[10.10] The ULTIMATE Diamond Irelia Top Lane guide.

By Circas
Hey guys!

Circas here and I have been playing league since season 1 and have been playing Irelia since season 2. I have peaked Diamond 1 playing Irelia top lane.

If you want to embark on this journey of playing Irelia just know it is not an easy one. Irelia is one of the hardest champs to play in the game because you need to have good mechanics, good macro, and just honestly need to be a well rounded player. You need to know match ups like the back of your hand so you know how you can probably abuse each match up. You need to play a lot of games with Irelia to get a grasp on her so don't expect to just pick her up and do well instantly.

However if you do learn Irelia and you do pull off a big out play it is the most rewarding feeling in League of Legends.

I love this champion and I really hope this guide helps you to understand her better because I put a lot of thought into this and really want to help people succeed.

If you have any questions and want to contact me or if you want to watch live game play here are a few links!

Youtube match ups will also be coming soon.




Now you will read a lot of different things about what items Irelia should always build and this and that and I honestly think everyone is wrong.

People need to realize that Irelia is a high skill cap mobile champion that has a lot of room for out playing people and believe it or not can also have versatility and her build path. Most of the time I am going the core 3 items of BOTRK, Wit's End, and Black Cleaver. However it doesn't mean that Trinity is always useless, or you can never go Death's Dance for a drain tank build. I just build accordingly to the people I am playing against and play to the win condition of the role that I need to full fill for my team.

I really don't believe in all these guides that I read where people always try to shoe horn others into one specific build path. You need to know when you have to switch up your build and I hope I clarify that enough for people in the build section.
Match ups
So big disclaimer, these are my thoughts on Irelia match ups given MY skill set in Diamond 1 against other Diamond players. You may disagree with some that is fine but you need to remember that there are some match ups that I haven't had the opportunity of playing at all or have very little data on.

I took a very long time picking my brain going through all the match ups I possibly could so if you are struggling and can;t figure out how to win certain match ups maybe try to catch a stream or submit some game play to me.
