Guide to Countering Lux as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Lux

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 Lux

When retreating with low health, be prepared to dodge Lux's Final Spark, a red targeting beam fires prior to the main beam, so try to move to the side if possible.

Lux has powerful zone control abilities. Try to spread out and attack from different directions so she cannot lock down a specific area.
