Background Story

As you rest your head on your pillow at night, you can't help but notice a dark shape in the corner of the ceiling. You look closely at it, but you can't make out what it is. In the morning, you see that it's gone. Yet the next night, it returns.

Tips

  • When playing as Geomancer:
    • your role is to be the roaming ganker and disabler with your various stuns and slows.
    • Remember that you can second cast your Dig while underground to stun where you currently are.
    • Geomancer has one of the longest range sneak stun in the game, use the trees to your advantage since they don't get destroyed.
    • You can cast your other spells while in Dig, which means you can start digging and casting the Crystal Field and Quicksand at the same time, making the cast time even less noticeable.
    • A highly recommended item is Portal Key.
      • If you pk forward while in Dig, Geomancer will instantly stun the area
      • If you pk backward while in Dig, Geomancer will pk instantly back after stunning.
      • Overall it adds a whole extra dimension to this hero's gameplay
    • Earth's Grasp can be used on creeps to farm.


  • When facing Geomancer:
    • Walk perpendicularly and don't get caught by Dig.
    • Boots can often outrun Earth’s Grasp.
    • If you see the purple animation of Crystal Field during teamfight, it's best to run out first.
    • Beware of sneaky Geomancer Dig+Crystal Field+Quicksand combination as it will hurt alot.
