Akali or Irelia?

The only faults with akali is that silences kills her so easily. A good chunk of her survivability is from the spell vamp. I've had multiple instances when a rather squishy shaco or teemo or tristana was chasing me with around 200 health and I popped shroud, waited for them to be in it, and just burst on them, giving me a kill and walking away with 500 or 1k health.
She has trouble taking down tanky champions too, but that's not a big issue.

Not sure about Irelia, haven;t played her that much, but when I go against her as Akali, I can burst her down early/mid game easily, but gets a lot harder late game, where the HP and magic resist comes at you.

I think Irelia and Akali are rather similar champs, both would do a burst of damage with AP build and Lich Bane, but due to the passive, Akali should be dealing much more damage than Irelia at 1v1; on the other hand, Irelia could do a not bad damage with her ult to the crowd, also her passive, W and ult gave her a little bit survivability. If you confident with your skills, go with Akali, somehow the hp, mr etc would be higher for Irelia at late game, but you should be able to dominate the mid game and make your advantage over Irelia at late game.

Well it depends how do you figure Irelia to be. I see her as an AD type champ, built like a Yi, but she also makes for a hybrid based on her skills.

Akali is more established so it won't be hard to find the right playstyle.

I bought Irelia cause she was new, and haven't really been able to do well with her.

Misleading posts all around. Akali is a stronger champ currently. Irelia is a breath of fresh air since she's new, but even top players are struggling to play her. In the flip side, these same top players wreck with Akali. She has insane chase, pretty insane escape by dodging to creeps, and outrageous DPS.

Irelia is an attack speed champ (to make the most of her w's passive).
