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.
Hello and welcome to my guide. This is my first guide I have made so bear with me. Wukong is a dmg/dps champion who is a very good ganker and farmer. He is one of my favorite champs and one of the most fun champs. Wukong is Master Yi's pupil. Master Yi taught wukong all his skills and tricks to make him very powerful. Wukong also trained very hard to be one of the best champions in League of Legends. He is a Monkey with who is very talented and very very strong. I find this build to be very effective with all the damage and attack speed. While being squishy he can just regen his health with life steal. I have tried many other builds that I have made but they don;t seem to work quite as well as this one. I like to harass with Nimbus Strike, Crushing Blow, then Decoy to escape. I usually don't play that offensively until I get my Phantom Dancer.
Crushing Blow is a skill where Wukong's next attack will deal bonus damage and reduce their armour for a short time.
Decoy allows Wukong to go invisible for a short time while an image of him stays behind. After a short time it does AoE damage.
Nimbus Strike allows wukong to hit up to 3 champions or minions in a group.
Finally Cyclone allows Wukong to extend his stick and spin very fast while knicking enemies into the air and doing major amounts of damage.
The runes are pretty simple. Mark of Desolation will give you a lot of armour penetration before you get your Youmuu's Ghostblade. Seal of Resislience will give you armour for team fights. Greater Glyph of Warding will also give you help in team fights and it will be harder to get harassed if you are magic champions. Finally, Greater Quintessence of Vigor will help you after a fight and you need to regen it while chasing or running away or just regening it while killing minions.
Masteries is a really simple 21/0/9. I don't really need to get into it because if you see its all really damage based and to help your leveling and what not.
The skill sequence is pretty simple just try to max out your Crushing Blow first then max out Nimbus Strike. Finally you max out Decoy, and of course get Cyclone whenever possible.
Ghost and Exhaust work best although Ghost and ignite or Exhaust and Flash work well too. These summoner spells can be used very effectively. You can use Ghost to run away or catch to champions. Exhaust can slow someone chasing you, Slow someone running away from you, and Slowing someone attack speed to succesfully kill them.
When Wukong you must always be in a team fight. You will probobally be the most effective member, but I would not know your team comp. When going into a team fight try to use Nimbus Strike then follow up with Cyclone. That should make them go running if your whole team comes, although you could use Crushing Blow on the tank or someone important to lower their armour. If you are chasing someone just simply use Nimbus Strike and Crushing Blow, and then just auto attack the for the kill. When running away use Decoy then if you could head into the jungle to get away from them, but if you can't Simply go the other direction if there is not turrets or anything then on the farthest person away from you from the people chasing you use Nimbus Strike then run away.
Wukong is a very good farmer with his Nimbus Strike, Decoy, and Crushing Blow. While farming if there is a ranged champion such as ezreal trying to harass you just use Nimbus Strike on them, then use Crushing Blow, and Decoy to escape. Nimbus Strike is really good to use against minions because of the Attack Speed Buff you get from it.
Early game Wukong is a very good harasser. He owns with his Nimbus Strike for extra attack damage and crushing blow to own his enemies. He gets more fun late game but is quite fun early game also. I tend to farm a lot with early ganks as much as possible.
Late Game Ownage
Late game Wukong will absolutely tear through his enemies. With Nimbus Strike, Crushing Blow and Cyclone. You are basically unstoppable! It gets really fun late game with awesome Attack Damage and Attack Speed. Not to long before I made this build I got a penta kill at Baron Nasher. He is he most dangerous champion late game. I was experimenting with this build and thought why not do Baron Nasher solo ( I had all items ). His life steal just regens him easily while fighting Baron, and his attack spead just rips through him.
This guide was created by Monkeyfatzer. I made this guide all by myself with experimenting and trying new builds. I hope you liked my guide, and please favorite it, and also make any suggestions in the comment section and i'll be sure to look at them. This is one of the best builds I have ever used in my time in League of Legends and the best champion. I will be making more wukong builds and I am currently in the process of a jungle wukong.
