Ah Wu, the original Titan specialist. Since been eclipsed by others, but he’s still the most accessible one - anyone who only has him as a Titan specialist should keep him for the moment!

Plus still the “time to throw a Hail Mary pass” (to use an American football term) in wars where the 6th (or whichever) team doesn’t have much of a chance, so you hope to fire Wu Kong’s buff and pray for a tile cascade


In the early days he helped me immensely with events, ones otherwise impossible. So for new players, you should definitely consider him, and you might want more than one copy for mythic titans


The only heroes with less use in my rostwr than Wu Kong is the little gjost chick from season 2 and Mok-Arr.

I tried him when i first started the game as he was an early four star pick up and absolutely despised the misses. He was quickly benched and never used again.

I heard that there are people who love him and use him all the time or hate him and don’t even want to say his name. I don’t know if that’s true, but I’m definitely in the latter group. I tried to use him to see his value, but the misses are awful. I really want his costume, because I haven’t used him for a very long time and I won’t.
