Introduction

This is a tanky-dps Riven. If you can get the skill sequence down, Riven will do tons of damage while tanking fairly well.


Guide Top

Items

You can change the Ionian boots for Mercury treads against heavy cc teams but Ionian is nice because of the cooldown reduction.

Other than that the items are self explanatory. Doran's Shield > Doran's Blade because you are melee and will be harassed hard. You have to try to balance getting dmg items and health to be a threat while being hard to take down.

Skill Sequence

So this is the hardest part for Rivens.

BW = Broken Wing
AA = Auto Attack
KS = Ki Shout
Va = Valor

So the general chase sequence is...
BW --> AA --> BW --> AA --> KS --> BW --> AA --> Va --> Repeat.

You can use Va at any time to get closer depending on how fast the opponent is...

In order to harass the opponent stay in the bushes and try to get behind them...

Then Va behind the target --> AA --> KS --> AA --> BW --> AA...
Usually you can get this sequence in but if you can use more BW and AA to drop them further...
