Maximizing Wukong's Damage Combo

1 comment
Ancient secret techniques should be secret!

So this blog post is about maximizing Wukong's damage combo (in case someone didn't read the title)

MAIN SPELLS
Q (Crushing Blow): Wukong's next attack deals 30 / 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 (+110% of Attack Damage) physical damage and reduces the enemy's Armor by 30% for 3 seconds.

E (Nimbus Strike): Wukong dashes toward a target enemy and sends out images to attack up to 2 additional enemies near his target, dealing 60 / 105 / 150 / 195 / 240 (+80% of attack damage) physical damage to each enemy struck. Upon hitting his target, Wukong gains 30 / 35 / 40 / 45 / 50% Attack Speed for 3 seconds.

R (Cyclone): Wukong's staff grows outward and he spins it around, dealing 20 / 110 / 200 (+120% of attack damage) physical damage per second and knocking up enemies he encounters. Wukong gains speed over the duration of the spell. Lasts 4 seconds.

EXPLANATION
You'll see that I've bolded reduces armor from Q and physical damage from E and R. Why's this? Well the reason is that by using Q before using E and R, you actually gain more damage from hitting with E and R. Naturally, it's harder to pull off than using your Nimbus Strike to close the gap before using Q, so most people would rather use the combo the other way around for poking.

However, to maximize your damage, you should do:
Autoattack -> Q (resets auto animation) -> Nimbus Strike -> Autoattack (More if you have Mallet)-> Cyclone
METHOD
The easiest way to get this combo off during the laning phase is to either walk through the bushes or use your W to sneak up on them to attack. The second option is mana intensive, and after using it once or twice, you should start using the hold button (S) to fool them into thinking you're using the combo.

Hope this helped!

  1. I was just thinking about this the other day! I make it a point to use this alternate combo when the opportunities arise. Such as when someone face checks into your bush, or when engaged by a melee character.

    Allowing your Nimbus Strike to profit off your armor shred MASSIVELY increases burst. You also add an extra post-armor shred autoattack into the combo.

    Another thing is that since you're not doing an autoattack and THEN a Crushing Blow before Cyclone, it is easier to catch runners could possibly be out of your reach by the time you add those two hits before activating your ult.

    It is an awesome idea, and every serious WuKong player should keep it in mind while they're playing!
