iXoLeX: After 6 years of Meepo Guide
By Zoex Hunter
For most people, Meepo, the Geomancer is a useless Hero because he is easy to die during Early Game. For them who never used Meepo before thinks he is too complicated to be MASTER. This guide should provide you a lot of knowledge about Meepo and also some Hero Build and hopefully help you MASTER Meepo, the Geomancer.
We are Moving!
There is a new identical guide creating right now. It is called 'Meepo's Library'. This Guide is just like a library, accumulated with Knowledge. Everything you need to know about Meepo can be found in the library. This library will help you understand Meepo's Abilities, Items, Hero Builds, Combos, Friends, Enemies and Secrets. These knowledges could help you MASTER Meepo, the Geomancer.

Don't worry, this guide still will be updated from time to time until the New Guide is release. The guide will not be release soon but I hope you guys could rate 'Thumb Up' for that guide when it is release. So that this Wonderful knowledge can be share with others who are still lost in the mist.

Released Date: 5 January 2015
Meepo looks hard but actually not. You have to control 5 Meeps after you get Aghanim's Scepter so people thinks they are hard to use. In addition, they are easy to die during Early Game, make them the least favourited Hero. Meepo is a Carry which is a late-game hero that guaranteed VICTORY. Do you know that Meepo could be Great Support and also a Great Assassin? It is mostly based on Items Build and Farming Strategy that suit the match. Apart from that is how you choose to control your Meepo. In this guide, I had shared a lot of knownledge about Meepo. I also created Hero Build containing Item Build and Ability Build that I recommended for a specific Role. It is Free to Subscribe, so Check them out, Subscribe and Share with your friends!

Bio of Meepo
"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."

Introduction about Meepo
  • Variety of Roles
  • Fast Movement Speed
  • High Damage Spell
  • Higher Magical Resistance
  • A Great Support
  • A Great Pusher (Destroy Tower & Eliminate Creeps easily)
  • A Great Farmer (Gain Exp and Gold easily)

  • Very Soft during Early Game
  • Everybody's Target
  • Vulnerable to AoE Stun
  • Vulnerable to Cleave
Tosses a net at the target point, pinning down all enemy units. Earthbind prevents invisibility, blink, and interrupts channel. Watch Earthbind Demo

- This is a bad news for Witch Doctor and Pugna. Witch Doctor and Pugna basically kills their target using their channeling ability. With Meepo's Earthbind, their ability is useless.
- Except blinks, escaping ablitites such as Leap can be cast although the Hero are Earthbinded.

Drawing mystical energies from the earth, a Meepo can teleport to another Meepo or itself after channeling for 1.5 seconds, dealing damage in both the departure and arrival locations. Watch Poof Demo

- This ability is good for escaping, killing and instant backup.
- 2x Damage is dealt if Departure and Arrival location are the same(in radius).
> Min Dmg from 1 Meepo - 5 Meepo = 80-400, Max Dmg=140-700
~ When enemies gank, escaping is the best choice but make sure you have a distance from the enemies and they can't cancel your casting.

Meepo enchants his weapon to deal damage per second, as well as slow the movement speed of the attacked unit. Geostrikes from multiple Meepos stack. Watch Geostrike Demo

- When chasing an enemy, hitting it is the best chasing method for Meepo. Once you have Aghanim's Scepter, you will have total 5 Meepo which make it harder for the enemy is escape.
> Max Dmg=140 per second after hit. Max Slow=100%
~ Geostrike is a great abilities to upgrade when you only have 2 Meepo. 2 Meepo is not enough to continuously Bind your target to the ground and escaping is easy for them. During late game, Eye of Skadi can be obtain for more MS & AS slow.

Divided We Stand
Meepo summons an imperfect, semi-autonomous duplicate of himself, which can gain gold and experience as he does and shares his experience and abilities. However, the clones cannot wield any items but the boots that Meepo himself wears. If any of the clones die, they all die. Increases the speed at which you respawn. Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter. Watch Divided We Stand Demo
- Get a Aghanim's Scepter will give you 1 extra Meepo and all your other Meepo same attributes as the main Meepo. This will increases other Meepo's Health Regrenation, Mana Regrenation, Armor, Max Health and Mana
~ Once you have 2/More Meepo, you can spilt them out to obtain more Exp but make sure you watch them every 3/5 seconds. You can also "Follow" your trustful teammates who able to look after your Meeps and share them your Units.

- Did you know that Meepo has more Magical Resistance compare to other Heroes? Normal Heroes only has 25% Magical Resistance(Spell Resistance) but this innate passive ability increases Meepo's base Magical Resistance 25% to 35%.
Items: Starting Items
- Just a simple item which is the recipe of Headdress and Buckler.
~ Iron Brance provide +1 All attributes, so it is useful for Health, Armor and Mana during Early Game.

- A great Early Farming item especially for Mid-Laner or Jungler.
- Greatly increases your last hit chance.

- Regeneration, the most important Early Game items for Meepo. (Obtain at least 1 of these)
~ Useful items if against Ranged / Nuker because they usually target Meepo during Early Game.
Items: Boots & Scepter
- Tranquil Boots is better than other health regrenation item you ever seen. It provide +12 health regrenation and +30 Extra Movespeed.
> Compare to Ring of Regen, Ring of Regen only provide +5 Regrenation but needs 875 Gold to buy it. Tranquil Boots only need 975 Gold, 100 Gold more but provide even more features.
~ Get Tranquil Boots when you have 2 Meepo, so that your Meeps can heal.

- Boots of Travel is extremely useful for Meepo. After obtain Boots of Travel, you can farm even faster. You can farm like Furion and Tinker but even faster.
> 60seconds cooldown / 5 Meepo = 15 seconds.
~ If you able to obtain Boots of Travel before Tranquil Boots. I suggest get Boots of Travel instead of Tranquil Boots. It help you farm faster and you can escape easily.

- Power Treads provide +8 selected attributes and +AS but it does not help much in farming, escaping nor chasing.
~ This is my least favourite item for Meepo, because you will have to count on your teammate to obtain Victory. Teammate failed to dominate the Enemies during early game, then it is a Lose Game. Or the enemies done a lot of mistakes. (X)L^_^l)

- Aghanim's Scepter is a must-obtain item for Meepo. It provide +1 Meepo and share Main Meepo's attributes and armor with all other Meepo, making them all the same.
~ You can aim for Aghanim's Scepter after you obtain Boots of Travel or maybe not based on situation.
Items: Active Resistance
- Headdress should be obtain when you have Meeps. It provide +3 Reg to other Meepo.
> 1x Ring of Regen = 350 Gold,+2 Reg. 1x Headdress Recipe = 200 Gold,+1 Reg. It is a Gain.

~ Buckler is not a very good item yet because it can't protect Meepo from most harm. But you still have to obtain it if you want to get to Mekansm which is very useful for all your Alliance.

- Hood of Defiance is a balance item, it provide what you paid for.
> 2x Ring of Regen = 700 Gold,+4 Reg. 1x Ring of Health= 875 Gold, +5 Reg. Hood of Defiance provide +8 Reg but it should be +9 Reg. The Logic come to the Magic Resistance.
> 1x Cloak = 550 Gold,+15% MR. The +1 Reg has been convert into +15% MR. So, Hood of Defiance provide +30% MR.

- This is my favourite item. It always save me from hell by heals 250HP and +2 Armor for escape. The 900 Gold Recipe for Mekansm is for...
> +1 Bonus HP Regen(BHR). Headdress = 3BHR, Mekansm = 4BHR.
> Provide ability to Heals 250HP.
> Convert 2 items into 1.

- Once this item is obtain, Zeus is no longer a treat. The 900 Gold Recipe for Pipe of Insight is similar to Mekansm but it provide ability to block Magic Damage(MDmg) instead of Physical Damage(PDmg).
~ If you are against Nuker especially Lion/Lina/Zeus, this item is Recommended. Your teammates also can survive their spells.
Items: Core Resistance
- Vladmir's Offering is a item against Physical attacks. Bearing a Vladmir's Offering provide you and your Meeps the ability to FACE TO FACE with your target. It also give 15% BONUS DAMAGE.

- Heart of Tarrasque is the best health regeneration ever. Unfortunately, the regeneration only provide for Main Meepo.
~ I like to buy this item after I obtained Aghanim's Scepter. It provide +40 Str for my Meeps and they all become a Tanker after I obtained Heart of Tarrasque.

- Assault Cuirass is a Tank item and also an Attack item. It provide attack speed which is suitable to use with Manta Style or Scythe of Vyse and other Disabler.
- It also provide +5 Armor Auro for Alliances including Meeps
~ This item should not bind with Ethereal Blade because it prevent Physical Attacks making your +AS useless.

- Shiva's Guard is a Tank item and also an Chase item. It has an active ability to slow down enemies in around the bearer. Not very recommended but is still a useful piece during Team Gank.
- Useful against High Attack Speed Heroes. Example: Phantom Assasin, Sniper, Drow Ranger.
(Ursa's 2nd skill, Overpower unable to be slowed)

Sometimes people say my items are funny but I don't think so. Most them ask Why I buy Eye of Skadi? Let me tell you why...
After obtain Aghanim's Scepter, I will buy Eye of Skadi to replace Mekansm or maybe not.
- Eye of Skadi provide 250 health and mana for the Main Meepo.
- Eye of Skadi provide 25 attributes which all of your Meepo also obtain.
- Eye of Skadi also provide the Main Meepo with MS and AS slow which is very useful against Runner and Basic Hits hero like Ursa.
> 25 attributes = 25 damage + basic + items = 100-150 damage per hit.
> 100-150 damage x 5 Meepo = 500-750 damage + 5x Geostrike(7-28) = 535-890 damage per second / 570-1030 damage every 2 seconds.

Conclusion: Eye of Skadi provide great attributes which is very helpful for Meeps. If you have Eye of Skadi, your max damage dealt is 890-1030 every 1/2 seconds because Geostrike's duration is 2 seconds and it deal damage every second(but you hit the target every second, refreshing the Geostrike again and again making it 1 second or maybe less than 1 second if you buy +AS item). Add on MS and AS slow, no people dare to come close to Meepo alone, even the most tank Hero such as Treant Protector won't come near you.
Items: Situational Items
- Scythe of Vyse are both useful against Physical and Magical Heroes. Act as a disabler.
- It remove all target's armor and make them vulnerable to both Physical and Magical attacks
~ Scythe of Vyse, Ethereal Blade and Orchid Malevolence are best to use together.

- Once you are a succesful Disabler, Butterfly is your next useful item. It provide +AS, +AGI and +DMG. Unfortunely, the +35% Evasion only provide for the Main Meepo.

~ I often buy Manta Style when I uncounted SINGLE TARGET HEROES. Bad news for them, as they only have 2 choice to make before I elimate them. Either stay and fight to death or run and fail to run.

- Playing Meepo's 2nd ability to kills? Ethereal Blade make it easier by providing +40% Bonus Magic Damage(BMDmg).
> Meepo's 2nd ability(80-140Dmg) x 5 Meepo = 400-700Dmg
> 400-700Dmg + 40% BMDmg = 560-980Dmg
~ Scythe of Vyse, Ethereal Blade and Orchid Malevolence are best to use together.

- Orchid is the alternative item of Butterfly, they can replace each other. Orchid is useful against Magic, meanwhile Butterfly is useful against Physical. Orchid ability to silent and amplifies the damage received by the target at the end of the duration. It means once you silent the target, use Poof to dealt as much damage as possible. After Poof, if target will get another 30% BMDmg of the damage dealt.
> 400-700Dmg + 30% BMDmg = 520-910Dmg
~ Scythe of Vyse, Ethereal Blade and Orchid Malevolence are best to use together.

- Heaven's Halberd is the alternative item of Scythe of Vyse. If enemies always hunting but you do not have enough money to buy Scythe of Vyse, Heaven's Halberd is your early defence. After you dominate them, then switch to Scythe of Vyse(Optional).
~ Scythe of Vyse is better than Heaven's Halberd. It take away all target's armor and make the target vulnerable to both Physical and Magical attacks
Items: Extras
~ Dagger is my favourite Extra. It help me chase down enemy and get into battle but it does not provide any stats
> Pros: Good at Chasing, Perfect for Starting a Team Gank and Get into Battle.
> Cons: Does not provide any other things such as Attributes / BHR / HP,MANA Regen / Armor.

- Shadow Blade is also a great item too. It is a perfect initiator item for new learner who are not used to Meepo yet. It also can a Basic Attacks' Extras item.
> Pros: Does not require QuickCast, Prevent Finger Twist.
> Cons: Difficult to use against moving target.
Items: Rejected
Starting Items
- Buying Stout Shield make you durable but you will have to sell Tango and Iron Branch to obtain it.
~ Not a Gain.

- Phase Boots is good for chasing but using Phase Boots' active ability will tired your finger out.
~ Besides, Meepo already have Earthbind and Geostrike to chase down the target or start a Team Gank easily.

- Arcane Boots is totally rejected because Other Meepo can't activate their Arcane Boots' ability.
- Arcane Boots only provide mana and no attributes are provided which is extremely rejected.
~ Who ever buy Arcane Boots for Meepo confirm did not read through this guide yet.

Early Items
- Poor Man's Shield basically just convert 3 items into 1 item because it provide the same as the recipes does. Recipe: 2x Slippers of Agility & 1x Stout Shield.
- Obtaining this item make Meepo durable during a Team Fight but without regeneration Meepo unable to stay in Lane to gain Exp and Gold.

- It provide a lot of damage. Total +18 damage for the Main Meepo and NONE for Other Meepos because during Early Game you don't obtained Aghanim's Scepter yet.
~ Ring of Aquila looks like a great item of Meepo. I have to agree with that, it provide Aura Mana Regen & Aura Bonus Armor for other Meepos but without Health Regen. It could be in Nuker Hero Build.

- This item is totally rejected.
> 400Heal x 8 Seconds = 3200Heal
~ You have 2/3 Meepos during Early Game but Urn of Shadow only heal one. With 3 Meepos to feed, how you going to feed them all? Besides, Meepos' HP is does not more than 1000 during Early Game.
- Their HP reach 1000 when they are Lvl 15.
- The damage dealt to the target is high.
> 150Dmg X 8 Seconds = 1200Dmg
~ There is Pros and Cons obtaining this item but Regeneration is key to success for Meepo during Early Game. If Meepo unable to farm during Early Game... it is a Defeat Game.
Hero Build: Attacks (Assist)
Attacks are very basic. You use it to kills creeps, heroes and damage towers. This build is perfect for Meepo because Meepo's 3rd ability, Geostrike. It slows and damage the target over 2 seconds. This is my least favorite build, it does not help much during early game because Meepo's damage are too low and there is not enough of Meepos to slow the enemy down. This build is not recommended for Middle Lane but it is good to team with stunner.
> Damage: 7 / 14 / 21 / 28
> Slow: 5% / 10% / 15% / 20%
> Duration: 2 seconds - Refresh if the target get hit again by the same Meepo.
> Geostrike stack with multiple Meepos.
> Stack Damage: 7-28 / 14-56 / 21-84 / 28-112 / 35-140
> Stack Slow: 5-20% / 10-40% / 15-60% / 20-80% / 25-100%

Tanker is the guy who takes all the damage. So that teammates with low health but high damage could eliminate the enemies. Meepo can become a tanker because of its ultimate and its Item Build.

Hero Build: Nuker (Initiator-Assault)
Nuker build is a very powerful build. It suit for Experience Player who already used to Meepo's Combos. Not recommanded for beginner but you can learn to use this build using Shadow Blade or skip to Dagger instantly if you can. Nuker kills its target using High Damage Spells. Meepo's High Damage Spell is his 2nd ability, Poof.

Hero Build: Mid Laner (Traveller)
Meepo also can be play as a Mid Laner. As long as you know how you can do it.
This Hero Build keep Meepo in Lane to earn Exp & Gold by using Meepo's 2nd ability, Poof. Once Lvl 3, there will be 2 Meepo available. You can send one back to base and switches them when Lane's Meepo are badly hurt. Beside, enemies' attacks is useless against this build.
This does not means you can keep farming at Mid Lane. You have to travel the map to assist your Alliances. Keeping them save and preventing enemies ganks. How does it works? If Top and Btm Lane's enemies can't dominate your Alliances. They will have a hard time defending & Mid Lane enemy can't leave the Lane because you have another Meepo pushing and denying at the same time.

Coming Soon... (Still finding a Screen Recorder to Record the Video with Audio and System Audio)

Friends or Foes?
Friends or Foes? Both of them are going to decide how you play your Meepo. It means your play style is going to be different to Co-Op with them. Not all friends are friends because every player has different play style. Even when they are your Best Friends, they could betray you too, so don't 100% counting on them. Below are the list of the Top 5 Best Friends and some Worst Foes. All Reasons why they are your Best Friends or Worst Enemies are included. (BETA)

~ This problem get worse after Axe obtain Dagger.

- The best way of survive Axe's Berserker's Call & Counter Helix is spam 'STOP' Action button. Do not attack Axe!
- To successfully overcome Axe's Counter Helix, focus on Tanks first then only focus on Attacks / Nuke
- When it is over, Axe is going to run / activate Blademail and fight. Do not fear when Axe activate Blademail, still remember 40 Secrets of Meepo? 6. Meepo do not fear Blademail.
- Example: 1 Meepo deal 50 and get 10 return. 5 Meepo deal 250 but only get 10 return each. This is how it works!
