However Wukong is a very item dependant Champion. He really needs his Items in order to succeed. Also he does have very limited Crowd Control. His Ultimate does knock-up targets, which is good but that´s all the Crowd Control he has. He does also have no built-in sustain. Yes, his passive heals him, but only a bit and only if you engage on the enemy. So if enemies do poke him down over and over again, usually he is not able to deal with it to effectively.
All in all he has his weakside but still, he is super strong!
Divine Sunderer is your Mythic in this Build. This item gives you everything Wukong needs! It has HP in it, Damage and CDR. Not only this, the way you build it, is also really good for you. And do not forget about the passive of this item, which is armor/magic penetration! So the synergy between Wukong and this item is really high! It helps you to deal with tanky opponents as it does damage depending on the targets max health! At your first back you should buy ruby cristal and a longsword. Do not rush Sheen even if you can. Get at you second back and then continue finishing this item!
Your second item should be Sterak´s Gage! It´s an overall good item for Wukong as it provides HP, damage and a shield! It will be really helpful as you get tankier and will be able to stay for a long time in these fights that will happen at the mid game as you guys fight for Drakes or Heralds.
After this you should look to get Ravenous Hydra! It will help you to push out your lane and group with your team to win these teamfights! Because of the AOE damage that Hydra provides you can easy kill the minions and push out!
Anything else after these three items, is situtional and you should pick your next item according to what you need. But in general i like to get a Black Cleaver. With the new passive that Black Cleaver provides, you will not only shred their armor, but you will also stack up movement speed that will help you sticking to your target!
You can finish off your build with a Guardian Angel! This way the enemies have to kill you basically twice in order to get rid of you!
Here is a video as an example for this Wukong Build:
Your second choice should be Ignite! I know most people run Teleport on Top to participate on teamfights that accure on the bot lane, but i like to run Ignite as it increases your kill potential. Dominating your lane is key, this way you can take turret asap and push your lane out and implement a slow push that will give you enough time to roam!
How to behave on Lane and manage the waves is explained in this video:
An more advanced Option to combo your Abilies is to start the fight with your "E" ability and set an autoattack between your E and Q and then follow up with the "Q" ability. After that keep hitting them with autoattacks with that increased Attackspeed. Whenever you feel your enemy is gonna return a bunch of damage, activate your "W" Ability and run away if you do need to.
Another Option is, when you are close to a target, you can use your "E" and "Q" ability in a way, that the "Q" ability can be just slightly seen. So if you time it correctly it seems like you are not using the "Q" ability. However this one needs a little bit practice.
Also when you are next to a target, let´s say you are sitting in a bush and someone facechecks it. You hit them first with an normal Autoattack, followed by the "Q" ability, which is an autoreset and then jump on them with your "E" ability and follow up with a bunch of Autoattacks with that increased Attackspeed from your "E" ability.
Another one, that includes your Ultimate would be to E on the target, autoattack it and Q next into your first Ult! You dash to the side with your W, leaving a clone on your position and Q the target again into your second Ult.
The combos are shown in a specific video that i made:
For your Skillorder you first wanna put a point into your "E" and leave it like that. You wanna maximize your Q first and put points into E each time you can´t skill up Q!
Crushing Blow [Q]
The second Ability you should take after the "E" Ability is the "Q" Ability. And from then you maximize this ability first! Because it does good damage, the cooldown of it decreases with each hit and it applies Armorpenetration.
Then you wanna move on to your "W" Ability and just put one point in the early and maximize it as the last ability. This ability creates a Wukong Clone that helps you to juke enemies and stack up your passive and Conqueror faster.
Of course you should put a point in your ultimate whenever you can at six, eleven and sixteen.
Triumph will you help you out with sustain in teamfights as it heals you for each enemy that got killed.
Legend: Alacrity will give you more attackspeed so you can apply more autos in a very short duration of time!
Last Stand will increase your damage the lower you are on health! Since you are a Bruiser that stay in teamfight for a long time, you will also take a lot of damage during these fights. Eventually you will drop low but don´t be afraid! Your passive will give you more Armor and heal you even more and with Last Stand you will do more damage on top of that!
For your second rune tree you should pick up Resolve runes!
Bone Plating blocks a lot of engage damage from champions that like to combo their abilites and then back off! Perfect example would be Garen!
In some cases you wanna swap out Bone Plating with Second Wind! This is the case whenever you face a champion that can poke you! Perfect example for this would be Quin Top!
Your second rune here should be Overgrowth. It will give you more health throughout the game and more health means stronger passive!
