Im using 21/9/0 so in defence so in Defence i take NIMBLENESS and i take Criple for my exhaust spell
On lvl 1 i take Bladesurge so i have a good farming and jumping tool and i max it as soon as i cant if i cant take Bladesurge,i take Equlibrium Strike and max it after Bladesurge.Also take
hITEN sTYLE so you get a nice life steal on attack+nice dmg wehn act.
In Early game your combo will be Bladesurge/equlibrium strike.
In Mid game start with Bladesurge/Hiten Style/Equlibrium strike and attack constantly with Transcendent Blades.Becose of Irelia's passive she is very good in team fights or in escapeing
becose if an enemy champion is near her CC's are reduced
For summoner spells i take Flash/Exhaust.
FLASH:Rly good tracing/escaping spell this spell saved me alot of times
Exhaust:rly good for runing and killing some1
For farming just LH minions and you can kill them with Bladesurge it will refresh some of your mana and cd
I start with Dorans Blade and rush for mercury treads.Mercury with your passive is rly great expecily in ranked games.Then i go for Wits end it gives magic ressist and attack speed with good passive to burn mana.After that i go trinity,then Banshes(spell block and and magic resist/hp/mana)then go for guardiran or thornmail your choise and then bloodthirster/black cleaver/Ie depends.
