Wukong rework first impressions

Hair of the King fits nicely actually and comes straight from established lore. So kudos for that.

With regard to lore, I'm actually a bit surprised that DE hasn't considered giving him the ability to summon protective circles, although I can kind of understand leaving out his ability to freeze enemies.

His rework sounds interesting enough for me to want to actually consider picking him up, but...

Yeah, just a reminder that this is the same "amazing" Pablo that gave us Saryn the Nuker *slow clap*  People only worship Pablo because he's allow some of us to wrack up ridiculous kill counts at the expense of the rest of the squad.

Hey Pablo! Co-op play is a thing! It means cooperating and playing well with others!

Yes, I'm extremely wary of him working on Wukong - and Vauban for that matter. I fear he'll either trivialize everything in sight or be just as mediocre as before, but in a different and more convoluted way...and still not play well with others / benefit groups.

When I mean people react the same way, I mean by just S#&$ting on removing the "set and forget" mentality. I don't see Pablo as a God, but I see him someone who knows what he's doing. Unlike Nyx, Titania, Zephyr and, at some extent, Hydroid changes, Plabo's changes make sense and does come to play.
Pablo's Nezha is honestly really really fun to use! I feel like I am a nice addition to the team, but also not just carrying the mission behind the scenes (*looks at Trinity*).
Saryn, is a rework I just dislike. You can do so much with so little effort. I's effective, sure, but it's not fun.

While this one, all I can think of is a amalgamation (haha) of Harrow's and Wisp mechanics with a sprinkle of Baruuk in there....

Fair, but I feel like more often than not he fails to take other players into consideration when brainstorming and tinkering. He also strikes me as being a bit of a troll at times when it comes to him dealing with players.

Also, he's a UI guy. What's a UI guy doing working on a Warframe's abilities? Don't they have people to do that very job?

Well for 1 DE is a small company so they need to switch people around ALOT probably. yes they've got their main specialty, but eh talents can also help them assist in other departments.
Also I can see why Pablo does what he does, the way warframe is going warframes are starting to have multiple classes and builstyles that let them double as 2 or more classes. I'm kinda against it but 1 person can't really push against an entire community. In the past we had warframes that could build for CC or Tank. CC or Support. Support or Tank. Tank or Damage. Damage or Support. Support or Defense. etc etc. But now it almost feels like it's a requirement to have at least 2 classes always present in a Kit. Pablo does this with alot of his reworks.

Hey, i'm not here to talk bad about Pablo. The guy does a amazing job on what he does and if he's capable in doing the UI and those good Warframes/Reworks so far (You can't deny that his stuff works) then that's very good.

If you didn't notice, new Warframes are less straightforward and more well rounded.

See Ash. Ash kill stuff, Ash is very very good at killing stuff, but he can't do much aside from that. Now look at Wisp, she has damage, tank, support, CC. For the current state of the game, a Warframe with only a single job has very little use.

Excalibur has the same type of passive, and Wukong's current one is pretty negligible.

Excalibur passive works on BLADES, so Swords, Dual Swords, Nikanas and Rapiers are all open to his passive, while the one it's being presented to Wukong is just for POLEARMS, and there are not many good ones in-game. All I can compare this passive too is Revenant and Nova, where it's essentially the same thing, but with different pre-requisites (Nova being knockdown and Revenant once his shields runs out).

I think op meant its the same in that he gets a bonus for using a specific type of weapon. Also the one presented was for polearms and staffs. And theres a good amount of polearms ( tipedo prime, orthos prime) and staffs( most zaw staffs)

I just want Cloudwalker to pass through laser traps in spy vaults like Ivara and Limbo..or at least a syndicate mod that will allow it to do so....Also the buff coming out of it..if that can be on par with Chroma on a Eidolon Hunt then it would be for once helpful, DE...

DE,

Removing invincibility from Wukong is like removing invisibility from Ivara, both are non-interactive and so-called 'permanent'

Both frames essentially rely on these abilities for specific tasks.  People who do not like those abilities simply do not or rarely use those frames.

This is beyond outrage to remove the core ability that players who do use successfully for specific tasks.  One the day you remove the core ability from those warframes, you will be infuriating a developed player base, what is the point of do that?

If you want to make the core ability more interesting, isn't it more logical to improve the tried-and-true ability, make it even better, instead of outright destroying it?!

Last I heard mentioned, they had 264 employees but that was several months ago. That's not exactly "small".

https://www.glassdoor.com/Overview/Working-at-Digital-Extremes-EI_IE238612.11,27.htm

Looking at those figures and considering the support they have from their owners, they can afford to hire someone that can help out in terms of making Steve's and Scott's intentions and visions real and balanced.

That's part of the problem: Class synergy and whether those classes fit the Frame's theme properly or not.

That's a matter of opinion. Some of the recent UI work that's been pushed has arguably been a step backwards in terms of usability. See Relics.

Yes, his UI stuff works (in that it functions) and looks nice, I won't deny that. But that's all the good I can honestly say about it.

I did notice...but do you have any proof that the ability kits for Garuda, Revenant, Hildryn, and Wisp were Pablo's responsibility? Because (thanks to the dev streams I may add) I was under the very distinct impression that those were Scott's creations. If so, Scott's the reason those Frames are well rounded, not Pablo.

And to be honest, Scott is fairly consistent with regard to coming up with fairly well-rounded ability sets. He strikes me as being more conservative in his approach to things - while Steve tends to push boundaries hard - but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

About this, yes 264 employees is a super big number... for us. However lets remember that large companies have a difficult time creating content, granted they're lazy and lax and could be making way more, but lets compare strictly numbers. Blizzard lays off 800 employees... thats... alot. Yes DE has more people than we can imagine working on Warframe, but even if we take into account that they work themselves to the bone and say ok 1 DE employee is worth 3 normal employees, that still only just comes close to what blizzard layed off. They have a very limited amount of people to work with, especially if we have these departments where people work. You're bound to have to switch developers in and out of their specializations in order to complete content on time.

Look i'm just saying that DE doesn't actually count as a large company despite being a really popular game.Riot, the developer company of LoL has over 2000 employees. 2000. Thats a ton of people. DE is small compared to them and yet warframe is so popular it's starting to get up there in popularity fighting it off with Destiny. Bungie has around 700 employees. DE has half the team they do and produce content. You NEED to rotate people in and out, you NEED to have employees that can do multiple tasks. It's how warframe has survived so long.

Pablo in specific has grown somewhat popular because he undertook a few reworks and came up with functionality for some warframes like Nidus. These warframes and reworks were very well revived *despite saryn being the most OP thing since Telos Boltace 1.0*. I don't like some of his reworks, but what he does he did because he was taken off the UI team to work on this stuff. In larger companies you won't see this as often because they've got the resources. DE doesn't... That's why Pablo is... on the rework team ok why are we talking about Pablo in the wukong chat again? 😕 Ok to keep this relevant to Wu Kong. this.

I agree with you, i don't want Pablo touching Wu Kong. It's just that i'd rather have a Pablo style rework, then an ember nerf fest. Or a you can charge your balls "rework". Right?

My take on the proposed rework, based on the devstream descriptions of how it works out...

The clone seems... iffy, from my experience with AI partners. Multiple clones sounds better. (2+) The whole tag-team you shoot while I melee aspect is "interesting" and potentially useful. The suggestion in this thread to allow "marking" enemies somehow to force the clone to perform a synchronous attack along with you on the same target at the same time, has potential - this removes the reliance on AI aspect, and gives more control to the player.

The Defy change seems like (from the tone of how it was introduced - we're nerfing this, but we're making everything else stronger, so don't worry?) it's ripping away the one thing the casual Wukong players enjoy using from his kit (and it's quite limited in usefulness depending on builds and enemy situations - leech eximus, nightmare mods, nullifiers, etc). Personally, I'd just give Defy a different requirement to prevent death than just having energy to maintain Defy: Use once to put up the buff, only if a clone is currently alive (or mark the clone with Defy). Now, IF a(the) clone is alive when you would take fatal damage, you immediately switch places with a(the) living clone and the clone takes the hit instead of you and disappears. (sorta like a Trinity or Nidus link)

Cloudwalker is actually one of the abilities I use frequently on Wukong, as I like to do Spy Vaults to level my weapons, instead of Hydron or ESO farming. Moving faster in the cloud will be quite nice. Would also be nice if enveloping an enemy in the cloud would also reset their alertness to unalert. With this change, you could cloudwalk/dash through a few enemies, then "finisher" your way back through them, or simply move along without having been noticed, all trickster-like. If he could pick up party members and pull them along with him in his cloud, even better (allowing them to dodge-roll out of it at any time).

I really hope they adjust the opacity of the cloud, though... it feels more like a smokescreen debuff enemies would place on you in racing games.

Secondarily, the suggestion to have a (void)cloud-like K-drive would be a great thing for him in open world areas.

Primal Fury... I don't have any comment on. Too many changes with the melee system and combos and the combo counter to really suggest anything at this point in time.

i had too

defy is neat but i agree boring as long as you have some form of energy restore your absolutely invincible since to turn it on and off is pretty quick but i cannot speak much on it i dont play wukong he too boring for my taste for how easy he can turn off the concept of damage = risk of death

honestly surprised people dont meta use him since its turn defy on grab nothing can kill you get your uber riven weapon and just stomp oh and then come to the forums and ask for a challenge to meet your power :clem:

most fun i got out of him was making a build for his one and his augment pogo man not very strong but pretty entertaining

Yes, Ember was handled very badly and I see your point. I appreciate your being a bit clearer on this.

While I might not necessarily agree with everything you've said, I do respect your point of view, I acknowledge that do make some valid points, and I appreciate your wish to keep this on topic and civil.

That said, thank you.

Pablo does a good job when he's inspired. He's played plenty of saryn and nezha hence why their reworks came out so well. Wukong no clue if he even plays him at all so it's looking iffy. 

Hard to make good reworks on something you don't know like the back of your hand. Applies to anyone.

How about u wait until the concept is finished before complaining, it was clearly stated that everything is WIP with some abilities that cant be shown at the time

Except this is the prime time to give feedback?

I see people scold others for giving feedback before something is out and that very same person scolding people complains about the changes and complains they didn't listen to feedback.

(try saying that title ten times fast... like seriously, it would be hilarious if people sent in voice clips of that)

The most recent Devstream showed of some in-progress displays of Wukong's rework. I have a few problems with it, so here are my issues and suggestions.

I will also be pulling from my last Wukong thread, while incorporating the newly show off ideas.

Last thread:

  Reveal hidden contents

I obviously do not still agree with my former (foolish) notion that Wukong wasn't weak, because he only has one good ability. The rest were mediocre to downright bad.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

First, let's go over the wacky stuff shown off in the Devstream.

1ST - Hair of the King

  Reveal hidden contents

 

A clone of Wukong is created that engages in the opposite combat mode the player is in. It sounds pretty interesting, but there's one huge problem that we've learned already. This clone is AI and Warframe friendly AI is pretty terrible. Having an entire ability rely on it is basically having no ability at all. Not to mention that specters exist. Cool in concept, but the execution definitely needs to be changed... at least until AI improvements are made.

2ND - Defy

A divisive one indeed, though I am quite a fan of the direction the ability has been taken in. It's much more engaging, skillful, and fun. My problem with it is that it doesn't entirely make up for what was lost with the original Defy. A few addition effects should be thrown in. Additionally, I think that Defy should encourage more skillful play to prevent spamming and bestow a penalty upon those who mistime it or a bonus to those who time is better (more on that later).

3RD - Cloud Walker

Though I was impressed with the proposed mechanical changes to Defy, I was immediately met with disappointment with the Cloud Walker showcase. Next to no changes were made, and the suggestions from players for a complete rework of the ability was completely disregarded. Cloud Walker is still boring, out of place, and unrepresentative of the lore it was based from.

4TH - Primal Fury (Iron Staff)

  Reveal hidden contents

 

I'm not a fan of the Baruuk-style meter that has been proposed at all. I understand that DE wanted to make it feel more special, but this is the wrong way to do it. It doesn't really fit with Wukong at all. Instead, it should embody the properties of the pole more. On the other hand, the combo changes and damage increases were pretty sweet, nothing more to say it.

So, this is a pretty 50/50 rework. How do we improve on it? Here are my suggestions:

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

While we're talking about making some Wukong changes, let's adjust his attributes to fit more in-line with his role.

Attribute Changes -

  • increase health from 300 to 450
  • decrease shields from 375 to 175
  • increase armor from 225 to 300
  • increase sprint speed from 0.95 to 1.10

And with that, a bit of a passive change...

NEW Passive -

Wukong has an additive 15% range and speed when using polearm and stuff weapons.

1ST - Hair of the King

Wukong throws out hairs to up to 6 enemies in a 20 meter cone, marking them while also rending armor. When enemies are marked, clones will appear at the target's location before performing a Primal Fury combo on them and finally fading into a cloud, temporarily blinding them.

  • a solution to the AI problem, since clones will have set actions

2ND - Defy

Though we don't have too much information on Defy, I would like to add on to what was revealed on it. Let's say that in addition to Wukong throwing out damage when timed correctly, he will also regenerate some health. Time Defy better to regenerate more health. When Defy is used when Hair of the King is active, the clones will all combine into one, shift back to Wukong's position, and absorb damage with him.

  • makes up for what was lost in health regeneration
  • rewards skillful play by granting bonuses to those who taunt with proper timing, as it could potentially leave players wide open to damage
  • suggestion: reflected damage is multiplied to account for enemy defenses

3RD - Cloud Walker

We all want Goku, we love K-Drives. We like flying. Though this could require a lot of work to make right, here's an idea...

Wukong summons down a cloud from the heavens that he can ride on to assist him in traversal and battle. Only melee weapons and the Iron Staff are available for use in this mode. When the cloud is called down, enemies with a 6 meter radius are briefly stunned with fog. Wukong's speed is increased by 50% and he also has freedom of verticality via holding down the jump button.

  • fits better into Wukong's kit, allowing for more synergy; more thematically accurate

4TH - Primal Fury

It seems as though lots of people are saying that the proposed "Baruuk-style meter" is something they don't want to see. Though we don't have the specifics, I can agree on this sentiment. Instead, how about something like this? Wukong's Primal Fury has three stages: small, medium, large. Wukong can access these stages via holding down the ability key, shifting Wukong into three different stances to indicate each stage. While charging up, Wukong is invulnerable to damage, and absorbs it to temporarily add a percentage of slash damage to the Iron Staff. The larger the Iron Staff is, the slower, but also stronger. Iron Staff has increased ground slam radius and damage.

  • more thematically accurate
  • more viable in high-level play/endgame (more slash-is-king and increased damage)
  • more CC via ground-slams

So... lemme know what you think!

Rereading jttw to make one more insane than this one.

That's the problem...when he's inspired. And "good job" is a questionable description.

That's a funny way of saying Saryn's rework came out horribly overpowered and with little consideration for other players and the hefty bonuses that mods can provide. Because that rework is objectively unbalanced and thus bad. When a Frame can delete dozens of enemies within seconds with minimal effort on Hydron and ESO, which a lot of players can and will testify to, that's stupidly overpowered and needs to be addressed.

Arguably, only incredibly naive players and self-serving kill hogs would think that this is perfectly ok and call her rework "great".

Nezha is in a somewhat better place than before, but I still see lots of people using Fire Walker and Warding Halo the vast majority of the time and maybe Divine Spears once in a while.

I had a long responde written out but this is a wukong rework so i'll cut it short. Look up the specifics of these abilities and look up how much better they are when compared to similar abilities such as molt vs decoy.

Saryn got a rework and all her abilities are as follows.

Spores, an infinite scaling dps armor strip that coveres entire rooms
Molt, A better loki decoy that's actually useful
Toxic Lash, God Tier toxin damage and melee boost. Increases all weapon damage.
Misama, massive aoe stun that cuts enemy hp in half making slash great.

All of this is condition overload of 240% with an extra 60% from lash boost. She can mop the floor with ESO defection, and defense.

I'm a banshee player ok. Reworks such as pablo's while they're great make frames irrelivent. Hell I don't know who worked on wisp but thats a good place to show you what I mean.

Wisp got released with reservoir. It gives max hp and insane regen, stupid movement speed, and stuns all enemies in her mote area or around the buffed warframe. cool right? well there are those of us who saw this and were like, wait a second.... WAIT A- VAUBAN NO! YOU'RE NOT MEANT TO CROSS DRESS. 

Tesla can be charged for 5 seconds to zap a single enemy for poor damage. Maybe CC if you're lucky.

   Now class lets compare, who's first ability is more powerful? that's right WISP! know why? her 1 ability isn't just tesla on sterioids, but it's an infinite team buff in speed, hp, and regen. Oh yeah she can teleport to them at any range to. Place a mote infron tof the PoE gate and teleport to it from amountain about 700m away. You can still teleport to that reservoir. There are other exmples like why did loki's decoy ability get ripped off again or why can wisp even blind enemies through walls. That's literally what they nerfed Mirage's ult for in Draco. What's the point.

   What were trying to say is yes Saryn's rework was great. so good in fact it failed. She got reworked but other frames now need a rework to even be recognized by the community. Either that or nerf saryn. She's so good she made other warframes a moot point. yeah she can't kill an eidolon or farm enemies, but everywhere else she's the goddess that looks down on other warframes in pity.
   I'm a banshee main, ok, follow me for a bit. Saryn has 4 status types available with her augment that all kill enemies. Lets say everyone in the match has condition overload on their weapons. Well, ok what's the point of my banshee? damage boost? why though? we already have 240% damage boost with gas, toxin, viral, and corrosive. Not even counting our own weapon's status. My damage boost has become completly useless. I'm only useful when enemies hit say lvl 150. That's when saryn can't kill enemies alone. But eh, why would we go to 150 enemies again? oh right we don't... ever. banshee's lost her place in the game. And saying that soundquake is her best ability is just a lie. It's sonor and silence. But theres no reason to use those. Just because they lost viability doesn't mean they aren't her best abilities. I refuse to use my damage support as an afk exp booster. Saryn did this to me. DE did this to me by removing void keys. At least nova is still useful with her slow and speed buffs which is tied to her best ability, Banshee's got nothing. Ask shy, she hates sound quake. Banshee can still be played yes, but when you see a banshee now, are they running to boost your team? or are they running a small savage silence build. Us banshee players have lost our place in the game and now take it out on a single enemy at a time. We used to be THE BEST warframe to take with you on hour+ long runs if we knew what we were doing. Now what? we farm? Saryn's got survivals locked down. Life of Rio can use saryn to kill lvl 800 enemies without problems with the use of specs and the zenistar. These games play themselves now.

What Mirage Knight is saying is that this may happen with Wu Kong. In a co op game, he will make other warframes useless by making him too good. Pablo has a gift for making reworks, I can't deny that. But if you're making a game there are rules to follow. YOU don't decide when a frame gets reworked just by saying eh nah I don't feel like it today. It's work, it's a job. You keep balance. even then his reworks only seem to make work for other members of DE. Even in some cases throwing DE under the bus because if Pablo isn't the rework guy, then we all quiver in fear, hell maybe even DE is nervous to rework their own frames now. There are reasons to fear both a DE rework and Pablo rework. One is obviously more preferable than the other. Wu Kong's rework can go three ways.

Follow the Pablo Brick Road                                  Balanced, Fresh, Unique, and New                               Ember's Thanksnerfing Dinner

yes this was short compared to the rant I was about to do. In all seriousness I do hope that we take the middle path. It feels like thats where were going but we could easily slip into the first or third option.

Banshee isn't all of a sudden irrelevant because saryn is the best aoe map clearer in the game. Her sound quake was always good but has never been the best at aoe clearing even before saryn's rework that title used to belong to mesa at any level above 30. And at any level below 30 ember before her nerf was just as good. 

Also banshee being underused now could be solved if we ever have a reason to do high level content. Banshee allows for the highest damage buff for herself and teammates but no one cares about it because going to high levels is useless. If going to high levels and organizing team comps ever becomes important then she'll see much more use. This isn't a saryn issue it's a difficulty issue

Frames like banshee aren't all of a sudden complete trash because saryn became a great frame. These frames always needed tweaks and changes that they've yet to get as others got better and better. There's no need to nerf saryn when you can just buff banshee and make content where she matters.

What Mirage Knight is saying is that this may happen with Wu Kong. In a co op game, he will make other warframes useless by making him too good. 

I would #*!%ing love this

Banshee isn't all of a sudden irrelevant because saryn is the best aoe map clearer in the game. Her sound quake was always good but has never been the best at aoe clearing even before saryn's rework that title used to belong to mesa at any level above 30. And at any level below 30 ember before her nerf was just as good. 

Also banshee being underused now could be solved if we ever have a reason to do high level content.

I'd love to debate this with you. I honestly would. I have so many reasons why saryn's made banshee and other warframes pointless but this is a topic about Wu Kong so i'm not going to put my points here. I've already derailed the convo enough.

If you would love this, then you're obviously on the side where warframes should be demigods. That's fine, your opinion is your own. Just saying I disagree for X and Y reasons. Lets leave it there. DE picks whether or not this happens. Though the way you said that makes you sound kinda rude. You want Wu Kong to make other frames irrelevent? why?

b/c A. it would mean wukong is a good frame and
b. it would mean DE has a reason to look at frames made irrelevant by him and rework them
