Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi guys, this is my first guide. First of all, English is not my first language, so there may be lack of vocabulary and grammar. I decided to make this Riven jungle guide since I tried it out at coop AI then moved on to PvP games and I actually won all of those games. I did outplay laning Riven few times and owned jungling Nocturne every time. Since I havent seen any jungle Riven guide, so yeah, I'll make one.
Any critics are gladly welcomed.
For marks, I take Greater Mark of Desolation which will give you more damage throughout the game. For seals, I use Greater Seal of Attack Speed. You might think that this is weird. For me, these seals, give me extra damage output which will result in faster jungle / killing once you start to gank. If you dont feel safe enough, you can use Greater Seal of Evasion or Greater Seal of Armor As for glyphs, Greater Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction. Again, these glyphs will make jungle faster. With blue buff, your Ult will only have 40 secs cooldown.
Masteries are pretty straight forward. 21/0/9. Taking
, those extra 5 golds every 65 secs is nice. Having
also intended to make the jungling faster. Maximum
will go along with your glyphs.
Thats pretty much it.
I usually start at double Golem. If you can ask for a leash, that good, but if u cant, thats okay. Use your Broken Wings (make sure that your cursor points the right way) and auto attack. Use your Smite. Use your hp pots as needed. Then you will level up, take Ki Burst as your second skill. Move on to the Wraiths. Then to the Wolves. Use your Smite whenever possible. Usually I will gank bot at this time. However, check your map. Look for opportunities to gank. But if its top who needs the gank, its better for you to teleport back and shop then gank top.
Then go back to double golems, wraiths, wolves, and then take Blue buff. then gank again.
Take red buff once you have Madred's Razor.
Once you finish this circle, you should start ganking whenever possible. Dont forget to ping your teammates so they know that you are coming to gank.
Blade of the Exile --> Valor --> Ki Burst --> auto attack --> Broken Wings --> auto attack --> auto attack --> auto attack --> Wind Slash
R --> E --> W --> attacks --> Q --> attacks --> R
As you will take Flash, you can use it to surprise your enemy champs.
So, Blade of the Exile --> Flash --> Ki Burst --> auto attack --> Broken Wings --> attack --> attack --> Valor and repeat the sequence.
R --> Flash --> W --> attack --> Q --> attacks --> E
Broken Wings and Valor can be used not only to attack, but also to run away from your enemy. Just make sure that your cursor is pointing the right way.
My Core Items
Wriggle's Lantern Mercury's Treads Frozen Mallet Warmog's Armor Atma's Impaler The Bloodthirster
With these items, you will have more than enough HP to initiate teamfights, go out, then come back in. And your damage is not low too.
For the last item, it will depends on your enemy champs.
If they are AP based, then get Force of Nature
If they are AD based, then get Thornmail
If they are tanky, then get Last Whisper
If they have too many CCs, then get Banshee's Veil
Again, this is my first guide so I know I lack of everyhting. Hopefully, you will try it, and post it here. Any critics / comments are gladly welcomed.
Here I'll show few of my results.
