Introduction

This is an odd Irelia build with a great explanation to it. You may look at it and think, wait I would use this build for the likes of ezreal. Think again, this is one of the most powerful Irelia builds ever.


Guide Top

LANING PHASE

You want to have a tank in your lane, preferably one with a high damage output, like olaf. You want to avoid a lane with two ranged champions because they can harass you and this is the worst thing that can happen to Irelia. You want your tank to draw the enemies towards him so you can deal damage without taking it.


Guide Top

OUT OF LANE

You should never be scared of going into fights, Irelia has extremely high burst damage and with lifesteal from her bloodthirster later on you are going to gain health rather than lose it. In teamfights you are almost guaranteed a kill on those pesky escaping enemies with your ulti, it deals high damage and at range so you don't have to worry about being killed by that high damage melee like yourself. Later on in the game she is a great pusher and shreds through turrets, she is a carry at best.

Summoner Spells

Flash
Helps because she has no slow, stun etc. So no escape abilities
Ignite
This is a matter of choice, if you like choose heal if you think she is to squishy early on.

Pros / Cons

Pros:

She is a great dueler
Can 1v1 with low health and come out with more
High burst damage
Really easy to last hit, most enemies don't get away.

Cons
Hard to come back from a bad start.
Needs a tank in lane, or someone who can lure them towards her.
Hard to play against people who harass.
Easily ganked.
Teemo in lane.

WHY IS THIS BUILD SO... NOT IRELIA?

Well, I tried it one game and I was so powerful. I didn't think she would be so good with it myself and it was like I was playing a whole new champion. I have used it so many times ever since that game. Do not get my exact build after the bloodthirster, mix it up and try to counter the enemy team as much as possible, maybe switch out your last whisper for a good old madreds against Malphite with 4k health?
