Despite the recent nerfs to monkey king he is still creating havoc throughout the meta, and many people are asking why. The reason that monkey king is still as powerful as he are as follow
- his incredible range
- jingu mastery
- a good form of movement as well as initiation.
Now normally this wouldn’t actually be too much of a problem, however with the addition of Echo Sabre It’s just too easy for monkey king to get all 4 stacks of jingu mastery. With boundless strike and the relatively inexpensive and easy to built up to Echo Sabre he already has 3 stacks of the 4 that he needs before a fight as even started, and because of this he’s still quite powerful even with boundless strike doing less damage. I think that the way to fix this problem would be to make jingu mastery take 6 hits instead of 4 because if it takes 6 hits then its at least a challenge to get your incredibly powerful jingu mastery buff.
