Has she been accidently nerfed into the ground?
Was this Morellos plan overall? To make attack speed cost more so that she is left behind trying to farm while ad bruisers run the game?

Her late game is still hilariously powerful but she just seems to have lost tons of popularity recently, anyone know what happened to our poor little blade mistress?

She's still strong. Nothing directly nerfed her. She was indirectly nerfed by Warmog's Armor being the entire meta game though. In S2 she rules because armor/MR stacking was the bees knees. Now everyone stacks health which > Hiten Style.

Exactly! She was indirectly nerfed very hard.

Building just the Zephyr would make Irelia very squishy and quite the treat for another ad burst top lane who wants her head mounted on his wall.

Building zephyr later means that she can build ninja tabi to counter the bursty AD top though...
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

You can't penetrate 10% autoattack damage reduction though.

A majority of the top tier ad bruisers (Kha zix, Renekton, etc) hit you with their abilities rather than auto attacks. While it protects you to a degree it is more of a counter to Ad carries.
Though Irelia seems to have more potential than I thought, but she has taken a huge hit in season 3.

True damage is still true damage early on. Also she herself is a Warmogs abuse, and she's effectively immune to CC for the most part. She can out maneuver and kill a lot of her opponents.
