I find the quantity of divine lms you have seriously suspicious.

Besides, i also do not understand how you define new metas. The builds you displayed never hit the arena, how can they be meta?

Meta = most efficient tactic available, if you can make the most efficient, then it is meta (by definition). These are meta, not necessarily most popular :wink:

And on the topic of relics, I don’t have divines for all 3 mechs, I just changed all the divine items for each mech before screenshotting. I’ll use WU once new item is loaded.

Meta actually means proven efficiency and widely used. Orthodox path to high tier level.

Okay, then let’s just think of this thread as best builds in game. I will add meta (your definition) later :slight_smile:

Only reason high cap mechs were even viable was because this new module wasn’t out yet.

The 21 regen and cooling module has been reborn, and the natural course of SM mech building can resume.

All my builds I show I have tested. If you think there’s something better, let me know :slight_smile:

I think the phys you were using till now was better; The lm drone hits much harder, elec cap is too low.
Heat one is standard. Not bad, not good
Elec seems quite ok.

I just find it fun that you add “best” in front of everything you write…

Yeah, if anything, the 3k hp version with new mods will be better than older version (see “Super Strong” physical build). Heat is just a nice upgrade over traditional hugger.

I’m adding “best” because I plan to add other popular builds and I want to make it easy for the community to find the best build vs. popular. I’ll have to dig up older threads to credit those who made. project for later today…
