Summoner Spells Back to Top

You shall have smite. Smite is the core for be a jungler. Without smite you can lose fast. You will not be available to kill the monster in your own jungle... 

I will say that flash is better than ghost. Take the flash, if you want to get a escape ability. Ghost will be good, if you hunt someone.

How to gank as Irelia Back to Top

It''s not hard to jungle with Irelia, if you already know, how to jungle. Irelia jungle have one problem. That is her weak early game. Irelia is good at ganking. Because of her stun/slow from E, and the dash from Q. 

Gank combo: 

Before level 6: 

( Q > E > W > AA )
( Q to low health minion > E > W > AA > Q > AA ) 

After level 6: 

( Q > E > W > AA > R > AA ) 
( Q to low health minion > E > W > AA > R > AA > Q > AA ) 

A bit about me and why I make this guide Back to Top

Hi guys. 

I'm a old Irelia progressively. I have mained Irelia since level 23, and have played league of legends since season 1. I got over 1000 games with Irelia, in season 4. I was Diamond 1, thanks to Irelia. I was the best Irelia on EUNE, in a shoot time, and was number 3 worldwide.

In the end of season 4, I fail and become super bad, with Irelia. It do so I end in platinum 4. Now I am fine again, and hope I get back to the diamond again.

I start in season 3, with play Irelia jungle. I start because, top was hard for Irelia. So I wanted, to try something new on Irelia. So I tried Irelia jungle, and that was good. I played it a while. Become super good to it. I wanted to make this guide, so other peoples, also can play it.

Irelia top is of course the best. But Irelia jungle is viable, and strong. For not say that it's fun to play.
