Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hey everyone! I'm Crosen and this is my Ekko Jungle build! This is my first guide so bear with me as I try to explain how great Ekko is, and PLEASE let me know how to improve this guide in the comments!
Ekko, The Boy Who Shattered Time
Great ganking with a W+E combo.
He's got jukes for days!
Lots of CC for an assassin type.
Able to keep up with quick enemies and get out of sticky situations.
Rough to start in the Jungle.
No sustain abilities.
All of my item choices are built around getting CDR to get Ekko's Q Timewinder cooldown as low as possible. As well as mana regen and AP to be able to get around the map quickly and jump in and out of fights with ease, without worrying about your mana.
Also for some reason my first 2 item buys are not listed and refuse to show up so here they are:
Starting Items: Hunter's Machete Health Potionx2
First Back: Stalker's Blade Health Potion Mana Potion Stealth Ward
(if someone could help me figure out why its not working up top that would be great!)
TIME to Jungle!
Ekko's early clear isn't the best. He's very squishy so I like to get a hard leash on Gromp and smite for the poison buff then onto blue. I then head to Red and either bot or top depending on the side. After Red you will be level 3 and have all the tools you will need to start ganking!
Sit in brush, Parallel Convergence into lane, Phase Dive and jump to enemy Timewinder to slow and your passive Z-Drive Resonance will take care of the rest :)
As you continue to farm your jungle you can use Parallel Convergence on top of you to get a pretty good shield that's nice to have when you are still fairly squishy.
You can get away with not taking either of your buffs mid and late game due to the items you are building but stealing the enemy Blue is super easy using your E Phase Dive to roll through the wall smack blue and ult back to the other side using Chronobreak!
Of course always keep your jungle warded, smite wolves for the free roaming ward, and wreck anyone trying to steal your stuff!
Ekko is a bursty assassin that can get in and out of fights fast as long as you know what you are doing. He has a high learning curve but once you get the hang of it you can delete people.
Hang back and harass with Timewinder until someone decides to engage and then its party time! When your team decides they want to fight toss Parallel Convergence out to get the AOE slow and Phase Dive into it to get the stun/shield. Using your Q and E together make for a deadly combo when paired with the passive which deals extra magic damage to enemies after the 3rd hit! If you get taken to low pop your ult Chronobreak and zip back to where you were 4 sec prior and regain health and do some insane damage to anyone in the general area.
Have some fun with Ekko and find some other combos that work well together and leave them in the comments!
TIME to go...
Ekko is a lot of fun with a bit of a learning curve. If you have any questions for me or comments about how I can improve my guide PLEASE let me know! Comment, upvote if you like what you see, and have a great time with The Boy Who Shattered Time!
I'm 25, married to my beautiful wife Katherine, and we just had our first baby Nathan! I love playing league with fun people and could really use some duo que buds! Hit me up in game.
Thank's for reading!
