Introduction

Wadduuup! This is my short guide on how to primarily build Riven. This is my way, and in my opinion the most optimal way to play her. Constructive criticism appreciated.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:

Very mobile (Great at chasing and escaping)
Great farmer
Insane burst
One of the best level 2s in the game with Q and W
Aoe stun and knock-up
Scales great with AD.

Cons:
Countered by CC
Can't do much vs champions who are ranged and fast (im looking at you kennen)
Getting banned more and more


Guide Top

Runes

You want to have 9x armor seals. Always. Pretty much every champion in league has a low base armor, and most top champions played nowadays are AD based. This is a must.

You want 9x Armor marks because the more AD the merrier. Heh.

I'm going with 9x CDR glyphs. This lets you use your skills more frequently in combat, and helps you out a lot early game. You can also go with magic resist glyphs if youre laning versus Ap based champions, such as Elise, Kennen and/or Singed.
