Introduction


Hi, I'm SweetySweety and play on the EU Nordic & East. I made this guide because I've played Riven a number of games since she was released and find this guide fits her perfectly. I have seen many different item build of her as AD, Burst, Assassin or Off-tank.I hope that you will try my build and post some feedback with possible suggestions or improvements, be it to my item choices, masteries, rune selection, or summoner spells I appreciate the feedback.

Rune Setup

MARK
This rune combine with her passive Runic Blade = AWESOME

Greater Mark of Desolation If you prefer this rune it goes equally well

SEAL
These are to compensate for Riven's fairly low base armor and give her some more survivability early game.

If you have the IP to buy this and would prefer this, they're not a bad choice. I'm just not a fan of building dodge on Riven.

GLYPH
I'm trying to build a little magic resist in order not to be so squishy.

This rune is very good at Riven but since I already built cooldown reduction on items it's may be better with magic resist.

QUINTESSENCE
Greater Quintessence of Desolation
Honestly, there are a number of Quint who would be a good choice Greater Quintessence of Health Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage are great choices for Riven. I chose Armor Pen because my goal is to make her a real threat early game, and still get benefit from my Quints later into the game.
