general guide on how to counter Irelia
Avoid trading with Irelia when she has her Passive stacked as she will out trade you. Keep an eye on the little bar under her health.
When trading with Irelia, keep an eye on low health minions in your lane. Irelia may use her on the minion to escape the trade or run you down after a skirmish.
Irelia benefits from extended trades. Try and avoid going for extended trades with her as she will always win them.
Try and lock Irelia down at the start of the fight. This will make it much harder for her to jump around your team and get resets on her .
Avoid fighting too close together as it will allow Irelia to use her Ultimate on multiple people and allow her to reset. Stand together but not super close together.
Try and fight after Irelia uses her as it is one of her best tools to start a fight. Ideally, try and also fight around her Ultimate as it will reduce her chances of getting resets.
Irelia is very strong whenever she has her Passive fully stacked. Avoid fighting with her at this time.
When Irelia hits level 6, her kill pressure intensifies as her Ultimate is a very good duelling tool.
Irelia benefits from extended trades, so try and avoid going for them whenever you can. Keep them short and sweet.
