Hello, Stuke here again. This will be my second guide I released on SmiteFire. This guide will help you play Sun Wukong, the Monkey King and main character of the Chinese Epic, Journey to the West. Note: you don't have to follow this guide to the smallest detail, these are suggestions on how to play Sun Wukong. I encourage you to look at the comment section below and see other suggestions.
- High Defense
Wukong needs his abilities like The Magic Cudgel or 72 Transformations to be a threat to the enemy team, and to do that you need to build with that play style in mind. Power, protection, and CDR is the route you want to go with Sun to make sure you can not only do well in lane but also during a team fight.
Like all the other warriors, his build could change drastically depending on what role you're in as well as you want to sport more damage if you are in the Jungle or invest into defensive items if you're the Support.
- Sun Wukong is a Bully.
Use his abilities to constantly deal damage from a safe distance and farm just as effectively while having a viable escape plan makes him a difficult opponent in the right hands.
- Drop your clone in enemy lines.
When inside the area of an enemy tower and your ultimate, Somersault Cloud, is ready, activate it when you have no minions and the tower will go for your clone, so you can continue to attack the enemy god inside the tower.
- Expand ****.
If your opponent tries to get away or hides in their tower, rush in close enough that The Magic Cudgel can hit them and claim the kill or to spook them into retreating even further.
- 72 Transformations is versatile.
Ox form can be used to start a fight or cause confusion in a fight because of the knock-up. Tiger form is very assassin like as you single out one target and stun then and following up that with some basic attacks or abilities for the finisher. Finally, Eagle form is for either getting away, getting into the fight, reaching an objective point, or chasing down a target.
- The Wukong Combo:
72 Transformations -> Master’s Will -> The Magic Cudgel
Stun with tiger form from 72 Transformations, slow and damage them with master’s Will, then smack them with The Magic Cudgel if they try to get away then pop your ult and land on them to repeat the process until target is dead.
In Summary, Sun Wukong is a very flexible god with multiple abilities that makes him a Jack of Trades. Sun can arguably be the best warrior in Smite and is one of the most aggressive warriors that can stay in the battle longer than any other god so far. Sun Wukong is one of my favorite warriors in Smite hands down and nothing can change that. Remember to get into any fight when you know you can take it, always have your abilities at the ready, remember to Bird of Nope your way out of death, and show them the might of the Great Sage, Equal of Heaven.
