Hello there everybody. My name is patriot1907 i play on EU Nordic & East and welcome to my İrelia in depth guide. İrelia is my favourite champion since she came out that's why i decided to get down and write a guide about her. She is fun to play but difficult to master. This guide is both for rookies and experts. Everything about İrelia and general information about her gameplay will be covered here and if there is anything missing just let me know. Have fun reading and vote for me if you like it.

I get Greater Mark of Desolation because it's really the only beneficial runes for Irelia, you could get magic penetration but the bulk of your damage is AD so these are optimal pick.

I get Greater Seal of Resilience because flat armor is just so nice early game for many reasons. It helps against AD harassment, makes minions do almost no damage to you, and gives some extra defense against turrets.

I get Greater Glyph of Warding because they preform amazing against AP harassers and cut down close to 15 of there damage on spells. It's great for staying in lane.

The Mercury Treads give you great CC reduction and resistances early game. They are also good to have because of how vulnerable Irelia is to CC. You could go swift boots but the Trinity Force gives her a good amount of speed later on.

The Trinity Force is one of the best, if not THE BEST item for Irelia. The sheen proc combined with the slow is such a great combo. The fact that it also provides health, mana, AP, AD, AS, AND Crit chance, is too perfect for her as a minimal value of each is what she needs early. Try to time your procs so you get 2 procs off of your ultimate, because yes, each dagger you throw has the potential to provide a sheen proc for 120% of your AD.

its give 920 health+30 health per 5 sec you need this verry much on late game.

This item provides a lot of health regeneration combined with Hiten Style to really see them numbers rolling I would say take this when the enemy team does not have a lot of crowd control effects.

Shurelya's Reverie is a very underestimated item but it is actually really great. It has cooldown reduction, health regen, and health.

For your last item you can either get Guardian Angel or Randuin's Omen . I normally go with the Guardian Angel because I'm almost always legendary and the enemies are out to get me, the extra live is nice, plus all around stat boosts.
