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.
Pros / Cons
-Great laning (heal from W/R)
-Can initiate a team fight (Q+W to carry)
-Tank, but still great damage.
-She's not that good on low level games, where you don't have solo lane (you don't get farm)
*If playing well ;P
IONIAN FERVOR (Passive)
Each nearby enemy champion (to a maximum of three) reduces the effectiveness of Crowd Control on Irelia.
- 1 Champion: 10%.
- 2 Champions: 25%.
- 3 Champions: 40%.
- Range: 800.
This passive stacked with Mercury's Treads gives you 61% crowd control reduction in team fights!
(Active): Irelia dashes forward to strike her target, deales physical damage. If it kills the target, Bladesurge's cooldown refreshes and refunds 35 Mana.
- Cost: 70 mana.
- Range: 650.
Cooldown: 14 / 12 / 10 / 8 / 6 seconds.
Physical Damage: 20 / 55 / 90 / 125 / 160 (+1 per attack damage).
This skill is really helpful in killing minions and deals nice damage with your Sheen/Trinity Force.
(Passive): Physical attacks restore health.
(Active): Irelia's physical attacks deal additional true damage for 6 seconds.
- Cost: 40 mana.
- Cooldown: 15 seconds.
Heal: 10 / 14 / 18 / 22 / 26 .
True Damage: 15 / 30 / 45 / 60 / 75.
Enemies will feel that TRUE DAMAGE. Also on-hit heals helps you to stay on lane as long as it possible.
(Active): Irelia pierces her target, deals magic damage and slows the target by 60% for few seconds. If the target has a higher health % than Irelia, she stuns the target for the duration instead.
- Cooldown: 8 seconds.
- Range: 325.
Cost: 50 / 55 / 60 / 65 / 70 mana.
Magic Damage: 80 / 130 / 180 / 230 / 280 (+0.5 per ability power).
Duration: 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds.
So, thats our crowd control skill. Someone is diving you? Stun him.
(Active): Irelia summons 4 spirit blades which she can fling to deal magic damage to enemies they pass through, and she heals for 25% of that damage.
- Cost: 100 mana.
- Range: 1200.
Cooldown: 50 / 40 / 30 seconds.
Magic Damage: 85 / 135 / 185 (+0.4 per ability power OR +0.6 per bonus attack damage).
Finally our ultimate. The new patch is coming (6/22/2011), our ultimate is now healing irelia by 25% of damage dealt to enemies and 10% from minions. It has really short cooldown and pretty nice range to attack our enemies. It also makes you perfect laner, you can easy heal and farm on big minion waves. Beacause of short cooldown you can spam that skill all time.
- Working great on every champions, you can also get away from ganks, and catch your enemies.
- Good spell, especially vs ad.
- +35% movement speed, perfect to get away from ganks, chase or initiate battle.
You can take other spells like , .
greater mark of desolation Greater Mark of Desolation - Armor penetration helps Irelia to take down tankier champs, and also it helps a bit in farming.
Greater Seal of Resilience - More armor for early game, helps you to stay on lane longer.
Greater Glyph of Warding - Magic resist, this same as Greater Seal of Resilience.
greater quintessence of vigor Greater Quintessence of Vigor - Health regen, helping a lot on lane early game.
MY RECOMMENDED ITEMS:
Frozen Heart - Cheap item, works great versus any AD, also gives good cd reduction that allows you to spam your skills more. A bit more mana is always good ;P
Force of Nature - M. Res. + hp regen, and...movement speed, stacked with Trinity Force and masteries givies you +23% ms (12 from trinity force, 3 from masteries, 8 from FoN). Movement speed is perfect to initiate team fight, that is role of irelia.
Banshee's Veil - Situational item, great if you want to engage team fight (slow/stun can't stop you)
Guardian Angel - Second life.
Atma's Impaler + warmogs armor Warmog's Armor - I don't ever build that, but it's good items compostions on irelia. Gives much hp and good amount of damage.
Hexdrinker - Cheap survi/AD item.
Spirit Visage - Cheap early game survi item.
Wit's End - This item is crazy good for only 2k gold, maybe you are a little bit less tanky, but 75 true damage + 42 magic damage + normal AD combined with att speed gives you greaaaat damage.
Backing to base, if you want to back to base, just use your ult to unpush creeps.
Standard harass with ult, try to catch enemy with your e when is full hp or more then you, activate w and r and attack him with normal attacks + ult, if he gets away from your att range, use Q to jump.
Keeping enemy to not farm, after your enemy pushed you, don't let minions come to turret range, just keep and last hit them here:
Drop a ward in one of that points, to make sure you don't get ganked.
Yellow for normal laning.
Green if you are pushing (your enemy is ***** :d).
