Not Updated For Current Season
Greetings everyone! My name is shinshana, and this guide is about jungling as Irelia. I would like to first say that yes I know WW is faster and she isn't the best jungler. I personally ave trouble laning as Irelia early game. She can jungle fast and effective however. Irelia is a strong melee tanky dps carry. She is anti most melee and anti tank as hell. She can effectivelt 1v1 anyone in the game if both are fed the same. She is tanky and can HELP initate fights and with her ultimate hitting 5 players plus minions she doesn't die fast.
Pros / Cons
Very strong melee
Fast consistent dmg, can own takes or arriers in seconds
passive helps escape death
hard to lane with easier to jungle
useless if CCed
isn't strong til mid
hard to master
Doesn't like mundo :)
This is what I recommend. It speeds up jungling and adds 40% AS which is very nice additive for mid-late. Damage, armor, or MR. Would effectively work as well.
I hose a setup of 13/0/17. I have a thing about utility. Personally most characters I spec into it. Mana/hp regen, faster speed and CD reduction. I chose Imp smite, grabbed cd reduction in offense, and got as much regen in utility as well as getting move sped and neutral buff.
Sorry about this put I am posting from my phone so no pics here.
First: Grab a cloth armor and 5 HP pots and head to double golem. Pop smite+w+HP pot and take those out. Move to the wraiths and use E+w on the purple one, burst him down then the others. Use a pot during this. Kill wolve and use a pot while running to blue, you will finish your pots and sit at about 70% HP. Then repeat with grabbing red once ur smite is up again. At lvl 6 go for the solo lane gank. You an tower dive with ultimate if used correctly. Teleport to base grab a boots and finish razor.
Next: finish boots
Then: finish MBR
Followed by: Building trinity force. I usually go Zeal>phase>sheen.
Next: Depending on preference. Starks if you feel you need the Life Steal or if ur team is heavy melee, if not get sword of divine.
Then: If Heavy melee get thormail, if heavy caster but no nuke get FoN, if there's an AP nuke get BV
Lastly: Warmogs. I sometimes get this 5th if I'm being super focused.
I generally get smite and teleport, however alot of people hate on tele and get ghost. Flash is effevtive too.
