Guide to Countering Azir as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Azir

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 Azir

Try to think of Sand Soldiers as fire. Don't stand in the fire.

Azir has immense damage over a prolonged amount of time but lacks the upfront burst of other mages. Try to burst him out before he can turn a confrontation around.

Azir relies on his soldiers to deal damage and can only move them so often. Try to capitalize on windows of time when his soldiers are stationary.
