Summoner Spells Back to Top

There are no other choices than 12.png and 4.png. In Patch 6.10 Ghost 6.png  was buffed, more MS the higher your level up to 45%, maybe something interesting.


Just check if your opponent got Ignite, if so remember the timer when he has it up and when you can trade.

As a toplaner with the current meta of ganking as 4 people botlane or 3 people midlane kind of have to go with TP and flash.


You can also fake TP to the botlane tower to stop the dive or just stop the enemy jungler to go aggressive.
The main problem here is to use your teleport wisely. After first and second back you can teleport top again, dont use your TP when the minions are under the enemy tower.
Later on you should not use the TP just to go somewhere, use it to deffend tower or help your team!
Splitpushing is also a viable option.

Teleporting to the right place

Early game lane ganks with TP:
Try to teleport behind the target or close the way out.
Make sure who is your target and show it your allies.
Communicate with your jungler to get a 2-man-gank.

Teamfighting and late game:
Take the homeguards buff as an advantage.
Focus on helping your carries.
Keep the enemy carries out of the fight by zoning them out.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Recommended 12/0/18


Ferocity:

Line 1: Choose Sorcery for extra ability damage, works with your passive.
Line 2: Nice sustain in lane, get Feast. If you focus on helping your allies go for Expose Weakness, your laning phase is much harder without Feast! Do NOT underrate the 20 HP every 25 seconds.
Line 3: TBH I would pick Vampirism here but somehow the "pros" take Natural Talent - I trust them :)
Line 4: I go for Battle Trance since you are more than 3 seconds in a fight.

Resolve:

Line 1: Stay with the HP regeneration from Recovery. Bonus armor still means the armor you get from runes,                       masteries and items. When you play against Ap you wont have armor in runes nor in masteries. so you only             get some extra armor from items. So For example, if you purchased 3025.png and 3068.png you get 115 Armor, that             means you get 5.75 bonus armor.
Line 2: Less Damage from basic attacks is always good, even better when you face a ranged enemy.
Line 3: You do not have much self healing as offtank so Runic armor is worth picking it, go for Veteran's Scars as
            personal preference
Line 4: Reducing your Summoners is awesome, Teleport has 300 seconds cooldown (5 Minutes) with Insight only                   255 seconds ( 4:15 minutes)
Line 5: The new meta is getting 3009.png so take the tenacity and say thanks. 3111.png and Swiftness is not worth taking               it. The tenacity is multiplicative, that means 30 % * 15% = 34.5 %
Line 6: Grasp of the Undying no question!

Level Order R > Q > E > W

There is no other way than maximizing ekkoQ.pngQ first. On level 5 you will have a 60% slow every 7 seconds (no cooldown included)


Never forget that you have to be in the ekkoW.png W area to get a shield and the stun on enemies.

Your ekkoE.png E applies on-hit effects and spell effects so getting a sheen - item is a huge damage output.

Since you go for the tanky version you wont get much damage commpared to the AP version, unless they focus you, so your healing from your ekkoR.png R is not much more than the base stats.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Not a recommended starting option
    A good starting item. try to get at least a second Doran's Ring when you go back the first time.
    Swiftness is always nice to have. Tabi is awesome against auto attackers. 3 times Ring and tabi is super strong as well

Core Items

    The AD tank dmg item
    If you chose the ap way take one of there
    Is awesome against every matchup
    No idea about this item but it sounds pretty strong. it works for example against Malzahar E (dot)
    Take one of these armor items.
    More dmg to the enemies!
    This little armor piece got buffed. if you play against mixed dmg its always a choice.

Situational Items

    Fuck of Situatinal

Not really much to say, just choose your items wisely. check the enemy team not the enemy toplaner to get your build together. YOu should still get you first item "against" your laner. Dont rush MR when u face a ad poke champ.


Check the listed items above :)

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

The early will be hard and when he is maxing his silence it will be even harder.

just make sure you get some hp and check his items, ap cho hurts.

VS

Darius

Hard

You cant realy go 1v1 and make trades because that is exactly what darius wants.

Same with other bruisers, get health.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Cant really say much about mundo, you need to take care of him in the early game.

lategame he is a hard bully.

VS

Fiora

Medium

TBH, never played against fiora since she gets banned. just get health and armor first.

care that she is not able to get the passive stacks by moving around you, you can counter her moves with your E.

VS

Gangplank

Medium

He is a bit weak in the early game, later on you should not stay in the barrel area.

VS

Garen

Medium

He isnt really able to get close to you with your E up. just kite him and deal the combo damage.

VS

Irelia

Medium

early pretty easy, later on depending on her build hard.

VS

Jax

Medium

One rule, when he jumps you dash. you are always on distance and try to get your 3 stacks.

VS

Malphite

Easy

Malphite is the perfect champion to learn ekko. he cant do much and you have 3 choices to dodge his ultimate.

  1. ekkoE.png
  2. ekkoR.png
  3. 4.png
Go triforce first.

VS

Maokai

Medium

He can easily follow your E with the root.

Just make sure you keep him busy.

VS

Olaf

Hard

You cant really face him, get some health, kite him and dodge the axes.


VS

Poppy

Hard

Stay away from walls, she can trade much better than you

VS

Quinn

Hard

Range is hate. If you jump to her or try to get close she uses quinnE.png and says fk off! Quinn is really rare nowadays.

VS

Singed

Easy

If the singed is going to proxy you have literaly NO problems. you can easily clear waves. If he is trying to fling you, who cares :)


He cant really face you either.

VS

Sion

Medium

Hard to kill, you got the ability to trade against him. ask the shopkeeper for some HP and you will be fine. Dont trade to hard on level 1 to 3.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

You have a decent amount of mobility so take care of not getting eaten

VS

Teemo

Medium

figure out if he plays ad or ap fast enough to get the first item.

VS

Trundle

Medium

can be really hard if you face him not wisely. if you die in the first trades you lose the lane.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

This guy should be no problem, take you movement speed buff as advantage.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

You got the upper hand in the early game so take that advantage

VS

Yorick

Medium

you wont play against yorick its no fun. his ghosts can stop your Q so its really hard to get the stacks from you passive.

Skill usage Back to Top

Notice: If you are really ahead or fed you can use your ult to leave the base after teleporting back.
You got 4 seconds to do that! So teleport back to base, buy your items or upgrades, press R and viola back in lane.
After 20 minutes and getting the homeguards buff its much easier. DO NOT use this too often.
If you want to stun you enemies you have to be in the W AND the enemy you want to stun, otherwise you will slow them.

Option 1
  1. Place your W a decent distance behind your enemy
  2. Force him to go in the W field with your Q
  3. when the enemy is stunned/slowed dash to him, get stacks and the movement speed

Option 2

  1. Make sure you hit the enemy with your Q and get at least one stack.
  2. place your W under him
  3. dash with your E in and get the passive proc
Option 3
  1. Check how your Opponent is playing in lane, will he face you is the backing of when you get closer...
  2. Dash to him get your stacks and movementspeed and proc at least grasp of the undying once.
  3. Keep chasing or fall back to where minions fighting.

Use your R wisely to finish up enemies or to get your arse out of the fire.


Upcoming Patch/Patch Notes Back to Top

Notice: I am not going through all patches and changes, just the changes on Ekko and runes, masteries or items that afflict him.


New season new beginning. see the items section since there were many changes.


Patch 6.12


Grasp of the Undying - AWESOME change! Fervor of Battle nerf!

DAMAGE ON-HIT2.5% of your maximum health3% of your maximum health

HEALING ON-HIT2.5% of your maximum health1.5% of your maximum health

So, now you deal more damage the more health you have. Abilities grand only 1 Stack of Ferver now.


Patch 6.11

Passive:
COOLDOWN ON THE SAME TARGET3 seconds  5 seconds

Q - Timewinder:
OUTGOING HIT RATIO0.1 ability power  0.2 ability power
RETURN DAMAGE60/85/110/135/160  40/65/90/115/140

W - Parallel Convergence:
STUN DURATION2.25 seconds  1.75 seconds


R - Chronobreak:
DAMAGE200/350/500  150/300/450
RATIO1.3 ability power  1.5 ability power

Riot is changing Ekko more and more to be an AP Carry again. You can stay with the Tank build but think about 1 AP Item more and you deal good amount of damage.


Patch 6.10

Ekko did not changed so far and the items he is using are still the same.

Summoner Spell Ghost ( 6.png ) Changed, maybe an option now:
COOLDOWN210  180
MOVEMENT SPEED BONUS27% at all levels  28-45% (at levels 1-18)



Patch 6.9

Ekko got no changes, thats okay. The awesome thing about the Patch is a cuple of (tank)items got CDR!!!
Like 3083.png or 3001.png.



Patch 6.8


EkkoW.png&resize=32:W - Parallel Convergence

PASSIVE ON-HIT DAMAGE5% of the target’s missing health  3% of the target’s missing health
PASSIVE ON-HIT RATIO1% per 50 ability power  1% per 33 ability power
NEWI LIKE HITTING YOUNow deals a minimum of 15 damage to minions and monsters


The W is not really nerf for me, since you buy 3001.png and AP quints you will have at least 85 AP so you already got nearly 3 % DMG. It is much more worth then having 5% dmg of target's missing health because you will always deal that amount of Damage and not when the enemy is pretty low on health.

E - Phase Dive

BASE DAMAGE50/80/110/140/170  40/65/90/115/140
RATIO0.2 ability power  0.4 ability power



This is clearly a nerf, riot literaly says with this "go back to ap ekko", the difference is as an tank/offtank you wont deal that much damage so with the 85 AP from above you will deal ~ 13 damage less.



About me Back to Top

My name is runystar, i play league since the beginning, short time after league got the name changed from clash of fates to simple "league of legends".



The season 6 is one of the best i guess, i used to play support and thought i am not able to sololane some while ago. i changed my attitude and now i also moved to top and jungle. with the current items and masteries you get so many options to play your champion - whoever that is.
