The Monkey King Bar is an item purchasable at the Main Shop, under Weapons. However, it can only be completed with items from the Secret Shop.


Grants each attack a 80% chance to pierce through evasion and deal 70 bonus magical damage.
Proc Chance: 80%
Damage: 70
Partially usable by illusions. Can proc for illusions, allowing them to bypass evasion, but does not apply the bonus damage.


  • The proc chances of Pierce from multiple Monkey King Bars do not stack.
    • However, Monkey King Bar's pierce works completely independent from Javelin's pierce, fully stacking with it.
  • The bonus damage is dealt in one instance together with the attack damage, and counts as attack damage as well.
    • However, it is not considered by lifesteal, crit or cleave.
    • It is also not affected by percentage-based attack damage bonuses or reductions, but can be reduced with flat reductions.
  • Does not work against buildings, but works against wards and allied units.
  • Attacks which proc Pierce cannot miss.

Recommended Heroes[]


  • Monkey King Bar's Pierce works against every form of miss chance, not only evasion. This means it is also a viable pickup when the enemy has sources of blind.


  • The Monkey King, Sun Wukong, is the subject of the Chinese folk novel Journey to the West. His weapon, Ruyi Jingu Bang (如意金箍棒), is a magical iron rod with ends banded with gold. Although it weighs several tons, the Monkey King can change its size at will so he may shrink it and tuck it behind his ear, or grow exponentially and duplicate into an infinite number of individual rods.
