“Dodging her stun is essential.
If she has no minions, she will never win.
Be careful earlygame since her passive makes her outdamage you.”
“Zone off cs lvl 1.
Dblade start, tabi rush, bork 1st.
Dont w her w.
Dont randomly blow all your cds, if she has space to run you down.
Care with her passive.
Past 6 and tabi you just statcheck her.
After her bork its a bit rough, but its hard to not get significant advantage in this lane.”
“Take conqueror and this matchup is very easy. Her level 1 is really weak if she doesn't have stacks (make sure your minions are HEALTHY!!!) so you can look for an early fat trade into level 3 dive. Do not touch her when she has full stacks before level 6, you will die. Once both of you are level 6 and you have healing cut, every trade and fight will go in your favor. Our all-in is better until she finished BotRK and we have more sustain, armor, as well as base HP. Simply put, just play like a stat checker and it will work, just don't try it before level 6. Notably, if you do fall behind it becomes important to use E1 to dodge her E stun and to not dump our W stun into her W. When trading, use our W as a disengage tool and a little burst of damage on the way out - try to keep our stun up at all times to force the Irelia player to respect our damage”
“I feel bad for the knives. Punch her for getting close to our wave. E her out of her dumb silly goofy dumb dumb dashes. Roll her. Respect her 4 stacks, and punch her.”
“(Top) LT or Conqueror. She scales really hard and also have a pretty good early game. You can kill her in early, she's dangerous if she manage to eat a wave while you are fighting so try to set her behind as much as you can and go assassin so you can probably oneshot her if you don't get baited into her W. ”
“Tricky matchup, you outdamage her hard if she has no stacks, but its very easy for her to get them while fighting in lane. Care about your lowhp minions that she can jump on and use as a way to get you. Try to not get hit by her E and if u do instantly W it. Place a barrel on your minions, if you take some practice you can destroy it as she dashes on them, passive auto her and you win most of the fights, but if irelia is skilled it could be very hard. Her ult is a huge threat.”
“(d blade, flash/ignite, conditioning/unflinching)
conditioning or boneplating can be interchangeable, but irelias typically burn their w or e just to get it off u before re-engaging when those spells are back up. irelia is not a hard fight unless the player knows what they're doing. avoid fighting her with her stacks up but do poke her when she goes to q a minion. she's locked in animation and typically cant strike back, so u can either get her low and force a bad recall or at the very least force her to burn her pots. be mindful of her stun as they typically put it behind them, q forward onto a minion or even u and put the other part behind u. her r not only slows u but prevents u from aa immediately. it's pretty easy to dodge as yone as u get a free dodge with e, but keep in mind ur placement of it if u intend to fight her immediately as if ur in a bad spot, it may fuck u over instead. rush bramble/tabs or executioner/tabs as she rushes sceptre/tabs into bork”
“Try to keep her from stacking up her passive lvl 1. If she respects you, you can get the lvl 2 first and potentially get a taunt. If she doesn't, you can punish her with empowered Qs and lvl 2 all in her and kill her with ignite. If you don't play agressive early game, you pretty much lose the lane since she can easily kill you with full stacked passive. Stay under your turret and hope for ganks, unless you have taken TP with you then you can play for Ults without getting punished too hard.”

“In the early game you can easily kill her . Especially now that Blade of The Ruined King got nerfed . Just play aggresively in the early game and try to dodge her e so her passive doesnt stack and you should be able to run her down . ”
