Introduction

Irelia is one of the best late game champs in the game. If you are able to farm well, you'll bring hell to the enemy's and eventually snowball to win the game.


Guide Top

Runes

The Marks help you last hit better, as well as, hit a little harder against other champs.
The Seals is basic armor to withstand physical damage at a certain degree, it will allow you to take hits at a lesser degree.
The Glyphs are basic for taking less damage from magic abilities.
The first set of Quints will allow you to scale better off your hiten strike(w) to get more hits off.
The second set of Quints if you decide to use these will help you evade ganks and abilities more often.

Items

This is your basic Irelia build, HOG and Philo will help your gold count for more viable items. Once you have phage you are able to chase down and take more hits, as well as, trade hits.
Once Tri-Force is made you are very strong and can start smashing your enemy's.
The tanky items help you absorb hits mid to late game, depending on what the other team has champ wise will help you choose between the tanky items.

Skill Sequence

Starting with q will allow you to safely farm and take less hits.
W is your main damage dealing ability and you must max this first.
E is there for utility, to help you get more hits off from your auto attacks with W. It also helps you escape ganks by stunning or slowing them. I suggest you smartcast this ability, it will help immensely.

Summoner Spells

Flash is a must on this champ and almost all champs, to escape or catch up to champions, ghost could be used but it is not recommended.
Ignite helps you secure that kill, because sometimes you can't finish someone off because all your abilities are on cooldown. Teleport could also be used to help with objectives and to out farm your lane.

Summary

Irelia is a great and easy champ to play if you want to carry a team, if you so happen to get countered make sure you farm substantially, and you'll be able to win your lane.
