Hey guys, whats up, my name is Phlight(no intentions of taking Phreak) and this is my first build and I decided to go with Wukong as he is one of my favorite champions up to date. So please make sure to comment and like or dislike and tell me what you think and tell me what could be wrong. Also, I really want to thank jhoijhoi for helping me with the bbcodes in my build and once again hope you like it.

Squishy till late game
Most of his necessary items are expensive
Incorrect Ulti can lead to fail

When I first played him, I chose to play with Armor Pen Marks and Quins but then changed to Attack Damage marks and kept my armor pen Quins to kill tanks easier because you'll definitely require it for early game pwnage. Armor Seals to take less damage of course from AD champs and Magic Resist Glyphs to take less damage from Ap Champs. All of this is very essential.

Yes, 21-9-0 is great because the defense is really helpful for top ranked. Not much to say here, so lets continue.

Unique Skills

Now, Wukong is a different kind of champion. No other champion has abilities like Decoy and you can use to escape or to your advantage. Use it wisely and you can come out on top. The other really good ability is Cyclone which I will explain in the Team Work Tab.

Team Work

Now for teamwork you will need to be cautious and wary when to use Cyclone. It is ,of course, your ultimate and the best ability you have. You should use it when the enemy team is low or to initiate team fights. Hope you knew this without me telling you. Now to farming.

Now how you farm is using Nimbus Strike. The attack speed is incredible but use it only to push because the mana cost is incredible till you get to around 11 and you'll want to save it for cyclone. If your not in a rush, then just hit them normally and use Crushing Blow on the big tank minions as it is most useful then. Then when coming up to turret start using Crushing Blow on the turret because it is very useful in getting the job done and winning the game for your team. All you need is a good farm.

Item Build and Skills

Some people go Crit strike and Attack Speed and I wouldn't recommend that considering his abilities and stuff are more attack damage and have enough with two BT's. Two BT's? Is that necessary? No, its not, but is recommended considering the damage output from crushing blow is INCREDIBLE from having two FULL BT's. Nothing to say about Trinity Force. Its amazing. Get it.
Frozen Mallet is good for more health to withstand teamfights while using cyclone. Now the skill sequence is important. Reason I do Nimbus full first is because you will be using it more often than others and because crushing blow will mess up at times and you wont hit them.
So the build sequence is

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Now for dominion play, you'll want to build it the same way just it has to be a little different considering there is no Bloodthirster. so you'll want Sanguine Blade instead of The Bloodthirster and you'll want Entropy instead of The Bloodthirster. Just remember that and you'll come out on top in dominion. If you need more info tell me in the comments.

Ranked Play

I would recommend this build in ranked considering I have used it and it ended with a score of 14-4-10. The thing about it is that you have to be 10x more careful about the decisions you make. With ALL of your abilities. Know when to use cyclone. If you use it right, your team will destroy. I'm telling you now, cyclone is SO essential to use right because despite its power, it still can suck if used incorrectly.

So like I said Comment and like if this build worked for you. If it didn't tell me where the problems were and I will assist you. I will post pics soon and hope you guys like me dominion build on him if you like this one. I'll make sure to keep updating when you guys tell me to and I will work on it. Thanks for reading and good luck on the Fields of Justice
