Threats to Riven with this build
|Yasuo||Yasuo is very easy to beat as Riven. You can play aggresive early, but if you get ganked and yas starts to get fed, play slightly safer.|
|Nasus||A very easy champion to face against. Zone him early and deny farm/stacks for Nasus.|

Here is the standard level up of your abilities. If you are playing against a counter such as garen

Level 1 Camp
Explained in brief detail in my build, I will explain what the level 1 camp is. As the top laner you will take the raptors/wolves depending on what side you are on. After you have killed the mobs go back to base and buy the max amount of potions. Make sure to take your Q: Broken Wings
Watch this video presented by BoxBox.
Here is a map created to show the areas of where you may wall jump on Summoner's Rift. You will use your third charge of your Q Broken Wings. You will run close to one of the walls shown on the map and jump over it. I suggest you practice for at least 15 minutes in a custom match
Riven is a very high reward pick and is not banned a lot in low elo. Make sure to learn how to use her abilites appropriately before going into ranked play. Learn how you face against matchups.
