Irelia Matchups Overview

Irelia General information

Irelia tips and tricks

Look to trade when your Passive is up as it gives you an increased amount of attack speed which will help you when it comes to trading.

It’s tempting to use just your BladesurgeQ to farm with. While the mana cost is small, it racks up in the end. Try and focus on using your basic attacks to last hit with.

Before engaging or looking for an all in, check the minimap. If you go in just as the enemy Jungler approaches, you will end up dying for it.
