Irelia runes?

Wondering what the standard for her is, just running a basic bruiser page right now Arpen Reds, Armor yellows, MR/lvl blues and Flat Health Quints. Anything else optimal for her?

Probably better to go for attack speed reds. She doesn't really need much armor pen since she deals true damage.

This. AS quints are also good.

Irelia doesn't really benefit from Armor Pen like a lot of the other more common tops. I usually just run 15 flat AD, Armor Yellows, and MR Blues, but you can get suuuuuuuuuuuuper specific if you really want.

HP Regen quints used to be all the rage. I've seen attackspeed reds work. Movement speed is always an option. Health/lvl yellows or quints could also work in some cases. You can run just about anything.

may not seem like it, but armor pen actually can help you a lot. post-nerf I remember seeing wickid using a pure armor pen build (bc + lw) and with those alone he could beat pretty much anybody 1v1.

What I'm currently running is something along the lines of:

AS Reds
Armour Yellows
MRes/ Level Blues
AD Quints

It's not perfect, but it's been working for me, although I would think move speed or health would fit better.

This is correct.


The +15 ad start is what I believe to be optimal in most match ups with health regen subbing for ad in quints in particularly hard match-ups.

People forget her Q has a 1.0 total ad ratio. It really helps to make sure you get the last hit with Q through AD in your runes so that it refreshes and refunds mana. Makes csing under the turret a breeze.


Armor pen in runes and items has curbed effectiveness because Irelia's primary source of damage is her true damage on her W so she's already bypassing armor. People should use that gold to instead build bulky after a few offensive items so that they don't blow up instead.
