Just looking over Probuilds.net at the Wukong games I noticed that a lot of the professionals take an AP rune page. Iirc, Decoy is the only skill that scales off ap so what is the explanation for this? Does it really help him clear that much faster? Just a little confused.

Thanks for the amazing sigs Brynolf,JEFFY40HANDS, Katoki, and myself

Only AP people run in their runes on Wukong is Armor Pen...

Something is bugged on the website. You do not run AP on Wukong. I can ask Nightblue3 about it later. I am 100% on this though.

They could've just forgotten to change their rune page, too :P :P :P

A bit off topic here, but why would Dyrus max Flame Breath instead of Burnout?

welll what's the point of maxing burnout, if you're never going to get in melee range of your opposing laner? I can see why he would max burnout if he was laning against someone with stronk kiting potential like kayle, teemo, nidalee, or jayce. It'd be awfully hard for a shyvana to get up close and personal with those people.

Maxing flame breath i guess would allow for SOME harassment to be done, and also safer wave clearing

you would still max burnout even vs a non-melee opponent because it allows you to push waves into their tower and it also is your best ability damage wise for ganks and such.

I've tried E max against ranged champions and it's very underwhelming. W is better because even if they're ranged once you hit 6 you can all in them with Dragon form and W's base damage is high enough to rip squishy ranged champions apart.

You max Flame Breath sometimes because it gives the highest possible burst from E + W + Q since normally you only get 1-2 ticks of W off in quick trades. I think what you max is dependent on playstyle, matchup, rune/mastery setting, etc.
