biggest takeaway for me is that Im not supposed to Q wave 1 as its coming to lane. I sort of always did that assuming its best for hitting 2 fast and trying to surprise them with EQ also, opinions on some sort of AD or AP bruiser Ekko builds with the new items (not only for mid of course)?..

The items are different for each player, your itemization is working because it suits your playstyle but overall the most players will give free lp with this itemization... It's wrong in so many ways especially NT is the worst option for 2nd item you need the burst damage 99/100 fights will be very fast when you have only 2 items there is no time to proc passive to more than 2 targets in a fight even with NT your job is to burst 1 enemy and play with number advantage and that's why NT never gonna help as a 2nd item. That's a unique itemization and harder way to make it work but I agree with anything alse you sayed.

Saw you run nashors instead of lich. Why? I have tried it out and started struggling with him. I also had tons of problems with kat...she is so mobile makes it really hard to match her. Csing on him is a huge issue as well. If you dont spam your q how can you cs? If I try to cs against a katarina that is hard shoving me without using my q im hosed...lol

I don't think this is specific for ekko, but what do you do as a midlaner when you're against junglers like hecarim/olaf since you probably can't burst them down and even it's possible to get 1v2 by those, and it feels like both options are bad since if you don't go help your jungler in the river well he's gonna loose and if you go help them and someone arrives you're both dead. This is a problem I get often since I play ekko/kassadin/vladimir.

@Golden Memes well for example with lane control you can either get some extra kills or die less often, because when the lane is on your side and the enemy has low mana, is a mage, in low elo they still play pretty uncareful, so as Ekko I can kill the enemy more often than I thought because you can punish them very easily

Hey Curtis ! Maybe you or someone else will be able to answer to this : how about using attack speed runes into the stock standard ekko rune page ? I've been trying to test the "waveclear spikes" in practice but its very hard to synchronize due to how minion scaling works in an actual game. I usually take AS on a lot of ap champs mid, and it just feels very clunky to suddenly lose the rune anytime I wanna play ekko.

You legit have made me a god level Ekko in my elo and I'm climbing now. Your video on jungle tracking with keeping my self accountable by tracking my stats through the season was like an epiphany. Thank you so much for your guidance Coach! One thing I will say as identity-wise, I've found by studying you I'm able to minimize really well in even extremely hard matchups (I still ban Akali though, lol), so running dematerializer for me makes guaranteeing the level 7 kill Qs on ranged easier, allowing me to shove/roam consistently and keep up my cs. Thanks for helping me find my Ekko identity.

I have watch 1 hour of video and get to game. Ekko was unfortunatly picked by enemy, so I picked Diana. And I thought "why not use the same concept to Diana as Curtis has spoken about Ekko". I played against Yasuo cause enemy Ekko was top. I destroy Yasuo and then by joining to teamfights later and flanking i just destroyed enemy backline and carry game. My build was: electrocute -> sudden impact, eyeball and ravenous hunter and second resolve -> revitilize and shield bash. I rushed protobelt into nashor. It is insane how watching 1 hour of Ekko guide can improve my gameplay on similar types of champions.

I am watching a faker vod in which he is versing a victor and all he does is q the whole wave constantly, even at lvl 1? You're saying thats wrong but he is not losing any cs and victor is not freezing? So is that wrong of him or is that just situational? I mean it's in challenger so does that just work diffrently in high elo?

Hey Curtis, great video! I've been trying to look up the answer to my question, but haven't been able to find it with s11 changes, since people talk about the old Dark Seal. When do you decide to upgrade Dark Seal into Mejai Soulstealer instead of going for other items? I decided myself that I can do that if I have 8-10 stacks and rocketbelt + aiming to snowball the game. Otherwise I just go for Nashor's Tooth. It's just that upgrading DS into Mejai doesn't give you a lot besides mythic passive(with the belt) and the ability to get more stacks.

While trying to find vids on him, they werent really very helpful and were treating the audience like some things were just plainly obvious just because theyve been playing league for years (its only been 8 months for me, currently bronze 1 :) ) so im super grateful that you took the time to make an indepth video like this i loved it from start to finish.
