Wukong Strengths & Weaknesses

His Warrior TricksterW is a great tool that can allow him to escape ganks and skirmishes with the enemy during the laning phase.

Wukong’s Ultimate CycloneR is a very good tool. It can be used to help his team win team fights, and for him to get kills during the laning phase.

Wukong excels at extended trades with his Nimbus StrikeE and Crushing BlowQ. He is a very strong duelist in the laning phase.


If Wukong falls behind, it will be really hard for him to get back into the game. Wukong relies on being a nuisance and getting an early lead to take over the map.

His Warrior TricksterW is his only real disengage tool. Once that is down, or if he misuses it, his enemies can easily kill him in lane.

If Wukong falls behind, he can build tank, but he will deal little to no damage in a team fight. Keep this in mind, but be prepared to adapt.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Wukong is Average

This champion is an early game bully. Play aggressive throughout the laning phase to get kills. If you can get a kill or two, you can snowball your lead pretty quickly.

Whenever your Ultimate CycloneR is up, you can look for aggressive plays to try and kill the enemy. Your Ultimate CycloneR is a great trading tool which makes you much stronger.

Keep the minion wave even or slightly closer to your side of the map early on. This will allow you to run the enemy down while protecting yourself from ganks. If you keep pushing when you’re not ahead, you will be unable to run the enemy down and you’ll be an easy target for the enemy Jungler.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Wukong is Average

Split push during the mid-game and try to secure side objectives. Avoid grouping if possible.

Use your strong duelling potential in the mid-game to fight and duel anyone with your CycloneR who tries to stop you from split pushing.

Although you’re a really strong split pusher in the mid-game, be prepared to group with your team and fight 5v5. You should usually start grouping when there are no nearby objectives to take.

Late game
25+ min
Wukong is Average

After going in with your Ultimate CycloneR, be prepared to fall back and peel for your allies in late game team fights.

To make getting on the enemy backline easier, group with your team but stay off to the side. If you flank from an unwarded bush, the enemy will find it harder to react to your all-in. Avoid splitting or being away from your team in the late game as the enemy will force a fight while you’re gone.

Play around your Ultimate CycloneR in the later parts of the game. Avoid fighting unless your Ultimate CycloneR is up. Fighting without it will make the late game team fights much harder. Delay fights and be prepared to disengage if it’s still on cooldown.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

His early game is pretty decent as he can just go for consistent all-in trades and get back to safety due to his Warrior TricksterW. He won't be taking a lot of damage either with proper usage of that ability.

The first item component is a decent spike as it bolsters his survivability and damage. It will help him take over the lane easily.

Level six is a massive spike as he can now impact team fights as a whole. He can also look for flanks and dive the enemy backline.

Mid game15 - 25 min

Another point in his Ultimate CycloneR will increase his overall damage and allow him to skirmish way more efficiently. Team fights will be a breeze for him.

The first ability will be maxed out at level 9. This will help him dish out a lot of damage to enemies he manages to get his hands upon.

During this phase of the game, multiple items will allow him to dish out a lot of damage while surviving fights with ease.

Late game25+ min

The final point in his Ultimate CycloneR will allow him to deal tremendous amounts of damage to the enemies. He should try to look for flanks during team fights to maximize his Ultimate CycloneR usage.

He will have many items now, which will make him really tanky and will allow him to deal lots and lots of damage in a short amount of time. The enemy team will have a hard time dealing with him.

Wukong is pretty substantial during this phase of the game. Still, he will have a hard time killing them due to them purchasing defensive items. You will want to group up with your team as frequently as you can.
