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


Black Cleaver
Sterak's Gage
Guardian Angel
Randuin's Omen
Spirit Visage
Plated Steelcaps - Gargoyle

Wukong uses a mixture of both AD and tank items that allow him to do damage and survive. 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. Ontop of Black Cleaver you can build Sterak's Gage and Guardian Angel so you can stay alive longer during teamfights.


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.

Pathfinder

As a jungler you will be roaming around the map a lot, taking objectives and ganking lanes. Pathfinder gives you extra movement speed in brushes, jungle and river so you can move around the map a lot quicker to help your team.

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.
