League of Legends Champions


The Blade Dancer




The Noxian occupation of Ionia produced many heroes, none more unlikely than young Irelia of Navori. Trained in the ancient dances of her province, she adapted her art for war, using the graceful and carefully practised movements to levitate a host of deadly blades. After proving herself as a fighter, she was thrust into the role of resistance leader and figurehead, and to this day remains dedicated to the preservation of her homeland.

“There was a time when I danced only for myself. Now, I dance for the First Lands.”


Passive: Ionian Fervor

Irelia gains 1 Ionian Fervor stack for every enemy champion hit by her abilities, or if she hits at least one non-champion, stacking up to 5 times. Ionian Fervor lasts for 6 seconds, with basic attacks against champions and large monsters refreshing the duration.

Ionian Fervor: Irelia gains 8 / 12 / 16% attack speed (based on level). At maximum stacks, Irelia gains 40 / 60 / 80% (at levels 1/7/13) bonus attack speed and her attacks deal an additional 15-66 (based on level) (+ 25% bonus attack damage) on-hit magic damage.

Bladesurge (Q)

Range: 600

Cooldown: 12 / 11 / 10 / 9 / 8

Mana Cost: 20

Passive: Enemy champions and monsters hit by Flawless Duet and Vanguard's Edge's initial barrage are marked for 5 seconds.

Active: Irelia dashes to the target enemy, dealing 5 / 25 / 45 / 65 / 85 (+ 60% attack damage) physical damage, applying on-hit effects and healing herself for 12 / 14 / 16 / 18 / 20% of her total attack damage. Bladesurge deals 55 / 75 / 95 / 115 / 135 bonus damage to minions.

Bladesurge's cooldown is refunded if the target was marked or dies to Bladesurge.

Defiant Dance (W)

Range: 825

Cooldown: 20 / 18 / 16 / 14 / 12

Mana Cost: 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90

First cast: Irelia aligns her blades around her, channeling for a few seconds, during which she reduces incoming physical damage by 50% (+ 7% per 100 AP). Defiant Dance cannot be interrupted.

Second cast: Irelia swipes with her blades in the target direction, dealing 10 / 25 / 40 / 55 / 70 (+ 50% AD) (+45% of ability power) physical damage to all enemies around her and in a line, increased by up to 100% based on channel time.

The second cast activates automatically toward the cursor's direction at the end of the duration.

Flawless Duet (E)

Range: 775

Cooldown: 18 / 16.5 / 15 / 13.5 / 12

Mana Cost: 50

Irelia sends a blade to the target location for 3.5 seconds. While active, Irelia may re-activate Flawless Duet to send another blade toward another location.

Once both blades have been placed and after a short delay, they fly toward each other, dealing 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+80% of ability power) magic damage and stunning enemies caught in the crossfire for 0.75 seconds.

If Irelia does not re-activate Flawless Duet the second blade will automatically be placed at her current location unless she is affected by Crowd Control.

Vanguard's Edge (R)

Range: 1000

Cooldown: 140 / 120 / 100

Mana Cost: 100

Irelia launches a barrage of blades through a wide line in the target direction, exploding outwards upon hitting a champion, dealing 125 / 225 / 325 (+70% of ability power) magic damage to all enemies struck.

The blades form into a spade-shaped perimeter for 2.5 seconds. Enemies that pass the blades are dealt 125 / 200 / 275 (+70% of ability power) magic damage, and are slowed by 90% for 1.5 seconds.
