This is my Guide for Irelia on early game dps and off-tank at late-game.
The most guys will play her on dps burst all the time but i think with some more hp and resist shes much more Stronger. With the early game Push you can be dominant on lanes for farming your Items and u should survive a 2on1 with Towerport if you need to hold sololane for a jungler :).

Pros / Cons

+ Great burst
+ Good mix of Magic, Physical and Pure damage makes you hard to counter.
+ Mana effective
+ Great assasin early game, good burster mid game, great dpser/off tank late game)
+ Quite team undependant
+ Good health regen even without lifesteal
+ Not that vurneable to CC due to passive
+ Good melee dps that can deal damage even when blinded
+ Thornmail will not hurt you that much :)
+ Good CC

- Cooldown dependant
- Cant focus on 1 thing makes itemisation hard
- Dependable on kills/killsteals

Summoner Spells

: because it is good for conservative runners when I know my ult can't do the whole job as well as a first blood.

: I use Ghost as well because I do build her to be able to take risks, and this way if it goes bad I have an escape as well as being able to chase down enemies.

: Flash is my Favourite Summoner Spell cause it allows you to be aggressiv u want and with a nice Flash u can Escape all the time.

: You should pick Teleport if ur tacking a sololane vs 2 . I find Exhaust more effective because it allows you to chase enemy champions down when necessary or get a advantage against other melees.

Greater Mark of Desolation: this is the best pick for marks and i dont think there are better marks for Irelia.

Greater Seal of Armor: the Extra Armor at lvl 1 / early game is pretty well u could get aome extra magic resist or Life but i think extra Armor is the best choice.

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist: For some extra Magicresist with the armor from the seals you should be able to get everyone down
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction: For Some Extra Cooldownreduction cause Irelia is dealing much dmg by her Skills

Greater Quintessence: For some More Health and Penetration like Glyph and Marks

I Prefer for Irelia a Standard 0:21:9

In The Utiliti-tree u should get the Perseverence and Awareness they are both rly well

In the Defense-tree you should get The Armor / Magicresist and the dodge its Pretty well for survive. Also u should take 4 points in Veteran's Scars for some more Hp and 1 point in Tenacity

If your playing on sololane vs 2 u should take the 1 Point in Spatial Accuracy spell in Utility-tree

Skill Sequence

> > >

Irelia summons 4 spirit blades which she can fling to deal physical damage to enemies they pass through, and she heals for 25% of that damage vs champions and 10% vs minions
(well to farm some minions)

Irelia dashes forward to strike her target, dealing physical damage. This applies on-hit effects. If it kills the target, Bladesurge's cooldown refreshes and refunds 35 Mana.

Irelia pierces her target, dealing magic damage and slowing the target by 60% for few seconds. If the target has a higher health % than Irelia, she stuns the target for the duration instead.

(Passive): Physical attacks restore health.
(Active): Irelia's physical attacks deal additional true damage for 6 seconds.

Its not realy easy to pick the first item but i think with Doran's Shield everything is ok cause i think at start caster are not rly dangerous for Irelia and meeles will get mad with this extra armor and Health.

So on as my Second item i wont get Trinity-Force i think its more important to get enough gold thats why i bought Avarice Blade some Extra gold and crit rate.... GJ.

Now u Should get some more Health with Phage and some more damage Output with Sheen

Before you will get your Trinity you should buy some Boots. Before getting your boots you should consider is the Enemy team More Ap-Damage or more Ad-Damage. Now u should got Mercury's Treads or Ninja Tabi.

Trinity Force time go buy your Trinity and deal amazing damage but care you got most of your defens on attack damage dont underrate enemie caster.

The Next Item on our List is Randuin's Omen a realy nice Item.
advantages? Sure nice opportunity to escape or realy well aktiv spell for harras someone with a 60Sec. Cooldown.
At this time i asked me much time hm too much armor and no magicresist?
but i think i dont need so much magicresist with Irelia so yes the Items still good.

ok next item is Hexdrinker. Hexdrinker is a realy nice Item most of all underrated. its called useless or some of this but i think its one of the best items what u can get its push some more Ad and magic resist and will get you 300 magic-damage absorption.

The Next Item is Banshee's VeilCant talk too much about it will give you some more mana/health and much magicresist. and The best of the Item the Bubble every 30sec. witch blocks 1 spell every 30sec

Our Last Item is Youmuu's Ghostblade now you got some more Cooldownreduction and ArmorPenetration and it got a pretty well aktiv(50%more atkspeed and 20% more movement speed)

Team Fights

First of all my Irelia Guide is a off-Tank guide u got some Hp and resist but ur not the Tank.
Your team should engage with the Tank right behind You u should take out the carrys and get so much focus you can.

If everything is gonna be well they need to go back now its your turn get with Bladesurge right behind of one of them and use your Randuin's Omen u should slow 1-2 of them now your team is nuke them down if Randuin's on cooldown u still got Equilibrium Strike to slow / stun.

If they got your dpsout and u will lose your Fight save your carrys /caster and use ur Randuin's Omen to escape well u should be able to survive with Irelia cause u got Flash, stun, slow and Bladesurge so take care of your team.
