- Level 1: E

- Level 3: W

- Max Order: Q -> W -> E

- Take a point in your R (ultimate) whenever possible (levels 6, 11, and 16).

General Playstyle:

Early Game:

Focus on farming and watch out for ganks. Use your Q and E for poke and trades.

Mid Game:

Look for skirmishes and teamfights. With your core items, you'll be a significant threat.

Late Game:

Stick with your team. Engage with E and R, aiming to knock up as many enemies as possible.


Focus on last-hitting minions. Use E for wave clear when necessary.


Engage with E, followed by R to knock up multiple enemies. Use W strategically to dodge key abilities or to deceive opponents.

Dragon and Baron Objective:

Use W to scout or to create a diversion. Engage with E and R to disrupt the enemy team.


Bad Matchups (Extreme Threats): Rumble

Good Synergies (Ideal): Yasuo

Additional Advice:

- Wukong is item-dependent. Ensure you're farming well to get your core items as soon as possible.

- While Wukong has high burst and is relatively easy to learn, he lacks built-in sustain. Be wary of champions that can poke you down.

- Wukong's ultimate, Cyclone, is a game-changer in teamfights. Ensure you're positioning well to maximize its impact.

From monkeying around to mastering the mid, we've journeyed through the jungle of jukes and jumps. Remember, every time you dominate the lane, a banana gets its peel. Thanks for swinging by the Wukong Mid Guide 13.16!
