How to play Wukong




Wukong is a highly mobile attack damage jungler. He has a really strong early game in terms of clearing and 1 vs 1 potential vs the enemy jungler, and has strong early game ganks that you can utilize to snowball your lanes. He is also a great champion in the mid and late game. His ultimate Cyclone can crowd control a whole team and you can be a real game-changer.

Wukong Build Breakdown


Youmuu's Ghostblade
Black Cleaver
Guardian Angel
Sterak's Gage
Spirit Visage
Plated Steelcaps - Locket

Wukong uses a mixture of both AD and tank items that allow him to do damage and survive. Youmuu's Ghostblade is a great first item for Wukong. It is a really cheap item that gives a lot of attack damage and gives Wukong bonus movement speed which allows him to move around the map quicker and help out when ganking. Black Cleaver is a perfect example of a good tanky item you can build for Wukong. You can also proc the 5 stacks of the passive really fast with Wukong's attacks and abilities.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Wukong is a fighter so he wants to get in the enemies face and attack constantly whilst using his spells. This allows him to get the 5 stacks pretty fast, which enables him to get more damage on the enemies.

Brutal

This helps out Wukong in the early game to get that extra bit of damage when clearing the jungle and getting early ganks off.

Hunter - Titan

With Wukong, you will be in a lot of fights and ganking a lot which means you will be getting plenty of takedowns. This allows Wukong to get a bit more health with each takedown to make him that little bit extra tanky.

Mastermind

The go-to rune for junglers in Wild Rift! Allows Wukong to deal 10% bonus true damage to epic monsters and adaptive damage to turrets! On top of that, he can earn an extra 120 gold when you takedown objectives!

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for the killing blow. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Helps you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


Wukong has a relatively fast early jungle clear. This means that you can work your way around the jungle really fast and be aggressive when contesting the scuttle crabs in the rivers. It is best to start at Red Brambleback as you don't struggle with mana early and you can stay pretty healthy. In the jungle, you can use Warrior's Trickster (2nd Ability) so the clone takes all the damage when fighting the jungle camp.


This is what the jungle patch would look like:

  1. Red Brambleback
  2. Raptors
  3. Blue Sentinel
  4. Scuttle Crab 1 (In river)
  5. Scuttle Crab 2 (Opposite river)
  6. Gank or continue to farm jungle.

Below is a beginner's guide I did for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp, epic monsters and more!


Late Game


Wukong is a great team fight champion in the late game. Once you have your core items you can ultimate into the enemy team and do a lot of damage whilst also staying alive for a long time for your team to follow up and help you out. You want to stay with your team at all times and try not to get caught out by yourself. As a jungler, your main objective is to keep track of when Dragons, Rift Herald, and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When a team fight happens you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team.

Conclusion


Overall Wukong is a great starter champion if you want to play jungle! He has some easy abilities that you can learn straight away and can have a big impact on the game.
