League of Legends' Wukong rework is set to go live in Patch 10.6 after much anticipation.

Wukong has been a niche pick for quite some time. He hasn't been outstanding at one particular role and has fallen out of favor in the meta. These changes set to make him a strong bruiser, assassin or even jungler based on how he develops in players' hands.

"One of our primary goals of this update is to give Wukong more of that true trickster playstyle that it felt like he was missing. As a result, we're giving his combat pattern more versatility and ways to outplay his opponents," Riot Games said in the Patch 10.6 notes.
