YOU DO NOT NEED A 15 PAGE GUIDE TO UNDERSTAND
I'm not teaching you how to play Smite, I'm telling you what works well for me- shortly and simply.
I've been playing Geb since he came out. At this point in time, 01-26-2014, I am rank 3 mastery with him and am currently at over 75% win percentage (25-8). I realize this isn't a conventional "guide" but this is here to show you in a nutshell what works very well for me- even with his recent nerf.
I start with Winged Wand for the health, cd reduction and the passive is great for escape. You should buy level 1 Meditation and two health potions. On my first return, I follow this up with the always necessary boots- either or work very well. This is where things start to become situational... Usually, I have returned to base after a initiate on the other team and have less than 500 gold- thus I buy Magi's Blessing because it is cheap. If you have enough gold you'll want to decided whether you feel your Physical/Magical reductions are sufficient at this time. Normally I feel too squishy and choose , but is equally as good in my opinion. Finally, and again based on your enemies damage type, pick between for magic power/magic resist or for the great physical reduction passive and magic power/physical reduction stats.
A brief overview on his combat and initiations:
Buy starting items, initiate the Mana Jungle buff for your team by utilizing all your abilities: roll into the pack, turn around, shockwave the pack, shield yourself and move to Damage Buff followed by speed buff. Using your abilities will help your team clear quickly and save you from taking damage- use Meditation and one of your health potions and you should be back to fighting shape.
I honestly just roll around as much as possible and continually pop the other teams more squishy players as often as possible and let my team initiate around my attacks. Geb does amazing Area of Effect damage once you have your ultimate and the fact he has a slow/knockback: and two stuns: / allows you to hold an entire team in one spot for a solid few seconds- which is more than enough time for your DPS to do some major damage.
Keeping yourself very aware of your allies health and position as you fight is essential and it will take some getting used to between deciding to shield yourself or one of your allies. Geb's ability makes escape incredibly easy with this build- pop on and use Roll Out away from your attackers and say goodbye.
