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 can also be played in the top lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! The build focuses a lot on being a front line tank. You can stack Grasp of the Undying really easily and build defensive items so you can survive a long time during teamfights.

Wukong Build Breakdown

Trinity Force
Sterak's Gage

Gluttonous Greaves - Gargoyle

Wukong uses a mixture of both AD and tank items that allow him to do damage and survive. Trinity Force is a great item for Wukong. This item gives him both damage and tank stats, and the passive effect Spellblade works with Wukong, especially his first ability Golden Staff. Sterak's Gage is an excellent example of a tank item that still gives Wukong bonus Attack Damage. Sterak's gives Wukong a lot of health, and the passive gives him a shield when he gets low on health, keeping him alive longer. This is especially important when you want to use your Cataclysm on the enemy team and get stuck with everyone attacking you.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Wukong is a fighter, so he wants to get in the enemy's face and attack constantly whilst using his spells. This allows him to get the six stacks pretty fast, which means he can deal more damage and get a lot of physical vamp when fully stacked.

Sudden Impact

When using Wukong's Nimbus Strike he will gain Armor Penetration to deal more damage.

Empowered Attack

Empowered Attack works well with junglers since it works when clearing jungle camps and can help Wukong deal extra damage.

Eyeball Collector

Eyeball Collector is great since it gives Wukong more Attack Damage every time he gets a takedown. Zombie Ward can also be good if you often roam and look to kill wards.

Overgrowth

Overgrowth allows Wukong to gain permanent health throughout the game when nearby minions or monsters are killed. So the more Wukong farms in the jungle, the more Maximum Health he will get.

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 so the clone takes all the damage when fighting the jungle camp.


This is what the jungle patch would look like:

  1. Krugs
  2. Red Brambleback
  3. Raptors
  4. Look for Gank
  5. Scuttle Crab
  6. 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.
