Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Wukong is a DPS champion the likes to jump into battle deal damage and get out before he ever receives damage.
You want to max out your E first because that is the most effective way to jump into battle and maxing that first will lower the cool down. Next you want to max out your Q because that is how you can lower there armor and deal more damage (this ability also works on towers). Next you want to max out your E because leveling that up does not increase the duration of the steal u only get more damage, and because it stacks with AP unlike all of his other abilities and always get your R when u can.
I like to start off with a Doran's Blade because it gives you more starting attack damage and health. i then try and get Boots of Swiftness that way i am able to get farther away from the enemy when i use Decoy. i then go for a phage because of the slow it gives when u auto attack. I then build that phage into a Trinity Force. After getting my Trinity Force i then go for a Bloodthirster for more life steal. I then build a Phantom Dancer for more attack and movement speed. I then build a Last Whisper because of the armor penetration and attack damage. Lastly i get a Black cleaver for more armor penetration. By late game even if the other team has armor u should have enough armor penetration for it to barley even matter making u unstoppable.
In the Plague Jungles, Kong ruled as king. He could wield a unique, natural form of magic and he was driven by zealous ambition. The Plague Jungles were the ideal setting for fostering his growth - he thrived on challenges and flourished in adversity. However, when he had surmounted every obstacle and defeated every opponent, he grew restless. Worried that there was nothing left to overcome, he sought counsel with the monkey sage who lived behind the Grand Waterfall. The sage told him a tale of hairless monkeys to the north who, with wits and strength, bent the world to their will. Kong was overjoyed at the prospect of such worthy competition, and he immediately set out to the north, hoping that the sage's story was true.
Traveling north, he crossed the Southern Wastes and then the Great Barrier. Unaware of the League, he arrived outside the Institute of War where he found Master Yi in meditation. Kong was eager to test the strength of these northern warriors, so he challenged Yi to a duel. Intrigued by Kong, Yi decided to humor him. Within moments of his first strike, Kong knew he was no match for Yi. To be the best, he would need a mentor. He asked Yi to take him as a pupil and to show him the wonders of the northern lands. In return, he would honor Yi by becoming the greatest warrior Runeterra had ever seen. Admiring his passion, Yi agreed, but only under the condition that Kong would one day teach the lessons of Wuju to a pupil of his own. In the spirit of this agreement, he renamed Kong ''Wukong'', and gave him a weapon suited to his unusual nature - an enchanted staff that the young Doran had crafted. The weapon was an unrivalled masterpiece. After rigorous training, Wukong joined the League of Legends to fulfill his promise and show the world the true power of Wuju.
''The first step to wisdom and greatness is realizing how little you know.''
