Now here's Ekko's Skillset summarized:
Z-Drive Resonance (Passive):
Bonus damage on third hit of any spell/auto attack on the same target. Steals Movespeed from Champions.
Sivir Q that does magic damage and slows. And it travels slowly at some point, as well as dealing more damage on the return. (higher AP ratio/per level damage)
Parallel Convergence (W):
Delayed (3s) target ground slow. Long range, short duration. Can stun enemies if you enter inside the slow area as well, while enemies are inside of it.
Phase Dive (E):
Dash. Extends your next auto attack range by a lot, and blink to target. Adds Magic Damage as well.
Back to where you were 4 seconds ago! And damage the close surroundings of that location. Also heals self a little. There's an untargetable NPC showing the exact location.
And the Strategy:
You need to play around your passive, if you can't proc it, don't try to fight.
W lets you create a pseudo 'safe space' 3 seconds after casting, place it strategically.
R is your finishing move, usually reliant on keeping the enemy busy near you for 4 seconds to have the time clone catch up.
R can also be used to fake tower dives and so on, get out of sticky situations, get back to lane quickly, and the rest of his kit has some solid utility for teamfights, where you can't reliably burst people anymore.
Most importantly, have fun, it can only cost seconds!
