Riven - The basics

It's important to learn how to play Riven the most efficient way possible. This is simply done by pausing for a basic attack between ability uses. Her passive grant a bonus damage to every basic attack, this can stack up to 3 times, although the damage will be much greater if you get in a basic attack between each ability on account of her "low" attack speed.

Skill Sequence

The skill sequence to aim for with Riven is actually none, you cant simply use the same sequence over and over with her. The key though is to place interrupts in the form of W or last hit of Q sequence in the favor of you and your opponents. An example for a clever use of the W for a interrupt is if you meet Katarina, everytime she rushes for ulti, wait till she activates and BOOM, no ulti. This gives your team the advantage in the form of the other team only have 4 ultimates so long as Riven is close. Similiar cases is when medium ranged champs harasses the group you can dash out with E and then stun with W just long enough for team to catch up.
