    This is your main core, rush Tri Force first and then build defensively against your lane opponent.
    These items can be easily built into your main build, they fit very well with Irelia's kit.

Situational Items

    Full Damage build, it's insane! Only do this if you are super fed.
    If your team is needing a full tank

VS

Aatrox

Medium

It is an even match up. Only thing to watch out for is that he does not take mana so he can last basically forever in lane if he wanted to. But his abilities cost health, and he has a good poke with his aatroxE.png. And he has good sustain with his aatroxW.png. You both have a gap closer. Careful of his passive in which he will come back to life, so you have to kill him twice. I give this match up a 6/10. Max order:ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Akali

Medium

Tank akali is becoming more and more popular. It is difficult to face but can be won. Be aggressive early as she is weak early game without her ultimate. Max order:ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Aurelion Sol

Easy

Aurelion Sol is still somewhat new to the league world. I have yet to face a really good one. But from ability standpoint, Sol has better poke and wave clear. But you have the better kill potential as you can dodge his aurelionsolQ.png with your ireliagatotsu.png. And you can get inside his passive. He is relatively squishy also, so you can kill him every time unless he ults you away. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Really easy match up. Only thing to be careful about his his rupture.png. Dodge this ability and you will win. Also stay away from him if you are less than 40% hp or he will feast.png you and you will die because it's true damage. Max Order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Darius

Hard

Hard match up, he has the advantage at all states in the game. Only good thing is that if you get a lead early, you can beat him 1v1. So ask for a gank early so you can survive in lane. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

He has a weak early game and can only poke by taking his own health away. Stay behind minions also so he can't hit his infectedcleavermissilecast.png on you. Possibly an early 3123.png would be helpful so you can lower his self healing. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Ekko

Hard

With the new tank ekko in the current meta, this guy is taking over solo que. Be aware because you will probably see this guy alot. Play passive and only trade with him when he ekkoE.png's to you. Immediatelyireliaequilibriumstrike.png him and do two or three aa's with your ireliahitenstyle.png on and then leave. Hard guy to kill, just focus on winning lane and farming. Max Order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Fiora

Easy

This match up is easy but you can still lose if you mess up, because well, it's fiora. Note, wait until she uses fiorariposte.png before you ireliaequilibriumstrike.png or you will stun yourself and probably die. But if she ever puts fioradance.png on you, simply ireliaequilibriumstrike.png her and she will not be able to attack (that is if you stun and not slow. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

Pretty easy, he has constant poke with his parley.png and raisemorale.png, but once you hit 6 it should be easy. Note: if you ireliaequilibriumstrike.png him, he can removescurvy.png to get out of the stun/slow. So careful of that, but you can win this match up because when he tries to explode his barrels on you, you can ireliagatotsu.png to him and he will be screwed. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Garen

Medium

Gosh this match up is so annoying. But i think Irelia has the advantage because you have sustain and he doesn't. Just make sure he doesn't heal up too much from his passive health regen. Constantly try to aa him. NOTE: if you think he is about to garenslash3.png you, turn on your ireliahitenstyle.png before you get silenced so you can use it while you are in battle or you might lose the 1v1. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Gnar

Easy

Easy match up. He has better poke but that is basically it. NOTE: STAY AWAY FROM HIM DURING MEGA GNAR!! You will not win. When he is normal gnar, it's very hard to lose, and you can win almost every trade. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Graves

Easy

Careful of his constant poke, other than his poke from his gravesclustershot.png, you have the advantage in all trades. Be aware from his gravessmokegrenade.png, you might get ganked and you wouldn't be able to see the jungler. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium
He has his damn turrets, but you can ireliagatotsu.png to them and destroy them. Try to always be at a lower health % than him so you can ireliaequilibriumstrike.png him and 100-0 him asap when you get on him. Careful if he uses 3157.png and then upgrade!!!.png his h28gevolutionturret.png. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Illaoi

Easy

It is hard pre 6, but once you are both 6 you will easily be able to 1v1 her. Careful to make sure you save ireliaequilibriumstrike.png till after she uses illaoiR.png, so that way she won't be able to send 4 testicles on you. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Irelia

Hard

May the best Irelia win

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

I don't see this very often, but he has good poke from his jarvanivdragonstrike.png and jarvanivdemacianstandard.png. And his jarvanivcataclysm.png does insane damage and can trap you if you are being ganked. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Jax

Easy

Easy? What? That can't be right, well yes it is. It's hard to imagine but you can actually use ireliaequilibriumstrike.png while he is using jaxcounterstrike.png. So stun him before his E runs out to stun you. If you get any advantage at all, you will snowball like crazy. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Jayce

Medium

A lot of people say that Jayce and Irelia both counter each other. So may the best player win. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Kayle

Easy

She has better poke than you, and that is all she is good for, besides her kayleR.png in team fights. Careful tower diving her withe her ult up. But if you get a good stun from your ireliaequilibriumstrike.png, you can 100-0 her before she turns on her kayleR.png. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Not common, but he has the advantage pre 6. After 6 you have the advantage. The only way you can't kill him is if he blindmonkrkick.png you away. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Lissandra

Medium

She has better poke and can lock you down with lissandraR.png and lissandraW.png. But you have better kill potential. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Malphite

Hard

This champion is super annoying. He will constantly seismicshard.png you, and if you get close he will landslide.png and your attack speed will slow. Just play passive and farm up. Try to push the lane and get his tower as he has very bad wave clear and Irelia's wave clear is really good. He also scales better than you into the late game. Hope you have a vayne on your team to kill this guy later. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Nasus

Medium

Bug the hell out of this guy early. Try and stun him with ireliaequilibriumstrike.png when he tries to last hit. but be careful in the late game when he has 300+ stacks. Just try and kill him 3+ times in lane. Be aggressive early! And once you get rageblade, you can 1v1 him all day until late game. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Naut has so much CC it's annoying to deal with. But try and get ganks and snowball off early kills. He doesn't have much kill potential on you at all. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Olaf

Hard

This guy has insane sustain and the lower health he gets the harder it is to kill him. He is also getting a buff to his olaffrenziedstrikes.png in patch 6.8 coming soon. He will beat you 1v1 almost every time. Ask for ganks. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Sorry that you have to deal with this champion. Please farm until 6 and wait for rageblade. NOTE: When you fight him, aa first to take away his passive shield and then E him and turn on W. If you ireliaequilibriumstrike.png or ireliagatotsu.png when his passive shield is on, it will do no damage at all. You start to beat him after lvl 6 as he has no ultimate in 1v1 fights. 

VS

Poppy

Hard

She can completely cancel your ireliagatotsu.png with her poppyparagonofdemacia.png if timed correctly. Also be careful standing next to walls as she will poppyheroiccharge.png you into it and stun you. Only fight with your jungler or if she steps out of position. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Quinn

Hard

She has great poke because she is a ranged champion, and can blind you with quinnQ.png and if you ireliagatotsu.png to her, she can react fast enough to quinnE.png away from you and you are possibly dead at this point. She can be beaten though, it's not impossible. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png

VS

Rammus

Medium

He doesn't have much poke or sustain. and is weak early game. But will destroy you later. Careful of his puncturingtaunt.png when you are getting ganked as you will not be able to get away for a decent amount of time. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Renekton

Medium

Do not fight him at all lvls 1-4. He is stronger, but at lvl 5 and on, if he doesn't have his rage bar past 50%, try and duel him, you should be able to win the trades. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Rengar

Easy

Both of you can win. Make sure you pay attention to his 5 stack and not get out of position or he will hill you. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Riven

Easy

You have the advantage, it's pretty hard to lose this match up. Just watch out for her third riventricleave.pngrivenmartyr.png, and rivenfeint.png away combo. She will snowball if she gets a lead but you will snowball harder if you get a lead. 

VS

Shen

Medium

Only think to watch out for is his taunt shenshadowdash.png and his shenfeint.png where you can't aa him for 1.75 seconds. Do not tower dive him. Period. Also when you see him channeling his shenstandunited.png, try and ireliaequilibriumstrike.png stun him, it will cancel it. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Singed

Easy

Just don't chase him, that's it. You can kill him over and over with your ireliahitenstyle.png damage. Just careful of his fling.png when you get ganked. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Sion

Medium

Match up can go either way. Sion might have the slight advantage, but you wave clear and farm easier and have more kill potential. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

Your ireliahitenstyle.png ignores his passive health shield. Only thing to watch out for is his tahmkenchW.png. Don't get devoured. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Teemo

Easy

In my opinion, teemo is your easiest match up. A lot of people like to disagree and complain about teemo. But I have never lost to a teemo, and I have faced over 30 to 40 of them. They always like to poke you with their toxicshot.png and blindingdart.png. They can't resist simply farming. This is your advantage because you will be at lower health %, and as soon as the teemo uses his Q blindingdart.png, you ireliagatotsu.png to him (once the blind is out), and ireliaequilibriumstrike.png immediately and turn on your ireliahitenstyle.png and ireliatranscendentblades.png and he is dead in 1.5 seconds. Every time. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.  

VS

Trundle

Hard

He has the sustain advantage and the 1v1 advantage. Just try and farm and hope for a gank. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

Whoever gets ahead first will win. But you have the advantage, you wait until you are lower health % and then you ireliaequilibriumstrike.png him and 100-0 him real quickly, they never see it coming. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

You counter him in every way. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Volibear

Hard

Dodge or switch to mid lane, this guy is your hardest match up by far. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliagatotsu.png.

VS

Wukong

Medium

He has the advantage buy you an out play him. Careful not to stun his clone. Max order: ireliatranscendentblades.pngireliaequilibriumstrike.pngireliahitenstyle.pngireliagatotsu.png.
