Wu Kong has been a MOBA tradition for a long time. I've no idea where he originally came from, but almost every MOBA has him. It turns out to be one of my favorite heroes and whether it's in SMITE or League of Legends, he's always tons of fun to play. Epic have decided to jump in on the act and I have to say, it's probably the best version of Wu Kong I've ever seen. It puts SMITE's version to shame. Check out the video below as well as the official blog post. 

Wukong (Order/Corruption) and Feng Mao used to be traveling companions. When Wukong became too much to handle, Feng trapped him in a cave and left. 100 years later, Wukong is free and on his way to Agora to resume aggravating Feng Mao. Wukong is a deadly and elusive melee carry, capable of farming faster than any other Hero.

  • Control Aggression (E/Circle) - Passive: grants bonus CP to a random minion in the area upon last hit. Toggle: the Monkey King swaps between offensive and defensive stance. DEF - Defensive stance, OFF - Offensive stance.
  • Staff of Legend (RMB/R1) - Extends his polearm. OFF: your polearm deals damage and pushes enemies back the length of the staff. DEF: Wukong plants his staff and launches himself into the air with a directional jump.
  • Cloudwalker (Q/Square) -  Passive: Grants the Monkey King a double jump (Spacebar/X). OFF: the jump will end with a slam into the ground which deals damage and slows enemies. DEF: he is able to walk on air following the double jump.
  • 84,000 Hairs (R/Triangle) - When Wukong strikes a minion, hero or structure he will create a clone of himself. The clone cannot move and deals damage in a radius around itself. Damage dealt by clones is based on a percentage of Wukong’s damage.

As always, all Heroes in Paragon are free, so jump in as Wukong on Tuesday, June 6th. If you can't wait to get your Paragon fix, you don't have to - Paragon is free and in Open Beta, so you can download and play today.
