Hello Fellow Legends!

This is my very first Guide I've ever created. My English isnt that Fluent but I guess you will understand the meaning of each sentences :-)

At first. Wukong is a very strong Champion in generel. Hes a real damage cannon as Defensive or Aggresive Gameplay. You can carry a whole game, even when it looks like the game is lost. Ive been playing Wukong alot for a long time and the Ultimate bring you and your team the Magic Trick on teamfights!

Handle Counters

List of champions Wukong is weak against:

This is your hardest Counter so far. He will shield Safeguard / Iron Will your main dmg Crushing Blow away and burst you for that. Be very safe at the beginning against Lee Sin. He can take down your Passive of your Nimbus Strike with his Tempest / Cripple easily! So be very careful.

This is your nightmare! Darius will take you down easily with his Passive Hemorrhage since he have to autohit you ofc when you Nimbus Strike on him or use your Crushing Blow
, his Ultimate Noxian Guillotine will completly destroy you since Wukong has NOT that much Health at Level 6 or further on to Level 11.


What im trying to tell you is you have to know your enemie champion and his Abilities. How much Damage they Deal, what Cooldown they have all those things make you nearly unkillable if you can focus you completly into the game.

High Movementspeed from Nature
Very Strong

One of the Strongest Ultimates in the Game!

Hard to play
Weak CC
Must build tanky to be effective in high level play
No real Escape without Decoy

Greater Mark of Armor Penetration
Those are very important since this build is focused on dealing damage with our Crushing Blow
Also our Ultimate Cyclone will deal highend Damage with Armor Penetration

Greater Seal of Armor
Those Runes are to stay more reliable against enemies dealing Phsyical Damage or Stay alive on getting a gank from the enemish Jungle dealing Phsyical damage to us.

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Those Runes are nicely when we have AP Champions in the enemish Jungle.

Greater Quintessence of Armor Penetration
Those Runes makes us deal the ultimative early and midgame damage. We easily press all enemies away with our Crushing Blow and Nimbus Strike and Cyclone combination!

We take 21/9/0 if we're doing the offensive build. Remember, always get masteries to match your item build since there are a lot of multipliers in masteries (ex: legendary armor, juggernaut).

If you went with the defensive build, you go defensive tree.

I personally love this combination. If you have to towerdive, make sure the enemie has low enough health and NO HEALPOTS to use ignite to finish off the job and grab the kill.

After that action if you are to low to escape with a normal run use flash.

You also can use this awesome on teamfights. Focusing the AD CARRY first with
and burst him down with your Q>E>R, try to get all enemies with your ultimate ofc. Singletarget focusing works also since its a nearly instant 4v5 then for your team.

I focus on max out our Crushing Blow first since this is the Pure DMG with our Runes and Masteries.

Our Nimbus Strike follows up next since we want to jump to our enemie and deal dmg with that, we also want AS in the early lategame.

Our Decoy is simply to troll out our enemies on just press S let them think we used our Decoy and finally use it then and run backwards away/go offensive and use it then finally.

I end this up as least since we dont need AP dmg early or mid. Later we can get a small dmg with our Decoy with helps us kill the enemies also since 250 dmg are 250dmg!

Early Game [How to get Firstblood easy]

Wukong has a very strong earlygame with those Runes and Masterie since the Enemy will take the same Seals as you if he is a smart player. Start Armor is mostly between 35-45 (related on masteries.)

Our runes penetrate 30 Armor. With allows us to take our enemie down like a squishy Lux in the Earlygame.

Dont try to finish off the job with the first engage, you will loose.

My Strategy:

Get your EP Bar 1/4 full. Try to land a and 2x Normal Hits since the Enemie has 30% reduced Armor after our for 3 seconds.

Try to land the same story again at 3/4 of your EP Bar short before you reach Level 2.

The enemie should be lower then 60% now and may used flash cus he is scared of all those DMG!

Finally we reach Level 2!

Try to stay back a second to bite him get some lasthits on Minions (Close Enough to kill/Far enough from the Tower.)

Try to land a followed up with a . Now you got 30% Attackspeed for 4 seconds. Try to get down 5 Autohits with a final and a followed up since it has a very small cooldown! To go sure hes dieng check his health and may hunt him down.

Congratulations! The Lane is yours now, but now you will have to take care of Ganks!

The Enemish Jungler is may 40% health after your kill. He wont go back to instantly gank you after shopping since there is nothing to buy yet. You got 2-4mins more to take the second kill!

As soon the enemie is back we have all lasthits ofc. And reached Level 3 (maybe 4) time to do the same story again!

What is very important, skill the at level 4 to escape ganks or just use it to walk stealth behind the enemie and kill him again. So or so you HAVE TO skill this since the gankingtime begins.

Mid Game [Enemies will RAGEQUIT!]

We hopefully had an successfully Early Game and already bought and and maybe a .

Time to capture the whole game! Take down your Toplane enemie with the Combination of:


Be sure to get out of the vision with into the Riverbush and streight up the Midlane to get a kill more. (IF POSSIBLE LET THE MIDLANER GET THE KILL.)

Streight after that use to get out of vision into the next Riverbush up to the botlane. Your Toplane will be fine if you pushed up to the tower anyways and the enemie may respawn in 1-8 seconds.

Time to rape Botlane.

Use from the Riverbush to enter the Lane followed up with a onto the AD CARRY, bash his face with a and use your since its up again. Also try to let the AD CARRY kill the enemie AD Carry and Support. INSTANTLY GO BACK AFTER THAT and rush if gold is there, if not follow the normal Itembuild.

Go back to the Toplane and Kill your Enemie with your Combo like in the Earlygame. Take down the Toplane tower and move to the Enemie's Redbuff. Maybe you are lucky and he is there together with a LowHP Jungler ;)

Start the Roamin again, this time start with the Botlane and then the Midlane. Your Mana should be good enough to def the Top tower after roaming. Go back and get your items. GG Surrender 20.
