MatchupsDifficultyFight at level/whenTips/Special BuildGeneral BuildTri+SV+Youmuus (40%CDR Rush)
AatroxMedium4+You can kill him until he gets tanky - easy snowball if you get a lead.StartDorans+pots/Flask/CLOTH+4
flask generally, dorans/cloth+4 if noted in the matchup
4+ she is fairly squishy so its a favorable matchup for irelia, get pink when snowballing
FLASK she will do magic dmg if she maxes Q, Physical if shes maxing E Build hexdrinker when behind
1stTriforce (Sheen>Phage>Stinger)
rushing kindlegem into youmuus after triforce is a good way to rush the 40%CDR which gives 3sec cd with level 5 Q
Aurelion SolEasy4+ all in him level 4+FLASK dodge his passive, care of MSquints+Ghost level1/22ndSV/Youmuus/Steraks/Maw/Omen/GA
after tri get tabis (mercs vs alot of AP) then CDR for the Q 2nd max
Cho'GathMedium4+ care of his 6DORANS use w b4 his silence, dodge his skills3rd-5th
Situational (depends on how ahead/behind you are, if your team needs a tank or dmg)
Tri Omen FH GA vs fullad, start out with a giants belt after triforce (HP first is the most effective stat)
DONT FIGHT PRE 5=>@5 dash into his Q and you win the trade, care 6
FLASK if ahead u can all in him anytime. he can still kill you if you are ahead. Take care of stacks and keep high HP
Situational S-Tier items Youmuus/Maw/Steraks
usually always get one of these as 3rd item in a normal game, other choices can be fine depending on the situation
DianaMedium4+FLASK, try dodging her Qs
Situational Damage items:
BOTRK/Youmuus/Black Cleaver/Mortal Reminder
Dr. MundoMediumanytime if u dodge q'shide behind creeps/ start flask, use e and flask he has nothing to tradeSituational Tanky items:Steraks/GA/Randuins/SV/Deadmans Plate
Dodge his slow field, fight anytime. He doesnt have a great Earlygame as well.
FLASK>PHAGE, can go sheen if you got a kill/leadrarely built but ok items:
Banshees/Wits End/FH/Thornmail/CDRboots/titanic hydra/frozen mallet
all of those have downsides compared to the other items listed, so i usually never build them
EliseEasy4+, all in at level 6, she has no laning ult
FLASK for early sustain, Sheen>triforce (she is squishy even with haunting guise)
FioraMediumlv 1-2 with e, all in after 7
care of her parry, make sure she gets stunned and then trade, Parry(Riposte) 24s CD lv1
solid example build (bruiser)Triforce>Mercs>Steraks>Randuins>SV>BOTRK
again to note here: you can replace items 3-5, but those items will do well vs most teams youll encounter
FizzEasylv1 e+aa ,3+
depends if hes going tank/ap if hes going ap its allin for days if tank then you can trade him as well
GangplankEasy4+, he hurts, but you hurt more after lv4
FLASK make him cs under turret early, if he ults mid/bot you can allin him at 6+
extra notesIf need to b early with 500g~ then 2x dorans is an option
GarenMedium7/9+ dont fight earlier, he will sustain
w before he qs you and just AA/if he beats u, u can still kick his ass at lv9
For boots tabis are really good on this patch with 12% Autoattack-Damage-Reduction, Mercs should be your 2nd choice
GnarMedium4+ when not in megagnar formdont overcommit, he can chase u down
greaves are good, but you will lack the tenacity/aa-dmg reduction which is really good on irelia
GragasEasyanytime if he has no bodyslam upstand behind creeps vs bodyslam, be careful of his R, u can avoid his W
GravesEasy4+, dont take too much dmg early and focus on farming with Q
FLASK, just stand behind creeps and he literally cant damage u at all if u do
Abilitiesmax R>W>Q>E instead of R>W>E>Q since 6.11
HecarimMedium7+ easier the more points in w u have
his q stacks up, fight him before that. care for ignite (many run ignite/TP)
Level 1E vs meleeQ vs ranged
HeimerdingerMediumfarm safely, u can all in when he has no turretsu can easily 100-0 him with triforcemax Q secondwhen snowballing/even lane
IllaoiMedium4/5 when she E's you preferably dont fight at lv 6Contest her E, care for her black cleaver powerspike3 points in E then Q maxwhen grouping/mobile enemy laner
Jarvan IVEasy4/5+, he only has burst with e-q passive, but no followupcare level 2 e-q, make sure to return damage when he uses anythingMasteries
18/0/12 or 18/12/0 both with fervor, it's the best keystone in every matchup
level 4-11 stun him 1.5s after he activates E. you can safely walk out and reengage with W
he is squishy> if even you can 1v1 until level 11. if uncomfortable go DShield>Tabi
JayceEasyplay passive til 6PHAGE keep Q for his knockback/or go when he is in ranged form (5s R CD)Runes
sheen and fuck him note: exchanging kills with karthus is never worth it (dont dive)
standard 129%AS, scaling MR/scaling Armor
standard vs tanks
KarmaEasyanytimedo what u want brehstandard 214%AS, 8.5AD, flat armor/scaling MR
KassadinEasyfree lane, do whateverDont farm /w Q in lane cos of his Evs quinn/pantheon1/2Armor Quints, 2/1 AS Quints,9AS Quints and Scaling MR glyphs+flat armor seals
(not necessary, but it can help)
KatarinaEasy4+ u should outtrade her with more points in w
depends if shes going tank/ap if shes going ap its allin for days if tank then you can trade him as well
if you are facing AP top and AP jungle you can also use scaling HP seals and flat/scaling MR glyphs
KayleEasy5+ dont get dicked on early, play passive 1-4 farm with QHexdrinker if you get dicked on, usually should be easy to allin her
5+ his stuns aint doin shit to your passive, care of his lv6 burst. fight him 7+ again
just survive early, the more points in w you have the easier it is.thanks toQuick general tips
Kha'zixEasyplay safe 1-3, after lv 4 and with sheen kill himdont let him establish lane dominance 1-3, dont get isolated early/u/gwhiteyman
after stunning someone, move towards the direction you think they'll run away between auto attacks
E+aa, 4+ burst him off his mount then kill him, he has a lot of HP and will get harder to kill
care for his couragebar while dueling, he gets it back faster when aaing/Qing you
use your ult on ranged minions to have an easy Q-Reset engage
Lee SinEasy5/7/9 E+AA earlycare for Q ignite cheese, you can be as mobile as him in theoryICU (1mintips)
LissandraEasy7+ all in with sheen
FLASK, Max R>W>E>Q rush sheen, shove her in early to get a free base
when you get ganked and cant escape, try to kill the squishier of the two. you might just get a doublekill as they underestimate your stun+burst
LuluMedium6 all in, if she builds HP its really hard to kill her with her ult upFLASK, very annoying early game if she hits her Qs SHEEN>TRI ALLIN
in any trade try to use ur q in the last second of ur W to dish out the most damage possible (it applies your W)
MalphiteMedium4/5 maybe get a kill to snowball, else farmlaneFLASK farm and roam (just play trundle honestly)
in midgame you can flash+e to have your Q up to finish someone (preferably used on the ADC/other squishies)
MaokaiMedium4-5~ Farm lane Dorans StartDont farm /w Q in lane cos of his passive
Your ult deals significant aoe damage once you have some AD, try to use it on more than one enemy champion in teamfights (also heals u more)
NasusMediumanytime, but really at level 4
you can roam and 5v4 the enemy team, cos he will farm or be a useless tp
vs teemo/renekton it is a good idea to push for an earlier level 2
FLASK, burst his shield with e+w and chase him down to win trade with Q
NidaleeMedium6, she doesnt have an ultFLASK, skill Q first, she has a lot of damage early on 1-6 be careful
NunuEasyannoying til level 4+, just farmeasy kill after sheen phage, not if he is tanky fast

RyzeHardrush hexdrinker and allin himno but seriously just dodge the game
ShacoEasy4+ care of ignite all ins, traps.
he will most likely be squishy so it should be an easy matchup. Shacos are always cheesing tho, so you need to be ready for traps and ignite+Rs
ShenEasy4+, level 6 is a good time to allinW(aablock) 18s CD
4+ dont fight her after she has 2+tanky items. if shes going damage only you can burst her

TeemoMedium1 if he starts Q, if not then level 2. kill him with sheen.FLASK dont let him shove you into turret level 1-3 or you are in for pain
TrundleMedium4/5, he beats u with ult after 6. if u can bait it u can fight very careful of his pillar level 6 and bait his ult (executioners calling)
TryndamereMedium4+, he starts winning again after 2 itemsnot much to say, matchup goes either way with his crits. Play around his R with ur Q
UdyrMediumlv1 e+aa. vs tiger care level 1-4, fight level 6+ he has no real ulteven if he is playing well/dominating lane u can do the level 6 allin
Q-farm level 1-6,rough lane until you can allin him. Take care of his ult into enemy gank
You will lose the early game due to his E+Q spam, take whatever CS you get.
4+ and until 2 items. Dont ever duel her with PD+BOTRK, only with a pink and Q resets
q to a creep next to her, hit her and q again after her condemn
VladimirMedium4+, his early game is pretty hard for you, esp the stacked Q FLASK;Hexdrinker is perfect vs his ult ,go behind minions vs his E . go triforce after Hexdrinker

YorickEasylv 1 e+aa 4+ dont get poked too hard
just all in him 4+ and 7+, if hes building tear he will be squishy, if hes building tank he has little damage
ZacMedium4+ not easy to killmainly a farm lane, dont get caught off guard by a jungler and zac ult
ZedEasyplay safe til 4 go sheen>Triforce and allin his asssave ur Q for his W, maybe throw in a cloth armor while building tri
further matchup explanation
generally 4+ doesnt mean you have a huge disadvantage lv 2-3
but it is much more effective if you fight at level 4 cos of the second point in W
in many of the matchups that you can e+aa in, you can continue that at lv 2-3
just dont do it everytime e is up, save your mana for good trades
MatchupsDifficultyFight at level/whenTips/Special BuildMidlane Build
if you have no tank in your team, you should use a tanky build as seen above
AhriEasyStartFlask/Doransflask generally vs most midlane champs
dorans vs stuff like ekko kata, champs without poke
HEXDRINKER before triforce, try Qing out of her R, over her wall would be the most efficient use
1stTriforceafter tri usually get mercs/tabis
usually 2nd item is hexdrinker for midlane vs APs, if they have low ap dmg you can go with mercs+youmoos/steraks
Aurelion SolEasy4+ all in him level 4+dodge his passive3rd-5th Situational
its really about the specific match, if they have lockdown or if you need more dmg
whenever he uses 2 sand soldiers he has no escape soldier to E to. u can abuse that
dont Q into his wall, itll be cancelled
BrandEasySituational:Frozen Heart
CassiopeiaEasySpirit Visage
Cho'gathMediumtry to dodge his abilitiesBloodthirster/Deaths dance
CorkiEasyobligatory: dont fight him when package is upRanduins
Last whisper (mortal reminder)
LW is only really good if you have lots of AD, so i.e. Maw+cleaver. I'd never build it with 2 tank items.
EzrealEasyBOTRK/Wits EndBotrk is only good if you are kinda tanky/Wits end mainly vs a lot of APs
