How should Wukong be built in your opinion?

So recently I've been messing around with Wukong, haven't for a while, and I usually build him as a MetaGolem (Tri, Atmogs, Omen, FoN/Veil, boots{varying}), but I decided to do a complete AD build for fun in a normal draft recently, and I was impressed with the outcome. It never really clicked for me that Wu's ult did as much damage as it states, and so I tried out a couple more games and once again was surprised with how much DPS output occured through his ultimate in team fights.

So the question that is up for debate atm is, when viewing Glass Cannon Wukong's ultimate damage in late game team fights along with its utility and initation ability, do you see Wu better as a bruiser or a AD carry?

If you have a way to keep yourself safe or keep them in it, like J4 ult, go for it. The damage is stupid good and really worth it.

Dufftime will say pretty much the same thing.

The thing is staying alive. There's no best build for a champion, but a best build for each person.

If you're doing well with a glass cannon monkey king Wukong (playing HoN a lot), just keep it. You have to see what is destryoing you and solve those problems

In my team we run a lot of Wukong, and in organized, you can kill everyone before they even hit the ground :D

Solo Q is a bit different.

I play him both ways, depending on what the situation calls for. If I'm solo top and we have a tanky jungler like Alistair or Mao etc. etc. I'll probably go more glass cannon. His damage is quite obscene really, and he is a tower destroyer with Crushing Blow. Don't get me started on teamfights, because Wukong is downright OP in them.

If I am solo top and our jungler is Master Yi or Fiora, heck yes I'm going tanky bruiser.

The great thing is, even if you build straight bruiser you are still incredibly powerful in teamfights because of your ult and your ability to stealth --> appear right on top of the AD carry / AP carry and annihilate them.

Glass Cannon super strong.
Your passive makes you pretty tanky and if you need to go more tankier you can just build maw or wriggles and still get damage paird with resistances. or ga.

So if going glass cannon, would you build up AD first or do a tryndamere style and go with some AS/Crit?

Go for AD. Your ultimate doesn't scale off AS or crit, and you need to spin in order to win.
