Intro

This build uses Riven's rediculously high attack damage to quickly and efficiently assassinate enemy champions. You'll be surprised how quickly they go down.


Guide Top

Abilities

Runic Blade- after using an ability your next auto-attack will do bonus damage, but it only stacks up to three times. More about this later

Broken Wings- this will be your major damage dealing ability late game. Don't be afraid to wait a couple seconds in between combos.

Ki Burst- This is your stun but also deals a fair amount of damage.

Valor- This is your dash that gives you a bonus shield.

Blade of the exile- Bonus damage and range. Plus, while it's activated you get to use Wind Slash once, this is useful for finishing off enemy champs that are running away.

Runic Blade is a good source of damage but by hitting all abilities in rapid succession you waste a ton of damage potential. RB only stacks to 3 so by staggering your abilities you can soak up all the extra charges and your damage output will be that much higher. That being said let's get on to champion fights. Open with Valor to dash up close to the champion. Then stun with KB. Now, while paying attention to your stacks of RB unload Broken wings, slowing down to accommodate RB. After this initial burst use abilities according to cooldown and situation.

Play Style

With this build your attack damage will get somewhere near 500 depending on what stack of sword of the occult you manage to get. In team fights don't be afraid to get in the middle and go ape****. If they ignore you congrats you just got a pentakill. If they get smart and focus you, you die but so did they and you still have 3-4 team members to control the map while they wait to rez.
In 1v1 be a bit more careful. If you can surprise them and get a few hits off before they target you then stay your ground. You'll win. Otherwise stay back until you see an opening. Riven cannot sustain combat very well.
By being patient and waiting for the right moment then going all out you're body count will stack up in no time.
