Tips Against Irelia in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

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.”

xPetu says “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.”
Sovereign Kitten says “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.”

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. [1]Whenever she Qs onto a minion near you, you Q her for free damage. [2]Dont be scared to trade with her as long as you can proc vitals. [3]Parry her E it's super obvious. [4]Dont Fight her when she has her Passive & Conqueror stacked.”

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.”

MrDomian says “Don't fight her in early game. Hit her with Q. Just before stun, use your W towards it and stack W.”

PH45 says “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.”
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. 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.”

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. ”

Feedaboi says “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.”

Tips Against Irelia in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Katawina52 says “Irelia should have a hard favour in this matchup, but it's killable if you can dodge/avoid her E. If you use your dash to avoid her spells you can deny her Q resets (if you got hit by her E/R). If her E/R hits you will hard lose the trade and most likely die, that's why I put this matchup towards the Hard catagory. The better her mechanics, the harder the matchup gets and u won't ever win 1v1's if the irelia is not bad at her champion even if you'r 3-0.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Skill matchup. Irelia has been nerfed enough where i would say the matchup is Yasuo favored unless both players are masters at the champions. Abuse her lvl 1 and try to get a trade on her when you get lvl 2 before her. Always windwall her E if you cant dash out of it in time bc if she hits you with even one of them, she can easily full to zero you. You should win all ins as long as you windwall E. This matchup is very snowbally so whoever gets the edge first will usually take over the lane. When she gets 6 try to wind wall her ult or E through her to dodge it, although if you do happen to get hit by it make sure to not disarm yourself or else you will 100% die. Also, something to note is her stun cd is a lot shorter than your windwall so watch out for that and make sure to dash our of some of her stuns bc your windwall won't be up for all of them.”

Fuzzmonkey says “Dodge her E stun and you can pretty much all in her. Make sure you don't initiate on her when she has 5 stacks of her passive and conqueror (fully stack) otherwise she'll easily out trade you.”

Yeager says “Avoid fighting her when she has her passive stacked. Also keep an eye on her E. If you get hit by that, you're going to get chunked really hard with her follow-up damage. ”

Yeager says “She's mobile with CC, making it extremely hard to punish her. Watch out for when her passive is fully stacked and don't trade. Let her push the wave and try have it at YOUR SIDE OF THE LANE. Focus on farming and getting your core items. When trading, focus on dodging her E, and stay far away from your own minions so she doesn't use those to close the distance. You can cripple her mobility with W of course but you don't have to force risky plays because you outscale her hard in the lategame. Farm for your important items and outshine her in teamfights. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA). Ring + 2 Pots + an Extra Ring + Refillable if you still struggle. Get armor early if needed (Tabis/Parts of Zhonya). Irelia is a rather difficult matchup but doable. Im not advising for Corrupting because she will always try to 100-0 you when she hits her CC spell. Pre 6 you can fight and kill her but unless you are far ahead post 6 I don't really recommend trying to fight her since a good Irelia will always find ways to burst you down/dodge/outplay you due to her kit strength. Compared to Kata/Yasuo she is far more manageable and VERY susceptible to ganks. I usualy play with Ignite and try to poke her with Q from far away especially early on (Q+E at level 2 and push, but keep in mind their jungler!). If you feel the opponent vastly outskills you go for all the extra runes/resistances you can and roam. Minion Demat + Time Warp Tonic is a must as far as I see it. Pick Heal/Barrier if you feel you gonna get heavily outplayed (or you play against a smurf - op.gg to see that).”

crabbix says “People who play Irelia mid are turbo virgins. Watch for when she's stacking passive, and get the hell away from your minions”
Polarshift says “Hard to catch and very strong in a lot of phases of the game. She can engage hard on you if you ever misposition, so be careful, since you will never out-damage her when she has 5 stacks. Most Irelia's try to get a kill early.”

Halfhand says “Never push the wave against this disgusting champ because she will freeze on you at level 3. ONLY LAST HIT MINIONS! Make sure you watch your minions hp. She will be jumping onto them if they are low hp. So don't stand next to low hp minions.”

Aethlo says “Irelia has the wave clear advantage. || Irelia wins pre-3. || Irelia wins pre-6. || Irelia is slightly stronger than Annie post-6 (Annie has to chunk Irelia before one-shotting her with full combo). || Annie outscales Irelia. || Tip: Play around your jungle, save your e to dodge her e. Abuse your ranged advantage and chunk her before one-shotting her -she is an all-in champion so you control the pace of the fight and have the utility advantage. Consider taking e second for disengage.”
