Summoner Spells Back to Top

12.png is the better sum for most of the time because of the global pressure you have with it but for some matchups with a lot of sustain you would take 14.png for your all in (e.g vs 8.png36.png266.png).

4.png is a must because it allow you to flash and kill a low HP enemy or help you escape by dash through walls etc.

Tips Back to Top

- Dont use your ireliagatotsu.png to engage. Try to find a low HP minion and ireliagatotsu.png it and ireliaequilibriumstrike.png your opponent.

- Your ireliagatotsu.png procs on-hit effects like 3057.png,3077.png and your ireliahitenstyle.png.
- Your ireliahitenstyle.png + ireliagatotsu.png can one shot ranged creep when you have 3078.png for certain time during the game.
- While running away when low try to aim your ireliatranscendentblades.png so you hit both the enemy champ and the minions.
- Your ireliahitenstyle.png andireliatranscendentblades.png can be used mid ireliagatotsu.png
- Your ireliatranscendentblades.png proc 3044.png passive if you kill a minion. Good to run away.
- Pop your 2033.png before you go for a trade to do maximum damage

Why Play Irelia? Back to Top

  She is a strong bruiser with:
- true damage
- CC (Stun/Slow)
- Sustain
- Tenacity
- Mobility

She is a great duelist and with a lot of outplay potential with her ireliagatotsu.png and she snowball like crazy.
She isn't hard to learn but hard to master and she is a lot of fun to play especially when you Q reset on multiple minions.

Her early game is bad but not too bad but her mid game is very strong and her late game is ok.
She only need 3078.png as her damage item and still one shot squishies mid game. 
She is very versatile in her builds and can build for any situations.


Early Game Back to Top

This is 39.png weakest stage of the game and you main goal for this stage is not to die and farm up for you items. 39.pngis very items and lvl reliant and falling behind mean that she will be useless the whole game. Laning phase with irelia is very simple. You last hit minions with you AA or if you are bad at last hitting use your ireliagatotsu.png. If someone engage on you all you have to do is ireliaequilibriumstrike.png+ AA the walk away. Early game if you are being push to your tower and you are very low on many you can activate you ireliahitenstyle.png which should be enough dmg to last hit. To trade with 39.png is very simple. You look for a low HP creep and ireliagatotsu.png to it, ireliaequilibriumstrike.png the enemy champ and AA then walk away or you can get a creep low so you can ireliagatotsu.png back without taking any dmg in return. For most matchups you will wait for at least lvl 4 to go for longer trades. Be careful since during that stage of the game Creeps do a lot of damage so you can either walk behind your melee creeps or walk in a bush to drop aggro. 

Mid Game Back to Top

This is the stage where 39.png is at her finest. By now she will have her 3078.png  looking to complete your next item and she will have her ireliahitenstyle.png max out. You should be able to 1v1 you laner as long as he or she didnt get a big lead. At this point either you or you laner would have gotten the other tower and looking to help around the map. At this point of the game if the enemy ADC isnt too fed and position badly you should be able to jump on him/her and kinda one shot. You and your team should be looking to take dragon, towers or other objectives. 


A lot of 39.png underestimate their strength with 3078.png during mid game then they dont do anything for their team and complain but they should try to look for opportunities and go for it. 
If you have other tanks in your team you can build another Damage item like 3153.png or if you are the only tank the go for a more tanky build. 
Try to make the most out of 39.png mid game.

Late Game Back to Top

This is the stage of the game where most champions have at least 3-4 items working on their 5th. 39.png late game isnt the worst but it isnt the best either. Her damage kinda fall of since her ireliahitenstyle.png doesnt really scale well later. If you didnt do much during the mid game then dont expect to much late game since champion like 24.png23.pngor157.png would out scale you. 1v1 them would be a bit harder and you might need help from your team. You should still be able to dive the ADC but they would have enough Lifesteal and attack speed to heal the damage and kite you. You should be a bit more careful whne diving cuz once you get caught you will most likely have to burn 4.png or die then wait a long time to revive. Your job during this stage is to peel for your ADC or if you are the only tank you will be the front line.
