Erm is this microphone on? It is? O hi! And welcome to my second build of....
Irelia!!!! This is a build in response to my other build. I did my other build based on what I've seen other players do and I wont sugar coat it, it sucked.... So im doing this build on what I usually do. Most of this is cross-referenced with some pro gamers (I didn't consult them I've just studied their ways of playing.) Some of the popular Irelia's Wickd and sydtko(from team curse, he played irelia in the IEM world championship vs CLG).

Press the Attack
Lethal Tempo
Fleet Footwork
Dark Harvest
This is incredible on Irelia. It helps with when it deals true damage, you get about 7-10 hits with it before it goes away (usually), and you'll gain more life.
greater mark of desolation I know I know, you think this is absolutely useless on Irelia because of your . You think I should take a attack damage rune. I disagree. You don't always use your so you need that armor ignore/armor pen to get the most damage.
You are an off-tank. This adds to your overall tankiness. By the end of the game you should have about 160 armor and 200 ish magic resist. It allows you to not have a problem tower diving and starting team fights. I dont know why you wouldnt want to take this.
You are an off-tank. This makes your magic resist go boom! This helps you not die so much and have lost of magic resist. Your pretty much an anti carry(in a sense don't troll me about that) you have alot of MR and AMR(armor) so they cant do shnapskies about you.
This allows you to catch up to those filthy Noxians and those pesky Zaunites (for all of you who are like WTF is he stoned? im not and go look up her lore :D)
greater quintessence of vigor In your endgame you should have about 119+ health regen. If you have baron about 250 ish im not really doing the math but I know from experience where it should be. What is bad chicken about this build is that after a big huge battle you can just go and hit a couple of minions and be up to full health.

is an oddity but it helps all of our summoner spells. I don't find anything to outrageous in the way of masteries but if you disagree just comment with your answer.

Mercury's Treads 1100

Wit's End 3100
Force of Nature 2900
Madred's Bloodrazor 3800
Irelia is a situational hero. I find that I almost never play the same build again besides the starting portion.Starting
  • Check if they are abnormally big on AD (as in 3 or 4 ad and 1 or 2 ap or wtever else).
  • If they are heavy AD start with and 5 .
  • If they aren't start with the and 3 .
  • Next if they are heavy AD get .
  • If they aren't get mercury treads
Early Mid-Game
This is where you chose what you think is best. If you are getting zoned build philosopher's stone and a then just sell them later in the game. If you need magic resist start on a . If you need armor work on . If your team doesn't really have a tank build an . If you are doing good follow the build that i specified up there about 5 inches. The options are endless!

Build what you think is best. If their team is tanky start a . If you built an atma's build hp items to get the maximum damage, and don't forget phage. If you built your not hooked into anything you don't want. If you built the build .
Late Game
Build what you think is best. If you are having a particularly long game sell an item or two and build more damage. Like if you have an atma's sell it for a madred's.
Sorry if this isn't too helpful in this portion if you have problems with it I will post more strategies. Just comment with your feedback.

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
You build like this for sustainability and true damage from . This is the most common build besides the level 2 and 3 W build but that usually doesn't happen to often. Some other builds I've seen start with I don't like to do that because it puts a stutter on your laning phase not being able to get alot of C's. It also puts a damper on your damage output.

Combo Sequence

These are your abilities. I know your like No Really? You don't say? and all that junk but more than once my friends go look up a guide and experiment in the game and I don't want you to do that.
- - - - and if they are still not dead just repeat. Your bladesurge applies on-hit effects like red buff and more importantly it applies the true damage from .
Back to Top


Early game
  • Get C's
  • Harass a bit not too much because you need your mana up
  • Get kills remember to coordinate with your jungler for successful ganks.
  • Laning phase is over.
  • Go with your team.
  • Help get turrets down.
  • Farm Farm Farm! You must be constantly farming. Go to the jungle or go to the bot or top lanes and FARM!
  • Be a team player. Get kills when you can but let your team Farm too.
  • Push towers
  • FARM MORE!!! Until the game is over you are never done farming.
  • Go to late game build items and sell the cheapo mini-mart items.

Summoner Spells

This helps alot. If you can barely not get that one kill by like 10 hp just pop an Ignite and he will get screwed! With your it means even if its on cooldown you get some boost! This is almost always a must on AD heros.
You are going to be a solo top lane like I said above. You will more than likely be against an AD carry so this allows you to slow them down and stop some of their damage. With your it also reduces their armor and magic resist by 10.
Other viable options
This helps with mobility. It allows you to chase more and or faster. With your it makes you move incredibly quick. I would take this if im playing against fast heros in top lane, like Master Yi, Nidalee, or Shyvana
This helps with chasing running. It allows you to jump on to ledges and other enemy players. Too bad it doesn't benefit from . I don't like to choose this one but it rivals .
One of the most popular AD choices. It lets you heal, cant get much simpler. It helps you not die in mid battle or help another ally. Sadly it doesn't benefit from :/
Just don't please
You are not a jungler. In desperation if your team locked in and they need a jungler. You can maybe get it but for this guide, Just don't.... Please.....
You got enough tenacity from your passive and mercury treads if you got them. You don't really need this unless you are against singed or teemo and even then just build life, regen, and magic resist and they will get screwed. In short, Just don't.... Please.....

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed my guide(s). I will be still putting in pictures and videos. I will go and archive my other build so I don't have to deal with it. I hope you liked the beautiful colors I used :D Again thanks for reading. Please comment on anything you think I should change/fix.
Austrailia forever
