Threats & Synergies
Once akali hits 6, she will one shot you incredibly quickly. Try and catch her out pre-6, especially around level 3-5.
Anivia is broken. Dodge.
This is a pretty difficult lane because of her high damage and CC, however, you can melt her pretty quickly with your 5 stack if you successfully catch her out, and a jungle gank or 2 can put her far behind.
Her W and raw damage can be really annoying for you to deal with, try and play safe early and wait for a jungle gank.
Ever since Ahri was buffed to be able to cancel dashes, it has become far more difficult for Irelia to win this lane. Your main kill opportunities are around level 3-6
Not the worst matchup, he's super squishy so once his cage is down you should be able to freely E + Q to him and auto him to death.
Ignite basically ends vlad, use it before he enters his invulnerability state

- Q doesn't do a lot of damage once mid-game passes as you aren't building AD anymore

- Squishier than the standard Irelia build (have to play safer)
- Might get reported if you feed
It seems to, however, you MUST win lane. If you don't you will fall behind very quickly and become a cannon minion. Here's an example.
Because of this, AP Irelia is very volatile and very difficult to use. However, when it works it is far more fun than standard Irelia, especially when you casually delete 3 people on their team with your Ult.
Thanks to BORK, lane is not as difficult as you'd think as BORK works really well on Irelia and is basically a core item for her at all times.
Hope you enjoyed this guide! I will be updating it frequently along with my other one. Good luck on the rift.
