Not Updated For Current Season
Hello people! I made these builds while just messing around right as Wukong came out. I discovered these by just trying different items that i though would work well. Wukong is a very fun champ as well as a great champ to try stuff out on since any ad items work well on him. The 2 builds I have in this guide are an anti-tank and a tanky dps.
For anti-tank I went for mostly armor pen but also some dodge rating and cool down reduction. You could easily change these to what you think would be better, but I found that these work well. For the Tanky DPS I got damage marks and quintessences and armor and magic resist seals and glyphs. Again you could change these out.
For AT (Anti-Tank) I went with a 21-0-9 taking armor pen and both cool down reduction and attack speed increase. In utility I got increased experience gained and 1 in increased buff duration since blue and red are very good on Wukong. For TDPS (Tanky DPS) I went with a 9-21-0 grabbing normal tanky DPS masteries.
WUKONG IS A GREAT CHAMP TO TEST RANDOM BUILDS ON! TRYING THAT COULD LEAD TO GREAT BUILDS!
For both I start with a Doran's Blade, but you could swap for a Doran's Shield if you wanted. On AT I go for Beserker's Greaves and buy a BF sword before I make my manamune. Grab Black Cleaver next and build Mandred's Bloodrazors. If the game is still going on build a Last Whisper and a Youmuu's Ghostblade for extra armor pen. You can switch the order of the YG and the MB if you find that better. For TDPS after I grab a Doran's Blade at the start I go for Boots of Swiftness and a Sunfire Cape. Next getting a Atma's Impaler and then a Force of Nature. After that Black Cleaver and Frozen Mallet complete your build.
For both builds I have Flash and Ignite. These could both be exchanged for really anything else (Even clarity because your mana starved in the beginning), but I prefer these over anything else.
For AT Crushing Blow and Nimbus Strike are main reasons that you can be an anti-tank. Crushing Blow reduces armor by 30% and along with your Black Cleaver and Armor Pen you should shred through tanks. Nimbus strike is always good because you don't have to aim directly at the target just something near it. It also increases you attack speed after charging. For TDPS your damage should be high enough to tear through squishes and tanks alike while staying alive thanks to your awesome passive. So to summarize your Q and E are primary on both AT and TDPS and that your passive is AWESOME! REMEMBER TO GET YOUR ULT AND DON'T UNDERESTIMATE ITS POWER!
So what we have learned today is that Wukong, The Monkey King is an amazing champ adn should not be underestimated. For Anti-Tank your Q and E are amazing for killing tanks and for Tanky DPS your ult is just full of win and through all of this your passive keeps you alive. Thanks for using my build and don't forget to vote and give honest feedback in the comments! If you see me in-game say hi and you will see that I don't use either of these builds but that I use something else altogether! My build is just as good as these so you may just want to use these. :)
