Not Updated For Current Season
I play Wukong as a solo top champ.
I have played Wukong for quite a while and he is one of my favorite champions.
In this guide u will learn how i play him and i will give u tips to be better with him.
I go with armor pen runes, mana reg glyphs and seals and hp regen quints.
I use these runes to sustain in lane, my build is very expensive.
The full price for my build is ca 15500 gold, This means that u will need to last hit very good, and thats why i go with hp and mana reg runes, so i wont get pushed out of lane and loose creeps.
I go 9-21-0 just because of the extra tankiness u get lategame, since my build doesnt focus on hp u will be very easy to kill lategame, thats why u need the extra hp from juggernaut and believe me, it has saved me before.
I go the extra armor pen because i play Wukong as a dps champ, u dont get up in the dmg from a ad carry but lategame u will deal crits up to 600 dmg on basic attacks.
Pros / Cons
One of the best things with Wukong is his harass, first u got a jump to your enemy, then u can crit on your Q and with your clone, u can easily get away without any damage done to u.
He is great in teamfights, with a aoe ult with amazing damage and a knockup wich will allow u to engage and get away when they chase u.
his passive isnt very good when u fight 1 v 1, i say his passive is more of a hit and run passive, u jump in the middle of teamfight get 40 armor and MR, ult and run away.
I start off with boots and 3 hp pots, i go this because u need that speed to survive ganks and hp pots because u dont need any mana with mana reg runes.
the first time u go back u will need to buy brutalizer and if u afford buy phage, if u dont afford just buy ruby crystal.
Its when u get brutalizer u can start to harass your opponent till u can kill him with your ulti.
agter u bought phage u buy youmuus and then rush trinity force, last whisper is the last dmg item u buy, for lategame u buy GA and FoN just for the tankiness and nice revive.
U wanna max your Q first becasue this is your main harass/damage skill.
The next skill u wanna max is your Nimbus strike.
upgrade your ult at lvl 6,11 and 16.
U only really need a point in W from the start, it will keep u out of scary situations, like ganks and when u get out after u have harassed
I take Exhaust and Flash, i take these skills for early game kills,
flash is a good initiation skill and will help u to get away too,
exhaust is one of the best summoner spell if u ask me, the damage reduction and the slow will stop anyone for a couple of seeconds.
I dont use ignite, i dont really like using it myself.
There is spells that work well with Wukong but i have grown accustomed to exhaust flash.
This is where Wukong really shines, the ability to easily jump to their ad carry and wreck their whole team with your ulti, my build is a dps Wukong,u should jump to their ad or ap carry ( the on who does the most dmg) then u Q and ult. if u get targeted u can easily use your decoy and let your team clean up.
Remember to farm well, the build is very expensive and to get it u need to farm well.
The farming shouldnt be a problem with my runes, u can allow yourself to take a few hits with the hp regen, and u can harass with your mana reg.
The point is to stay in lane, get overlvled and u will crush in teamfights.
