This is a very good build!
It worked in both Assault and Conquest!
Thank you friend!

Glad shield feels better first than second imo. I was losing the trades when I went against a good achillies (usually wukong's counter because of execute). I still go soul eater second because the sustain is cracked and you can just ignore the solo laner, and proxy/invade.

Also, I think its better to get genji before shifters for the mp5/mid fights and imo shifter sorta falls off late game when you could be going cad/mantle/void.

Getting your Soul Eater stacked ASAP is far more important IMO. Also the reason that Wukong can get away with it first item is because of how safe he is, if you're playing into someone like Achilles they are obviously gonna whoop your *** regardless unless the player is bad.

I really like Shifter's Shield on Wukong because of the synergy with his passive, the scaling is great for his abilities and always has value of both stances of the shield with Soul Eater healing him back up to use the high power. If it's not for you, you could swap it for something like Brawler's Beat Stick, Arondight, Spectral Armor, Mantle of Discord for sure but more bruiser items on Wukong is better IMO.

Going full tank for the sake of it is kind of a waste of Wukongs true value, being able to dive with damage safely and not die.

Yeah, im a bit wrong with the shifters. Since you can lifesteal off proxing, and it puts you at the 60 power passive where you can oneshot some junglers. I'm a bit fan of mantle for late game though. Just running down the adc with an extra stun feels very useful for frontlining.

This build is bad. The best build is: start with chalice, warriors blessing, multipotions and blink. Then full warrior tabi and then soul eater,sledge,void shield, arondight, heartseeker(genji´s guard optional)and brawlers if they have healers or lifesteal. The second relic beads or shell if they have 2 adcs or bakasura,merc, etc. This is the best build if u want to carry with wukong trust me.

Okay, I'm sorry you feel my "build is bad" yet I build the same first 4 full items as you with also Warrior's Blessing, Genji's Guard, Heartseeker and Brawler's Beat Stick as you mentioned.

The only real differences being:

Mage's Blessing, which is a fine option for SWK's wave clear, as it helps his damage in the mid game on squishies and he doesn't really need all the protections from Warrior's because of his lane safety.

Genji's Guard instead of Oni Hunter's Garb. Not a huge difference either way, one makes you tankier and one spams abilities more, same as the Mage's blessing issue I have it listed as an alternative in my notes for the main build.

Beads I have as an option as you can see at the bottom which I do pick up myself fairly often so that is still the same as your build.

The only true difference to your build I have is that I don't have Arondight listed anywhere. I understand the use of the passive can be quite synergistic for him, but in a Solo role I prefer more tankiness like a Mantle of Discord to ensure safety while trying to ult. Aron could easily take MoD's place if you wanted to build like that.

Tl;dr you basically called your own build bad.

so you say but your build doesn't say you do this, it's just full defence.
sure i can survive pretty well but mid to late game i can't do enough damage I ended up having to switch half the items out in order to kill someone so i didn't getting bullied.

Bruh calm dude,I`m just saying building a lot of defence like other warriors is not that good on swk because the passive gives you the protections u need to be quite tanky. Also if u build soul eater its better if u have a lot of power for more healing with each ability but it`s just my opinion. You can`t carry ur team with defense items( well supports maybe because they have a lot of cc, but with swk u only have ur 3 and if u miss it ur done xd)

Wouldnt build Arondight every game but it's a good item.

Also Glad Shield has ok base stats that it could also be considered.
