League of Legends: Wild Rift is a mobile version of the famous League of Legends MOBA title. This game was one of the most awaited games of this year, and due to the delay in the ongoing pandemic, the launch was postponed.
Wild Rift is currently under open beta testing for almost half of the world, and new changes are being made to make the game more stable. A new champion named Wukong was recently added to their arsenal by Wild Rift, and here’s all you need to know about it.
DETAILS OF WILD RIFT CHAMPION WUKONG:
The Monkey King has been introduced to the Wild Rift as the 50th Champion. With minor improvements made to preserve the mobile ecosystem, it is precisely comparable to the PC edition. He comes under the category of warrior and is one of the best champions to come to the Wild Rift. Wukong is accessible at 5500 Blue Motes or 725 Wild Cores, equivalent to all the other champions.
ABILITIES Of WUKONG – League of Legends: Wild Rift
Here is a brief reference to his talents and his passive:
Crushing Blow (Passive): Stacks up when dealing damage to a champion and after completing five stacks, deal additional damage to enemy champion
First Skill – Golden Staff: Empowers his next basic attack with an additional range. One can use this ability frequently because of its low cooldown.
Second Skill – Warrior Trickster: After casting the skill, Wukong creates a clone of himself and is invisible for 1.5s.
Third Skill – Nimbus Strike: Wukong dashes forward with two clones and deals damage to the enemies. If the target is in the range, the clones will attack that champion. This can be used to narrow the distance or to escape.
Ultimate Skill – Cyclone: Wukong rotates with his staff in hand and knocks up nearby champions. If the clone is cast in the combo, it will also spin alongside Wukong. This ability can be cast twice in a combo and can be canceled by pressing on the skill button.
League of Legends: Wild Rift WUKONG ROLES
Wukong can be effectively used in Baron Lane or as a jungler. This champion has a high damage output in the early stages of the game, so you can successfully harass the opponent in the solo lanes. Using Wukong in the jungle is among the viable alternatives, as it is easy to clear jungle camps with the first skill, and this champion is great for surprise attacks.
WUKONG BUILDS AND RUNES
The default builds presented by Wild Rift are correct most of the time, but you can adjust it according to your needs in each game.
If you have early lead then you can build the first core item or just go for boot enchantments as fast as you can or when you’re losing, it’s better to keep farming and build it as suggested, and even build defensive items like Guardian Angel first.
We suggest that you use the builds given in-game and only tweak them after you have acquired enough experience.
The rune tree can be changed if you choose, but it is recommended that you keep Keystone Rune as an Electrocute during most of your games. The dominating rune tree may be set to ‘Brutal’ or ‘Vampirism’ if you like.
The preset rune tree may be set to ‘Tenacity’ or ‘Regeneration,’ but the latter choice is preferred. The final inspiration rune should be held on ‘Hunter – Brilliant’ in order to get the maximum cooldown. The most recommended rune tree is as follows:
Wukong is rather strong in the early stage, so if you’re playing it in the Baron Lane, it’s recommended that you harass your enemies with your first and third abilities.
Roam as much as you could and if you’re a jungler, make sure you strike from the bushes and ambush your enemies because most of them would struggle to respond quickly and so get caught in your ultimate abilities.
Overall, Wukong is a good warrior in Wild Rift, so try to take advantage of it before Riot balances it out.
