Introduction

Hey its my first build, so Im just going to give a general overview of the build and my mindset etc. Riven is a great champion who is amazing at the solo top role and also can carry with the good damage from this build. With this build, I never lose top. Never! I always overall win the lane, but not always the game. Even against the best solo top champions such as Wukong, Irelia, GP etc. This build is a good carry build and it helps carry your team with a lot of damage, health and disturbance. In this build i am mostly focusing on the build not the guide. If you want me to write the guide with pictures etc, i can.

Runes

I generally go with armor runes and magic resist runes. After that I use common armor pen runes, but also throw in some attack damage marks. Then i have usually go with 2 attack damage quints and 1 armor pen quints. Attack damage is very good on riven and very useful for picking up early kills, but it is always important to have a lot of armor penetration too.

Solo Top

For lvls 1-3, I am very passive, trying to get the cs and not push the lane to much. When i reach lvl 3, i get aggresive. Use ur E to get closer and then use ur skill combos to kill the enemy. Remember to space out your skills so you can get the full benefit of your passive.

Summoner Spells

Take flash it is the greatest spell in the game and can be used to get away, chase or initiate for your team.
Exhaust is usually my 2nd summoner spell, because it is really powerful 1v1 on solo top lane and is useful late game.
Ignite is also another option, it isn't as good as exhaust because exhaust allows you to get your whole combo and passive into the mix of the attack.

Items

Start off with 2 doran blades, then get boots. After that get your brutalizer. The brutalizer is great armor pen and is also great damage for the laning phase. Then bloodthirster, atmogs etc. Bloodthirster is a great item on riven because she gets a LOT of damage when it is farmed and good lifesteal for sustain in lane and battles. Remember to farm up your bloodthirster.

Summary

So, this build is really for the build and not the guide. I will write a guide if people actually want too, but i just wrote this for the build since i do not like the other builds on the website. I mean everyone play's differently, and build is very important too. So read the guide and try out the build. Leave good critiques please! Thank you ;).

Jungling

I can add a jungling build if people really want, but i perfer solo top always.
