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.
Wukong is a relatively new champion on The Fields of Justice but he has already left his impression. He is a very versatile champ. With Crushing Blow he is capable of farming well, unleashing devastating damage and smashing towers. Decoy is a great ability that can mislead your enemies and cause them to drop their abilities on your clone, chase you in the wrong direction, tank tower hits for you and many other things which will definitely be discussed in length. Nimbus strike is a great way to close the gap between you and your opponents, farming minions, causing a great deal of harassment and distracting your opponents. Cyclone is a very interesting ultimate and is great in team fights and for chasing your opponent while dealing out great amounts of damage. Cyclone is one of the most useful abilities around for knocking enemy champions out of their ultimates. With this ultimate Wukong takes the win out of team "push R" to win. I'm bad at introductions, so let just get started, however you can get the lore part if your interested.
"During the chaos of the Rune Wars, an enormous runestone was lost deep within the Plague Jungles. It remained there, untouched for centuries, emanating a potent magic which infused nearby wildlife with sentience and vitality. A group of monkeys who were particularly empowered by it came to worship the stone, and their leader - a wise sage - became convinced that he could harness its power to make the monkeys immortal. He performed an elaborate ritual, but things didn’t go as he expected. The runestone was destroyed, and instead of granting immortality, it produced Kong, a monkey who carried in his heart the strength and power it had contained. Kong was driven by an unquenchable desire for greatness. He sought out every beast and monster the Plague Jungles could offer, eager to find a worthy opponent, but none offered the challenge he craved. He asked the sage for advice, and learned about a legend of hairless monkeys to the north who, with wits and might, had bent the world to their will.
Wukong left, journeying north, determined to discover if the legend was true. He crossed the Southern Wastes and then the Great Barrier. On his way, he happened upon Master Yi, who was deep in meditation. Kong asked him who the strongest warrior in the north was, and Yi told him about the League of Legends. The tale intoxicated Kong, a place where he could battle the strongest fighters in the world was, to him, paradise. Kong asked Yi to introduce him to this League, and to teach him the ways of humans, so that he could be a fitting champion. In return, he would honor Yi by using Yi's Wuju style to become the greatest warrior Runeterra had ever seen. Admiring his passion, Yi agreed, but under the condition that Kong would one day teach the lessons of Wuju to a pupil of his own. In the spirit of this agreement, he renamed Kong ''Wukong'', and gave him a weapon suited to his unusual nature - an enchanted staff that the young Doran had crafted. The weapon was an unrivalled masterpiece. Guided by Yi, Wukong joined the League of Legends to prove himself as the best, and to show the world the true power of Wuju.
When leveling up Wukong's abilities I start by taking a point in NIMBUS STRIKE. Than CRUSHING BLOW. I get DECOY last. A good damage combo is activate CRUSHING BLOW heat whit NIMBUS STRIKE than CRUSHING BLOW. Good damage.

Wukong The basics
Cost: 6300 IP Points or 975 RP Points
Top Three Summoner Spells.
Exhaust-Great for lowering your enemys damage when 1v1, great for saving team mate on lane and great for chasing.
Flash-One of my favourite spells, because it's great for escaping ganks, catching enemies/
Ignite-Very usefull when you need that little extra damage, especially early game.
Most Have Items.
Phantom Dancers-55% Attack speed and your ulti makes one ******** fast attack speed, 30% Critical Strike with Infinity Edge gives u more crits then non-crits and 15% movement speed for basic speed of 450-460.
Infinity Edge-Attack speed is nothing without good damage, so you will literally feel the difference when u have this bad boy equiped. And ofcourse 25% critical chance for more crits. But it's not over yet. Now that you have mega critical chance, with this item, your crits deal 250% instead of 200%. How awesome is that?
The Black Cleaver-Pretty much simple Wukong needs good attack speed and good damage. This items does it both.
The Bloodthirster-Great damage and very good life steal. If you kill minions alot and you dont die, this items gives u friking 100 damage and 25% life steal.
The item build for Wukong ensures that he can cause plenty of damage in a team fight or when chasing down an enemy champion and it also gives him the ability to live as long as possible with little effort. Start off with Doran's Blade then grab boots. I usually go with Boots of Mobility because Wukong's ability to get to fights and chase down opponents is absolutely crucial. If you would prefer different boots, Mercury's Treads and Berzerker's Greaves then those are great options as well. After your boots are done rush a Trinity Force building it in this order: Zeal, Phage then Sheen. At this point you can chase but you are SQUISHY, at this point build a Guardian Angel, this item is amazing on any champion. Next you should build a Youmuu's Ghostblade, this will provide you with better cool down rates, more damage, more critical strikes and one of the most underrated active item abilities in the game. If you are doing well staying alive build yourself and Infinity Edge or a Black Cleaver, both are great ideas. If you need more survivability take an Atma's Impaler or a Force of Nature depending on the enemy teams damage output.
I do not feel that runes are very different for Wukong then from any other DPS champion. I take armor penetration marks, armor per level seals, cool down reduction per level glyphs and armor penetration quintessences. It is also a good idea to take magic resist per level glyphs in order to make him more tanky.
Most Have Runes.
Greater Mark of Desolation Extra damage you crucialy need early gameGreater Glyph of Celerity Already low cooldowns with these glyphs...Say no moreGreater Seal of Clarity For the mana problems. Great addon early game.Greater Quintessence of Desolation Same as marks...
Greater Mark of Furor 21% more damage with critical strikesGreater Glyph of Warding Magic Resistance boost for better defensive stats

This is one of the most amazing aspects of Wukong. What's better than being able to juke your opponents, force them to accidentally drop important skills on a harmless apparitions, or lead them into a team fight? The answer is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Learning how to use Decoy is crucial to being a master of Wukong. As mentioned above Decoy is great for fooling your opponents. When used properly it can also tank tower hits for you. But my most favorite thing to do with Decoy is watch enemies drop their exhaust on it. A great way to offensively use decoy is to sit in a bush or out of enemy view and drop your decoy, this strategy will allow you a precious few seconds in which your enemy will not even know you are even in their area. This strategy is one of the best ways to get the drop on your least favorite squishy enemy champ. Take your time to experiment with Decoy and learn how to screw the enemy over in various different way's. Using Decoy to its full potential is what separates the good Wukong's from the great ones!
He is fun to play with decoy is fun to use to make people mad. Also is is a good framer not like Yi but he is better than most champs?
TO farm use (W). Because of the masteries and Philosopher's Stone you can use your (W) to farm with. When there only is 1 creep. But when there is 3 minions you can Auto Attack all 3 of them down so your (W) to get 3 kills with 1 ability.
This is my first build and I definitely vouch for its effectiveness. Hope this guide is helpful, it's definitely the one I use every game. Wukong is a great champion and he has a ton of different ways to be useful. I hope u have have playing him.
