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.
Here comes the Monkey!
Wukong is really interesting champion, for me he is not classical DPS as he has many abilities to become a good support. He is GREAT in teamfights, especially while fighting against team with many tanks due to his Crushing Blow which reduces armor by 30%! Also his ulti is just imba against group of enemies that dont focus on him, after building him kinda tanky he could get more than 400 dmg/s in his ulti, and that means maximal amount of damage being. 1600 in perfect conditions.
But what if your team gets banged anyway? There goes your Decoy, just run a little bit slower to allow your team escape and then run into the side alley and use it. you can save your *** easily and help your teammates by the occasion. Also you can use it in a winning teamfight by going in attacking few times and gaining attention and then using it.
To be a tank killer we surely need armor penetration so we get Quintessences and marks for it. Then we'd like to get some dodge chance and possibly attack speed.
I go with that masteries to be able to survive inside the cyclon of teamfight, Wukong for me isnt 1v1 champion, he shines brigthest in ganks.
Mine choice of spells can be very weird but i just like that heal in combination of decoy, if you prefer flash or something you can surely take it. The second spell ignite deals damage that our monkey cannot, i dont find him really offensive so i take that to cover that disadvantage.
You got to remember that if you wont fight against champions too much early you shouldnt get decoy early, it becomes useful around 5th lvl. At first we develop Nimbus strike and Crushing blow. Nimbus strike preferably earlier, as it can damage few opponents and its pretty good if you want to harass someone or run away. Ulti needs to be maxed as fast as possible, because at 1 lvl it deals ridiculous amount of dmg, but at 3rd its unstopabble.
Items for the King
So, we begin with Ninja Taby to get that dodge chance and armor, its pretty cheap and useful, if you prefer to be more offensive go with berserker greaves.
Next one should give us some more mobility and attack speed, thats why i choose zeal. It makes running away and chasing lot easier.
We should continue to build somehow defensive so i'd reccomend phage, it gives you lot of health if youre low lvl, and grants us ability to slow enemies down, which is almost a CC that our Monkey needs so badly.
Then if you really want to hit tanks hard you should get Last Whisperer, awesome item for our Wukong.
Now you see how goes the situation, its your time to pick if you want to gain some health or rather more damage.
Ok so we build offensively, grab your Black cleaver to get even more armor penetration and finish your phantom dancer, that should teach them a lesson.
I'm of a threatened kind!
To get some defensive abilities you should finish Frozen Mallet, maybe thats offensive item anyways but you got some def earlier so...
Next item can be Sunfire Cape, I dont know if its passive dmg applies to our clone but thats some badass armor and health!
