    Ekko jungle?

    So I tried out ekko this week and find he is pretty fun to play. The problem is that I main jungle and I want to stick to jungle. I've seen people play him in jungle but is ekko good as jungle? And any recommended builds?

    He's definitely good enough to be a solid jungler. When I've played him I've had the most success with full AP builds (kinda like an Evelynn style build).

    Enchantment: Runic Echoes, Lich Bane, and Zhonya's Hourglass are all good. You could go tankier with stuff like Iceborn Gauntlet, Dead Man's Plate and Guardian Angel if necessary. Obviously Void Staff and Rabadon's Deathcap are good choices for damage.

    I haven't seen a ton of Ekko jungle but the few good ones I've played against usually go full damage. Pretty fun champion, hope you enjoy! :)

    Iceborn Gauntlet is actually bad for ekko since he got an W Change during the Assasin Update and doesnt Scale anymore with Tanky stats. I would pref. instead of an Iceborn Gauntlet something like Randuim´s Omen because it gives Ekko HP in his build to not get bursted down. (Armor and MR are start to being usefull at 2000HP)

    I think it can be good in some team compositions cause it's got slow, stun, and can make some suprise gank. For example you notice a ward in the nearest bush to bot lane.You go home to shopping, amd when they think they are safe and they can easily start a trade, you ult back and make a succesful gank.
    In the end, i think you must take it some compositions, like no mage in team, but it isnt the best jungler champion.

    Ekko jungle is completely viable as long as the player is decent enough to make proper usage of Ekko's W. His gank potential is high as if he makes a mistake or the laner ends up 1v2ing, Ekko has a very reliable fallback, his ultimate. This means for junglers that are unsure if they are able to 2v1 a laner with high damage (such as darius or illaoi) ekko is a very strong pick.

    Ekko's tanky build potential has been nerfed and no longer viable, as full damage is much better if the player is decent. Full damage is a much better and more viable option as his ultimate can make up for his squishiness. I hope this answers your question

    TLDR: Yes if you can land your w and use ultimate properly

    He doesn't have the best clear, but his ganks are top notch if you can play ekko well.

    And for builds, check the builds tab. He is pretty popular jungle.

    To be honest he is not really a strong jungler at the moment, but he sure as hell is fun to play in jungle in normal games.
