DISCLAIMER

As with other posts like this, I'm not suggesting that he needs some love (but well, this time he could have a bit). All I do is just presenting my vision, my version, my... Nevermind, that's obvious.

I am Wukong

So, I am the Monkey King, I do jump into enemy's team and knock them up. I also have a decoy that is exploited by mose users and passive that doesn't grant that much. I struggle versus any ranged hero and even Janna Janna can beat me on top lane. Also, when I want to play jungle, I struggle to kill the first camp.

  • Nimbus Assault can be used to avoid abilities.
  • When on the cloud, Wukong cannot attack and cannot cast spells other than Nimbus Assault, however he retains the ability to move. When he does, he ignores collision.
    • Despire being on the cloud, he cannot go through obstacles. He can however use the recast to leap over them.
  • Enemy can get damaged more than once, pretending that Wukongs do not leap at the same time.
    • This means, that when the duration expires and five Wukongs hit the same target, it will take damage from one instance.


The reason?

Wukong, even if he has some uniqueness in his hit, is struggling versus many of enemies. Also, he is easily punishable and is weaker than most other champions when he's not ahead, being also pretty strong (or very strong), when being ahead. the situation here is similar to this with Aatrox's before his changes - too strong if ahead, bad in all other cases. That's why I've decided to present you this example rework. Wukong presented here is more a bruiser than assassin he currently is, but still has great mobility (if not even better) and can contribute more to his team when out of ultimate. I've also gave him a tool for poking/farming distant minions.
