Primary path on Ekko
Domination improves burst damage and assassination tools on Ekko. Most of high elo players – and our LoL pros in the the major regions – have agreed that
Electrocute is the best keystone rune to run on
Ekko. This keystone rune provides burst damage, aiding them in nuking down the enemy carries. This is usually followed up by taking
Eyeball Collection and
Sudden Impact increases your damage after dashing or being invisible. This is due to how easy it is to activate on Ekko with the amount of ways he has to dash, jump or going invisible. The additional lethality helps to take down the priority targets that much easier.
Eyeball Collection is next up. This grants the user additional damage with every killing they score.
Ravenous Hunter is the final rune of the
Domination path. This rune gives some survivability during short fights and damage trades during the laning phase. The additional health is nothing to scoff at and can mean the difference between winning or losing a battle.

Ekko players prefer to go with
