Meepo, the Geomancer, is a melee agility hero who is notorious for being one of the hardest carries in the game to play effectively due to his heavy reliance on micromanagement. Meepo's defining ultimate, Divided We Stand, allows Meepo to create up to 3 additional clones of himself, (4 with Aghanim's Scepter), each of which has its own mana and hit points, as well as individual cooldowns on Meepo's spells. The clones cannot use any items besides the boots that the main Meepo himself wears, but each clone can gain experience and gold additively with the original Meepo, allowing him to gain levels and gold extremely fast. This means that a well-played Meepo can gain experience faster than any other hero, capable of reaching maximum level extremely early into the game and overpowering his unsuspecting opponents; however, Meepo's greatest strength is also his greatest weakness, as the death of any Meepo, including the clones, spells death for all Meepos.

Individually, each Meepo is very weak, but by combining their strength and spells Meepo can overwhelm opponents with their nukes and disables. A single cast of Earthbind is little more than an inconvenience, but multiple Earthbinds chained together can allow a Meepo army to keep an enemy permanently rooted to the ground. Poof is a short-ranged area nuke by itself, but combined with the clones allows any Meepo to globally teleport to any other Meepo, and deal increasing amounts of damage when stacked together on the same target. Geostrike deals small damage over time and little slow by itself, but combining the efforts of all clones can paralyze a foe and deal heavy magical damage over time. With this skill set, Meepo can be everywhere on the map at once, and can group up on an unsuspecting victim in a moment's notice. Meepo redefines the power of numbers, and managed properly can overwhelm the enemy as a one-man army.

Bio[edit]

Meepo minimap icon.png Meepo, the Geomancer
Play "All these fancy knights and scary monsters. Pff! What do they got that I ain't got? Nothing, that's what."
"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."

Affects
Self / Enemies
Damage
Magical
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.
Cast Animation: 1.5+0
Cast Range: Global
Damage Radius: 375

Mana: 80
Sometimes breaking one of the Riftshadow Crystals can be just the trick for getting yourself out of a bind. Or your other self.

Notes:

  • Poof can only target own Meepos and illusions.
  • When targeting ground, the Meepo closest to the target point is chosen upon cast (which can be the same Meepo who casts it).
  • Poof deals its damage twice, once at the cast location and once at the destination point.
  • This is how much damage Poof can deal (before reductions) when a certain number of Meepos casts it at the same spot:
    • 1 Meepo: 140/180/220/260 (Talent 200/240/280/320)
    • 2 Meepos: 280/360/440/520 (Talent 400/480/560/640)
    • 3 Meepos: 420/540/660/780 (Talent 600/720/840/960)
    • 4 Meepos: 560/720/880/1040 (Talent 800/960/1120/1280)
    • 5 Meepos: 700/900/1100/1300 (Talent 1000/1200/1400/1600)


Ransack

Ability
Passive
Affects
Enemies
Damage
Pure
Steals health from the enemy with each strike and heals all other Meepos for that amount.
Hero Health Steal: 6/10/14/18
Creep Health Steal: 4/6/8/10
Cannot be used by illusions. Illusions neither can steal health, nor get healed by Meepo or a clone attacking.

Notes:

  • Deals pure damage to enemies on attack. The damage is applied before the attack damage.
  • Heals all other Meepos by a set amount. The actual damage deal to the target does not matter.
  • Does not work against Lua error: Error: No database table exists named "units"..Roshan icon.png Roshan or illusions.


Divided We Stand
Not disabled by Break.
R
D
Divided We Stand icon.png
Ability
Passive
Meepo summons an imperfect, semi-autonomous duplicate of himself, which can gain gold and experience as he does and shares his experience, attributes 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.
Number of Meepo Clones: 1/2/3 (Upgradable by Aghanim's Scepter. 2/3/4)
Clone Experience Gain: 40%
Aghanim's upgrade: Adds an extra Meepo.
Do I know you?

Notes:

  • Unlike most other ultimates, Divided We Stand can be leveled up at level 3/10/18 instead of 6/12/18.
  • Upon leveling, the Meepo clones always spawn with full health and mana next to Meepo prime, even when leveling from a clone.
  • Meepo and his clones are represented by an icon with health and mana bars for each on the top left corner of the screen.
    • When a Meepo is selected, its icon becomes brighter. When a Meepo takes damage, its icon blinks red.
  • Clones benefit from talents bonuses, and from any attributes granted by items or buffs.
    • However, they do not benefit from any other item bonuses (damage, health, armor, etc.).
    • This also means the attribute bonus from Guardian Greaves icon.png Guardian Greaves and Power Treads icon.png Power Treads, as well as the +7 strength talent, are applied twice on Meepo clones.
  • Meepo clones only gain 40% of all experience, even when alone.
    • This means when alone, 60% of experience gets lost. When 1 ally is nearby, the clone gets 20%, the ally gets 80%, with 2 allies, the clone gets 13.33%, the allies get 86.67% each.
    • Meepo prime still gets 100% experience like other heroes do. Only the clones have this penalty.
  • When Meepo prime loses attributes (to e.g. Decay or Intelligence Steal), the clones' attributes adapt.
    • However, Meepo clones themselves are still subject to attribute loss and the other Meepos do not adapt to a clone losing attributes.
  • Once purchased, Meepo cannot drop or sell his Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter.
    • Aghanim's Scepter upgrade of Divided We Stand does not require it to be leveled and always gives the extra Meepo.
    • Acquiring Aghanim's Scepter while dead causes the new clone to die instantly and respawn together with Meepo.


Talents[edit]

-5s Poof Cooldown25+400 Health
10% Lifesteal20-4s Earthbind Cooldown
+30 Poof Damage1515% Evasion
+10 Damage10+7 Strength attribute symbol.png Strength
Notes:
  • This attack damage talent is added as raw attack damage, so it does not benefit illusions, and is not affected by most percentage-based damage increasing or reducing effects.
  • The evasion talent stacks multiplicatively with other sources of evasion.
  • The lifesteal talent stacks additively with other sources of lifesteal.
  • The health talent increases maximum health capacity, and keeps the current health percentage.

Recommended items[edit]

Starting items:

  • Tango icon.png Tango provides basic health sustain, allowing Meepo to weather harass damage from his lane opponents.
  • Healing Salve icon.png Healing Salve restores large amount of health in the laning stage.
  • Iron Branch icon.png Iron Branch gives Meepo cheap attributes; you can use it with Tango to get more healing.
  • Quelling Blade icon.png Quelling Blade grants bonus damage against creeps for easy last hits.
  • Stout Shield icon.png Stout Shield blocks some damage from physical attacks
  • Slippers of Agility icon.png Slippers of Agility gives cheap agility and build into Wraith Band later on.

Early game:

  • Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed increase Meepo mobility in the early game to navigate to lanes and jungle.
  • Wraith Band icon.png Wraith Band gives all Meepos attributes, especially agility, at a cheap price.
  • Bracer icon.png Bracer offers cheap strength and other attributes to share with Meepo clones.
  • Bottle (Full) icon.png Bottle gives sustain and stores runes for opportune moments. You can always Poof to fountain and back to refill Bottle.
  • Town Portal Scroll icon.png Town Portal Scroll, combined with Poof, gives Meepo strong global presence since he can spread his clones all around the map and Poof them to each other as needed.

Mid game:

  • Power Treads icon.png Power Treads provide attack damage and attributes to all Meepos, increasing Meepo's damage output and allowing him to attribute switch as needed to give his clones more health, mana, or damage. Because Meepo clones benefit fully from bonus attributes on Meepo prime, they effectively get twice the attribute boost from Power Treads (from both the shared attributes and the Power Treads they carry).
  • Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade gives all Meepos a good amount of bonus agility but not Manabreak. Use the active Inhibit with Earthbind to make netting a lot easier to execute.
  • Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger is a very strong initiation item that greatly augments Meepo's mobility and lethality. By combining the Blink with a Poof from all clones, Meepo can offensively cast Poof in order to deal nuke damage and jump himself and his clones on top of an enemy.

Late game:

  • Boots of Travel 1 icon.png Boots of Travel is extremely powerful on Meepo, given his already formidable global mobility with Poof. As each clone has its own cooldown, Meepo can position any clone anywhere there are friendly buildings or creeps, and use Poof to bring them all to that location, further decreasing his turnaround time.
  • Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade gives 40 agility and 10 strength to each clone, greatly increasing their damage output and granting them more health. The active can be used to save a clone from being focused down by physical attacks, or on an enemy to slow them while weakening their magic resistance to deal more damage with Poof.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse provides all-around attributes that benefit all Meepos, and the active gives Meepo an instant hard-disable to use against targets who are too slippery to catch with Earthbind.

Situational items:

  • Dragon Lance icon.png Dragon Lance gives cost-effective strength and agility so Meepo and clones can tank up as well as deal more damage.
  • Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi gives Meepo bonus attributes, giving each clone more damage, attack speed, health, and mana.
  • Heart of Tarrasque icon.png Heart of Tarrasque, when purchased on Meepo, it greatly increases the survivability of all of Meepo's clones, as all of them will benefit from the item's strength attribute. This makes each clone much more resilient, allowing Meepo to survive for much longer in fights.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter maximizes the power of Divided We Stand by giving Meepo an extra clone and giving +10 attributes to all Meepos.
  • Manta Style icon.png Manta Style grants more attributes, especially agility, to all Meepos, increasing their damage output and survivability. The created illusions will benefit from Meepo's attributes, further increasing damage output. Most importantly however, the illusions can be used as decoys to trick the enemy into focusing them down and wasting abilities and time; and the illusions are valid targets for Poof, meaning that they can be used as scouts to safely locate enemies to gank and kill.

Gameplay[edit]

Roles: Carry Carry Escape Escape Nuker Nuker Disabler Disabler Initiator Initiator Pusher Pusher
Complexity: ★★★
Playstyle: A scavenger's life is not easy. It was one thing to Earthbind a potential meal, but quite another to handle the Riftshadow crystals that, upon breaking, could splinter one's soul. They are valuable, though. And that's what matters most to Meepo. Seldom seen alone, Meepo commands up to five separate bodies, completing multiple tasks in record time. Tired clones are sent home to rest, and once refreshed, quickly rejoins his brethren with a simple Poof. Draining foes and Ransacking fortresses, a swarm of angry, shovel-wielding Meepos can overwhelm even the mightiest of heroes.
