Wukong Build Guide by DinoCoth
Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello everyone! DinoCoth here and bringing you a guide forWuKong The Monkey King. In my opinion Wukong is currently my favorite champion to use. After a few months of using Wukong, I been trying out new builds to improve his playing style. To me I think this build is the best because it shows how WuKong will dominate in every game if you use him correctly.
9 Greater Mark Of Desolation
The reason that I choose Desolation runes is because of the armor penetration, without the armor penetration you wouldn't be able to do any good damage to the enemy team.
9 Greater Seal Of Resilience
Resilience runes are used because the extra armor grants Wukung more sustain in the lane and harder to take down. After all, he is a off-tank champion.
9 Greater Mark Of Shielding
In my items list, Force of Nature is at the end of the list. Without the proper runes for magic resist fighting a mage is useless early game, as they will quickly burst you down with their range.
3 Greater Quintessence of Desolation
As I said before, more armor penetration will let you be a greater threat to the enemy team.
OTHER SUMMONER SPELLS
Heal is a good summoner skill in early game, but closing in the mid game the spell isn't very helpful anymore.
Other Summoner Spells That You Can Get
Ignite I would switch out with Exhaust. If you are really desperate for First Blood, then pick this spell. Ignite can be used to reduce healing by 50% and to pick up kills in sticky situations.
Ghost is a pretty good spell if your not a Flash fan. I like the movement speed but I still prefer Flash.
Teleport: Get Teleport if you're solo top. If you are getting this spell I would replace it with Flash.
Clairvoyance: This spell is mostly for supports type champions.
Summoner Spells that isn't very helpful
Smite : You can pick this spell but this guide/build isn't for jungling. Jungling Wukong will be added later on.
I like to use 9/21/0 because Wukong needs the extra damage and cool down(Ult). 21 points in defense because he is the off-tank for the team. Damage and Defensive masteries working together will make Wukung a very good off tank to play as.
pictures will be added later on.
I takedorans blade because it gives you about 80 Health and Life Steal. I would go for Boots of Speed + 3 health potion for speed and health to regenerate over time, but I prefer the damage over speed.
On my first trip back to my base, I would pick upThe Brutalizer because of the damage,penetration and 10% cool downs. If you don't have enough money for it I would get boots of speed for movement speed then upgrade it to mercurys treads
On my second trip back to my wonderful base I would pick upGiant Belt if you have enough gold , if not pick up regrowth pendant
THRID RECALL:: Thrid Trip ( closing in to mid game) I would pick up thewarmogs armor for the health (ofc off tank must need warmogs). If you cannot get the whole thing get the ruby crystal
Next item I would aim forPhage because of the slow and HP which later converts to damage with Impaler.
Next Item is the Imapaler because Wukong needs damage fromwarmogs and Phage to fully dominate in the game. Also more armor makes a good off tank too!
Finally aim forFoN ( Force Of Nature) because of the AMAZING health regeneration 0.35% of your current health, with warmogs and Frozen Mallet the health regeneration is about 25-30 HP per second. After this item you can easily deflect theMadred's BloodRazor and NEVER have to go back for health.Frozen Mallet before FoN because you still need the extra health for FoN's health regeneration + the damage.
After this build you can EASILY get a penta kill without worrying about dying.
Other Items that may be considered
Wriggles Lantern (Early game)
Details will be added later on.
Overall, if you know how to play Wukong mechanic-wise and use this build, you will completely dominate in everygame.
I WOULD LIKE TO ADD MORE INFORMATION LATER ON IN THE FUTURE (NEED TIME)
