Geb is one of the three bosses of the Tomb of the Ancients, along with Bes and Nut. He is considered the attacker of the Tomb.

The Realm Eye says:
Along with Bes and Nut, Geb is one of the oldest deities in the realm. In ancient times, he was a god of the earth.
As time passed, they were slowly forgotten and abandoned by most worshippers. Angered by this betrayal, the trio became wrathful.
To prevent the old gods from clashing with the new, their former acolytes now perform inhibition ceremonies on sarcophagi, trapping them in the sands of time.

Behavior

Awakening Phase
Taunts:
YOU HAVE AWAKENED US!

Upon being awakened, Geb circles around the boss room. He does not fire any bullets. After a certain amount of damage, he fires rings of weakening bullets and begins to rapidly fire pairs of fire magic bullets at players and throwing red bombs. If more damage is dealt to him, he will fully awaken and move on to the next phase.

Battle Phase
Taunts:
Nut, protect me at once!
My artifacts shall destroy you from your soul to your flesh!

Geb stops firing the rings of weakening bullets and adds radial bursts of fire magic and green boomerangs to his attacks. He also fires shotguns of Darkness Bolts aimed at the nearest player. As he takes damage, the number of his projectiles and frequency of his attacks increase. He may also fire a messy barrage of Fireballs that float around.

Occasionally Geb will flash and start hugging one of the other tomb bosses, or one of the other tomb bosses will flash and start hugging Geb.

At a certain amount of damage, Geb starts spawning Nile Artifacts and Scarabs, and he begins to toss low-damage bombs with an extremely wide blast radius. When his health is low enough, he moves into his rage phase.

Rage Phase
Taunts:
Argh! You shall pay for your crimes!

When at 5% HP, Geb will flash red, temporarily become invulnerable, and become stationary while firing all of his attacks simultaneously. He will slowly back away from players when approached, and will jump back into the middle of the room should he be backed into a wall. Note that he continues to spawn Nile Artifacts and Scarabs in this phase.

Tips and Strategies

Geb is typically done last in more organized fights against the Tomb trio. His high damage projectiles, powerful artifacts, and paralyzing Scarabs make him dangerous to safely approach for most classes.
Like the other Tomb bosses, he can be paralyzed and stunned in all his phases; however, his Nile Artifacts can pose a serious threat, as their high damage and potential for stacked shots can deal massive damage.

His rage phase in particular can be regarded as the hardest-to-approach phase in the game. Using Paralysis and Slow in this phase can be hugely succesful, especially when paired with a Trickster’s Decoy.
Classes with a long-range ability, such as Wizards, Assassins, and Huntresses can also chip away at Geb’s health without forcing him to back off.

Should there be no longer-ranged class, your best bet is to push Geb into a corner, then prepare for his jump back to get a few hits in. Weapons with longer lifetimes, such as the Ancient Stone Sword or Void Blade, may be useful in maximizing the damage done per “jump”.
