Teamfighting

Pretty simple. The point is to flash to the back line and kill all the carries. It can be pretty hard though, because of cc. If enemy team has a lot cc like Amumu, Nautilius, Leona etc. you should always wait until they use their cc. When you flash to the back line you should use e ult cancel before you f so you can do your combos fast as possible. Shy combo is imo best combo for killing carries, but it can be pretty hard to do.

Tips and combos

Fast combo:

Animation canceling with e:
You can use riven's e to animation cancel q or r (both Blade of the exile and wind slash). This is done by pressing e before q or r. You should use this mostly on r cancel, because it has a long cast time.

Hydra/w animation cancel:
You can use hydra and w at the same time by just simply using hydra first and then w rapidly.
