Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mekansm is not an actual word in English, but rather a corruption of the word "mechanism", which is fitting, considering its description of how it is made of assorted parts that fit and work together, and its appearance.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If the player drops items which provides a large amount of health (e.g. Vanguard icon.png Vanguard or Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi), then uses Mekansm, and then picks up the dropped items again, the player will overall heal for more than 250 health. This is because upon dropping the health granting items, the player's maximum health drops while the current health percentage stays the same, but Mekansm still heals for the full amount. After picking up the items again, its maximum health raises, and its current health percentage stays the same.
