Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
So, you want to play aggressive life drain Irelia?
If, you just yield "YESSSS, ffs!!" then you'r at the right place.
Don't get scared by the many item's I've put up there, it's just a little buy order advice.
Your final item's are (in order of finishing):
You might consider buyinginstead of something else when fighting real tough and skilled tank, who you can't destroy other way (but i doubt you will be unable)
Ok. Ok. What's the whole idea of this build:
Look up, and point with your cursor on "Hiten style" icon and read. - yes, this ability is op! - if used correctly- you get 75 true damage to ALL atack for 6 seconds- means then more attacks you do during this time, than more intense you use this ability- that's why wee like attack speed (if you don't have/want crit chance runes I suggest u get attack speed runes). 75 damage is a lot! to get 50 dmg you need to buy B.f Sword- witch costs 1850, so everytime you press "w", you get something like free item that's worth 2775. gold, every 15 seconds for 6 seconds! - now you see why it's worth getting fast, specialy in early game this bonus is enormous.
Up there in the schematics can be some error, so just read this:
You buy Hitten style with your first point so you can heal without using potions after some hunting for first blood.
Then you buy bladesurge to get something reducing distance, you want it to charge your enemy or get escaping ones.
Then you start farming Hitten style as soon as posible to max, stopping only for ulti, and to get one level to Equilibrium strike. (You are a melee damage champion so you need to slow escaping enemies to get kills- just like trynda) - that's you'r second priority is to max Equilibrim after Hiten is already done.
I`ve put those two life draining items to this build, so you increase your life drain during our hp increases and hitten style effect get weaker,- it has solid value, and you need some % value too)
So playing this build is something like playing a combination of Warwick (cuz the intensive life drain) and Tryndamere (cuz you have to play like he- mele damage, slowing escaping ones, gaining crit and mouvment speed items, and charge with whirl... i mean bladesurge)
About summoner spells, this are only tips, not rules, so feel free to pick those that fit you at best, ghost, flash, heal, are also very good for Irelia)
Any tips or suggestions? Write in comment and I'll change it.
