Guide to Countering Heimerdinger as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Heimerdinger

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 Heimerdinger

Be wary of Heimerdinger's Upgrade!!!, as he can use it to find an answer to most trouble he gets into. Once his ultimate is down, go in for the kill!

It's better to destroy all of Heimerdinger's turrets at once with the help of creeps than to fight them one at a time.
