I've been trying her out lately, either doing really well or being turned into a crater, I think that has more to do with solo queue. I've mostly made her as a burst damage early-mid game with dps late game, using Triforce > Starks > BF based weapon.

How do her tanky and hybrid builds work out for people? And I've never really went "Tanky" on a non-tank before, can anyone enlighten me to how that may work for when my solo queue teams need me to build a bit beefier?

Or to be more general, how do most people go about building "tanky" but not quite "tank"? Sorry, I'm pretty noob.

Triforce to GA is how i usually go. After GA its something with the Recurve Bow. I start with a cloth armor and depending if I get wriggles I just use that for the GA.

I go Wriggles, Mercs, Triforce. After that its situational, if I'm getting blown up Banshees then GA and if im not then something with AS.

Is the lantern for going jungle irelia? I've never tried that but would be willing too, I heard she just isn't as good as a the more common junglers.

I read Wriggles is a situational item if you need to be able to stay in the lane better. I don't get it if I'm rolling, for one. Save the Vampuric staff for the starks.

Thats what I thought, but if it works for others I'll give it a try. In challenging games, or when the enemy is too durable for her burst to be effective, is when I struggle with Irelia.

it was suggested to me to build her like Xin in those situations, but I have no idea how to build him or any other tanky-dps :P

Wriggles > Starks > Sheen > Randuin's > Triforce > Banshee's

That's how I build most of my melee champions tbh lol (Excluding wriggles if they're not jungling)
