Number 1 Guide to Wukong Top
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. Ever since I started playing League of Legends, Wukong was my favorite champion. I just loved how much you can juke with him. Well this is my guide to the Monkey King, Wukong, I hope you enjoy!
These runes are basic attack damage runes and have proven to be very effective. Wukong does not need scaling Magic Resist because of his passive and Mercury Treads if used.
It is better that when playing Wukong your masteries are 9/21/0 because generally you don't but defensive items.
- Strong Burst Damage
- Can shred enemy's really quickly
- Works well together with Yasuo's Ultimate
- Great juke potential
- Snowballs really hard
- Awesome skins
- Still useful if falls off
- Harder for him to take out tanks than squishies
- Becomes focus if snowballing
- Fading out of the Top Lane meta
Stone Skin (Passive)-
Wukong's armor and magic resistance are increased by 4 / 6 / 8 for each visible nearby enemy champion.
Crushing Blow (Q)-
Wukong's next attack within the next 5 seconds deals bonus physical damage, gains 125 range (300 total range) and reduces the enemy's armor by 30% for 3 seconds.
ACTIVE: Wukong becomes stealthed for 1.5 seconds and leaves behind a decoy of himself.
DECOY: The decoy is uncontrollable and cannot move or attack. After 1.5 seconds, it will vanish, dealing magic damage in a radius of 175.
Nimbus Strike (E)-
Wukong dashes on a cloud toward a target enemy and sends out images to hit up to two more within 187.5 range of the target. Each enemy struck is dealt physical damage. Upon hitting his target, he gains an attack speed bonus for 4 seconds.
Wukong's staff grows outward as he spins around for up to 4 seconds, dealing physical damage per second to enemies around him and gaining a 5% move speed bonus per half second. Enemies are knocked up into the air the first time they are hit by the spin. Wukong cannot attack or use other basic abilities while spinning, but can deactivate it early.
The Black Cleaver is probably the most important item on wukong considering that his Q already shreds armor and the extra armor shred from the Black Cleaver passive can really destroy an enemy quickly. Last Whisper makes your abilities really hurt so pick this up Early to Mid Game. The Ravenous Hydra active is very useful for wave clear and can actually do damage to jungle creeps so that you can hop to the and get away. The Bloodthirster is good for its stacking damage and extra life steal which can help you late game.
Start with your Q so you can trade early and then max your E as it has the most damage output. You want to get your W just so you can lose minion aggro and can get away from ganks. One tip I can give you is that when you run away, you can hold down S and it will look as if you decoy'd and then you can decoy to get out.
