Guide to Countering Amumu as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Amumu

Chronobreak is a potent escape tool, but it can also be quite powerful when used offensively. Don't underestimate its damage potential.

If you can proc Z-Drive Resonance on an enemy champion, it's worth taking risks to do so. The bonus Move Speed makes it easy to escape.

Phase Dive's dash is a great tool for setting up Ekko's other abilities. Use it to get double hits with Timewinder or get into position to detonate Parallel Convergence.

Advice to Win Against Amumu

Erratic movement, or hiding behind creep waves can make it difficult for Amumu to instigate a fight with Bandage Toss.

Amumu's Despair makes purchasing primarily Health items a risky proposition.

Avoid bunching up with other allies when Amumu has his ultimate available.
