Wukong Build



Table of Contents

  • Abilities

    Stone Skin
    Its an OK passive, nothing too great and it gives OK stats in a team fight


    Crushing Blow
    Best if used right after an Auto-Attack to get two attack in 1 attack time frame. It also can be used to nuke towers, and proc sheen. It reduces a targets armor by 30%


    Decoy
    great for escaping, checking bushes or making the enemies waste their CD's


    Nimbus Strike
    good range closer, and deals the best damage out of all of his abilities, and makes farming easier


    Cyclone
    Good for teamfights, try to knock everyone up. Level 1 does horrible damage (20 dps). levels 2 and 3 are much better(110 dps and 200 dps)

    *****You can use flash or exhaust while this is active*****


  • Introduction

    This is my first guide on leaguecraft. I am used to mobafire, but I like leagcraft's tools so i figured i would post here instead.

    I am a level 30 summoner with 400+ wins. I am not trying to brag, just trying to ensure you that I am not a level 10 trying to make a guide

  • Masteries + Runes

    Masteries are ENTIRELY up to you. Personally, I like going 1/16/13 to get extra health, exhaust mastery and flash mastery. I have tried 21/9/0 and 9/21/0. I didn't like them as much. Also, please dont put points in utility to get Greed 400 gold in a game is just not worth it.

    Runes

    Greater Mark of Desolation
    Greater Seal of Defense
    Greater Glyph of Shielding
    Greater Quintessence of Fortitude

  • Summoner Abilities

    Flash is a must on wukong, you can use it to get away after Decoy, or you can use it to get in range for a Nimbus Strike

    I also take Exhaust

  • Skilling Order

    ->x2->->->

    Max Nimbus Strike first, it has the best damage.
    Max Crushing Blow next,
    Level up Cyclone whenever possible,
    Max Decoy Last

    Two points in Crushing Blow keeps you at the same cooldown as Nimbus Strike

  • Farming

    Farming is rather simple, last hit. It is easiest to use Nimbus Strike and follow up with a Crushing Blow if you didnt it didnt last hit. After getting Sheen last hitting becomes MUCH easier.

  • Tanky DPS Item Build

    Start with Regrowth Pendant and Health Potion

    First trip back, get Philosopher's Stone and Boots of Speed, also get a [item=Heart of Gold] if possible. And buy Health Potion x3 if you can.

    If you didnt get [item=Heart of Gold] on the first trip back, get it now. This is the beginning core of the build, you need the 5g/10 items because it is an expensive build.

    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold] Health Potion

    Now, rush Sheen, to increase your burst damage, followed by a Giant's Belt

    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold][

    Combine your Giant's Belt into a Warmog's Armor
    Then get a Phage

    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold][

    Next get Mercury's Treads and then get Trinity Force. It is an amazing item for Wukong and adds alot of damage for him.
    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold]

    Now, You pick the order between these items,
    , and [item_icon=Force of Nature] or

    Personally I would get Atma's Impaler first, because it is the cheapest, and benefits from Warmog's Armor.
    Then I would get Infinity Edge.

    If the enemy team has alot of AP and causing trouble for me and my team I would get some magic resist
    Please check how much magic resist you have already before going and buying magic resist items, Greater Glyph of Shielding, Mercury's Treads and Stone Skin is usually enough magic resist for me
    If they have little CC , i will get [item=Force of Nature]
    Otherwise I would get a Banshee's Veil, and the health synergizes with Atma's Impaler

    If you need more damage, you can skip the magic resist and get a The Bloodthirster or The Black Cleaver

  • DPS item build with some survivability

    Start with Regrowth Pendant and Health Potion

    First trip back, get Philosopher's Stone and Boots of Speed, also get a [item=Heart of Gold] if possible. And buy Health Potion x3 if you can.

    If you didnt get [item=Heart of Gold] on the first trip back, get it now. This is the beginning core of the build, you need the 5g/10 items because it is an expensive build.

    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold]

    Now, rush Sheen, to increase your burst damage, followed by a Mercury's Treads

    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold]

    Then get a Phage

    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold]

    Next get if you need more damage get Trinity Force. It is an amazing item for Wukong and adds alot of damage for him.

    Otherwise, get a Giant's Belt.

    If you can get both, get both.
    Current Inventory:
    [item_icon=Heart of Gold]

    Combine your Giant's Belt into a Sunfire Cape. This will give you a slight damage boost(35 dps) with some more survivability.

    Now, pick up an Infinity Edge.

    If you need more survivability against casters, get a Banshee's Veil. Otherwise, skip this step.

    The last item i would get would be one of the following:
    The Bloodthirster: if personally, i want a damage boost and want some lifesteal
    The Black Cleaver: if there is an AD carry on my team, that doesn't have this yet.
    Atma's Impaler: if you need more armor and crit, it gives about the same AD(not including BT stacks).

    Ending Inventory (even though the game should never last this long):
    .

  • Ganking or Team fighting

    Since this is a tanky DPS build, you can initiate and I would not hesitate to do so. Initiate with Nimbus Strike and follow with a Decoy. Most enemies will blow all CD's on your clone. Next use either Crushing Blow or if the enemies are running away or grouped up Cyclone. Also, you can use Flash to get in closer to land a Nimbus Strike or Cyclone.

    I find it beneficial to not use my skills in quick succession due to the damage from Trinity Force.

  • Killing Towers

    Killing towers with Wukong is not just Auto-Attack. If there are minions around, Nimbus Strike in. It will increase your Attack Speed and proc Trinity Force. Then after 2-3 seconds use Crushing Blow right after an Auto-Attack to proc another Trinity Force

  • Conclusion

    This concludes my guide on Wu Kong, and personally I love this champion. He is very fun to play and has really cool abilities.

    Please let me know what you think! Also, if I need to explain more, just let me know.
