when she was free I did really well
killed a Renekton and took his lane AND was more useful than him in teamfights (which like, rarely happens for me because he usually destroys me in lane)

now I bought her and I've done 2 games, one against a Shen and one against a Kha and both killed me easily

Irelia has low harass early game. Her main form of damage is autos, which gets outclasses by abilities early-game. Her Q commits you into a fight, which she often can't win early-game. Her E primarily a defensive tool that stops enemy melee harass/all-in cold.

She can literally trade against anybody after she maxes out W, except Jax, who has an inherent advantage over her.

Yeah Irelia's sustain is her biggest strength so drawing out the match is in irelia's best interest. Remember that your Q does on hit effects so if you activate your W then Q it will do the true damage. Once you hit 6 and get your ult you can trade a lot more effectively and even get a kill if you were able to out sustain your opponent.

Also Irelia is one of the best champs for farming minions under tower. So letting the tower drop a minion low and then using Q you can last hit minions quite easily. Also sometimes its better to Q a low health minion near your opponent and kill it and then go after your opponent. They will try to use escapes or flash and your Q will still be up to use so you can chase.

E is a nice tool since it offers you the ability to disengage or bait enemies. But I'd avoid early game skirmishes until you get W up a few points to out-sustain your opponent. True damage is just too strong once you start fighting with a decent level W.
You like it or you don't, but i hate people saying it's 'an acquired taste." That's just a cop out. - bookwormbabe29 on beer.

General rule is that after 3 points of W, you'll be able to out trade near anyone in a simple fight. You may have kill potential at that point. nd then again at 6 with your Ulti.

Also remember that her Q resets when you kill anything including minions.

Means you can use it to double dash at an enemy of a minion that's about to die if they're hiding behind thir casters and you know you can kill them.

thanks for the responses

I'm guessing attack speed is important on her to get the most out of w
