Summoner Spells Back to Top

I decided that TP is way better on wukong now, only take ignite if you are playing against a mundo or an aatrox, TP is great to return back to lane and keep farming

New Runes Back to Top

Runes are personal preference.

Electrocute.png?width=64 & Sudden%20Impact.png?width=64 are ALWAYS needed

Masteries Back to Top


Also i got a usefull comment of someone 'Legendary Guarding' in Resolve tree is also a perfect option if not against a lot of cc!!


EDIT: 12/18/0 IS ALSO VERY GOOD FOR LANE DOMINANCE

Allright let me give u a quick breakdown of the abilities


monkeykingdoubleattack.png = ACTIVE: Wukong's next basic attack within 5 seconds has 300 range, deals bonus physical damage and reduces his target's armor for 3 seconds

The important thing to note here is that Wukong's Q is an AA reset. Even though this has an Armor pen effect, this is not the nr 1 priority of maxing your skills.


monkeykingdecoy.png = Wukong enters invisibility for 1.5 seconds and leaves behind a decoy of himself which, after 1.5 seconds, vanishes and deals magic damage to all nearby enemies. 

Wukong's monkeykingdecoy.png is a very unique ability but the higher the elo gets, the worse it gets. People will see through it but it's still a very usefull ability

monkeykingnimbus.png =  Wukong dashes on a cloud to the target enemy and sends out images to attack up to two additional enemies near the primary target, dealing physical damage to each enemy struck. Upon hitting his target, Wukong gains bonus attack speed for 4 seconds.  

This ability is your most important, the Attack speed makes it HUGE for trading and should be your first priority of maxing

monkeykingspintowin.png = Wukong spins around for up to 4 seconds, losing the ability to use abilities and basic attacks but dealing physical damage to all nearby enemies every second. Enemies affected by Cyclone for the first time are briefly  knocked up. During Cyclone, Wukong gains 5% bonus movement speed every half second, up to a maximum of 40% bonus movement speed after 4 seconds.

This is what makes wukong such an incredible strong teamfighter. Fun trivia fact, if you cout the whole duration, this ability has the highest AD scaling in the game: 440% AD scaling


How to trade:

Lane trade if enemy is far away: monkeykingnimbus.png > AA > monkeykingdoubleattack.png > monkeykingdecoy.png

Lane trade if enemy is nearby: AA > monkeykingdoubleattack.png > monkeykingnimbus.png > AA > monkeykingdecoy.png

All in: monkeykingnimbus.png > AA > monkeykingdoubleattack.png > monkeykingspintowin.png .    IF YOU R FAST ENOUGH, YOU CAN CANCEL YOUR Q ANIMATION

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Against a hard lane or just new with wukong
    A less good start in my opnion, but if you feel good with it, its okay
    Because of the tank meta the dorans is a very good start

Core Items

    against full AD team
    against heavy AP
    Choose this or MAW for final item
    Wukong build i recommend Duskblade > BC > Ghostblade > GA
    Choose this or deadmans as final item
    One of the boots are perfect

Situational Items

    Not really usefull. Only if you need hard engage
    Against vlad/ swain/soraka you see where i'm going
    the sheen passive is good on wukong, but don't know if worth it to buy this item for him

Ok, since season 6. I changed a whole lot on wukong builds like
3142.png is a must now, its such a good item and gives it time to catch up on assasins

Also hydra  has fallen out off flavor IMO

VS

Aatrox

Medium

Aatrox is stronger then ppl realise bcs he is actually one of my favorite champs, he is an extreme dueler when he has his bloodwell, only fight him when he doesn't

VS

Akali

Easy

Rarely see an akali top, but she is easy. You are strong pre-6 and she is weak also at lvl 6, her W does nothing against your ult

VS

Alistar

Medium

Never played against him top, but his ulti is always annoying. if you play against him ( not likely ) try to get him before he is lvl 6

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Cho'Gath was very strong in early season 5 and he still is to this day. Cho has so much sustain and damage, not even worth to try and kill him. Just farm and ask for ganks.

VS

Darius

Hard

EXTREME HARD, darius owns you in everything, get your Q at lvl 1 here and pick TP. If enemy picks darius, never pick wukong. But if he picks before you always stay under tower and try to farm. Ask for a jungler gank asap.

Darius in 5.16 in still strong, just don't get 5stacks on you, only take him when you have 0 stacks

VS

Diana

Easy

Easy, Squishy and not that great pre 6. try to harass her when you can

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

One of those tanky champs you have to kill pre-6, at lvl 6 he will almost be unstopable, ignite is a must in this lane

VS

Ekko

Easy

Easy, just be aggresive, he can't do a lot to you

VS

Fiora

Medium

Fiora, where do i start. Annoying champ, tons of damage and early game strong. Her ult got nerfed so it shouldn't be to bad. Just run away if she ulted you ( decoy)

VS

Fizz

Medium

Fizz top is also one of those rare things, but it will be 50/50, fizz can jump out of your ult with playfull/trickster try not to get caught by his ult and you should win this lane

VS

Gangplank

Medium

With his rework, gankplank became a lot stronger with his E. His E can now keep you away from farming. Try to trade with him when he used his E. Also his W also scales with missing hp. So be carefull

VS

Garen

Hard

Annoying, but i can handle with him. Still ask a gank from your jungler, a good garen will fuck you, but a bad won't. Garen in 5.16 will be less annoying in laning phase ( nerf on his W ane E)  but even if you kill him, he might be hard to deal with since you become the villain then

VS

Gnar

Easy

easy, only poke him when he is mini-gnar, back off when he is mega-gnar, thats a golden tip :p

VS

Gragas

Medium

i put him at medium, cause i don't know anything about him, his barrel can be painfull and his ult can counter yours 

VS

Hecarim

Hard

Hecarim is one of those champions that is good against almost any champion. He has very high damage and good sustain with W and little bit tankiness. Just don't fight pre 6

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Annoying, just his turrets, but otherwise he won't be that difficult

VS

Irelia

Medium

Can be strong, but not always, try to engage her when you are a little lower % then her, so she can't stun you

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

you and j4 both need to poke, so just the best player with that champ will win 

VS

Jax

Easy

Avoid his stun and it will easy, but be carefull his ult is stronger then you think

VS

Jayce

Easy

Poke him and get away with decoy, his poke is his main damage, if he uses that then you can all-in him

VS

Kennen

Medium

I HATE kennen so hard.  Some people find it easy, but i find it hard. Kennen can poke you perma because he has no mana. Carefull for ganks and his ultimate.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Just don't let him snowball and will be easy

VS

Kindred

Easy

Kindred is a pretty weak champion in my opinion. She also will go to jungle most likely and try to force kindred out of her ult in some way. Also abuse her ult against herself and stand in it when it's going to dissapear, it will also heal you

VS

Kled

Hard

explanation comes soon

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Lee Sin got nerfed with his laning. isn't as strong anymore as in pre 5 / season 5

VS

Lissandra

Medium

Lissandra became stronger with her recent buffs. Her ult now heals her ( rito pls ) so she is way more difficult matchup then before. However, a lot of people don't know the strength of lissandra and is she is played, it's mostly mid.

VS

Lulu

Easy

Also a matchup i've never seen, but lulu is squishy, but care for her ulti, she can get a lot of hp back 

VS

Malphite

Medium

Tanky and can deal a lot of damage, carefull if he engages, their might be a jungler in this bush 

VS

Maokai

Medium

His ult is annoying in a 1v1, he uses a lot of mana, so if you see he has no mana, engage on him

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Your teacher is weak in lane, but wukong can fuck yi :). His ult owns his Meditate, so if he try's to heal up and you didn't use your ult yet, ult him to pick up the kill

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

He is INSANE, amazing sustain and damage, a good morde will give you no chance

VS

Nasus

Hard

The dog is annoying, he can do everything to fuck you up, ask a gank from your jungler to prevent him from farming

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Nautilus has a lot of damage for a tank. Just try to farm and he will run out of mana

VS

Nidalee

Easy

If she goes AP, avoid her pokes, if more bruiser you will own her, both pretty easy

VS

Nunu

Medium

You can't kill nunu, but he also can't kill you, nothing more to say here

VS

Olaf

Medium

Olaf is one of the more underrated top-laners, be carefull for him but if you got some experience with wukong, he won't be that much of a problem

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Pantheon is stronger then you are, ask an early gank, and the lane should be fine for you

VS

Poppy

Medium

Reworked poppy is a pain for wukong. if she sees you going to jump on her with monkeykingnimbus.png she will just poppyparagonofdemacia.png. If she sees you use monkeykingspintowin.png she will just poppydiplomaticimmunity.png and so onn. She isn't reall hard to kill but just avoid walls so she can't poppyheroiccharge.png you in to them.

VS

Quinn

Medium

A real lane bully in the top lane, but squishy as all other adc, so not that much of a problem

VS

Rek'Sai

Easy

Rek'sai got nerfed a shit ton and is now pretty easy to deal with

VS

Renekton

Medium

Watch Trundle: He is very strong early and you should not die to him. He will get behind if he doesn't snowball

VS

Rengar

Medium

Also annoying, he can snare you and his ult won't let you escape with W

VS

Riven

Hard

A good riven will own every wukong. Rivens stun is annoying and her shield is annoying if you try to all-in her. Ask a gank from your jungler but you can also try to engage on her before she leveled her stun ( before lvl 3 or 4 most of time)

VS

Rumble

Medium

His flamethrower does alot of damage against you, his ult is also dumb :(

VS

Ryze

Medium

Allright ryze just got q rework and oh boy is it good.

Ryze seems to be way less spammy but his damage can be pretty insane. This matchup is 50/50 but just stay behind your minions because his Q does shit loads of dmg. Only go in when you have a favorable trade and his lvl 6 is not as scary as it used to be.

My tip: play ryze once (against bots) and then you understand the matchup more

VS

Shaco

Medium

AP shaco in top. Just one annoying fucker. Only jump on him if you know where his Jack in the box is.

VS

Shen

Easy

also easy, his taunt can do nothing since you have a nice amount of damage

VS

Shyvana

Medium

her W can do more damage then you think because you are a melee, carefull for that

VS

Singed

Medium

don't get flinged, let him use a lot of mana, but don't get poisoned and the tip that no-one ever told you before: don't chase him :P

VS

Sion

Medium

carefull for his Q, if you get caught by it, you lose a lot of hp, his shield is annoying cause he can choose to do damage, or shield

VS

Swain

Medium

Swain is also at medium, cause of his E and Q poke, pick ignite for this matchup to counter his ult

VS

Tahm Kench

Medium

Oh boy, tahm kench. I've been playing him a lot lately and i must say that he is a very strong toplaner. He has high dmg against tanks, but since in early you are not really tanky, you'll be fine. But be carefull, he still does a lot of damage

VS

Talon

Easy

talon uses a lot of mana, more then you do if he uses to much mana to farm, punish him for it and deal some damage

VS

Teemo

Easy

Just leave, its teemo :).

ok, for real now. Teemo's blind is annoying, ask a gank from your jungler and don't go alone, if he blind you when you solo, decoy away

VS

Trundle

Medium

Trundle is the KING of 1v1. One of the strongest early game toplaners together with renekton. If he doesn't snowball, he will fall of in late game, just don't let him kill you

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

its trynda, you need to punish him pre-6, but only if he has almost no fury, otherwise he will get some crit strikes that can kill you

VS

Twisted Fate

Easy

You are not the joker, but he is. Easy because squishy, if he picks out his blue card to get more mana, jump on him, but never jump on him when he uses yellow card

VS

Udyr

Easy

Annoying in jungle, easy in top lane, that's all for it

VS

Urgot

Medium

His new rework makes him tanky and raging, try to get 6 before him and then all in him

VS

Veigar

Easy

Also one of the mages you rarely see in top. But just don't get stunned, only advice i can give

VS

Vi

Medium

Vi has some serious armor penetration, also she can E your decoy, and it will also damage you, but overall not that hard

VS

Vladimir

Hard

Oh boy, this one is a PAIN. He is INSANE right now his Q heals for a shit load and his E is also OP as fuck. And above that he is ahrd to gank with his pool and can dodge your whole ult dmg with it

VS

Volibear

Medium

ignite is a must if you want to all in him, voli's passive is just so ... but he isn't that easy so be carefull and if you see that he is stronger, keep farming

VS

Wukong

Medium

Monkey vs Monkey, impossible in ranked but possible in normals. Just the best will win :)

VS

Xin Zhao

Medium

Man, i hate this champ, his knockup and heal ... just carefull for him when he plays top

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Yasuo is nothing without his ult, just don't get hit by his Third Q and it will be easy lane

VS

Yorick

Hard

Yorick has a very strong lvl 2, so be carefull, don't forget you can destroy yorickw.png

VS

Zed

Medium

Just use W when he ults, then you should be fine :), he can escape your ult, thats why medium

Why play Wukong ? Back to Top

is a great bruiser, he deals more damage then everyone expects and his ult is crazy in teamfights. works well with also some other ults that are in a large area. For example 61_64.png 32_64.png 3_64.png  143_64.png and 157_64.png. It's one of the best ults to engage

Some people don't know how to play against and don't know his kit very well. is strong when snowballing but weak when he isn't. That's the risk you should take.


can be build in a lot of different ways, but bruiser is ofcourse the best, also blukong is pretty funny to play :D



Wukong in Season 7 Back to Top

is an EXTREME powerhouse in my opinion. In a meta where assasins and ADC's are shining, he is just a god. He can jump on the backline and they can't stop him



With his monkeykingnimbus.png giving AS and as a gap closer and his monkeykingspintowin.png that has the highest AD scaling, is the nightmare of every squishy.


Also acording to the community, has one of the scariest lvl 2 in the game with his monkeykingnimbus.png , AA, monkeykingdoubleattack.png.

Also, is really good at juking, and since adc's don't have much AOE, they can't hit you in stealth
