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.
Ive made this build to try and combine all the stats that make this champ good. She needs a well ballenced AP/AS/AD to own the field.
Pros: Shes strong early in game.
Passive CC reduction
Cons: No true escape
Kinda hard to play at first
Does'nt fly on her blades like i think she should.
Your Q ability is mainly for beginning a fight. Or chasing down the runners.
Her W ability gives her live steal, but with a melee champ whats better then more live steal aslong as you can get your AS and dmg as well.
Your E Ability is a slow/stun if ur lower life then the champ. Its also nice when tryin to escape. Or if you wanna show off and destroy an enemy champ when he thinks hes got the kill on you.
Your R ability u should save for team fights or when champs want to run seeing Irelia has enough damage to take on a champ with out it.
Early game she is a powerful champ so you should try and lane with another champ who is also decent in power or a slow/stun. I.E. Sion, Olaf, Panth, Trynd. ETC. If you can get first blood then u should go and get part of your boots or stay in lane if you choose.
Mid game you should have your Lichbane or atleast most of it. By this time u should be setting up ganks in either mid or in any lane that is. Irelia is a nuker for sure so try to make your aim for weaker champs. Stay away from tanks in team fights. For ryze, teemo and almost all other squishies will melt ur face if u leave them alone.
Late game is when you shine the most. Your very strong and having a nice size health pool. So tower killing should be easy enough and most champs wont stand a chance even if you dive on them. If your getting focused alot in fight you can ajust your build accordingly. Such as going for a GA and Veil.
Like most mana using melee characters. Your always out of mana -_-. So id say going for Golem and def lizzard is not going to hurt you. But dont be like most noobs and go off alone and jungle when other things are being done. For irelia mia from team fights means your team will usually fail.
***Updates coming as i learn more***
This is my first build i put out so all comments are welcome. Inless your being rude. Then no one likes yous anyway..>.>
