10.18 EUROPEAN MIDLANE IRELIA + HOW TO FIRST BLOOD

By simplepoetry
INTRODUCTION
Hello guys, EUNE Irelia main playing league from season 0 for fun and ranked games maybe from 2016/2017. I played about 10 000 matches with irelia and with new one half of that. In previous seasons i hit high ranks with Irelia and im the one of the best irelias in the world.

Personally i do not think new Irelia is toplaner anymore, her spells and kit is more aggressive and she has more movement on lane and i think she belongs to mid. Irelia is still destroying toplaners so i am not saying she is unplayable on toplane!)

Excuse me if my guide is not good looking, i just made it for you!) i am always adding some infos here and also excuse me please for low quality videos but my laptop is not working correctly, i just recorded it for mobafire page to show you guys, thank you and enjoy my Irelia guide!)

- if you miss one spell you are losing a chance to win a fight

FIRST BLOOD WITH IRELIA Back to Top
TIPS AND TRICKS

Maybe to you irelia doesn't seem like a hard champion but it is, it needs a time to practice her and learn combos which are best for you. Irelia is beautiful champion with beautiful waveclear, movement control around your lane and damage.

How to do first blood with Irelia?

As you know, you need to have 5 stacks with Irelia to deal bonus magic damage with bigger attack speed.

First step is to slowly freeze your minions on midlane and kill minions because you need to hold your passive. Wait for the second wave and slightly give first minion two hits with your passive, then go behind your minions, and while your opponent will be coming to farm the wave, jump on that minion, you will got level 2 while he is level 1, max E stun him and start combo -

combo Q, AA, AA, AA IGNITE and if he will flash you still have your one Q and flash away from under turret.

They are not expecting ton of damage, you always have 6 seconds to do this! Do not forget to count, good luck!
COMBOS WITH IRELIA Back to Top
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO HOLD 5 PASSIVE STACKS

Irelia combos

to level 6

Q minions - if you can hold your passive you are basically winning laning phase against a ton of champions - with 5 stacks
E, Q, autoattacks (as much as you can), W (holding your stacks plus activating your sheen + dealing a little bit damage), Q again, also you can dodge with your Q jumping on minions around, i always pre hit every minion before starting the fight

E, Q, autoattacks, Q, W


from level 6

this combo - R, Q, E, E, Q, autottack, Q(wait when your sheen/trinity will be ready for stronger Q)

also try to always have 5 stacks before starting the fight

pre-hit one minions, you have Q on level 3 so you can kill him also without sheen, throw E behind you, jump on minion with Q, R on enemy champion, throw E behind enemy champion, Q again, 1-2 autoattacks and he is probably dead

E, R, Q, E, Q, autoattacks, Q, W(if you are under turret taking tower shot with low hp)
ITEMS Back to Top
IRELIA WITH FULL BUILD



- Core item for irelia - damage with Sheen combined with your Q, movement speed from phage, attack speed and cooldown reduction, everything what you need

- Great item giving you attack speed, magic ressist and most importantly healing from passive, which is combined with your passive - you are dealing a huge amount of magic damage and 30% is healing you

- Item against tanky champions, lifesteal, attack speed, slow which you can combine also with wits end

- Item giving you health, slow and most importantly armor and 15% attack speed reduction, great item against your adc or ad midlaner

- Health, magic ressist and more important thing, giving you 30% more received healing

- Item helping Irelia with sustain and armor / magic resist stats

- Great item against champions with heavy sustain
FAQ Back to Top
Why no Tiamat?

Personally i do not like tiamat on my lane, AoE damage from tiamat is killing backline minions on lane, and without minions on lane irelia can't stack and without stacking passive she is not dealing damage that heavy damage. You can kill your backline minions from level 5 Q with Sheen or just with trinity, and front line minions with W hit + Q.



Is this build also lategame?

Of course. This build is mainly mid/lategame. You are offtanky, you have 2-2,5 attack speed, incredible sustain combined with your runes, your passive with wits end passive and lifesteal from items. It is the beautiful synergy of all items in your build. You are dealing heavy magic damage on every hit and you can easily push lanes, solo baron and you can play Irelia for objectives because Irelia always starting to fall off in mid/lategame and its very, very hard to carry games with her.
