As Ekko is one of the most versatile champions of all time, now is the best time to look at all of his skins.

Ekko, The Boy Who Shattered Time, was released in 2015. Since his release, he has been a popular pick among the player base. The main reason for that is the safety he provides. With his ultimate, he can wind back time and go back to a safe position. Moreover, he gains some of his health back and does an AOE damage around him. Additionally, as he is an AP champion, he can do some insane damage.

A couple of years ago, Riot released a web series based on League of Legends called Arcane. And one of the recurring characters was Ekko. From there, he got extremely popular among both new and existing League of Legends fans.

If you are thinking about maining Ekko, then you need some of the best skins he offers. So here’s the list of all of the best skins for Ekko.

LoL Best Ekko Skins

11. Academy Ekko

  • Release Date: August 26, 2015
  • Price: 750 RP
  • Chroma: No

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model

Academy Ekko is by far the worst Ekko skin in League of Legends. Regardless of whether you consider the price or not, this skin doesn’t offer anything besides a quick model swap. And the rest of the skin in Ekko’s arsenal is far higher quality than this. Overall, you should avoid this skin if you haven’t purchased it already.

10. SKT T1 Ekko

  • Release Date: June 27, 2017
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: No

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

Before the SSG skin line in 2018, esports skins generally weren’t high quality. And similarly, SKT T1 Ekko isn’t amazing either. It’s not a bad skin by any means. It offers the same as newer skins, but Ekko already has some amazing skins. So you should take a look at those.

9. PROJECT: Ekko

PROJECT: Ekko

  • Release Date: August 01, 2016
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: No

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Voice Filters

PROJECT Ekko is Ekko’s first epic skin. And even though this skin still offers amazing visuals, it doesn’t offer any chromas. Additionally, if you want a futuristic Ekko skin, then Pulsefire Ekko already exists.

8. Prestige Star Guardian Ekko

  • Release Date: July 14, 2016
  • Price: 125 ME
  • Chroma: No

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

Prestige Star Guardian Ekko is Ekko’s only prestige skin. And even though it is very high quality, as it is part of Prestige 2.0 skins, the issue with this skin is the price. There are currently way better mythic skins that you can buy for the same price. And if you do want a similar skin, then the base Star Guardian Ekko already exists. That’s why this prestige skin is lower on this list.

7. Breakout True Damage Ekko

  • Release Date: November 08, 2016
  • Price: Special
  • Chroma: No

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects
  • New Voiceovers

If we are talking about sheer quality, then Breakout True Damage Ekko is the best Ekko skin in the game. It has the best animation, SFX, VFX, and the voiceover is just amazing. But there is a slight problem. This skin costs 200$.

To unlock this skin, you had to unbox 30 music capsules. And to buy 30 of them, it would have cost you 200$. This is an absurd amount of money to be spending on skins. For this reason, this skin is nowhere near the top tier.

6. Star Guardian Ekko

  • Release Date: July 14, 2016
  • Price: 1350 RP
  • Chroma: 9 of them

  • New Model
  • New Animations

  • New Sound Effects

Star Guardian Ekko is the newest epic Ekko skin in the game. This skin is extremely controversial among the Ekko community. The main reason is the VFX and the overall color theme. Compared to other skins, this skin looks extremely bad. But if you do get the right chroma, Star Guardian Ekko is a good-looking skin.

5. Sandstorm Ekko

If you are looking for the best Ekko skin for a cheap price, then Sandstorm Ekko is for you. Sandstorm Ekko offers the same amount as regular epic skin. Moreover, it also has different chromas. For 975RP, you can’t go wrong with this skin.

4. Trick or Treat Ekko

Trick or Treat Ekko is a Halloween-themed Ekkos skin. Since it is a newer skin, it is still one of his good-looking skins. There is not much to say, but it is nice skin to have.

3. Pulsefire Ekko

  • New Recall Animation
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

Firelight Ekko is by far the best epic Ekko skin in the game. This skin is based on Ekko that we see in Arcane. Additionally, after the new lore changes, this Ekko is now the cannon version.

As for the skin itself, it’s of a very high quality. The visuals are amazing, and it feels grounded. The only downside of this skin is that it doesn’t have a toggle for his mask. But even without that, this skin is well-made. If you want to buy an epic Ekko skin, then definitely check out Firelight Ekko.

1. True Damage Ekko

It’s not even a competition when you compare a legendary skin. True Damage Ekko is Ekko’s only legendary skin if you don’t count Breakout True Damage Ekko. And this skin has every single upside that the Mythic variant has, with little to no downsides. Additionally, the music around this skin is also great. The skin is also stylish itself.

If you don’t mind paying for a legendary skin, then you should buy True Damage Ekko.
