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.
Pro's and Con's
-sh1ts out dmg when activate w
- gap closer (q)
-recover-> get hp back : passive from w + ult
-nice dmg for tank
-awesome movement speed
-farming should be easy
-you can jungle with her
-needs quite some farm to get strong
-early game-> squishy
-and you not always get stun: either stun or slow
I always pickbecause it is a great escape tool.
is awesome for map controll, dragons, barons, counter ganks, ganks and laning phase.
I pick when i think the enemy solo top will bring me in trouble in the early game.
When i think i can outlane my enemy solo top; im going for exhaust.
You can also pick or on Irelia.
My runes are based on late-game advantage, since that is what counts.
Furthermore some early flat armor helps vs minnion dmg or basic attacks that are used often in early game.
Starting off withallows me to hit and run farm also vs ranged player. in addition you can escape ganks easier and are a must-have vs junglers like udyr and rammus.
I get for the early armor ,lifesteal-> lane sustain and a free ward.
In late game you can get Bloodthirster for it.
makes you quite tanky and gives some nice heal improvements.
I later change that to a banshee's.
If the enemyteam has mostly AD champs i get instead of
i never skill my spells in the same order. but generally i say:> > > make sure you put a early point in E so you can gank with the help of your jungler.
skilling depends on the enemy team/player and on the situation you are in.
as you see jungling on irelia is possible.
anyways i recommend to get solo top for irelia if possible. becouse she needs the farm..
Focus the squishy carries: AD and AP carries
you want to get a red elixier and a red buff before teamfights!!!
since you are tanky you can take the dmg for your team and weak down their carries!
Note: sometimes its ok to die, when the enemy team wastes much cooldowns/ults/summ. spells on you.
you should just hit and run farm with your boots and here and there use your Q to last hit.
YOUR ULT is also nice to farm waves quickly in case of pushing, since it has a short cooldown.
when you got your wrigglers farming should be NP
How to use your combo.
This Chapter will explain a 1v1 .
First you use your stun/slow E spell.
Now activate Hiten-Style your W. Activated you will sh1t out "tons of dmg" (quoted here from phreak lol). when you reach like half health use your ult to catch up with HP.
when he turns back to run your E should be about to be up again. close the gap with your Q followed by a E and kill him.
Additionally here are some jukes:
Note that this is my first guide ever and i didnt knew how to create this guides before.
I hope you could have learned atleast something :)
