How to Make a Powerful Geomancy Build in Ghostlore

Geomancy is a spell of a physical nature found within the Geomancer class, enabling the creation of a ground-based spike wave that delivers multiple powerful strikes to enemies, causing significant damage. This comprehensive guide aims to provide instructions on developing a formidable earth mage character capable of successfully engaging with various forms of content.


Choose Geomancer as your initial class, Exorcist as your level 15 class, and Sentinel as your level 30 class when starting the game. It is crucial to connect Geomancy with support options that reduce cooldown duration by 100%, effectively reducing its cooldown time to 0 seconds. These support options are marked in green. You can accomplish this by utilizing either five -20% cooldown supports from Geomancer or four -20% supports from Geomancer combined with two -10% cooldown supports from Sentinel. Additionally, make sure to attach as many Skill Multiplier supports as possible to Geomancy.

Connect your summoned minions with Additional Minions and Minion Health multipliers, and include a Trigger on Kill support to automate their casting process. In this build, the minions serve as a means of support rather than dealing damage. They fulfill tasks such as healing you, activating curses, and acting as tanks on your behalf.

For the final step, attach Exorcise to Trigger on Minion Hit support and utilize the Hex class bonus (which provides a +20% curse strength). By doing so, Exorcise will significantly reduce enemy defenses, thereby boosting your overall damage per second (DPS).

Regarding the remaining supports located in the middle square of the Power grid, their primary purpose is to activate Class Bonuses and does not directly impact the effectiveness or power of the build in any other way.

Class Bonuses

Each time you allocate 4 points from a class in the Power grid, you unlock a Class Bonus. Obtaining the Feedback Loop bonus should be your highest priority since it grants you virtually infinite MP, allowing you to spam Geomancy continuously. Other beneficial bonuses from the Exorcist class include Hex and Near Death Experience. The Sentinel class also offers exceptional bonuses such as Warden of the Forest and Survival Instincts, which enhance your tankiness, as well as Sharpshooter and Marksmanship, which significantly increase your damage output.

It is worth noting that the bonuses from the Geomancer class may not be particularly useful for this build, as we do not rely heavily on elemental damage due to Geomancy being a physical spell. Therefore, you have the freedom to choose any bonuses from the Geomancer class that align with your preferences.


Ensuring that you have six active meals at all times is of utmost importance as food grants permanent stat bonuses to your character. I recommend consuming Kueh Lapis three or four times to benefit from its movement speed bonus. Fill the remaining slots with Additional Damage, Crit Chance, Cast Speed, or Item Find, depending on your preference and playstyle. Keep in mind that the food shop offers only six menu items at a time, so if Kueh Lapis is not available, you can complete a zone and check again for its availability.

To acquire the ingredients needed for cooking, you can either interact with sparkling objects in the game world or purchase them from a food vendor who occasionally appears at the beginning of a zone. The bonuses you receive from eating food are randomized. If you happen to obtain an undesirable bonus, such as only 5% movement speed, you can simply click the X button on the food item and try again for a different bonus.


Glyphs can be obtained as drops from enemies in the wilderness, and they provide significant power bonuses to your character. They function in a similar manner to the charm system in Diablo 2. When it comes to selecting glyphs, I suggest prioritizing Skill Damage, HP (health points), and Avoidance as your primary statistics to enhance your effectiveness in combat and survivability.

The recommended Compound Glyph for this particular build is Ilo. However, if you come across other Compounds like Nasin that possess favorable stats, they can be utilized as well. Compound Glyphs activate their bonuses based on the specific types of glyphs they contain. Occasionally, it may be necessary to include a seemingly useless glyph in your grid in order to activate a Compound Glyph. In the case of Ilo, only the Crit Chance and Crit Damage components need to be activated, while the others can be disregarded.

To enhance the power of a Compound Glyph, you have the option to increase its rarity through an upgrade performed by a blacksmith, albeit at a cost. This upgrade will provide additional stats to the glyph. It’s important to note that while my current Glyph setup may not be perfect, the ideal goal is to have the entire Glyph grid covered with Compound Glyphs for maximum effectiveness.


In terms of weapon stats, the most crucial ones to prioritize, in order, are Additional Damage, Crit Chance, Crit Multi, and Cast Speed. Additional Damage provides a significant boost to your overall damage output. Crit Chance increases the likelihood of landing critical hits, while Crit Multi enhances the damage multiplier for critical strikes. Cast Speed improves the speed at which you can cast spells or perform actions.

Don’t overlook the importance of socketing gems into your weapon. Gems offer a substantial amount of Additional Damage, so be sure to utilize them to further augment your damage potential. It’s worth noting that the base damage of your weapon itself does not directly impact your DPS (damage per second) in this build.

When it comes to the remaining gear, it is essential to focus on achieving sufficient Resistance values to reach 75% (or 79% with the class bonus) in all four resistances. This will provide significant protection against elemental damage. Afterward, prioritize acquiring Avoidance until you reach 100% Avoidance, which greatly reduces the chance of being hit by enemy attacks. Additionally, prioritize obtaining as much HP (health points) as possible to enhance your survivability.

While defensive stats like Resistance, Avoidance, and HP are of utmost importance, other stats such as Skill Damage, Crit Chance, Cast Speed, or Item Find can also be useful but should be considered lower priority in comparison.

Once you have completed the campaign, a new area called Hell Gate Island is unlocked, which offers an endless mode. In this mode, you have the opportunity to acquire Hell Ingots as drops. These Hell Ingots can be utilized by interacting with the guard near the gate, allowing you to reroll the stats on your gear. This presents an excellent chance to create powerful gear with desirable stats using the Hell Ingots. With this system, it becomes relatively straightforward to enhance the effectiveness of your equipment.
