One more thing Wukong needs

Recommended Posts

sigh

Ok. This has been on my mind since I've crafted Wukong and I need to address this in the most unnecessarily long way possible.

His name is Wukong. You're not even trying to refer to Sun Wukong, his name is literally, Wukong.

Why is his goddamn hell is his staffed called "Iron Staff", of all the names you could think of, "Iron Staff". Please think about how stupid that name is for any weapon in a game of space demigod controlled by void demons.

Of the Sun Wukong mythos, Wukong's signature staff is named Ruyi Jingu Bang. There is nothing to even hesitate about if you have to ask yourself "what should we name this staff weapon on our warframe called Wukong".

Please just for the love of Kars just rename his staff to Ruyi Jingu Bang.

And no I'm not going to complain about the rework. Go home if you wanted to roast some fools and stumbled in here.

Too long to type. Iron Staff is much shorter.

because iron staff is made of iron of stick with 2 lightsaber top and bottom blade and its staff, what a creative name DE

sorry but i cant even pronounce it right "ruyi jingu bang" sound like Ra~ ya~ jen~ "gay~" bang~  

but same time i kind of like that name but i really doubt megan or reb can say it right how its written in chinese mythology imo.

Makes sense, and the name you suggest sounds much nicer than "iron staff".

Too long. It's true to the mythology, but I feel like the name of the ability is fine how it is.

It's a long tradition of taking names from other cultures and making them the least closest thing to the reverencethey were taken from.

Look at Yu-Gi-Oh cards for a reference to this-

"We are going to put in 3 Egyptian gods intou our game as somw of the most powerful cards ever."

"We should change the names since we change everything else when we bring it to the population outside of Japan. How about we change one of the cards names to a guy that no one in the world will know who he is and make him be worshipped as a result? Worked for Jesus..."

"And I got the perfect name....Slifer. it's a guy I owe $20 bucks to at some company."

"LETS DO IT!!!!"

Good points. More connections to the origin story would be nice.

Iron staff, though, DOES fit in with the kinds of translated names that are in western dubs of Kung Fu movies.

All Wu Kong needs now is a Flying Guilotine.

Ruyi Jingu Bang is actually a Staff/Cudgel made out of iron though, so it's entirely relevant.

If you really want to be more relevant, might as well rename it as 'Iron Pillar' if you think the Romanization of the original name's too difficult to pronounce.

Go all the way, "Iron Anchor".

Then I can play that one Alestorm song that I dare not link here for fear of a warning point whilst I club people to death.

Or just let us rename it (and the rest of exalted weapons) like we can already do with melee and secondaries ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sorry OP, but as a long time Wukong player (not a "main," because I don't think that concept applies well in WF), I want to hijack your thread.

What does Wukong really need (which was woefully neglected with the rework)?

***NEW SOUNDS***

Please.... Please.... they're awful.... especially the hitting/striking sound of Ruyi Jingu Bang.

Make that song play automatically when you bash people to death with the Iron Anchor.

also make it impossible to mute

To keep it English... How about "The Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod"?

It's not the staff for one thing.  Being that its in a far distant fictional future and is a warframe reinvention of the mythos of the monkey king and not the actuall monkey king, then it stands to reason that the staff would not be the staff either but just a power made to emulate it.  It's not a staff that grant's power but a power that grant's you a staff, woohoo.

This is what happens when someone is incredibly desperate to complain about something.
