IntroductionWhat do you think Irelia is? OP............ probably, but only in skilled hands.
She is my mainchamp also after beeing nerfed so hard and I am still able to crush anyone top.
AS Irelia its ur main goal to get the important targets of the fight. That means that u should be tanky but with damage output to get their strong AD`s and AP`s.
MasteriesI use the 9/21/0 mastery build as i want my self to be able to take some damage but also being able to win 1 vs 1 situations. It is probably the best. You can go for 21/9/0 but I prefer the tanky way.
RunesIrelias W spell gives her good sustain and truedmg for a couple of seconds. So u can just go for attack speed reds and AD Quints to get the most damage output. Irelias Q spell lets her lasthit so easy that more AD early on isnt needed. I think Armor and MR is clear. U can take like scaling Health Yellows, but only vs a Rumble or Morde.
I do use Flash ignite to have that survive ability + getting some kills early on.
Other good summoners would be Heal/ Teleport/ and Exhaus if there is no on ur team.
Passive: Ionian Fervor
Each nearby enemy champion (to a maximum of three) reduces the effectiveness of Crowd Control on Irelia.1 Champion: 10%2 Champions: 25%3 Champions: 40%
Irelias Passive is one of the few superman passives in LoL. Tenacity reduction(Tenacity= lower effect of CC) ist realy good! And this passives allows u for ex. to walk out of a Galio Ult before its explodes it also helpes emensly to jump at the enemy Carry without getting stoped through CC.
Irelia dashes forward to strike her target for 20/50/80/110/140 (+1 per Attack Damage). If it kills the target, Bladesurge's cooldown refreshes and refunds 35 Mana.
Cooldown 14 / 12 / 10 / 8 / 6 seconds
Cost 60/65/70/75/80 mana
Irelias Q is really strong either. Early on its good for lasthitting and escaping ganks. And later in the game, when u put some points in it u are able to one shot Casterminions with it. All in all ur main utility spell. Max this second unless u nedd the CC from e.
W: Hiten Style
Irelia is skilled in the art of Hiten, passively giving her physical attacks 5/7/9/11/13 health restoration. Activating Hiten Style adds 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75 true damage to her physical attacks for 6 seconds and gives her physical attacks 10/14/18/22/26 health restoration.
Cooldown 15 seconds
Cost 40 mana
The W spell is one of the reason why Irelia was/is concidered OP. It gives u so much damage and sustain in lane that u have to max this for a good laning phase. It has been nerfed pretty hard tho but its still amazing.
E: Equilibrium Strike
Irelia's attack balances the scales, dealing 80 / 130 / 180 / 230 / 280 (+50% of ability power) damage and slowing the target by 60% for 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds. However, if the target has a higher Health % than Irelia, then the blow stuns the target instead.
Cooldown 8 seconds
Cost 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 / 70 mana
Her E is a bit tricky if u got more health then ur target u will slow it. If ur target has more health it will be stuned. Use it wisly in trades or for some turnarrounds under ur tower ;)
R: Transcendent Blades
Irelia summons 4 spirit blades that she can fling to deal 80/120/160 (+60 of attack damage) (+50% of ability power) physical damage to enemies they pass through. She heals for 25% of that damage against champions and 10% against minions.
Cooldown 70/60/50 seconds
Cost 100 mana
Her Ult is also realy nice either for wave clearing or fighting it will sustain u and do lots of damage.
Early GameYour early game goal should be a high CS cause this will make u win the lane and push the tower. U allways have to decide if u follow ur roaming opponent or if u just push the tower. I dont like getting GP 10 items on Irelia cause i often look for fight due to Irelias early strenght.
Mid GameMid Game is the point where teamfighting starts. If u did well u will have finished boots a Phage and Wit`s end or just ur Triforce. Those Items give u strong power and u should be able to get some kills. BUT keep in mind that u dont have to be in each small fight if u can get a tower while ur team is fighting bot lane, then get it!
Late GameEnd game is where u and your AD carry are super strong. So if they focus u, You can clean them up but i ur AD is getting focused jump on theirs and kill him.
KEEP IN MIND: In Late Game, the AD carry will be the strongest champ if they know whow to position it is GG. So save yours and get theirs!!! And also beaware of the fact that Endgame means that a new game begins so its not important how fed u all were when everyone is fullbuild. The Team with better comp and less mistakes will win in Endgame.
Team FightsUr main goal is GET THE CARRIES AP OR AD and save yours. But dont just jum in like a tard look for a good moment and hope that u get a jungler or suport who can engage for u.
Final CommentsNow i just want to thank u people to read this and i want to say Irelia is not OP she needs skill to play so BETTER DON`T NERF Irelia!!! :)
