Introduction

Hello Summoners ! In this build im going to try to show you how to get the max out of WuKong , The Monkey King .Firstly WuKong is a melee dps with great escaping capabilities and that can get in and out of fights very fast .Has great laning potential due to his combo wich i shall explain later on .

Runes

Ok here comes the fun part :X .

I use :
x9
x9
x9
x3

With this build i get the max out of lane phase starting with 90 Damage at lvl 1 ~600 Hp and decent Magic Resist + Armour thanks to his nice passive .



You can also try :
Greater Mark of Desolation x9
x9
x9
Greater Quintessence of Desolation x3

This build is a bit more tanky but without the insane damage early on that WuKong is capable of .Of course ArP helps alot and you can consider replacing Last Whisper with a Bloodthirster or a resistance item like Force of Nature .

I strongly recommend the 1st Rune setup mostly because you can get a few kills easily mostly because the opponents ussualy ignore the threat that may come from WuKong .

Masteries

I take 21-9-0 taking the Armour Penetration and 4% damage plus the armour and magic resist from the defence tree .

Also you can try 9-21-0 taking Armour Penetration and 4% reduced dmg , this of course if you want him more tanky wich is less helpfull for the team .

Items

Starting Item : 10 Damage 100 Hp and 3% Life Steal it's perfect for a good start .

Item Purchasing Order : ---> ---> ---> ---> ---> ---> ---> ---> ---> .

If the match isn'y over by now you may consider changing with for more damage or with if you need more survability .

CORE Items :
Other acceptable Items :
*Banshee's get's you a few moew seconds to get in and start your burst while Warmog works great with Atma's and has some nice HP regen .

Skill Sequence

Passive :
Q Skill :
W Skill :
E Skill :
R Ultimate :

I max out as fast as i can as it is the biggest source of damage ( except ultimate ) Wukong has .At level 3 you can start harrasing opponents with your epic combo : --> --> .
Alot of players use E --> Q --> W wich is good too but you have a good chance of not landing your Q .The reason why i use Q first is because refreshes your autoattack cooldown so you basicaly can't miss your .
If you are going for the kill your combo changes a bit :
--> --> --> After this your E cd should be refreshed assuring you the kill .


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Best Summoner Spells : + .
*This way no one can escape and you can keep your enemy inside your ultimate wich is very important .

Good Summoner Spells : , ,
*Ghost is good for both chasing or escaping .
*Cleanse comes in handy if you think you are beeing held down from starting your burst .
*Ignite is also great against players with massive life steal ( ex. Warwick )

Summary

Well..thats mostly all of course you may need some practice with him because it harder than it looks .Anyway it's by far the funniest champ in-game . After decoying and see people throwing Ult's on your clone makes you feel soooo gooood :D .Also in lane phase after decoying at low health you will see people throw out their last bit of mana on your clone making them free kills for your team mates .

Pros / Cons

Pros :
Very hard to kill .
Good damage early and mid game , and even late game if built right .
Very tricky .
You can activate your ultimate and if you think you messed up you can just turn it off by pressing R again .
You look good even when you are dead :X :D . ( like a meditating buddhist )

Cons :
CD dependant .
