This build excells at keeping Irelia alive... something very important when winning is in mind. When you combine the excellent lifesteal from her items with her passive lifesteal from Hiten Style, you can get amazing results. When you factor in the increased healing from Spirit Visage, the amound to regerate per hit can get well over 200. On top of that, with her excellent attack speed, stun, and Ultimate, she can easily turn a fight around and come out of fights with more health than she had when she entered them. When comepared to other champions with similar lifesteal-tankish qualities, such as Twitch, Master Yi, Warwick, or even the dreaded Xin Zhao (or maybe that's just me) she can easily dispose of them by simply waiting until they have more health, then stunning and getting some hits off to turn the tides. If your health never drops below theirs making you unable to stun them, obviously you're winning anyway.

So in the end, Irelia becomes one of the most powerful lifesteal tanks due to her item setup and. more importantly, her passive lifesteal from Hiten Style. With this in mind, she can easily turn fights around and fight even the most powerful champions in the League.
