Introduction

Well This is a guide towards a Carry Riven. I've played Riven for around 4 games so far. Level 30 700+ games played. This build was able to get me 11-19+ Kills per game. Less than 10 deaths and easy first bloods. Riven is a Leesin/Talon type Champion. Chasing abilities similar to that of Nocturne. Riven doesn't build ATK speed but more towards ATK and tankyness. Riven is probably one of the most mobile champions in the game atm.So why not begin now.

Runes

The runes I run for Riven are
9x Armor Pen Marks
9x Flat Armor Seals
9x Magic per/level glyphs

This is a rune page for sustaining laning hits and harassment. Also for dealing outrageous dmg.

Masteries

Rivens Masterys are similar to that of tanky DPS champions.
21-9-0
The increased Exhaust duration and extra armor keeps you from dieing and will end up winning the game.

Skill Sequence

Rivens Skill sequence is very simple
Damage
Q-w-E-Q-W-E etc.
Max Q then E
This is recommended towards players who play very agressive and like to harass alot.
Riven Should Harass early game first by each time they come close Q atk Q Atk to get them lower. When low enough initiate with Valor and Ki blast and Q and you got a kill.

Less squishy
Q-e-W
Max E First then Q
This is more recommended towards players who tend to take alot of hits.
This is more support early game than Carry so you wouldn't expect many kills compared to agressive way.

Summoner Spells

Summoner spells i recommend would be Exhaust and Ignite. Flash is good too but she's already too mobile. Ghost is okay. Riven is also a dodging kind of character. If you're not good at dodging you might wanna invest in cleanse.
Pros Cons
Exhaust Clarity(No Mana)
Flash Rally ( No use)
Ignite Clairvoyance(Ad Carry not support)
Ghost Teleport ( Already Mobile)
Cleanse Heal( Not Needed)


Guide Top

Farming

Preferably Lane with someone with cc and gap closer.
Example -> Xin zhao, Wukong, Talon, WW, Amumu etc.
Farming last hit minions while harassing Enemy champions with Q-Atk-Q-Atk-Q-Atk
Higher levels 4-6 Start trying to get kills R-E-W-Q-atk-Q etc.
Past experience-Quadra Kill It was also very close to being a penta but the Galio didnt come in till 10 seconds after.

Summary

This concludes my Short summary on Riven Exile on her ways of battles.
This is just my Build pretty sure there are plenty of others. But i see this as the most beneficial to a team. So if you wanna be a hard acrry to your team. This is the build you want.

Leave comments or Opinions on bottom.
Hope you have fun carrying your teams :).
