Threat Champion Notes
2
Gnar Predict and dodge his q in lane. Fight him when his e is down. When he is in Mega Gnar form, predict his w. Bring TP (Very opinionated)
2
Aatrox Dodge q and e by predicting them. Normally builds AD/AttSp, thus leading to an easy snowball lane. Bring TP or Ignite
2
Sion Q and e can be very easily sidestepped. Fight him while his q is down. Usually gets tanky, but is easy to snowball off early. Bring TP
2
Jarvan IV Dodge e-q and q with Riven's e. If Jarvan wastes his e as poke or misses it, he can easily be all in'd. Bring TP

Introduction

Hi, I'm Exiled, a diamond one trick pony Riven.

Riven is by far, the most fun champion in League of Legends for myself (and probably many others). Her playstyle is unique to herself and if her kit is utilized perfectly, it can result in many fancy plays. Riven can carry games solo very easily with experience.

This guide is mainly teaching the playstyles around other champions kits. Focusing mainly on top lane Riven.

P.S. This is my first guide I have created, please leave feedback to let me know where I could improve on in the discussion!
