Lore

A prodigy from the rough streets of Zaun,  Ekko manipulates time to spin any situation to his advantage. Using his own invention, the Z-Drive Resonance.png Zero-Drive, he explores the branching possibilities of reality. As well as experimenting with multi-dimensional probability, Ekko spends his days running wild with the other lost children of Zaun. Though he revels in this freedom, when there's a threat to his friends, he'll endure anything to defend them. To the unknowing observer, Ekko accomplishes the impossible with ease, time and time again.

Patch History

v6.11

Passive cooldown per target up. Q and R’s base damages down, but ratios up. W stun duration down.

There’s a lot going on with these Ekko changes, so let’s cut them in half and talk about each separately.

First, we’re continuing to adjust the damage differences between Ekkos that build tank and those that focus on ability power. Less bases, more ratios. That bit’s pretty straightforward - AP Ekko takes a lot of risks and isn’t all that unhealthy, so protecting his ability to opportunistically blow up champions seems like the right way to go.

Second up’s the real talk. Unlike previous changelists where we’ve been content to adjust his ratios and bases and call it a day, we’re confronting Tank Ekko’s balance challenges head-on. Simply put: 2.25 seconds is a lot of time to be stunned, and 3 seconds isn’t a whole lot of cooldown for a slow when Ekko’s got multiple slows to stack on you. While these are versatile tools for AP Ekko as a hit-and-run skirmisher, Tank Ekko disproportionately benefits from being able to consistently apply his crowd control. After all, why ‘hit-and-run’ if you never have to run?

The overall changelist looks big, but if we want Ekko to have a sustainable spot as the in-and-out slayer he was intended to be, we have to make a fundamental shift in terms of how much crowd control he brings to the table.

v6.8
EkkoSquare.png Ekko
W and E base damage down, but AP scaling increased.

Ekko’s rampage through toplane may be a problem of the present, but this isn’t the first time this has happened. To recap our feelings about Tank Ekko (from way back in 5.15) - it’s about tradeoffs. AP Ekko earns his game-ending skirmish potential by putting himself at constant risk: Chronobreak and Parallel Convergence are unwieldy when Ekko’s fragile enough to die before he can use them optimally. Tank Ekko’s survivability makes these tools much more reliable, but due to a combination of low cooldowns and high base damage, he still brings the beatdown as well. We’re fine with Tank Ekko shining in specific situations, but significantly lowering the build’s damage output (relative to AP-focused builds) ensures Ekko’s risk-reward paradigm is kept in check.

RATIO : 0.2 ability power 0.4 ability power


v6.6
Passive speed duration up. E cooldown reduced.

Ekko specializes in creating high moments through big engages and risky dives, but his time has passed - falling short compared to his counterparts in almost every lane and role. Strengthening Ekko’s ‘hit-and-run’ gameplay gives him more power to follow through on the kill pressure he creates during early skirmishes.

Z-Drive Resonance.png Passive - Z-Drive Resonance

MOVEMENT SPEED : 40/50/60/80% (at levels 1-16) 50/60/70/80% (at levels 1-16)

Phase Dive.png E - Phase Dive

COOLDOWN : 13/11.5/10/8.5/7 seconds 11/10/9/8/7 seconds


v6.3
Q cooldown lowered at early levels.

As a midlaner, Ekko's potential is a little too limited by high cooldowns and melee range. Upping his ability to scrap with opponents (or even last-hit) early game levels the playing field against the long-range, crowd-controlling mages Ekko's often asked to tango with.

v5.24
WREKKO LIVES

A few savvy players (and one handsome patch-writer) found a slew of issues with Ekko’s passive not correctly applying on-hits. No more! Go forth and live your on-hit Ekko dreams, friends.

SOMETHING'S WRONG WITH THE Z-DIFFUSER : Fixed a bug where Sated Devourer (and other on-hits) didn't apply correctly


v5.15
Lowering bases and increasing AP Ratios across the board. Passive now slows less, but gives Ekko more speed.

Reaching into the past for our 5.14 notes, we called out Tank Ekko as a thing we'd be evaluating for a future patch and see if it warranted addressing. Well, here we are.

First, let's lay some groundwork. Why's Tank Ekko such a big deal? Isn't it cool to have a diversity of builds? Good questions, but understanding why hinges on a different concept entirely: what trade-offs are being made in a champion's alternative build or playstyle? Let's use Ezreal as an example. Whether you go full AP, standard marksman items or the “Blue build,” you're emphasizing Ezreal’s burst, sustained, or poke damage at the expense of others. This lets an otherwise straightforward champion have a diverse set of contextual options for your damage-dealing needs.

Ekko deciding to be a little more risky or durable appears to have these trade-offs, but his play-making CC and escape potential is founded upon the idea that if he messes up, no amount of rewinding will save him from getting killed. Toss in a bunch of tank stats, however, and his 'high risk, high reward' paradigm shifts into 'no risk, some reward'. We're not against Tanky Ekko finding success as a situational or reactive build, but having his primary power come from ability power helps emphasize the skirmish 'hit-and-run' style Ekko's all about.

v5.14
Q cost down. E Cooldown reduced.

"While not the darkest timeline, we've arrived in a place where Ekko's much weaker in his intended role than we'd like. Basically, building tons of damage and smacking people into the next season's not as rewarding as grabbing a cinderhulk and CC'ing entire teams with impunity. While we're not directly addressing that here, we're first looking to bring up the baseline level of power for Ekko's DPS builds before evaluating how (if at all!) to bring Tank Ekko in line."

"Nothing major this patch - just some tweaks to offset 5.12's changes and to better reflect all the different ways people are playing their Ekko."
  • General
    • EVERY SECOND MATTERS : Ekko's attack frame slightly improved
    • SHOW ME SOMETHING NEW : Recommended Items updated

v5.12
Mana per level up, overall Attack Speed down. Passive base damage and Q ratio lowered. R has a mana cost and has a smaller area-of-effect.

"Ekko's changelist has a lot of moving parts, so we'll try and break down all the different things that are going on. From a conceptual level, Ekko's raw damage output is just too high for many to keep up with, often leaving his enemies little time to react to his three-hit-punch before he continues cleaning up or chrono-breaking back to the start. The specifics of which numbers are changing are targeted at his up-front burst rather than damage that's harder to set up, like Timewinder's second hit or Chronobreak's 4-second timesplosion. This has the extra benefit of cutting the effectiveness of his Tank builds that rely on base damage alone to get the biggest benefit out of Parallel Convergence and Chronobreak's delayed effects.
Lastly, we're preserving the long-standing tradition of ‘if a champion is out of mana, they're probably weaker' by making sure Chronobreak's mana cost exists. Maybe in another timeline, buddy. "

v5.11
Movespeed down, clarity increased for opponents on W and R.

"It doesn't take a time-traveler to see Ekko was a little Chrono-broken in 5.10. It's still early, so we're still gathering data and taking a good look at how players are adapting to his in-and-out skirmish style of play, but it's easy to see he needs a little off the top (have you seen his hair?). With that in mind, we're making some numbers adjustments and upping the clarity (without stomping on his damage output) for his opponents to smooth things out as we continue to evaluate Ekko's performance across each timeline."
