    Irelia Jungle?

    So, I have been wondering, has anyone ever tried Irelia jungle? Her kit seems like it would fit in quite nicely with the jungler meta.

    Her Q is a gap closer, albeit at a shorter range then others. Her W gives decent sustain while also dealing true damage (which, if I remeber, is highly efficient on minions and monsters), and her E is a slow, but can also act like a stun.

    I would think building Feral Flare would work great on her. You could also go full damage, or kind of an off tank. If you want damage, go Tri Force, BotRK, Zephyr, Mobility Boots, and then a defensive item like Gaurdian Angel or Banshee's Veil.

    If you wantan off tank, go Tri Force, Sunfire Cape, Spirit Visage, Mobility Boots, and then another defensive item to counter the other team's main damage type.

    What do you guys think?

    Irelia needs to hit her power spike, both level and item related which is why she isn't a very strong jungler. She can clear decently (albeit slow) and gank pretty well but that isn't where she excels.

    Because of her W mot scaling with anything, you need to abuse the power spike from level ~7 up to the end of mid game which is hard to do in the jungle. Not to forget she needs a Trinity Force which is an incredibly expensive item to get in the jungle.

    TLDR: You can jungle her but its a complete waste of her potential.

    Might work, but definitely not viable, as Irelia is more late game focused, and it takes time to get to late game item in the jungle.

    Plus the clear would be really slow as she has no aoe

    I would say she is late game focused, with her nerfs resorting her to a godly late game carry.

    Irelia is NOT late game focused. She's a mid game oriented champion - read my reply for more details
