Intro

I'm getting tired of saying this, but I'll keep saying it because brutal honesty goes far: I'm bad at league, I don't play ranked, and I mostly main jungle champs.

Ekko and I go way back-he was one of the very first champs I mained when I began playing-and I had no clue what I was doing with him since I was new. So I want to clear up the confusion that someone who is new to playing Ekko or who is new to jungling might experience.

Z-Drive Resonance: Explanation of Ekko's Abilities



Z-Drive Resonance
is one of Ekko's passive abilities, and if used correctly, can be used to do insane amounts of damage in late game. Each third attack on a target will deal bonus magic damage, and if the target is an enemy champ, you gain a burst of extra move speed.

Runes (Loadout)



Dark Harvest
with
Magical Footwear
and
Cosmic Insight
are the general runes for Ekko jungle, but, the
First Strike
rune page is getting more and more popular, and for good reason. It allows you to gain more gold so you can build your items faster.
First Strike
can be used with either
Domination
or
Sorcery
as your secondary runetree. For ADC and mid,
Dark Harvest
with
Sorcery
generally works well, but some people use the FS Alt page instead.

  • First Strike
  • First Strike Alt
  • Mid/ADC


Summoner Spells (Loadout)

For jungling, it's best to have

Smite
and
Flash
, but for mid-laning, you should have
Ignite
and
Flash
, especially for more kills at game start (but
Teleport
and
Flash
are also good). For ADC, I recommend
Flash
and
Heal
because Ekko is squishy and easy to kill early game.

Jungle Paths

Ekko Jungle Clear with Blue Buff Start

This jungle clear is harder to accomplish without a leash, especially when you start with nothing but your W. By the time you finish Gromp, you're on about a 4th of your health, assuming you used

Smite
on it. It also takes longer for low elo players to finish, which is why it's best to go with a Red Buff start.

Ekko Jungle Clear with Red Buff Start

Skill Path

With Ekko, your skill path is Q>E>W no matter what lane. If jungling, start by leveling your W, then your Q after you clear the Sentinel or Brambleback. Clear the other side to level your 3. If you are playing Ekko mid or ADC, start with your Q, then your E, and then your W.

Item Builds

Ekko is a great AP jungler and laner. Most times when you are playing Ekko you'll build

Hextech Rocketbelt
, though sometimes you might need to build
Shadowflame
or
Riftmaker
. The AP makes Ekko hard to up against late game, but he does need kills so he can snowball.

  • Jungle
  • ADC/Mid

Counters

Ekko's early game is pretty mediocre, and the amount of kills he can get easily on his own early game is limited, especially when jungling. (There are many champs that counter Ekko ADC, but I can't put them all).

  • Counters (Mid)
  • Counters (ADC)

Tips and Tricks

Ekko is pretty weak early game, so he needs kills to snowball.

Power farm and look for easy ganks while also avoiding having to fight enemy jungler.

Enemies can see and hear when you cast

Parallel Convergence
, so hide in a place when the enemy has no vision, so they won't be able to hear.



Chronobreak
can be used to do crazy amounts of damage, but it can also be used as an escape tool.

You can use

Phase Dive
over walls, so its useful when stealing objectives.

Ekko has a lot of combos to master. The most popular is

Parallel Convergence
,
Phase Dive
,
Timewinder
then AA.

Wait A Minute...

Ekko is a great champ to play, no matter what lane you play him in. I hope this guide helped you learn how to play him, since he is also really difficult. I got all my info from u.gg and jungler.gg. I'll link some videos I thought were cool down below. GLHF!
