Summoner Spells Back to Top

The game have change a lot.. and TP have got nerfed.. That make me take Ignite over TP. But against many champions where I know that, I can't kill my laner. So would I still pick up TP

TP is still really good on Irelia. You can make super ganks on bot, and get your ADC ahead. You can also just use it, as a fast back to lane thing. Irelia is a fine split push champion. So you can also split push on a lane, and come to a team fight, when the team needs you.

I really like to use Flash on Irelia. It's your only escape ability on Irelia, if not some enemy minions low HP around.

Masteries Back to Top

I like this Masterie page on Irelia. It gives you so much Life Steal, Heal Regen and Dmg. 

The page make you also get some Spell vamp, what was useless to Irelia before preseason started. But now it's good to get because, you get items like Guinsoo and Iceborn on Irelia. This 2 items make you get some AP, and this small AP number, do so you heal like 100-300 HP more with your ultimate 

I will down here, fast say what is good with the selected points.

Ferocity:

Fury: Give you Attack speed and that is really good on Irelia.
Double Edged Sword: Make you deal more Damage.
Vampirism: Gives you Life steal and Spell vamp, wish is very good on Irelia now, because of Guinsoo.
Oppressor: Deal more dmg to your enemys. When you slow/stun with E. 
Battering Blows: Make you Ignore 7% of enemy Armor.
Fervor of Battle: Stacks Damage with the number of AAs you do to your target. This Masterie point + Guinsoo passive is super Dmg on Irelia.

Resolve: 

Unyielding: Give you bonus +6% Armor and Magic Resist. Really usefull on Irelia too
Tough Skin: Make you tankier against AAs. 
Runic Armor: Give more Life Steal, Spell Vamp and healing effects to Vampirism and Perseverance. It works also good with Irelias own heal effects, from W and R.
Perseverance: Healing 200% more when below 20%

Here is some other good Masteries you can use as Irelia:

There is to ways to max on Irelia. 

Max E first when you are against a range champion with massive poke, and so have low HP.

I will Max W in almost every game. Because it do so you deal more true damage. But also because you heal more on hit. When it is maxed

Start as Irelia Back to Top

How to start top against other heavy top champions as 39_icon_64.png:

In early game try to defend with Irelia. Then you come in level 9 so begin attack. 


If you are against someone with heavy ultis like 76_icon_64.png122_icon_64.png62_icon_64.png and more you need to attack them before level 6. 
I know Garen have a good ulti but 86_icon_64.png is also good before he got ulti so only defend with him.

If you are against someone there counter you hard like 24_icon_64.png. So only defend and wait for your jungler come and help you. 

If you are against someone you counter hard like 41_icon_64.png. So attack so much you can after level 3. But be care for the enemy jungler will maybe help him.
