Introduction

This is my very first build on MOBAfire so please leave feedback.

Without further adieu here is, Riven the Exile.

Runes

By looking at the specialties of Riven I've noticed that she doesn't do too much damage with her skills. Therefore by buying armor penetration marks and quints this enables her to damage her enemies more effectively with her attacks. Also by grabbing critical chance and attack speed you have a higher chance of killing the opponent.

Masteries

As Riven I built her 21-0-9 choosing the masteries that focus on attack and armor penetration. Then I decided to increase her regeneration rate with the masteries in utility so she can lane for a longer duration

Items

This is the part that counts. Like I mentioned before Riven's skills. But when built with armor penetration, Riven ends up being more of an attack damage nuke that can take down even tanks. I like to start off with Doran's Blade mainly for the health and attack that it gives. Then after laning for a while I go and buy the berserker greaves. Then the sheen is your next item. The sheen is a must use item on Riven because if you time it correctly after each use of broken wings the sheens effect would be active and you deal bonus damage including your passive. This is extremely helpful especially when you end up with the Trinity force where the damage is increased even further. After getting trinity you build the two main armor penetration items, last whisperer and the ghost blade. If the game ends up dragging on and you finish the ghost blade you have a choice between building a bloodthirster or a black cleaver first. I usually build the bloodthirster for the extra lifesteal but if I dont end up building the bloodthirster first Ill buy the vampiric scepter.

Skill Sequence

For skill sequence it is very common...

Q > Auto > Q > Auto > Q > Auto

To engage in a battle or start a gank

E into the enemy

E > W > Auto > Q > Auto > Q > Auto > Q> Auto

If you have your ultimate its rather easy its just up to you to figure out when to use Wind Slash.

Therefore if you do have your ultimate

R > E > W > Auto > Q > Auto > Q > Auto > Q> Auto

For ganking and initiating
