Guide to Countering Nidalee as Ekko

Tips for Playing as Ekko against Nidalee

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 Nidalee

Nidalee's Javelin Toss deals more damage the farther she is. If she is far away, it's imperative to dodge it.

Nidalee's Takedown deals extreme damage to Hunted targets, but she has to get close to use it. Save your crowd control or defensive abilities for when she goes in for the kill.

Nidalee's Hunt debuff is only applied with Javelin Toss and Bushwhack. Avoiding being hit by these abilities will impair her ability to deal follow-up damage.
