Very standard support start, for a very standard support.
Tier 1 Thebes is also an option but the extra movement speed comes in clutch more often than the extra HP5 and health.
This is a great all-around build when you're not super confident with counter-building. Covers all your protection bases, gives full CDR with either cooldown boots (my preferred boot), Pridwen synergizes great with Cataclysm, Relic Dagger is just a great, cheap pickup, mantle just to make you extra unkillable, and Oni's because you're going to be all up in the other team's **** nonstop after 20 mins so the percent mitigations go a long way.
Depending on yours and the enemy's team comp, you may want to switch out a couple items from the core build to shut down a particularly annoying bakasura on the other team, or help a large-gonads hunter on your team really pop off. Spirit robe is great if you're getting locked down with lots of CC and it synergizes with Oni's well. I tend to shy away from spectral armor on Geb, only because it does the same thing as his passive anyway so usually you're better off getting a midgardian or nemean in its place.
Consider these items when you're well ahead of the enemy team and can sacrifice some tankiness to absolutely clap some squishies into dust with a rollout into point-blank shockwave.
90% of the time you'll want shell out of base, and blink at level 12. With some comps, however, you'll get more value out of sprint or ankh so keep those in mind. If you're feeling EXTRA ballsy you can get belt of frenzy to help burn objectives lightning fast, but you are sacrificing some survivability from your team by doing that.
Some will crucify me for this, but I believe rollout is your best level 1 ability option. Maximum damage on the first wave if you time it right, plus almost guaranteed ghost minion secure so you can get shockwave ASAP and lose nothing.
Obviously leveling your ult whenever you can, I put 3 points into shockwave for clear capability, and then max out the stone shield for maximum peel.
Tap each threat level to view Geb’s threats
Geb is underrated. With an 18% pick/ban rate in ranked when it should really be 100%. Rollout is a great rotation tool in a meta where supports are secondary junglers after the 5 minute mark. Shockwave is an AoE knockup that does dummy-thick damage. His ult brings incredible teamfight CC especially when combined with blink. And not to mention Stone Shield is the single best non-ultimate support ability in the game as far as I'm concerned. In this TED talk I'm going to show you why you should insta-lock this god when you get stuck in the support role.
The reason Geb isn't valued these days is because he "doesn't have early pressure". And with a sloppy, dumbass ADC with you, that may be true. BUT. If you're laning with someone you know can hold their own, and has decent early clear, you can be an absolute menace - and I'm going to show you how.
STEP 1: Make sure you get the purple debuff so the minions ignore you. Save your abilities for the wave.
STEP 2: Get Rollout as your first ability. After you clear the purple camp start rollout right beside the alpha harpy as you walk to lane to ensure you get, not only the ghost minion, but most times you're positioned between the other team and the wave, zoning them off of getting immediate pressure. Since you have the purple debuff, feel free to slap the other support or adc so they have to pay attention to you and they stay off your carry.
STEP 3: You'll hit level 2 after first wave if all goes according to plan. If your carry knows how to position you should be able to shockwave immediately, setting up your adc for some killer poke. BOOM. You have early pressure as Geb. Job done.
I'll be blunt. Your jungle clear is garbage. That isn't going to change for the whole game. Once you rotate out of lane you'll be sticking with your mid-laner and jungler and mooching XP off of them so you stay relevant. Always look for opportunities to set up kills for your carries in your rollout and shockwave. The most terrifying thing for a mid laner is having a Geb with fully charged rollout gank from their own jungle, baja-blasting them into your awaiting team. If the enemy support is there to peel for them you can keep them zoned and unable to help with your ult > shockwave combo. Always keep an eye on
Late game Geb is a force to be reckoned with. If you built right you should be near unkillable, and you can use this fact to be downright annoying. During pheonix sieges your best play is to be really aggressive and stepping up and taking pheonix aggro, catching the enemy team off guard. If you can, a blink ult under the enemy pheonix is devastating if your team can follow up properly.
Your ideal combo is Blink > Ult > Shockwave > shield either yourself or your damage dealer > rollout when you get low to disengage.
When your abilities are down you still get a lot of value stepping up and frontlining simply because your model is so big you serve as an excellent damage sponge and body blocker. Plus, if you built full CDR (which you should) your shield is on a 10sec cooldown, and nothing tilts the enemy team more than losing out on almost-kills because of a ******* geb shield.
Geb is the ultimate support character. Once you master the mechanics of rollout you can set up crazy plays in the early-mid game, and late game you're just an unkillable hog.
