Introduction

This is my guide for jungle Riven, I know she can be a solo top so, if you criticize me just don't go any farther into this guide.


Guide Top

Runes

For runes i recommend flat ad for an easy early jungle route since Riven has high base armor. The armor seals also allow you to take less damage from jungle mobs (obviously) along with your bladed armor (we'll cover Masteries next chapter.) The flat mr allows you to take damage from mages before getting a hexdrinker. The armor pen quints are for one reason. Riven does TERRIBLE against other tanks like Malphite and Rammus.

Masteries

I like the masteries as 21-9-0 because it allows you to do unmatched damage at level 6. It also allows you to really "execute" heheheheheh (pun intended) your targets with Wind slash. Now, I know what you're asking "why not go 9-21-0 since you're a bruiser?" this is why. You NEED the ad per level, life steal and executioner. You can sustain, tank up more late game because of the ad per level and execute your targets like i mentioned earlier. Also, Riven has high base armor.

Situational items

Guardian angel - Allows you to tank up, but gives no offensive bonus
Force of nature- for out of control ap casters like veigar and leblanc
Thornmail - for out of control ad carries like fiora and tryndaqueer
Sunfire cape- idk why always wanted to try it lol
Last whisper- shred dat armor! no seriously, shred their armor
Infinity edge- Stomp em' in the nuts.. no, but seriously use this item if you're really dominating and wanna get a luxery

Team Work

Always, always, always cooperate with your team when you gank! Make sure you ping and lead a gank with valor into broken wings and ki burst. Early game (before level 6) you don't have that much damage so you need to make sure your lane cooperates with you when you gank. Don't spoon feed kills like a sejuani... but on the other hand don't go around ksing like your master yi or Fiora.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Ult gives a large amount of ad
You don't need to build attack speed
Can build tanky and still shred
Cons:
No real escape other than valor which is a minor dash...
Ineffective against tanks like Malphite and Rammus
Very cd dependent

Summary

I'll work on it later.. sort of in a rush right now.
