With Wukong there are many different pathways for his mastery tree because he is an extremely versatile champion. I went 21/9/0 for a more offensive build since he is naturally quite tanky.

Skills

Ability Explanation
  • Stone Skin: This passive gives Wukong extra armor and magic resistance when around enemy champions this allows Wukong to initiate team fights pretty good.
  • Crushing Blow: This skill is one of Wukong damage dealer when you have an item like Sheen or Trinity Force you have an amazing burst to be reckoned with.
  • Decoy: This sill is what Wukong is known for it allows you to juke and invade enemy territory with ease. It is also a good punching bag as it can absorb enemy ultimate and enemy Ignite or Exhaust
  • Nimbus Strike: This is Wukong main chasing ability as it allows you to basically blink into enemy champions and unload all of your damage in a short amount of time.
  • Cyclone: This is an amazing ultimate that allows you to support your teammates this ultimate brings enemy champions up into the air allowing ally champions like Katarina and her Death Lotus to deal amazing damage.

Items

Items
Starting Item
The reason why I choose these to start out lane is because Wukong has no sustain from his skill and if you have no sustain from skills like Irelia and you start out with Doran's Blade your setting your self up for failure.
Core Items
  • : Gives Wukong an amazing burst potential
  • : Gives you insane ad full stacked and nice life vamp :3
  • : Very good against CC and nice magic resist.
Optional Items

  • Gives a balanced stats between magic resist and armor but the true use of this item is giving you a second life every 5 minutes.

  • Highest Magic resist you can get in the game and gives you a nice health regen that works well with your warmogs armor.
  • Another good item that can shred armor. A very good alternate to The Black Cleaver

  • Great item against melee auto attackers.

How to play

Teamfights

For Wukong your role in team fights is to initiate them with your Nimbus Strike then using Cyclone to lift enemy champions up allowing your team to quickly burst them down afterwards you should be aiming for enemy champions that are squishy to easily secure victory in team fights.

Summary

Wukong is an extremely fun champion to play he is able to initiate team fights with easy and can survive enemy burst. If you have any comments, or questions on my guide please PM or leave a comment I don't bite unless your a troll.

Please remember to upvote if you liked the guide and only downvote if you feel that I have mislead you on how I play Wukong but if you do please inform me of why it made you feel that way and if I have made any grave mistakes with this guide.
