Guide to Countering Elise as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Elise

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.

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

Advice to Win Against Elise

Rappel has a long cooldown. Elise is vulnerable after she has used it.

Elise's Spider Form is more dangerous when you are at low health, and her Human Form more potent when you are at high health.

Rappel will only move Elise straight up and down unless she can descend upon an enemy unit.
