SITUATIONAL REPLACES HYDRA
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.
SMITE TOP??? ARE YOU A TROLL???
No it's so not troll. Smite is like the better ignite with more utility. It's as good as the ignite damage when you get the stalker's blade. Take this into consideration. During ignite, you can use a pot which basically reduces the ignite damage by 75 ( Pot heals for 150/2"50% regen cut"). Ignite at lvl 1 does 70 damage, reduced to nothing due to pot ticks since it is a Damage over Time. Smite at lvl 1 does 26 damage at the instant not allowing any pot ticks.
Also, if you come out of a 1 for 1 trade, both top laners burning both summs, you'll come back to lane with smite since theres 2 stacks and low cd. Meaning you will be head in a fight by ignite damage.
The only thing about smite is that it lacks is the ability to cut down regen by 50%. But other than that, look at all the utility running smite can bring for you.
1. It steals MOVEMENT SPEED. You take 20% and u slow them 20%. STACK THIS WITH YOMUUS, TFORCE, AND YOUR ULT, WHO'S GOING RO RUN FROM YOU????
2. It does INSTANT TRUE DAMAGE. Do you always hate it when it take awhile for ignite to finish them off? WAIT NO LONGER, SMITE THEM DOWN ALL THE WAY DOWN IN A SECOND WHILE GETTING A 20% MOVEMENT SPEED BONUS SO YOU CAN RUN.
3. Smite Utilities from smiting jungle camps:
Is your lane poking you down so much??? YOU CAN SMITE THE FROG FOR POISONOUS SKIN RETURNING DAMAGE LIKE THORN MAIL.
Need hp and mp?? YOU CAN SMITE THE NEAREST BLUE OR RED FOR A NICE HEAL TO SUSTAIN IN LANE.
Scared for a gank? SMITE THE WOLF TO STOP GANKS. IT GOES TO THE NEAREST ENEMY CHAMP AND SPOTS THEM GRANTING VISION SO U CAN BE PREPARED.
4. NEED TO CLEAR THEM PESKY WARDS?? SMITE THE DAM BIRD AND YOU GET ORACLES. OP. THEN YOU
JUST WAIT IN A BUSH, DASH ONTO THEM, GIVE IT A QUICK Q, AND ULT. FACE CHECK OP
5. 2 SMITES? 1 JUNGLE 1 TOP = 2K TRUE DAAMGE. WHOS GANNA STEAL BARON AND DRAGON FROM YOU???
6. IT'S LOWER COOLDOWN THAN IGNITE, SO YOU CAN JUST POKE THEM WITH IT TECHINCALLY CUHZ ITS SO LOW. YOU WAIT TILL YOU HAVE 2 CHARGES THEN ITS JUST 15 SECONDS PART OF TRUE DAMAGE. TRUE DAMAGE.
7. HAVE YOU SEEN SMITING PEOPLE FOR A KILL?? ITS FREAKEN HILARIOUS. MAKE THEM TILT WHILE YOU ENJOY THAT GAME WITH A SMILE EVERY SMITE DOWN.
WHY NOT PLAY JUNGLE WU??
HIS CLEAR TIME AND SUSTAIN IS NOT GREAT. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO KILL ONLY TOAD AND BLUE ON FIRST BACK. YOU'LL END UP BEING A BEHIND THE ENEMY JUNGLER AND YOU WONT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE ITEMS QUICK ENOUGH SO YOU'LL END UP FARMING JUNG ALL GAME. ALSO IF U JUNGLE WUKONG, YOU HAVE TO MAX E OUT FIRST, MEANING LESS ARMOR SHRED FROM Q.
WHY DOES THAT ITEMIZATION WORK???
KK STARTING FROM THE RUNES WITH 19 FLAT ARMOR PENT. THEN WITH THE MASTERIES GIVING 6% MORE ARMOR PENT. GET THE ITEMS IM TELLING YOU TO GET AND BY THE TIME YOU REACH YOUR BLACK CLEAVER'S BRUTALIZER, YOU WILL HAVE 59 FLAT ARMOR. THIS IS THE SAME TIME WHERE ADCS, SQUISHY SUPPORTS, APCS, CARRY JUNGLERS ALL HAVE AT THE MOST 60-80 ARMOR. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN??? TRUE FREAKEN DAMAGE. TELL ME A WUKONG BUILD THAT HAS MORE AD THAN THIS BUILD THAT CAN DEAL TRUE DAMAGE.
LETS COUNT IT UP. 59 FLAT PENT FROM ITEMS AND RUNES. BLACK CLEAVER 25%, LAST WHISPER 35%, MASTERIES 6%. DONT FORGET WUKONG'S Q SHREDS ARMOR AT 30%
DO SOME MATH. LETS SAY THIS GUY UNFORTUNATELY GOT ARMOR. LET'S SAY 300 BECAUSE 300 ARMOR IS ANNOYING.
300 X .75 ( BLACK CLEAVER "1 - .25") = 225 - 59 ( FLAT PENT) = 166 X .61( LW + MASTERIES I DONT KNOW WHY IT DOESN'T GO TO 41% BUT IT STAYS AT 39% ON TAB)= 101.26 x .70 ( WUKONG Q)= 70.8. WOW YOU REDUCED 300 ARMOR TO 70.8. THATS HOW OP THIS IS.
BUT YOUR GOAL ISNT TO KILL TANKS, YOU MELT THE APC, SQUISHY SUPPORTS, CARRY JUNGLERS, AND ADC BECAUSE THEY DONT EVEN HAVE MORE THAN 100 ARMOR AT TIMES. ANYTHING LESS THAN 150 ARMOR = TRUE DAMAGE MEANING YOU READ HOW MUCH YOUR SKILL DOES, IT WILL DO THAT MUCH DAMAGE. YOU CRIT WITH SHEEN Q WITH THAT END GAME BUILD, THEY WILL FEEL ALL 1.5K DAMAGE. YOUR SPIN WILL DO 3K TRUE DAMAGE AT MAX DAMAGE PER UNIT.
YOU DONT NEED BOOTS, YOMUUS, ULT, BLUE SMITE IS ALOT OF MS. ALSO TFORCE.
Won't i be too squishy???
OF COURSE YOU ARE, YOURE A GLASS CANNON. BUT NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO DUEL YOU. THEY GO ON U LIKE ZED, YOU JUST POP YOUR ULT AND HE WILL FEEL THAT 3K TRUE DAMAGE. IF YOU THINK YOURE TOO SQUISHY GET THE SITUATIONAL ITEMS THAT REPLACE HYDRA. MAW FOR AP HEAVY TEAMS, RANDUINS FOR AD HEAVY TEAMS. RADIUNS IS OP CUHZ YOU SLOW THEM, U SMITE THEM, YOU YOMUUS, AND U ULT, NO ONE IS GOING TO RUN FROM U. THAT TORNADO WILL HIT HIM ITS INEVITABLE. BURN YOUR FLASHES GUYS CUHZ ITS COMING.
BUT IN THE LATE GAME PHASE AT LVL 18, WUKONG HAS 84 BASE ARMOR AND 53 BASE MR. THE RUNES WILL GIVE 27 ARMOR AND MR. HIS PASSIVE GIVES 8 ARMOR AND MR FOR EACH ENEMY CHAMP NEAR BY GIVING AT MAX 40. YOU WILL END UP WITH 151 ARMOR AND 120 MR MEANING A BIT TANKY.
Won't i lose lane early?
In some match ups, yes it will occur. Fiora, Renekton will always wreck you. So just stay under the turret and just farm. YOUR LATE GAME WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER THAN FIORA SO JUST BE PATIENT.
Don't annoy the jungler for ganks because that is annoying. Just see if he is coming. You see him coming, time it well and all in the top laner. Instant e q r will give the jungler time to come and help with the kill. Not to mentions with two smites that slows 20%, it's a guaranteed kill.
IF YOURE SCARED AND YOU KNOW YOU CAN BE TOWER DOVE, SWITCH TO THE RED ONE. ITS LIKE AN EXHAUST REDUCES DAAMGE BY 20% FOR 6 SECONDs
BUT ITS ALL ON YOUR SKILLS, GAMEPLAY, MECHS, AND OUTPLAY.
Coming to mid game.
THIS IS WHEN YOU SHOULD HAVE WARRIORS AND YOMUUS. GOD FORBID IF YOU GOT FED AND YOU HAVE CLEAVER. GET MOBAS, START TO ROAM.
POSITION POSITION POSITION.
SURPRISE THEM WITH THE W E FLASH. DON'T FORGET TO SMITE THE BIRD FOR ORACLES. IT HELPS WITH GANKS.
ALL IN THEM. IF ITS BOT LANE, JUST AIM THE SUPPORT, THEYRE WAY MORE SQUISHIER AND THEY USUALLY DONT HAVE AN MECHANISM FOR ESCAPE. KILLING JUST THE SUPPORT IS FINE ENOUGH BECAUSE WHAT IS AN ADC GOING TO DO 3V1? YOURE THINKING WHAT IF THEY JUST PULL OFF DOUBLE LIFT MECHANISM. WELL I DONT KNOW HOW EASY IT IS BY JUST CLICKING E AND Q, IT WILL DO 700 DAMAGE. ITS A CLICK ON LIKE PLEASE, U WILL GET IN SOME DAMAGE. IT'S TOO HARD TO FAIL. E AND Q ISNT A SKILL SHOT. AND IF THE ADC AND SUPPORT CANT DO A BIT MORE DAMAGE TO ADD ONTO THAT 700 DAMAGE, THEN THEYRE AFKING.
How to team fight with this???
ALRIGHT, THIS IS WHERE YOUR MECHANICS AS A PLAYER COMES IN. YOU HAVE TO POSITION. YOUR GOAL IS TO HAVE THE BIGGEST ULTS. IT HAS TO HIT A LOT OF PEOPLE, OR JUST SIMPLY USED TO QUICKLY KILL THE ADC OR APC ON THE BACK LINE.
HOW? IF YOU SEE A FIGHT COMING, USE W. WALK PAST THE FRONT LINE, FLASH, E DASH TO THE BACK LINE AND DO AN INSTANT ULT. POP YOUR YOMUUS AND SMITE THEM ASAP. IF YOU HAVE RANDUINS, APPLY THAT ASAP. THEY CANT RUN FROM U. AFTER THEY DIE, MOVE ONTO THE NEXT PERSON, YOU HAVE AROUND 600 MS DURING THAT TIME.
THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO WATCH OUT FOR, IS EXHAUST, THAT IS THE KILLER. WHEN I SAY POSITIONING, MAKE SURE U SEE WHAT CHAMPS BURNED WHAT CC, AND SEE IF THE SUPPORT IS OUT OF PLACE. IF THE SUPPORT IS CLUMPED UP WITH THE ADC OR APC BECAUSE THEY PEEL, THEN U KNOCK THEM BOTH UP, STOPPING THAT EXHAUST FOR 1 SECOND BECAUSE 1 SECOND IS ALL YOU NEED.
Why do i consider this better than a normal build? - READ THIS FIRST IF YOU
This build is for people who are confident and on fire. People who have the mechs and the outplay mentality. If you can't believe in yourself to carry the game, just go standard. IF YOU PLAY THIS RIGHT U WILL HAVE 15KILLS + PER GAME.
ALRIGHT, i main wukong and i noticed many things.
If you just build tanky with wukong,then your sole purpose is to get a good ult, which you can do with glass cannon builds except IT DOES DAMAGE AND YOU HAVE POTENTIAL TO KILL THE APC AND ADC. BUILD TANK AND THE ADC WILL JUST KITE YOU OFF AND U JUST DIE. PLAY OTHER CHAMPS IF YOU WANT TO PLAY A TANKY ROLE, WUKONG ISNT FIT FOR THIS. HE NEEDS DAMAGE.
WHY PLAY WUKONG TANK WHEN MALPH TANK IS SO MUCH BETTER, RENE TANK IS BETTER.
Building tank means YOURE GOING TO DO LESS DAMAGE THAN THE OTHER TOP LANER.
Building tank means, YOU CANT CARRY YOURSELF OUT OF THIS ELO SO YOU BECOME YOUR TEAMS MEAT BAG SO THEY CAN DO THE WORK. CAN YOU TRUST SOLO QUEUE PEOPLE??
Build dps and you can duel almost every carries that arent tanks. EX: Late game, if you all in a fiora, you will beat her 10/10 times. Simple E AUTO Q AUTO ULT. coming to kill her? initiate in with W, go in invis, suprise her, instant r.
ITS DOES MORE CONSISTANT DAMAGE THAN THE REGULAR DPS BUILD ALL BECAUSE OF ADDING WARRIORS AND YOMUUS.
Yomuus and the smite gives so much more utility for plays.
Alright guys, the rest is all up to your mechanics to be able to pull it off. I promise you this build wrecks so hard. TRUE DAMAGE IS THE BEST DAMAGE. REMINDER: PLAY SAFE EARLY, ROAM MID, POSITION POSITION POSITION ON FIGHTS. KILL THE BACK LINE. GL
