Threat Champion Notes
1
Gnar W to stop his E, E whenever he Q's. Wait for Mega Gnar to go down then all in him.
1
Nasus He can't do anything to you till 200+ stacks. Use this time window to kill him a lot and snowball the lane.
1
Ryze All in him levels 1 - 7, Ryze needs items to be relevant. Riven excells in this match up, dont be scared of him.
1
Vladimir He is strong at 9, Riven is strong from level 1. All in him every time you get the chance before his power spike at 9.
1
Yasuo Abuse him early, he cannot out trade you until he hits 3 items.

Introduction

Hello everyone! I have mained Riven for about 2 seasons now and have gone through her extensive changes throughout season 3. I think that she is in a relatively good spot but has a slow early game that I will go over with you.

Runes

The runes for Riven are very selective, depending on what you want to do. I normally go lifesteal quints for the early game sustain if you want to go dorans blade, but you could replace that with physical damage quints if you want to go dorans shield. Other than that, the rest are just standard and should be played how they are.

Ranked Play

I highly recommend learning how to animation cancel with Riven before playing her competitively. It makes your combo much faster and damage output much higher. If you go to YouTube, type in animation canceling with Riven, you should find some very extensive guides that are very explanatory. (It's hard to show without video T.T)

Skill Sequence

Your basic poke combo is going to be Q>AA>Q>AA>Q>AA>W>AA>E away. Your all in combo is E>R>W>>AA>Q>AA>Q>AA>Q>AA>AA>Windslash. You can hit E then R immediately after to cancel their animations.
