2) Meddler noted the Wukong changes were being reverted off the PBE for now:
"Should be fixed today. I pulled the Wukong update off the PBE build late last week but missed some stuff so there were some buggy interactions between old and new data in yesterday's build. 
For anyone wondering we are going ahead with the update, doesn't need further PBE testing at present though. Timeframe is dependent on when artists are available in particular which isn't clear yet."
