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.
Hi this is my first atempt to make a build guide, I do it for fun. and plz dont for that but for how this build is made.
I can always use some feedback possitive and negative. so plz leave a comment :D
BTW i speel like hell dont hate, if u dont understand the meaning of a sentence plz comment. thx
I made this MB guide since I rly like to play Irelia with this build I just had to share! it is so fun!
The reason i choose these runes is that not many low LVL users have a lot of runes and runepages to build with, therefore i choose to use my own standard AD hero rune build. I know that they are not the best but u get so much damage late game. and the armor helps u in the early game were u will be squishy.
Standard dmg + defense masteries that will get u lots of DMG but leave u with only little defense in early game but will end up as lots of dmg!!!
You can try start with items like cloth armor or long sword if u want wriggle's lantern or Null Magic for ur boots or early spirit visage. But i like to start with boots of speed, for the extra speed that alows u to farm more easily, but it will leave u with less defensive stats.
Then go for a Philosophors Stone as quickly as possibel for the extra gold HP- and manaregen. If u farmed for it get merctreads now. Otherwise get them along with sheen.
When u got the sheen u want to farm as much as possibel so u can get the trinity force as soon as possibel. After trinity u want armor as chain vest and magic resist in form as spirit visage.
The cooldown reduction and 15 % extra healing is perfect for Irelia with her 'W' and Ultimate.
You will get to use the chain vest for Astma's Impaler since Irelia has just got SO much HP, + armor and Critical strike chance.
now i would build for a Hextech Gunblade by starting with pickaxe and working it into Bilgewater. Then go for Hextech revolver and finish it. (note u have to sell Philo to get room for it) Now get Giants belt and make it into Warmog's Armor.
By starting with 'E' u get the abillity to stun / slow ur enemy and propaly get First Blood.
u then want to Max 'W' for the true dmg (not able to counter) and healing. u will then max 'Q' to finish minions faster and getting more DMG and get the cooldown lower.
now max Ultimate and finish with 'E'.
I use ignite and flash because flash is a must have with any champ and because Irelia doesn't need Exhaust because of her 'E'.
Plz dont use this build in ranked games since it is a othe lvl of gameplay and this build is made to have fun playing.
Pros / Cons
+Tanky late game
+High DMG late game
+Lots of healing
+both MR + Armor = more than 50% reduced dmg
+able to stay lain for ages
-Squishy early game
-Low DMG early game (besides the True DMG)
As the top lainer u just want to Farm and Farm, therefore are u vulneable to gangs and thats why many buy wriggles but i think that getting ward is woth more.
When ur jungler Gang notice if ur enemy(s) have ward(s) or wriggles and tell ur jungler.
If he/they have no wards and your jungler can gang with no problem, u will have to notice who has got the most HP (ur 'E' stuns if ur under their HP [%])ur enemy or you, if your enemy has got the most quickly use ur 'Q' followed by 'E' that will give u time to do lots of dmg with ur 'W' and ur jungler can get in on ur enemy. But if u have got the most HP wait for ur jungler 2 engage the gang, dont get to defensive it will call of ur gang and he will probaly go toward his tower, and dont be to agressive that will scare him of unless his jungler is there for a gang.
Use what u want, use all of it if u want, have fun & good luck on the field of justice. :D
plz comment i would like to get some feedback and plz vote!!! thx :D
