League of Legends Hero Guides - Irelia

Posted Tue, Nov 30, 2010 by Stow

The newest champion to the League, Irelia sports an array of skills designed to counter the current metagame of League of Legends. Shrugging off disables in teamfights, healing at ludicrous speed, and delivering plenty of unmitigated true damage are what she brings to the table. She's even capable of jungling, and like most new heroes, she has a few new tricks up her sleeve that other heroes wish they could use. We break down her new skills and how they can be best used to your benefit next match in our League of Legends Hero Guide to Irelia!

Controlling your Transcendent Blades is tricky. They are fired off much like Karthus’s Lay Waste, meaning that the moment you press the button after summoning them, it will fire a blade in that direction your mouse is pointed in every time you press it until you fire 4 blades or 10 seconds pass. This can be difficult in the middle of a big melee, so focus on making these blades count. If you’re untouched, aim directly at wounded heroes. If you’re being focused, aim at as many creeps as you can hit for a big life boost. If you hit with all 4, this does very good damage for an ultimate.
