Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
If you're about to lane against two champion it's pretty much recommended to go 9-21-0 for high suvivabilty. This masteries are also good for whatever build you make with her. A lot of attack speed from masteries like Alacrityand Ardoris very good with Hiten Strike early game. Also Nimblenessgive a very good bonus movement speed in team fight.
Equilbrium strike first:
-Can save your *** against any champion that try to dive you early game, good synchronize with Hiten Strike at level 2 for keep pushing minions healing at the same time and prevent from easy kill 2v1.
Hiten Strike Max:
-Gave an high survivability early game and make you able to kill any kind of champion at level 5 (3 pts in Hiten Strike)
Then max Equilibrium Strike:
-Increased stun duration can counter easily but also can give you easy kill when you are higher level then your opponent around level 8-9
Why max bladesurge last:
-Spell damage is kinda useless to be max before you had Trinity Force (or Sheen at least)
Attack speed bonus is pretty much good with Hiten strike early game
Dodge bonus is very good while use with passive from Nimbleness. Use minions attack for movement bonus sometime.
CDR is good for anykind of build on Irelia
Health is making her more tanky at start
Exhaust: (Highly recommended)
One of the most usefull summoner spell making you able to slow target that try to dive you early game and give easy kill around level 5-6 in team fight or suprise fight.
Can save your *** fastly from epic diver or gank. Can also make you able to flash for the kill later. Ghost can also be use for Irelia.
-Never forget it apply Sheen and Trinity force effet so it became OP mid game
-Use it to last hit minions early game when farming is hard to do
-Use active against high armor champ for more effectiveness
-Healing passive is usefull, so always hit minions when you can
-Never forget that when your hp% is lower then your opponent it'll stun him
-Use it to heal yourself very fast on minions
-While pushing turret, hit incoming minions for more effective push
-Try Stun + Transcendant blade for great counter
The best skill sequence for a kill is probably:
Use bladesurge at last for counter running away from your opponnent...
Doran's Shield: 120 health, 10 armor, 8 hrp5
Great surviability early game and regen is pretty much good for standing long time on lane
Mercury Treads: 2em, 25mr, 35 tenacity
Tenacity + Passive is op on Irelia making her one of the best counter CC in LOL
Trinity Force: 250 health, 250 mana, 30 ad, 30 ap, 30 as, 15% crits, 12% em, Trinity buff bonus
Gave her epic damage mid game and decent damage late game, pretty much good for everything
******Other parts of the build will depend on whatever is need in your team and what kind of champ is carrying the other team.
Item Others part recommended
Carrying with attack damage: (Two ways)
Attack damage/leech Way:
Item against Attack Damage:
Item against Abilty Power:
Personal build that counter everything (Mostly Offtank):
The way to anti-tank
If you play more as an offtank you should only buy Madred Bloodrazor and never forget to use Hiten strike on tank so you'll have 3 kind of damage (AD, magic, True) giving you epic efficiency against tank combined with your survivability.
If you play more carry, you should not go anti-tank but Last Whisper and Black Clever are better option against tank or tanky champ.
