Monkey will go where he pleases!
I´ve been playing a lot of Wukong lately, and I totally loved him. I like building him as a tough Off Tank, more than a squishy carry. With this build, you´ll be tough from beginning to end.
Note: I don´t like Tri Force on monkey, so I don´t buy it.

Introduction

I´ve realized that in early game, you can deal enough damage to get first blood without needing to put your own life in danger. Even without masteries or runes, your damage is pretty high. In late game, once you get your items you will be dealing a chunk of damage, while being able to survive. What I like the most about Wukong is that he can stop the enemies from focusing him just by using his decoy. This is a huge advantage in teamfights, because if you had a good early game you will be instantly focused, and by using your W you can get out and re-engage whenever you want. The only phase in which you are weaker is mid game, so this build is about getting ASAP your build finished.

Masteries

I like going for 0/21/9.

All the points in defense are mostly for your early game, so you can be bulky enough to survive. This setup, along your passive will make you really tough to fight.
I like getting the gold masterie over the extended buff duration, however picking the other one is probably better

Runes

For runes I use
Armor Penetration Marks
HP per level Seals
Cooldown Reduction Glyphs
Armor Penetration Quints


This is my standard rune page for AD characters, you can change Seals and Glyphs if you want, but Marks and Quints are a must.

Summoner Spells

I take Ignite and Ghost, however I feel that Summoner Spells are personal choices, so feel free to take whatever you want. I still highly reccomend Ghost or Flash as an escape mechanism.
If you are soloing, Teleport is also good.

Skill Order

R > E > Q > W

I like maxing E over Q because it helps you farm a lot easier. This is explained by the damage to 3 targets at once, and the increased AS. You can use this ability on the caster minions to easily kill all 3 of them.

Remember it´s your gap closer, so you´ll probably want to initiate with this. After initiating you can either use your R, or use your Q.
And now about the Decoy. It´s a great escaping mechanism, but try not to use it all the time. You have to be clever, sometimes it´s better to use the S button juke. If the enemy is chasing you, hold the S button. You will stand still, and the enemy will start ignoring you. If that´s isn´t working, try using decoy and running the other way around. If you are heading to your base, and the enemy is chasing you, you can decoy, use the stealth to go the opposite way. When your enemies realize you are behind them, and they switch directions, use your E on the most far away enemy and keep going. The point of Wukong is being tricky. If you use the S juke a lot, the enemy will start to stay and attack you, then it´s your opportunity to use the decoy right away. From that moment on, you should think as the opponent, if they would stay and attack, or leave searching for the real one.
Also don´t forget that your Q works on buildings!

Items

Ok, here it´s the part of the guide that most of you will think it´s not going to work. I can´t blame you, I started doing the build mostly as a joke, but ended up being great. You are going to get 3 gold items. If you don´t like them, you can stop reading right now.
Start with a Doran´s Blade, and pick a lane. Try not to recall until you can buy normal boots and a Philosopher stone. In your next trip to the fountain, get Mercury Treads and a Vampiric Scepter. I prefer Merc Treads on all Off Tanks because of the tenacity and the bonus Magic Resist. Your next items are Heart of Gold and Avarice Blade. Now you should be getting a lot of gold from farming and the items, so as soon as possible transform your Vampiric Scepter into a Wriggle´s Lantern. People say it´s not good on laning champions because it pushes too much, but if you´re focused on last hitting then there should be no problem. Besides, the armor and the damage are perfect for you. Now it´s the part in which the gold items really shine. Your next item is Warmog´s Armor. A bit expensive, but you´ll reach 2600 in no time. Then sell your Heart Of Gold, and buy Warmogs. Do the same thing, farm your Warmogs and when you are around 2000 gold, go back. Sell your Avarice Blade and buy an Atma´s Impaler. Now you should have a lot of damage, a nice chunk of armor and lots of HP. Keep doing the same thing, and when you are around 2000 gold again, sell your Doran´s Blade for a Last Whisper. With the 40% armor penetration, you can easily take down anyone. At this point, the only gold item you got is Philo´s stone, which should be sold for a defensive item. I reccomend either Force of Nature or Banshee´s Veil. If the enemy has heavy AP, get FoN, otherwise Banshee´s is a better choice because of mana, health and extra AD thanks to your Atma´s. You may think that it´s impossible to get all these items, but I´ve managed to get most of them in regular matches. You will be hard to kill and very powerful, but be careful, don´t let them focus you too much. If you are in trouble, use your Decoy to get the attention off you.

Joshua´s time to brag

The End

This is all I could think the monkey´s guide should have, feel free to ask anything.



Lock in your characters and let me explain
The tale of a man who's caused so much pain
Demacia is the place he was raised
If you listen to me you'll be quite amazed
To learn why he's the king of the Rift
The enemy, they're all scared stiff
The heart of a team on mid lane pushes
The reason your foes stay out of the bushes.
The heat of a battle, Garen appears
Down the top lane runs a river of tears
A beacon of light, watch his enemies run
On his back eighteen cloaks of the sun
The lane seems clear but it's hard to say
Is he in the bushes, is he MIA?
It's team fight time, he'll lead the charge
His scarf is long his sword is large.

Garen´s buff made him even better at early game, never played panth

RE: Monkey will go where he pleases!
Just do the standard Irelia tanky dps build that works on nearly any melee

Merc treads, TF, Atmas, Randuin's, Banshee's, Shurelya's

Also the defense tree is shit

Granted he could have more possibility if he decided to drop two points from Harden Skin to put somewhere else. Seeing as it takes two points to block just one more damage, wouldn't the points be better spent somewhere else?

RE: Monkey will go where he pleases!
A masterie tree only works if you put all 21 points on it, masteries are all pretty shitty on their own. Items are more determinant than masteries and runes, the point of these is just to boost your early game. I prefer being bulky from start to end

RE: Monkey will go where he pleases!
Utility tree is the best tree, no contest.
I often go 13/9/8, on Mana users.
