This is my First guide on moba, this is basically pure dps while relaying on decoy and flash for most of your survivability.

*Updated 7/29 added a tanky dps build and pics.

If only he could shoot a Kamahamaha...

Pros / Cons

+Great damage, can get over 300 base damage letting your ult do 2k dmg overall and knocks them up in the air.
+Decoy is a great escape ability and is one of your main survivability tools. Its also awesome especially when it kills someone.
+Abilities have low CD.
+He is basically Goku, even has a nimbus cloud animation.

-No CC besides ult, which kind of sucks.
-i dislike his base movement speed.
-item dependent that is why i went for greed and i keep avarice blade for awhile.

Dps Build
Greater Mark of alacrity - Basically i like attack speed.
Greater Seal of VitalityGreater Seal of Vitality - More hp at end game is always helpful.
Greater Glyph of alacrity - <3 attack speed
Greater Quintessence of DesolationGreater Quint of desolation - More armor penetration to go with Crushing blow and Yoomou's ghost blade.

Why don't i have more armor penetration? With this you will kill all squishy champs in about 2-3 secs or less with the EQ combo. What about tanks? well instead of phantom dancer and Infinity edge you should probably buy black cleaver and bloodrazor to destroy them.

Off-tank dps runes

Greater Mark of DesolationGreater Mark of desolation - Item build lacks armor penetration so i decided to put more into runes.
Greater Seal of VitalityGreater Seal of Vitality - More hp at end game is always helpful. Went for the HP tanky style so more hp is good.
Greater Glyph of clarity - Item build lacks CDR so an extra 8.1% is nice.
Greater Quintessence of DesolationGreater Quint of desolation - More armor penetration to go with Crushing blow and Yoomou's ghost blade.

Your building DPS champ, so i think the masteries a pretty much self explanatory. Also i picked greed instead of mana regen because wukong has pretty decent mana pool for him and i like to get items faster. can always get blue buff you are having mana problems.

Tank Dps - i went 0/21/9 to focus more on his survivability. i noticed in some guides people go 9/21 for the extra CDR, but i think its more necessary to get the exp buff so you can keep up other players in leveling no one likes under leveled tanks D:.

With the tank build make sure to monopolize blue buff for the extra CDR.

Skill Sequence

Nimbus strike is my main initiating ability as it gives you 40% attack speed when you max it out and does great dmg.

Decoy this is where you get to mess with people and where you can learn to survive. I highly suggest mastering this ability. If the enemy team decides to focus you in a fight, just pop this and chances are they will waste all of there stuns and ults on you. At that point you can either run away or jump back in(usually only if you have teammates there or like to live on the edge) and try to get some kills. Probably best to go back in with E then use R to finish off them.

Crushing blow is awesome giving you extra dmg of 30/60/90/120/150 and will reduce enemy armor by 30% for 3 secs.

Cyclone - Knocks people up and does huge AoE dmg if you have a lot of AD, also increase your movement speed by 5% every second so it can help you chase people or run away from them.

Stoneskin - you get more armor for each enemy champion nearby. If no enemy champions are near by you get no buffs.

C-c-c-combo breaker....

Use EQ combo when fighting 1v1 and you will basically destroy champs. If they are tanky or have stun just spam EWQ so they target your decoy, until they are dead.

Decoy + Flash - Great for running away/saving yourself and to flank behind enemy lines in team fights. Hate those annoying mages in the back? if your ult is up to the 2k dmg limit ((200+300)x 4) or close its basically a free kill. Just W where there tank is charging, flash in the back E then R and after they die run away as if the rest of the team is still alive they will probably focus you.

Also play smart and you can greatly harass people with EW.

Summoner Spells

Mains spells:

Flash is great with decoy for escaping and attacking.

Exhaust is good against all champs and great for the start/ganking/chasing.


Ghost - Great for chasing people or retreating (would replace flash with this)

Teleport - Great for helping defending a lane, pushing or ganking.

These are really the only abilities i use.

DPS Items


Doran's blade - i get this first because it gives you 100 extra health, 10 attack dmg, and 3% life steal.

Berserker's Greaves - more attack speed.

The Brutalizer - CDR, attack dmg, more armor pene. great for laning against tanks at the beginning.

Avarice blade - i get this for the gold mainly, crit helps a lot also, but wukong is kind of item dependent so the faster you get your items the stronger you are going to be.

Vampiric Scepter - life steal

Bloodthirster - life steal, attack dmg, also make sure you stack your kills for this later it will help you get over that 300 AD so you can do 2k ult.

Zeal - i like movement and attack speed. gives more crits too.

Youmuu's ghost blade - Crits, Armor pene, and CDR + active movement speed and att speed<3

Phantom dancer - look at zeal.

Infinity edge - lost more attack dmg, more crits, bigger crits.

Shurelya's ReverieShureleya's Reverie - Nice health boost, more CDR to spam abilities. health and mana regen.

Side note - Try to get blue buff when you can as you will probably never run out of mana with it and your abilities will always be up.

Situational items

If they other team has a ton of CC:

Get Merc. Trends instead of Berserker's Greaves for the magic resist and tenacity.

Get banshee veil after bloodthirster i would say for the shield hp/mana and magic resist.

If there team is tanky:

Buy black cleaver and blood razor instead of Infinity edge and phantom dancer.

If you are getting destroyed by there melee attackers:

Buy thornmail and banshee veil probably best to sacrifice phantom dancer.

Tank Items

Doran's blade - i start off with this like dps for the extra hp/att/lifesteal.

Merc. trends - every tank should have these o; unless they have 0 cc or mages then get the CDR boots.

Warmog's armor - lots HP adn Hp regen make you uber tanky and if you get it near the start you will have the bonus hp/regen near the end.

Frozen mallet - Get some attack and more hp + the slow effect is killer to other champs.

Black clever - More attack dmg/ attack speed/ armor shredding capabilities. Helps tare through tanks and squishy champs especially when combined with crushing blow

Madred's bloodrazor - went with this instead of atmas because you it gives you att/att speed/armor and does a bonus 4% dmg based on the enemy champs max hp per hit. with this, black cleaver, and your other armor pene you can destroy tanks and basically any champion that gets in your way.

Atma's impaler - would go for this if you lack kills/game is going fast. gives armor/crit/ and does 2% bonus dmg based on your max hp.

Last item:

This is the situational item where you get based on what the other team is like-

Banshee veil - if they have a lot of cc, mages. Can also just get if someone has a annoying ability you want to block or need some extra hp.

Thornmail - get this if there whole team is ad or your teammates decided to feed a ad champ.

Force of nature - if there whole team is mages the extra magic resist is nice.

Frozen Heart - if your pwning and want your abilities to cool down faster

Bloodthrister - for the lifesteal and extra attack dmg if your doing well against the other team and feel you just need a higher dmg output.

Also if you are still having survivability problems early on get a banshee veil or whatever you need before black cleaver if you need the extra defense.

He is a fun champ to play with and is hard to kill if you are good with decoy. Does awesome dmg and has a great ult. Try out the build and see how you like it.

Here are some of my games. It hasnt been all this great had some team working together problems and whatnot. That why we lost the top one, but he is a pretty awesome champ for those who want to try him. Also the bottom game is the first game i played with him, notice how the deaths decreased suddenly its all thanks to learning how to use decoy.
