Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Take flash 100% of the time. It allows you to be aggressive, escape, and set up 4.png monkeykingnimbus.png monkeykingspintowin.png plays in fights.
12.pngTp is a solid spell top lane. It is always okay to take this. It is good for getting back into lane, setting up Tp ganks bot lane to get them ahead, and keeping map pressure.
14.pngThis is good against squishy champs to snowball and it gives extra kill potential. Don't take into very hard matchups because you wont be killing them anyway. 
11.pngSmite is for Jungling. duh

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Keystones(OUTDATED SEASON 7):

Thunderlord's Decree: This fits Wukong's play style the best. It gives you burst and procs often in trades because of your monkeykingnimbus.png AAmonkeykingdoubleattack.png  combos.

Fervor: This mastery is ok at best, but it isn't as useful when you ult late game, which is your main source of damage. You don't get to really get off your stacks. Good for long auto attack trades. Not optimal for Wukong.

Stormraider's?: This might be good for sticking to the enemy if you don't need extra damage on your team and need hard engage.

Other Masteries:


Double Edge Sword: Good on Wukong, deal more damage, take a bit more. WURF. You can take feast for better sustain if you want. 

Bounty Hunter: You will get more out of this mastery than Oppressor because you will get more kills generally to be more useful than Oppressor. It fits well into your kit better.

Assassin: This is more useful throughout the game when you don't need to rely on you potions anymore. Secret stash is also very solid for better sustain in lane.

Precision: This gives you armor penetration, which means more damage. Armor pen is amazing on Wu.

monkeykingspintowin.png Prioritize maxing ult first. It makes you the big $$$.
monkeykingnimbus.pngMax second because if you don't, it does no damage. When you do, your combos do more than if u max q second. It also gives attack speed after you cast it. 
monkeykingdoubleattack.pngMax 3rd. Keep in mind that this is an auto attack reset so you can use it right after you finish an auto. It gives you armor pen for a few seconds after you hit the target.
monkeykingdecoy.pngMax last. Sometimes you might want to put a point into this level 2 against tough matchups. 


NOTE!!! ALWAYS TAKE W LEVEL 2 IF YOU'RE JUNGLING.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Always
    Personally take this 99% of the time. Gives sustain, damage over time in trades when you pop it, and mana which is awesome.
    Jungle Start

Core Items

    1st and 2nd item. (unless need situational)
    Swifties: gotta go fast (snowballing)| Mercs: AP and CC| Tabis: AD/auto attack reliant
    Assassin Full Build Example
    Bruiser Example
    Jungle
    situational if u really need vs an ap laner.

Situational Items

    Situational as 1st item vs tank laners or hard matchups that you need the health stats. GET when you need arm pen
    Armor options
    Magic resist
    Steraks is good for survivability vs burst comps. GA is really good for all in dives and armor.
    These both give good AD and stats later into your build.
    If you really need to get rid of cc
    Sweeper when you're jungling, also good for flanks.
    If you REALLY need to shred tanks/carries with armor
    Offers tanky stats and sustain early. You can buy 1 or 2 on your first back depending on the situation. Never start this item.
    Best elixir on Wu, take before important fights
3142.png Core on assassin Wukong. Some people rush dirk into this item for extra arm pen. Gives good AD and move speed active.
3074.png  E AA Q Hydra is nice combo. not as core as was in previous seasons. situational now if u want waveclear/ extra lifesteal or burst to ur combo. better on bruiser wu than assassin.
3071.png This item gives is good because the arm pen stack passive applies with wu ult. It also gives him a bit of health and move speed in fights.
3156.pngArm pen, Magic resist, nice passive for survivability against fed AP
3053.pngHelps stay alive too 
3026.pngGreat item because it offers ad and armor, and can usually fit into any build. This item plays a factor in mentality too. Enemy team wont know if they want to blow CDs on you. Meanwhile, you can be more confident with your ults.
3812.pngGives nice heals on ult and abilities. Works really well if you can get off good ults.
3147.pngEssential on Assassin Wu. lethality, out of combat movement speed, clearing wards, and extra burst. amazing
3742.pngPreferred armor item because it gives you speed for engaging and more health than armor because it synergies with Wukong's monkeykingpassive.png passive. Get Randuin's if they have  fed auto attack reliant champs.

3065.pngSynergizes with life steal. Get this if you don't need Banshee passive. CDR, lots of health, MR
3814.pnggood for engaging so u dont get cc as soon as u appear out of stealth. combo this with other lethality items for a lot of burst.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Dodge his skill shots. and don't underestimate his ult.

VS

Darius

Hard

Don't get hit by his Q. Be careful of his level 1 cheese where he hides near your bush. Give up cs and soak xp in lane. Call for Jungler, but don't expect ganks.  Position out of his grab. Just don;t feed and you can be more useful mid-late game.

VS

Fiora

Medium

You can be agro early, but know your limits. Learn her parry patterns.

VS

Garen

Medium

This matchup is medium-hard depending on you and the player. Be safe, try to clone his Q and Ult. (possible with good timing). Play safe early and make smart trades.

VS

Gnar

Easy

Calculate your aggression early without getting poked too much after. You can get an early lead and snowball. Make sure not to fight when he is close to MEGA GNAR. However, if you fall behind you will have a lot of trouble.

VS

Illaoi

Medium

You can clone block her soul grab. You can win level 1 with corruption potion if you dodge her tentacles. BIG TIP: simply walk out of her ultimate. Sometimes if you in ult and she ults, she will out damage and heal enough to kill you. Don't take the risk unless its 100% sure kill. You can always re-engage after her ult is done.

VS

Irelia

Medium

You can beat her pre 6. Learn her Stun patterns and use clone wisely. 

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Just farm. You will usually lose trades because when you disengage he can still see you while invis with Q and E. Try to clone block his Q. This is a medium-hard matchup.

VS

Malphite

Medium

If you cant kill him before he gets tanky it is just going to be a farm lane. Most likely you will lose fights once he does, but there is no need to fight him anyway. I recommend getting black cleaver first so you have kill potential.

VS

Maokai

Medium

Just like a lot of tanks vs Wukong, beat them early before they get tanky.

VS

Nautilus

Easy

This matchup is so easy if you play it right. E in level 1,2,3 followed up with a bunch of auto attacks. Auto him while your cloned too so he tanks clone damage if he tries to trade back. Remember to Q then E when you can for the armor shred. He is squishy early on and you can even win if you are behind. Clone block his grab and don't be reckless.

VS

Olaf

Hard

Try to dodge his axes and not fight auto battles when he is low health. Farm up.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Give up cs early and only try to get what you can. If you know you will get punished don't hit the cs. Just try to soak the xp from minions. Don't feed.

VS

Poppy

Medium

Try to gain an advantage before she becomes tanky. You really cant kill her after she does. Get Black Cleaver.

VS

Riven

Medium

Play safe early. You can only win if she's misplays or you outplay her. Play around her cool downs to trade. 

VS

Trundle

Hard

Don't have long trades against this champ. If you somehow managed to get ahead you will still lose if you have long fights. Keep trades short. E AA Q.

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Don't fight him early. You beat him post 6 easily if you didn't die beforehand.

Why Pick Wukong? Back to Top

Well he is a really fun, simple champion with a great impact in team fights. He can be a stealthy assassin or even a heavy engage for your team. He can be played in many roles: top, jg, and is really underestimated in the mid lane! You can play him support if you wanted to. Overall, he is a hard solo carry champion who can go ham.

Combos Back to Top

Laning

Standard trading combo: monkeykingnimbus.png AAmonkeykingdoubleattack.png  (this activates Thunderlord's) or monkeykingnimbus.png AAmonkeykingdoubleattack.png3074.png (hydra active.)
Enemy is in melee range: AAmonkeykingdoubleattack.pngmonkeykingnimbus.png
Remember to use monkeykingdecoy.png to disengage when needed. You don't always monkeykingdecoy.png after every trade because you burn mana. Judge wisely.


Ulting

When you ult a target, usually you want to skip the auto attack because it gives them time to react to your ult. Only fit in the AA and hydra if you know the enemy wants to stick around to fight. (but thats if they think if they can kill you, so you have to know your limits.

monkeykingnimbus.pngmonkeykingdoubleattack.pngmonkeykingspintowin.png when you know you can finish them off. You can even use just to get them out of lane to gain an advantage.

If the enemy is fighting a long fight and is close to you, but you know you can kill him use Q E R to apply the pen.
 

Stealth (team fights, gank as jungle wk)

monkeykingdecoy.png out of vision, then monkeykingnimbus.pngmonkeykingdoubleattack.pngmonkeykingspintowin.png .

Team Fighting Back to Top

Lets start off with the most common way: getting off the big game winning ultimates. 


To do this, you can either Flank (preferably where they have no vision) and come in from the fog of war or the side. monkeykingdecoy.png in the fog of war, then walk up monkeykingnimbus.png onto where the champions are grouped, monkeykingdoubleattack.png a specific target for penetration,monkeykingspintowin.png multiple people so you can allow your team to follow up and kill them all.

Another method is the turn around. This is when your team is running away and the enemy team is chasing toward you. monkeykingdecoy.png and walk back monkeykingnimbus.pngmonkeykingdoubleattack.pngmonkeykingspintowin.png. Before you do this, make sure you ping your team to engage before you even clone/ type it in chat to prevent the risk of no one following up.

When you're behind

Use your ult to peel for your carries and try to keep them alive while applying knockup to the enemies. If you are building full damage, use your best judgement if you can dive back line or not.

Assassination

Use the standard ult combo on the champ you want to assassinate while cloning beforehand, thus the assassination.


Tips and Tricks Back to Top

monkeykingnimbus.png 
-You can E minions to take turrets/objectives faster because you gain attack speed when cast
-You can E to targets in range that are over walls. useful for killing champs, escaping (ward jungle camp then monkeykingnimbus.png)
-E hits 3 targets
monkeykingdoubleattack.png
-Always Q before you ult if you can because it applies armor pen, causing more damage
-Q is an auto reset. Use it right after an auto attack hits
monkeykingdecoy.png
-W CAN TANK ANY SINGE TARGET PROJECTILE  (ex: cait ult, lee sin q, grabs, morg bind, etc.)
-Pressing your "S" key on your keyboard makes your champion stop. You can fake people out, thinking it's your clone. 
(warning: animation is different, experienced players can tell.)
-w in fog of war to pull of stealth engage team fights/ganks!
-w facing one way and walking the other is good escape tool unless they have a pink/sweeper
-timing your W while the enemy turret is shooting the finishing blow on your  last minion, you can use clone to block 1 or 2 turret shots.
monkeykingspintowin.png
-You can cast summoner spells while ulting. This is most usefully applied when you ult then flash to another target out of range, or gap closing someone else's flash to stick to them.
-pressing ult again cancels your spin. use this if you can burst them down in situations needed with regular combo or finish them off if you couldn't reach.

About Me Back to Top

I started playing league in  mid season 5 because my friends did and pretty much played Wukong the whole time. I hit silver 1 (gold in preseason :/) in season 5 and hit Plat 3 in Season 6. I stopped one tricking him but I still have 500k in him because of how much I played him XD.
