Dev Workshop: Revisiting Wukong


Recommended Posts

Truthfully i just use wukong to be godlike with my arcane avengers and smack things with my melee. Im not liking the defy changes at all atm. This just killed my whole playstyle. Wukong basically the only frame in the game who can effectively use arcane avengers 100% of the time with no problems at any level.

This looks pretty solid actualy. I'd comment on the changes before they go in but that doesnt seem like a wise move. I'll wait until after the changes drop to give feedback and hopefully needed tweaks can be made then.

 

*edit*

 

Defy in its current form is a broken 1-trick-pony ability. Cloudwalker is a joke currently, iron jab is essentially useless, his 4 is also a mobile meme. Though he will no longer have defy, having a clone with boosted damage you can send after a target, a better cloudwalker that could actually be useful in spy missions that doesnt feel like a glaciar receeding, and a potentially better version of primal fury which doesnt take a few hundred kills to actually start working like an exalted weapon should be a good improvement.

 

His passive sounds a lot like Defy currently but not an infinite unkillable state. To those saying he's ruined as a result of no longer having Defy, like, do you even Inaros bro? If you crutched Wukong on Defy when the going got tough then I hate to say it, but its time to git gud. ...I feel dirty saying that.

And have you realized Inaros is useless for lvl 100 sorties like bruv I use wukong as a survival frame for sortie love him as a support for my friends who try new stuff also defy a 1 trick pony that’s for the wukong players who haven’t been kill five times in a matter of 2 minutes say do you know how hard it really is to not lose your life on wukong he has a limited amount of lives before he is dead it’s not god mode if you sit take damage and never reset his defy but back to Inaros I barely with a tank efficiency build Inaros can play lvl 50 content I’d say Inaros is what needs wither a buff or rework as his little 4 that gives a way to survive isn’t good enough please replace Inaros with Mr.Op tank rhino who thanks to the iron skin ability where he can take his 1-2 second pre application damage onto his iron skin when you activated it so in truth haven’t seen Inaros be useful for a team or solo other than stunning things sorry about no punctuation I feel this is best delivered as trash as possible I feel that defy is fine with is immortality field but needs to be more active like instead of taking it away and being a active-time-release built dps to a activate-build dps-die/lose a life-explode- still active-repeat 2 more then reset which will make him be deemed as a nyx type tank release but restricted by his health, shield, and immortal time so he is a moving nuke something like a bl2 nova shield ya know but I feel everything else is mostly good wish cloud walker which I use for escape to be in a place to recast the defy also the Inaros thing you don’t have to take to heart just feel he needed more help than wukong for now

Yup. How this ability will work at high levels: 

 

you get shot a few times. So now you activate your 2, heal some, deal paltry damage cuz reflection is a joke, then the ability ends. Alright, the enemies that were shooting you are still there, still shooting you. So you have to use your 2 again. Rinse and repeat, the enemies are not CC’d not killed. 

 

The old Defy let you just not die, but gives the ability for you to actually retaliate. It was boring and uninteresting, but it did its job.

 

Alternatively, like most high level players with double Magus Arcanes, you spam 5 a bunch which gives you invuln frames, maybe you dash to safety, and now you’re also healed to full. Costs 0 energy, is super fast, gives you an escape. Again: why would you use the Newkong’s 2?

Mhm... so this could be saved changing the ability a little. Instead of gathering damage and reflecting it every enemy that damage Wukong during the inv/taunt is then blinded (or another form of cc) for x duration. So you could retaliate and have some sort of utility for the team. Uhh, to create synergy with the kit they could even add a Wukong only buff, enemies that hit Wukong during 3 are also exposed to Wukong' (only), as he is enraged with them, and deals x% more damage with his 4. Would be intersting!

I'm liking these changes so far!

A) Having the clone be able to target attack is awesome!

B) Healing cloud is great. Are you removing the proposed crit buff?

C) Now I like defy better. I never was a fan of the never dying as that promoted some lazy players. Think and move to survive!

D) Primal Fury update spunds like exactly what I've waited on! Long range, scaling, clone interactions...really nice job folks!

I wukong defy as it is because at any level no matter if it's 1 or 9999 u kno u guaranteed to be ok. I play a lot of dynasty warriors and games like that. Wukong is the only frame i feel that have that real dynasty warriors vibe to it with his defy. No one is using melee against a lvl 1000+ face tanking everything with confidence of coming out alive except Wukong and nidus if you can maintain stacks. To the people who think they "inaros" can do this, he cant.

  • Primal Forces: Triple elemental damage for 60 seconds
  •  

i love it and it sounds good but am afraid it can be exploited by some players  ...like during tough boss fight a player will let the boss kill him to trigger the passive so now he will have x3 dmg on all his weapons and now he can kill him fast ... 60 sec buff duration is really big time ...ppl can kill orb spider in few minutes now with this passive the fight can be done in ~1 minute 

can you imagine rubico prime with godly riven + 3x dmg buff for 60sec ... yep kinda OP ... and trust me we dont need another chroma character that MUST be brought to any boss fight

Except you can't control whether you get that or Heavenly Cloak instead, you may not even get it out of the 3 chances you have per mission, it only lasts 60 seconds and again, you only have 3 buffs per mission. Even if you die for real, it sounds like your passive will not refresh for another 3 chances.

Buffing it's damage, status chance and giving it slash damage makes absolutely no sense to me to be honest. It does more than enough damage already, and how exactly is a stick going to do slash damage?

Internal bleeding no doubt, bone fragments/pipes sticking out of your skin, marrow sipping into the blood stream, kidney's rupturing, lungs collapsing and so on. I'd say it is finaly a step in the right direction for the game since slash damage is just another name for bleeding damage in the game. All weapons should have the chance to cause bleeding and it is quite silly that a hammer the size of Fragor has less bleeding potential than a meat cleaver or a dagger. If things were correct the Fragor would have high slash damage due to the internal bleeding it can cause. But na, it has impact damage, that slightly staggers an enemy when you hit him in the head. Such logic, much wow.

Passives... I don't think anyone likes the rng nature of the smeeta's buffs so DE sticks the same function on to a warframe instead...

Hello! It is I, one of the smeeta kavat fans, here to say that some of us do enjoy the smeeta 🙂 that is all. And considering all five of the possible passives cheat death (and you're guaranteed three per mission), there is way less RNG involved compared to the smeeta.

Imma say this now, wukong is a melee frame... How long u think he gonna last actually meleeing?? He's gonna insta die the moment his invulnerability turns off an hr in mot. You ever tried a melee build on mot with chroma? That armor only going to help until u start getting insta shredded... Reason why i dont use wukong over valkyr now. I can do a max power str health armor warcry build. Only going to last but so long until things start shredding her like paper.

Sounds good, better at least.

The passive RNG is dumb in my opinion though, nobody wants RNG while loading into a mission. 

Will see how it plays out.

Honestly we already deal with that often when dealing with pet precepts, i would actually welcome having a more interesting passive, especially when if i recall how i read that, Wukong basically gets 3 invulnerability moments when he is about to die and he gets a rather strong effect each time (triple elemental damage, double loot? Seriously?). Now if we can only have certain other very OLD warframes get some QoL changes next due to them becoming less useful and only have simplicity left to work with them.

Course now im more interested in what are the odds that wukong deluxe gets shipped out around the same time as wukong`s rework comes out to hype it up more.

Personal statement here->wukong without defy being a GM ability even if you try to improve the movement or “activity” will not be a wukong so basically keep defy improve everything else as you don’t need to change an ability that truly isn’t godmode as you can die even if it’s activated just sit in the middle of any group of enemies for 6 lives oh wait without recasting you can’t.

each time it trigger you have 1 out of 5 chances to get that buff < repeat that for 3 times .. so yah its not that low chance 

60 sec is more than enough to kill the toughest bosses we have now .. orb mother, the 3 eid and the flydlon in gas city ...yes you still have RNG to get the buff but its still OP...i would rather ask for immunity to status for 60sec or +% str to him and to allies or DOT to all enemies for x sec

Celestial Twin:

Looks fine but it depends on the answer to the following,

  • Does the clone get a copy of your weapons with ALL the mods?

If it does not then I don't think it will be a very good ability. It can't even be a good distraction because it will probably get itself killed very fast.

 

I agree but if it will work like this there will be another frame with a severely underpowered ability. Loki's decoy is supposed to attract attention but it gets one shotted by a condroc yawning in its general direction and it happens so quickly that as soon as you cast it won't be able to attract more than the first enemy that gets its aggro for more than a split second.

I agree with you, just pointing out that new monkey king god first skill makes loki's almost completely useless (as it can be deployed further away, big deal as it won't last more than a second anyway)

I mean it looks better than current wukong overall, but I feel it doesn't emphasize the best known wukong attributes, having a stick that can very variably change size and being immortal. 

That said, that passive should be added to the new defy and add a passive that's more like tek assault. I guess his staff size can still be affected by range mods.

Pretty much the only pet i use these days since Kubrows, outside of helminth charger has barely any thing noteworthy, Carrier covers most of the use of Sentinels and Moas fall under gimmick pet with it being only slightly above kubrows in my honest opinion. Wonder when we will get another pet revamp to make kubrows stand out just as much as a kavat Cat`s eye or Charm.

As for Wukong, also kind of nice the passive picks out 3 of the 5 instead of say, giving 3 instances of one of the random effects and does not say which one till you proc the effect itself.

Cloud Walker still epicly underwhelming and a completely missed opportunity to make something really cool based on his lore instead of this trash.

Who would use Wukong for Spy/stealth missions anyway when you can just pick Ivara, Loki or Ash for it?

Cloud Walker should either be switched for a COMPLETELY different ability, or change it so you can fly around on top of the cloud or something like in Wukongs lore. Like, make the cloud into a hoverboard kind of thing that can be used ANYWHERE while he can also still attack while on it etc.

Alright. Some of this is gold. 

Two things in perticuler are not. 

No more exstendo stick and deft change. 

Your lack of spesification on the defy duration is actually hauntingly terrifying because no info normally means it's getting hit hard in game devs terminology. 

If this current reworked defy has a base duration of 30 seconds or so  and you can move after the activation I could get behind it without much problem, pluck the hp regen from cloud walk and put it next to the armour buff. Than add an effect like twin gets higher damage or flat damage reduction while your in cloud walk or even you get a second twin . At this rate your going to promote staying in cloud walk for longer periods of time because if so he restores his health, It's kind of counter intuitive to the more active and interactive play style you are looking for if the health return is added to cloud walker. 

Another option would be to leave defy as it is but make it duration based and add the new cancle melee to it on time out to make it function like nezha's halo 

As for the exalted stick it doeent need the removal of the range scaling Its base range was was hard Done by the fact that range as a warframe stat effected its base range. 

Leave its range uneffectedby by warframe range, increase its base range and still having the scaling range would work just fine. The scaling of your last exalted weapon was poor to say the least and I would hate to see it happen to my money man.  On that subject his exalted weapon isn't exactly steller but it's coverage more than made up for it. Your options would be to follow the as bove suggestion without a damage tune or increase the damage of the staff. Also his combos felt rather lack luster and unfun so I hope you guys manage to make a new set of stances for the rework to stick. Thanks!

Overall, I'm looking forward to the changes I think!

If I have any feedback to give, it is going to be related to Defy. Part of me wants to see total durations (such as how long we can taunt to build armor for example and how long the armor buff lasts). Secondly, will the staff attack at the end use similar base statistics to the Iron Staff (mostly thinking status here, but I won't say no to crit either). Finally, I also will need to feel out how much the slow affects him. As this ability is going to be the one most people resist changes to, I'm hoping the new version feels good enough to assuage people's fears.

I, for one, can't wait to try it when it reaches console however 🙂

I want to kno if i'm facing level 500+ enemies the moment defy invulnerability ends will i be dead?? Most likely because armor, adaptation, arcane guardian & grace wont save most frames now. A slash proc at that level might just 1shot anyway. Yea this defy change aint it.

You've proved me right when I spoke of people using his 1-trick as a crutch. Thanks for admitting you use his invincibility as a crutch because you can't mod other frames.

So far this seems okay I need to see the stat boost to iron staff and know the potential range of the staff after mods. It really needs to be the farthest reaching melee imo or trash it. I still don't care for the clone because AI suck but I guess its better then what we had. 

As for the juicy bit. Defy changing is welcomed but I'm concerned again with range. With the increase to his channeled drain it's going to be very hard to spec him to be better then his previous incarnations that just outright ignored range entirely and this ability potentially being a room clearer is something to be seen so far... ehh it's an okay rework. I can actually call it a rework unlike the atrocities done to frames like Titania and nyx... hydroid. But this mostly comes down to those stats and I really hope you gave a better speed boost to CW because it needs to be faster than parkour or itll be a pointless healing tech. Also why doesnt it heal allies?

No it didn't, it never has. This is misinformation plain and simple.

Boohoo I can't fight enemies that the game isn't actually designed around with Wukong anymore? I like an endurance run as much as the next guy, but under no circumstances should anything in this game be balanced around them.

Making the ability more useful in relevant content, and less useful in irrelevant content is, curiously, a good thing.
