Wukong Abilities

Stone Skin (Passive): Wukong’s armor and magic resistance are increased for each nearby enemy champion.

Crushing Blow: Wukong swings his mighty staff with incredible speed, crushing his opponent. This attack deals additional physical damage and reduces the enemy’s Armor for a short duration.

Decoy: Wukong utilizes his cleverness to trick his foes. He becomes stealthed for 1.5 seconds and leaves an uncontrollable decoy behind that will deal Magic Damage to enemies near it after 1.5 seconds.

Nimbus Strike: Wukong dashes on a cloud toward a target enemy and sends out images to attack up to 2 additional enemies near his target, dealing physical damage to each enemy struck.

Cyclone (Ultimate): Wukong’s staff grows outward and he spins it around, dealing damage and knocking up enemies. Wukong gains movement speed over the duration of the spell.

Wukong Tips and Tricks

Using Decoy:

Stopping by hitting "S" looks just like using decoy. Thus, you can hit S making your enemies think you've cast decoy and then decoy and juke them the other way. Or just watch them chase you elsewhere lol.

Double-Hitting with Q: Hit Q immediately after an auto-attack to get two strikes in lightning fast.

Ghost before Cyclone - Ghosting before cyclone gives you massive speed allowing you to chase and ensure you land your entire ultimate.

      he is op if well played, can carry a whole team if semi tank build

    • Tolovaj Publishing House 5 years ago from Ljubljana

      Yes, it is:)

      He's my main. I apologize to everyone I play against, because he is stupid broken. My 3 most recent games with him are 9/0, 17/2, 12/0. I love him, he's ridiculously fun. Insane pokey burst but incredible dueling capabilities as well. Riot created a champion meant to excel in team fights and accidentally made him one of the best brawlers in the game. Cyclone is the best AD scale right now at 4.8 over the duration, and smart use of decoy leads to easy multikills or escapes. Wukong is a tanky DPS/stealth assassin who is very difficult to counter at low to mid-level ELO.

    No! Wukong is Balanced or UP.
