Summoner Spells

Back to Top ▲
4.png I'm always using flash flash it's a must-have summonerspell on irelia. Irelia is a gap-closer and with flash, you are able to catch nearly every carry in the game. It adds opportunity for flash + Equilibrium Strike [E] which allow you to punish a carry who is out of position

14.png Nearly all games I'm using ignite it adds some extra burst and will be a finishing blow on many kills.

12.png Sometimes I use teleport when enemy team got global pressure 98_icon_64.png 4_icon_64.png  80_icon_64.png  or enemy top laner also might have teleport. When enemy gank bot lane you can countergank with your teleport. In soloqueue this will help a lot too prevent 4_icon_64.png getting fed in mid and it can prevent 98_icon_64.png from turning a fight.

Quintessence

3x - 2.25 attack damage
  • Increase your damage output
  • Make it easier to last hit
  • Able to trade autoattacks with enemy top laner
3x - 2.7 health regen / 5 sec
  • Increase your sustain in lane
  • Able to survive longer against though lane matchups like 58_64.png 122_64.png 102_64.png 36_64.png

Marks

9x - 0.95 attack damage
  • Increase your damage output
  • Make it easier to last hit
  • Able to trade autoattacks with enemy top laner
9x - 1.7% attack speed
  • Increase your sustain in lane
  • Make it easier to last hit
  • Able to trade better against gap-close killers / bruisers like 24_icon_64.png / 122_icon_64.png
  • Higher dmg output with max lvl Hiten Style

Seals

9x - 1.41 armor
  • Gives you opportunity to trade with enemy top laner
  • Helps you sustain your lane against ad champs
  • Helps a lot against ranged auto attacks

Glyph

9x - 1.34 magic resist
  • Take only flat magic resist if you are against enemy champion who deals magic damage. Example against rengar it will be great because most of his damage he will deal to you comes from "W" which is magic.
9x - 0.15 magic resist per level
  • If you don't lane against any magic damage I would suggest you to take mgr per lvl, because it give you more resistance mid-late game and give you more sustain.

Notes

Some people may prefer attack speed and it also works great with Irelia's (W). I personally prefer flat AD.

Pre-season 4 patch

Defense tree is too strong, so it's best to focus the defense tree compared to offense tree. 
It all depends on the enemies, if the enemy team got ad crit heavy champs like 51_64.png or 67_64.png you might want to take a point in Reinforced armor. 
Depends on your laning opponent you could remove points from either armor or magic resistance and put them in enchanted armor or legandary guardian.

TL;DR

R > W > E > Q

Explanation 

Always max Hiten Style [W]. Your burst will be enormous, and it gives you sustain in laning phase. Afterwards i max 
Equilibrium Strike [E]. You think why? I max it for the extra cc. I think CC > Dmg. The extra second of cc (in max lvl) will make it easier to setup a kill when your jungler is ganking or 1v1. It also add higher chance of escaping an enemy gank because you can stun them and run away. 

Standard combo (engage)

AA = Auto Attacks
Q (minion) > E > W > Ignite > AA until enemy champion flee > Q. Use ulti in between every autoattack or when he/she flees. 

Standard combo (Enemy close)

E > W > Ignite > AA until enemy champion flee > Q (minion if possible) > AA > Q. Use ulti in between every autoattack or when he/she flees.

What do you think about AS Mark runes? "There isn't a champion there is considered a counter to Irelia and she is able to lane against everyone and farm well." How about Olaf how to play against him poperly?
4

AS runes: Read notes in the bottom of the text in section "Runes" Against olaf, I stay a bit behind and farm with my Q. Don't lasthit a minion if he can use his true damage on you and disengage you. Against olaf you need to wait to atleast lvl 7, mby you can be able to kill him in lvl 5, but only with full health. When laning against Olaf his goal is to poke you with his true dmg, he will try to land true dmg on you and run away, and do it all over again until u are nearly dead. So when you lane against him you should jump him when having full health, drop your combo Q (minion) > E > W > Ignite > AA > Q > AA and use ulti in between or when he is running away. You are stronger than him 1v1 with full health after lvl 5-7+. Hope this explain, I will update champion counter later :)

He can use his true damage since first level. It's pretty hard to last hit minions and avoid getting true damage on face. If I have to avoid getting true damge I have to leave a lot of last hits on the lane and wait till lane will be pushed under my tower. Olaf is the only champion I had problems staying alive. I usually have 20 minions less than him but I get a lot of harass.

When his first wave arrive, and he isn't in lane. Try to run up and pull the minions together, and then run into a bush. This will make his minions push faster and you can get under turret fast. Yes it can be hard to last hit against olaf, and he will definitly get a bit further ahead of you. But you need to wait for at least lvl 5 before trying to do something against him and I would suggest you to wait until you have backed once. Remember you can stay back in base and buy an extra health potion before running top, this will help you survive your lane a bit longer. Feel free to ask if you got more questions :)

Attack Speed items got huge nerf in this patch. Have you consider getting Berserker boots instead of ninjas? What do you think about putting some potions into Medition in masteries (Mana regen).
2
2 years ago
Mana regen: No. When I started played irelia I used a lot of mana, but I got aware of it and now I never really ran out of mana in lane, because I'm better in managing when to use my spells, instead of farming every minion with Q, I use autoattack 95% of the time. You should try to focus on only using Q if u can't get the minion with anything else. In soloQ i think AS boots would be viable, if u win your lane, you can win harder with these boots. They also helps you regen more health with your lifesteal. But I think I will run 9/21/0 if i'm going berserker greaves, because I like the reduced dmg from ninja tabi or the tenacity from merc threads.

Let's say I start with Boots and HP pots and I have around 1300 gold. I go back to base. And I wonder if it's viable to get Avarice blade and Dorans blade and rush to statikk shiv or just go standard build with 2 dorans or phage.
2
2 years ago
Against Olaf i would not rush phage, because the slow is not effective against him. I would instead go for 2x dorans blade for sustain and then avarice blade as you say. Beware that you might feel a bit squishy until you get some sustain with another item, and olaf could counter you badly if he rush more health. You could also when getting back get 2x dorans blade and one ruby crystal before going for statikk shiv. Then you can use ruby crystal to buy warmog later or another item. This is only theorycrafting, I haven't met a olaf yet while the new patch have been released to try out statikk shiv rush against olaf

If you want to lane vs olaf, rushing recursive bow is a great choice because after that, u'll be able to win trades with ur true damage since it only cost 950. Don't go phage cuz b4 u get the item completed u'll be really at a disadv.

renekton can screw over irelia

I think it's silly you put Darius as hardest difficulty for her. Also I wouldn't go so deep into Offense mastery, and she doesn't fall off lategame. Otherwise, cool guide, thanks!

Darius: I think he is a bit tricky, because he can deny you a lot of farm in the early game, and Irelia needs farm to get strong. He will win 1v1 in lvl 6 and u can first start to fight him when you get your first AS speed item so you can use your lifesteal to regen health after a 1v1 fight with him. Offense tree: I only go deep in offense when playing soloQ, because i'm abusing enemies mistakes, and with 21 in offense I will scale harder. In team game i'm using 9/21/0 because the enemy top laner don't make a lot of mistakes and I don't need to be a carry on my team but more a tanky bruiser that is able to take down enemy adc/apc If you compare irelia with her nemesis Jax, she will fall off lategame. But she does not become useless late game and many other top champions also fall off late game, it's just the fact that she is not able to kill enemy adc 1v1 anymore. But thanks a lot for your inputs, i will reconsider it :)

What do you think about the matchup against a Jayce?
2
2 years ago
It took me a while to figure out what to do against him, but once you figured it out he isn't that huge of a problem and u should be able to win your lane. Buy ninja tabi, to prevent his autoattacks harrassing you all the time. Farm safe under turret in early levels, when you are lvl 7-9 you can start trading/killing him. Use Q (minion) > E > W > Ignite > autoattack him until he disengage you with hammer stance "E" then "Q" after him and finish him off. You can use your ulti snipe him while he is running away. The reason why you are able to win the lane and the trades with him is because you have sustain with lifesteal and he doesn't. Hope this answers your questions or else feel free to ask :)

But when he gets a vampiric scepter or bloodthirster, what would you do then? o.o

Or worse^ Blade of Ruined King. You can't have much health since that item is preferably strong any lane. But especially against Irelia since you stack health+dmg and tankiness on her.

i also main as irelia, probably not as good as milkeyR but i've been playing her for about a year now. with most lanes that you cant beat them early game, just farm during that time. wait until you hit around lvl 6 and then fight. jayce honestly cant get a BT during laning phase, if he does, he'll be too weak to fight you 1v1 during laning anyways. q to almost dead minon, w and e and then aa jayce, when he hits you away, just q to him and dont let him up. pussy champs like jayce and teemo harass until you're weak and then fight you, dont let him do that. also, dont be a fool and fight him behind alot of his minion or up coming minion wave. aa his minion until youre favored in minion count.

i know it's 5 months ago, but i will still type the answer here if someone else reads it, then i hope it will be usefull.

Countering Jayce is actually easier then anything else, do exactly what mikeyR wrote to you as an reply, and keep in mind that if you, Q a creep beside Jayce, and reset Your Q. Jayce will go in hammer stance, because he is scared of you where he tries to knock you back so he can escape. but since your Q is ready again, just jump in and kill.

i think jayce is quite an easy lineup. because of this strategy. he just can't run away from you.

Why dont you have ghost in the main summoners and why dont you even mention ghost in the description?
1
2 years ago
Because it sucks on irelia unless you're against a very very few specific champions. And also flash provides a much better utility.
