With Shields of Rock and Stone... - Geb 5.1

Introduction

Welcome to my guide for Geb, God of Earth

My name is Cyberhawk. I am a ranked player who primarily plays conquest. I bounce between Support, Jungle, and Solo.

This is my second season 5 guide, and I intend to update it, so feel free to comment things that should be added/edited.

Pros / Cons

Do not. Take me. For Granite.



Pros:
  • Excellent Peel
  • Extremely mobile for a guardian
  • Outstanding Team-fight ultimate
  • Best cleanse in the game
  • Always relevant, even if just to annoy
  • Counters the crit meta
Cons:
  • Long cooldowns
  • Low clear
  • Only effective in the late game
  • Relies on Blink Rune for initiation
.

Skills

The Earth Moves









Passive - Hard as Rock

Hard as Rock isn’t an ability you ever have to pay attention to. It is always active, and always helping you survive, especially in the current meta with Deathbringer. This lets you tank basics from the enemy hunter much better, so keep that in mind when body blocking.


1 - Roll Out

Roll Out is Geb’s primary form of mobility. It helps you rotate faster, and often will give you a burst of damage and CC when you get there. Try to time using it in rotations so that you enter the lane already CC immune, it makes it much more disruptive. If you miss (common with an ability this hard to turn), immediately cancel out and Shock Wave them. They usually wont expect that.

Note: The top speed of this ability is 754, regardless of movement speed items or effects.
This is leveled last since you are using it for the speed more than the damage.

2 - Shock Wave

Shock Wave is Geb’s main damage ability. Using this at the front of a wave or camp will help your ADC clear, and the point-blank damage isnt bad on gods either. Remember, while the damage reduces with distance, the CC remains the same, and can interrupt channeled abilities like Bludgeon or Ghastly Breath. Level this first for the increased clear and poke.


3 - Stone Shield

Stone Shield is what makes Geb, Geb. The health shield is nice, but the main benefit is the full cleanse of any CC bar Banish. Save people from Ares, Da Ji, and Xing Tian. The one downside is the long cooldown of this ability, and how much spam you will get when you don’t use it to save someone (even if it is on cooldown from when you saved them 8 seconds ago).

4 - Cataclysm

Cataclysm starts off faily weak, just a short duration stun. By late game it will chunk around of the enemies health, stun them for 2 seconds, and combo with Blink Rune for incredible initiation (once every 70 seconds). You want to level this second, as shock wave is a higher priority at low levels, but you want this ready to go by the time you get Blink.


The main things to practice with Geb are:

Watching health bars / CC for Stone Shield saves.
Landing your Roll Out from the right direction.
Hitting multiple targets with Blink Rune + Cataclysm

Items

This Suits Me Well




Blessing



Guardian's Blessing Needs no explanation. Geb is a support, and doesn’t have the damage for Mage’s Blessing. Make sure to focus on getting assists to stack this quickly and get the gold spooling online. This is a starter item for 100% of your Conquest matches as him.



Relics

Team Support


Core Items
Item 1

Travelers Shoes are the main choice on Geb to boost his strength in mobility. Getting to lane faster, getting in range of Stone Shield, and just general rotation speed. These are great on Geb. If you prefer the CDR from Shoes of Focus, they are definitely a viable choice.

Note: Geb needs 20%-30% CDR for his Blink+Ult combo and Stone Shield. If there are enough magical threats that you will need Heartward Amulet, or enough enemy healing that you need Pestilence, pick Shoes of Focus to make up for the CDR lost from Genji's Guard.



Items 2&3
These are going to be your next two items on most supports, and especially Geb. Which item comes first is somewhat personal preference.

Building Gauntlet of Thebes first means you need to play very passively until it is around 40+ stacks, as you have almost no defenses to speak of. However, it should finish stacking right as you build Sovereignty, so at that point you are good to go in most scenarios (Sacrificing early game bulk for mid game bulk).

Building Sovereignty first means you can play more aggressively against physical gods (especially if they have a Hunter + Warrior support). However, it will take you longer to fully stack your Thebes due to when the laning phase ends (Sacrificing mid game bulk for early game bulk). I would not recommend this option if they have a Magical ADC like Freya.



Item 4
Item 4 will be your Magical Protections item, of which there are 3 common choices for Geb. If the enemy team has several sources of magical damage (like an aggressive support or magical ADC), build Heartward Amulet. If they have a lot of healing (usually in the mage and solo laner), build Pestilence. If neither of these are true, and you didn’t build Shoes of Focus, build Genji's Guard.



Final Items

After these 4 items, you have a solid set of utility or situational options for the last two slots. I personally recommend Relic Dagger to get your initiation combo down to a 70 second Cooldown, and Mantle of Discord for the added protections; however, all of these are equally viable, and any given one is best for certain situations.

Conclusion

Geb is tons of fun to play. The first time you land a Roll Out from behind and launch some poor mage into your tower will have you laughing.

I hope this guide was helpful to a few of you. See you on the Battlefield!
