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.
CURRENTLY IN PROGRESS. GIVE ME TIME AND I WILL FINISH IT. THANKS
From this point of view, to me he is like a talon, except not as squishy.
Okay so from here. Your rune choices will want to be for who you are fighting against.
Later on i will address situational runes, but for now here i will put the runes i most commonly use.
My Most basic Rune set when playing Wukong (TOP LANE)
Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage
Greater Mark of Attack Damage - I use these marks because it gives Wukong such a strong early game, and the armor reduction from his Crushing Blow in my opinion makes using armor pen runes pointless.
Greater Seal of Armor - Basic Seals for Top lanes as it seems every plays AD Bruisers top.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration - Wukong doesn't necessarily need mana regen, but if you end up spamming too much you will wind up with mana problems, and the only mana item i would suggest getting on wukong is a Sheen or a Banshee's Veil.
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage - Same reason as Greater Mark of Attack Damage. Simply because it gives wukong a very strong early game, and he already has a very strong armor reduction spell.
greater mark of desolation - As i addressed earlier, Wukong does not need armor pen, and if he does he should just build it. Greater Mark of Attack Damage gives Wukong a much stronger early game. But these are still "okay" runes to use.
greater seal of replenishment - For those pushover lanes *cough* Gangplank*cough*, that you know you will be winning therefore being able to spam your spells will help you zone, and win your lane.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist - When you don't think you'll be needing the mana regen, and need some more late game defence.
greater quintessence of desolation - Same reasons as greater mark of desolation
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed - Very fun runes. Allow you to zone those squishy tops, and greater early escapability with Decoy.
Countering and Dealing with Counters
Here i will be going over how to deal with certain Champions. Some are very easy to push out and zone, while others can be a challenge, and you will have to try to stay even, farm, and let your jungler gank.
- If you want to try to beat him, the best time is early game, as Shen has a pretty weak early game. Unless if he starts with a Ruby Crystal or Doran's Shield
- FARM FARM FARM FARM FARM, Shen will most likely not be able to completely push you out of lane.
- Dodge that Taunt. Trust me
- Early game: Dodge his Q or fight him around minions to cripple his early game damage
- Rush a Wriggle's Lantern and Ninja Tabi
- Let him push the lane, and trade damage well
CREDITS where credit is due.
