This is my first build here on mobafire. And most likely it won't be a succes.
But i'm just trying to do good ^^
So here i go!

I really like wukong and i'm really good at playing him.


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.

Wukong 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 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.

''Only in combat do you learn who you truly are.''

Runes And Masteries Why so defensive?

Easy. Wukong has to come very close to minions and other champions early game.
This means , he's easy to be hit by most champions and even easier to be hit by Long ranged champions such as: ashe or caitlyn for exemple.

I tried this with diffrent runes/masteries, and i was food to minions. I know , you're thinking PSHHH i just press E--->W and run. However,you won't be able to that till level 4, and that will drain so much mana it's inevitable to become useless Very early game. You'll have about 10 CS that way.

This is the reason why i chose to go for defensive runes and masteries. It allows me to last hit minions easier, and i'm able to harrass without taking 300 damage from minions alone ^^

Summoner Spells

Flash. => Easy escape , initiate. Most champions will take this summonder spell over any other.
Deals true damage over time and reduces healing recieved by the character by 50%. Great for finishing off enemies, stopping them from healing .


Easy to escape with your W-skill.
If you don't want an enemy to escape. Or if you went to escape.

i Start of with a Doran's Blade

I stay in the BOT lane untill i can afford Berserker's Greaves And a Sapphire Crystal.

After this i go back to my lane and stay there untill i'm extremely low HP or totally out of mana, but first i make sure that i can afford a sheen and a ruby crystal Or when i'm doing really well a sheen and a phage.

WHY?! A sheen?! My main reason WAS Q . But now it's for the Following combo => E => Normal hit => Q => W => Normal Hit => R . This combo guarantees a Kill 90% of the time. unless you're fighting Heavy tanks such as TANK alistar for exemple.

Now considering how the game is going. I try to get a trinity force as soon as possible. After this you can really start to dominate.

Try find Your Own items from here on. But i'll give you what works very well for me

After i get a Trinity Force : I go for Another phage => Frozen Mallet.

you'll ask yourself WHY OH WHY DO YOU DO THAT?!
Ultimate survivability. Ultimate slow.
You'll slow your enemies 100% of the time. And you get 700 HP.
what's next?! Well most of the time people have surrendered by now. But i'll try continuing how i would continue ^^ => sorry for that english...
I would go for a black cleaver. To shred the armor of a tank for exemple and extra AD And A-speed.

Then i would go for a blood thirster....Life steal And still more AD.

And as a final item an infinity edge. => If you ever get there... you're probably completely dominating the game. And not in need of any more items.


This is just 1 of many item builds. You should focus on what you need to count the enemy.
If you're fighting a mordekaiser for exemple , Buy a QSS after Trinity for exemple.
You should not completely follow this item build. OR ANY ITEM BUILD ON THIS SITE FOR THAT MATTER.

Skill Sequence and farming

Early game

i wouldn't use too much skills.
If you're on a solo lane . let your enemy push , And last hit with normal attacks
Play the strike and hide game from the bushes.

Mid game

use E on a minion with low hp near an enemy , normal hit the enemy, Q the enemy , Press W => and back behind your minions. If the enemy has LOW LOW hp , normal hit after w then hit R => kill And run with W or E. or both.

so the combo is E => normal hit enemy => Q => W => run

when the enemy is low on hp the combo is E => normal hit enemy => Q => W => normal hit => R => Kill => escape with W if it's been cooldowned. or E if your position is right. (in front of the enemy minions for exemple => |<--enemy vs you-->enemy minions vs your minions<--|

Late game.

Just spam the skills you need. And escape with W.

enemy is close to escaping => E + normal hits... Couple of Q's. => Kill => Run
Teamfight? Press R.

everything is possible with these runes/masteries.

-I just had a game with veigar vs me mid. And it ended 13/1/12. (was my first time mid)
Wukong is really great vs squishy Mage champs. Or squishy champs in total @ early game.

-However i most of the time go Bot lane with a support. Or bot lane with any champ for that matter. it allows me to use the bushes for my advantage.

when the enemy is low on hp , and keeps distance. Surround yourself with alot of minions.
And use W to come closer to the enemy so you can use E . They fall for it 90% of the time.

When you're in the brush of your side. Use W to go to the enemies brush. And get behind them to string with e (combo) and R.
