Greater Mark of Attack Damage x9
Greater Seal of Armor x9
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist x9
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed x3



greater mark of desolation x9
Greater Seal of Armor x9
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist x9
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage x3

2 viable rune pages for Irelia, recommend the 1st one. You can mix them up if you want, I just didn't want to post every single possible combination, ya know? For Blind Pick it might be better to have Greater Glyph of Magic Resist rather than Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist because you might be against someone like Rumble without realizing. As for the marks, it depends on how you prefer to play. greater mark of desolation = better late-game damage. Greater Mark of Attack Damage = better farming

Good farming = Good late-game. Good farming with ArPen = Even better late-game.

Oh, and the flat AD quints are better for farming and do more damage than movement speed ( ... Obviously ), but the movement speed is better in late-game because you'll have much higher AD and 8 more won't matter at all and she needs to be able to get in range for Bladesurge.

I usually go Attack speed quints on her and armor pen reds, are the move speed quints more viable on her?

She has built in true damage...Why would you take armor pen? To me that's a bit pointless Hyogetaki.

The attack speed makes sense, the more AS she has the more attacks with haiten style up you get.

I use Flat AD marks+Quints with armor seals+mr glyphs.

Bottom line if you are unsure of who you're facing in a lane it gives you a balanced defense without sacrificing additional rune pages.

Armor pen makes plenty of sense. She is constantly doing physical damage in addition to her true damage by just autoattacking.

I use AD marks too because I run a generic page that's shared with other bruisers, but calling it pointless is a bit much.
hi embracing. yes i play ff14 now.

I think it's just right. As it is in lane a majority of your trading with an enemy will be while using hatien style, using additional armor pen is pointless. Attack speed would be more beneficial overall rather than Arp. Do you build brutalizer on Irelia? Or get LW? I don't, and that's because (specifically) on Irelia, stacking armor pen is useless. She's a bruiser who specializes in penetrating an enemy team's front line to focus down their carries. Last I checked the most armor a carry gets is once they get GA. An enemy stacking armor against you in lane? Fine, doesn;t bother you, you keep farming because you're Irelia. Or you simply poke them down and go for the kill or force them from lane when appropriate. I stand by my opinion that ArP on Irelia is basically useless.

I may play Irelia differently than you though.

I get last whisper occasionally


But ArPen marks are kinda stupid
I agree 100% with Moon's runes.

I usually go for trinity+GA+Wit's End as core. MS quints make sense, (mobility sooo OP) I don't own MR per level, or HP regen quints though D:.
