Irithel was released a few weeks back and with much excitement, I purchased her package immediately to try the hero in classic and ranked matches. It did take me awhile to write this guide (sorry!) as I wanted to be comprehensive when covering her abilities.
With Jungle Heart, Irithel is currently the only hero in Mobile Legends that is able to launch attacks while moving. Coupled with Strafe and Force of Queen, Irithel is excellent in harassment and possess great crowd controlling ability even in early game. Her ultimate, the Heavy Crossbow switches her weapon to deal explosive burst damage to enemies within specified radius. With her excellent mobility, Irithel is definitely a tough marksman for opponents to crack down.
Interesting Fact – Currently, Irithel is the only hero in Mobile Legend that sits on a mount. She is also the only hero that is able to move and attack at the same time.
Similar to the other premium Marksmen, Irithel costs 32000 battle points or 599 diamonds (ouch!)

Item Build #6 Blade of Despair/Deadly Blade/Malefic Roar
Situational based. I like to format my gear setting in this manner so that i can switch accordingly. But generally Blade of Despair or Malefic Roar are my top picks to boost your attack for late game combat.
Launch arrows in front within specified area, long distance, great for harassing in early game.
Force of Queen
Deals damage within specified radius and slows enemies up to 80% for 2 seconds. Huge area, great slow effect to crack down on opponents.
Switches her basic attack to have a small area of effect burst damage. In addition, Irithel leaps forward to specified area, great skill for initiating or escaping. Downside? 30 seconds cool down.
Jungle Heart (Passive)
In normal mode, Irithel’s basic attack shoots 3 arrows dealing 45% damage each. She is able to move and shoot at the same time as well.
Karrie remains as one of the favourite bans in the game (that tells you something). Regardless, Irithel is a good choice for ranked matches. With her mobility, Irithel is able to engage opponents while strategically move herself. However, her slow attack speed puts her in a strong disadvantaged when compared to other marksman out there. She can be easily countered by a chasing Minotaur and for 32000 battle points, Irithel is one hero that you might want to consider before purchasing.
