MAPS & MODES
In Gotham Heights, Mecha Wonder Woman plays well as a traditional Marksman. Use caution when fighting over Control Points because, early-on, Mecha Wonder Woman has very low health and defenses. Focus on getting your build together, staying alive and farming credit. Once you're a little built up, team with an ally champion who can initiate while you make the most of Implacable Judgment and basic attacks.
When multiple enemies are on a Control Point, let your ally initiate. Once they do, use Tempest to catch as many enemies as you can in one blast. If this fails to happen right away, harass enemies with low defense but stay in a safe position.
In Coast City, Mecha Wonder Woman excels in top or bottom lane. Glaive Storm will cover most of your lane and strike multiple targets, allowing you to easily clear drone waves. A solid approach is to build her with Attack Damage and use her basic attacks with Celerity to burn down enemy health.
Use caution when laning against other Marksman like Gaslight Batman or Cyborg, and wait until Implacable Judgment starts triggering bigger damage. Once you unlock Tempest, the combination of Implacable Judgment and the ultimate will prove quite deadly.
As always, keep an eye out for surprise attacks from the urban jungle, using Afterburn for those moments when you are surprised and need to juke an incoming enemy gank.
Universe of Origin: Mecha
Mecha Wonder Woman began life as D1A-NA, a diplomatic robot in service to Queen Hippolyta, ruler of the Amazon women of the island nation of Themyscira.
Called the "Wonder Woman" by mass media, Hippolyta made it her life's work to forge a more peaceful world. D1A-NA was ever-present as the queen traveled the world and in time developed a personality that reflected the idealistic woman's feelings on justice and equality.
Sadly, while accompanying Hippolyta on an errand of mercy, D1A-NA witnessed the horrific assassination of her queen at the hands of Doom Legion assassin bots. At that moment, she was transformed. An iron resolve developed within her, and she vowed to both avenge the queen’s death and continue her quest.
With aid of the Justice Consortium D1A-NA remade herself, far exceeding her creator’s original design. With these upgrades and knowledge of the Amazonian Warriors stored within her memory banks, she has taken on the mantle of "Wonder Woman" to shine the light of truth on a corrupt, violent world.
