New Champion: Ekko

Ekko, our upcoming and recently revealed champion, is now on the PBE for testing!

Ekko, The Boy Who Shattered Time

Here's Gypsylord with an Ekko PBE feedback thread:
"Greetings summoners! 
Ekko is about to crash onto the PBE and we need your help! This thread is the place to hit us with your Ekko feedback. What's fun about him? What about him sucks to play against? Does a spell feel bad to use or unresponsive? Why is that? Is he missing something? Does he have too much of something? DOES HE FEEL SMART? Whatever is on your mind. Let us hear it. 
I'll be reading this thread daily and trying to respond with my thoughts as I can. Just know that the final weeks before release are pretty hectic so I may go silent at times. THAT DOESN'T MEAN I'M NOT READING THIS THREAD. Also, I'll be posting any changelists we come up with as we balance him over his stay on the PBE so watch this thread for updates. 
DO NOT POST BUGS HERE. RIOTSIMBA IS RUNNING A BUG REPORT THREAD HERE: ---(waiting for thread to be posted)---"
The Ekko bug report thread can be found here.

Z-Drive Resonance (Passive)
Every third attack, or damaging spell on the same target, deals 15 + 12 per level (.7 AP) bonus magic damage and slows it by 40/50/60/70/80% [at levels 1/6/11/16/18] for 2/2.5/3 seconds [at level 1/6/11] (cannot be triggered on the same target more than once every 3 seconds).
If the target is a champion, Ekko gains the speed for himself. 

Timewinder (Q):
60/70/80/90/100 Mana 
11/10/9/8/7 sec Cooldown 
Ekko throws a device that deals 60/75/90/105/120  (+0.2 AP) magic damage to enemies it passes through. It expands into a slowing field on the first champion hit, slowing everything inside by 32/39/46/53/60%. It then returns to him after a delay, dealing 60/85/110/135/160 (+0.6 AP) magic damage to all targets hit upon return.

Parallel Convergence (W):
22/20/18/16/14 sec Cooldown 
Passive:Ekko's basic attacks deal bonus magic damage to enemies under 30% health equal to 4% (+1% per 35 AP) of their missing health (max 400 damage vs. minions and monsters). 
Active:After a 3 second delay, Ekko creates a short-lived chronosphere at the target location that slows enemies who enter by 40%. If Ekko enters the sphere, he will detonate it, gaining a shield that absorbs up to 150/195/240/285/330(+.8) damage for 2 seconds. Enemies caught inside are stunned for 2.25 seconds.

Phase Dive (E):
40/50/60/70/80 Mana 
15/13/11/9/7 sec Cooldown 
 Ekko dashes a short distance in the targeted direction. His next attack will deal 50/80/110/140/170 (+0.2 AP) bonus magic damage and teleport him to his target."
[The light circle is the enhanced range of his next attack]

Chronobreak (R):
No Cost 
90/80/70 sec Cooldown 
Makes Ekko invulnerable and untargetable, and teleports him back to wherever he was 4 seconds ago. Ekko heals himself for 100/150/200 + 20/25/30% (+1% per 30 AP) of the damage taken over the last 4 seconds, and deals 200/350/500 (+1.3 AP) magic damage to all nearby enemies on arrival.

[Note: The time-clone of where he was 4 seconds ago is always visible if the R is not on cooldown. Once he uses R to port to it, the clone disappears until it is ready to use again. Enemies can see the time-clone if they have vision of him]


and Ekko's Champion Select quote:

"It's not how much time you have, it's how you use it."

As you have likely heard in the voiceover video above, Ekko also has oodles of special interactions for various champions - including special taunts for Caitlyn, Dr. Mundo, Garen, Jayce, Janna, Jinx, Twitch, Urgot, Vel'Koz, Vi, Viktor, and Zilean - when purchasing certain items, when being revived by Zilean's ultimate, and when dodging Caitlyn's R using his own R.

The individual sound clips for each of these VO lines can be heard over at the LoL Wiki's background page for Ekko!

Release skin

[NOTE: Sandstorm Ekko's skin texture was updated in the 2nd 5/13 PBE update. The below pictures have been updated. Click here for a comparison image between the two versions.]

Sandstorm Ekko

975 RP

[Video out of date]

Here's Nurse Flan with a PBE feedback thread for Sandstorm Ekko:
"In the depths of a forgotten ruin in Shurima, guarded by an arcane sandstorm, hides a mysterious relic of time. A golden hourglass filled with glowing sand, the physical manifestation of Time. 
A young orphan braved the harsh trials for a relic to help save and protect the childhood friends he had left. Sandstorm Ekko emerges from the dunes, equipped and prepared to protect the forgotten and forsaken people of Shurima.
  • Completely new model!
  • New sandy particles for abilities!
  • New recall!
  • Additional new sandy SFX over his abilities!
  • *This launch skin is 975 RP (pricing always subject to change!) 
As players who get the first look at this in-progress skin, it would be wonderful to hear your thoughts and feelings on Sandstorm Ekko! The feedback and bugs you leave here will help us get a better idea of things we may still have to take a look at. :] 
See you on the Rift!"

[Removed] New loading screens

[NOTE: These new loading screens are a part of the map changes that went out earlier then intended and will not be released in 5.10. The second PBE deploy of the day REMOVED them from the build but I'll leave them down here for the sake of visibility.

To join the new Summoner's Rift and Howling Abyss loading screens from previous patches, Twisted Treeline and Crystal Scar have new loading screen backgrounds.

Twisted Treeline & Crystal Scar

The Advanced tutorial also has a new loading screen, using the Vi & Ahri vs Blue Sentinel art.


  • A golden spatula has been added in the upper left part of the jungle.
  • Poro has been added to Summoner's Rift. File name is "SRU_Poro". He seems to spawn in each base if that team has a champion from Freljord on their team.
  • If you load into a game with five Pool Party skins (or Rumble in the Jungle or  Surfer Singed), a yellow rubber duck will spawn on Summoner's Rift near the bottom Middle part of river.
  • They've added a glow to the runes around Baron's pit.
