Counter Tips to Beat
The Monkey King
Wukong is played top or in the jungle.
As you walk through the jungle towards your blue buff, you notice that there’s a key teamfight on the other side of the map. You start your teleport, noting who’s low on health and what you might have to protect yourself from.Suddenly, you hear a low “WOOHAA” and a monkey comes out of nowhere, spinning like a Beyblade. You fly into the sky, only to land straight in the path of his staff. In less than a second, you’re dead. 5 seconds later, your toplaner is dead.
Wukong is a fighter with powerful utility and high base damage. He’s good in wombo combo compositions and is good in early skirmishes.
