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.
Hi everyone I have finally got around to updating my guide for Wukong. A lot has changed in League over the past two seasons. I hope you all enjoy and I hope it helps you go up in the ranks. :)
lets start with mark runes the reason I go with flat armor pent is because he has amazing burst damage. It not only gives you great damage it gives you an awesome advantage early tearing through their armor. Next seal runes the reason I go with flat armor runes is you need to be durable early game. Next glyph runes the reason I use Magic resist per lvl runes is because your top lane you really don't need the MR early, but it does add up for late and mid game for when you fight AP casters. Next Quintessence runes the reason I use flat damage runes is it gives a huge advantage early with the armor pent you added with marks.
I go 21/9/0 after the changes to the mastery tree I had to make some minor adjustments But I believe I have found the right path. If you feel like you are gonna struggle in top go 9/21/0.
1. I normally start Dorans Blade, 1 HP, and a yellow trinket.
2. On first back grab another Dorans blade, and Boots of speed.
3. On Second back grab counter boots, and Phage.
Next backs depends on how the lane is going.
4. Grab sheen, and zeal if you are winning and ahead.
5. On next back grab Tri-Force, Black Cleave, and Vampiric Scepter
6. If you are behind Grab The Brutalizer, and ruby Chrystal.
7. Then on the next back grab Black Cleaver, Trinity Force, and Vampiric Scepter.
8. Next item Bloodthirster or Hydra It depends on how you want to play the lane.
9. If you want to Shove the towers fast Go BT.
10. Now if you want to wave clear faster grab Hydra.
Defensive Situation Items
11. For defensive items I suggest just counter AP heavy teams with Spirit Visage, GA.
12. For AD heavy teams go Frozen Heart, GA.
I run Flash/Ignite
Flash for escaping or catching a low enemy.
Ignite to beat someone with a heal or to grab First Blood.
You can run Flash/Teleport
Teleport will allow you to backdoor way easier but you sacrifice the chance of getting early kills.
Pros / Cons
Honestly the only cons I have seen are the champions that don't use manna have a better chance against him. Lee Sin, Renekton, Pantheon, Singed, Garen, Darius, Yorick, Malphite, Warwick, Riven these champions may give you a rough time. Thornmail, Ninja Tabi, Randuin's Omen, Frozen Heart these items can give you a rough time early to mid game. Range, Crowd Control, Mobility, Armor these mechanics may give you a rough time.
Pros: He can easily catch an adc with the use of his clone/Nimbus strike.
Great CC with ult.
Great Burst damage.
Great clear time.
Wukong works very well with most all champs. First you want others to start the fights unless you are fed. You will want to decoy from a bush and nimbus strike and cyclone to knock them up dealing a lot of damage and aim for SQUISHIES FIRST. Focus ADC and AP Casters.
Farming with Wukong is simple.
You want to last hit early pre lvl 3.
Once you hit lvl 3 You can hit the front minions once each then use your E/Nimbus Strike.
Do the same to the back minions.
I hope you all enjoy my Guide. Like I said back in Season 2 this is my first guide. I hope this helps those who are struggling to climb Bronze/Silver. I do not know if this will get you past mid Silver. Since Season 2 I started taking the game more serious and have improved to mid Silver from Bronze 5. I mainly played Wukong in my top lane. Please leave a comment letting me know if I missed anything. This Guide is a bruiser Wukong not really meant for defense. If you use my guide and change a few things that make it even better let me know I am up for any constructive criticism. I hope you guys/women have a great day. :)
