MatchupDifficultyFight at level/whenTips/Special BuildGeneral BuildComments
AatroxMedium4+, You can kill him until he gets tanky - easy snowball if you get a lead
Dodge his Q with your Q, rush executioners calling. He deals magic damage with ult, stacking armor only wont help if hes ahead
flask=standard start;dorans/cloth+4 are situational for harder matchups
AkaliEasy4+ she is fairly squishy so its a favorable matchup for irelia
FLASK, hexdrinker when shes ahead, let her Q run out and bait her shroud without using your W, all in after
1stTriforce + boots1 in between
rushing kindlegem into caulfields warhammer 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 level1/22ndTitanic
after tri get tabis (mercs vs long CCs)
lv1 e+aa, 4+ , move out of her outer W-cone by Q-ing to minions or engaging her
FLASK save your Q to follow her when she walljumps/Ws, Dodge stun, try to stun her before she walljumps
Next items are purely situational . Get a mix of 1-2 more dmg items rest tanky (both full dmg or full tank builds are bad almost every game)
Cho'GathMedium4+ care of his 6
DORANS use w b4 his silence, dodge his skills,If he Rs a minion u can trade him unless he already has 2 items finished
Situational (depends on how ahead/behind you are and if you can afford to build AD)
i use Tri Omen FH GA vs fullad, start out with a giants belt after triforce (HP first is the most effective stat) mix in a damage item
DariusMediumDONT FIGHT PRE 5=>@5 dash into his Q and you win the tradeFLASK if ahead u can all in himSituational S-Tier items Maw/Steraks/Titanic Hydra/Randuins/SV/BORK
DianaMedium4+, trade anytime and outsustain her
FLASK, try dodging her Qs. Hexdrinker hardcounters her
Situational Damage items:
Black Cleaver/Mortal Reminder
BOTRK is nice to get when facing at least one tank and your team has no damage to kill him. To really use the passive u need some armorpen from TBC or LW though
Dr. MundoMediumanytime if u dodge q'shide behind creeps/ start flask, use e and flask he has nothing to tradeSituational Tanky items:Steraks/GA/Deadmans/PlateBanshees/FH
Dodge his slow field, fight anytime. He doesnt have a great Earlygame as well.
FLASK go in after he wasted Q, his passive wore off on you. play the sustain battle
rarely built but ok items:
Wits End/Thornmail/CDRboots/berserkergreaves/frozen mallet/edge of night/Youmuus
all of those have downsides compared to the other items listed, so i rarely ever 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, hug a wall when she ults u
FizzEasylv1 e+aa ,3+
if he is full ap get hexdrinker and all in him for days. he wins short trades, try to stick to him with your Q
lv1 e+aa when his passive is on cd, 4+ move out his Q and go for a long trade
FLASK> take care of ganks, his knockup and taunt+base damage will hurt a lot in a 1v2/2v2 top
4+, he hurts, but you hurt more after lv4. if he ults mid/bot you can allin him after 6+
FLASK make him cs under turret early, q to a minion next to his barrel and destroy it>trade. care for exhaust
extra notesIf you need to b early with 500g~ then buying a dorans shield/blade instead of a e.g. a health crystal
GarenMedium7/9+ dont fight earlier, he will sustain. keep trading so he doesnt heal up
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 with 12% Autoattack-Damage-Reduction, Mercs should be your 2nd choice when facing very long ccs (e.g. morgana Q, annie Passive)
GnarMedium4+ when not in megagnar form and close to it
flask, else cloth+4 if u struggle> dont overcommit in lane, he can chase u down. bait his jump and allin him
greaves are very goldefficient, but you will lack the tenacity/aa-dmg reduction which are really good on irelia (lets face it, her passive is useless)
GragasEasyanytime if he has no bodyslam up, you win long trades
FLASK stand behind creeps vs bodyslam, abuse his pushing to manipulate the wave - he only has AoE skills and cant freeze
GravesEasy4+, dont take too much dmg early and focus on farming with QFLASK stand behind creeps and he literally cant damage u at allAbilities
maxing R>W>Q>E or R>W>E>Q is both viable and depends on lane/game
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 melee , Q vs ranged and some other matchups (i.e. GP)
HeimerdingerMediumfarm safely, u can all in when he has no turrets.u can easily 100-0 him with triforce, q reset on turretsmax Q secondwhen snowballing/even lane/in need of mobility to be useful
4/5 when she E's you preferably dont fight at lv 6 unless you can bait ult beforehand
Contest her E, care for her black cleaver powerspike, good movement wins this lane for you
3 points in E then Q maxwhen grouping/mobile enemy laner
Jarvan IVEasy4/5+, he only has burst with e-q passive, but no followup
care level 2 e-q, make sure to return damage when he uses anything. Move out of his Q, he can setup good ganks. make sure to ward.
level 4-11 stun him 1.5s after he activates E. you can safely walk out and reengage with W
3 points in E then max W
JayceMediumfight whenever he misses/wastes his e-q comboPHAGE Tabis later save Q for knockback/switchform (5s CD on R), abuse minion aggro level 1-3Runes
sheen and fuck him note: exchanging kills with karthus is never worth it (dont dive)
Primary Precision: TreePress the Attack> Triumph > Legend:Alacrity/Tenacity > Coup de Grace
KarmaMediumtrade 4+, roam if she has 2-3 items. You can allin if she wastes RFLASK, roam once she has some items. You wont be able to kill her. Secondary Resolve: Iron Skin/Mirror Shell > Second Wind
KassadinEasyanytimeDont farm /w Q in lane cos of his EOR
KatarinaEasy4+ u should outtrade her with more points in w
FLASK use your Q and stun wisely. sometimes its good to drop hp when she ults so you can stun her.
Secondary Domination: Sudden Impact>Zombie Ward/Ingenious Hunter(Tytanic Hydra CD)
5+ dont get dicked on early, play passive 1-4 farm with Q, trade when her e is on CD
Hexdrinker 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
FLASK 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)
7+ all in with sheen, she has no sustain and is squishy. you can stop her E with a stun
FLASK Treads later, 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)
4/5 maybe get a kill to snowball, else farmlane. fight when he misses his E
FLASK farm and roam, when teamfighthing try to stay away from his E
in midgame you can flash+e to have your Q up to finish someone (preferably used on the ADC/other squishies)
4-5~ Farm lane, he can outtrade in short trades (/w bamis cinder and his high base dmg)
Dont farm /w Q in lane cos of his passive. Use q after his Q when trading to stick to him. he has huge lockdown with w+r+q for ganks.
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)
MordekaiserMediume+aa lv1, 4+ allin after his 3rd QFLASK hexdrinker helps a lot, get sheen early when if u killed him
4+, challenge every CS as long as u can duel him. > prioritize roaming once you cant
roam and 5v4 the enemy team, he will farm or be a useless tp
vs teemo/renekton/gp it is a good idea to push for an earlier level 2. This will allow u to have some breathing space for csing for maybe 2-3 minutes
4+, outsustain him and burst his shield. take care of his high base dmg+bamis cinder
FLASK burst his shield with e+w and chase him down to win trade with Q your W outtrades him if u can stick
NidaleeMedium6, she doesnt have an ultFLASK, skill Q first, she has a lot of damage early on 1-6 be careful
when popping a flask lv 1-3 with full Mana, just Q+E or E+Q the enemy laner, or u wont use the mana reg and damage of your flask (ofc only do this when you outtrade the enemy with it)
NunuEasyannoying til level 4+, just farmeasy kill after sheen phage, not if he is tanky fast
OlafMediumpassive Q-farm until 4. fight when he misses Qdont fight him once he gets tankier, care of the black cleaver spike
OrnnMedium4+ fight him until level 9 walk parallel to him to dodge his w
PantheonHardpassive until 6, he has no ult for lane. all in at 6 (preferably /w sheen)DSHIELD > Early Tabis
you counter poppy after some points in w. take care of high base dmg+bamis cinder
be wary of her w, it stops your q; You can kill her easily after triforce, step on her shield to destroy it, stun her when she ults
passive Q-Farm til 4, fight when she misses Q and save your Q for her E or to disengage
FLASK or CLOTH+4if u struggle, also 1-2 armor quints and 3 points in E help, rush sheen. tabis if u lose. Respect her level 6+ roams when you tp/when shes missing
RammusEasy4+ just wait out his ult level 6. easy kill level 7+
DORANS. he only kills you if he taunts you into turret or when he sets up a gank
lv1 e+aa u win from 7+ if he has no big lead. dont do anything level 3/4 unless 0 fury
FLASK>DoubleDBlade or something like FLASK>Health Crystal+Cloth ; autoattack him with w after he used his abilities, his QWE all have long CDs
4+ focus on not dying early try to trade when he used his 5 stacks on minions
FLASK/CLOTH+4 His buildpath usually is full ad so sheen>triforce allin is easy
level 1 and 4+, sustain level 2&3. try to trade long 4+ and play around her shield
FLASK Tabis later, go for early sheen, her shield is up for 1.5s you can time your E+Q or only Q to go in right when it wears off (takes practice)
play passive til 7, he will zone you with q. Fight when overheated without Q or Q on CD
try to walk behind him to dodge his q and e, dont get kited after your Q
RyzeMedium4+ when he used W. Allin at 6, his ult is worse than yours in laneflask>sheen, trade after he used W(14s CD)
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
4+, level 6 is a good time to allin. take care of his base dmg+bamis cinder
W(aablock) 18s CD, stun him when he ults. Gauge fast if u can follow his ult and win the skirmish. Most times its the better decision to push top cos he will tp back

dont get bullied around without returning damage,
lv 1 e+aa/if he proxies lv1 start Q, fight anytime. If he proxies it's a farmlane

VolibearHard4+ let him go on you and turn on W, short trades, dont allin. fight 7 and 9

ZedEasylv1 e+aa then play 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 - keep an eye on your mana pool though
