Okay, I'm gonna say it, I'm pretty much a noob, and I may not know ****, but am I the only one who feel like Irelia should get a slight buff?

I've been maining her for some time now, and I honestly never win my top lane, either I get mega countered, or I'm too aggressive and end up dying, you name it.
So, if she were to get buffed, then how? IMO, lessen the cooldowns on her, the Q has ridiculous CD (14 seconds wtf) in early game.

And yeah, maybe I'm just using her wrong... so if I am, got any suggestions on how to use her? I've read literally 3 guides and still lose :(

Be passive until level 5-6.

Then proceed to rape face with W > AA > Q > AA.

I too struggled when I first started playing her mate, until I made the realization that I didn't have to win my lane, to win the game

The thing with Irelia is that you actually start fairly weak sauce, most tops 1-5 will out trade you easily, start passively and if they try to force fights just E and retreat, don't push as you have no reliable escape mechanism and pick up last hits where you can, if your lane gets pushed this plays into your hands perfectly, Irelia is superb at last hitting under her tower and with her Q + E, can assist in any love the jungler throws your way

Once you hit 5-6 your W will be nicely leveled and you'll be able to start trading safe in the knowledge that your ult and W will top you up afterwards, you'll now start dominating your lane and once that happens assuming you farm and build well, you'll be scary as hell late game, latching onto and blowing up carries with ease

Irelia's whole kit is broken, wich is the reason she'll never be balanced. Either she'll be nerfed so hard she goes back into oblivion, either she gets buffed and she will become The Queen Of Solotop once again. I don't remember ever seing her as ''balanced'' as she is right now.

I know one of Riot's biggest staff hate her (Morello if my memory is correct) too. It was in one of his post on the forum. He was explaining people why he was glad Irelia was getting nerfed, and about how her overall kit was way too strong, etc etc etc

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.
