Introduction

riven is a really cool champion than i enjoy alot. i see how ever too much tank and jungle builds , i play her as a lane (solotop) (or duo if you have no jungler) AD damage dealer than can deal tons of damage to single targets and to finish enemys easily and quickly with your ultimate . Feel free to criticise , this is my first build and this is my way to play her ( i got pretty awsome scores ) and i share it

Pros/Cons

Pros:
- Very Mobile]
- Can Fit Almost Any Team -Squishy
- First Ad Shield In The Game - Not So Good Early
- Tons Of Damage - Slightly Item Dependant
- Very Short Cooldowns When Skill Is Maxed - Easily Countered
- Finished (or killsteals =D) Extremly Good - CC owns her
- All Of Her Damage Skills Are Aoe
- And Most Important : Fun 2 Play

Runes

My runes are pretty logical armor pen is a must , you will solo top u might be against AD so some armor , all your spells deal phisical damage so you need attack damage , if you dont have the runes , here are some runes that can fi her ( not ideal however)

armor
magic restist
attack speed (not alot she needs to space her abiltys to use more her passive )
Lifesteal (why not )
Spell Vamp (if you only play AP and have no money for Ad , u need to know that u do use ur spells alot to do damage so why not )
Speed (its good to almost any champion)
Health (she is squishy after all )
CoolDown Reduction

Masteries

Thats What I Recommend . Nuff Said


Guide Top

Items

Start out with a doran blade or boots and health pots , farm and maybe get kills . come back when u have money to get lvl 1 boots and vampririk septre (starting with vampirik sceptre makes you too squishy ). go farm again and finish your boots And make a go for your infinty edge , than get a black cleaver , now that you have a lot of damage you can get yout force of trinity , finish it with a bloodthirster if you do good you can sell your boots ( at the end ) and get phantom Dancer

Summoner Spells

Flash : op , Amazing , alawys you to flash and ult to finish or flash and stun for a gank

Exhaust : always good to reduce that damage to win a 1v1 that you wuld loose or stop a carry in a teamfight , also great for chasing and running or counter towerdiveing
Ghost : mmm ya why not pretty good

Heal : WHY its ussless a bad choice for me

The Rest is not recommended but ofc if you are level 5 do what u can


Guide Top

Skills

At the beggining i maxed my Q i saw it sucked , and if you max Q you will have to max W right ater and low lvl E = low level shield = death , i love stopping a kharthus ult with my E

W is just awsome even with a low stun the damage is very good and cant farm

E great spell , first AD shield in the game , very low cooldown

Ult : get when you can , awsome


REMEMBER TO SPACE OUT YOUR ABILITIES FOR YOUR PASSIVE


Guide Top

Creeping

As i Said i dont jungle for farm u can just lasthit and late game u W and atack you can also use your spells to get your passive to get the bonus damage

Summary

Overall I love Riven and this is my first guide , you can judge me but not too hard rate it if it worked for you and if you really like it leave a comment on wich champion i can do next
