[10.23] Irelia Mid and match-up guide for preseason

By ItzJavAgain
Alacrity runes
I wanted to say this on the notes of the runes but they are not working for me so i explain here,the thing with the new items is that,with Trinity as mythic,because of its mythic passive i end Up most ganes hitting 2.21 AS with fully charged passive,without Witt's end on the build,if you build Witt's end,and use alacrity,you will most likely end hitting 2.50 AS ( i couldnt try this yet will be trying soon)meaning you are wasting a lot of AS since It is capped at 2.50 unless you use lethal tempo which is not the case on Irelia,i will also try soon how much AS you get with alacrity but without Witt's,so keep in mind when you using alacrity and building Witt's with Trinity you will be probably wasting AS
Work in Progress
I have not been able to test many new items,due to my exams i am still trying to test many of the changes like the ones in the runes with alacrity,i will slowly update the Guide including many of the new items.I Will also be adding more match-ups and Guide for them as soon as i cam
Rune choice
Conqueror is still the best rune by far for Irelia,still,she's one of the champs that has been affected the most by the nerfs to healing of the rune 15-> 9% and although the extra AD is good is not a good trade by any means

You want to take Triumph as It is the best rune of his group,It is so useful,that healing on kill can really Mark a difference both in lane and in TF

Here is where It gets interesting,almost any rune of Alacrity Bloodline and Tenacity is viable here,however,for the reason i exposed before, Alacrity is not optimal if you are building Trinity as mythic(things change if you build shieldbow) Tenacity is a good choice against heavy cc teams,but in the other cases Bloodline is the optimal,even thought life-steal went from 12 to 9%,It is still a good rune

At last,It is between Coup de Grace and Last Stand personally,i preffer Coup de Grace,as i find It more useful at the state the game is right now,but Last stand is still a good choice,its not like Irelia is Tryndamere,but still you can get quite damage out of the rune

For the secondary runes you go either Inspiration with Time Warp Tonic and Biscuit Delivery or my favourite go Domination with Sudden Impact and Ravenous Hunter despite nerfs to Ravenous Hunter It is still a really good rune,i preffer Domination because It is better for late game as well as better overall,Inspiration is better for top since It gives more sustain and is good in top because It takes longer to come from base so the less you back the less you lose and thats why sustain is important,in mid however,lane is shorter and you reach your lane before so backing doesnt make you lose so much time
Item choice
WARNING:New items have just been released,everyone is still trying new builds and many items are likely to get changes like some already have like Eclipse so far,this is what we have

As first ítem you can go either Trinity Force Immortal Shieldbow or even Blade of the Ruined will take BOTRK when you are under heavy poke in lane but you are not building shieldbow,since Trinity doesn't give any Life steal,you miss some sustain in lane,building Vampiric Scepter to build It into BOTRK gives you a very nice sustain to help you in lane against those annoying poke champ in mid like Xerath

If not you can go either go Trinity Force or Immortal Shieldbow main difference is that shieldbow gives lifesteal and is usually followed by a Guinsoo if you follow that kind of build,this build has stronger Life steal in teamfights and makes you last longer and is strong in long 1v1. Trinity build has better scaling,and its mythic passive is more useful than the one from shieldbow

Now with that decided,lets get on the rest of items:

From Immortal Shieldbow you'll be building Guinsoo's Rageblade as second and from there,mostly more on-Hit damage items like Blade of the Ruined King or Wit's End,or items like Death's Dance or Guardian Angel,basically more Hp and resistances to survive the one-shoot items that are everywhere now. Ravenous Hydra is also a good item im building in both items as It gives a lot of Lifesteal,AD and Ability Haste and also its passive is useful(It was so long since i last built Tiamat and It feels really good to have It back on the build :) Note: Sterak's Gage is not compatible with this build as It and Shieldbow share same lifeline passive meaning only 1 of the 2 will activate

On the Trinity Forcebuild,you'll be building Blade of the Ruined King and from there,you can choose between Ravenous Hydra which is what im building right now or you can build Death's Dance is still a very good item against AD burst,or even Wit's End against heavy AP,as 4th item for me Sterak's Gage is a must buy as It gives some healing but most importanly anti-burst with extra HP and its shield from passive which is too important to ignore right now.As last you can build Guardian Angel if you are very important for your team or any of the previous items (Death dance,Wit's....) That you didnt buy as 3rd item

In both builds you will be looking for the Elixir of Wrath over the Elixir of Iron unless they have many CC
Keep in mind all of this will change as better or more efficient builds are created and items are changed by Riot
Hope you liked the guide,Will keep updating it,now go get some Q reset
