Irelia S10 Top/Mid Guide

By MikaeraKun
About Champion Back to Top
Abilities





Irelia - The Blade Dancer
Playable Lanes: Top, Mid
Powerspike: Mid-Late Game
Cons: Hard to master, passive dependent
Why Irelia - Brief Introduction Irelia is an Mid-Late game champion able to defeat every and any threat if ahead. Has great outplay potential and her Ultimate Vanguard's Edge makes any champion that wants to escape to suffer more from slow and damage.
Pros and Cons Back to Top
Pros
+ Powerful late game
+ High sustain
+ High mobility
+ Enormous damage
+ Outplay potential
Irelia can be very powerful mid-late game, and you can carry 1v9 games most times with her, doing incredible 1v5 pentas and other stuff. Can demolish most champions with ease and, if she ults more people at once, she can stack her passive pretty quickly.
Cons
- Very easy gankable early
- If you miss Q, you are actually dead in 99% of the cases.
- Unable to escape easily without minion wave
- High skillcap
- Has 2 skillshots that if missed can change outcome to worse
- Without her passive, she is weak
Irelia, unfortunatelly, has very High Skillcap, so most of the people will do bad with her. She can not escape without her flash or suitable minion wave to dash to, so she can get ganked easily. Has 2 skillshots (E,R) that, if missed, can lose the fight.
Abilities Back to Top
PASSIVE
ABILITY
Ionian Fervor (Passive): Irelia gains 1 stack of her passive for every ability that hits enemy champion, or last hitting - killing minions/epic monsters/ with Bladesurge. At full stacks, which is 5, she gains massive attack speed and deals bonus magic damage on hit.
Q
Bladesurge Q : Irelia's Bladesurge makes her able to dash to the opponent/minion and deals physical (+60% AD) damage and heals herself for % of her total AD. It deals bonus damage to minions. Cooldown resets if it kills target or if it consumes Mark.
W
Defiant Dance W : Irelia's Defiant Dance makes her stand still, blades allinged around her and she recieves reduced damage for 50% (+7% per 100AP). Second casting makes her swipe her blades in the direction, dealing physical damage (+50% AD, +45% AP) and increases up to 100% based on channel time.
E
Flawless Duet E : Irelia throws a blade towards the direction, which is there for 3.5s, and she can reactivate it to throw a second blade towards another location, stunning everything in between and marking them. It deals magic damage (+80% AP).
R
Vanguard's Edge R : Irelia launches bunch of blades at the cursors location, and after hitting champion they split and form a spade-shaped perimiter. Initial hit deals magic damage (+70% AP) to all opponents, and opponents that go through those blades recieve magic damage (+70% AP) and are slowed for 90% for 1.5s.

Items Back to Top

Trinity Force

Titanic Hydra

Bloodthirster

Black Cleaver

Sterak's Gage
This is the best build for Irelia. One thing that you can change is Bloodthirster for a Blade of the Ruined King.
Runes Back to Top

PRECISION
Conqueror is best rune for Irelia since you will get those 10 stacks pretty quickly and thus you will heal, alongside with heal from your q and your items, you will heal a lot.
Triumph will restore 12% of your health, which is very useful, actually more useful than any other runes here.
Legend: Alacrity will give Irelia extra attack speed after 5 stacks, which will make her unstoppable. Other alternative here is Legend: Bloodline.
Coup de Grace deals extra damage to opponents with less than 40% of their Health, which means that you'll kill low-health opponents easier.
Other alternative here is Taste of Blood, but I think that Sudden Impact is better, since it gives you +7 lethality for 5s, after dashing to the opponent with your Bladesurge.
Ravenous hunter is, I think, better than any other here since Irelia needs extra heal while engaging opponents, which Ravenous Hunter does.
You shall go like this since this will give you extra attack speed, give some AD and some Armor to sustain more.
Spells Back to Top

SUMMONER SPELLS
-
FLASH: You should always go flash on Irelia, since You can easily escape or get closer to your opponents.
IGNITE: I always go Ignite on Irelia, both on Top and Mid, since it's great for trades and for killing opponents after engage.
TELEPORT: I do not like, and do not recommend Teleport on Irelia, since Ignite can be far far more useful. Some people go Teleport, which can be useful in some situations.
Tips Back to Top
Here are some tips about how to and what to do while playing Irelia:

Never waste Defiant Dance, since you can sometimes survive because of it giving you reduced damage. You don't have to poke anyone with this ability. You can kill low-health running opponents because of it's range, but that's it.

Always throw Ultimate before Flawless Duet and remember to Dash and consume that mark from Ultimate.
About me Back to Top
My name is Mika. I played League of Legends since Season 5, in which I ended up being Platinum I on the account i unfortunatelly lost, since just after Season 6 started, I stopped playing League because of Personal stuff. After some years, Season 9 to be exact, I came back to playing League.
My first champion, which I always played a lot, was, a surprise, Pantheon. I got to around 100k mastery points on old Pantheon, and another 100k on the new, post-rework Pantheon. That account is now, unfortunatelly, perma banned but that's another story.
Other champions I love to play are Irelia, Swain, Lucian, Soraka, Aatrox, etc...
