Key Strategy

Key strategic elements to consider when playing Monkey King

  • Turning into courier form with Mischief allows you to sneak up to opponents or snipe their couriers in the base. The opponents can`t see you on minimap.
  • Well timed Mischief allows you to dodge the damage coming from attacks and spells but not the debuffs coming with that spell or attack.
  • Consider skilling Boundless Strike on level 1 to secure range creep lasthit if you don`t see yourself getting Jingu Mastery stacks up.
  • Acquiring Jingu stacks or a threat of getting them is the way Monkey King wins the lane. Orb of Venom and early boots help with that.
  • If the lane is rough consider putting more points in Tree Dance for creep clearing and work on solving mana issues to be able to spam it.
  • Many spells and items can cut trees you are standing on, including those coming from your allies. Be careful about that.
  • Pillar and Tinker wards as well as spells that provide flying vision when used, can spot you standing on the trees.
  • You should skip skilling Wukong Command on level 6 in most of the games as it is hard to keep opponents inside of it early on.
  • Channeling Wukong command from a tree will make you drop down from it without being stunned. You can jump back on the tree and the ulty will keep going.
  • To get a good Wukong Command ideally channel it outside of opponents` vision and follow up with Boundless Strike.
  • Items that modify attacks or have proc chance - except for Basher - will work on Monkey King soldiers.
