How it works

  1. You rush Trinity Force.
  2. You play Irelia as Bruiser. You build some damage and go tanky.

How to play

  1. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. Are they heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.

Tips and Tricks

  1. You are an ultimate minion killer, thanks to your Q. You can farm better than most champions. Use it for your advantage!
  2. Combo: You can cast R, then Flash forward to engage, catch unsuspecting enemies and damage them.
  1. Use Bladesurge to cover great distances by targeting low life minions on your way to champion targets.
  2. Defiant Dance is not interrupted by crowd control, try timing it for incoming disables.
  3. Flawless Duet does not have a maximum travel distance, try using it in creative ways.
