 Recommended heroes
- Heroes whose default item build includes Mekansm as a core item: Abaddon, Ancient Apparition, Chen, Dazzle, Disruptor, Io, Keeper of the Light, Lich, Lion, Meepo, Necrophos, Phoenix, Razor, Silencer, Viper … further results.
- Heroes whose default item build includes Mekansm as a situational item: Ancient Apparition, Death Prophet, Earth Spirit, Enigma, Huskar, Jakiro, Nature's Prophet, Ogre Magi, Omniknight, Pugna, Shadow Demon, Windranger.
- Mekansm is not an actual word in English, but rather a corruption of the word "mechanism", considering its description of how it is made of assorted parts that fit and work together, and its appearance.
- If the player drops a large health pool item such as Vanguard or Eye of Skadi before using the Mekansm, the player will regain a larger percentage of their health pool. When the player picks the item up again, because health percentage does not change, the player will effectively regain more health.
