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.
Creeping / Jungling
At the beginning of the game i usually like to start with blue so i can get red later and gank as much as possible while my red is still active. So i start with golems or grump, ask for help from top or bot (Depending on which side you are) Smite it instantly and kill it, after its done go to blue buff and take your w. Since Wukong doesn't have good sustain in the jungle then you really need to kite the blue buff. Go up to the blue buff and start attacking it, use your w as close as possible for the blue buff so the blue buff starts to attack your clone, and then you must attack the buff. After every autoattack you must walk back a bit so the blue buff has to get closer to you and his attack speed is much slower. Just try to kite the blue buff and you should be fine. Then go to wolves or wraiths and kill them. After then go to base and buy your jungling item, you should have just enough money to buy stalkers blade. Then go to red and kill it. Then you can gank other lanes or farm. If ganking other lanes pre 6 then you need to rely on other people cc, such as morgana's q. Because you dont have cc on your own.
I usually use my w so the enemy team dont really know what im going to do, and then go in with my nimbus strike. I try to dive into their backline and instantly ult, so the black cleaver does its work. And while im doing so adc is unable to do anything, while my team does the other work.
First buy hunters machete and two health potions, and ofcourse a warding trinket.
After you go back you should buy the stalkers blade and take your red, after that you should be able to gank with the smite, which slows enemies.
I really recommend going for black cleaver as it is very strong for Wukong, as his ultimate stacks the black cleaver up. Also after that you should sell your warding totem and go for sweeping lens. [ALSO DONT FORGET TO UPGRADE IT]
Choose your boots according to the situation, when they got much cc or much ap then go for mercurys, if they dont then go for ninjas. Go for mobilities if you are strong and you need to roam around the map alot. After black cleaver you can go for randuins and last whisper, if you are starting to fall behind a bit, then i recommend going for randuins before the last whisper, but if you are still strong and you feel like you are not dying very often then go for last whisper and then randuins.
For the last item you could go either sunfire of banshees, your choise. Ofcourse it depends on enemy team.
Pros / Cons
-Ultimate can carry teamfights
-Can go stealth and juke enemies
-Good at all stages of the game.
-Pre 6 ganks are weak
-Low sustain in jungle
-Countered by Pink or sweeping lens
During the chaos of the Rune Wars, an enormous runestone was lost deep within the Plague Jungles. It remained there untouched for centuries, emanating a potent magic which infused nearby wildlife with sentience and vitality. A group of monkeys who were particularly empowered by it came to worship the stone, and their leader - a wise sage - became convinced that he could harness its power to make the monkeys immortal. He performed an elaborate ritual, but things didn't go as he expected. The runestone was destroyed, and instead of granting immortality, it produced Kong, a monkey who carried in his heart the strength and power it had contained. Kong was driven by an unquenchable desire for greatness. He sought out every beast and monster the Plague Jungles could offer, eager to find a worthy opponent, but none offered the challenge he craved. He asked the sage for advice, and learned about a legend of hairless monkeys to the north who, with wits and might, had bent the world to their will.
Kong left, journeying north, determined to discover if the legend was true. He crossed the Southern Wastes and then the Great Barrier. On his way, he happened upon MasterYiSquare.png Master Yi, who was deep in meditation. Kong asked him who the strongest warrior in the north was, and Yi told him about the League of Legends. The tale intoxicated Kong, a place where he could battle the strongest fighters in the world was, to him, paradise. Kong asked Yi to introduce him to this League, and to teach him the ways of humans, so that he could be a fitting champion. In return, he would honor Yi by using Yi's Wuju style to become the greatest warrior Runeterra had ever seen. Admiring his passion, Yi agreed, but under the condition that Kong would one day teach the lessons of Wuju to a pupil of his own. In the spirit of this agreement, he renamed Kong Wukong, and gave him a weapon suited to his unusual nature - an enchanted staff that the young Doran had crafted. The weapon was an unrivalled masterpiece. Guided by Yi, Wukong joined the League of Legends to prove himself as the best, and to show the world the true power of Wuju.
