Tips

Playing As IreliaSquare Irelia
  • If you are against a ranged champion, it is best to rush Sheen item Sheen and synergize with Bladesurge Bladesurge to farm up as you are not going to attack them as much and allows you to properly CS to not get behind. While in a melee matchup, Tiamat item Tiamat is the best way to go for its wave clear and DPS for 1v1s.
  • Timing and use of your abilities properly allows you to maximize damage output by quickly stacking and maintaining Ionian Fervor Ionian Fervor.
  • Placement of your Flawless Duet Flawless Duet is critical to stunning targets in addition to gaining stacks of Ionian Fervor Ionian Fervor.
  • Large/epic monsters and Champions that have been marked by Flawless Duet Flawless Duet or Vanguard's Edge Vanguard's Edge are temporarily visible through fog of war. This can be used to your advantage to speed jungle clears or by ambushing enemy champions with Bladesurge Bladesurge.
  • In the early game, after maxing your Q - Bladesurge Bladesurge, it is best to max your E - Flawless Duet Flawless Duet second because you can use it against Blue Caster MinionSquare caster minions to lower their health and grant resets to Bladesurge Bladesurge.
Playing Against IreliaSquare Irelia
  • When Irelia has used Vanguard's Edge Vanguard's Edge on you, it is best to wait till the blades despawn due to the additional damage and disarmament you will take when you walk out of it.
  • Once Irelia has engaged in a teamfight, you are prioritized to focus her as she has control over the teamfight with Vanguard's Edge Vanguard's Edge and can use Flawless Duet Flawless Duet to stun your whole team.
  • As a tank in the early game against Irelia, the essential items you need are Ninja Tabi item Ninja Tabi and Bramble Vest item Bramble Vest as that will lower the damage and reduce the healing of Bladesurge Bladesurge
  • Champions with natural True damage from their abilities will negate the damage reduction from Defiant Dance Defiant Dance. Taking Ignite Ignite against Irelia is also a good option due to the healing reduction and true damage aswell.
