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.

Pre Game Stuff

Runes:
I prefer to run attk speed/ad reds, Armor yellows, mr blues, and armor pen/attack spd quints. This is because irelia scales really well off of tankiness due to her passive, and attack speed because of Hiten Style.

Masteries:
Honestly this can depend on the matchup you are facing, but i ten to run 9/21 for the extra tankiness it provides. 21/9 is good if you are in a favorable lane, but the tankiness late game is so much more helpful.

Early game

Irelia's early game is pretty weak since her 1 million nerfs, and the new champs can bring so much more to the table in the early stages of the game. I like to play safe and last hit until lvl 6, when Irelia becomes a strong dueler. Last hitting should be relatively simple with her q, there's no excuse for missing minions in lane. She is a very strong pusher after 6, can clear waves with just R. Depending on the matchup you can rush any number of items, I like zephyr a whole lot season 3, you can also justify rushing Blade of the Ruined King, Phage(not as strong as s2), or even tanky items like warmogs/Randuins Omen.

Mid Game

Irelia's mid game is meh, somewhere in the middle of all the champs. Similarly to Jax, the longer the game goes on, the more champs you pass in terms of strength. At this point in the game, you should have two or three items completed, and you build should look something like: Frozen/tri-force, zephyr, and Wits End/Warmogs/Randuins. Make sure you help your team with objectives, but Irelia needs a lot of farm to be useful, so make sure to pick up whatever farm you can during this stage. It is very important to farm on irelia because she scales so well into late game.

Late Game

At this point in the game you are an ABSOLUTE BEAST. See Nien's Irelia vs TSM...so OP. With full items you can dive the squishies and destroy them with Hiten Style. Due to your passive and Zephyr, it is really hard to keep you locked up(up to 50% extra tenacity with your passive), and your sustain with your ult hitting 5 champs is very strong. Don't be afraid to all in at this point as you will most likely not die in the fight, or if you do, it will take a lot of resources.
