Introduction.: I

HI! And welcome to my pretty short riven champion guide i try to go as depth as i can but this is my very first guide so i hope it's ''ok'' that it's not very pro that you might be used to. Ok so im going to try explain what i can about riven and maby improve your way of play style or just show you another there is no use to completely mimic me becuas you will learn new stuff the more you play with riven i cant really explain everything in these texts it must be felt by you so these are some really good tips and will probaly help you if you are new to riven but as i said earlier this is a really ''un pro guide'' and im not from any english speaking countries so if i write something really wrong please comment so i notice and change it thanks! Well hope you will enjoy as much as i enjoyed making it! One more thing riven was my very first bought champion on my league of legends account.here is the IMG link: http://i47.tinypic.com/6xrzif.png

Runes


I go full damage becuse riven need the damage so bad to her AD based shield Valor for example.

abilities


I start with [Q] becuase it's good for farming in the very ealry. I choose to continue with Ki Burst because it stuns the target and also doheavy damage.
Then i choose Valor because it's a good shield against ganks,other champions abilities like Mystic Shot so i fast can get away or soften the damage i maybe receive. After that i fully upgrade Ki Burst and of course [R] Blade of the Exile .

Masteries


I tried to get as much damage as possible and i also choosed CD which is good when i hunt fast enemies so i can spam [Q] and [E]. Also very good with CD is that i can use my ulti more often. I did want the magic resist, armor and health to improve my early game.

Summoner Spells.: IV

Abilities.: V

Riven Abilities

ACTIVE:Riven steps forward and lashes out in a series of powerful sword slashes that will damage all enemies within 112.5 range. This ability can be activated a second time within 4 seconds, and a third time within 4 seconds of that. The third activation damages enemies within 150 range and also knocks them back 225 units. All three strikes deal the same damage.
ACTIVE:Riven damages all enemies within range and stuns them for 0.75 seconds.
ACTIVE:Riven dashes towards the cursor and gains a shield that absorbs a certain amount of damage. The shield dissipates after 2.5 seconds if not already destroyed.
ACTIVE:For 15 seconds, Riven's sword reforms, gaining 20% increased attack damage and 75 range on her basic attacks. Also Broken Wings's normal and third area of effect radii increase to 162.5 and 200, and Ki Burst's area of effect radius increases to 135. She is also granted the ability to use Wind Slash once for the duration.

Items for Both AD builds.: VI

AD
Items (Early Game). AD

most people use Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion that is (NOT) a good choice. Riven is meant to tons of damage thats why i go with Doran's Blade . i hear many people complaining because i have no shoes the reason why is because Riven attacks is her way forward. [(Q)] Broken Wings 3 jumps forwards and directly after that use [(E)] Valor makes Riven rush forwards

Items you should have in early game [ 1. Doran's Blade 2. B. F. Sword 3. Giant's Belt


Items (Mid Game). AD

In mid game, it depends on how many kills, assists, Minions, etc. How much gold you have, but I would probably think that you have received enough for these items -> [ 4. Vampiric Scepter 5. Mercury's Treads 6. The Bloodthirster .<-(ok when you come to this item, it's time to start farm to build on the damage that Riven really should have. You must have at least 100 or more Minions now.) ok and 7. Frozen Mallet ] <-(if you can not afford Frozen Mallet now you can buy depending on how much gold you have ( Phage ) or ( Ruby Crystal ) is what you should buy)



Items (Late Game). AD

I usually myself is not able to afford all items but the last two i usually buy atleast. 8. Last Whisper 9. Guardian Angel . <- You probably will not be able to afford this item, start by buying Chain Vest . 10. The Bloodthirster . And when to buy the last item you will be forced to sell Doran's Blade .


guardian angel.

If you die alot with Riven you might want to buy Guardian Angel before you buy Last Whisper .



Items purchasing. AD

Doran's Blade -> B. F. Sword -> Giant's Belt -> Vampiric Scepter -> Boots of Speed -> Mercury's Treads -> The Bloodthirster -> Ruby crystall -> Long Sword -> Phage -> Frozen Mallet -> Pickaxe -> Last Whisper -> Chain Vest -> Guardian Angel -> (Sell) Doran's Blade -> B. F. Sword -> The Bloodthirster .

Tanky
Items (Early Game). Tanky

most people use Boots of Speed and 3x Health Potion that is (NOT) a good choice. Riven is meant to tons of damage thats why i go with Doran's Blade . i hear many people complaining because i have no shoes the reason why is because Riven attacks is her way forward. [(Q)] Broken Wings 3 jumps forwards and directly after that use [(E)] Valor makes Riven rush forwards

Items you should have in early game [ 1. Doran's Blade 2. Long Sword 3. Cloth Armor
4. Boots of Speed 5. Vampiric Scepter


Items (MID Game). Tanky

In mid game, it depends on how many kills, assists, Minions, etc. How much gold you have, but I would probably think that you have received enough for these items -> [ 6. Wriggle's Lantern 7. Mercury's Treads 8. Hexdrinker . You should have at least 100 or more Minions now.) ok and 9. Phage



Items (Late Game). Tanky

10. Maw of Malmortius 11. Frozen Mallet 12. Last Whisper 13. Guardian Angel 14. The Bloodthirster And when to buy the last item you will be forced to sell Wriggle's Lantern .


Items purchasing. Tanky

Doran's Blade -> Long Sword -> Cloth Armor -> Boots of Speed -> Boots of Speed -> Vampiric Scepter -> Wriggle's Lantern -> Mercury's Treads -> Hexdrinker -> Maw of Malmortius -> Frozen Mallet -> Last Whisper -> Guardian Angel -> (sell) -> Wriggle's Lantern -> The Bloodthirster

Summary.: VII

Ok so we have learned that riven need damage for her abilities and early game she should be very tanky as we can tell when we read the Masteries and runes i made to make her strong in the beginning to the end of the game via not to choose so much diffrent runes or masteries i enstead used the in-game items exept CD masteries to make her strong thru the whole game.

EARLY & GANKS
Riven and Irelia are like made ​​for each other, And as long as both stay away from Darius Apprehend when he's in the bushes or near the tower. Darius is basically matchless because Riven will buy Wriggle's Lantern which makes them immune to ganks if not Hecarim use Onslaught of Shadows through a wall so you cant escape that gank.

MID GAME
Riven and Irelia should now have won the lane and destoyed the tower and have started help others to push.

LATE GAME
This is very hard to tell how it will be in Late game maybe we already ''won'' or it went worse for us but i do think that with janna and alistar we are pretty strong in team fight and therefore we push faster after team fights we won that could make us win. Also they have Blitz crank who can pull us ''1 by 1'' into the other team and that would be bad for that person. We have no tank but riven is a very tanky champ and irelia is pretty tanky to i guess so it's not that big of problem. Please leave a comment why my team or the other team would win/lose.
