Introduction

Hello, first of all, my name is Carrotmold. I am a Diamond 1 player who mains Riven, and mained
Riven to get to there all the way from Bronze. With this guide, even you can get to Diamond with enough determination. Anything is possible!


Guide Top

Rune setup

The runes I use on Riven are ALL ATTACK DAMAGE IN EVERY SLOT. This means:
[*] 9x AD Reds
[*] 9x AD Yellows
[*] 9x AD Blues
[*] 3x AD Quints

You may wonder why I use this setup. First of all, Riven's E (her shield) scales off of Attack Damage. You kill 2 stones with 1 bird by using this setup by being very tanky and having a huge damage output.

Masteries

You can see the masteries I use in this guide above.

I think it's very self explanatory why I use these masteries. Cooldowns are an integral part of playing Riven well, and having the extra 5% CDR is very helpful to execute combos in the most efficient way possible. These masteries synergizes with the build.

Items

The items in this build give Riven a ridiculous damage output. Sheen has great synergy with Manamune. Once you get Muramana stacked, you pack a wallop with your Combo. Get Sword of the Occult because you will be getting a lot of kills which benefits you even more.

Skill Sequence

I don't take my ult points as soon as they are available. It's more efficient to get more points in your other abilities first.

Ranked Play

In ranked games, or games in general that you use this build, you want to have a hyperaggressive play style. Don't be afraid to all in, especially at level 2. Snowball off of your early advantage, it's especially good for Sword of the Occult. You will be able to carry off of this alone, if you think you're good enough.

Summary

If you're struggling to get out of bronze, trust me, I was there. USE THIS BUILD!! I promise you will see results as long as you stick with it. Thank you for viewing my guide.
