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.
Introduction of this amazing Guide
Hey guys, this is my first Wukong build that I would like to share with everyone. This is my first build at all so I will try to explain as detailed as I can. Wukong so far is my favorite melee fighter and he can be a great carrier but like all games you need teamwork. So no trolling with your teammates you don't need to be fighting your team you need to focus your enemies. And play it safe don't be aggressive and don't play it too safe you want to know your lane buddy and when he thinks its a good time to jump one of those opponents.
Runes for this amazing Champion
So for Runes I get 9 Greater Seals of Malice, 9 Greater Marks of Desolation, 9 Greater Glyphs of Furor, 2 Greater Quintessences of Desolation and 1 Greater Quintessences of Strength.
This rune build is focused on critical chance which is great for any physical melee character, but Wukong's passive on the Nimbus Strike can help a lot with the extra attack speed for a couple of seconds to fit a few crits.
The Marks are the best for armor penetration, the more penetration the better damage your melee will put off. And with other critical builds you always want crit damage into it which is why all my glyphs are the greater Furors.
There are actually a couple of options with the quintessences you can either have my 2 Greater Quintessences of Desolation and Strength or you can replace Strength with Vigor or go All Desolation. There are many choices but I feel this build really suites Wukong.
Not much to say about these masteries these are usually the masteries everyone gets for any physical melee champion.
To start off I buy a Doran's blade just for that extra attack damage and little lifesteal. (Also a note if you have enough gold to buy just one item for example boots of speed go back and get it early game and then you can save up for anything after getting Trinity Force.) The order is Doran's Blade, (health potions) Boots of Speed ---> Boots of Lucidity, Get a phage after boots and build for Trinity force ex: Phage then Sheen and Zeal and then get Trinity. Next item should be a BloodThirster and get back on the field as soon as you can farming minions to max that item in stacks, Get a Phantom Dancers for more Crit, And a Infinity Edge. Now you can sell your Doran's Blade for a Black Cleaver or a MadreadsBlood Razor. By the time you get to Infinity Edge you can solo Baron Nashor.
Your priority skill that you should level up is Nimbus Strike with its addition physical damage, your secondary is Crushing Blow which helps a lot against turrets and reducing enemy armor and with the rune build I have that's pretty good armor penetration and a lot of crits also. You really only need 1 point into Decoy because it's just a escape tool which shouldn't be relied on a lot. And of course put in points at 6, 11 and 16 for Ultimate.
I take ghost and exhaust my masteries give me bonus in both of these spells and do great for chasing or escaping these two spells alone can give me 5 or more kills in a game.
This is my favorite build of Wukong and hope you enjoyed it and try it out if need be I will come back and edit this to make it look better I am still fairly new at making builds, if this gets good reviews I will make a Tryndamere build as well.
And if you need to get from one point of the map to another you need to atleast jungle a mob in while passing by them so you can get extra gold and experience which helps alot.
