I been trying to learn Irelia recently but I find her much harder to use than Xin. She doesn't have the I charge and face roll on keyboard till you are dead combo, plus I find her Ult to be really awkward in team fights. Anyone have some general tips that can help? Do you spam Ult as quickly as possible for damage during team fights? Or one every now and then? Or save it for minions to heal? Does her Ult trigger Shen proc? I.e if I shoot the blade once does my next auto attack proc Shen? Also, what mastery do you run (non-jungle). I use 0/9/21 because its "good for everything", but some more specialized mastery could help. Thanks in advance.

If the enemy is clumped together and I can hit 4 or 5 of them then yes, otherwise I'll save it and use it to burst down the carry im focusing if I need that extra damage. You shouldn't be saving it to heal from minions in team fights.

Yes, each blade procs sheen

Pretty much all mastery setups are good for Irelia. Mastery builds among the top players varies quite a bit. Wickd/sologamer 0/21/9, Voyboy 12/7/11, Regi 2/7/21
Becrutched 21/0/9 or 0/9/21, Chaox 0/9/21, Atlanta 19/0/11,9/21/0,0/21/9.
Everyone will have differing opinions on masteries so it all comes down to personal preference imo.
