Official Summary[edit | edit source]

Official Rating Summary[edit | edit source]
Wu is a weird build, with high attack and decent mobility, but questionable stats otherwise. He is very much a one on one hero, though (see strategy below for a more indepth explanation of why).
Summary[edit | edit source]
Wu is a karate frog. A frog that does karate.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Wu is an interesting hero. Like Tripp and Tyto the Swift, he can be considered a fast attacking assassin type, but he doesn't have the survivability or the extensibility to mess about in the backfield for too long. What he is great at, however, is one on one strikes, as his skill rotation can pretty much dominate all but the tankiest of heroes. Accordingly, Wu is best used hanging just outside of combat, waiting for a hero to wander outside the fray for a quick and easy kill.
Protect Wu, because he's somewhat fragile, at least in group situations. Plan your encounters, and you'll find yourself dominating using Wu in no time flat.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- Splash Kick is your best escape skill, so if you at all feel cornered or anything, use it immediately.
- Manage your Stamina - if you don't, you're going to be down and out pretty immediately.
- Don't depend on LMB to do your damage, as it's a very low damage attack.
- Use RMB to knock enemies in the air and chain attacks. This is also a great push and area negation tactic.
