@ Androdriverz
Read update corectly, you cannot stack same items (like 2 hearth of gold), but you can do get 1 phylo and 1 hog and BOTH passives will work as they are different items (read about it in patch notes).

@ yngwie
I start doran's shield everytime i go against AD.
Doran's blade is a VERY stupid thing to do as it gives only 100 hp and you can't get pot, you will be harrased to death, it gives no armor, and no health regen. That 3% lifesteal is completelly useless as your hiten passive heals FAR MORE, and that 10 damage doesn't matter at all as even if you can harrass harder - lack of survivalability will prevent you from trading damage.

@ TheOg Thanks for highlighting that, i created this guide quite long ago, where i used these kind of runes (i use them even now since i got only flad ones) though i believe m.ress/lv are really better and i'm going to update that section accordingly, thanks for question.


About hextech revolver, i won't bother answering it in comment, i will cover it in my guide, i will take a bit more time for clearing your doubts as i will try to test it out.

I'm happy, that I could help somehow. By the way, why did you remove Spirit Visage from build? The nerf isn't too big and spirit visage still buffs your much more nerfed ultimate. I also play Irelia and I find it better than Shurelya's, mostly for magic resist, increased regeneration and in your build you have Randuin's Omen speed debuff (that means you don't really need speed buff). Actually I prefer the old version of your build with mercury, trinity force, spirit visage, wit's end, randuin's omen and lantern (or arma's)... :-)

this seems to be exactly the same as the solomid featured guide for her (the one requiring the author main her at 2000+ elo) except for quints, are you aware of this?

yes i am aware of this, it's chaox. Yes you are right builds are very similar, but in my eyes this setup is one of best and even if build started to look like some other player (geez there are thousands of players), i won't change some item into less effective just for the sake of getting unique build. This is a guide and i'm giving you guys what's in my opinion is best for Irelia and as you see - in solomid, he gives you build and almos nothing more. Here - i take all in depth :)

@ theog
I removed it after irelia natural vamp nerf (vamp from creeps went to 10%) and for cooldown and hp shurelya in my opinion is far superior than this.
Though about wit's end, just now i had ranked game where i literally raped with it and i thing i underrated it a bit too much, it's actually a really viable item.

I will definitely try Shurelya again, then.
I like introducing Banshe to your build, it's great item giving magic resist, when you don't have Wit's End and Spirit Visage.
Actually I think that Atma is good item and sometimes (on tanky dps) even overpowered but imo you don't need that extra 60ad, because you already hit hard with true dmg and trinity force, got armor from Randuin's Omen, for the lower price you got Wit's End which allows you to hit more times (due to attack speed) and gives magic resist, which you don't really have much cause of removing Spirit Visage...

thumbs up a very nice build , 1 thing though, if you are sololaning with irelia vs 2 people ( almost never happens in high rating , i know ) it would be smarter to lvl W instead of the Q-E combo , since irelia is a weak laner untill she gets closer to lvl 6 especially if shes up against ranged sololaners, the W would provide her to stay SO much longer in lane and farm a larger amount of creeps ^^. oh and the wriggle thin i dont like since the jungler probably will have one and it isn´t really your job to do most of the warding so to buy wriggles just because of the 1 ward is a tad silly 2 me... but i guess it´s upp to each individual and playstyle , VERY nice build all in all. thank you and if you disagree with me, proove me wrong ;)

I'm not using wriggle O_o
oh and when going 1v2 it's still better E. WHY? - because they won't let you AA much, and they will probably dive you, an when they dive, the longer the stun, the better. 90% when they dive i am still alive and at least one or both of them dead. Actually if played well, you always survive and get a kill, you gotta stun and then kite then, for example - run to your base size, but not out of tower range, the moment the enemy champion goes through turret, INSTA TURN AROUND AND BFLASH BACK BEHIND HIM AND RUN FROM YOUR TURRET, this way you won't get damaged and opponent will be trapped under turret, if he tries to run to bush next to tower - chase him and kill him with your q, it should be off-cooldown, also you should ignite him. (oh and for 2ppl it's same story, just a bit more kitting, nothing different much). And after you get phylo and sheen, since your level is far higher, at about 6-7, you can 1v2 them EASY most of the time. Unless it's urgot + rumble duo lol - then it's gg.

-Repped and Faved...

You are one of those people who inspired me to buy Irelia, which with no doubt, found her place as my most favorite champion. She never gets boring.

I would like to ask for a permission to translate this guide to another language (With a few changes) and post the translated version on another forum. I will leave you a huge credit ofcourse, clamining that my guide is actually tranlation and leaving a link to here.

In addition, I would like to hear your opinions regarding:

-Banshee's vs Force of Nature. (Move speed and even more HP regeneration have their pluses. Even though Banshee's looks like a somewhat "must" item in tournaments, Chaox, vs aAa, was fed enough to afford either and decided to go for Force of Nature).

-Hexdinger vs Wit's end.

-Shurelia vs Spirit Visage. (Assuming we are building Phillosopher anyway).

-Omen vs Frozen heart.

-Atma vs Wriggles.

-Building shen Early, yet Triforce quite late.

-Good hands vs Preservance. (Even though Preservance' eff won't make that of a hugh impact on Regeneration per sec, that is quite high in this build, people tend to forget it actually boosts Irelia's W as well as the effectiveness of potions).

Answers to such questions would be great additions to this build, as far as I believe, ^^

Thanks for your time!

Sure, you can :) Iwould be glad that my guide would get a translation :D

-Banshee's vs Force of Nature. (Move speed and even more HP regeneration have their pluses. Even though Banshee's looks like a somewhat "must" item in tournaments, Chaox, vs aAa, was fed enough to afford either and decided to go for Force of Nature).


When chosing between them, answer is quite simple - are your teamfights long of short, do they have ****load of cc or just or or two? Banshee is for short teamfights, it works as anti initial burst item, and since irelia's nature is to take her targets quicly while getting focused a lol - banshee really helps to sustain all that burst on you. On the other hand, if teamfights are dragged and there's a lot of poking, and not too much cc - force of nature is the way to go.

-Hexdinger vs Wit's end.


Pretty much same situation as banshee and nature. Though i don't really like hexdrinker myself, but it may be good, i should give it a try once more i guess, it is mainly for surviving burst, it perfectly fits when you need both offense and resistance but you can't afford all just because shortage in gold, it's a good early ietem, especially when fighting versus midgets like annie or karthus.
Wit's end is mage melting weapon, it should be used only when you are quaranted 4 stacks at all time, it's ridiculouslly cheap for what it gives. I would go wit's end over hex everytime, except when enemy's team burst is so high that we can't even or barelly can survive initial burst of opposing team.
Also wit's end works wonders against tanky mage teams like gragas, rize, alistar and such.

-Shurelia vs Spirit Visage. (Assuming we are building Phillosopher anyway).


pretty much everythings the same, shurelya is like upgraded vissage.
for 650 extra gold you get 5% more CDR, speed buff active FOR WHOLE TEAM, it's amazing. 100more hp and you don't have to worry about your mana pool anymore (and with spirit vissage i actually had, because in longer fights my mana bar coulnd't handle much). Though yes spirit vissage does give M.Res, but since i am building quite a lot m.ress from other items, 30 m.res doesn't add much, because the more resist you get, the harder it scales. Actually when weighting everything together with gold, both are viable but since phylo early is almost a must, and for vissage you gotta sell it late, it's quite a waste of gold, so basically if you get shurelya, you get it not for 2200 but for like 1600 at max, whch is same price as vissage, and since price is the same and shurellya is actually better stat-wise, i take shurelya.

-Omen vs Frozen heart.

it's hard to even compare these but in myopinion on irelia omen is far superior to heart, heart gives only armor, and you don't need that much mana, yes i understand that it gives CDR, but there are other items for CDR so basically you are overdoing it. If you build FH, you gotta change all build around it, why i like omen more it's because it not only gives armor but also givs hp, gives more damage from atma's, and it's active is better than atma's passive. Both of these items are for eliminating carries, and randuin active cripples them more, it may be few seconds, but it's just enough time to burst those carries down, frozen hearth is more for mage tanks like chogath, whose are already very tanky from their stats/abilities. Also Omen has that moving slow thingy, i mainly love Randuin for it's amazing active.

-Atma vs Wriggles.
atma - hella lot more armor and damage, also I WOULD NEVER GO ATMA IT I HADN'T TRINITY, the 18% crit chance perfectly sinergises trinity, it's not just for armor, not just for damage, but for crit, trinity + atma + green elixir = really solid crit ratio.
Actually these items are uncomparable, there's just too much difference to compare these xD
Why i don't like life teal - you are burst champion, lifesteal is good only when you are ridiculouslly fed and can pretty much solo 3-4 or even 5 ppl which is actually possible from my own experience, and you gotta sustain yourself a lot when they can't burst you down no matter what, even if they all focus on you.


-Building shen Early, yet Triforce quite late.

VS tanky teams, where bust doesn't help at all. There you can just get wit's end after sheen, maybe even gunblade, don't delay trinity too much though, it's still completelly amazing item even when facing tanks. (unless there ar 4 or 5 of them which is ******ed and it's obviouslly a troll team, but even so, you can then deffinitelly get gunblade, wit's end, madreds, guardian angel, mercury's and spirit vissage (it now does bonus lifesteal), for godmode, but that won't ever happen unless as i said - they are trolling hard).

Good hands vs Preservance.

i found that regen bonus SOOOOOO low (late game it adds like 1hp/5sec) that i thing that deathtimer reduction is way better, in late game where you have to wait 60 sec to respawn, those 6-7 less seconds spent unactive can actually save your nexus from being destroyed, that's what i think.
