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.
The monkey king
This is my guide to playing Wukong. This guide will teach you the ways to stay in your lane and score kills and be able to tank.
Pros / Cons
Great ganking ability Nimbus Strike Crushing Blow Cyclone.
Able to sneak away Decoy!!!!
Great Harassment Nimbus Strike and Crushing Blow then Decoy.
Tanky early game and late game Stone Skin.
great at starting the team fights with Cyclone.
Crushing Blow now the enemy has no armor.
great farmer with Nimbus Strike
he has trouble doing a 1v2 lane.
long cool downs
can be zoned if there is no ranged in your lane
greater mark of desolation
gives you that early game harassing with Nimbus Strike and Crushing Blow.
helps you stay in lane longer with your passive and the 6 points from Hardiness .
this also helps you lane longer with your passice and 6 points from Resistance .
greater quintessence of desolationyou can have more armor pen.
It's your pick.
you can get a 4.5% movement increase.
Brute Force x3
Strength of Spirit x3
These masteries give him early game resistance and help him out in the lane and harassing.
Starting Game size=32
I like to start with a Regrowth Pendant and a health pot but it is your choice if you want a mana pot. I just never run out of mana unless I'm getting to many kills.
They Sheen is the best thing you can get as soon as you can so you can proc your Crushing Blow
You can also choose to sell your Philosopher's Stone but i like to keep it till i need to sell it.
By now you should either be getting every kill and being fed, or getting a **** ton of assist.
This is the best for him because he can Decoy. While he is invisible you can flash and they wont see you come at them or leave the area.
This helps out when those kids want to over extend when they think you went back in the bush so you pop Crushing Blow then Nimbus Strike them and auto attack them. When they start to run you Exhaust them and pick up an easy kill.
You can keep chasing or run away if you get ganked.
If you want to backdoor fast just jump across the map and Crushing Blow and Sheen proc and will tear the turret up.
could possibly see i guess
If you want to be the tank for the team.
If you see they have a lot of cc on there team.
If the other team that regains a lot of health or or life steal/spell vamp.
Heal Because you're not a scrub
Revive 9 min cd
Smite you're not jungling
Clarity if you are having mana problems then you're doing something wrong
Clairvoyance you're not the support
Wukong can help your team out when you need to knock Katarina out of her ult, or stopping Teemo from running away by using Cyclone. Wukong should be able to save your teams life by using Decoy and there team will chase after and you and then you can save some lives.
While in the lane
In the lane you and your partner should be able to zone the other team out or harass them. Wukong can harass by Nimbus Strike then Crushing Blow then Decoy back into the brush. You do massive burst damage and in return take little to no damage.
