Threats to Ekko with this build

Threat Champion Notes
1
Akali This lane should be extra easy. When she tries to poke with her Q, you poke harder, make her pay time and a half for each engage she tries.
1
Cho'Gath Ahhhhh, the Cho'gath mid. Avoid his Q and you will win every time. Just to note, watch for his sustain in lane, as it will be slightly better than your own if you don't manage well.
1
Fiddlesticks Fiddle mid, in my mind, doesnt work, unless the person playing Fiddle has a very high skill cap and the opposing player is relatively new. He's squishy as hell and will be easy to kill after a couple well placed Q's.
1
Janna Enjoy the feed.
1
Kassadin Enjoy the feed. Just don't let him get any kind of lead on you, because if the Kass gets fed, this 1 can go to a 9-10 real quick.

Soraka Enjoy the feed.

Zilean Enjoy the feed. Just dont get stunned.

Introduction

Ekko is a burst assassin much like Diana or LeBlanc and while relatively easy to play, has a high skill cap. You must be able to position yourself and manage your cool downs properly to ensure success in lane.

Farming

Farming with Ekko is easy. Simply use your Q for the dual purpose of poking the enemy laner, and to hit as many minions you can on the way out and in, this will apply two stacks of your Z-drive, which then coupled with one auto should make short work of most minions. I like to save my E as an escape or to trade with my opponent and try to avoid using it to farm.

Team Work

Playing as Ekko can be a ton of fun 1v1 in lane, but when you go into team-fights things can get hectic. Ekko needs to dance on the edge of battle poking with his Q until an engager on your team takes the initiative and goes in. Once the fight is engage you want to drop your W where most of the enemy champions are located and then E to that location to stun as many of the enemy as you can and to gain a shield. Lastly, try and make sure that your ult is located amongst some of the enemy before you use it, to maximize the heal you'll gain as well as the damage output. At the end of the day, it comes down to how well positioned you are at the start of the fight and how well you can get your ult positioned before you need to pop it.

Creeping / Jungling

For those of you who plan to jungle with Ekko, if you've played Diana, its similar to that. His early game is slow, but once you hit level 4 you'll be fine. Start off with your W on the camp, then Q and E in, by then the stun/shield will have applied and the mob should be close to dead.
