrable motive drives the devastation caused by this spirit."

Skruuia.png Skruuia, Spirit of Scorn Wrinklers appear 150/100/50% faster and digest 15/10/5% more cookies.[note 4] All golden cookies are wrath cookies with a greater chance of a negative effect.[note 5] "This spirit enjoys poking foul beasts and watching them squirm, but has no love for its own family."

Cyclius, Spirit of Ages

  • Slot Godzamok in diamond after getting the golden cookie buffs (so you can sell buildings). You can first get a small buff to stack up cookies with Godzamok then do the real combo by unslotting and using Dragon Orbs
  • If you are confident that this combo will get you enough for ascend, unslot everything and slot Mokalsium in ruby after getting the buffs (assuming rebuying for another round of Godzamok; otherwise slot Mokalsium in diamond)
  • This allows you to use Dragon Orbs for much quicker combos

  • If worship swaps are scarce you can also just initially not slot anything in ruby

Strategies & Technicalities

  • Unless you are going to ascend very soon, DO NOT use up all three worship swaps at once! Ideally you’d wait 1 hour for each swap to refill, but depending on circumstance one may want to use two worship swaps at once.
  • Swap Rigidel to diamond one hour before lump ripens for any of the setups above.
  • Godzamok disables dragon orbs because the buff is taken into account before dragon orbs tries to activate.
  • Closing or importing will reset Godzamok’s buff strength to 0% (but will preserve the buff and duration).
  • Worship swap regeneration timer progresses while offline.
  • Skruuia makes wrath cookies pool Ruin and Clots 2 extra times. However, it must be active while the wrath cookie is being clicked to have that effect; so you can use it to spawn a wrath cookie outside of the grandmapocalypse and then unslot it to have an essentially normal wrath cookie. For more information on how it exactly changes the golden cookie pool, check here.
  • Holobore unslots when clicking any golden/wrath cookie, natural or not.
  • During large combos, you may swap holobore into the ruby slot after clicking all golden cookies needed for a combo, and mokalsium into diamond after you sold your buildings for godzamok. Cyclius can be substituted for holobore in some situations, see cyclius section above.
  • Instead of slotting spirits in all at the same time, slot them in one by one so you will be able to regenerate worship slots quickly. This rule does not apply if you’re in early game, the fast part of midgame, or doing a combo that requires mokalsium swaps.
  • Assuming that you’re scumming, slotting skruuia in jade is viable so that you have a chance at Elder Frenzy and Click Frenzy before getting the grandmapocalypse unlocked.
  • You may slot Dotjeiss in diamond to try affording an extra building for building achievements.
  • In late-mid game or beyond, use the following slotting patern: Selebrak in Ruby, spend the next 2 swaps on Godzamok in Diamond and Muridal in Jade, depending on progress with seasonal upgrades, and finally Vomitrax diamond when it's time for the final combo. Godzamok may be slotted later because it blocks Dragon Orbs, making seasonal upgrade grinding harder.
  • Vomitrax is used because it makes buffs longer, so it’s harder to run out in the middle of a combo.

Godzamok 101

  • Sell all buildings at once that produce almost no CpS by themselves, and consider how their synergy will affect other buildings to become worth selling.
  • Ideally, Temples shouldn't be sold if planning to swap something in afterwards, and neither should Wizard Towers if stored mana is of concern.
  • If selling is done quickly enough (and consequently ending Godzamok sooner), buildings can be rebought to repeat the cycle in the middle of a Click Frenzy.
  • When re-buying, a general rule of thumb to stop buying a certain building is when the cost is 0.1% or higher of current bank.

Below is the table for conventional building selling practices.

EB = Elder Battalion

Building Sell? (general) Sell? (EB slotted) Sell? (re-buying with EB)
Cursors No No Yes
Grandmas No No Yes
Farms Yes Yes Yes
Mines Yes Yes Yes
Factories Yes Yes Yes

Notes

  1. It is currently not possible to swap spirits in a mobile browser using touchscreen. However it is possible to swap spirits using an external mouse.
  2. Clicking on a reindeer during Christmas Season does not unslot Holobore
  3. Selling more buildings during the buff will not reset the timer, but the multiplier will stack additively even though the bonus information won't change.
  4. To be more precise, the wrinklers drop more cookies, not digest more cookies. Therefore it is fine to use Skruuia just before popping all wrinklers.
  5. The amount of clot and ruin in the random pools are tripled.
  6. Also, this effect is only active when your Cookie Clicker window is opened.
  7. Note that if you have 3 worship swaps and correctly time the best bonus times, you can easily recharge your worship swap before you need to make the next move, and keep the bonus above 9% for at least 67% of the day.
  8. This effect works regardless of the current season, even if there is no season.

Trivia

  • Godzamok's icon, name, and description, are all references to the classic kaiju/Japanese monster, Godzilla.
  • Dotjeiess's name and description are a reference to the programming language JavaScript. JavaScript files usually end in ".js".
  • Mokalsium's image and description refers to a brand of processed cheese, The Laughing Cow (La vache qui rit), whose logo contains itself (mise en abyme). Its name is a pun on cheese, which provides the body with "more calcium."
    • The upgrade "One particularly good-humored cow" for the Fractal Engine, which is about a cow that goes on for infinity, is also a reference to The Laughing Cow, and may also partially be a reference to Mokalsium.
  • Skruuia's name may be meant to sound like the phrase "Screw ya" in reference to the fact that it is the spirit of scorn.
