The Author

Hello, I'm "Squishy Support" (I was "Last AP Tristana" before) , I am 23 and i play in EUW. I started playing League of Legends at the beginning of season 2 and reached diamond during season 6 by playing AP tristana among others. I play mainly squishy supports (lol) but i also play some midlaners and junglers, and some weird ( but viable ) builds too. I'm planning to reach challenger during season 7 but i always try to keep my guides simple so everyone can read it ! You can check my other guides if you are looking for unusual but working builds, or for short guides about supports.

Short Compilation



Full game with slight tilt



Guide Top

Pros / Cons

- Strong level 1 already
- EXTREME snowball potential
- Invisibility for funny jukes
- Good ganker
- Very high burst and can even kill tanks
- AoE Knock up and damage
- Can solo carry when fed (Full ult can be ~ 3000 damage)
- Decently tanky without items
- Ult synergizes well with Zhonya for maximum trolling
- Irritating for the enemy




- Being melee in mid lane can be annoying
- Playing AD mid means you need AP somewhere else
- Useless if REALLY behind
- "Wukong is not a midlaner you noob"
- You will get heavily focused if you use your /taunt

Runes

Greater Mark of Lethality

This is the best stat to kill squishy people, which is exactly your job as an assassin.


Greater Seal of Armor

You can use this on all champs because they are good and other seals are nearly all bad. You can also use : HP, HP per level, or armor per level.


Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

You can also use this on all champs, they are cheap and good. Scaling MR is also fine!


Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

You are an AD assassin so this is cool. It also helps you for last hits. You can use lethality quints too for more damage on champions in late game.

About the Keystone

Thunderlord's Decree or Stormraider's Surge ?

Thunderlord gives you more burst, you probably know it already.

However, stormraider is also cool because :

- You have no real escape, so it can help you running away after killing someone.
- You can all-in in lane and go away before your opponent trades back.
- When you ult someone he will never escape even if he flashes away :D

The choice is up to you but i recommend thunderlord for new players!

Items

Lethality = kill squishy people. Wukong can do this very well and he also synergizes well with out of combat movement speed because it allows you to stay invisible on a longer distance!


This helps you to destroy tanks, carries with guardian angel/zhonya, and everyone else! You should be able to do true damage on squishies when you have enough items. And the CDR is also cool !


Assassin Wukong is very similar to the old Talon. Buy this very early in the game and ROAM. You are excellent ganker and can snowball really fast! And also (i said it a lot already), movement speed makes you invisible on a longer distance.


Lethality = good. Movement speed = good. Breaking wards will also help you a lot because you need to hide to be efficient! And the second passive gives you burst each time you go invisible or out of enemy vision.


It gives you lifesteal (also on your spells), and it helps you to survive longer in teamfight, land your FULL ult on multiple people and get a pentakill for youtube


(Lethality, movement speed = good). Buy this when there is a crucial spell you need to avoid ( for example you need to kill a jinx but each time you try the f****** janna instantly ults you)


Buy this when you have enough damage but die really too fast. Your Q and ult scale with base AD so it still gives you good damage!


Buy this when there is a crucial CC you need to remove (Lissandra, Malzahar...)

Buy this if you are bad at farming (like me) or if you want to splitpush since wukong is good splitpusher. (However, i don't reccomend splitpushing because you are so awesome in teamfight!)

Buy this when the only condition to your victory is "wukong stays alive"

Spells

This makes you decently tanky, that's all.


This spell does good damage and also helps you to kill tanks by reducing their armor.


Tips and tricks :

- It will reset your auto-attack timer
- If you cast E during the animation of this spell, you will stop the animation and still do the damage of both spells !


Ok, so THIS IS AN AMAZING SPELL. You can juke, troll, block skillshots or even tank a tower shot in specific situations!


Tips and tricks :

- If you are running away from someone, just use W and turn around and go the opposite way! It will work very often.
- High movement speed allows you to stay invisible on a longer distance.
- If W is on cooldown and someone is chasing you, just press S to stop moving ! The enemy will think you are the clone and go away (LOL)


This is your main spell, dealing high damage and giving you a gap closer.


Tips and tricks :

- It gives you attack speed !!!


This ult will deal massive AoE damage (can deal 700 damage PER SECOND in late game) and can win a fight alone. It's also a massive CC.


Tips and tricks :

- Level 6 ult is weak as f*ck
- Level 11 and 16 ult are strong as f*ck
- it gives you movement speed !!

Laning Phase

First blood cheese



Against squishy mages you can get first blood level 1 by pressing E and right clicking the enemy to death (+ ignite). If he is not stupid enough to die level 1 you can kill him the same when level 3 or 4


Laning phase



You are stronger than nearly all midlaners, you need to use your invisibility to catch the enemy laner (or jungler) as much as you can. You also need to buy pink wards and always ward the bushes on the sides of your lane (at least one side). Once you have mobility boots you can permagank other lanes to get kills and snowball hard.

Team Fighting

Teamfight Basics



Wukong is one of the best teamfighters in the game !! With this build, your role will be to catch enemy carries and delete them in half a second. To do this, you will need to stay out of vision of the enemy team, and when you see an opportunity you can jump in and cast all your spells on the enemy squishies. Unlike other assassins, wukong can easily engage a 5v5 fight by himself !!


Your Best Friends



Your best friends will be the other "wombo combo guys" who can follow your amazing engages and clean up the pieces of champions you will let behind you


Your Deadliest Enemies



You will hate those f*cking peeling supports who will prevent you from approching carries. And also, if you jump in and get exhausted you are dead (pretty simple isn't it? ).


Special Case : You completely failed your game



You will always have enough damage to kill someone unless you played REALLY bad, so The game is not lost : Just suicide all the time to kill someone important (the enemy midlaner or adc), your team might be able to win the following 4v4. Wukong is also decent splitpusher with hydra but i really don't like splitpushing as wukong.

Thank you for reading

Ok i tried to keep this guide simple but i think i have not much more to teach you anyway. I hope you will have fun and stomp your opponents with this build ! Keep in mind that even in ranked mode it is just a game, so stay friendly and don't flame as it would only make your teammates uncomfortable and sometimes even hurt them. They are just people like you after all.
You can vote for my guide if you found it useful, and if you like it i will write more guides about my other picks.
Thank you and happy gaming !
