Frontline vs Backline

Usually, if there are a lot of range on the other team, I will be backline, and if theres an almost-even split, I'll be a frontline "Baiter" with either def or offensive gear.
Backline, for me, means 40% CDR / 1-2 Auras, usually Sov and/or Heartwood, build. Otherwise, if there is a lot of Melee fighters, either magi or phys, I will go offensive if they don't have a lot of CC, or defensive if they have a lot of either CC or "escape, jump, movement" abilities.
Frontline, for me, just means I'm either a baiter, or a hitter. Hitter is a pure offensive build, usually either 30% CDR with penetration and power building from minions, or a 100% power build, such as the mana build.

When I am a baiter, I will be the initiator, and will usually pop my shield on (3), roll in (1), wave them (2), then auto attack, hoping that by that point, my teammates will be in range and already attacking. With the mana build, at this point, I usually have 3 and 1 already ready from cooldown, or have my Ult for escape and further stuns.
If there is a fight that I have a lot of sustainment issues, I will instead get Tainted steel -> Tainted Amulet, and make sure I hit as many Gods as I can, and keep it up on them at all times.

End game gameplay

Usually, by the 15 or 18 minute-marker, for conquest, and/or the 7-10 minute marker for all others except for arena, I would be working on my last piece of gear, the last stacks for either of the pieces I have (minion-based stacks), or be working on the stronger potion buffs. If I died a lot (more than 6) I get the guardian one, but if I have more than 4 kills as defensive, or more than 10 kills as offensive, I'll get the Power potion one. (the ones that last through death)

For team stuff, I will always be the baiter, even as backline, but use my roll to get out, and taunt them to get close just to use 2 then 4 (Ult).
As backline, I'll save my 3 for if I'm almost dead, but otherwise for teammates only.
As frontline, my 3 I'll use if I'm running away, dying, or rooted/cc'd and can still use it.

The Relics

I get those specific relic because, for the Bracer, it last a LONG time, and anyone on the team can use it. that power or movement speed can save a lot of effort, and not many players use that at all, I've noticed. I use it constantly for myself, and it's almost unexpected to see it used by anyone but myself, at least in my own matches...I've never seen anyone else get it on either team.
I use Horrific for enemies that "escape with 1% hp" or "hes so fast" kind of scenarios.
I use the sunder if no one else has it on my team, or if the team is tanky, but otherwise, default to thorns. As a baiter, I like getting them down with thorns first so my team can get them, even if they get me first.

please rate and comment, im a newb still

I made THIS guide so that people can see, visually, what some of my builds look like, instead of trying to explain them over in-game texts/messages, for one reason, and so that I can get commentary on the builds I use for Geb from the public to see where/how wrong I am in my thoughts and playstyle. That being said, I do NOT seek "Meta" to win, just something that "works, and is fun to play." I know this probably won't be a 10.0, or probably even a 6.0, but I want to see where it would stand vs meta-builds, and what people would say about the builds I use.

p.s. : I understand there will inevitably be those that comment with toxic comments just for toxicity; those will be disregarded in favor of those that are what I call "real/actual criticism." I like criticism, because it isnt said just to hate, but to fix, repair, edit, etc. so that I can still have fun playing, but also not lose/die as much.

You are a fan of going Gebbo mode I see

I kinda guess, but I don't know what "Gebbo mode" is, so I really cant say...
If that means spamming knock-ups and shields, then yes. If that means doing more damage than a normal tank/support, I tried, but cant get there it seems....

Yeah, Geb mostly isn't there to deal a lot of damage, partly due to his poor scaling. He can deal damage, but it's mostly a side-effect of his ult, when you can consistently hit multiple enemies at the start of a fight.

Gebbo mode probably means going damage Geb just because you can or it's fun. People sometimes like to play gods in roles they're not normally suited for, just to change things up.

I wasnt kidding about commenting, let me know where I'm wrong, especially if you down-voted. I really do want your criticism so that I can improve

Soooo...hi WoW3Lf. In terms of looking at your builds, the first thought that comes to mind is "troll." As you're requesting feedback however, I'm inclined to think that it's exactly as you say, that you're new and unsure what a standard, functional build for Geb would be.

In that respect, the first thing I'll do is point you Amoral's builds, which are overall the most common build types for Geb, who is almost strictly played as a tanky support. https://www.smitefire.com/smite/guide/geb-s8-conquest-support-25355

Geb is not relied on for damage dealing. He's a guardian with low overall scaling, which means he doesn't get as much added damage for building magical power items. One of his abilities ( Stone Shield) doesn't deal damage at all, and is intended mainly to help your teammates out of sticky situations.

His passive drastically reduces the effects of critical damage, which can help his main function (tank, absorbing damage).

As such, you typically build protection and health items, with later portions of your build providing utility or counter function.

To give you a visual idea of how he is typically played and built, you're welcome to review these videos or search for more on your own:




That said, in very unique situations you can go for a damage build...I wouldn't suggest in a team game, but SamDaDude uses him in a duel match here:



In terms of your builds, besides the questionable item choices, one thing I'll point out is that build order of items is very important, and not building too much of any one type of item is also important. Your lifesteal stacking build is going to get shut down pretty hard when enemies build anti-heal. You'd typically only get one, maybe 2 lifesteal items at most.

For damage builds, flat penetration is preferred early, while % pen is more helpful later (though some will build % pen items early just because the items provide other function, like Charon's Coin).

In all, there are just a ton of things that are not suggested in your builds. You're welcome to read my items guide if you don't mind a bit of reading. Checking out the other resources I provided earlier will also be helpful. If you have more specific questions after this, you're welcome to ask.

Thank you; and you were right on the second point....I am new, and really am still learning. Ive done okay in the past, but still don't really know how to build Geb.
Thanks again for the points/advice, and the guides. I saw the "top build" for Geb in the list, but then saw that there was comments saying it wasnt all that correct.
thanks again, seriously.
