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.
This is the build that I've been playing a bit with, and I'm not saying it's the best or anything like that. But I myself honestly hate playing a melee champion. When you're strongest attack is simply just attacking, that's when the game gets a bit too pointless. It's kind of like, uuuh maybe I'll crit or look at how fast I can auto-attack ! o.O No I better like the use of skills (so aptly called).
Yes I took Flash! reason? Well I am a flash-o-holic, and from experience I can say that ghost rarely lets you escape where you couldn't have anyway in team fights, and it might let you get away from ganks etc, but in a whole, flashing out of damage just makes more sense to me, or flashing to tell some "I gotcha" is just a lot more fun.
Ignite: Well though she has her ultimate, and she can close in with her Q, it still really annoys me how often people get away behind turrets etc, when an ignite could so easily have killed them. More kills = more money = even more kills = happy player.
I don't feel like there is a lot to be said. I obviously play her as a hybrid and I don't like full offense builds, and if you need the defence.. Well put a rylai's in or use your ******** zhonya's?! or Just stop jumping into the middle of every1. Irelia isn't OP, you actually have to use your brains to play her, not like mordekaiser *eyeroll*
Mark: Well you know people are gonna have some kind of defense for you cause every1 hates to be bursted down, so get the magic pen runes, they are your friends.
Glyph: CD reduction is so wonderful, which is why I have a lot in my item build aswell. Seriously, when you play her like this, and you start to see you skills being available all the time, you won't regret the choice. It sucks chasing someone down and thinking "I COULD HAVE HAD HIM IF Q WASN'T ON F****ing COOLDOWN!" - Well now you can have him!
Seals: Health, It might not be the best in everyones mind, but she is as squishy as Akali, but has no defence mechanisms, so that extra health really helps you out, and it gives you such a laugh to survive with 100hp when you know your runes saved you (:
A few tips:
- You don't have to use my build in the order that I do, just make sure to get Q up with you AD items and your E up with your AP items, instead of starting out with AD items and maxing E...
- Don't be a hero. She can't survive ganking any other way than avoiding it, and she can't survive intiating a fight. Use your brain and suprise your enemies.
- With this build, I would recommend, as long as you have long CD's, use brushes etc to your advantage, don't auto attack a champion with your skills on CD.
This is my first build I've made in here, and I've only had a few games with Irelia, so be constructive please.. And I am gonna add more to items and playstyle etc if the interest is there. Obviously if every1 hates the build, I'll wont waste more time on it.
Roger and out (:
