Introduction

Well this is my first build and I thought, why not start with the newest champ, Riven, the Exile. this build focuses on AD (obviously) and some survivability to survive those close encounters. Any feedback or constructive criticism will be GREATLY appreciated.

Skill Sequence

I chose to focus mainly on maxing out Broken Wings first, while still leveling up Ki Burst and Valor. By doing this it doesn't exactly give you the best damage early on, but gives you lower CD's and increased effectiveness out of all your skills, and since you don't have any resource to worry about, the lower the CD, the better.

Items

Will update once I've had more time to play around with her, but for now I basically go for some AD and CDR early, while saving the survivability items for late game. Really all depends on the other teams comp / what they're building.

Summoner Spells

Riven has great mobility, I was gonna take ghost over flash for chases and escapes, but considering she doesn't really have any stuns / slows for abilities (I know she has a stun, but at only half a second by the time you hit em with it and start running again, it's already worn off) flash seems to be the best, followed by your Broken Wings and Valor to help gain some distance.

Summary

Again I plan on playing her a lot more and will most likely make some serious overhauls to this guide, but for now I'll leave it at this, again, any pointers would be very nice :)
