Meepo, the Geomancer, is a melee agility hero who is notorious for being one of the most difficult 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 the level 25 talent), 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. Ransack steals a little HP with each attack itself, but combining the efforts of all clones, it can heal Meepo and all of the clones and deal heavy pure damage to a foe. 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.pngMeepo, the Geomancer
▶️ "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."

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: 400
Damage: 60/80/100/120 (Talent 110/130/150/170)
With Aghanim's Shard Ally Poof Max Distance: 2000
Cooldown: 12/10/8/6
Mana: 80
Aghanim's Shard upgrade: Allows you to Poof to allies within 2000 range.
Sometimes breaking one of the Riftshadow Crystals can be just the trick for getting yourself out of a bind. Or your other self.

Notes:

  • Cannot directly target, but can still poof to invulnerable clones and illusions. Cannot Poof to hidden targets at all.
  • 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 once at the cast location and once at the destination point.
    • The damage from Poof stacks, so enemies within the cast location and destination point effectively take double the damage.
  • This is how much damage Poof can deal (before reductions) when a certain number of Meepos casts it at the same spot:
    • 1 Meepo: 120/160/200/240 (Talent 220/260/300/340)
    • 2 Meepos: 240/320/400/480 (Talent 440/520/600/680)

Modifiers
Buff modifier_meepo_ransack: Undispellable. Persists death.
So you gonna need that, or...?

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.


Dig icon.png
Affects
Self
Channels for 0.75 seconds and digs into the ground for 4 seconds, dispelling Meepo and causing him to be come invulnerable and untargetable for 4. Restores 40% of his max health over that duration. Can't be cast while rooted.
Cast Animation: 0+0
Channel Time: 0.75
Max Health Restored: 40%
Duration: 4
Cooldown: 40
Mana: 150
Cannot be cast while rooted or leashed. Root prevents casting Dig. Does not stop the channeling if it already started.

Ability
Passive

Self
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 (Talent 2/3/4)
Clone Experience Gain: 30%
Aghanim's Scepter upgrade: Grants a new ability: Dig.
Modifiers
Buff modifier_meepo_divided_we_stand: Undispellable. Persists death.
Do I know you?

Notes:

  • Unlike most other ultimates, Divided We Stand can be leveled up at level 4/11/18 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 each 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 that Attribute Bonus and the strength talent are effectively applied twice on Meepo clones.
    • 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.
  • When Meepo respawns with Reincarnation, all clones respawn next to the Meepo prime, and not at their death location.
  • The level 25 Talent talent automatically grants the extra Meepo clone and does not require Divided We Stand to be leveled.

Meepo Clones[edit]

Experience gain
  • Meepo clones only gain 30% of all experience, so that the remaining 70% are either lost or gained by nearby allies.
  • This results in the following distribution of experience
    • 0 Allies: The clone gets 30%, the remaining 70% are lost.
    • 1 Ally: The clone gets 15%, the ally gets 85%.
    • 2 Allies: The clone gets 10%, the allies share 90%.
    • 3 Allies: The clone gets 7.5%, the allies share 92.5%.
    • 4 Allies: The clone gets 6%, the allies share 94%.
  • Having multiple Meepo clones within experience range does not stack their share up, it always remains at 30%.
  • However, the primary Meepo, who still gains 100% experience normally like other heroes, can take part of the remaining 70% experience as well.
  • This results in the following distribution of experience if the primary Meepo and a Meepo clone are within range
    • 0 Allies: Meepo gets the full 100%.
    • 1 Ally: Meepo gets 57.5%, the ally gets the remaining 42.5%.
    • 2 Allies: Meepo gets 40%, the allies share the remaining 60%.
    • 3 Allies: Meepo gets 30.63%, the allies share the remaining 69.38%.
    • 4 Allies: Meepo gets 24.8%, the allies share the remaining 75.2%.
  • Experience sharing for the Meepo Clones and their allies can be defined as:
Items
Ability interactions
  • Meepo clones are treated as heroes in most cases. There are a few exceptions:
    • Thundergod's Wrath and Cataclysm do not target clones.
    • Decay steals strength from a single random Meepo within the area, not from all of them.
    • Flesh Heap and Atrophy Aura gain a single stack for dying Meepo clones, no matter how many of them were nearby.
    • Glaives of Wisdom's temporary intelligence steal does not work against Meepo clones.
      • When killing Meepo, he permanently steals from the primary Meepo only.
    • Duel grants the victory damage to the enemy only if the duelling Meepo is the one that gets killed. If the duelling Meepo dies due to another Meepo dying, the enemy does not gain victory damage.
      • If a Meepo clone wins a Duel, they gain the victory damage as well, and keep permanently. The other Meepoes do not copy the damage.
    • Track grants gold for each Meepo clone that got tracked.
    • Finger of Death gains a stack for each Meepo clone that died to its damage on a single cast.

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.
  • 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 is an alternative stat item to Wraith Band for when Meepo and his clones need survivability over damage.
  • 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 speed 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 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 combines extremely well with Poof to give Meepo enormous global mobility, as each clone has its own cooldown.
  • 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 to burst down enemies with Poof.
  • Scythe of Vyse icon.png Scythe of Vyse provides 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 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, while letting the main Meepo slow enemies on hit.
  • 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 grants extra attributes and gives an extra saving ability to Meepo and each of his clones, that increases their effective health in a fight and allows to dodge nukes and disables when used properly.
  • Manta Style icon.png Manta Style grants attributes, especially Agility, to all Meepo clones. The illusions can be used as extra damage, decoys, or Poof targets, and will benefit from Divided We Stand's attribute sharing.

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.
