Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi! My name is Bidip 'CoolCat666'. I played League of Legends from S2 but still I am currently in bronze trying to get to gold or diamond this season.I m just a Bronze elo player :( but i always try my best to win gamees :)
I think 'Faker' also known as 'BarcodeKiller' first played riven mid and i was surprised but also inspired to play riven mid. Before faker had played riven mid, I mained riven top. I started playing mid riven and I had a success in winning mid lane and also winning games. My team called me a troll and told the enemy team to report me for assisting enemy team but later in the games my team's adc will tell me to carry us xD.]
Pros / Cons
- Clear minion waves easily
- Win trades easliy
- Gap closer/ Escapes easily from ganks
- Getting riven first in rank may make the enemy team get her counter
- Good defenses
- Snowballs extremely hard
- Need no mana and can get Wraiths and Wolves easily
- Eaasy to make plays with
- May result in death if you fail your combos
Flash good when your in trouble. Ignite good when you want to brust your enemy. Ult 3Q ignite W then Ult again. this will surely kill an enemy. tanks may survive because they are tanks. :(
farm by using Q auto Q auto Q auto on the caster minions in early game/laning face.
push the wave to enemies's turret then go for the your wraiths or their wraiths.
Always get your or enemies's wraiths when lane pushed or gank bot or top.
Before trading get their melee minions then Q basic W right after you Q so they will have little time to react and get stunned by the W. Then again Q basic Q basic them go back to farming with by dashing away using E. when they fight back the E's shield will absorb some damage.
When going for a kill when your still in laning face E to them and when your in the middle of your e use ur ult then W to them if not enought range then E ult in the middle of your E then Q W Basic ignite Q basic Q basic. the damage is done they will not fight you but run and they may flash away to their turret when they r escaping from u. after they flash use ur ult again to use Wind Slash. If not enough range use ur E then Ult or you could just Ult before they flash but higher chance they will flash sideways so they won't be hit by the wind slash os be carefull. :P
PS: Dont forget to use your ignite because your Ult's Wind Slash does more damage the lower your enemy is or if you want to save ignite just in case they die to your combo, do the same combo then Wind Slash then ignite if they r still alive or u can turret dive them if your healthy an they have no CC or escaoing abilities,
Hope it helped you guys on winning your games :)
Please comment so I can improve on my guides and votes too :)
Thanks for your time.
