You can't nerf the brokenness of her kit.

She needs a rework.
She is currently in a horrible spot, where she has to have farm in order to be any use to her team. When she does get that little bit of boost Tri Force and Wits End give her though, she suddenly becomes way to strong. no amount of buffing and nerfing will fix that until she is remade to either be an assassain or a tank. The hybrid tank assassin that she is is just too strong by nature.

She is strong from level 1 onwards.

irelia has too much of everything. the entire top lane power creep that happened before they started their nerfing streak, according to xypherous, is a direct result of every new champion released, having to keep up with irelia.

after like a million nerfs shes still one of the most picked top lane champions in the game. so no, probably not. if anything, she needs a rework, which means part of her utility completely removed (her passive and/or her true damage) and the other parts buffed.


on a sidenote, jax nprobably should to be nerfed too. either his base hp reduced or better, remove the ability to leap strike onto allied units. hes one of the best duelist in the game. he doesnt need such a strong escape at the same time. most other powerful duelists in the game are all-in characters with a strong engage, but no escape for a reason.

everytime i see a jax overextend or out of position in a tournament, he literally always gets away with leap strike. his playstyle is too safe and forgiving for making mistakes and allows too much aggression being such a hypercarry at the same time.
