Items

I start with Doran's Blade for the extra 100 hp and the lifesteal, it may only be 3% but it's definitely good enough to hold you in lane long enough to harass and farm up to your Vampiric Scepter.

I grab boots of speed in between Doran's Blade and Vampiric scepter just to get you around a little bit faster.

Why the Vampiric Scepter? I personally buy it because the 10 AD on Doran's Blade is sufficient enough to last you quite awhile, at least when you can auto attack minions to heal back up.

The brutalizer gives a very good amount of Attack Damage, increasing your abilities damage and passively cutting through armor. The Brutalizer is only 1337 gold is not too hard to come by and its well worth it.

Mercury threads well riven is a little bit squishy and u need tenacity for reduced slows,taunts,snares etc.

This may surprise you, Sheen gives Mana and Ability Power (nothing that Riven uses at all) However look at it. it says "Every time you use an ability, your next physical attack deals =100% damage. this is a free crit on your next auto attack, which conveniently is right after your Q.

Trinity Force, as mentioned with Sheen increases your next physical attack's damage after use of a skill + extra move speed and health (What not to like ?!)
