Not Updated For Current Season
Hello! My name is Kizum (my name on LOL too) this is my first guide here at Moba and its about Wukong, the monkey king. Wukong is a pretty powerful melee character and hes work is to lead the charge against the other team if you dont have a tank in your team, then he will do it. By the way lets start.
[*] Wukong is all about power and attack speed. You dont actually need much cooldown or mana to him.
[*] So use 8 Greater mark of strength the get much AD to the start of the match.
[*] 1 Greater mark of might is good because it gives you more AD later in the game (per level).
[*] 6 Greater seal of strength for AD
[*] 3 Greater seal of alacrity for attack speed
[*] 9 Greater glyph of strength for AD
[*] 1 Greater quintessence of might gives AD later in the game (per level).
[*] 2 Greater quintessence of strength gives AD
This is pretty good runes for Wukong but it works with full AD runes too.
Like you see, I go 21/8/1
Wukong doesnt need to go 30/0/0 (full attack damage) just because he is a very powerful character without the masteries so I go with defense too. Both magic resistance and armor.
I dont spend any point at "weapon expertise". Yes it gives +10% armor penetration but its better spending the point on "lethality". It gives +10% critical strike damage and its more imoptant, just because when Wukong stikes critical he really strikes critical XD. And when you will buy the Phantom dancer you have 10% more critical damage to add to the 30% the Phantom dancer gives.
[*] The first item you always need to buy to wukong is Dorans blade. A beauty who gives damage, health and life steal.
[*] Then buy shoes. Important to have if you are trying to escape or chase an enemy.
[*] Berserkers greaves is the best alternative of shoes to Wukong in my opinion but if you need magic resistance or armor you can buy Mercurys treads or Ninja tabi. But Berserkers is the best alternative.
[*] Go after Bloodthirster with Vampiric scepter and then buy B.F sword and then Bloodthirster. Awsome things who gives 60 attack damage and 15 life steal.
[*] Buy the Black cleaver. This nice things gives you both 55 attack damage and 30 attack speed. But the best is the passive, you know that you passive "stone skin" gives you defense when enemy champions are close, well this things reduce your targets armor. Your armour goes up, there armor goes down.
[*] Now buy the Phantom dancer. Gives you movement speed, attack speed and critical strike chance.
[*] Next item is the Frozen mallet. Awsome if the enemies are too fast for you. It slow and gives you 700 health.
[*] Next thing. Sell your Dorans blade and buy one more Bloodthirster.
[*] Always start with Nimbus strike, you attack many enemies at the same time.
[*] Always Decoy as second if you feel that they focus you in the start. With this ability you can attack with Nimbus strike and then escape fast with decoy. You can also use flash here if they chase you.
[*] Crushing blow is important so take it as number 3.
[*] Level up Nimbus strike at level 4 the deal more damage with it.
[*] Same with Crushing blow here in level 5.
[*] Here in level 6 you unlock you ultimate Cyclone. You jump in with Nimbus then do your ulti(awsome in team fight)n then you can escape fast with decoy. (Dont wait with your ulti, jump in together with your tank and do the ulti so your team can deal max damage)
Flash and ignite are awsome summoner spell to Wukong.
You can flash and then jump on your enemies with Nimbus if you cant reach them. So thats important. Ignite is important too.
Alternative is Ghost and not flash, if so you can run fast to a place or so you can escape.
