Recommended heroes[edit]

Necrophos icon.png


  • Necrophos is not highly dependent on items to deal damage, and Mekansm lets him survive longer to burn down enemy health with Heartstopper Aura
  • Combined with Death Pulse, Mekansm gives Necrophos a strong burst heal.
  • Ghost Shroud synergizes well with Mekansm, as it amplifies the heal, and also the passive regeneration of it. An early Mekansm can heal more than 50% of Necrophos' health when combined with Ghost Shroud and a single cast of Death Pulse.
Dark Seer icon.png

Dark Seer

  • Mekansm is the first step to a Guardian Greaves icon.png Guardian Greaves for Dark Seer, who relies almost entire on his abilities for damage, and therefore builds nearly all defensive items.
Io icon.png


  • Tether doubles the healing for Io's allies.



  • 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.
