Summoner Spells Back to Top

Normally i prefer to run Ignite cause it will help you alot in snowballing.

Vs hard matchups you can run Teleport. (Example is Pantheon)

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    start with this against pantheon or something like him with much early pressure
    You can start with this against pretty much all tanks with no early damage- Malphite,Shen,maokai

Core Items

    In my opinion this is the best build for Irelia (Boots are situational - dont build mercs and zephyr cause the tenacity passive wont stack!)
    Max DMG/burst build
    you can build this way to get as much magic damage as possible (if your team is full ad)
    Best item best item best item --build it 1st

Situational Items

    If there are a lot of autoattackers in the enemy team or you lane against tryndamere or something
    If there is a lot of cc in the enemy team
    you can build this item if youre getting bursted down
    if the enemy team is full ad or the enemy adc is heavily fed
    if your team is full ad and you want to assist your team
    makes your team really tanky vs magic damage
    nice pair if snowballing
    nice item to chase with (great if snowballing)

VS

Aatrox

Medium

You can trade early on with e+autoattack. (lvl1)

Stay passiv until you hit lvl 4 and you can trade again
Build 2 1055_32.png + 3047_32.png into 3078_32.png
You can burst him really hard with your  3057_32.png

VS

Akali

Medium

In my opinion you need to 100-0 her otherwise she gets ahead and kill you.

Try to baid her W and engage if her W runs out. 
You can e + auto her at lvl 1 but dont let her proc her Q with her autoattack
Safe trade levels are: 4,6 and so on
Build 2 1055_32.png into 3057_32.png into 3078_32.png

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Never really played against him but i think it would be really easy for you cause he cant outtrade you. I think you can kill him over and over cause he got no escape.

You can trade at lvl 1 with e + auto but it wont hurt him that much cause he got that sustain
You should be fine in traiding after lvl 4
Build 2 1055_32.png into 3057_32.png into 3078_32.png
TIP: Try to let 1 lowlife minion survive to jump to it to dodge his q. Its good for chasing him too.

VS

Darius

Hard

I think this is the best pick vs Irelia cause Darius is such an annoying lanebully.

Start cloth 5 potions against him
Try to bait his Q. It will push your lane and you can farm easily.
If you wanna trade with him try to bait his Q again and after it you can free dmg him for like 4-5 seconds
Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png into 3078_32.png
If you can get 1 Kill on him the lane is pretty much over for him

Only can trade with him at lvl 6 but make sure that its a short fight so he cant use his ult.
After lvl 9 you should be fine with him as long as you can hit your stun

VS

Fiora

Easy

Never really lost against Fiora. You can outtrade her early on with e + autoattack but take care at her lvl 2-3 its stronger than yours.

If shes trying to engage on u just stun her and turn your W on. 
You can 100-0 her at lvl 6 
Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png into 3057_32.png into 3078_32.png

VS

Galio

Medium

His shield thingy is pretty annoying cause if reduces the damage of your true damage.

Hes a melee so you can trade with him whenever you want. He will farm with his skills try to dodge his skills and you can go agressive.
Build 2 1055_32.png and 3111_32.png into 3078_32.png 
Its really hard to kill him cause whenever you got your Q he also get his shield

You can go aggressive at all levels

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Should be easy if you dont get cheesed early on

3047_32.png will reduce massive damage
Stay safe until you hit lvl 4 and you can trade with him
After lvl 6 you should win all fights with him

VS

Garen

Hard

I think Garen is a really powerful pick versus Irelia.
Try to get your W on before he lands the Q on you.

Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png 
Try to stay passive until you hit lvl 7 or 9 or we will be a pain in the ass

VS

Gnar

Medium

-Against Gnar you have to play passive in the early levels (1-4|5-7)

-Dont get kited around by him. This is one fact why you NEVER EVER engage with your Q on an enemy champion.
- If you wanna trade with him try to avoid his Mega Gnar and jump on a low life minion near him. Stun with afterwards and turn your W on. Try to save your Q as long as possible. Now you have 2 Options: 
1st: Use your Q to damage him
2nd: Use your Q to jump back to a minion
But this is your own decision. 

1055_32.png and 3047_32.png will help you early on.
Dont forget to run ARMOR + MAGIC RESIST runes against him!!!

VS

Gragas

Medium

New Gragas.....hmmm i dont know hes pretty tanky and got a lot of sustain but he isnt able to kill you.

You can bully him out of his lane and he wont able to farm ever again
Build 2 of them : 1055_32.png and traight into 3078_32.png
You can trade with him when you hit lvl 4 and so on

TIP: After lvl 6 save your Q until he used his ult if you win the trades to flash-jump + ignite if hes low enough

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard

Stay passive until you get your 3057_32.png and double 1055_32.png

If you kill him once you can always 100-0 him but take care of his turrets - these things are pretty annoying

You can trade if you destroy his turrets otherwise he will kill you. But dont take much damage if you try to destroy his turrets cause its not worth
Try to 100-0 him after sheen and 2  1055_32.png and of course 3111_32.png

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Take care of his lvl 2 cause hes able to chunk your 1/2 life with his combo.

If you reach lvl 4 you'll outtrade him over and over and can kill him over and over
1055_32.png and 3057_32.png will help you alot

VS

Jax

Medium

You can trade with him at lvl 2 with E + autoattack but take care for his E

Try to bait his E with normal autoattacks and turn on him when his E is finished, you will win this trade
You cant fight him after lvl 11
Build 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png

VS

Jayce

Medium

Just stay passive till lvl 6

Try to jump on a lowlife minion and bait his knockback
If you are succesful you can all in him and kill him with 14.png
1055_32.png will help you to sustain his poke and 3057_32.png will help you to burst him

VS

Kayle

Easy

As long as you dont die pre 4, this lane should be really easy for you

Build 2 1055_32.png into 3111_32.png into 3057_32.png

VS

Kennen

Medium

Just survive early he can be really annoying at lvl 1-4

Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3111_32.png and you can kill him pretty easy
Just be careful, the kennen stun can be really painful 

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

You can e + auto him early but his lvl 2,3,4,5,6 is tronger than yours

Most of the Lee Sin are going for Hydra, that makes him really squishy.
Wait for your lvl 7 or 8 and your double 1055_32.png  and 3057_32.png you can burst him really hard

VS

Malphite

Medium

This matchup is a farmlane, you cant kill him and he cant kill you

His mana costs are worse than yours so you can bait his skills and he wont able to farm
His skills wont hurt you that much and you can outsustain his pretty easy
If you get an early kill on him you can snowball reallllllllly hard from that cause hes even more useless

VS

Nasus

Easy

Nasus is based on farm. Try to go agressive on him if he tries to lasthit with his q.

But you dont have any killpotential if he makes no mistakes. 
Try to roam, take objectives and win the game

VS

Nidalee

Medium

I HATE NIDALEE!!

Its just the earlygame that makes her sooo strong in lane...
Try to survive till you hit lvl 6 and you can all in her
Its really hard to kill her cause of her jump but you can bully her out of lane
Build 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png into 3044_32.png -> 3078_32.png

VS

Nunu

Easy

His snowballs are soooo annoying...

But you can go aggressive at lvl 4 he wont able to outtrade you
Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3111_32.png 
Try to roam and take objectives, he wont able to splitpush that fast

VS

Olaf

Medium

His E bursts you really hard but you can try to E + auto him at lvl 1

IF you can get an advantage early on ( early gank ) you will win the lane auto cause of the lvl advantage.
Build 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png

VS

Pantheon

Hard

2nd most hated Champion in league.

His spears are so god damn annoying 
Run teleport against him or he will bully you out of the lane
Try to survive until you hit lvl 9 and you can all in him easily
Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png and start with 1029_32.png and 5 Potions

VS

Poppy

Easy

This champion is pretty shitty against irelia cause her passive doesnt effect your w

You'll win the lane auto
You can trade at all levels 

VS

Renekton

Medium

Try to stay passive until you hit lvl 9 cause his burst is so damn high early on

If you hit lvl 9 you can all in him pretty easy
If he builds tiamat hes really squishy and if he builds sunfirecape or something he will be useless in teamfights.
You will win the lane after lvl 9

VS

Rengar

Easy

Rengar is soooooooo squishy but take care if he get his ferocity

You can outtrade him at lvl 4,5,6 and so on.
Just rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png  

VS

Medium

You can win really hard or you can lose really hard. It depends on your skilllevel. 

You can e + auto her at lvl 1 if he q's you
Take care of his lvl 6 he can burst you pretty hard
You can outscale him in 1vs1 cause of your 2 seconds stun
Rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png

VS

Ryze

Medium

He can burst you really hard but you can burst him really hard too.

Take care of his lvl 1-3 its stronger than yours
1055_32.png and 3111_32.png or an early 1057_32.png will help you alot

VS

Shen

Easy

Pretty much like Malphite, just a farmlane

Your roam is way more powerful than his and you can bait his ult pretty easy while roaming
12.png is effective vs him but you can use 14.png too if you want more kill potential on your enemy bot or mid lane
Farm till you hit lvl 9 and roam alot he wont able to splitpush that fast and if he tries to roam with you you will be way stronger

VS

Shyvana

Easy

Really easy after her nerfs you will auto outtrade her at all lvls 

Just rush 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png if she gets something like 3153_32.png and if she gets straight 3068_32.png go for 3111_32.png

go for 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png if hes AD or 3111_32.png if hes AP 

VS

Trundle

Hard

Trundle is one of the BEST picks vs irelia cause he will outscale you at lvl 11 even when you are like 9/1 and hes 0/4 just roam alot cause you are way more effective than him 

Take objectives and win the game. In teamfight he will kited around

VS

Volibear

Hard

He is sooo tanky and his passive gives him a lot of free hp back.

Just roam alot he will be useless if you take objectives for your team

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Yasuo isnt a good pick versus irelia

You are able to outtrade him in all levels 
Just build 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png and hes soo weak against you

VS

Yorick

Easy

Just dont let him spam his abilities and you will win auto

You can all in him at lvl 6 and with your 14.png cause he got no escape
You will snowball pretty hard from that

VS

Zac

Medium

stay passive at lvl 1-3 but if you hit lvl 4 its pretty much over for him. 

Just dont take that much poke and build 2 1055_32.png and 3111_32.png and you will auto win. 

VS

Zed

Easy

He cant really outtrade you 

If he tires to lasthit just e + auto him early 
He will only cs with his q and he wont get that big
If he used his shadow you can all in him cause he got no escape and youre able to kill him easily
Build 2 1055_32.png and 3047_32.png or 3006_32.png if youre snowballing hard 

Itembuild order Back to Top

Your first item will be the 3078_32.png --> go for  3057_32.png first. Build 3044_32.png and 3086_32.png after.

If you have like 900 gold at the first back go always for 2 1075_32.png. Its really powerful.
After the 2  1075_32.png can you buy 3057_32.png or 1028_32.png and 1036_32.png, depends on your gold you have. If you can build straight up a 3057_32.png  do it. If you have less gold than 1200 build the 3044_32.png components first.

You have 5 Items you can build second. Which are 3172_32.png , 3153_32.png , 3110_32.png , 3143_32.png,  and 3102_32.png
 3172_32.png: You wanna roam more. Even better for teamfights.

 3153_32.png: Gives you more burst to snowball even harder.

 3110_32.png: A good allround item. Gives you all what Irelia needs.

 3143_32.png: Build this versus AD bursters like Talon, Zed, Riven and so on.

 3102_32.png: Only build this if the enemy AP is overfed. Otherwise this Item gives you less than others would do.

Boots Back to Top

So lets compare the 3 boots you can get for Irelia.


We got the 3111_32.png which you can build vs AP matchups and they scale very well with your passive too
We got the 3047_32.png which you can build vs AD matchups like Tryndamere, Xin Zhao, Renekton ( cause you will block 10% damage from his W too!) or someone like Riven, Rengar or fed ADC's. 

Finally we got 3006_32.png which are EXTREMLY nice for snowballing and they will give you sooooo much damage.
So you have to think about the 3 options you have.

As an exampe: Matchup: AD -> Ninjatabi OR -> are you winning the lane extremly hard? GO FOR-> Berserker Boots.

Do you understand?

Frozen Heart/Randuins Omen Back to Top

Let's compare these 2 items: 


3110_32.png Frozen Heart

+100 Armor
+400 Mana
+20% Cooldown Reduction
Passive: Reduces the attackspeed from near enemys by 15% 

So the 100 Armor are really nice vs fed ADC's, fed Bruisers, AD Midlaners or full AD teams.
The mana is extremly nice for Irelia cause she's really manahungry 
The CDR gives you more potentional to make plays.
And the passive is a really nice bonus vs AD's too.

So it is a really good item on Irelia cause it gives you everything what Irelia needs.



3143_32.png Randuins Omen 

+500 Health 
+70 Armor

Passive: Attackers attackspeed is reduced for 10%
Active: Slows the movementspeed of nearby enemys by 35%

So Frozen Heart gives you less health than Randuins Omen
BUT it gives you +500 health, which is very nice to protect you from incoming burst.
The passive works only on someone who attacked you. Frozen Heart's passive works on every enemy.
The active is pretty nice from Randuins Omen but its kinda wasted cause your slow is on a short cooldown and you got your Blade of the ruined King too. 



RESULT: 3143_32.png is way better to protect you versus AD bursters like 91_64.png BUT 3110_32.png is the better overall item. So i would prefer to build 3110_32.png but its your choise.

Warding Back to Top

7kn2l4mp.jpg
The red-white/Blue-white pointed spots are the warding spots.
Reds:
1: If your enemy is pushing and you are ahead and youre expecting a lanegank
2: The regular ward. It's always nice to have a ward in this bush
3: If the enemy mid is roaming much or you can put a pinkward there to counter eve
4,5: A really deep ward. It's nice to catch the enemy jungler. It's also nice to help your jungler counterjungling.
Use it lategame to catch someone up and get objectives with it.

Blues:
1:Standart ward place. Overall useful.
2:Always nice to have a pink ward there. Can spot the enemy jungler in 3 ways. If he tries to: Counterjungle/Mid-gank/Top-gank you'll see it.
3:Deep Blue Ward: If you wanna shut down the enemy jungler.
