Hey, this is Rafor, and welcome to my second ever build. Please be easy on me since im still figuring out how to write and make builds, but before you downvote(That is if my build sucked bad enough to do) please tell me why you did, so I can fix it.

I've decided to do my build on Irelia, The Will of the Blades. I've been play her for about 2 weeks no because I didn't know who to get. I was getting bored allitle with the champs I had and took a liking to Irelia. She is a 6300 Assasin and is one of the less seen characters of the League, but after you read this, you should be able to kill any squishy carry that comes in your way.


PROS:

Has good damage early game
Excellent assasin
Passive makes her less vulnerable to CC
Can murder squishies before they know they're dead
Easy to last hit minion with Q
Semi-Tank(ish)
The best part is that she has a cool sword that floats like she has the force


CONS:

Has no escape abilities
Mana hungry early game
Unless fed or semi-fed, damage takes a trip south late game.
Tanks can beat her silly


To me,the pros outway to cons,and they probably do to you too. Now I will start with the actual build.

Irelia
The Will of the Blades;

The Ionians have developed some of the most breathtaking and deadly martial arts on all of Runeterra - just one manifestation of their pursuit of enlightenment. The most remarkable blade style to emerge, however, was the unusual byproduct of foreign intervention. Master Lito was a swordsman whose teachings were sought by ruling classes from nearly every city-state. His art was a highly-guarded secret, but it was said that swords would breathe in his grasp. He withered unexpectedly from a mysterious disease which baffled the brightest of Runeterran physicians. When he died, he left behind Zelos and Irelia, his son and daughter, and a truly unique weapon. Zelos became a sergeant in the Ionian military and left to seek assistance from Demacia immediately prior to Noxus' invasion of Ionia. Irelia, charged with the protection of their home until Zelos returned, was alone when the Noxian forces struck.

The Ionians fought admirably, but soon Ionian blood stained the land beneath the prints of foreign boots. At the Great Stand of the Placidium, Ionians prepared for surrender, but were inspired to maintain their resistance when the young Irelia lifted her father's enormous blade and pledged to hold until her brother returned. In the chaos of the ensuing fight, Irelia was cursed with dark Noxian Necromancy. As her life ebbed, Soraka, the Starchild, made a final attempt to anchor her fading soul. Unwilling to relinquish her home, Irelia rose at the brink of death, and her father's sword lifted in the air alongside her. Irelia rushed back to the fore, unfazed by the blade's sudden animation. The weapon danced around her effortlessly, cutting down Noxians as they gaped in horror. The decimated invaders were forced to retreat from the Placidium. Irelia was appointed Ionia's Captain of the Guard, and when the defense of her homeland moved to the Fields of Justice, so did she.

'The sword flourishes, as though painting with blood.'
- Taken from a Noxian Field Report


Abilities

Bladesurge - Irelia dashes forward to strike her target. If it kills the target, Bladesurge's cooldown refreshes and refunds 35 Mana.
Irelia dashes forward to strike her target, dealing 20/55/90/125/160 (+) physical damage.

If it kills the target, Bladesurge's cooldown refreshes and refunds 35 Mana.
Cost 70/70/70/70/70 Mana
Range:600
This is the skill I main least. You might be thinking, "WTF Rafor? You choose to build her AP, but you main this least." Well to me, during early game your E is way more important because you start off with early game AP, and you need your W for the lifesteal to stay in your lane. I get one point in Q at lvl 4 so you can last hit minions.

Hiten Style - Irelia is skilled in the art of Hiten, passively giving her physical attacks health restoration. Activating Hiten Style gives her physical attacks true damage for a short period.
Passive: Physical Attacks restore 10/14/18/22/26 health.

Active: Irelia's physical attacks deal 15/30/45/60/75 true damage for 6 seconds.
Cost40/40/40/40/40 Mana
Range:20
This is your 3rd most important ability coming behind your E which comes behind your ult. It passively restores health on physical attack(Even on turrets!) and if you combine this with your Zeke's Harbinger and The Bloodthirster it gives you almost UNBEATABLE lifesteal when you have Hiten Style at it's higher levels.
