How does Irelia counter Jayce?

#1-Hydreigon-Posted 2/15/2013 6:32:05 AM
People have been telling me that she does, but I don't see it. Irelia is super AA reliant, and Jayce just flat out outdamages her in hammer mode. Your AOE keeps her from coming close too.

IDK why people say this. I've played against a ton of Irelias as Jayce, and they all get slaughtered

I'm no expert, but isn't it because Irelia out sustains?

Tryndamere and Nasus outsustain too. They still aren't considered counters

Irelia carries harder. Irelia isn't going to win a straight up trade early on. Its just not what she does. However, about level 9 is where she starts chunking ppl. If Jayce allows her to walk up to him, she can stun him for ~1.5 seconds w/ her true dmg on and beat on him. When he e's her away she can re-engage w/ her Q. By this pt he should have blown half of his health.

Also, Irelia isn't very mana dependent, whereas Jayce is extremely so. If you can dodge a couple of his skill shots you will have drained him unless he went all mana sustain (and if he did u should be able to kill him pretty quick)

Also, for that early on part of the lane where Jayce is stronger, Irelia is very effective at farming out of the brush or at tower if he pushes the lane. You can just pop out, Q a minion or two and run back in the brush.

Never played this match up, but it looks completely skill based to me. Obviously, if both have similar farm, Irelia is going to win a straight up brawl, but that's not how lanes work.

Irelia can go all in better than Jayce, especially if he hasn't been landing his E+Q combos.

It's not a reliable counter but I'd say Jayce has more room for error than Irelia in the matchup. Irelia can just start 9 pots or something and keep try to keep up in farm. When she gets a phage and she hits level 6, her all-in becomes significantly stronger than Jayce's. If Jayce makes the mistake of giving Irelia a free stun (standing next to a low minion) then that'll win Irelia her lane automatically pretty much. If the Jayce gets ahead Irelia can catch up, but if Irelia gets ahead the Jayce is probably boned.

She outscales him, but the thing is that she's so weak early that dying just once pretty much loses her lane, not to mention that she can't really do anything about his harass nor can engage reliably without being smacked around.

Iirc, trynd's sustain is still a joke. Nasus is a pushover early game. Irelia can sustain through Jayce's damage and engage him at will with dash + stun. Jayce usually can't push her away due to the stun, making him lose some of his engage/disengage at will power.
