How to Use this Hero

Gradually increasing both Ekko's stars and Ascension will improve him more as a character. Eventually ascending him will turn him from a solid team buffer to a team buffer and powerful damage dealer, able to one shot most PvP enemies.

Skill Breakdown

Ekko token.png Ekko's role in a team is partly to deal damage, but more importantly to give huge team buffs. Ekko token.png Ekko has a number of unique and helpful traits that improve him as a character.


First off he has Spirit Immune Icon.png Spirit Immune, Lightning Immune Icon.png Lighting Immune, and Light Immune Icon.png Light Immune. This makes him completely immune to many attacks, such as NubNub token 0.png Chief NubNub's basic attack and all of Jin Lei token 0.png Jin Lei's attacks. Frankly it's a huge bonus, particularly to Casters and Healers, the majority of which are unable to harm Ekko at all without use of particular special powers.

He also has Team Energy Vault Icon.png Team Energy Vault, which gives your whole team a guaranteed 100% chance to resist energy drain (=immunity). Energy is neede to use special attacks. This effects Zurk token 0.png Zurk, Balog token.png Balog the Loud, The Furnace token 0.png The Furnace, and Ignus.png Ignus the Mad who can steal energy.

Ekko also has Magical Icon.png Magical I (25% damage reduction from magical attacks) and Ethereal Icon.png Ethereal. This grants him another 20% damage reduction and protects him from killing blows in the first round. However shield-piercing attacks can still kill Ekko immediately, and debuffs like Burned Icon.png Burned and Poisoned Icon.png Poisoned can kill him at the end of round one when the shield wears off and the damage of the debuff is dealt.


Ekko's Energize Icon.png Energize is one of the best team buffing powers in the game. It does three helpful things. It gives your whole team Electric Skin Icon.png Electric Skin, Crit Up Icon.png CRIT+ and +2 energy. Electric Skin gives any enemy melee attacker a chance to become Shocked Icon.png Shocked. CRIT up is immensely helpful and if combined with a powerful one shot character or an AOE character, it can result in an enemy team or a boss being devestated by immense amounts of CRITS. Just watch out for opposing elements. And the +2 energy gives the whole team +2 energy to their powers on cool down. Likewise, if at the start of a Dungeon, energize can be used to quickly gain the player access to all their abilities. 

Eletrical Storm

Electrical Storm Icon.png Electrical Storm is an effective power if used in the right situations. It deals 2 kind of damages. It's direct Lightning damage to all targets hit. The amount of this damage depends on Ekko's Attack stat. Additionally there is a good chance to shock the targets. When an shocked enemy is hit again the Shocked Icon.png Shocked debuff will deal damage to the target's allies. The amount of this damage depends on Ekko's Skill stat.

Electrical Storm is best used when Ekko is fully ascended, to give him a target for Intensify Shock Icon.png Intensify Shock. However, it is also effective against a group of Armored targets, or a single boss, as it deals damage to the boss and shocks him a great deal, too. This is most effective against the Lich

Shock is ineffective vs enemies immune to shock for 2 reasons: First they can't be shocked (debuff is not applied), and second they take no damage from other shocked enemies. You will see "0 damage" popping up in that case. For example High King Valkin token 0.png High King Valkin, Jin Lei token 0.png Jin Lei, Emily token 0.png Archangel Emily and all Constructs are Shock Immune Icon.png Shock Immune due their traits.

Intensify Shock Icon.png Intensify Shock is Ekko's ticket to becoming a full time damage dealer. Ekko already hits pretty hard, and dealing x3 damage on a shocked target will result in a powerful swing. In addition, if he is energized, he is also almost guaranteed to get a CRIT. Combining all of these together nearly certainly results in a dead target. This power is also very effective on Tsume. As well as most likely one shotting the dreaded demon, the shocked hits all enemies in the area. As shocked attacks technically count as the person who was shocked attacking their allies, killing Tsume means his whole team will suffer from a shocked attack with the bonus of maximum Savage Fury. This often results in the whole enemy team either dead or critically wounded. 

Synergy With Other Heroes

Ekko's Energize will help any character, but the CRIT up with benefit people in particular who give Debuffs with CRITS. Lupina's Grill Master or Alexandros's Shocking Touch are all good examples of this.

Black Diamond's Light Crusader helps Ekko have an even higher CRIT chance, as well as any other Light Heroes on the team. 

As a general rule, Ekko's Energize will really help any hero in the game.

Uses in PVP

Ekko is a very under-appreciated character in PvP. Mainly because he is a fantastic counter for many of the more popular characters in PvP. As explained before, he is one of the best counters for Bovus and also the most reliable and at full ascension can counter Tsume well. Also, thanks to Spirit and Lighting Immune, Ekko is completely immune to Pontifex Mortis and NubNub, another two feared characters in PvP. As a result, Ekko is a fantastic addition to take on any PvP team. His one weakness in PvP is his low health, however the new buff, Heroes Revamped!, Ekko also has increased health, making him even more powerful. I

Notes and Tips

Raid tip: Use Ekko when you see NubNub token 0.png Chief NubNub on the opposing team, since NubNub's attack is a spirit attack. Ekko is Spirit Immune Icon.png Spirit Immune. Also, take advantage of this ability when facing casters, since many have spirit attacks.

Ekko token.png Ekko is immune to be Possession Icon.png Possessed like all Spirits and Constructs. His Spirit Immune Icon.png Spirit Immune trait makes him highly resist (75%) the debuffs Feared Icon.png Feared, Stoned.png Stoned and Marked for Death Icon.png Marked for Death.
