How to play with this build.

From levels 1-6 play very defensively and farm as many minions as possible. At 6 recall and buy tier 1 boots and a vapuric sceptre. at this point you can make efficient trades with your laning opponent and even if you lose the trade, you are bound to have more sustain than your opponent especially since irelia has no huge mana issues. In mid game, your goal is to get your tri force and warmongs armour, do this buy passively farming and you can join in team fights and jump on their AD carry with your transcendent blade and pick up a few kills with your "leeching" abilities. After achieving these 4 items i would say for solo queue, you will be unkillable. Your last 2 items are not necessary however provide extra damage and tankiness, please bare in mind if they have double Ap lanes then build an early force of nature and skip the guardian angel from your build, i do not build wits end on irelia as I do believe all of the above items when synergized are more effective. Irelias goal in team fights is to come in slightly late and jump on important targets such as the mid and the AD carry, this is also good because if you’re fed they are likely to run away hence splitting from each over which provides many won team fights, I have uses this build several times in Solo Queue and have literally "One Man Carried" my team the win, hence doing this every match is impossible as certain team comps are good at stopping this from happening. If they are smart they will target the tank, and give your squishes to do do extra damage, so it is a win win Irelia is an mid to late game champion and it probably the best character in the game at killing targets that stays at the back of teamfights, Maxing Q over E is beneficial becauce of the amazing cooldwon reduction you get after each point.
