After a few games, Irelia is CHRONICALLY underpowered. When I say chronically, I mean BAD.

Check it out yo.

Q: This skill is decent.. Its just a blinkstrike, you can.. Kinda farm with it? Its ok.

W: Irelia's only good skill. 75 true damage is very nice, as is the lifegain.

E: This skill is ****, its range is too short to be useful, its damage is bad, it scales with AP for NO REASON NO FREAKING REASON. Add to the fact that its hard to actually get off on someone and this skill is easily one of the worst in the game, why doesn't this apply the stun/slow as an on hit effect.

R: So. Bad. The numbers on it look good, but don't let that fool you, this skill does nothing. Lategame it barely clears creepwaves, its cooldown feels way too long for what it does. Its also incredibly hard to aim and move effectively at the same time, plus the aoe is tiny and the life.. Is okay?

As for stats and such, they're good. Irelia is good as a 1v1 dueler.. which means she's awful 90% of the time, especially when champs like Master Yi outdamage her, warwick totally outclasses her in every way..

She's an Urgot people, she's a champ that has no role.

But worse, she has a poor early game because she's melee, its not as bad as some others early game, but its not good.

If she farms and buys damage items, she'll do what any other DPS does, its just other DPSes do it better

Personally, I'm building her tanky right now, relying on Hitein style to see me through.

This feels harsh, but I just don't feel useful playing Irelia, there's nothing I'm doing that can't be done better by another champ.

As a sidenote, Irelia feels like a champ that was designed with Magma chamber in mind, in a 1v1 or a 2v2 Irelia is a great deal stronger due to her natural staying power.. Maybe we'll see once Magma chamber comes out?

Sorry dude, but I downvoted you. You cannot judge if a champion is balanced or not three games in.
Make another thread in 200 games and I'll give you the upvote I own you.

Irelia can rush Goddess Tear pretty good for chain q'ing.

that's all she's got though.
