“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.”
“Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite
Tips: Predict her Q jump on low health minions with your E. Dodge her E. Your W blocks her Q and Passive on-hit. Don't walk through her R-blades if possible.”
“Maxing (Q) is your best bet, however, the second she acquires BOTRK you will lose. Late game (Q) this becomes less effective simply due to her gap close chase and lock downs which tends to be impossible to avoid. It's a pain and you can sort of get around it by building Plated steelcaps. 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. 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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Don't fight her in early game.
Hit her with Q.
Just before stun, use your W towards it and stack W.”
“Dodge her stun blade and be careful of her Q'ing around. Keep track of her passive stacks as her fully stacked passive will deal a lot of damage. Otherwise just smack her like any other melee matchup.”
“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. Sunfire is strong against her because if offers resistances against mixed damage and enough damage to punch through her healing.
She is relatively weak in teamfights so a hook or well timed flay can (potentially) shut her down entirely.”
“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.
“her passive does a lot of dps when stacked, look for trades when she doesn't have her passive stacks built up, otherwise look to q farm until the stacks run out.”
