Pros / Cons
Great Escape Tool
Powerful Ult with Amazing CC Knock-up
Not targeted often
Small Mana Costs
Dont have to build lots of armor because of passive
Tough early game
Decoy doesn't last long
Vulnerable to CC
I feel Wukong has a weak early game(the early game will be explained father down below in the guide.) and because of his weak early game I feel that you need runes that will be able to help you early and late game.
greater mark of desolation 9x Armor Pen Marks
9x Armor Seals
greater quintessence of desolation 9x Armor Pen Quints
9x Magic Resist Glyphs
9x CDR Glyphs
I have tried using 21-9-0 masteries with dodge runes, but I feel that merc treads are almost necessary and that 21-0-9 masteries are a much better fit for Wukong especially early game.
Early, Mid and Late Game
I feel Wukong has a weak early game, while being a good harasser with burst skills when they are on CD Wukong is very weak and can be easily pushed back. Wukong has a limited range and since you will need decoy often to escape, you wont be able to use it often to close the gap leaving you with only nimbus strike to get close. Because of this ranged champions will push you out of lane easily and can deny you if you aren't careful. I try to take duo lanes with this champion as he works well with confusion that duo lanes can bring. You will need a partner to help you if you plan to get to Mid and Late game with a decent farm. With Wukong you might not always have the best early game creep score, don't worry you will make up for this later once you start to get some of your items. This is why early game you should try to push the other champions back, harass often but if you don't feel you are in a safe situation don't push your luck and just play careful. If you can get to Mid game without much trouble you will be fine end game.
Once you have some of your items Wukong becomes a much more devastating champion. Getting Wriggle's early will give you some much needed life steal and minion farming abilities and also some cheap map awareness for the rest of the game with free wards. Once you get this you can start to take jungle monsters, push lanes and after fights not have to go back to base as often as you will be able to life steal your way back up to full. Sheen will give you even more burst which is really nice mid game especially with your crushing blow at level 5. Your goal in mid game is making up for lost farm, helping out in team fights with your ridiculous burst, and most of all getting some much needed kills and money.
Late game is where Wukong shines, Wukong is an amazing team fighter and all of his skills work great in team fights. Wait for the fight to initiate and then help out by hitting as many people with your ult as possible, then try to either decoy to a carry or nimbus strike to one. By now you should have enough attack to do a high amount of damage to a carry in a few seconds, try to target carries and save decoy for if the fight starts to turn in the other teams favor. Because of Wukongs skills he can initiate fights, he can provide amazing CC and damage with ult, he can smash or peel carries and he can chase or escape depending on how the fight turns out.
Tips and Tricks
- Autoattacking once before Crushing Blow will allow you to get 2 hits in the space of one.
- By pressing "stop" [default key: S] you can pretend that you have used Decoy to make your opponents think that you are the decoy.
- Crushing Blow does work on towers.
- If a turret targets you, you can use Decoy and have a chance that the turret will target the decoy. This can be useful if you turret dive or poke an enemy champion at their turret.
A few final closing thought's or notes.
Here are some scores of me using the build.Again they are not the best scores, this build isn't about getting fed and running away with a game. This build is to help you win games more often then losing them.
Wukong was trained in the Art of Wuju by Master Yi.
