Runes

This rune choice makes Irelia extremely durable but also extremely dangerous. She can take a lot of damage because of the large health pool you receive but also can take down foes with a high amount of attack damage.

Summoner Spells

Exhaust gives Irelia a great way of slowing down escaping or fleeing enemies. Exhaust works well with Equilibrium Strike to greatly hinder an enemies mobility. Flash gives a great way of escaping with the quick movement boost it gives you. Also with Bladesurge you can quickly dash twice if needed to make a close escape.

Masteries

The items I advise give Irelia a large health pool and a lot of damage output. These masteries help to make her more durable and give her more sustain and ability to last in fights. This durability from masteries will make Irelia much more of a threat because of the durability.

Skill Sequence

I prioritize maxing Bladesurge first. This gives Irelia a good way to dash to targets and deal some really quick damage. This makes Irelia more of a threat early game because of her damage potential to counteract her more squishy early game. Second I maximize Hiten Style. This is not a jungling build but the health regen per hit and the true damage it gives prove to be very beneficial. The health gives her more sustain and allows her to stay in lane longer and be durable. I grab Equilibrium Strike at level 3 for the sake of having the slow. This build gives Irelia's basic attacks heavy hits making the slow beneficial to have but not her main damage.
