How it works

  1. You play as burst oriented Mage.
  2. You build AP items.
  3. You rush Hextech Rocketbelt.

How to play

  1. Playing AP Wukong build, your default rush is Hextech Rocketbelt.
  2. Adapt to an enemy team. Are they full of tanks, and they rush tons of Magic Resist? You rush Void Staff as #2 or #3 item to counter MR stacking. Their team has champs with lots of healing? Rush Oblivion Orb as #2 item (upgrade to Morellonomicon as 4th or 5th item).
  3. Somebody is going after you each fight? Always getting ulted by enemy assassins? Rush Zhonya's Hourglass.
  4. This AP Wukong build relies on going in (preferably from bush, because W is good for escape), doing burst damage with E, auto, Q, auto and running away with W.
  5. With the combo mentioned above, you will deal plenty of damage from abilities + auto attacks + items.
  6. With this build, your R won't be super strong, so use it for CC, disrupting fights or running away.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Decoy and Nimbus Strike work well together to quickly strike your enemy and get out before they can retaliate.
  2. Try using Decoy near brush to make an enemy overreact to your movement.
