Tips Against Irelia in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
alexionut05 says “She can be quite the nuisance, but you can defeat her even in lane by playing patiently. W when she tries to all in you, and potentially turn the fight around by stunning her into a wall and fighting her. Avoid fighting if she has full stacks, though. Pick up an early Bramble Vest and you should be all good.”
IoannAzerot says “Take ignite and hope for your luck. If you want to try and gain an advantage take a rune with an undead grip and force a fight at first level before Irelia gets a full passive. It won't work any further than that.”
youmamaleftu says “Skilled match up. Do not trade when she has full stacks on her passive. before 6 level stun her with her e. After lvl 6 dodge her e with q and her r with w and you will be fine. Buy antiheal”
LimitlessHavoc says “You hard win level 1, you just need to trade before the melee minions get low enough for her to Q all of them and stack her passive, so if you leash you wont be able to abuse the level 1 advantage as effectively.
When the wave is slow pushing to you, you need to respect the fact that she will have her passive fully stacked and unless you are extremely ahead she can simply run you down.
Dodge her E with your dashes and don't waste your full combo on her W.
If she fails to kill a minion with her Q it goes on a long cooldown early game, you can abuse this.
Respect her fully stacked passive.
Level 6 you hard win all ins if she doesn't juke your ult with her Q and if she doesn't land her E.”
Cryniu says “Juega neutral pero con mucho cuidado, Irelia en los intercambios largos hace mucho daño.
El combo Q+W es indispensable cuando ella se lance.
Lleva tenacidad en runas y botas de armadura, ella aturde.
Prioriza vesta espinosa, irelia se cura mucho de base.
Considera resistencias híbridas, hace bastante daño mágico.”
Helzky says “Ah yes, my permaban. Irelia gets rewarded for you hitting your E and she gets her passive stacks off your ghouls giving her more money. Need I say anything else? If you're not banning Tryndamere, this should be your permaban. If you have her in your game, play under tower and don't try to solo kill her, it doesn't work. Buy executioners and hope your jungler is good at the game.”
RENGARDOSEXO says “i always go exhaust and ignite against her, use your jump to dodge her R and E, or be really skillful to just simply dodge her E, it's not really that hard, she misses her E at early game? you just kill her, and build an advantage
magician4444 says “Levels 1 - 5 is your only chance to get a lead. Dodge her E and try your best to have good positioning and kite her as well. After 6, getting hit by her ult is just a death sentence. ”
TheChoz3nOne says “This match-up is minor threat-level and you can outplay her with all your kits. Even if you're behind - just max boxes and early or lately she'll jump on you because (idk why) all Irelia players are very aggressive and they can even dive on you. I only lost to Irelia once in 2021 on Top and only because of my ping. I have about 70% Win Rate in games against her. Some of my Irelia opponents played so bad against me so they couldn't do any damage in the game ending up the game with score of 0/11 or even more.”
SadgeBoyK says “dont walk up when she has her q's stacked. dodger her e, goo the wave so she cant spam q, and you beat her with ignite if you fight her when she has no more q. also, her mana pool is very limited, you can bait out her abilities to waste her mana.”
Your Desired Username says “A good Irelia player can make your life hell but this match-up is pretty straight forward. Try Q'ing the minion you think she will q next. Rush bramble, add steelcaps if you're still having difficulties. Play extremely safe level 2, i mean it. Her damage is so disgusting if she hits e and its kinda hard to dodge her e because you're an immobile champion. Poke, poke, poke early and farm safely. Level 6 is where it gets easy. You can simply ult her at full life when she has 0 stacks and murder her. A good trick you can use is to ult her just after she throws her first E so that it gets eliminated. Ignite is mandatory, it allows you to fuck up and still win and make early fights pre-6 very doable. You outscale her and she's also a pretty good ult target, so feel free to do that if there are no better targets.”
boboderaffe says “A good Irelia (and even bad ones) can easily outtrade you or catch you off-guard. Your E+W combo usually never works because she can jump into safety with minions nearby. She can use the same trick to jump out of your ult.
Rush anti heal and Zhonya's and give up as much as you have to. Never 1v1 her.
Early on you can still get some stacks with E and W by simply targeting ally minions that are about to die.
Later in the game, Irelia is not a problem anymore, you just have to survive her early on.
Irelia will almost always build shieldbow/steraks and wit's end. You simply have to buy shadowflame (if she is the biggest threat in the entire game or someone else is also reliant on shields.”
BreadedBreadCrum says “High damage, low burst for your shield to delete, high mobility, insane scaling. Irelia is ban worthy. If you can dodge her stuns well, take HoB to counter stun her. Otherwise, take Grasp to make trades more fair. Her engage is completely destroyed is she is stunned midway. Capitalize on her Q mistakes. Take BoRK or Goredrinker.”
DanteBlaire says “Match up favorável e bem tranquila com a build de 1x1. Volibear acerta controle de grupo bem fácil na Irelia. Apenas ter cuidado em trocar com ela com a passiva ou conquistador full stackados. ”
Black Demon Ezel says “Something is wrong with you if you did not ban Irelia. Her Q one-shots your walkers and slaughters you making her Yorick's biggest counter. Do NOT play Yorick into Irelia no matter what lane she's in. Instead, try to swap lanes or if not possible, do NOT play Yorick. Play someone like Mordekaiser or something ”
Hoplite345 says “Irelia is a mobile, and very much up in your face champion with a lot of utility and sustain, just like Yone, however, this is one of the harder match ups for Yone and typically should just be banned.”
Atomragnar says “If she is any good this is a hard matchup. Rush steelcaps and brambles vest, it really helps with your trades.
You can cheese her level 1 if you start w. Don't fight her if you have lot of friendly minions with low HP since she can Q/heal on to them. You MUST dodge her E, if her E is down you can kill her. You can also interrupt her Q with your E if you manage to time your E while she is in her Q animation.
NEVER fight her if her passive is fully stacked.
Even if you are ahead of her, rush steelcaps and brambles vest. ”
Makkro says “Try to dodge her e or w it and bully the fuck out of her lvl 1 and back off into tower when she has 4 stacks if shes good you just perma farm and try to survive and keep wave on your side never fight on her side”
LunaticDancer says “Irelia is a 1v1 nightmare for most characters. She's extra bad for Yorick though, because she can one-shot your ghouls with her Q, stack to full and then beat you to death with ease. You should be banning her. If you didn't for some reason, prepare to spend a lot of time under turret, take D Shield and I am Bullied runes. This build deals with Irelia a tiny bit better because she can't one shot your ghouls as they land, and you have decent burst damage.
Anti-heal highly advised.”
COJA says “Her Q allows her to dodge all your spells easily as long as the minion wave is big. If you push into her, make sure she doesn't manage to freeze it. Use your E to dodge her stun if possible, but otherwise this matchup is almost unplayable. Buy tabis and collect what farm you can.”
Captain Bane says “this champion is what defines the taste of vomit I get in my mouth whenever I play against her. Freeze the wave on your end, if things get out of hand, early game look to not let her get all of her passive stacks and be careful for a lvl 2 all-in, i would go barrier/TP and maybe try PTA because you will win short trades, long trades tho..... just dont (if she is going to get passive soon anyway)”
Sveti Petar says “AHAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHHHAHHHAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA.
Just all in her lvl 3, tell ur jg to stay away from top so he doesn't feed her early
if she wins first 1v1, and u used ignite and barrier, then i don't know what to say to u. wait till ur jg and mid gank u.
Grasp & divine.”
RedRandyDevil says “I'll put her in major because she's just awkward to deal with. Keep an eye on her passive, trade with her when its on 0 and when she has no minions to kill. Rule of thumb is If irelia is pushing she wins. If you are pushing, you win.”
space cat says “irelia has a lot of outplay potential but unless they are very good at irelia, you can win trades even if shes full stacks, but its better to not try it there. try to fight her when she doesnt have stacks, land Q, and you win. ”
Larkana_ says “Most Irelias will dash to backline minions even when near your turret which is mostly a free kill. She can't really kill you either unless you eat all of her abilities.
Outscaling edge: Skarner [High]”
peepoHappy says “Fuck Irelia players, broken champ.. Just pray you dodge her E, if you can do that, you can battle her but plz don't 1v1 good irelias before lvl 6 unless you can bully her in the early game”
Night Guy says “Irelia is a master top laner she has a good sustain and negate of both AP and AD because of her W and has a stun plus her ultimate gives her opportunities to outplay any gank or trade you try to do after 6. You kind of have to poke her from afar with your Q and try to dodge her E. In the early levels you can try to poke her down and try to secure a kill if she whiffs her Q and can't really get to you so abuse your range on her and poke her down an Irelia without her E and Q is pretty much easy to trade and/or kill, after 6 though play it safe and probably ask for ganks. If you cannot play against her or hate this champion as much as I do avoid playing against her at all circumstances by banning her.”
Eduardocwalle says “This is a really good 1v1 too, but in my personal experience, irelia isnt a problem UNTIL SHE GETS KILLS FROM NOWHERE, u can dodge his e and r with our ultimate. U have to shor-trade her, always if she has no passive, rush antiheal and play with ignite.”
Black Demon Ezel says “Can't believe I forgot about Irelia when this guide first came out. She's so deadly because of her perma lifesteal. Half the time, Ignite won't work because she'll just permanently kill minions to counteract the grievous wounds. You'll need an army to kill her if she's too dangerous”
Gragas Fumante says “ Her kill potential uppon you when Mini is absurd. Use your E to fall back when she jumps. If she lands her stun you are dead. You can try supress her under the tower not allowing her to keep her passive stacked but it is very risky due to ganks and her high mobility.”
5Head Builds says “It has to be a good player but this matchup can be hard because this really just comes down to the better player.
Advice: Don't get stunned and you should win whatever trade or all-in.”
lookatherizinosaurus says “Not as much of a threat since her nerf and imo more of a skill matchup. She can't kill you that easily in early laning phase anymore so make sure to stay even or get ahead with a bit of bullying”
ToothlessKnight says “A master of Irelia can make anyone's life hell, but Urgot wins this win pretty hard. If you land your E she is pretty screwed in a 1v1 and you outscale her pretty hard. She only has kill pressure if she fully stacks her passive off the minion wave. If she stacks it and you know shes going to land her stun, just E away and kite until her passive falls off. This is a fairly easy matchup overall, just don't get caught or let her get a lead.”
Prof Harambe says “Irelia is the prime example of a champ you can't really deal with. Your e slow is pointless, because she can just use q to move around. Super strong early and outscales you in a 1v1 scenario. Best to just farm under tower and try and outvalue her in teamfights. Since you are playing off meta, you still have a chance of the Irelia underestimating daisy due to a lack of matchup knowledge, but if they know that they can just either wait it out and murder you by dashing away to some minions or killing daisy, threatening to engage onto you if you step up. Then again, you could say that it is an easy matchup because a lot of Irelia players try and force dives for no reason, allowing you to root and e stall until she dies. But seriously a semi-competent Irelia can dominate you all game.”
MrZoltannn says “You need to look out for her passived stack fights, so just try to Q her or Q at low health minions. Try to proc W when she walks up to last hit minions.
Use e to jump out from her E stun. lvl 6 fight is all fight dependent, get near megaform, start mini gnar all-in and if she try to all-in at you, you can just turn mega gnar, and ult her to the wall.”
Acumulator says “Annoying since she will disturb your rhythm and occasionally Ult you but other than that it is besically you trying to hit her while she tries to dodge enough so that she can still engage.”
_WhiteSnow_ says “Very powerful champion this patch. Dodge her e at all costs and fight close to turret + short trades. Rush antiheal. If she hits r, try to disengage. - play for short trades and all in if her w is down.”
I Am Goliath says “Be careful against Irelia's level 1 and 2 as her auto attack range is really high and most of them try to all in at level 2 especially if they can hit their E, you always want to pay attention to Irelia's stacks from her Q and do not trade when she has a high amount of stacks, you'll also want to punish her with Q's and auto attacks whenever she goes to Q a minion, you can also predict this and E to a minion you think she is going to Q to which can be good if you want a kill, although this can be risky if she doesn't Q then your E will be on cooldown for a bit and you have to play safe, overall most irelias are the same they try to push in once they get tiamat and they try to all in with ultimate at 6 after they get a few passive stacks, Irelia is never really an issue for me as Urgot unless she somehow gets fed.”
Thing in the Ice says “Irelia has so many options to close the gap against you. The key here is to keep an eye on your minions that are low on health. Irelia’s Q will reset if she kills a minion with it. You absolutely have to dodge her E because it applies her mark on you. Overall, you want Irelia to push in this matchup as much as possible. Keep your minion wave close to your tower and ask for ganks.”
Anoying bro5 says “Abuse her early game when she does not have her passive stacks from Qing minions. You want to parry her E stun as it is very obvious and if you land this lvl 2 you auto win. Be careful of her dodging your riposte by Qing to a minion or behind you. After lvl 6 if you dont riposte the stun, you can riposte her ult, or the q after her ult to negate her resetting Q. ”
Stinkee says “Most Irelia players are not good enough to pull her off to her full potential. A very good Irelia can easily destroy you in lane but this is very rare in low-mid elos. She is going to be annoying, dashing all over the place and healing. If she misses her E or R you should win the fight. If her W is up she will use it to tank your Q, if you see her standing still with W while your Q is channeling charge it all the way. She will be cc'd for a while which will let you win the trade even though she blocked most of your Q damage. The best way to deal with an Irelia is to freeze the wave under your tower, this way she will be unable to CS or Q your minions without walking far up and being vulnerable to ganks, she will not be able to dash to any minions to escape because they are in front of her. A simple trick that can work against many Irelia players is to pay attention to the health of your minions, she is going to try to dash to the low health minions. You can charge your Q on your own low health minions forcing her to either get the minon(s) but get hit by your Q or she will miss the minion(s). I would recommend taking Grasp or Glacial Augment against Irelia and rushing Bramble Vest and Plated Steelcaps.”
lol Wero says “Even with the Range advantage Neeko has over Irelia; She can still all in with her E (the stun) to kill you easily in lane pre 6. Her ultimate just makes it worse, i recommend rushing ninja tabi vs Irelia. The lane is still winnable as Neeko, Just make sure you can dodge the stun and keep your distance.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Maxing (Q) is your best bet, however, late game this becomes less effective simply due to her gap close chase and lock downs which tends to be impossible to avoid. Try your best to close out the game before late game arrives. She is a monster later in the game. Early game it's all about avoiding her stun and staying away from low HP minions so she can not dash through them to you with a stun. Your first item is mandatory to purchase Oblivion Orb, otherwise she will simply heal back to full on a full wave rotation. If you get hit by her (R) don't touch the blades. Flash / sidestep her ultimate. If you get stunned she will win every trade so it's pretty much dodge or die.”
BoilTheOil says “Take Conqueror or Hail of Blades. If she tries to dash around like a bug put her in her place with E and knock her out. Don't let her get 4 stacks. If you freeze the wave close to your tower she can't really do anything about it. This character does waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to much damage for no reason, so don't use W without full grit, she will probably kill you at least once in lane while you blink. Also, Irelia players are dogshit so it's easier than it should be.”
Phrxshn says “Predict her Flawless Duet(E) and Vanguard's Edge(R). Doing so will make this a easy trade and will prevent her from refreshing her Bladesurge(Q) AKA Dash. If you do get caught by her skillshots do use Mega Adhesive to reduce her damage. (Recommended Items: Rylai's Scepter, Plated Steelcaps) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Mega Adhesive stops Bladesurge) (Fling overrides Bladesurge)”
King Turtle says “Irelia with stacks has more than enough power to beat you in early trades, and she can out sustain you until you get Riftmaker. Add on that many Irelia players rush Blade Of The Ruined King, and lane phase becomes a more skill dependant situation. ”
The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Irelia could be a challenging matchup. Usually you would wanna go Shieldbow rush against her, but if her team has 1 or more tanks, go for Kraken Slayer.
Early game, avoid trading with her AT ALL COST if she stacks up her passive.”
LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Irelia's lane phase is extremely overpowered making her one of the hardest champions to deal with in lane. She has way too many dashes that do not cost mana, her damage is way too high, her stun can be over 1000 range, and her abuse of corrupting pot and time warp tonic makes her hard to kill. Play extremely carefully the entire lane and do not force any trades with her without your jungler or away from your tower.
Post 6 this lane becomes almost unplayable as her ult is also broken and counters your ult. Bramble vest is mandatory though she can quickly heal to full from minions.
What keeps this matchup from being a 5 is that her teamfights are garbage and a single hook can shut her down entirely. It also helps that anathemas and frozen heart counter her entire kit.”
Veng Shotz says “Ire's ability to One shot minions with Q all while stacking her stat stick passive will be your bane, your best bet is to either Q minions that she might q onto, or hold onto your e when she tries to all in you and dash out of her stun, You'll have a general hard time against her unless she either hard misplays or you managed to interrupt her dash.
post 6 this lane is almost unbeatable. with the slow on her ult giving her a free stun+ 4 stack passive, you'll lose half your health in 1 second and die the next, quite literally.
If you managed to get a kill early, rush an executioners, as when she loses the ability to spam q heal on minions without just ignoring your q's, she'll either have to win all in's or lose the sustain game.
Always play safe when she has a wave ready to spam Q onto, if she has no stacks she isnt a champion, and you should be able to all in her, just be aware of her ult and flash CD's. ”
quinn adc says “First, I have tried every keystone imaginable, and I can confirm with my experience against high elo irelias that Phase Rush is 100% the best option atm.
The question remains: why Phase Rush? Well, Irelia only has the advantage over Quinn post Level 6 because her ultimate slows for 90% for 1.5 seconds, AND it allows her to get a reset on her Q.
This means that the slow allows irelia to dash onto you for a reset, and secure land her E on you for another reset on her Q for a total of 3 dashes onto you.
Now, phase rush works wonders because when Irelia ults you, instantly proc your phase rush, and the slow resistance allows you to now be slowed much by her R, and grants you MS to run away.
First, pre level 6 laning phase is heavily quinn favoured.
Play aggressive, and save vault to dodge irelia E OR vault away from irelia if she lands E on you.
Even if she stuns you with E and gets a Q reset, if her E stuns you and she Qs on you, vault away with auto-e-auto, and then if she dashes again, your phase rush + w max allows you to out run her with ease after.
Her E range is 775, but it's easy to tell when she wants to use it because she'll put the first mark of her E down before she engages.
It's quite easy to dodge with W max! Her Q range is 600, which is 75 more than our auto range, so keep that in mind! Also, our E does not reset her Q if we are marked, BUT if you vault irelia before she Qs a minion, Her Q will go on cooldown lol.
Do not try this at home though because her Q is so so fast, and this requires smurf-like prediction timing.
IMPORTANT: If you blind irelia, she CANNOT Q you if you are outside of nearsight.
Use this to your advantage in laning phase, and also when she tries to all-in you post 6.
NOW, irelia is level 6 and you're scared.
When irelia dashes onto you, her character goes slightly behind you, so it's hard to land Q on her after she dashes towards you.
The best thing to do is to predict her engage.
Irelia wants to dash on a minion likely before ulting you, so anticipate this.
When she ults you, she will follow with Q 99% of the time, so retaliate with your Q when she ults.
Now, irelia will Q onto you, and you then vault instantly.
You will proc phase rush AND irelia is blinded, so now you can outrun her, and by the time her nearsight wears off, she is now too far to Q onto you again.
Master this, and Irelia should never be able to full- combo you with her ultimate :)”
Amphawn says “This matchup sucks. Dodge worthy. Pay attention to your minions' health so she can't quickly stack up passive stacks and dive you. You don't really ever beat her in lane so just try and freeze close to tower. At level 1 though, you can push lane up so that if she does try and fight you level 2-3 you can back up and fight in your minions, which should give you the upper hand. Always be prepared for her stun, as if she hits you, she gets a bunch of free damage, a passive stack, and gets on you while refreshing her Q cooldown. The stun is pretty predictable, and once you see the first go down, try to get away from it as it gives you more room to dodge while giving Irelia more room for error. If she ults you W, ult yourself, and then run. You don't want her to get the extra damage from you walking out, and she will also dive you immediately, so watch out for her stun, because if you get hit, you're probably dead.”
iZeal says “Very hard matchup. Fight her when she doesn't have stacks, dodge her E or she gets to dodge your Qs as she jumps behind you. Once she has vamp scepter poking her becomes useless since she heals for a lot of damage. Unlike Fiora she can 100-0 you under tower with 5 stacks and her ultimate.
SunFalk says “She has a dash. She has a shield. She has a stun. - Irelia is a carry, to play against her, don't feed her in laning phase, if you do, she will scale and snowball hard, try to dodge her Q and be careful for an ult that will make her able to 1v1 you easely.”
slogdog says “Irelia is a hard matchup early game. She can Q all your ghouls to heal up and to stack up her passive. Your wall is completely useless, as she can Q, and E is very hard to hit, because she can Q everything. And also even if you do hit the E, she'll just eat your ghouls up for breakfast. However, once you get hullbreaker you will be too tanky for her to fight, as Maiden and Q is too much brute damage for her to tank. The secret to winning this matchup is to run ignite, as it cuts down a lot of her power which is in the healing of Q.”
Phrxshn says “Predict her Flawless Duet(E) and Vanguard's Edge(R). Doing so will make this a easy trade and will prevent her from refreshing her Bladesurge(Q) AKA Dash. If you do get caught by her skillshots do use Heart Zapper to reduce her damage. (Recommended Items: Thornmail, Plated Steelcaps) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
A_Drunk_Carry says “This is who I ALWAYS ban. I've tested this matchup out vs similarly skilled friends who have never played Irelia before and still struggle to go even. Her Q eats your ghouls in one, while also regening her and resetting the Q off execute. You literally make her more powerful and a sustaining machine with insane farm. This is dodge worthy if you don't ban it, tbh.”
MythicMike says “Her dashes can be quite troublesome for you and make it hard to hit her, but you can also predict her dashes by using Q on your own minions that are low on hp. At 5 stacks you have to back off since she can just auto you to death. ”
MagicallyDelish4 says “You can level one all in her with Doran's blade. If she tried to last hit a minion with Q try to stop it with a trade or a third Q. Use your abilities to dodge her E. She will win extended trades because of her passive so try to freeze the wave. ”
Xerath gaming says “Skill matchup even tho Irelia is no skills. Stay safe till 6, if she engages you with E then press R and her E is gone so she is free kill basically, aim your Q behind you if you think she will press Q. Take ignite!”
Raen says “Use your E carefully cuz she will dance with minions dodging your stun. Your E don't block her Q anymore like it did on old Irelia Q, remember about it. She can outplay you and win if you fight her with minion wave so she can jump on them, also if shes keep an eye on her passive if she's fully stacked try to wait out her passive. Fast tabi and Botrk and you will easily win 1vs1.”
Justkb says “Don't fight her when she has her passive stacked!!! make sure you are only fighting her inside her wave as she cannot stack her passive as easily. If you can dodge her E and then you can set up the rest of you engage with an easy Q into AA, W, AA E, AA, and R. It is easy for her to beat you once she gets blade now so wait until you have completed Trinity in order to re-engage her.”
P1Legend says “So yeah, riot thinks this champ is balanced, and that is beyond my comprehension. You never win sustained fights, and by the time you burst her, she will just heal on the next wave. If she hits you with her bind, she will all in you 100% of the time, and you never win that. Look for bursts when the Jungler is nearby and bait her into engaging into an unfavorable 2v1. Note 11.14 she was changed, so we will see how bad this matchup is after a few games vs it - Hi future Tony here, no this matchup is still unplayable”
ShadowSlayerMain says “Always try predicting her last-hit target, disengage from her Q or R with your E as it puts her behind you, if she doesn't manage to last hit a minion with Q try to hit your W before all-in-ing, get Steelcaps or Bramble Vest 1st B, in Late Game you always need Thornmail”
LoLReal says “Irelia doesn't pose much of a threat at all to us. Her level 2 is pretty strong with her passive stacked, but Darius out trades her at all points in the game. Be mindful of her passive and don't overplay into minion damage and you should easily take care of her.”
Hijitori says “Care of her all-in on lvl 2 with her stacks. Remember that she can dash up to 3 times and that she stops after the dash slightly behind you. Irelia is also hard to punish for csing because she can jump to any minion at any time with her big damage Q, rarely just auto-attacks minions when knows your punish strategy and if you miss "punishing" Q she can also all-in to you with her new stack.”
Phrxshn says “Predict her Flawless Duet(E) and Vanguard's Edge(R). Doing so will make this a easy trade and will prevent her from refreshing her Bladesurge(Q) AKA Dash. If you do get caught by her skillshots do use Pillar of Ice and Subjugate to reduce her damage. (Recommended Items: Thornmail, Plated Steelcaps) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
A_Drunk_Carry says “This matchup is a nuisance, but winnable. Irelia is not extremely tanky, and you'll be able to duel her over time. Beware though as Irelia is a havoc in teamfights. Use wither on her and keep her off of your carries. In mid to low elos I think the Nasus will win out most times by mid game.”
Phrxshn says “Predict her Flawless Duet(E) and Vanguard's Edge(R). Doing so will make this a easy trade and will prevent her from refreshing her Bladesurge(Q) AKA Dash. If you do get caught by her skillshots do use Seismic Shard and Ground Slam to reduce her damage. (Recommended Items: Thornmail, Plated Steelcaps) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
Sporkintahn says “DANGEROUS!!! --- This is a skill lane in Darius' favor but Irelia can still beat you easily if you make dumb plays. ---Like you she thrives in extended trades or fights where she can stack up her passive. Her passive stacks off of autos and ability hits to champions and it gives her extra AS and at max stacks an additional flat AS proc along with extra on hit damage. --- She will more than likely zip around lane with her Q that refreshes CD when it kills or hits anything that was recently hit by her stun or ult. This makes her hard to lock down, especially in the middle of a minion wave so be mindful of when you want to go for Q harass as she can just dash away or right into you negating it. --- Dodge her Stun; if you don't you'll probably lose the trade and the all-in. Play around her cooldowns and punish any mistakes she makes.”
Phrxshn says “Predict her Flawless Duet(E) and Vanguard's Edge(R). Doing so will make this a easy trade and will prevent her from refreshing her Bladesurge(Q) AKA Dash. If you do get caught by her skillshots do use Primal Howl to reduce her damage. (Recommended Items: Thornmail, Plated Steelcaps) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
PanthrickTV says “Skill Matchup!
(1) Spam your Q's at lane. (some poke)
(2) Play smart and exploit her mistakes.
(3) Don' t fight when your minions are low!
(4) If she miss her Q on minion go immediately all in she will lose 1v1 without her Q.”
Kacto15 says “campeón roto, 0% counterplay pierdes el 100% de las veces, puedes intentar jugar bajo torre, dejarte pushear, maxearte la W, no hay mas que decir, el campeón está todo mal diseñado, es más tolerable como sion TANQUE, cómprate las botas de armadura”
Phrxshn says “Predict her Flawless Duet(E) and Vanguard's Edge(R). Doing so will make this a easy trade and will prevent her from refreshing her Bladesurge(Q) AKA Dash. If you do get caught by her skillshots do use The Show Stopper or Facebreaker to reduce her damage. (Recommended Items: Thornmail, Plated Steelcaps) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Even) (Outscaling Edge: Irelia)”
montybucket says “Vs irelia, she basically doesn't have an ultimate as long as you have yours. Thats a big part of her kit thats pretty much nullified by your ultimate since when she uses it on summoners rift and you ult her after she's used it, it doesnt come into the death realm. You beat her in the death realm pretty easily. Be careful though, she can snowball off of just one kill and can ruin a perfectly winnable game if you make a really bad mistake. ”
Wambowama says “You need to watch out for her passive, Q and E. If she has 5 stacks never fight her (idk why this champ is still not nerfed) she will just win. Watchout for her E if it lands you will also die. Somtimes Irelia players will just Q you and stack the passive up, you can get away in Mini Gnar. After lvl 6 kill her in Mega Gnar. Just dont get behind. ”
TroviStyle says “[Conqueror] Dont let her stack her passive You can W her stun and ult to deny any value. Dont let her heal up on your minions. Go for shorter trades, as longer ones can help her turn things arount with Conqueror + lower CD + your minionwaves arriving.”
LilPaniniUwU says “Maxing (Q) es tu mejor opción y el orbe de Oblivion es obligatorio una vez que adquiere Vamperic / BOTRK, pierdes sin él. Al final del juego (Q), esto se vuelve menos efectivo simplemente debido a su persecución de espacios cerrados y bloqueos que tienden a ser imposibles de evitar. Es una molestia y puede evitarlo construyendo tapas de acero plateadas. Haz tu mejor esfuerzo para cerrar el juego antes de que llegue el juego tardío. Ella es un monstruo más adelante en el juego. Al principio del juego, se trata de evitar su aturdimiento y mantenerse alejado de los súbditos de HP bajos para que no pueda atravesarlos con un aturdimiento. Si te golpea (R), no toques las cuchillas. Destella / esquiva su definitiva. Si te aturdes, ella ganará todos los intercambios, por lo que es prácticamente esquivar o morir.
OTP Toxin says “It's really easy to win a lane against her, she will always charge her passive on minions, so respect that, keep moving to dodge her stun and blind her, you can kill her since Irelia players are always so flustered :D”
SaltCat says “You can outplay her, use your r to dodge her r, get q level 1 and fight her before she stacks her passive, let her push to you if she gets wave control, DONT fight when she has her passive”
SilverAvalanche says “You outscale her, but again getting to that part is difficult, she does not even need to hit an ability and she will still win.
Anyway if you can E her E and ult her ult then it is an even lane otherwise you should dodge this matchup. I would recommend locking in Irelia and just spamming R in practice tool so you get used to when you should ult (she does this loop de loop). Also if she flash-> ults you, or hits you from afar and you did not Q away, you are dead meat. ”
duckling213 says “This match up seems easy enough all we have to do is side step the stun thing and then just respect her max passive stacks. Also watchout for ult, she does big pp damage if she gets you with it.
EDIT: After playing some more irelias they are more of a threat than I thought, we need a gank early when we have advantage to get ahead. If you can secure a lead though this lane is very easy.
EDIT AGAIN: After playing another aids match against this stupid champion I have realised if the player isnt a vegetable they will be able to roll us after level 1-2 and if we dont get that pressure on at lvl 1 the lane will be lost without help from the jg. The Irelia will freeze you and your jg will probably abandon you to starve and there will be nothing you can do. So do your best to get a kill lvl 1 and beg your jg to come help you till you have a decent lead. Good luck you will need it.”
InYourWayToHELL says “You can kill her before her first item.
Go for short trades.
She is the squishiest from the bunch so i alaways rush dirk.
Flash her Ultimate or dodge her stun
If dismounted flash her stun.
Irelia's kit is all about wave state. Slow push and zone her off creeps level 1.”
pokeyminch5236 says “Believe it or not, Irelia is not much trouble for Skarner. I actually love going up against them because it's so much fun fighting them. The best way to beat her is to dodge her stun, if you can predict her stun that drops huge damage because she can't Q you for free and build the passive”
kisool says “Irelia pode utilizar o Surto da Lâmina (Q) nos Andarilhos de Yorick e stackar a passiva rapidamente, dificultando as trocas. Faça Corta Cura e jogue recuado, quando ela errar o Surto da Lâmina (Q) puna-a.”
MCSwavest says “Irelia is Irelia, and there's no getting around that. You have to wait for her to whiff E to go in, otherwise stay far far away. If you think you're far away enough, stay back farther. She will tower dive you level 3 if you don't respect her.”
Drake6401 says “Very mobile and has the advantage in early fights. She wants to fight extended trades and will hard push her lane to open an engage. Dodge her stun with your dash in combat to avoid getting marked. Stay away from minions when trying to escape trades unless you are using them for your E. She can get infinite dashes if she kills her target with Q. Her W block is the counter to your W. You have to outplay it in order to win because Irelia is a stronger champion if all abilities land. You have to dodge two of hers and land all of yours.
Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP IN YOUR FAVOUR. DODGE HER STUN. DON’T FIGHT HER WHEN HER PASSIVE IS STACKED. DON’T FIGHT HER NEAR TOO MANY FRIENDLY MINIONS. TRY TO LAND YOUR Q. CONQUEROR IS A MUST. STEELCAP + BRAMBLE COMBO IS GREAT VS HER
Irelia is not too difficult of a matchup. She cannot quite stand up to you in lane in all ins and, unless she takes ignite, the lane should be yours to take over. This is a very snowbally lane so try not to die to her. And if you do, try not to die any more, because Irelia can be a teamfighting monster who can obliterate your backline. When fighting her, there are 2 things you should try to be mindful of. The biggest thing is Irelia’s passive. Try to make sure not to fight her when she has it stacked up fully OR when she has the means to stack it up VERY quickly (basically, a bunch of low health minions for her to Q between). The second thing that is even more important is dodging her stun. If Irelia has her passive AND she lands her stun on you, there is nothing you can do to prevent death. If only ONE of those things is true (basically she lands her stun but starts from no passive stacks OR she has her stacks but missed her stun) then the winner of the fight will be the better player. It is worth it to flash her stun at times but ghost will allow you to dodge it easily. Try to understand what an Irelia is going to go for. If you have a low hp minion near you, and Irelia walks in range, you can prime your E to cancel her Q. This is INCREDIBLY difficult and you need to actually play Irelia as well as Darius in order to do this consistently but If you manage to cancel her Q, you basically insta win the fight. Conqueror is a MUST against Irelia, as you need to out fight her. Don’t just stand next to her and let her auto you, as she has more DPS than you thanks to her passive. Kite her, going in to AA and use your abilities. Try to make sure you land your Qs on her, as it will be very tricky when she has her Q up. One trick to do this is E and then immediately go for the Q. You should have enough time to land your Q on her before she can get in a position to avoid it. Because Irelia's rush BORK, it is an insanely good idea to go Steelcaps + Bramble.”
RivalOCE says “With botrk buffs I think this matchup is more Irelia favored. Riven can get outplayed pretty easily now and Irelia's first spike is a lot cheaper than it used to be. Aggress level 1 if she started E but be careful to not overtrade, if she gets her passive up she hard wins. Use your E to dodge her E.”
The Rock Titan says “"[Grasp, Doran's shield, E > W] - Start E lvl1 is good, so she can't auto you down
- A really good irelia can probably make this lane Medium difficulty
- She can get you chunked at like lvl1 and stay far away from her when she's about to hit 2 when you're still lvl1
- After that, she's just not a threat until she gets her first item.
- Get bramble and Max E and you can do some quick auto trades with her
- Get her pretty low, you can all in her
- Dodge her stun, it's really easy to dodge because you have extra movement speed with your Q
- She's gonna get the push on you (and that's good) because she wants to build up her passive stacks. Just don't fight her when she's fully stacked."”
Amvill says “You deal no damage to her since she can out heal, out push, and out duel your, all with just her Q. Her ult can stop you entirely, and her passive shreds you to bits. Your only saving grace is that she is easy to make mistakes as so you can punish her for making them.
Wit's end enjoyer”
The Real Fake says “Irelia wants to stick onto you and fight you, which is great as it allows you ramp up your Q and conqueror. Once you do ,you outdamage her significantly. As you get lower, Last Stand increases your damage. Also once you get to around half hp, if you have everything stacked up, you can activate W for huge healing during the fight. Only time she may be able to kill you is if she lands everything, and stacked up her passive beforehand while you have nothing stacked. If you dodge her E, you should never lose a fight against her. Dodging is relatively easy due to your constant movement speed buffs (E, phage passive, time warp tonic). You should be stronger than Irelia most of the game until very late.”
Rhoku says “Irelia is kinda like Darius. If she is stacking her passive up, you mostly want to stay away from her. If she has no stacks OR no way to quickly get her stacks, you win the fight. IF she has full stacks OR has a bunch of low hp minions to Q off of to instantly get her passive, then just back off. Just get as far away from the wave as possible while remaining in XP range. Her dps with passive is too much for you to handle. Try to dodge her stun thing as if she lands it, she will win the trade and/or the all in. Her sustain is also a lot better than you so keep an eye out for that. On the bright side, once you hit level 6, she is free food. Just R her and murder her. She will have no minions to stack her passive off of and you will be WAY stronger. Just make sure to be mindful of the fact that her Q always lands her BEHIND you. Dodging her stun makes it cleaner and stops her from outplaying you and getting away so try not to get hit by it.”
maxlid3 says “She is really strong in every stage of the game. You can only poke her early level 1-2. If she hits her stun and has 5 stacks she is basically unkillable. After level 6 she can engage even easier. She can also dodge your W really easy. Keep your distance and buy antiheal.”
FeedLaneGetCaryd says “(Bone Plating+Armor+DBlade) Get Steelcaps early. Bramble if behind. You win after lvl 9. When Irelia marks you, don't E, until she Q's you twice. If Irelia starts Q, punish with E.”
jmp_01_ says “Take Conqueror. Definetly rush Bramble Vest and Blade of the Ruined King. Try to E her while she dashes and punch her as much as you can. Don't blow your grit - just use it when she is stunned. Try to freeze the wave under your turret - she won't be able to do much about it and avoid fighting her when she has a full-stacked passive.”
lulw says “She is a very strong duelist with her non stop buffs. You can dash her stun and you can trade very well into her. If she q's to a minion near you auto q her. Try to windwall her r at 6. You can windwall her E. If you int your lane once its over this champ is so broken. (Also if your fighting Ghuchi on irelia dont worry lol.)”
GarenteedDamage says “Irelia gains stacks from killing your mist walkers with her Q. If you have 4 mist walkers a good Irelia can chain kill them all and get full stacks. Once Irelia hits 4 stacks she does ridiculous damage so watch out!”
Psychopathic Top says “Irelia flourishes off her passive stacking. This is what differs from good and bad Irelia players. A 5 stack passive Irelia will just nuke you in terms of damage, so do not engage if her passive is gouged. In the early game, level 2 should be well respected. Level 2, Irelia gains access to her E, and if she hits it and stuns you, your basically ded. It does an insane amount of damage with double Q dash + full passive, Nasus will likely be 100-0ed. Keep your distance level 2 and let her shove in. Post level 6 and sheen, just make sure her passive falls off before engaging. At this point, with around 100 stacks, you should have more damage than her, but that does not mean you can disrespect the passive damage. She can also kite you by dashing on minions, so make sure she fully engages or steps up too far before all in. Do note that vs super good irelias (from the ones ive faced- tenacity/generalsniper) there's basically nothing to do as the wave will be frozen on if they play it properly, since this matchup requires the Nasus player to be better than the Irelia, but that's not possible in challenger, in a situation where both players play almost perfectly, therefore even, therefore Irelia wins. ”
DippyDan says “Play aggressive and bully her early, forcing her to think twice before stacking her passive. Punish her whenever you can and it should be an easy lane. Riposte completely counters her so make sure it lands. TIPS:  Short trade when he doesn't have passive stacks  Parry her stun or ult.  Stay near your dying minions to prevent stacks.”
Hecki says “You definetly thought that Fiora would be up here, right? Well in that case i have to dissappoint you because Irelia rightfully deserves her own place in the [EXTREME]-Tier. If you didn't ban her because you like beeing bullied then expect an almost impossible laning phase. Any Irelia with hands will try to freeze so that you overextend and she can easily jump on you and auto attack you to death. Almost every Irelia player I've encountered tried to all-in me as soon as I appeared for a fraction of a second on their screen. So if you decide not to ban her here are some tipps of surviving that creature. Get either Executioner's Calling or Bramble Vest first item + Plated Steelcaps. Let her push the wave so that you can freeze in front of your tower and ONLY trade when you are near your tower. ”
fishybearo says “Renekton had been known as an Irelia counter for a while now, and I can agree with that to a certain extent. In this matchup I often take Ignite to reduce the Irelia's early healing, then rush Bramble Vest to create 1 v 1 kill pressure in lane. Renekton excels if he can shut down Irelia's snowball by dominating her in lane. The new Irelia changes made her much more of a nuisance because she has to hit less of her skills to get full stacks, but Renekton can often times use the same strategy as before to take her down and deny her outplay potential.”
Rocking Masterock says “Extremely strong at low levels, but falls off a bit once you get Bramble Vest and Plated Steelcaps, make sure to not get caught when her passive if full stacked, do short trades. ”
Yumi Project says “Irelia is a broken monster came out from hell to destroy bruiser. Dont extend to much trade and rush antiheal because is first back will be of course vamp. You can avoid her stun with your W. DONT ENGAGE WHEN SHE HAVE 5 STACK!”
Unmasked Kayle says “[Standard runes, bone plating] Watch her passive stacks, don't ever let her jump on you with stacked passive. Dodge her stun. Do not walk through her R blades. If she freezes you can't get close to the wave or she just kills you. Go steal exp midlane or ask for jungler help. You outscale if you manage to not fall too behind in experience.”
BCKTHUNDR says “SH*T ON HER LES GOOOOOOO
beware of her when she has full passive stacks she hurts.
generally dont be too aggro when there are lots of low health minions on your side as she can just dash to all of them, get her passive instantly, and then somehow beat you.
You beat her when she doesn't have her passive though.
Late game irelia can be really scary so try to close out the game early on by getting objectives when you kill her in lane (roam down to mid to help, push the outer turret, get herald, etc.)”
TXK_ says “A strong duelist who snowballs incredibly well, has sustain and does mixed damage. Avoid fights when she's approaching her 5 stack passive or if your wave has low hp for Irelia to Q to. Ulting limits her mobility by stripping waves away from the fight. Irelia's eventual Wit's End makes her nigh unkillable for Mordekaiser.”
Alan234 says “Any rune is fine.
However because the matchup is GIGA snowbally. I recommend grasp+domination. I further recommend putting atleast 3 points into Q as most of her Damage is auto attack based. You will run into mana issues with this build, which is why I recommend a lost chapter Item early, usually Liandries because Irelia goes Goredrinker nowadays. Its a real skill matchup that tests how good your movement and poking is, which is why I enjoy the lane (however when I lose I'm sad) If you die lvl 4ish she will freeze the lane and you will be sad, so dont die. Be mindful of her preparing minions to dash for to engage on you. Dodging e is very important, as its a major source of her dmg. Lvl 6 a lot of irelias want to all in so either flash it or call your jgl. Lvl 7-11 you win all ins with ignite and even later on you outscale her in value in teamfights”
aurus666lol says “You can escape from her E by ur E, but she has strong all- ins. Try to not give her free mark for resets on Q. She can easly kill you at lvl 1 so remember that and take Q for blind or W for movement speed, your choice.”
JaxIsAHobo says “A pretty even matchup, most lower rank Irelia's struggle vs Jax. Your entire lane depends on basically dodging her stuns, and not fighting her when she is fully stacked on her passive. Fairly simply lane. ”
MrShykun says “MATCHUP SKILLED EN VOTRE FAVEUR. ESQUIVEZ SON E A TOUT PRIT. NE L'AFFRONTEZ PAS SI SON PASSIF EST STACK. NE LA FIGHTEZ PAS DANS UNE GROSS VAGUE DE MINIONS ALLIES ET ESSAYEZ DE TOUCHER VOS Q. SI VOUS AVEZ DU MAL TABIS + ARMURE RONCIERE SONT BIEN CONTRE ELLE. Irelia n'est pas un matchup compliqué. Elle ne peut pas rester a votre corp a corp elle va essayer de kite sauf si elle prend ignite la lane devrait être a votre avantage. Cette lane snowball énormément donc essayez de ne pas mourir face a elle. Quand vous l'affrontez pensez a deux points important en permanence 1)son passif 2)esquivez son stun (le E) si elle a son passif de stack et vous touche avec le E vous êtes probablement mort. Essayez de la kite car elle a plus de dps que vous essayez de toucher vos Q un petit tips car si vous utilisez votre Q elle va Q pour être a votre corp a corp dans ce cas faite plutôt E+Q instantanément elle ne pourra pas dodge. Irelia va surement rush botrk donc n'hésitez pas a prendre de l'anti heal et des tabis.”
Iczere says “Can easily close the gap on you and deal a lot of damage. If she is attacking you, blind and kite her, while making sure to dodge her E or R, because if you get hit by one of the two, you're dead.”
Prezibogen says “Skill Matchup.
Don't get caught Level 2 by her jumping to you.
Don't get engaged when she has 3 or 4 Stacks on her passive, increasing her attack speed.
Rush first bramble against her healing and then steelcaps against her auto attack damage.”
Shourdy says “This is perma-ban champ, play safe and beg your jungler to help you. Lv1 u slow push the first waves and crash the 3 waves undertower, back get a longsword and freeze if possible. If u didn't get prio, Lv2 she will try to E or Q-E u so dodge with ur E or sidestep. Lv3 onward play safe and beg for your jungler.
Don't poke she out heals ur poke after vampiric specter and rush Steelcaps and bramble. U can Q backwards to predict her Q and use 3rd Q to run so if she tries to go in u can trade back.”
SmollJon4s says “Skill matchup. You can E all her damage away. Do not let her roam at any time of the game as she will feed herself on your botlane making her snowball out of control. Ignite recommended to decrease her heal from her Q.”
Bombabo says “WATCH OUT FOR HER LEVEL 2 ALL-IN! Her insane mobility alone makes this a hard matchup, as she can play around almost any playstyle. If she is stupid and just stays right on top of you, you can shred her. Smart players will capitalize on your positioning with their E or R”
Vandenelis says “don't fight her when she has full stacks. when she gets her vampiric scepter she can heal from no hp to full hp in one to two waves, so if you want to kill her then you have to run her down, later on she cant kill you because of your tankyness”
Warwick de Crocs says “Press - Lâmina - Flash + TP / Abusa do Press, level 1 tu bate nela, cuidado com o Conq e principalmente as stacks da passiva dela. Preste bastante atenção na wave pra não tomar outplay na cura/dano dela. Colete espinhos é uma boa opção de compra. Fun fact: um E perfeitamente utilizado pode cancelar o Q dela, colocando ele em CD.”
DarkyTheReal says “I would say it's a skill matchup, depends on the wave, If the wave is pushing towards her, you win the trades and all in, If the wave is pushing towards you, you lose the trades, because she has minion advantage and can one shot your minions to stack passive.”
apkibum says “IRELIA. HEALS. She heals for days! The same with Dr. Mundo, she does high damage and has good range + a stun and will outheal your damage even with grevious. She is a good perma ban option for the lane. ”
SettVEVO says “You don't fight if she has 4 stacks, you don't fight if you missed your E stun W combo. Easy matchup for the rest of it though. You do much more damage for half of the effort she needs to do hers. Get antiheal fast and win. You win level 1 as long as she doesn't get five stacks or hits her E. Always be mindful of your minions health with her. You can ult before her E stun lands to deny it. Mid to late game she will probably splitpush and you can win it if you have thornmail and land your abilities.”
Rodos says “Im adding Irelia to the minor scale. I wouldnt add her at all but i have seen some people banning her when they play illaoi. Fiora its not a such difficult enemy. Just wait until you hit 3 level. When playing illaoi you will play near and around your passive/tentacles. So at 3 level she has not big possibilities to beat you. Especially if you select to play with ignite it will be more succesfull against her. ”
Byku2506 says “Basics to play against Irelia is to freeze lane and try to catch her, dont fight with her when she have 3 stacks, she can 1v1 you every time. It will be better if you will wait for enemy jungler or beat her before she reach 3 level.”
SleepyFawn says “Irelia has hyper mobility making it difficult to land your skills on her and can lock you down with her ult and stun.
Additionally, she has a lot of sustain in lane to shrug off your poke damage.
Worth a ban.”
Fryx says “A good Irelia will make use of your low mobility and go for aggressive plays. Keep it cool early she will try to kill you. You will have the upper hand later if you both get to the wave at the same time since she will want to stack her passive first. Make use of that to harass her and get away after that. You will eventually see openings to punish her. Good Irelias will make it hard for you, it is all about skill this lane.
Take Grasp here and Max E!”
wff010 says “After the rework, the matchup SHOULD still be easy with a few caveats. If she DOES manage to get a lead, you are pretty doomed. However, you should do your best to keep her as functional as a cannon minion. At the beginning of lane, deny her cs and make sure to punish her everytime she tries. Save your E W or else she'll dodge your W. As long as she has no stacks, you should hard win.”
LoLReal says “Irelia isn't a hard lane. Be careful levels 1 & 2 where she is pretty strong, and be mindful of her fully stacked passive. Other than that we win trades at all points. Build tabi and destroy her post 6 with R. ”
SanLourdes says “Irelia can easily burst you down in extended fights. Her E can reset your Q, and she has infinite dashes as long as she can kill the target. Much like Yasuo, don't fight her when there are minions around. Try and bait out her E before you use your Q. Her early game power was nerfed, but she still remains strong, especially once she scales. Thornmail and Plated Steelcaps are very important in this matchup.”
CucumberSandwich says “Similar to Riven, this matchup depends mainly on the skill of the enemy. If Irelia lands her stun with full Q stacks, you are probably dead. Her Q also allows her to dodge your Q. However most Irelia's are average at best, making the matchup winnable she messes up. Dodging her E will usually allow you to win the trade. ”
Viego99 says “after mini rework easy for early game if she use q use your q aa to poke him dodge her e with sidestep or w . use your flash to dodge r .you outscale him but she have a better mid game if you not ahead. yourteam fight is better .”
Lost Chapter says “Just dodge her E with your E or W and fight her inside your W. Try to kite with your E or take short trades with your Q + E combo. You should win this matchup unless the irelia is just way better. Watch out for her Blade of the Ruined King power spike! She will shred you after she gets it. Rush bramble ”
Jaori says “If she tries to stack her passive at level 1, attack her. If she tries to fight, it means that she's already dead. Always use your ult while standing in the range of king's domain - it boosts your healing up by 25%.”
ForgottenProject says “This is a fun Match-up. She has a stun that easy to predict and parry and she can be harassed easily.
You beat her in lane hard.
Whenever she Qs onto a minion near you, you Q her for free damage.
Dont be scared to trade with her as long as you can proc vitals. Parry her E it's super obvious. Dont Fight her when she has her Passive & Conqueror stacked.”
dissociate says “I will revisit this matchup as soon as possible, as I had a lot of unfortunate circumstances my first match against an Irelia.
Dropping a W on yourself can help deter him from jumping on you with her E as it's a free stun, but Irelia snowballs very hard if she gets a lead in general, so always play the lane safe unless you get first blood.
Rush Bramble Vest into Bami's Cinder, and use the regular buiild.”
turtlehamstercroc says “Look for long trades level 1 to get her low, then use w and e to run her down level 2 and hopefully kill her, if you don't get a lead really early on then laning phase will be tough”
SavagePridestalker says “Tank Rengar is really strong into Irelia, he can tank up most of her damage and survives her strongest part (early game) pretty well. Once you get a few items each, she'll fall off, because she isn't a good mid-late game champion.”
NxMate says “Keep your distance and poke her down. If you can hit your E she is most likely dead or will go back. Don't let her engage you and if she does just try to fake her with w and run to the Tower.”
oogoogerson says “Irelia is a really strong attack damage 1v1 duelist. Avoid trading with Irelia when she is at full stacks. She can easily kill you with her ultimate at full stacks. Wait until her stacks fall off and then go in to zone her from CS. Take Ignite for her healing or teleport if you think she will beat you.”
Safolet says “This is the confrontation that I hate the most as Gnar, because it is practically impossible to win the line if Irelia plays well, because she has everything to counter Gnar, Irelia's E can be dodged with Gnar's own E, but the passive Irelia's is amazing to counter because it's easy for her to get close to Gnar while in mini form, since she has the R that can be used after or before the E so that Gnar can no longer escape, and Irelia's Q can be great because it can be reset on minions as it gets closer to taking down Gnar. Also, Irelia has her W, which reduces the physical damage of enemies aimed at her, and Gnar is physical damage. The way to counteract Irelia a bit being Gnar, is to play full under tower so that your jungler can help you and thus kill Irelia, but remember that if they try to kill her while you are miniGnar, she may kill them both for a little that Gnar resists without his Mega form.”
El Cucaracha says “Một con đĩ khốn nạn thiệt sự, nhốt nó vào lồng ư ?, nó Q ra. Thả pet ra cắn nó ư ?, nó Q chết mẹ tụi pet và tích Q nhanh hơn. Con này là phải ban khi chơi yorick, 100% cần phải ban, còn lỡ không ban nó, thì tất cả những gì các chị làm được đó là biến cái toplane thành máy farm cho con đĩ này thôi”
AlanVenator says “Do not get fooled by her winrate. Can make your life impossible if she gets ahead. Try to punish her mistakes and trade when she doesn't have the passive. Remeber that her Q puts her behind you, so you can land your E easily if you time it well.”
SethPRG says “If they get 5 stacks, you will probably lose. If they can dash to minions to escape an all-in and heal, you will probably lose. If they ult you into an E stun, you will probably lose. Wave management is key in this fight, but I can't really teach you that in a matchup guide too well, so the best I can say for that in a short sentence is watch the caster minions, make sure Irelia can't burst them all in a Q chain. You can either freeze or stack a massive wave to slow push, she can't really walk up to fight you without having passive stacks. You quite literally win the AA competition. Trinity is the best here just for the overall damage, kill them before they can do anything. I'd suggest bush cheesing level 1, and prioritize dodging their E pre 6. If you can do this, even with 5 stacks, you have a decent chance at beating them, just don't try to run away, AA while side stepping back. You'll be surprised at your damage. If you ever get cornered in this matchup, just try to fight if you know you can't escape. That is probably the biggest mistake people make in this matchup, underestimating their damage. Anyways, past level 6 you can use your ult to not be affected by their E stun or ult slow, or to interrupt one of their Q dashes. In team-fights whenever they try to dash to your team or ult them, it's best to ult them away in response. Rushing Bramble is a must, Plated Steelcaps after if you're having a rough time, otherwise rush into Trinity Components starting with Sheen. They farm a lot easier than you though, so don't be surprised if they have a lead in gold, this champ is a natural CSer. ”
SpartanDumpster says “Any decent Irelia can hard stomp you, especially if they know how well they match up against Gnar. From my Experience, AP builds make difficult champs slightly easier to manage, though your build is no reason to let your guard down!”
joelspaho121 says “Skill matchup but slightly irelia favored.
D Blade start with sorc tree.
Bramble tabi rush mandatory.
The key to this matchup is to find the appropriate times to fight her and the best example would be to only fight her at 0 stacks and while her q is on cd so always save your E and use it while shes mid dash.On patch 11.14 her travel time on Q will be reduced significantly which makes timing its cancelling with E relatively easy.If you manage to do this successfully shes 100000% dead. Only look to fight her when there are no low health allied minions nearby because she can easily get some health back and get her stacks up to kill you. Also be aware that she can lower your damage because of her W. Good Irelia players are also going to dash inside of your Q when you first cast it so be really cautious. This matchup requires intense focus and has absolutely no room for mistakes because 1 death can turn the lane into a nightmare for you. Freezing is your best shot because not only do you deny her the ability to stack but you also kill her if she ever walks up for a last hit by popping ghost and since theres no allied minions on her way back to the tower she cant dash anywhere and get stacks which means she dies so ALWAYS freeze the first chance you get.”
El Leon Gnar says “Luckily Irelia is not meta, but when she is in meta I ban her over Cam. She'll have kill pressure on you until mid/late game, like v.s. Cam your best bet is to just give up some cs and farm far away.”
Lucas9000 says “You win level 1 here, just zone her out so she cant stack up her passive. Irelia has a high skill floor, so 1 misplay can cost her the lane, but on the other hand the skilled irelia player will teleport in on minions to dogde your abilites. Should be an easy matchup for Fiora.”
Solanne says “Irelia is another threat, mainly just because she's a strong champ. She can also dodge your abilities, so take care. She's not as high as Vayne as if you can predict her movement and land your E's, you're good.
Also sometimes you get lucky and get a first-time Irelia so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”
DaSticks says “Don't get hit with her E as it gives her a dash reset! Auto attack her when she goes for creeps, If you attack move command her you can target her before or when she is dashing for a creep and automatically auto-attack when she is in range.”
Kaizin says “This matchup is pretty easy, you can take Conqueror if it fits better against the enemy team, but Press The Attack will make short work of Irelia. Take short burst trades with E, Q, W. Bramble vest early is very strong as her main damage source is auto attacks. Be careful of her level 1, make sure to watch her passive stacks, it's okay to lose a few minions as long as you're within XP range.”
I am so chill says “A good irelia can setup your minions to dodge your q s and w try to poke her and stay away from your minions so she cant q q q them.Avoid trading with her if she has her passive 5 stack.Use ur e wisely as she will try to use her e to proc 2 q s on you.I recommend you buying grievous wound items early.”
ApollonATH says “Skill matchup in your favor . Dont fight her when she has 5 stacks on passive and dont fight if she dodges your E. After botrk she can 1v1 you . Dodging her E and R with your R is really effective . Anti heal recommended ”
SirGRC says “Worth a Ban: Yes
A good Irelia will just make the game be over before the 15. Try and dodge her stun as it gives her a free Q. Her W will make her take reduced damage and will do some damage if she hits you with it, so be careful. Do not be afraid to build an hourglass. Also, remember it is better to be down 20-30 CS than to be up 2-3 deaths.”
Humitaxx says “For any Sett build irelia is an easy match up as long as you know when to use your E and your W, but it's way easier as a tank, since everything the Irelia does to you, it will transform into your weapon, so make the fights as long as possible and then Stun with E and quickly use your charged W true damage, you want to also get some healing reduction, since a good Irelia can outplay you easily and make you waste your builtup grit, make sure to back whenever you have around 800 gold to buy a Bramble Vest, since it's highly necessary later on, to stop her from healing too much in longer trades.”
deathwalker7119 says “Probably one the Easiest matchups, pre-6 parry her E and don't walk up when she has 5 stacks, you will just absolutely shit on her if you do these things. Post 6, dodge the E with your Q and parry the R IF possible, otherwise just parry her Q dash into you after her ult, and simply avoid fighting her when shes at 5 stacks.”
Nekosett says “One of the easiest matchups you can just beat her at all levels use e w with a stun to ensure your w lands you scale pretty well and will be better in teamfights then her as well its a free laning phase and she still wont be better late then you just dont be behind on too much cs as she is very easy to cs with ”
Womsky says “Scaling set up, dorian blade start, its a free lane if you dont mess up, if she ever starts Q early and goes melee to the wave just beat her ass up if you have fury, the only time u got to respect her is when she hits lvl 3, after 6, if u are even with her she is easily donzo, just watchout for two things, her 5 stacks passive, and the possiblity of her kiting you with your minions, its hard to find good irelleas, over all, easy lane”
tibs2 says “Bramble any% speedrun. You hit the jackpot!!! This match up is so free. Id be a little careful in laning phase if Irelia has 5 passive stacks but if you make it out of laning phase with 0 deaths Irelia will be unable to play mid-late game teamfight due to your w.”
aWhiner says “Irelia has so many options to close the gap against you. The key here is to keep an eye on your minions that are low on health. Irelia’s Q will reset if she kills a minion with it. You absolutely have to dodge her E because it applies her mark on you. Overall, you want Irelia to push in this matchup as much as possible. Keep your minion wave close to your tower and ask for ganks.”
Noodles912 says “Freeze all game long. Use W to dodge her R and E. Just keep the wave at your turret at all times. Never fight her with passive. Use Q to stay healthy. If you are pushed up, run if your minions are low. You outscale her. This lane needs a lot of practice.”
PiscesPomf says “SKILL MATCH UP IN YOUR FAVOR
Irelia is a skilled champ, and you will have to be alert. Parry her E, it's easy. If you parry it at lvl 2/3, GO IN ! You will destroy her. But care, if she is stacking her passive she will deal a lot of damages. Try to engage her when you succesfully parry a E, then go in and kill her. If her passive is stacked, you should wait before engaging. You can also parry her R if she does not have her E.”
teemodumbstupid says “Like Rengar, she is a lane bully and will beat you early. Do not go E max into Irelia because it is useless against her healing. Rush bramble, and you will win when you have Sheen and Lucidity boots.”
Urgodzilla says “Usually Irelia players are very cocky, let her push you and try to flip her under your tower when she uses her E. Respect her passive (it is stronger than Darius's passive, trust me). Don't feed her early game or you will never recover.”
Laserholic says “Generally these mechanical champions are skill match-ups, however you're likely not versing Faker and can take advantage of missed Stuns by dodging with your E or W. Level 6, keep close watch of Irelia, and be ready to reactively W against her Ult !!”
Oskarl3 says “she can reduce your q damage with her w, stun you out of it, or q out of range. in addition to having a very strong early game. the stridebreaker build will help you lock her down but in general stay away”
jmp_01_ says “Late game monster. Has insane damage output, mobility and a strong 1v1. Make sure you beat her early, but avoid fighting when her passive - Ionian Fervor is stacked. Take Bramble Vest and Plated Steelcaps.”
Draconic56 says “Irelia is an easy matchup.She can dash around to minions and dodge your Q's but she still wont stand much of a chance. Just don't fight her when she has full stacks because she WILL chunk you down and possibly kill you. Try to dodge her E.If you get a pull on her Q her before she dashes away. Once you get your ult try to ult after she does so her ult won't be in the death realm if you don't it won't be a problem.You should still be able to kill her easily but if you step on her ult you will be slowed and she will escape.”
Kokob5 says “So long as you don't fight her when she has passive stacked you'll win fights and trades. When she finishes bork you need to respect the power spike even if you're ahead or she'll get a shutdown.”
negoZoma69 says “Let the lane push and try to freeze near your turret. She out trades you hard at all stages of the game, especially AD Neeko. After 6 it becomes similiar to Akali, if she freezes you can't approach the wave and will need jg help/roam. AP Neeko with ignite can oneshot reckless Irelia players that don't build mr though.”
Hesychia says “She is just too mobile.
Try not to trade with her near your minions or she will have mobility advantage.
Do not try to trade her or all-in her if her passive is active or she will have Attack Speed advantage and kill you.
Try to kill her at "6" level, beware of her because she is a snowball character and can easily dominate your lane.”
Hesychia says “Yea, she is just too Mobile, You need to build some Armor before your Core Items after your first recall. So I recommend buying "Bramble Vest" since it gives you enough armor and Grievous Wound. Dodge her "E" or she'll win the trade. Whenever she tries to take CS with her "Q" use your "E" and punish her. she'll mostly go with short trades with you if she knows how to play against Darius. But if she doesn't you can kill her. Before 6 you have high chance to kill her. And beware that she is a snowball character. So If you die to her 1-2 times and if you don't have any kills (if she has more kills than you/if she has gold difference/level difference), do not trade her. Ask your jungler to gank you. Do not try to trade her near your minions as she will be jus too mobile so you won't even reach her. Also NEVER EVER trade with her if her passive is active, as she will just kill you so easily you won't even make 5 stacks. Whenever she activates her passive, step back and wait her passive to be ended she'll probably push the lane. So you can freeze your lane undertower and make free kill for your jungler.”
Lost Robot says “Tahm's easiest matchup by far. Even Yuumi top lane would probably be more of a threat.
Seriously, one time League bugged out and I was stuck with >2000 ms ping and 1 FPS for the entire game, and I still won lane.
She just can't do damage to you. As soon as you get Bramble Vest, I would be legitimately impressed if you managed to die. Nobody else can really pull it off.
If you see Irelia go mid lane and you chose top lane, beg with your mid laner to swap temporarily. Offer to swap back after you get 2 or 3 or 50 kills. Then you'll be fed so you'll win top lane, and Irelia will be weak so your mid laner will win mid lane. Guaranteed win.”
Dorom says “I despise this champion just as much as Fiora. I can never decide who to ban, either Irelia or Fiora. This champion just stuns you with it's E and you can basically go AFK. Ignite is necesseary to get any kill pressure against this beast and if she gets an level up on you you're dead. Try to play agressive for level 2, it's a fight for who gets the level up quicker, then it's not that terrible unless you get hit by one thing. Seriously, stupid champion.”
SanLourdes says “An amazing matchup. Have fun with this one. The only thing to keep in mind is her passive stacks. Once fully stacked, she can burst you down, but other than that, you can bully her easily and even get fed if she doesn't know when to back off. You can Q out of her R as well if you have something to jump on.”
SpartanDumpster says “If you don't give her openings to close the distance, and use your W properly, then it can be tough for her to do anything. However, if you're too close to just ONE minion, which she dashes to and kills with her Q, then she'll get into your W's area and she massively out trades you with full stacks.”
jvr_ says “Just don't get perma freezed by this creature and you maybe won't fall so behind in gold that she's gonna easily dive you under turret. If you are on same level on gold you should be able to kill her if you have some healing reduction and hit every stack of R. Bramble Vest may be good option to build on start.”
JapaUwU says “She is just too mobile. Try not to trade with her near your minions or she will have mobility advantage. Do not try to trade her or all-in her if her passive is active or she will have Attack Speed advantage and kill you. Try to kill her at "6" level, beware of her because she is a snowball character and can easily dominate your lane.”
pioj12 says “INSTA BAN HER THERES NO COUNTERPLAY.
If you go against this champ I hope you have a lot of luck.
She has a lot of sustain thx to her Q for healing.
She wins all in even in mega all at lvl 3 and 6.
Just don play against her you need pretty stupid irelias to win the lane.
Runtley says “Irelia can be hard but not really if you play right. Almost all he dmg is auto's and dashes really all you have to do is blind her and run or shoot her down. You also want to bait her into using her stun then going in when its gone. Also poke her when she uses her W because she can't move.”
Zac Petista says “Muito fácil vencê-la a partir do 3. Não demore para fechar corta cura e tome muito cuidado quando ela fechar Rei destruído, ela estará em um spike muito difícil de segurar, mesmo com vantagem. Lembre-se de observar quantas stacks da passiva ela tem antes de tentar trocar.”
Pawn Sacrifice says “Irelia it's one of those champions with high mobility, what brings a certain ammount of dificulty to Urgot, but, if you are patience you will probably beat her... wait for the right time to use your E, don't miss it or you will be dead.”
Alekra says “Can go both ways. You can fight her pre lv 6 but after that be very careful. Dodging her E is crucial as it not only prevents the stun, but also a Q reset. You can bait her W with your Q. You can max Q here for short trades as her passive will win her most long trades.”
Erenando says “Many people would count her as a major threat, but her mobility and her amount of cc isn't quite enough to bring you down later on. Frozen heart is a good item to reduce her attackspeed. So go for it asap and build up some HP she also gets true damage by her passive and conquerer.”
Mainling says “62%+ winrate. Contest her stacking passive and ult her when she ults. You get value out of your ult but since she is suppressed while her ult duration ends her ult has no value. You can win off that alone.”
lulw says “You overpower her early game. If she dares to Q to a minion beside you, E her then all in her. Shes very strong with her 5 stacks. If you cannot dodge her E, try to stun her so you will both be stunned for the duration. You do a lot of damage early and she cannot take all that. You just out stat her in the laning phase. Shes pretty strong with items. First back plated steelcaps if you are even. ”
GrGamingTeo says “NEVER EVER fight Irelia with 6 stack or you loose 100%. Also always dodge her E and a good way of doing so is: run towards her dor 1 second then go to either your left or your right and you succesfully dodge her E. This matchup is impossible to beat is you don't rush Bramble Vest even if you are ahead of her because her healling is so extraordinary with her maxed stacks.”
Drumastermunch says “I'd say extreme juste because there is no room for mistake here, and she has more ways to punish you than a Darius. Respect her passive, punish a missed A or E, or a bad placement if you have lane prio. Don't ever die to her. If you take a lead, you'd be fine, even in late game you still can 1v1 her (tha's not gonna be easy though)”
Olaf Only says “Dont fight her if she has her passive stacked up.
Hold on to your Q's and focus more on Auto attacking her to death as landing axes can be difficult.
Irelia will die very fast if CC'd, so Olaf will generally be more useful in teamfights.
Bramble Vest - Must Buy!”
LunaticDancer says “Her Q can instantly kill all of your ghouls and buff her up to the point of winning any 1v1 with you. You need to be safe in this lane, and when you do go in, make sure to also immediately attack her, so she doesn't farm your ghouls for free. You do outpace her in mid-late game naturally though, so it's a tough lane, but beneficial in the very long run if you haven't already lost.”
Ravenborne says “Quite a easy matchup. Just permanently harrass her so she can not farm. Also stand infront of your minions so she can not get Q resets in. If she has her Passive stacked she will outtrade you. Simply stand back until the Passive Stacks run out.”
Kil4fun says “If she hits you with stun you're dead. Don't be anywhere near her for her level 2. She will push wave to get level 2 advantage and try to firstblood you. After that she will perma freeze and not let you play the game.”
Bear24 says “If she goes into your wave auto q her and you win the trades. Even after 6 you win. Make sure to stun and then jump cause she can dash out. If she is fed just q and run away. Late game 3 items and you have 3 items you probably lose 1v1”
ModelitoTime says “Depends on the Irelia really, most in lower elo cannot play Irelia well. Just do your best to avoid her E, if her 2nd E looks like it is going to hit you just use your E and dash out the way. ”
kingchas2 says “Play around her passive stacks. Once she is at 5 stacks you have to play way back to prevent her from Q'ing to a minion to get to you. Once she is 6 she will almost certainly try and all in, so call for a gank once that is about to happen.”
chokoryu says “Rush plated steelcaps+bramble and do not give a kill. Play it safe by farming and disengaging. Don't fight an irelia. Your minions are her escape from your Q, which can be dodged last second by her dashing to nearby minion. Her all-in beats your all-in unless you are fed in kills and cs. Still, would not risk it if the Irelia is a skilled player.”
xxskipskipxx says “You either trade before she can stack up her Q or you wait for lvl 2/3
Make sure you trade her with her Passive not being stacked!!
Dodge her E and dont use all your CDs(spells) when she is casting W!
You can dodge her R and also cancel her Q with your Q3!”
ineptpineapple says “Havent really played against her, but it should be a pretty easy matchup just root her and slow her when she goes in, and she will have no escape if she messes up a q. Approach velocity is really helpful because then she will never get away from you. And with your ult you can cancel any play she nearly makes.”
Raideru says “A good irelia can be tricky, be sure to not fight her in a big wave or when she has 5 stacks already, if she hits u with an e while u have your e up u automatically die. Sheen or Tabi is a good rush in this matchup.”
TioKirb says “This is a matter of early game, if she gets fed, you can do nothing to stop her, like, at all. But you can take the first and maybe second blood to make her useless. Avoid falling in her E and abuse her W. Her Ultimate ability is annoying, because you get slowed, but if you have the advantage it is just a nuisance.”
LeSocair says “Decently complicated matchup, it gets harder once she reaches 6, you'll need to create an early advantage against her and you'll win pretty easily, but do it before that, she scales pretty well really fast!”
sauronkaiser says “Probably the biggest Yorick counter. Not only extremely strong in duels, but also her Q can oneshot all your ghouls instantly while charges her passive. A retarded interaction riot never fixed. I will not give advice on this matchup as this is permaban for me. My recomendarion is to ban her or if you get her as enemy, just dodge the game. Theres a chance the player is bad and wont use the ghouls interaction, but imo the risk is not worth.”
RedNBlue says “Dodge her stun and your good, don't let her stack up her passive on the minions, if you don't know what her passive is it is when she uses abilities on minions she gets more attack speed in stacks and she can get up to five stacks.”
Ramixx says “Same like fiora. If played correctly both sides can kill each other. Something that happens a lot is I will play too far up and she will kill me. Then I end up outscaling her anyway with bramble and beating her. Just know that if she managed to get more than 3 kills early you lose hope of 1v1ng her unless shes that bad.”
narsil reforged says “Pegue PTA+Ignite
.Não tem.Nenhuma.Situação.Em que.Ela te mate.No 1v1.Mesmo Stackada.
A aplicabilidade gostosa do pick de Warwick top vem em situações exemplares como nessa matchup. pegue colete espinhoso. Ela pode literalmente procar conquistador, stackar no e e te ultar antes de você começar a dar dano, e você vira a matchup se tiver mitigado um pouquinho de dano no e. Coloque pressão de lane e fique atento às oportunidades de roaming, tomando cuidado pra não deixar ela free farm, pois com o mínimo de recurso bons jogadores de Irelia fazem um estrago danado com um TP bot ou coisa parecida”
KillMeMyFriend says “This lane Can go realy good or realy bad. Don't be close to her when she has stacked passive and E ready. Alaso avoid being close to your low health minions and try poking her whenever you can. If she is far way and uses E on you, you can easily dodge it with W burst of speed.”
iZeal says “Do not fight her when she has her passive stacked up or when she is around enough minions to stack it up quickly! Irelia has terrible disengage and if she can't stack up her passive she won't have enough damage to deal with you. Try to dodge her E and use your E to setup a guaranteed Q if her Q is still up as she will otherwise easily dodge your Q sweetspot.
Beware of completed Blade of the Ruined King.
DBlade, Ninja Tabis!, Phage.”
bocchicken says “Minor threat EARLY, if she makes it to 3 items she will de_stroy you. You can use your E as her stun goes off to negate most of it's duration. Careful for her max passive stacks when engaging.”
NoxianBlood says “Irelia is good match up if the one is playing her doesn't have any experience with her, because a good Irelia plays with her Passive and all ins you dealing magic damage per hit, so I recommend going armor and magic resist if you are vs her, but once you get so tanky she will not deal any damage to you thanks to your massive health pool and flat resistances, just try to land a full Charge Q when you see her Fail her Q dash or when you see her use it twice on you, Stunning Irelia Helps allot to reduce the threat that she will give to your teamates, don't feed her cause she tends to snowball due to her items are essential to make her work well, Also be careful she has a quick stun that she will use to give her a stack of passive and interrupt your Q channel, she will mostly like all in you when she gets you with that stun, if she stuns you, don't trade back off and reposition your self and try to stun her when her stun's on cooldown, remember also to get a heal cut since she heals to full hp from low to every minion killed with her q consider that when fighting her when she has minions around her.”
byThiagus says “Se puede usar ignite, en este match tambien espada de doran y segunda pagina de runas. No la dejes cargar su pasiva, zoneala desde nivel 1. A partir de midgame no podes pelear con ella cerca de una wave de minions salvo que estes extremadamente ahead debido a que este champ nefasto se cura toda la vida spameando q en minions y no le podes pegar basicos pq te baila una locura. NO PELEES SI TIENE SU PASIVA, Es mas fuerte que la tuya”
Stijnzxz says “Like Fiora a great 1v1 but due her passive she can outdmg u so keep her Q stack in mind and use her Q stack as bait so u can E and Q in her face for good trades if u cant.. just ask ur JG for assist.”
Boblet says “Play forward level 1, retreat under tower level 2, look for opportunities past that. If you can get ahead she will loose unless she starts a fight with her passive stacked at least to 4 OR she hits you with the stun.”
Leukasdf says “Dodge her stun and you'll probably win. If she has ignite, ask for a gank since you literally can't do anything against ignite as Aatrox. Poke her a lot early and try going for an all in at 6.”
AWierdShoe says “The single most important thing versus her early on is to trade before she gets to stack up her passive. With the passive stacked up she can just chop you down and kill you, but without it you’re free to take short but really efficient trades whenever she goes for a last hit (starting level 1). And with every good early trade her opportunities to contest for the lane gets less and less. If you play the first 2 levels correctly it then shouldn’t matter if you fail to dodge one of her stuns, since she won’t be able to all in you from it anyway.
I Am Goliath says “Another matchup that can snowball if you let her free farm or play to scared, play around her W and her E as much as you can. Watch your minions hp to predict if she is going to Q to that minion and try to Q her everytime she does that. When she activates W try to backout and then all in once it's over. Also if she get's a bork do not fight her. You outscale her in teamfights very hard.”
TrinityForceYasuo says “Level 1 stay close to your front line minions so you can zone her from them. If she still goes to take them poke with AA and Q. Level 2 be careful she can all in you there, do not get hit by her stun or you might be dead, the safest time to go in for a trade is at level 3 when you will have your W up so she will get denied. Some good irelia players do their E against yasuo horizontale which is the least expected way. If they do it try to react on the second part. Predict her R if you can or watch for the short animation. Again freeze against her so you can build a cs lead and force her to do mistakes.”
NickCola Tesla says “Just a very annoying matchup altogether. No one I know actually enjoys fighting against Irelia, so you're not alone if you completely despise the champion. Talk about jack of all trades: Hybrid Damage- drain tank Burst High Move speed diver plus on-hit anti tank Self Peel assassin champion. Irelia behaves in a similar manner to Wukong; you do not want to have her in a position where she has control over the lane, since she can snowball incredibly easy. If this happens, she will stack her Ionian Fervor passive, granting her increased attack speed and on-hit magic damage.
Having this happen repeatedly without you being able to retaliate is what will lose you the lane. The problem with being able to contest Irelia is her insane mobility. If she hits you with Flawless Duet, you risk getting chunked out and pushed out of lane. You need to use your mana sparingly, but spend just enough to punish her with a well placed Q if she gets greedy for minions. Since she's going to be in melee range, take Grasp of the Undying. Build Plated Steelcaps and Bramble Vest and try to contest her mid game scaling. If you die in lane, just play extremely safe and not die again, Irelia snowballs so easily it's unbelievable, and she will actually 1v9 the entire game.”
StrikeX114 says “While her high mobility and damage may be her greatest assets, her greatest threat to you is her Flawless Duet (E). Make sure to keep from getting caught out, and you can mitigate much of the threat she poses.”
Saarlichenbog says “Irelia is falls into the exact same category as the aforementioned. She must sustain through her passive and use her Q on minions constantly/land her E to close the gap on Kalista. For Kalista to win the matchup, the main focus of the lane should be utilising your insanely fast wave clear to stop her from stacking her passive and jumping on top of you. From there, she has almost no presence which can be easily taken advantage of.”
Captain Dantems says “Sempre coloque um barril no seu pé e quando ela usar o Q em você ou para farmar o exploda e use sua passiva nela, tente evitar o stun dela e guarde seu W para usar quando estiver com pouca vida. Grasp inspiração. Poção Corrupta.”
ItsPaulygon says “This is a fair skill match up, try to stay away from her stun. And avoid using Q a lot. Once she misses her stun, you can trade with her. But be careful of fighting with her for too long, her passive can be troublesome for you.”
open_48 says “
skilled matchup. Rush bramble vest and tabi. respect his charged passive. He can dodge the Q with his Q. To get him hit, go E + Q.
pay attention to the life of your minions. He can load the passive in a snap by using the Q on all of them.”
Klappy says “- Q+Pasiva en early cuando use su Q en los primeros 3 minions, pero alejate del rango de su Q, si llega a 4 stacks, pierdes
- No dudes en usar tus habilidades para esquivar su E
- Ella gana tradeos largos, entonces trata de mantener la wave cerca de tu torre
- Usa tu W para esperar a que se vaya su marca si logra darte su E o R”
TheMightyNinja says “It is an easy matchup early in the game, you can set her behind by using empowered attacks on her whenever she tries to last hit minions, do not let her stack her passive/farm. It is best if you can freeze at your turret since pushing will make you vulnerable to gank.
Master your wave management / map pressure since she can catch up to you pretty fast later in the game. ”
RankOneZesin says “Irelia is a threat for rengar top laners cause of here passive attack spead + true dmg also + e and +r so the only think you can do win lane vs irelia is dodging e and try to kill here before 6 cause if she hits r on you are dead anyways. also if she buy tabis feel free to try the tank build and not the assasin. The only think you can vs irelia is too have a good heavy trade lvl 2-3 also you rush ingite to kill here and perma freez the wave cause she will need to grap some minios+gold and it's a good gank for your jungler and also free lane for you.”
GLP1 says “A good irelia can make your life impossible, you will rely a lot on getting your Q's right and trying to evade her E stun with your E.
at level 6 irelia has a lot of advantage over kill pressure on you”
wolfclaw3812 says “As a mostly AP champion, Irelia's main defensive move is useless. Don't get stunned, and Irelia will get poked out of lane by you eventually. I recommend on-hit if you think you can beat her, and AP if you can't. ”
Nicklstherealone says “She has Outplay Potential but if you dodge her E (Stun) you can always trade just dont let her get 5 Stacks on Passive if she does she can kill you. So just E if she wants to dash on Minions. ”
pedrohnasc says “The worst matchup for Aatrox in my opinion. Don't let Irelia hit the E on you, otherwise you're screwed. She'll be able to dodge your Q's, and you won't be able to damage her. If I were you, I would ban Irelia.
Pyroen says “At level 2 she can gap close and take down Kayle very quickly. But she will also likely push the wave to do so. Look appealing enough for a dive at level 6 and slow her with your Q under tower and ult to survive and you will probably come out alive!”
Nodon says “hard level 1/2 but that's it this is a stand in for all auto attack focused toplaners you just poke them down and w them whenever they try to fight you and eventually they will get frustrated take a bad fight and die because you are still tanky in your ult ”
IJustWannaCuddle says “Another high mobility champ that can move around and dodge your Pops and W passive. Allowing her to push lane and safely farming until 6 will be your best path. Keeping her under your tower and catching her dashing onto a minion in range to pop her off a E into tower will be your best opportunity to trade with her. Any high mobility champs are a rough match up for Tanky boy. ”
Raphi0216 says “Don't fight her when she has her passive fully stacked. It's impossible to hit your E on her when there are low-HP minions around. If there are no minons around, she's basically a free kill.”
daito Okami says “Probably one of the easiest akali matchups just poke her when she goes for farm with q and use your movement speed to dodge her e. Don't go in if your shroud is on cd and she has stacked pasivs.”
FPSpsychoYT says “Another strong threat for Quinn, save your E for after her Q onto you. You can also cancel her Q with your E if you time it correctly. Dodge her E at ALL costs. If you're mid lane consider banning her, however if you're top ban Malphite.”
Time1Save says “Very prebuffing champion, incredibly strong in duels, you cannot fight her in 5 stack. Poke her and try to Dodge her E, after 6 LVL in any case do not try to kill her 1 on 1 without your tower, it is worth retreating if she gets E\R. And rush a heal cut. But as long as you play with an advantage, you have to give your team an advantage as well .”
Sylrath says “Como con Fiora, una Irelia normalilla o buena no te dará problemas; en cambio una que se conozca perfectamente el matchup y sea MUY buena, va a hacer que acabes 0/10 en fase de líneas. Hará freeze y en el momento que te acerques, morirás. Dependerá de tu ELO y tu habilidad individual banearla o no.”
Colbasz says “Harass her when she dashes in for minions with your Q and E. Try to dodge her stun, and keep your distance if she has her passive stacked. After you get lvl 6 it gets easier, however you still need to dodge her ult and E if you want to have a chance.”
Delvoid says “The bonus damage to shields makes this match up difficult to trade in. And her mobility makes it hard to poke. If she ever misses the E stun you can out trade and if she stands on on top you can shred with passive dmg. Try to flip her during her W”
Mordekaiserrrrrrr says “Irelia is fairly easy in lane, just respect her early capability when she lands a stun and has full stacks. As long as you go to fight her or use your ultimate on her when she has no stacks, fighting her will be very easy. Also, ulting her after she ults is a great Idea, and you wont have to worry about being damaged by it in the Death Realm.”
TangoVallhala says “ Skill matchup, Good irelia will be tough, Fight her when her stacks are down, dodge her E, try reserving a second Q if she dives on you, at 6 she has good kill potential try killing her beforehand, but you can also try dodging her ult or standing your ground with yours.”
Luceris says “Standard Glacial Runes
Build Duskblade or Trinity Force. Divine Sunderer also works for its healing.
Easy lane Pre 6 with glacial. Glacial slows down the speed of her Q dashes, making it easier to trade with her early on. Irelia's Q puts her behind her target, so if she Q's you after level 2 you can walk up and throw you W backwards right when she gets to you from the dash. This will root her and minimize her damage while giving you time to reposition and trade back. After level 6 things get difficult if you are on her side of the lane due to her ult and stun. She can all in you, but if you use your E ahead of time it can make dodging both a whole lot easier. She pushes wave so hard you typically will not be on her side of the map unless she gets a wave reset off.”
ArmandChad69 says “Vastly superior earlygame, and your chance of winning against her in a melee battle is extremely low. You can scale in the Mid game against her, but her sheer early power is extremely hard to deal with.”
Penguinoverlord1 says “She can zone you off cs and will burst you down very easily if she hits a stun. Play this matchup to survive using your E to get cannon minions and taking the safest cs you can get without being stunned. You are going to be behind in laning phase but you should out scale her after that.”
EternalBadPlayer says “If you cant dodge her E you are most likely dead because if you try to Q her, she will instantly Q into you so she doesnt get bleed and dmg or she will just stun me and dash away. Thank god they nerfed DD because when she went BOTRK + DD she was unkillable. Literally.”
A2Tap says “Irelia will try to take a long trade on the first wave by Q'ing the melee minions. To stop her, try to have priority over the melee minions to prevent her from dashing on them. You are able to windwall the E and the R to prevent her from landing her combo on you.
YoungTact says “Irelia sucks atm, but just look out for when shes about to Last hit a minon with Q to W it. Apply lane harass combo whenever you can and rush bramble. Disengage if she has max conq stacks + passive stacks, dodge her e :)”
qasddsa says “I recommend letting her push early on. You can harass her whenever she goes in close with her dash on ranged minions using your Q - it should be pretty easy to predict when she'll dash to the minion. Once Irelia's passive is stacked, you should be very wary of taking trades with her as it is very strong once stacked. She'll be able to stack her passive on minions, so I don't recommend getting close to minions that are low health, especially your melee minions - you can still harass from range with Q. The main way you beat her early on is through short trades with Q and E as well as by dodging her stun and ultimate. Even if you can't dodge her stun every time, you can disengage most of the time by using Q and W. Irelia does better in trades than Kayle early on because of her mobility and ability to get out after trading, making it hard for you to trade back. Late game, your main priority in fighting her is dodging her E and ultimate.”
ERNESTSAURUS says “SPELLBOOK / GRASP (SCALING) SETUP - CLOTH ARMOR + 4 POTS =
Irelia before the BORK buff, used to be such a free lane, after you hit lvl6 and you have Sheen, she just get outscaled, she used to go tiamat so she will be permapushing a wave to you and you could even go the same runepage as for matchups like Ivern/Yuumi top, But since BORK became a core item in her and a lot of buffs, it all mixed up into making this a hard matchup. Don't get me wrong, you still outscale her quite hard but early on the matchup becomes way harder. Always check her passive stats, if she is close to 5 and you have minions low near by you, just completely back off, with 5 stacks she can even dive you if she plays it properly. Early on is a skill matchup. A good item purchase is Warden's Mail, it will passively reduce her autoattack speed and give you armor, Its a good item to survive after Sheen. This matchup is all about her Stacks, if she has no stacks, you farm if she has 5 stacks or she's close you back off and let the wave push to you.”
SubHuman Filth says “Get grasp just in case you fall behind.
Very snowbally. Plan far ahead and walk far back when she has oppertunity for 5 stacks.
Get early seekers and just get grasp stacks.
You can completely demolish her if you play it right.”
Grayified says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Tryndamere can beat irelia in allins early BUT you must be careful about her passive and conqueror. She stacks both very quickly and can burst you down and use your own minion wave to kite you. Levels 1 and 2 you can get a good advantage on her if she doesn't play back early on. Look to sidestep her E when she casts it, if you dodge her E that can be a very good time to force a trade. Remember when forcing an extended trade early, do your best to start off the trade with an auto attack that way you can extend the trade with your spin to keep on top of her after she disengages. Some Irelia's will start e or w level 1 to get minions from range but if she uses her cooldown try to position yourself forward so that if she walks in your spin range after she used her ability you can get a good trade on her. Post 6 You will win every allin as long as you start the allin with close to full fury and 90% or more hp. A good tip against Irelia is to fight her away from your minion wave, Irelia cannot kite away from you if she doesn't have your minions to dash around. In the mid-late game splitpush you will win the 1v1's as long as you dont get kited too hard. What I like to do sometimes against Irelia is dive them 100-0 right after they have killed my minion wave so that they can't kite away. Her W is a 50% physical damage reduction channel but only lasts 2 seconds.”
Pyroen says “Though she has a low win-rate, she still poses a threat due to her mobility and all in potential. Watch your minion's health bars, and back off when she can potentially kill 2 or 3 with rapid Q's and use them to close the gap between you and her.”
I Am Goliath says “Irelia is pretty hard in my opinion just because she can basically all in you at anytime while you're in your mini form, watch closely when she is about to dash to minions and don't stand close to one of your minions that's about to die or she will get a free leap onto you while getting her Q reset which means she can use it when you E away, Once you get frozen mallet that should help a lot but honestly just try to take value trades and play careful and watch your minions, you can also q the minion if you predict she is going to jump to it.”
STIERNACKENTYP says “Irelia is one of the strongest champs vs GP. You wont do much vs an Irelia OTP since u cant do shit. Once she gets Sheen/Phage, she can perma all in you. I recommend to play very passive, since poke wont help because she can all in u then. Get early ninja tabis.”
I Am Goliath says “This is Yoricks second hardest matchup in my opinion, the good thing about this matchup compared to jax is you actually win it midgame if she is not to snowballed. My #1 tip against irelia is to never summon your ghouls to start the fight because she will insta q kill all of them and get stacks, wait until she jumps on you and is fighting you to summon your ghouls, also you kind of have to wait until you have maiden to do anything in this matchup, be very careful of irelia's level 6 kill pressure and respect her early levels, try to dodge E's the best you can and watch her stacks, if she ever has 5 stacks you have to back off. Also keep an eye on your minions HP because she can jump to them to get onto you easier, You'll want phage + ninja tabi's as your first items in this lane. Mid game you win duels with maiden out as long as she is not fed.”
EntxRecoil says “Lethal Tempo Runes and Build. Ignite + Flash. Long sword refillable potion start. Tryndamere can beat irelia in allins early BUT you must be careful about her passive and conqueror.

ZergDood says “Your level 1 doesn't have angage tools, so don't get flashy the first 2 minutes, get your butt to farm or she'll conqueror you out of lane. A good Irelia will patiently wait for you to waste your W and then engage. If you don't take the bait and don't eat that weird stun, you win the lane and possibly the game if you harass her correctly. If she R's you and you're in danger (or someone else is) you can literally R her away and it's over. Poke her, don't take extended trades, watch her stun, farm and don't let her do so without punishing, and win. Remember, spare your W, use it when she's low or when you're low and she can Q. This is an ideal matchup for Poppy. You have everything to counter her, don't let her outplay you. Your W can stop her dash.”
qazx1427 says “Like Yasuo, having your ghouls up against Irelia just makes her stronger. She'll kill them instantly, stack her passive, and remove you from the game. There's very little counterplay, and she's your best permaban; your team will thank you for it.”
HIGH TEST TOP88 says “Don't let her stack her passive for free. Save stun for W in an allin. Build brambles vest.
You're way better in teamfights than her and you should atleast go even earlygame.
Take bone plating.
Shumair says “The Irelia matchup is a spicy one. You can't just spam your abilities on her and expect to win. It actually requires some skill and knowledge of the matchup to win. You should always keep a mental note of whether she has stacks of Ionian Fervor or not so that you can predict when she'll all in. Another trick is to fight then your minion wave is small so she has less minions to dance around with. When Irelia uses E, you can ult after she places the first one down to cancel the ability as it won't travel to the Death Realm. You have to react very fast to to this and it won't work every time. Another thing you can try to do is flash or protobelt away from her ultimate and then all in her. If you manage to dodge it you will win the fight 100% of times.”
RemusEl says “She has many ways to jump on you and CC you.She can also block your combo with her W. Poke her on lane and use E to disengage(never engage against her because you are left with no ecape).”
ClanBlade says “Very hard to hit as she is super mobile, even with your E. She heals a lot so i recommend you buy an executioners. Her W is similar to Fiora's W except is doesn't stun or make her invulnerable but lasts longer, has a shorter cooldown and reduces physical damage by 50%. She will try to use this on your 3rd Q so be careful as the damage reduction is significant, her W is similar to Fiora but not as bad. To counter her E out of the way if she tries to E you and Ult or flash at the same time she does.”
Murderman5 says “Irelia can dodge most of Cho's attack's as well but you can only stop her if you silence her with w and catch her with q and e afterwards. just keep that distance if she get's attached to you and stun's you things can get messy S:^P. ”
ModxLoL says “There are a couple things to watch out for vs. Irelia: 1) Watch out for her E stun; it will allow her to jump to you an extra time for free. 2) When she uses her W, similar to when Garen uses W, you should not pour your entire combo onto her as it gives her massive damage reduction. Keep auto attacking her while she has it active – you can’t interrupt it with your CC. Once it’s over you can use the rest of your abilities on her. ”
Gangplank_Main1 says “Runes: Grasp, Demolish, Bone Plating, Overgrowth, Biscuits, Time Warp Tonic, Double Adaptive, Armor.
Start of lane passive auto minion for grasp, dont leash.
What to get on first back: Dorans blade (or double dorans blade)
Gangplank hard wins pre 6, level 1-2 you can hard harass irelia then you can also look to get a dorans blade cheater recall. You just need to be very aggressive into irelia until she hits 6. Building Phase first can be good if you have odd backs, but generally going sheen first is idea. Early tabis is nice. When irelia is about to hit 6 you need to make sure your wave isnt near irelia’s tower, cause if so you WILL get zoned for xp and gold. Doesn't matter if you’re full hp, the further away you are from the tower the more time irelia has to kill you. So wave management wise you need to make sure to not mess up. After trinity force its ok to build executioners since irelia’s current build is a bunch of lifesteal items (if the meta has shifted to a different build that doesn’t involve with sustain then don’t build executioners ).Outside of laning phase irelia beats gp in the split but in teamfights you hard win.
9690 says “D-Blade. Level 1 watch out for her passive because if she has max passive stacks she will always beat you. The big part of this matchup comes down to how you use your windwall. Pre-6 use your windwall on her e and run her down. Level 6 don't waste your windwall on just an e because she has a lower e cooldown and can full engage. Outscales you. Take Conq.”
gsaeyx says “Go full AD and you might have a chance. Sit and your turret and only trade when you don't have waves, legit this champ makes me wanna throw up. Rush tabis to prevent her from autoing you to death.”
BloodyDream81 says “Match up à l'avantage de Darius, mais dépend énormément du joueur d'Irelia, si il est vraiment bon, tu ne pourras pas faire grand chose, mais c'est très rare, on va donc parler d'un cas général.
Quand tu affrontes Irelia il y a 2 choses auxquelles tu dois faire attention, son passif et son E. Le passif d'irelia gagne 1 stack à chaque fois qu'elle achève une unité avec son A, jusqu'à un maximum de 5 stack ou elle gagne de gros dégâts bonus sur chacune de ses AA, et de l'atk speed. Visuellement son personnage est entouré d'un halo brillant, elle gagne également des stacks en touchant un champion avec ses sorts ! Quand tu veux affronter irelia clique sur son personnage et regarde en haut à gauche combien elle en a, si elle en a 2 ou plus, attend que l'effet parte !
La deuxième chose, c'est son E, elle pose 2 lame à 2 endroit différent, qui forme une ligne, si tu es sur cette ligne tu es stun, et marqué, la marque lui permet d'utiliser 2 fois son A sur toi, donc si tu évites le E, tu évite le stun, et la marque, si jamais tu fais ça, tu n'as plus qu'a lui courir dessus et elle n'aura aucune chance !
Astuce : Les tabi ninjas te donnent énormément de résistance contre irelia car la totalité de ses dégâts viennent des coup blancs, les avoir rapidement t'assure une lane facile !”

Dantheman81 says “Irelia usually isn't a very big issue unless she gets ahead. If you or your team manages to give her any sort of advantage she will take over the lane and you will have to play very passively and safe. If you manage to get behind early on, pick up a bramble vest to counter her healing when she goes in on you.”
ChocoChurro says “She can't block neither magic or true damage, but she can outplay you. You two have great movilty, but her because of abilities and you because of MS. Skill matchup (and a good Irelia will have a lot more skill than a good Lillia).”
Xplor says “Irelia can be a threat if skilled. Avoid her abilities as much as possible and farm close to your turret. You can take Irelia down easily if he misses most of her skills.
You have better chances after level 6 and/or after you have at least trinity force. Then the lane is all yours.”
Lintaar says “Irelia is extremely mobile but she cant do much pre-6 so play aggressive. When she ults you make sure to run out the back NOT THROUGH THE BLADE WALL. Q her as you do and you should be able to circle around to your side of the map very fast.”
Darrkescru says “O bixin do capet4 use impeto gradual e nunca troque quando ela estiver com a passiva stackada quando ela te dar all in faz ela pisar em um cogumelo proca o impeto e caita ela ate a morte”
Magginator says “I've never struggled personally against Irelia. If she ults towards you ult her out of it the other way. Just let her waste mana on her q reset while farming if she does that. Or better yet force her to q to farm by positioning to get a stun.”
iTzToniOP says “This is not hard at all but if you underestimate her damage and die early you'll be into a trouble. If the lane is tied and she ults you, don't worry, don't walk away, it will be worse. Just use your R, spam the W and try to win the trade. If you're near your tower it is possible to get away by jumping out.”
darksage1234 says “This is a skill matchup. Good Irelia players will kite you and just go for short trades against you. Be careful of her stun, if it hits you, you want to sky splitter to give you the advantage in a fight.”
ForOrion says “A weaker top lane early and mid game. She has the damage to knock you down once she reaches 6, but you have the ability to put her out if she gets too close either under turret or if she is trying to stack her passive in lane. Punish her Q and all in, with care of her E. If she misses, its free kills.”
JuarezLOL says “irelia is a tricky champion because we are able to screw her kit or hard lose to her
you can easily dodge her E with your W but when she use R on you there is no escape in it you have only 1 option to use R before she jump on you and cancel her Q mid-way its possible and its very easy same method can apply on tryndamere's E”
JuarezLOL says “its very easy match up because you will dominate the game but in order to do that you cant trade hard in early game because she can crush you with her E the moment you are rushing in with your E she will stun you and will get a good chunk of your hp so farm up and wait for your ruined king after that just all in her ”
JuarezLOL says “irelia is hard because her all in potential is stronger than gp and gp is a poke based champion so in order to win this lane you need to dominate her pre 6 and dodge her E save your passive for her all in and always have a barrel up
get your grasp stack with getting aggro from minions”
AskMeHowToGp says “Bait her into qing a minion while u put your barrle in the range of the minion that way she will need to eather take the minion and the damage or miss cs and you will eventualy out farm her.”
WatchersGrim says “With the new irelia, plus conqueror. Fighting her is a pain. The new stun combo to go in and out just does a lot. Plus with her negating around 80% or so damage, her W now basically counters your ult.”
Kingarthur720 says “irelia isnt a hard matchup since few people are good on her. You can go virtually any build here but i like the grasp build into her since she will most likely dash into your auro range while you are cs'ing giving you free grasp procks. She snowballs hard if she gets 1 or 2 kills so be sure to keep her in check and not let her roam. Good irelia's will make sure to keep in melee range and not let you farm up in this case build RFC or PD first items”
VIP Titan says “Irelia is one of the champion you really should beat her. Since Olaf is made to counter her!
Be aware of her passive charge up to 4 stacks
She can't kill you when is on a flat ground (No minions)
MAX E not Q !
DeLaGeezyBaby says “Irelia es un campeón con mucha movilidad y daño. Además que si las cosas salen mal en linea y comienza a hacer roaming en otras lineas se convierte en una pesadilla para las demás lineas.”
Starci says “I would say this lane is in your favor. Parry her E and the fight is pretty much yours. If she has ult the fight may go either way, but if you manage to dodge it with your Q too you stomp her.”
Discord Rengar Mains says “It's actually surprising just how well Rengar can deal with Irelia. If you manage to dodge her E and fight her when she has less than 3-4 stacks of her passive, she can't do shit about it, since you actually outdamage her significantly early game. Good wave management will also screw her over since she will have a harder time stacking her passive, and the only really annoying thing about her is her W defensive steroid. If you manage to kill her twice then it's almost gg, since she can't risk farming without you beating the shit out of her. However, do note she can set up ganks quite well and if she gets too ahead she will make short work of you, but you still have a lead. Do note however that the new BotRK build might change this match up later on.
Ignite + Flash is good to leave her behind early on and keep on winning. Conqueror is also a great rune to deal with her overall. Aggressive bruiser will leave her into the dirt until the very late game, but even full AD can work.”
Itreallyhim says “Skill matchup, Irelia is insanely strong and has crazy outplay potential.
Dodge her e, If she hits you with ult, Ult her to remove the walls and return the damage when she has nowhere to go.
Dont do longer trades because of her passive.”
ThatTaylorGuy says “Mobility is the name of the game! Irelia can dodge all of our skillshots with relative ease, has a ranged stun AND can disable our autos. Play safe, farm under tower and fish for E's.”
Asoreth says “Also not a favorite of Irelia, but Shen actually wins this matchup. When she tries to fight you, you try and fight her back, but not for too long of course, because her passive can deal devastating damage.”
GamerAtLarge says “Two half's of the same aggressive lane bully coin with Fiora when laning against Yorick. While with practice and knowing how Irelia is played she can become much less of an early threat. But be warned any who lane against her blindly.”
GreeN1337 says “Can be a difficult matchup but it really depends on the skill. Just remember to dodge her E and you should be good to go in. In this matchup i would recomend starting Coruppting Potions.”
Dejuronto says “Oh yeah. Irelia with sorcery can 1v1 you at lvl 1, obviously. But at lvl 3, it might be a different story. Just don't miss your E, or she'll win the trade heavily on you. Oh yeah, and please freeze the wave on her early. Always.”
ShinyEmo says “Her stun can be the most predictable skill in the game. So when she uses her stun, dodge it with your Q and burst her. Must be a certain win. You can dodge her R with your Q too. Especially after her nerfs, she is now your easiest matchup.”
Thr3shPrinc3 says “Depending on how good the Irelia is this lane can be quite difficult. You can poke her out of lane and she doesn't have insane amounts of sustain as long as you don't fight her while she has Conqueror stacked. You can cancel her Q dash with flay which will cause it to go on cooldown even if she dashed to a marked target. Remember this and capitalize on it if you do cancel out her dash. Dodge her stun as far as possible and don't be afraid of going for extended trades if you know she doesn't have dash or stun.”
ForgottenProject says “She is VERY weak Level 1 vs Fiora
If she dashes to/autos a minion, attack her
She has 0 self peel Level 1 if she starts Q
Parry her E is ideal
If you miss it, you can still parry her R or Q and still win
Make sure to R her, even if you think you can win without it
Her outplay potential after 2 full items is very strong”
Braddik says “You can hold your e forever vs this champion. Don't get stunned and you should be fine, you hard outscale her, look to all in every chance you get. Watch out for her passive reaching 5 stacks.”
Trial_By_Barrel says “Not as bad as people think. You can orange out of her stun. But she can kill you if she ults since she gets the double dash effect. Since she's squishy you can poke her pretty easy and you can also land barrels for extra damage and the passive reset for trades. Just be careful with hitting passive autos.”
Pedrokis says “Muito chato de se jogar contra, visto que quase sempre a troca é dela. / Começa de escudo e vai com a runa "Vs AD Chato", depois faz Poção de refill e rusha Tabi. / Cuidado com a vida dos seus minions, ela pode matar eles com o Q, stackar passiva e te meter um E. / Se ela errar um reset do Q e tiver sem o stun, as primeiras trocas são menos chatas. Caso você ganhe nessas trocas, normalmente com ajuda do JG, você começa a snowballar, mas não afoba por que ela volta pro game bem rápido.”
The Lost Drawing says “A nivel 1 normalmente matan los subditos melees con su 'Q' castigala con una 'Q' tuya normalmente se comen las dos cargas.
Le cancelas su 'Q' evitando que te tire 'R' de maneras salvajes”
qtANG says “skill based match. Wukong has a good LvL 1 when versing irelia. E into her when she doesn't have stacks on her passive. Though, she scales and out sustained wukong later on. However, wukong is still better at teamfights compare to Irelia.”
VicGal96 says “It's actually surprising just how well Rengar can deal with Irelia. If you manage to dodge her E and fight her when she has less than 3-4 stacks of her passive, she can't do shit about it, since you actually outdamage her significantly early game. Good wave management will also screw her over since she will have a harder time stacking her passive, and the only really annoying thing about her is her W defensive steroid. If you manage to kill her twice then it's almost gg, since she can't risk farming without you beating the shit out of her. However, do note she can set up ganks quite well and if she gets too ahead she will make mincemeat of you, but you still have a lead.”
Split King says “Irelia is a tough matchup for many top lane champs. This is not the case with Shen. Just make sure that you are tanky enough to survive an all-in with her ult. Health is worth more than armor early on, as you cannot reduce her true damage. Try trading with her from time to time. If you lose trades then farm for a while and try again. You will become stronger than her eventually.”
ozmankaan says “Op way too OP, u cant land ur disdain coz of her movement, she can stun u anytime, her ult is OP too :O i mostly ban her, i dont knw how to fight her, if i have to i go very passive against her, mostly she will win lane.”
Valorkyrie Quinn says “Has high mobility, and strong teamfighting ability.
Your only window is pre-6 when she doesn't have her ultimate.
Fleet Footwork is recommended in this matchup, for the HP sustain.
Tip: Pay attention to ally minion health. Irelia may dash in for minions low on health. You can use your Q to blind her, preventing her from dashing from you. Interrupt her dash onto you with your E.
After 6, you would prefer to look for roams. Take down isolated enemies before Irelia arrives to a teamfight.”
BeautifulWinter says “Dashy Girl pretty easy. RESPECT LEVEL 2 POWER SPIKE. Do not try to play agro here as she will be able to massively out damage you in a trade.
Post 6 should be super free as long as you hit an E on her.”
Big Belly Bop says “Be careful when you are near minions that are low, she can dash to them and get off a full combo. You need to play around your jungler and coordinate ganks to shut her down. She is a pain to deal with in laning phase and will abuse your low mobility. Flash + TP, Doran's Blade + 1 HP, Survivability rune page.”
9690 says “Irelia isn't a hard lane. Be careful levels 1 & 2 where she is pretty strong, and be mindful of her fully stacked passive. Other than that we win trades at all points. Build tabi and destroy her post 6 with R.”
Luthy2278 says “Irelia is just one of the worst picks against Mordekaiser. She is better AFK. You win all trades and if she tries to poke you, you are going to kill her. After you hit level 6, you will just farm her harder than you farm Garen.”
LuxIsMyCrush says “Pretty dangerous in good hands, and even more dangerous on hentai sites, this ionian ass can win 90% of trades against any squishy champion in lane phase, and usually after it too. Your best bet is either to play like a god or hug the turret and poke her when she tries to farm. Don't forget to get TABI and maybe zhonya, an item that grant attack speed would be great too since you will probably never burst her, I personally prefer wit's end over nashor for the sustain it gives in close fights.
Be careful at level 6, if you can dodge her ult and juke around her E you should be able to kill her, but if she hit any of those you are probably dead.”
Defensivity1 says “Against irelia the grasp page is a must, try to trade with her a lot before level 6 especially when she jumps inside your minion wave its an easy way to proc grasp gaining a health advantage and do ur best to dodge her stun.”
mightydylan101 says “Pretty annoying champ played on a good player but if you are lower elo you wont see her much due to her nerfs and her high skill cap. Barley ever played but can destroy you if they know what they're doing.”
ProgettoYorick says “Irela can become a problem if you are against a good (good) irelia. Its q literally shot your ghouls.
Advice from OTP: tabbi ninja do well against her, when she gets over you and if you have your r try to stay still, without touching the edges of her r hitting her with your q (only if you have a decent life to support a fight )”
ScythedS says “Dodge her stun and you win.She will most likely use Q to farm,as most Irelias do.So,if you see a low health minions,just know that she will probably dash to it.When she does,poke her,or even go for an all-in if she does't have stun ready.Also,don't fight her when her passive is stacked up”
ThisIsJustSad says “1. Do not fight Irelia when she has 5 stacks.
2. W Irelia E stun. It's pretty easy to W it, so try to focus more on aiming your W instead of timing your W.
3. You can also use Q-W to try to dodge the Irelia E while aiming the W at Irelia to slow her down if you're not to confident of dodging it.
4. If Irelia walks into you and fights you, you want to keep walking around her and Q through her to try to randomly dodge her R. The same trick works on any champion with a skill shot that has a delay.
5. If Irelia Rs you, you can Q out and use W mid Q to avoid the damage + the slow. You should do this if you don't want to take the fight and you have an enemy minion to reset your Q.
6. If Irelia uses W, wait for her W to finish before using the second part of your E so you can get the max damage from it.”
Skarner Main says “You have to side step her E and dont fight her when she got 5 stack q on and be carefull throwing out your e when shes fighting you she goes behind you its annyoing if you miss your e you will most likely die”
Karnan says “Nasty champion to deal with. If she knows her stuff she can dodge all of your abilities with her Q. Stay away from fighting her in minion waves and watch out when she procs her passive. You have trade potential if you can dodge her stun. You outscale her hard so stay calm in the matchup.”
OneMustFall says “As long as you get ahead, you'll stay ahead of her. You can completely negate her stun with your shield and kite her all over the place. Just don't get too comfortable and drift too close to her or you won't be able to get away.”
Bajnok says “You have to be careful. Irelia can outperform you due to her's scaling. Use your E to prevent yourself from getting a lot damage while you are stunned. Avoid fighting when her's passive proc and got 5 stack on Conqueror. If she get's behind you close your shield as fast as you can.”
TerryTheWolf says “Probably the strongest counter for Yorick. You have to cs as much as possible before your first back and try to rush phage+ninja tabi then complete the trinity force. And the other tip i can tell about this broken champion is to NOT engage with her when she is on full stacks and check the minion waves on both sides before trying to engage her in a 1v1.”
Ze mentira says “Max: E. Rune: Grasp page.
start doran shield and back with glacial shroud.
//Frozen heart and bramble vest are good items to fight her.
//if she comes to you, press E instantly to reduce attack speed.”
Hamstertamer says “High threat until Riot balances this broken champ. Very snowbally matchup so running ignite is a must. Ask your jungler to camp her early. Bully her when she uses Q on the first minion, she is very weak when her passive isn't stacked so fight her at that time. Keep a minion advantage to punish her if she goes on you.”
AsomeSonic says “she dashes a lot so use your w when minions get low for her during a gank or chase, also keep trask of what she can reset her q off of or easy exits for that nice w of yours, it will ground her of stall her”
Polkadog says “Can get out of your W, can slow you down, deals a shit-ton of damage. But you are a tank with a shovel. If she knows her job, you're kinda screwed but you can still semi-easily kill her with your Q.”
Yotzuo says “Hardest champion to be honest. This person can all in you and you cannot kite no matter what. Only way to defeat her is try to abuse her weak early levels and slow push early. Stay in bushes and poke her. When she tries to go in on you E > Q > W away. Irelia will get minion aggro because u slow pushed and have a minion wave and you kite back, so you win trade. Get sheen and tabis. If there's a point where irelia always shuts you down. (mostly because she got triforce) Freeze the wave at turret, proc klepto, and try not to die :D. Use control ward and wait for jungle to gank.”
blunderr says “Irelia does a lot of damage and can easily run you dont if you aren't careful, poke her a lot and try predicting if she's going to Q a minion, if you think she is prepare to auto attack/q her to get a free poke. I recommend Doran's Shield”
HKRV says “Skill matchup. Keep an eye on your minions as she will go for the low health ones. Set up your Q for it to poke her. Also save your E against her Q and you can do some damage to her. Only all in, with ult. ”
Poppu says “Keep an eye on your minions. Whenever your minions get low, Irelia players tend to last hit with Q and stack her passive, that's when she gets dangerous. Deny her CS, freeze the wave, and out trade her with Grasp and Q, cancel her Q with your W and go all in and she won't be able to out damage you. Don't E into her when she uses W, E her whenever you get the chance to pin her against the wall, or else she will punish you hard. She has more mobility, but weaker early game if you play it right.”
Aizo says “When facing Irelia she is an incredibly slippery high damage champion with a lot of things you need to keep in mind. Dodging her stun and ultimate are crucial to beating her in 1v1's. In champion select when you know you are going against her, take double Magic resist runes because irelia deals high Magic damage due to her passive so taking the magic resist runes will allow you to mitigate a lot of that and you're going to be building Bramble Tabis vs her first so you can live. Good luck with a good irelia tho they are a terror.”
SoulHero says “Good irelia mains are a pain. This is like riven matchup but don't fight her if she has q stacks or conq stacks. Your dash can engate her stun, predict where she will q and flip her, you can easily win if you can do this every fking time. If you zone her you win. Only time you don't win is if she has stacks. If she w's stop kiting, don't waste knees on her dmg reduction. You can do lvl 1 e trick if she tries to dash to the first melee minions. ASSERT YOUR DOMINANCE.”
Vodka4Gaben says “After the nerfs you should be able to win against Irelia every time in lane, the only exception is if you get ganked by their jungle. Just pull her in with your E and it should be an easy kill.”
DrNaara says “Though she has a low win-rate, she still poses a threat due to her mobility and all in potential. Watch your minion's health bars, and back off when she can potentially kill 2 or 3 with rapid Q's and use them to close the gap between you and her.”
jmothemtgahole says “Irelia is a tough matchup in top or mid with her mobility, but with smart turret placement and proper use of your stun, you can out shake her and get to safety (provided your team is paying attention to minimap)”
empoleonz0 says “Completely counters you, scales about the same, more useful in teamfights and can match your push. Her Q completely negates your Q which means you can't trade in lane at all against her if she's decent. Second only to Jax imo”
PhoenixianSlayer says “Zoning her is easy and you can get a cs lead. Just be super careful early levels so that she doesn't kill you pre level 6. Once you get luden's echo, it takes only a couple bouncing bombs and a mega inferno bomb to end her. ”
Lynboe says “Ce match-up dépend de votre connaissance du champion adverse, si Irelia rate son cc, alors vous gagnerez le trade, si elle vous engage avec son passif stacké vous risquez de perdre ce trade.
Afin d’éviter de perdre la lane face à Irelia, il est conseillé d’acheter deux Doran’s Blade ainsi que des Tabi Ninja, ça l'empêchera de fight au possible ou du moins l’en dissuadera.
Freeze la vague de sbire ou shove peut s’avérer dangereux pour vous, il est très facile pour elle de farm sous tour et avoir trop de cs lui permet de bénéficier de beaucoup de mobilité grâce à son Q.
Il est conseillé face à elle de garder le moins de cs possible afin de pouvoir la all-in sans qu’elle puisse vous rendre fou.
Jnewbringspain says “You should be able to win this one as long as you don't eat her stun too often. If you do, attempt to Counter Strike right before it hits you and Leap away after the stun. She has terrible level 1 so use this to your advantage and go on the aggressive with Counter Strike.”
messketchup says “It's definitely a skill matchup. Save your Q until her Q (dash) is on cd or when you've cc'd her with your pull. You will win trades if you dodge her stun. Keep track of low hp minions that she can jump to so you can punish her when she dashes to it. Also pay attention to her stacks because she can easily beat you if she gets her 5 stacks before you do.”
Sonny2o9 says “Irelia Favored, can win pre level 6. If she misses stun, you win. Take short trades as she wins the sustained war. Make sure to use your combo after she uses her Defiant Dance (w). Can one shot after 7 if you don't die when she uses her combo. ”
Angela du Seithr says “Avec les grands nerfs qu'Irelia a subi il est plus facile de lui faire comprendre qui domine sur la voie du Top ou du Mid. Restez tout de même vigilant car c'est un champion qui retourne facilement les situations.”
WTMudkip says “Her Q puts her behind you. So she's able to use her Q to dash through your E which is a big no no. She'll auto you to death and get her stacks up and win the trade and evantually the fight.”
EvilOranges says “D-Blade, D-Shield. This is the most skillful matchup possibly in all of League. You win burst trades, she wins extended trades. Poke whenever possible, and don't allow her to engage with Q. I like to zone her away from low health minions, but for 1 tricks they will fight you. Use E to disengage whenever she Q's onto you.”
uk Orca says “not a threat whatsoever unless they are REALLY good at irelia which is probably not, early u can 1v1 easily u can use E to dodge her stun, at lvl 6 its harder but if you are ahead its fine.”
12inchpvpness says “Don't combo while her W is up and juke out her stun and its an easy lane. With Irelia's changes to take her front loaded damage away and put more into her auto attacks, its more of just a dodge stun and win lane, she is a real threat and you need to respect her or you will find yourself getting chain dove.”
Zestysquid says “She will jump into you a lot usually. Some of the less bright ones will try to wait out the boxes with her defense steroid, which locks her in place and usually gets her killed. If she has ult, make sure you have Q, ult, or both if you're in her attack range so you can dodge at least some of the damage before the cage expires so you can lead her into boxes.”
Jnewbringspain says “Pretty easy matchup. Avoid her stun, watch her passive stacks. If you do these two things, you come out ahead in trades and can engage her by yourself. Your W is fairly helpful in this matchup so use it wisely.”
Dr.G Killa says “You just need to be carefull with her passive, If she Is stacked and you waste your Q she can destroy you. Fight her away from minions and dodge her E, her lvl 3 Is very strong, be carefull.”
Ryako the Exile says “Irelia counters you but if play dodge her E and dont let her stack her 5 stacks, you will lose if she has 5 stacks. If you are hard losing against her she can dive you but maybe you can outplay her while diving.”
RainbowNova says “Irelia is very annoying, but her stun is very predictable. Her Q is annoying, because it feels like she can use it as much as she'd like to. I've never understood her ultimate, but all I feel like it really does is slow you, which doesn't kill you, so that's why I'm putting her so low on the Threats-scale.”
Lil Tidepod says “Irelia top is kind of a joke now, as patch 9.2 took away a lot of her damage to shields. Her mobility can be annoying, but once you build a tank item she shouldn't be able to kill you unless she's fed. Take care for her E, she can use it to stun you when you're charging your Q. It's also important to note that when she stacks her passive fully she will do a lot of extra damage. Early game you won't be able to kill her or do much against her without the jungler, which is why her threat is major instead of even.”
naejshaw says “Irelia possui uma mecânica de gap closer muito forte com os resets do seu Q, além do cc do E.
Evitar trocas próximas dos seus minions, devido o reset do Q da irelia, além do stack da passiva. Evitar o stun e buscar pokes constantes”
Dr.Chrishock says “this thing just gets hp by minions cant miss cs i mean ur fked up and she stays behind minions to farm so you cant really poke her even if you do she is gonna heal soooo hope for a gank
you can win late tho if you havent feed her
gnar always wins late team fights”
ImpossibleLogic says “The low elo perma-ban. Irelia is a slippery champ from the get go with and amazing level 2 if she has stacks you can try and zone and predict her Q's early game to shut down her dominance however she will pretty easily kill you whenever she wants just save your E to dodge her E as if she hits you with that she will kill you / make you flash 100% of the time when she has ult you have to flash out of it or you will die as it constricts your movement as well as if you step on it you are slowed and killed by her.”
Scuz Rat says “Irelia relies heavily on dashes and can be bullied very easily when she Q's toward a minion by placing your Q on the minion, either preventing her from getting the minion or winning you a trade. Do not get wasteful with Steadfast presence however as after it ends she can easily all in and kill you.”
DrMoneybags says “Much like Akali, Irelia isn't too bad once you see past the craziness of her kit. She's getting nerfed soon as well, so that's a plus. Try to Q toward your minions that are low and that she'll likely Q toward, and you'll always land your beartraps. E through her stun and you'll win most trades. It's ideal to W after she uses her W, but taking conqueror will help deal with the damage resist. Not too bad of a matchup so long as she isn't a lot more skilled than you are.”
Arcthunder says “Irelia is very squishy too. If you can shut her down early by poking often with your Q (since she has no long range poke), then you can all-in her if she doesn't respect your godly status.”
kubsak26 says “To win you need to Play smart with minons to avoid and punish her Q. You can actually poke her easy i you pay attention to her cs'ing. Her best way to get close to you i stuning you with E and ult and you can dodge both it is actually easyer for you to hit her from range because of your slow. A whole matchup depends on that how well she cs with Q if good she will dodge your Q if no then you can abuse her for free. Unfortunately her late is good so you can't feed her no matter what. If you don't feel like you can outplay her with poke it's better to just play safe and farm.”
The_CuItivator says “One of my favorite matchups. An Irelia can scale into a stronger carry but Darius always stomps that. You have the advantage in laning phase and mid game. Use it. Dodge her stun and destroy her. Don't let her farm and stack passive.”
OnionMilkshake says “Irelia is a slippery champ from the get go with and amazing level 2 if she has stacks you can try and zone and predict her Q's early game to shut down her dominance however she will pretty easily kill you whenever she wants just save your E to dodge her E as if she hits you with that she will kill you / make you flash 100% of the time when she has ult you have to flash out of it or you will die as it constricts your movement as well as if you step on it you are slowed and killed by her
Jomppe says “ [Top] Irelia is a direct counter to Yorick. Her high defensive abilities, high mobility, and high burst allows her to counter everything you do. She constantly will be jumping around making it difficult to land your mist. And once Irelia goes in on you she will win the trade. It is best to play defensively and try to freeze lane right before your tower so you have an escape.”
Dr.Chrishock says “rly difficult you need to def 24/7 and a jg to help you early she spams q and dodges ur E and she is able to stun u wt i would do is E when she stuns me bcz you can still do the animation and that would result in a good fight for you”
Khazem says “Starts off as a minor threat, becomes major at level 6. Look to build an advantage before she does get her ultimate and you should be alright until the later stages of the game where it becomes very difficult to match her.”
qtANG says “skill based match up. During lvl 1, engage before she stacks up her passive. If u manage to catch her without passive during lvl1, u can possibly get a kill. She outscales u during mid and late game. Don't fight her 1v1 if u don't have ult and she has.
besides, don't land all your combo on her W !!!!”
ApexDresden says “She's a slippery match up aswell, however she isn't as bad as Yasuo, she can negate some of your damage but she won't be able to win many trades as long as she doesn't have her conqueror stacks, so engage before she can and make sure you track her down as she'll use Q to move around minions”
ElleryTheViking says “Easy. Level 1, you out-trade her. Level 3, you out-trade her. Level 6, you out-trade her. her abilities require on close quarters combat, which you excel most at. If she Q's to you, Spam Q and E her, there's nothing she can do. Beware her stun pre 6, if she lands that she can dish out a relatively even trade. Post 6 you steamroll her, if she q's to you, ult and do your thing. ”
BlackguardRaven says “Just dodge her e stun, and then ez lane. abuse her dash ability and place a mushroom infront of you and then just stand there and wait for her to step in/dash, if she uses her stun thing, just use your w to dodge it”
kingkang2 says “Irelia's Q can oneshot all of your ghoulings. She has to be pretty skilled since the ghoul hitbox is pretty small and messing up a Q on a minion will put her Q on cooldown. If you notice this, get on her and get a favorable trade or kill. She is mobile, but not as bad to lane against compared to other champions. Hit 6 and the lane becomes very easy to win.”
Naniboi101 says “Sometimes takes ignite and goes executioners. Sometimes bursts you or all ins, but e and dashes pretty easy to predict and her w makes her a sitting duck for you to proke all those true dmg vitals.
Samas says “Dodge her stun and go for a trade early, if her Q is down - trade. If she ults you, you should ult too in most cases because she is probably going for a trade. Gain a health lead and push. Dont go out of your way to jump on her to harrass, stand close to low hp minions so if she wants to take them you can get some free damage down, but be wary, she might be using them to close the gap and engage on you.”
E61K says “Start Doran's Blade. The only chance to beat you is level If she ever tries to cs by using her Q post level 3 when you have QWE force a fight on her. She will try to stun you in order to disengage. It's easy to dodge so you should have no problems doing so. Then she will most likely use her W for the damage reduction on your Q at which point you can just continue to run her down. Once you have a lead zone her off of farm, EXP and make her pay. When you're confident and have a large minion wave backing you up you can even go for a dive on her like I have done numerous times. Her asking for a gank should be a simple double kill for you once you have more experience at turning ganks around.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Dueling Potential, Scales, Team fighting. Weaknesses: 1v1 if misses stun, Predictable CC, weak early game. An easy matchup that can be more difficult than it should be if you tend to make a lot of mistakes. You can trade with her and she can’t really retaliate unless she has her stun which is easy to Riposte. The only time she has a chance at killing you is when she has Conqueror activated and has already maxed out her passive autos. This matchup essentially boils down to who wins the first two to three trades among either of you, which in all fairness, should be you almost every time. Before she gets Trinity Force is when she's at her weakest point. If you do end up feeding her, just wait and farm up until late game and hope to pick her of in a side lane as in the 4-6 item late game is when Fiora is able to out-duel almost anyone.”
Miracle Matter says “Absolute nightmare-mode. This champion is an abomination. You can swap to exhaust, use Seraph's shield, have armor, and still nearly get 1-shot by her if she ever lands a single stun.
If you're forced to play versus an Irelia, you farm from safety, under your turret, and then you GROUP. NOT SPLITPUSH. You will out-contribute her in teamfights and win the game that way.”
Sion says “Skill matchup, iffy depending on the playstyle. Never Q into her W unless she's mid-charge, which means you will land a Q AFTER her W ends.
Avoid trades post 6, you bully her pre 6 though. Use R to roam and try to outCS her, watch out for junglers because they like to gank for Irelia”
Proxxecube says “Similar to yourself, Irelia is a super-late game scaler. However, this means that Rito was obligated to nerf her early game into the ground. This by no means she can't do anything, she still has damage, it just means your True Damage and sustain will outdo anything she can put forward. If you notice her waste an ability at level 1, like her e or q, immediately fight, because she can't use her passive and her autos aren't super strong. Just pray your team doesn't feed her, and you should be good.”
Zahkar00 says “Take Grasp.
Honestly its just pathetic how easily Taric sh*ts on Irelia. Once you get lvl 2 she cant touch you without getting wrecked. The outplay is simple, when you see a low health minion stun into it and more likely than not youve caught yourself an Irelia to beat to death.”
Trixelkour says “Will probably win against you, but that is if you let her. Play around your ult and hers and you can win relatively easily. But be very cautious of her bursts of damage. Will try and confuse you with an E into an Ult, Q then finish the E to maximize damage out put in the least amount of time. Play safe and call for ganks. Get a Sunfire into an Adaptive helmet and you can duel her around crowds of people. Take Grasp, Aftershock or Glacial Augment to make her less Slippery to deal with. Also be sure to get Ravenous Hunter for extra sustain when dueling. ”
SirDeRp25 says “Depends on whether she's good. Put it simply, irelia is just a busted piece of **** pls nerf rito. Consider Ninja Tabis, save blind for when she Q's onto you. Try not to trade. Engage when she steps on a shroom. ”
E61K says “I find the new Irelia to be much much easier than the old one. Her Ult and Stun can both be windwalled. It's crucial that you abuse this to your advantage and force fights when you block those 2 abilities. You can use your E to dodge her W or use your tornado to cancel it, after which you are in a perfect position to all in her with your ult.”
Beartrand says “Irelia is pretty fast and agile. It might take some time for you to pin her down. She might win trades if she lands her stun. If she ults, the best thing to do is just stay the crap in there and hit her as many times as you can without touching the ultimate.”
Zachlikespizza says “A good irelia will keep dancing around your q's through lane until she out scales you and auto's you to death. The best you can do inlane is save your e to avoid her stun and attempt to lock her down with your w once she wastes her q.”
DJREVy says “Urgot beats the hell out of Irelia before level 6. After level 6, you will lose. Thus, poke and harass the fuck out of her pre-6 and build up a lead. Play with caution after that point.
Ban her or Fiora.”
TheSuporter says “Early game damage is ridiculous because true damage is a thing. Play passively and ask for ganks. Harass her if she goes for cs but don't engage unless she is really low and you have ult and ignite/exausth.”
CaioOP1985 says “Nasus is possibly one of the best ways to play against Irelia. You have a better sustain with your passive and the most important thing: most of her damage will come from auto-attacks, which are slowed by Wither so the moment her passive is on, you use your W and she'll lose a great portion of her DPS.”
Ashnard says “Irelia is still pretty strong, and can all in you easily if she hits stun and has passive + conqueror up. Other than that, she has no mobility outside of minion waves, so try to freeze on your side and trade her every chance you get”
galvapheonix says “ Irelia usually isn't a very big issue unless she gets ahead. If you or your team manages to give her any sort of advantage she will take over the lane and you will have to play very passively and safe. If you manage to get behind early on, pick up a bramble vest to counter her healing when she goes in on you.”
