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.
Chalice of the Oracle
and Chalice of Healing
are the preferred choice of consumables. You wont be able to start with a tier 1 item with both of these, but the advantages are worth it.
is very mana-light, so Potions aren't needed for mana regen, and this guarentees you 750 health on every back, and 6 wards before they become free.
As a support, you should be warding even more often than everyone else (which with most groups will be none). You should easily get 10-20 wards out of this item over the course of the game.
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
, or the tankiness of Reinforced Shoes
they are definitely a viable choice.
Geb needs 20%+ 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
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).
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 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
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 on a shorter 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.
