How To Lane Against: Irelia?
Hello. I'm asking this question in regards of how to lane/play against Irelia. She's a champion with huge outplay potential and good dueling and burst. She has synergy with mercury treads and cannot be disabled and has good mobility. All of these factors make her into a monster.
I never do well against an Irelia unless I'm a bruiser. I'm not asking about what champions to pick against Irelia. I'm asking what my general playstyle should be when I'm against her.
I was playing Azir against an Irelia and level 1 she was in the brush and I didn't know. She Bladesurge's to me and then auto's me 3 times because of her base movement speed is so high and I have to use both my Health Potion's. I couldn't even punish her for it. I tried to use Arise! to trade back but couldn't. I built another Doran's Ring upon backing with health potions. She outplayed me at 6 where she managed to flash my Emperor's Divide and from there, the lane was even (in her favour slightly) in terms of gold for the next 10 minutes. I went from 0/1 to 0/4. I built an early Seeker's Armguard but didn't upgrade to Zhonya's Hourglass until after boots since I could farm under tower.
A lot of the time, I tend to push into the middle of the lane, not over-extending but not being under tower. I had Morellonomicon and the once I bought that (keeping up in farm with her) she destroyed me. She didn't even have Trinity Force.
Here's the games statistics.
