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

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. AFTERSHOCK IS OKAY IF YOU ARE SURE YOU CAN LAND YOUR HOOKS. 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.”

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. It's a pain, especially with the new BOTRK build they tend to go for. If they do end up going BOTRK you can sort of get around it by building Ninja Tabi. 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.”

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.”
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.”

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.”

The_Unf0rgiv3n says “Irelia is quite weak early game. Abuse that fact and trade her as much as possible, because after trinity force, she can start to hurt a little. You can block her stun and her ultimate with your windwall. If she's playing too aggressive and winning most of the trades, rush tabis first item. If you can manage to dodge her stun and outtrade her, go for PD first item.”

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. ”

Pathetic Singed says “Dodging her E is easy and her Q can be cancelled by your W. When she R's you and Q's onto you, fling her the other way and run through the opening of the R.”

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.”

Yamikaze says “This matchup is not as hard as it was before her rework, since we can now [[Wind wall]] her [[Flawless Duet]] and [[Vanguard's Edge]]. Will be updated once i have played some games against her.”

Sylvan Lore says “Irelia is an absolute menace in the mid lane for immobile scaling carries like Orianna. She can kill you from level 2 onwards and throughout you will have very little kill pressure on her without substantial jungle support. Zhonyas is a great early buy into this matchup so that you can avoid her all in if her Ult lands on you. Dont underestimate her ability to jump on you and burst you with just a Q and E once she has Tiamat. Do your best to avoid solo deaths and match her roams in order to minimize her impact. The usual on good thing about this is that their team is likely to lack the magic damage of a control mage in the mid lane. Cleanse can work decently for her stun, but she will likely still kill you. I would recommend either Exhaust or Barrier depending on whether or not you expect her to take Teleport or Ignite. Recommend: Exhaust and Vs. AD Assassin. ”

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 “Broken champ... Don't fight her when her passive is stacked. Play at YOUR side of the lane. Good irelia players will animation cancel their E, so watch out if she suddenly plays aggro. Also don't stay close to low hp minions.”
Yeager's Master Viktor Guide by Yeager | Viktor Player
Yeager says “One of the hardest matchups for Ekko. She is super mobile, so she can easily dodge most of your damage but she will also shred you in extended fights with conqueror and a stacked passive. You don't have a lot of options in this lane because it's in her favor at all stages of the game. Even if she loses, she can simply buy wit's end and auto-win. When trading, you want to go for short trades that procs your passive and electrocute, and then you BACK OFF. Irelia is insane in extended trades, so you want to avoid that. Left click on her champion and keep an eye on how many stacks she has on her passive. If it's close to full then don't attempt to trade at all, and just wait it out. Use your E to dodge her Flawless Duet. (She can animation cancel it with her Q, so be careful and always be ready) Early game you should just let her push the wave while you farm under the turret. It keeps you safe from her and the enemy jungler. You should keep doing that until you have enough AP to instantly clear the wave and just roam. Your gameplan against Irelia should be to constantly roam and get your teammates ahead. ”

Yeager says “She can easily out-trade you if she gets within range and has her passive stacked. Don't ever stay close to low-hp minions as she can dash to them. Never push unless you can completely shove the lane. Play safe entire laning phase and wait for ganks. Her E is a skillshot that she must hit in order to get a Q reset on you. Dodging that makes it much harder harder for her to engage. ”

eiensiei says “Surviving this lane is all about paying close attention to allied minions' HP, as she her Q resets if it kills her target. I'll generally make a point to stay behind the line my ranged minions form in lane. I'll poke her with E without going for passive procs. I'll usually only use my Q if I see one of my creeps getting low on HP and predict she's going to dash to it - if I hit, I'll follow it up with a full combo. Keeping the wave next to my tower is a must or any minion I try to last hit brings the risk of her all-in. Her first power-spike is Sheen and after she finishes Trinity Force, I won't be able to touch her unless I bait her into diving.”

Yeager says “Don't trade when her passive is fully stacked, she will just run you down. Don't stay near low health minions, or she will use those to close the distance and get her Q reset. Her E and R are skillshots which can be dodged. Getting boots early will help with that. Seekers armguard rush can be of great help. ”

Polarshift says “Hard to catch and very strong in the early and migame. She can engage hard on you if you ever misposition, so be careful, since you will never outdamage her if she has 5 stacks.”
