League of Legends: Wild Rift is the mobile version of the popular MOBA title League of Legends. This game was one of the most anticipated games of this year and due to the delay of the prevailing pandemic, the launch was delayed.
Currently, Wild Rift is under open beta testing for almost half of the world and new additions are being made to make the game more stable. LOL: Wild Rift recently added a new champion named Wukong to their arsenal and here is everything you need to know about it.
LOL Wild Rift Champion Wukong details:
Wukong: The Monkey King is the 50th Champion that is added to the Wild Rift. He is exactly similar to the PC version with small changes made to sustain the mobile ecosystem. He falls under the fighter category and is one of the most powerful champions to come to Wild Rift. Similar to all the other champions, Wukong is available at 5500 Blue Motes or 725 Wild Cores.
A short introduction to his skills and passive is given below:
- Crushing Blow (Passive): Stacks up when dealing damage to a target and after completing five stacks, additional damage is dealt with that enemy champion
- First Skill – Golden Staff: Empowers the next basic attack with an additional range. One can use this ability frequently due to its low cooldown.
- Second Skill – Warrior Trickster: After casting this skill, Wukong creates a clone of itself and is invisible for 1.5s. This ability has to be timed perfectly to make full use of it.
- Third Skill – Nimbus Strike: Wukong dashes forward with two clones and deals damage to the enemy targets. If a single target is in the range, the clones will attack that champion. This can be used to narrow the distance or escape skirmishes.
- Ultimate Skill – Cyclone: Wukong rotates with his staff in hand and knocks up nearby enemies. If the clone is cast in this combo, it will also spin alongside Wukong. This ability can be cast twice in a combo and can be canceled by clicking on the skill button.
Wukong can easily be used in Baron Lane or as a jungler. This champion has a high damage output in the early game and hence, one can successfully harass the enemy in the solo lanes. Using Wukong in the jungle is also one of the viable options because it is easy to clear jungle camps with the first skill and this champion is perfect for ambushes.
Wukong Builds and Runes
The default builds provided by Wild Rift are accurate most of the time but you can alter it as per your necessities in each game.
If you are having an early lead then you can build the first core item and then go for boot enchantments as soon as you can or if you are losing, it is better to keep farming and go for the build as it is recommended and even build the defensive items like Guardian Angel first.
We recommend you to use the builds given in-game and only tweak them after gaining enough experience.
The rune tree can be altered as per your choice but it is recommended to keep Keystone Rune as Electrocute for most of your games. The domination rune tree can be set to ‘Brutal’ or ‘Vampirism’ as per your choice.
The resolve rune tree can be set to ‘Tenacity’ or ‘Regeneration but we recommend the latter option. The final inspiration rune should be kept on ‘Hunter – Genius’ to get the maximum cooldown. The most recommended rune tree will be as follows:
Wukong is very strong in the early game so if you are playing him in the Baron lane, it is suggested to harass the enemies using your first and third skill. Use them to burn the summoner spells of you enemies like flash or heal.
Roam as much as you can and if you are a jungler, make sure to attack from the bushes and surprise your enemies as most of them will fail to react quickly and then get trapped in your ultimate skill.
Wukong is a strong fighter in Wild Rift so take full advantage of it before Riot balances it out.
