Threats to Wukong with this build

Threat
Low
High
Show all
Threat Champion Notes
1
Amumu IF they for some reason choose to play Amumu top then here is what you do: Amumu top has a weak early game so be aggressive early (beware of minion damage). More info found in "Champion Match Ups".
1
Ashe Be aggressive. It's easy, just don't take too much harass before you go in. More info found in "Champion Match Ups".
1
Aurelion Sol Level 1 cheese is possible (E > AA > AA). Beware minion damage and stay inside the little circle to prevent damage. More info found in "Champion Match Ups".
1
Gnar Like the dragon, you can do the level 1 cheese. Try to get level 2 first. When he throws his Q and MISSES, jump on him with an E > AA > Q >?Ignite if taken. Watch for his Mega Gnar Bar, don't usually want to fight when Mega. More info found in "Champion Match Ups".
1
Karthus Man. if you ever play against a Karthus top... Don't do the level 1 cheese because he will be able to trade back (unless he is really bad). Again, try to get level 2 first and hit him with the E > AA > Q combo. Consider Stormraider instead of Thunderlord. More info found in "Champion Match Ups".
1
Kassadin Similar to the rest of the easy lanes, level 1 cheese is a possible strategy. Get level 2 first and go in for the kill. More info found in "Champion Match Ups".

My perma-ban on achan55

What They Say:
Spoiler: Click to view






I would like to clarify, I did not perform in any cheating or hacking OR sharing of my account in this amazing game. I had a LoL Replay system (because LoL somehow doesn't have one despite huge request, I also researched and 100% thought the programs I used were allowed, but I know Riot has the right to change that whenever they want.) I had an app that gave custom skins. None of this happened: "scripts, hacks, exploits or unauthorized third-party programs in League of Legends. Accounts that are caught using hacks to gain an unfair competitive advantage are subject to permanent suspension." Okay okay, maybe the unauthorized part. But I'm innocent, I didn't know it wasn't allowed! (I mean did YOU read the terms of use XD?!)

I named this chapter salt because I was unhappy, but I have no one to blame but myself, I hope you can still enjoy the guide!

(Riot people, if you are reading this I'm not being toxic! Please don't ban my smurf!!! xP)


Guide Top

Now that I am Banned... (Skippable)



HA! Just joking. Add me on "SKR Adrian", my new awesome account where I use all my league of legends hacks and scripts!

(Okay, no more playing. I know for sure Riot is gonna bring down my guide or something)

This is what I was saying to myself when I tried to log in, but Rito said I was perma banned (Pretend I am Dunkey rhyming there, Dunkey is the donkey with red lyrics!) ALSO IF YOUR EARS ARE NOT GROWN, DON'T WATCH THIS VIDEO. I DON'T WANT ANGRY PARENTS LOL! ****Credit to the beast, Sky Williams****


"WE LOVE RIOT, WE CAN'T DEFY THEM"

(But seriously, don't ban me.)


I will tell you when I hit 30 and jump into ranked, where I placed.

Why Riot Won't Listen To Us! (Skippable)

Want a replay system?
Want sandbox mode!?
How about URF?

TOO BAD HAHA. The only thing you will get out of Riot is skins and LCS (oh and lol chromas).

Long story short: Riot is a business and business need to make money. Money comes from skins and LCS. Merchandising, tickets, so many other things. Just think about it, why spend time making a replay system when you can make another ultimate skin? I mean one obviously makes more money!

Anyways, just a thought. Doesn't relate to the guide at all and it isn't very relevant to the newer players because everything is still new and exciting.

*I am now SKR Adrian (a new account)*

Hi my name is achan55, I am a Wukong main. I worked hard to make this guide the best I could, and I would appreciate any and all feedback that you guys may provide. This is my first guide so there may be some mistakes or things I'm missing. Here is my op.gg (of my new account SKE Adrian), if your curious. You can also check my build paths in certain matchups with op.gg which is also very neat.

I've been playing since mid s3 and picked up Wukong as my main because he is just such a great champion. I played Wukong to carry me to the elo I'm in and I had fun doing it. I hope this guide will help you enjoy playing Wukong better and just the game in general (because you will be stomping :3).

I do plan to play Wukong to as high of an elo I can achieve. I can't count the amount of games I have played as Wukong (too many to count). Add me in game at: achan55 (SIKE, add me at SKR Adrian now... freaking Riot), if you wanna ask anything!

I would like to call out Allorim, I have learned so much from his gameplay and guide, he is my inspiration to make this guide. I would also like you call out to Elusive Ferret for showing me we have an artist corner! I'm too newb to find out myself.

My Example Builds (Skippable)

My example builds ARE not set and stone. EVERY game is different, keep playing more games with Wukong and over time you will learn certain items to build and when. Although if you're new I definitely recommend getting a couple or 3 tank items!

About Wukong/Champion Spotlight (Skippable)



Lore & Champion spotlight:

Spoiler: Click to view

Wukong in the competitive scene!?: Wukong has been played in the LCS during season 3 (or 4 I forget :c). They didn't play Wukong in any lanes because of the fact he didn't have a good time againts the dominante laners at the time. Also there were lane swaps and Wukong doesn't like 2v1 lanes, he will fall behind and won't get enough gold to get strong with items, compared to laners like Maokai who scales strongly through levels or Gnar who has a considered good 2v1 lane.

To be continued...

Pros & Cons



____________ ____________

___ Pros ___


+ Strong burst damage
+ Easy to play (takes a little time to "master!")
+ High AD scaling
+ Jukes! :3
+ Cyclone does tons of damage
+ Strong team fight
+ Built in tankiness with the passive Stone Skin
+ Very snowbally
+ Built in Armor pen from Crushing Blow
+ Gap Closer from Nimbus Strike and attack speed self-buff
+ Invisibility from Decoy
+ Spam laugh for challenger level baits
+ Ctrl 6 ahaaha

____ Wukong is a very strong pick for soloq in my opinion. Wukong synergies well with all in compositions. Wukong can be a strong split-pusher when taking teleport because he has auto-attack cancellation, pushes fast with his Nimbus Strike and Ravenous Hydra. Don't forget the self-buff from his Nimbus Strike for attack speed. But while being a strong split pusher he is also a strong teamfighter with his ult Cyclone.

___ Cons ___



- Only a knockup for CC
- No natural sustain
- Item dependent
- Can't juke everyone(No dependable escape, pink wards op!)
- Level 1 Cyclone is unexpectedly weak.

____Every champion has there flaws(although I like to believe Wukong doesn't have any XD). You can juke with your Decoy but its not the best form of escape, and you don't usually want to use Cyclone to escape ganks and other dangerous situations. Wukong can be weak when behind especially when he has a hard lane against a champion with high sustain compared to Wukong zero natural sustain. Wukong doesn't have any CC besides Cyclone, but you are an assassin. Assassins don't usually have a lot of CC.

Wukong Tips and Tricks (And Also Combos)


Read this if you want more info:

Spoiler: Click to view


Allorim was a huge reason why I play Wukong. (IF YOU ARE READING THIS, I HOPE YOU DON'T MIND I USED YOUR VIDEOS!! ALL RIGHTS TO ALLORIM)

Tips and Tricks Videos From Allorim:


Simple Wukong Combos:
(Check "League Terms")
> means next, >? means situational

- Trading (Level 1): E > AA !!Beware minion damage!!

- Trading (Level 2): E > AA > Q !! Stormraider's Surge will most likely proc (and Thunderlord's Decree will proc)!!

- Trading (Level 3+): E > AA > Q >? W !! Stormraider's Surge will most likely proc (and Thunderlord's Decree will proc)!!

- Trading (Level 3+ Tiamat/Hydra): E > AA > Q > Ravenous Hydra >? W

TL;DR:____________

Yeah... that's it LOL.


Level One Cheese Strategy (Lane)

This "strategy" with Wukong requires IMMENSE skill and TIME to master...(haha sarcasm). Just go to lane and Nimbus Strike onto them, then continue to AA them. Wukong has a longer AA range then most melee champions and that helps a lot a times. After you E > AA (Beware minion damage) and you get a good amount of damage on them. Get level 2 first and go in for the kill. G_G you win!

Wukong Jungle Routes



Read this if you want more info:

Spoiler: Click to view


Jungle Routes (Red):
Option 1: If you start red side, this is a very viable option to start. (Always beware of invades from all champions but especially those Shaco, Lee Sin, and Xin Zhao.) And more of course.

Option 1:


Option 2: (CAUTION: THIS METHOD CAN BACKFIRE AND YOU NEED TO KNOW IF THEIR ENEMY JUNGLER TAKES A LOT OF DAMAGE IN THE EARLY JUNGLE) This is more of a risky start. High Risk - High Reward.
Step 1: In champselect think: Do I want to be a god but potentiality get flamed by teammates? Yes!

Step 2: You know you will start gromp and you know that most likely the enemy will start krugs.

Step 3: Does that enemy champion take a lot of damage in the early jungle? Good chance of solo invading:
Spoiler: Click to view


Step 4: Do gromp (with the help of bot lane, smite it)

Step 5: Walk to their Red Buff (ALWAYS BEWARE OF ENEMY MID AND BOT LANERS AS THEY MIGHT HAVE WARDED AND TRY TO HELP THEIR JUNGLER!). Let them tank damage from red buff then, take the red buff and you can also try to kill their jungler for first blood.

OPTIONAL Step 6: (Side note: Make sure you are potting up if needed and be wary of enemy laners.) Take their raptors after your blue, try not to use smite if you don't need to, then walk through mid lane to their blue and they will most likely be doing their blue and you can kill them again. ( On the way to their blue you can gank mid or try to be in the fog of war on the way)

Black Cleaver vs Youmuu's Ghostblade


!!!! Ghostblade is even better on Wukong now! So choose wisely..

VS.

Allorim does explain why he picks which in certain matchups in his guide: http://solomid-prod-1517640399.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com/guide/view/119570-wukong-build-guide-apc-fighter-by-allorim

But in my personal opinion you should only take Youmuu's Ghostblade if you are experienced at Wukong and you understand the damage you can do. It does help you engage(although you should be a semi-engage) and catch up to targets. If you don't use the active, it's not gonna be useful.

If your new to Wukong I recommend The Black Cleaver in most cases and of course you can always buy both.

An inside look into Youmuu's Ghostblade




Yup. This item needs it's own chapter. This can also be helpful to other champions that use Youmuu's Ghostblade like Talon and what not :D.

This is copy and pasted right out of the discussion, but will be further updated as I think of more! (Shout out to CoconutTree for asking me great questions)

Answer:

Guide Top

Full AD or Bruiser



Full AD. The scaling on Wukong are just too good to pass. Your passive Stone Skin is already giving you some tankiness.

To sum it up go full AD if your experienced and go bruiser if your still learning or you feel your team needs some more tank. Going bruiser you can get 2 damage items and then tank items after that.
Top lane = Full AD (Max 3 Defensive items)


Mid lane = Full AD


Jungle = Bruiser

Ignite vs Teleport

Ignite

A lot of time in mid lane Ignite is the best way to go. Top lane is a different story, if you take Ignite you NEED to get an advantage in your lane. Ignite does give you cheese and better all-in potential. If you don't gain a lead you will be at a disadvantage without Teleport. You will most likely fall down in CS because you won't be able to farm your lane and Teleport to objectives. But if you are confident you can smash your land then go ahead and take Ignite. Also consider taking Ignite if they have a heavy healer like Dr. Mundo, Vladimir, or even the new Fiora.

Teleport
You should take Teleport in a lane where the opponent has leverage on you. If you think the lane matchup will be difficult you should defnitly take Teleport. You will have less pressure taking Teleport than Ignite, but you can still gain a creep score lead and an experiance/ level lead. You can counter gank/roam with Teleport to other lanes and give them a lead.

A lot of great Wukong players take Ignite and the same with Teleport, but put all the things I said above into consideration and add your playstyle preference and choose. Don't be afraid to switch between the two.

GUIDE IN PROGRESS!! (Skippable)

I published this guide early to help players ASAP (as I see there are not that many Fresh or Updated Wukong guides that have much info). But this guide isn't nearly complete, I'm hoping other MOBAFire guide creators could help me out as this is my first guide. Nothing is really that organized, the chapters are messy, but I hope you understand why it is so.

I do realize the information for mid and jungle is very lackluster. I will continue to keep working on it.

My guide currently isnt very pretty or has the most information, as I don't artwork and more info will come over time. I hope you understand (I'm a noob at making guides because it my first time XD). I'll still gladly answers any questions and if you do like the guide so far an +Upvote will make my day, if not... then wait till its finished you will LOVE it <3.
