Introduction to Riven

Hi! My name is IcedChocolateTea. I'm a Gold V ADC main on the NA server. I have played Riven for a couple months and decided that it's about time that I make a guide to help others learn the basics of Riven. Have fun reading my guide and I hope that you learn something from it. :)

Starting Items

(Ignite Start)
Long Sword + 3 Health Potion This start grants more damage and some early sustain to play aggressive, and try to snowball off of an early kill.

(Teleport Start)
Doran's Blade + Health Potion When I do this start, I usually take wolves or raptor, and recall. Then, I buy 4-5 health potions and teleport back to lane with a level 2 advantage and more sustain. This usually results with a kill.
