Yet another guide to Meepo, the Geomancer

Introduction to Meepo, the Geomancer

This is a guide from Rune Naundrup Dahl (Dahl)



Bio


"If you ask me, life is all about who you know and what you can find. When you live up in the Riftshadow Ruins, just finding food can be tough. So you need to cut corners, you need to scrounge, you need to know your strengths. Some of the beasts up there can kill you, so you need a way to trap the weak and duck the strong. On the upside, the ruins have history, and history is worth a lot to some people. There used to be a palace there, where they had all these dark rituals. Bad stuff. If you survived the ceremony, they would shatter a crystal and split your soul into pieces. They made great art though! Sculptures and such. Let me tell you: sometimes you stumble onto some of those old carvings. Take a pack full of those to town and sell them, then get yourself food for a few weeks. If luck is really on your side, you might find a Riftshadow crystal. Get it appraised and start asking around. Someone always knows some crazy fool looking for this kind of thing. If all else fails, sell it to a Magus the next time one's in town. They love that stuff. Still, whatever you do, be careful handling those crystals. You do not want one to go off on you. It really hurts."

Item's explained

This section is where we discuss the items.

Tranquil Boots


He doesn't have much Health early game, this is why we compensate for health loss. Activate when your 170 health points short


Tranquil Boots Disemble


Whenever you don't need health, disemble Tranquil Boots and pick up in right order to make Ring Of Basilius to gain faster mana


Vladmir's Offering


Does 16 % lifesteal to all melee units, plus it buffes the damage with 15%.
Attack speed on XXX is equal to 0,9 attacks's per second

Based on level 16. (without items except scepter)
With one Meepo = 72 * 1,12 * 0,16 * 0,9 * 1 = 11,61 hp/s
With five Meepo = 72 * 1,12 * 0,16 * 0,9 * 5 = 58,06 hp/s


Boots Of Travel


Gives extra mobility since Meepo can have, up to five Meepoes each with a Boots Of Travel able to teleport around the map with assistance of the Poof spell


Blink Dagger


Gives an extra advantage in ganking enemies and escape possibilities


Aghanim's Scepter


Summons an extra clone, but most importantly gives 100% attribute scaling (get this as soon as possible, if you're getting farmed well)


Assault Cuirass


Makes every Meepo attack faster, and gives damage reduction to incoming damage (this is a win more item)


Heart Of Tarrasque


Huge health boost, 1060 points along with 2% of maximum health HP/s (this is a win more item)

Summary

I hope this guide have enlighten you with the hero Meepo, with the pros and cons. Furthermore I hope to have explained how to play him and what items to pick.

Pick Meepo if:

  • If you know how to micro
  • If you're against squishy heroes, and they don't have escape abilities
  • If you are not having delay over 50 ms

Don't pick him if:

  • If you are against any of the heroes on my "Worst Enemy List" (recommendation)
  • If you are having a hard time microing
  • If you are having delay over 50 ms

PS: If there is anyone who has english fluent in writen, and wanna help out with my grammer, please contact me, would be appreciated allot
