Ignite is good to trade and finish off champions and most effective against champions with sustain. Wukong has a very good and powerful combo that will do devastating damage, but sometime that isnt enough in the early rounds of the game.. so ignite will just do enough ticks that will ensure you a kill without turret diving for a kill early game.

Heal is a defensive masteries I use if I "want" to turret early, with Heal and ghost, you might get ensure your safety while turret diving, giving you an extra few turret shots in before running away from the turret. Heal also let you gank better and ensure turret diving safety. Get this if you know they will be camping within their turret range all day or you got countered and ignite won't help you too much. (Note: With the new speed boast on Heal, Heal can compensate for Ghost so you can go flash instead.) 

When to get Heal than Ignite ? Against champions like these: 17_icon_64.png-122_icon_64.png-92_icon_64.png-126_icon_64.png and sometimes even against 86_icon_64.png-84_icon_64.png-91_icon_64.png-80_icon_64.png-31_icon_64.png-41_icon_64.png.

When to use Ignite instead of Heal? Against champions like these: 83_icon_64.png-64_icon_64.png-77_icon_64.png-106_icon_64.png-2_icon_64.png-27_icon_64.png and sometimes even against 58_icon_64.png-31_icon_64.png-41_icon_64.png-5_icon_64.png-86_icon_64.png.

In terms of versatility, ignite is a more favorable opinion in most cases, just pick what you prefer.. Heal to be more safe in all aspect of the game, Or Ignite to duel better and secure more kills. (Ignite=faster kills, if you think you need that extra push for kills) (Heal=safer duels, doesnt mean you'll kill them, you might kill them.. but this make sure you wont die)

Ghost vs Flash has always been a debate between those 2. I for one prefer ghost over flash for a few reasons.
1: You have no real escape, ghost has a longer duration then flash; Shorter Cooldown
2: Better to Chase and gun down someone.
3: Easier to initiate with decoy(w)
4: Works and sync with decoy to ensure escape (So lets say you push early by accident, if you are near their turrets I feel that ghost is better than flash if you don't have boots early)
5: Better to juke with since you are faster for a much longer duration then flash can provide. (instagibb with flash)

For Flash the advantages are:
1: Better to avoid fast gank
2: Better against Maokai's and Jarvan's gank (particularly Jarvan's gank since you can flash out of his ult)
3: Works well with your ulti (Flash over wall-e-r combo) or you just cant reach the entire team you can just flash at them. (Works well against Ezreal)
4: Flash over big walls.

Ghost vs Flash are just preferences..

Other good combination of Spells:
Teleport+Flash
Exhaust+Ghost/Flash
Ignite/Exhaust+Heal

Teleport-Flash combo is really good if you are against a shen and you arent going for kill lane but instead have better dragon control or counter gank.. or ganking in general down the bot lane. Flash is to have that insta-initiation after you teleport down.

These spells below are the spells I don't recommend but they can work if you can use them correctly. (Preference thats all it is)

Exhaust can be good against Riven or Master Yi or even Darius to negate their damage output.

Ignite/Exhaust+Heal is really good against someone like Trydamere, since you really only need to win early game and heal is good enough to get you out of most situation.

Runes

Back to Top ▲

AD MARKS/REDS AND AD QUINTS
Quints.pngred.png
This is quiet simple, normal and basic AD runes. Early game is all about how well you can farm, full ad runes helps you last hit better. (Keep in your head that you want 200 farm by 20 mins, around 170 in 20mins if you have to help your team and suffer lack in CS). I find with this new armor pen meta, theirs so much items that can help you shred armor, even if your team builds a 3071_32.png it will stack with your own Black Cleaver.    Wukong also have a build in Armor Pen(Edit: Armor Shred) with/on his Q so Full AD runes just amplify his damage. His Ulti has a 1.2 AD ratio so the more ad you can get the better!

 
Edit: Keep note, you can change these to Armor Penetration Marks against champions like Malphite and Cho that goes Doran's Shield and 1 pot. If you go ARP reds against them, you have a much higher chance of killing him during the early game.

(Note: You can switch out 2 AD Quints for 2 MS Quint.. I can explain how many times I've been saved or caught a kill by that 3% ms increase)


ARMOR SEALS/YELLOWS
yellow.png
Armor is normal as well.. helps you dual with bruisers and AD casters top, block minion AA, etc.. What I really like about Armor Seals is because it works with your passive armor! And also it helps you freeze lane, if you see that theres a bunch of minions running to your tower, armor will help you stop that from happening. Actually.. Dont let that happen! Dont let the tower gun down those minions, just either wait for a bit and AA a couple time here and there till your minions come (Use W decoy if you are taking too much damage). This way you can continue to freeze the lane, with Armor Yellow you can do this more effectively since you need to negate some of their damage to do this. 

Also Armor is good because you are the initiator! Sadly but its true, unless you have someone else to do it, you are most likely the one to have to do it. You have to get in there first, then either protect your AD carry or DESTROY THEM ALL! Kill their AD carry before they kill yours! 


MAG-RESIS GLYPS/BLUES
blue.png

MR Glyps is all preferences, either per-level or flat.. your decision. I prefer per-level since you don't really need it until after laning phase. Maybe switch it out if you are fighting a duo AP comp. But still I would get per-lvl since it will be worth it mid-game where Wukong really shines. Sometimes I would go CDR blues if I want to go ballsdeep and there is no Magic damage by the other team. OR go armor blues against strong/all AD team.

Items

Back to Top ▲
Start With
Core
Situational
(SAME BUT) MORE INFORMATION BELOW

3340_32.png3361_32.png3341_32.png3364_32.png
Always get a yellow trinket first! The ward will work wonders during the early game where you are most vulnerable. Try to upgrade it when you need or when you have the money. And switch to a Red Trinket if your team needs it or against stealth champions. 

2041_32.png+42003_32.png
This my favorite starting items. It will help  you sustain during the early game and the elixir will help you sustain your mana later into the game. Think about it this way, more mana=more abilities=more damage. Or more hp=more damage to put out=more kills. The longer you can stay in lane, the more minions you can get.
 

1029_32.png+52003_32.png or 1029_32.png+32003_32.png+2044_32.png
Armor and 5 pots is good against the tough AD top, its a safe starting items. You can also go Armor 2pots and one ward also. 
((Note:Wait a couple second at fountain/base for one more pot just in case))
Armor helps you freeze lane by blocking/tanking minions damage.


1001_32.png+32003_32.png
Boots and pot. Standards for the old meta, only go this if you are against AP and you want that extra MS.


2037_32.png+22003_32.png+2004_32.png
Really strong starter and is the normal standard lately, the new meta starting items.. but it slows down your build for safety and power in lane (early). Starting long sword is better if you know you'll win because it help increase your build. But for safety and domination in lane by having an elixir and a ward is overpowered atm to let go. The red Elixir is great later int he game when you need that extra AD since wukong's ULT has a 1.0 AD ratio.


1074_32.png1055_32.png1055_32.png
Doran's Blade is too good of an item for early exchanges and last hitting. You might only need one and get a long sword to complete your build faster if you feel you don't need that extra sustain and hp. Going Dorans+Pot early game help you be aggressive early game as well. Doran's Shield against Strong AD top laner. I sometimes even go all 3 if I really want to win early game. 

1053_32.png
If you need early sustain against like Lee or like Riven and you want to just farm under turret.

3269_32.png3264_32.png
Merc or Ninja? You pick depending on the enemy team comp. I usually dont complete my boots unless the map is all opened up and laning phase and finished and you need to get to places faster. Since the buff on champions base movement speed you dont need that extra movement speed from boots like you used too. 

3134_32.png3071_32.png
You almost always need this. Armor Pen is too strong on Wukong, not to mention he can stack the armor shred with his ulti (Note: Black Cleaver does all 5 ticks of its passive with Wukong ulti on EVERYONE under his ulti.) Very beneficial to have because you will shred everyone's armor for your team to nail at them. I only rush BC if I have a heavy AD team, I'm not carrying and need to tank.

3072_32.png
He needs atleast one lifesteal items, unless you are going full tank. (Example of TankKong build: Frozen Mallet/GA/FrozenH/Randiun. Very situational.)

3156_32.png
Another good item. Strong AD stats, MR stats, and passive. Since they will try to focus you off the ADC/APC you will get stronger the lower you get. One of my favourite AD item on Wukong.

3153_32.png
Ruined King is good against high hp champions. Also it provides the cc you are lacking without your Ult. Its also great in combination with Trinity. Honestly I only purchase this if I need a slow from Cutlass (which builds into Botrk) in lane vs someone annoying like jayce or something.

3143_32.png
I don't build this all the time, but I build it enough to consider it a core. Randiun Active+Wukong's Ulti = Facerape

3035_32.png
Amazing, kill everyone.. carries, support, tanks EVERYONE!! Build it when there's a lot of tanks or your carrying and you are surviving teamfights.
Any of these you pick.. Against crazy AD comps.. these should be like your 5th or 6th items.

3044_32.png3078_32.png
Sometimes you might not want to build phage and just rush BC+Last Whisper+Randiun. But if you are really winning your lane and laning phase is still going on (and you really want to bully them..) then Trinity is the way to go. Used to be a Core Build on Wukong but its more situational though. But this item was made for the Monkey King

3022_32.png
You need more CC? FM is really good especially against Singed or someone has to running alot like Nidalee too.

3083_32.png
Get this if theirs a lot of AP or alot of poke damage. Sometimes I prefer this item if I can't lifesteal off of something, I rather just get this. (EDIT: Everyone are getting this now, if you have the spare money and your team are behind. Get this to tank for your team.)

3102_32.png
Probably one of my favourite defensive items. IF they cant stop you from engaging and landing your ULT correctly, they you will win the team fight. Not to mention the HP and MR is a big plus in this tanky meta.

wat we do vs Cho bro?

1 year ago
Change your runes to armor pen reds and quints and start long sword (later into a vamp scepter to have sustain against Cho who has more sustain then you) and 2 pots. Ask for an early gank, you don't really need it, but it secures your safety early game since you didnt start off boots or armor and have no wards either. (Use your jungler, ask them to just scare them and do minimum damage so he can back before or right after you) Post 6 don't try to fight him without a good advantage or you don't have enough armor pen items like BC or LW, just hammer at his team while he sits up top trying to catch up to you. (In laning phase, Q him everytime he tries to farm)

Decoy in when you see their adc is near, you need to know how much damage you can take before you engage though, they will all try to peel you off their adc.

1 time when i was top with darius(i suck with darius) i was vs a wukong, and i thought "gg i won my lane" them i start a fight lvl 3 and he fucked me with an elixir.... 0 ganks from my jungler 5 from the other and that wukong was so feed, 1vs1 he used w when i was using my ult giving him time and i die cause of that
good trick vs darius actually

I dont know what to say lol, this guide was made to beat all champs using wukong. But I can tell you Darius Renekton Garen and Nasus are the 4 I found most difficult vs Wukong. But lately I can beat darius on every encounter since I played the matchup so many time, I say its just a skill matchup.

Nice guide just wanted to add something to that lee pick. If you start cloth armor + 2 pots + ward. you should be set up to level 3-4. Just kite him when he goes in with his q taking out a bit of his hp. Most top lee's will go with elixier+4 pots and ward so the kiting is to see if he uses the pots straight away or if he saves them. If he uses straight away there's not much you can do BUT if he doesnt heal to max hp at level 3-4 you can go in with e+q+w right on top of him after he burns his q. this usually gives me the first kill in a lee lane.After that i just rush warden + wriggle and i never had problems. The times when i lost first kills vs lee i just try and farm to 11, cuz after 11 (mid game to late game) the ultimate from wu can make the game.

Really nice guide tho i never built or plan to build hydra and thornmail on wu. A bf and FH gives way more utility in teamfights plus if you max e first like in the guide you already do decent AOE with e+r

I have a question. Why get a black cleaver? your main job in a teamfight is to use your ultimate, then start doing damage. the ultimate will only proc Black Cleaver once and with a bloodthirster (fully stacked) you'd get an extra 480 damage on your ultimate. You'd also get more damage on your ultimate if you bought a last whisper. Brutalizer is for sure worth it, but I just don't see the upgrade to Black Cleaver being that great when you compare alternatives. I guess it could depend on if you are spending a lot of time dueling people 1v1, in which case, i love the cleaver, but for general purposes i just don't see it being as cost- effective as other items.

Anyways great guide overall.

Wukong's Ulti does 10 AD ticks = Full 5 ticks of BC passive to everyone under Wukongs ulti for 5 seconds. But you're right, sometimes I just rush BT and LW. Updated my guide. I prefer to only rush BC if I'm going double dorans brutilizer into Randiuns, then get BC for your team. Since if you have to go tanky so early, you should just use BC to help your team kill while you do some decent damage and just focus on tanky items.
