Irelia Matchups & Counters
Detailed information on how to play matchups and counters
avoid her Charm
Beside her Light Binding , she is quite easy to assassinate.
His Siphoning Strike is his primary weapon and weakness. Deny him farm by freezing the wave and you can handle him pretty easily.
Blinding Dart makes your auto-attacks useless. Proceed with caution.
Watch out for his clone.
Dodge his Chum The Waters and assassinate him quickly.
Ziggs's kit has great poke damage and CC. Watch out for his high damage attacks and combos. Be careful!
Zed Living Shadow is his mobility. Track him wherever he goes, and use your stun accordingly.
His Cull The Meek allows him to heal in team fights and solo, making him harder to kill. Make sure you have an advantage before him.
Akali is a matchup of skill. Her mobility makes her quite dangerous. Land all of your stuns and kill her quickly.
This build is not 100% perfect, I still have a lot to learn about this champion. But I can give some small knowledge I have after playing about 50 games with her with a 60 percent win rate. Hope this little, imperfect guide helps you in some way and you're free to give your suggestions and criticism to me. Thanks!
