How to counter Irelia as Vladimir
8
Start with the Tome and rush your Revolver and zone out Irelia. Irelia's lane sustain is completely shutdown which gives you free reign to CS, poke, and kill her.

Go teleport so you can come back and farm if she gets you low on hp. You can also run with ghost, which you can activate just after using W (pool).

How to counter Vladimir as Irelia
57
Vladimir is weak in the early game and you have an advantage over him. You have your Q to dash to him and stun/slow him with your E, and that alone will deal tons of damage. Try to save your E for your stun, not slow, unless your jungler comes to gank.

Remember to activate your (W) and (Q) onto a caster minion, if you have sheen this will instantly kill the minion granting you no CD on (Q) , that way you can walk up to vladimir and have a chance to land a (E) onto him by surprise.

I don't believe that Irelia counters vlad but it can work, first of all try to farm all you can with your Q without getting too much poke. At level 4 to 13 you can kill him by q'ing a minion, stun, W, ult, Q (ignite if you're running it). DON'T TOWERD

How on earth does irelia counter vlad?
Jermell - Posted about Jun 12th, 2014
Explain to me how Irelia could possibly counter vlad. He outranges her so trying to shut him down early game sounds like a good way to end up first blood. He outsustains her so no winning that way. And one of the best ways to kill him is hard cc...which irelia would have to either q, wait to get damaged, then e so the stun works or just facetank some damage and then e...at which point he can troll pool and mitigate all her true damage and run. As an Irelia player I can say Vlad is one of the few that makes me just say NO! GOD NO!

Its simple. Vlad doesn't do well against high dps champs that can close the gap to him. Irelia fits this bill perfectly. A half decent Irelia won't just let him poke her down. As Irelia you can q to a low hp caster minion to kill it and refresh your q. And since the stun on her e procs if both of you are 100% hp you can either e immediately or activate your w and start whaling on him. There is no way he can outdamage you and when he pools you still have your q to catch up and possibly slow him with e if you chose not to use it immediately. Pop ur ult after he pools and that free poke while he cowers to his tower.

good summary - only chance vlad has is to not stand next to low hp minions so irelia cant gapclose for free and start autoattacking. as vlad main i gotta say its a very annoying lane. try stay safe if possible freeze in front of tower. harrasing irelia still works in order to win lane just dont forget to pay attention to lowhp minions

The problem for Vlad is:
Every time he is forced to trollpool, it costs him 20% of his actual life and goes on a really long cooldown afterwards (for usual you leave it at level 1 with 26 seconds). So going face-to-face with him and forcing him to pool is pretty much always worth the damage you get - simply use your w passive/active to sustain yourself - if he now isn't playing really defensive, you'll get at least his flash on the next engage, maybe even more.

Without his pool, unless he got 3 items, you should always get him down - as long as you got ignite, without it still can get quite tricky sometimes.

Vlad's niche in top is being able to outsustain your opponent and slowly wittle down their HP. Generally, he does poorly against champs that can get into your face and do tons of damage, which Irelia is plenty capable of. Irelia can easily hold her own in sustain while her all in damage is far greater than Vlad. If he's not able to abuse his range or keep up in sustain, he will likely lose the match up which is why Irelia is a good counter to Vlad because she can do both.

she can heal up vlads Q poke and her all ins will almost always kill vlad when irelia is 6 or atleast blow a flash/ghost even if vlad pools most of true damage.
