Comment: The main ability of Meepo. Use this to keep your enemy's from running or catching you, and also to scout your surroundings. Very useful.
Drawing mystical energies from the earth, Meepo can teleport to another Geomancer, leaving destruction in his wake. After channeling for 1.5 seconds, Meepo instantly teleports to nearest target Geomancer, dealing damage in 400 AOE in the departure and arrival locations.
Level 1 - 50 damage.
Level 2 - 80 damage.
Level 3 - 110 damage.
Level 4 - 140 damage.
When targeted, Meepo will teleport to the Meepo closest to the target point (can be the same Meepo as casts it).
If Meepo teleports to himself, both departure and arrival damage will be dealt in the same area.
Casting range: Global
Area of Effect: 400
Mana Cost: 80
Cooldown: 14/12/10/8 Seconds
Comment: The damage on this ability is very low, use it as a means to keep your clones together. NOTE: You can use this on your main hero on himself if you do not have a clone.
The Geomancer enchants his weapon with the essence of the earth, crushing the life from his enemies and numbing their legs. Slows target movement speed and deals damage per second. The effects are additive with other geomancers. Lasts 2 seconds.
Level 1 - 5% slow, 5 damage per second.
Level 2 - 10% slow, 10 damage per second.
Level 3 - 15% slow, 15 damage per second.
Level 4 - 20% slow, 20 damage per second.
Does not stack with buff placers.
Geostrike's slow of every Meepo stacks directly.
Mana Cost: N/A
Comment: A very nice spell for a slow and a nice little boost in damage.
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.
Level 1 - 1 Geomancer.
Level 2 - 2 Geomancers.
Level 3 - 3 Geomancers.
The only item that transfers to the clones is one pair of boots (any type).
Meepo clones can use active abilities from Boots of Travel and Phase Boots.
Meepo clones gain 25% of any extra attributes the primary Meepo has.
Can be upgraded by Aghanim's Scepter: adds an extra clone. Note that the Scepter is undroppable once acquired.
Mana Cost: N/A
Comment: The driving force of Meepo. There is so much you can do with your extra clones that those who know how to use him can literally be unstoppable. Use your clones to creep for you, use them to feed you by sending them in separate lanes, or just use them to kill enemy heroes. However, The only item they can have are the boots you are wearing (Boots of Travel, Power Treads, or Boots of Speed. You only need one pair for your main hero, the clones get a free version of it in their inventory). This is Meepo's weakness. More on this later. Also, clones get 25% of the attribute bonus that your main Meepo gets.

ATTENTION TO THOSE THAT DID NOT SEE ASSAULT CUIRASS AS PART OF MY ITEM GUIDE:
Assault Cuirass is horrible. The attack speed bonus that your clones get is horrible, the +5 armor aura doesn't stack with Vladmir's, and it uses up an item slot that could be used on something better (I.E. a Messers for health). The only bonus to this item-slot-wasting-6000-gold paper weight is the negative 5 armor aura. But for 6000 gold, AND an item slot, there is much better things that could be gotten.
Start by buying a Ring of Regeneration and 2 Ironwood Branches (You'll need these to get the items needed for Mekansm).
Early game Meepo is fairly weak. Low life, low damage, and, fairly, useless spells.
I don't recommend going mid if your not very good with him. Instead, go top or bottom with a 2nd hero on your team and assist him with Earthbind to get a kill or two.
From level 1-5 try to stay back and try to deny your creeps or last hit theirs. Depending on what 2nd hero is with you and what hero(es) you are facing you should be able to stay out without having to go back to base at all.
Once you get level 6 you get your first clone. Your clones are like a second Meepo, except they can't carry items. Your clones can cast all the spells Meepo has learned allowing you to chain spells for better potential. Careful though, since your clones can't carry items their life and regeneration are going to suffer, making them easy targets for the enemy.
As soon as you get your first clone, I recommend sending your Main Meepo (MM) back to base to get supplies while your 2nd Meepo (2M) stays in your lane getting you XP and money. Careful though, as this makes your single, weak, clone an easy target for the enemy.
Hopefully you've gotten a few creep kills or maybe even a hero kill. This should net you about 800 gold (in EM) by the time your level 6. Your main priority now is to get a Mekansm.
Start by getting a Headdress of Regeneration. This is a very nice item for you because it allows your clone to regenerate health much better than before. If you have enough, get Boots of Speed or a Ring of Basilius (Ring of Basilius if you aren't having much trouble in your lane, Boots of Speed if you are, or if you need it for chasing for hero kills.) before heading out.
Head back to your lane and keep it safe. With your second clone you should be able to double your usefulness to the allied hero in your lane. Your nets will now hold enemy heroes for a total of 4 seconds and with two Meepos thats double the damage from attacks as well as double the slow from Geostrike.
Hint: With multiple Meepos selected press tab to toggle through them to easily chain spells.
Ensnare can take a bit to get used to. It isn't a targetable spell which makes it hard to hit heroes or other units if they are moving. Ensnare has a little less than a 1 second casting time and then it takes more time for the net to hit its target location. Try to compensate by aiming ahead of the fleeing hero. It'll take a bit to master but once you do, no hero will be able to escape you.
Hint: Net gives vision of where it lands. Cast Earthbind ahead of you or in the forests to see what your up against.
Hopefully by the end of early game you'll have andand maybe .
