How high to ascend wu?

Wu is responsible for the greatest titan hits in the game. He’s also responsible for a little inconsistency. Sometimes it feels like every tile misses! That’s why it’s gamblers stance. But he embodies this game perfectly. He’s the perfect mascot. Sometimes things are great sometimes things aren’t so great. By when it’s great, it can be amazing. He offers you that chance at amazing.


Li Xiu is a good hero to level as well and may very well be your best choice right now.

Wu is one of the game’s greatest heroes. However… u can go a long, long way into the game without him.

It could be a better decision to keep levelling Li right now.

If you don’t mind sharing who your other heroes are (even 3*). I don’t mind continuing to chat to you about whether its the right time to switch to Wu or not.

Just type a list of ur main heroes, no need to do screen shots

wu part leveled is useless , can be devastating fully done & can be useless fully done … IMO , get it done asap for titans , if you are not in an alliance its a mute question .

Max him, no doubt about it :wink:


Here is my roster. No particular order other than what’s been working somewhat in raids, AWs and Titans. As I say just starting to get serious. Previously levelling heroes with no real plan (other than a strong rainbow, from what I’ve read I might have to get over the “hero missing” message) I do appreciate the input. Thank ya muchly.

Cyprian 3,18
Scarlett 3,11
LiXiu 2,47
Karil 3,50
Kiril 3,40
Oberon 3,50

At least one Wu Kong to 4* 4.70 due to his high attack stat and low toughness ( glass cannon, see Notes) and only hero in any color with Gambler’s Stance unlike Ramming Pulverizer or 4* with 42% heal


Before war:

Wu Kong 4* 4.70

With war:

Wu Kong 4* 4.70
2nd Wu Kong 3.60

With rumored ability to increase hero stats to defeat tougher titans:

Wu Kong 4* 4.70
2nd Wu Kong 4* 4.70
?? 3rd Wu Kong 4* 3.60 or 4.70

OK. Thanks. There may be time zone differences, but let’s be patient with each other (I’m in Australia) Give me an hour or so and I’ll give u a considered response.

U have a great collection of heroes!

And there will be some amazing responses from very experienced players - you have already had at least three incredible players respond to your thread.

I’ll give u my opinion, and try to help you sort the good advice as well.

About to eat dinner now, so please bear with me!

Four incredible players lol


That’s some good info… never came across that post. Thank you.

Glass cannon :joy: that one cracks me up (pun intended) every time I read it.


No worries at all. I’d say there’s just a wee bit of a time difference. I’m in Canada, we’re a patient bunch though haha. Seemingly I’m like a lot of folks on here and stay up late lmao. Enjoy your dinner. Again many thanks.

No particular order


At least complete a team of rainbow 4*


No bias at all eh @Oracle83? :wink:

Let’s start by keeping this on topic. You should ascend Wu to 4/70 no doubt. But… I do not think that is your priority right now.

I’m sure others will point this out, but you already have a good rainbow 4* team:

Caedmon, Scarlett, Cyprian, Li Xiu, Kiril (play with the order, because Li is OK at centre as well)

That team alone will take u a long way into the game. I’d be surprised if u haven’t already worked that out considering how u are levelling.

So get those heroes as high as u can as a priority. Rigard is a standout 4* hero and should be levelled when u have resources.

This game is high in FOMO - don’t buy into that! Your current heroes are awesome and you will spend at least the next two to three months having enormous fun without getting any new heroes. Ignore your ‘inner voice’ saying that you ‘need’ more 4* or a 5*. U don’t. Not yet. U will. But not yet.

After levelling the above 4* heroes, my strong advice is to also build a strong base of 3* heroes. You will not regret this because they will help you on every aspect of the game: The Main Map(s), AW, Titans, Events, Quests, Farming.

For the moment, hang on to all of your three star heroes. But there are some that should forever stay at the current level, and other who are worth levelling to the max.

Here is my opinion on the ones that are worth levelling to the max, in addition to the ones that are already there like Nashgar & Bane:

Nature: Belith, Berden, Brienne,

Ice: Valen, Gunnar

Fire: Hawkmoon, (Nashgar)

Holy: Kailani, (Bane)

Dark: Balthazar, Tyrum, (I have no idea about Gill-Ra)

Do not level the other 3* beyond where they are until you know u want them (my guess is that they’ll remain untouched)

Once you have done that it time is to RELEASE WU (i.e. ascend him) You will by then have enough diversity and depth in your team to colour stack on titans, to allow u to fully appreciate the magic that is Wu.

If u ascend him now, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. Wu is only Wu, when Wu has the right friends to play with. He needs support in every element with colour stacking (FishDreams stands back for the flood of comments)

IMHO, Li and the 3* mentioned above, are better use of ur holy feeders for where u are at right now.


If u r not already in an alliance, then u should be. It’s the best way to learn.

There are plenty that would want some! with ur lineup of heroes.

I know our alliance would welcome u.

Did anybody already have given the advice to level Wu to the end as soon as you can?
Your alliance will be thankfull for that when you start using him in titan fights…


Well, you should level him as soon as possible till the end!
You will notice that he is very helpfull in titanfights!


Killer, hearing this makes me a lot more stoked on things. FOMO was definitely getting me. Now at least I have direction haha. Farming and feeding. Not just hoping TC20 provides.

Truthfully I’m stunned (good way) at how helpful and easy to read your response is @FishDreams. Thank you. Actually all the replies I’ve recieved have been very helpful as well.

I was getting confused at some threads that I managed to find. Getting my head twisted around some of the more technical things was driving me crazy but I suppose that comes with time.

I’m glad I’ve joined this community. Seems to be rare not to be flamed for being a newbie.


Thanks for the offer @FishDreams, I would be honored to join but at this time I am going to stay loyal to my current alliance. They’ve been good to me, have some heavy hitters (we can take 7* right now) and very laid back. That being said, if things change…

==Wu Kong at 4* 3.60 & 4* 4.70==

Some heroes are good, some suck but most are just okay.

To keep this on topic, since Wu Kong is a glass cannon, leveling him to 4* 4.70 without a rainbow team of good/ okay 4* 3.60 heroes to back him up, will decrease his effect.

I usually advice leveling a rainbow team of 3* heroes to 3* 3.50, then a rainbow team of 4* heroes to 4* 3.60. Both 3* 3.50 and 4* 3.60 are maximum with farmable ascension materials.

Then swap your 4* 3.60 yellow hero for your 3* 3.50 purple hero (linky, linky) when farming season 1 province 7 stage 7 ( s1-7-7) for least real world time used, ~8 recruits & rugged cloths.

Then swap your 4* 3.60 red for your 3* 3.50 green when farming season 1 province 8 stage 7 ( s1-8-7 ) to quickly fill your Wanted monsters mission chest for ascension item rolls & ~9 recruits.

==Teammates are your best resource==

Your play style and hero roster will change as you play. The best resource is a good alliance were you can ask specific questions about your hero roster from others with a similar play style.


Some of these are old, but a list of links, mostly involving 3*/4* heroes (linky, linky)


This is really old ( I need to update it ) but has the basic principals:
