Threats to Ekko with this build
Welcome to this guide around echo.
Hopefully you will learn how to play Ekko, and not least how to jungles with him and ganker. This build and guide is build around a hybrid Ekko jungler. If you read through my guide, you should probably learn how to play Ekko and learn how Ekko hybrid function.
At the start you will notice that he is weak and therefore can use help in the beginning. Therefore I recommend starting with the bot to get the fastest start.
But if you want to learn more, read further down.
Passive - Z-Drive Resonance
Ekko's abilities and basic attacks apply Z-Drive Resonance to affected enemies upon damaging them, lasting up to 4 seconds and stacking up to 3 times.
At 3 stacks, Z-Drive Resonance is consumed to deal 20 - 190 (based on level) (+ 80% AP) magic damage to the target, applying spell effects and Slow icon slowing them by 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% for 2 / 2.5 / 3 seconds. Against enemy champions, Ekko also gains Z-Drive Resonance 2 40 / 50 / 60 / 80% bonus movement speed.
Z-Drive Resonance cannot affect the same target more than once every few seconds.

After a short delay, the device contracts and rushes back to Ekko, dealing additional magic damage to enemies along its path.

Creeping / Jungling
Start With Botlaners, to get best start
As said before , I recommend that you start the bot , where you have two to help you . it helps you to get the first monsters killed without smite , and then use smite on Blue or Red buff.
On your route through the jungle , I recommend learning to get Rift Scuttler in route to create vision for you and teammates. Vision can win the game for you, and help you secure the dragon and Baron later in game.
It will probably also help you see where the enemy's jungles are and know where he will go.
When you gank you will have to wait until you have the first three spells, but if possible, wait for level 6 or above .
Once you have your ult up, it's easier to load hit the tower and get out again . or if you are about to gank , and there are more enemies, you ult to do much damage to several of them.
If you need to gank with Ekko, you will need to learn to put your W right. You must learn to put it so they can not go back, or then you can stun them.
There are two ways you can gank on.
1. Before you go in, throw W in lane, go in and use E and junp on them, then Q. Hope they run in yours W, so they will be stuned.
2. Go in lane, Throw Q to slow, then W and E to junp to stun.
If you can land a W right, i would say to go with number 1. Because there you kan throw it from a bush, then E and Flash to hit them before they can get away.
When you end up in teamfights, You'll have to get away, and turn to put a W to stun the opposing team. If successful, Use Q through as many as possible. and when it is at end in the group.
One way to get surprisingly into the team fight is to use your E along with Flash, to get the longer reach. But just before take advantage of W to stun them.
Ekko is incredibly strong if you can hit a W on the target, and then kill them. Most times the enemy can not do anything.
